One of the most intriguing speaker systems we've seen at the past two CEDIA Expos was the setup from Theory Audio Design, the new company headed by Pro Audio Technology's Paul Hales. Even as recently as this past CEDIA, though, it was a little uncertain when these new, more affordable speakers would start to ship.
Now we know the answer. Theory Audio Design announced today that three high-performance soundbars, two different subwoofers, and an all-purpose surround/overead speaker are shipping starting today, along with the ALC-1809, 9-channel Amplified Loudspeaker Controller. Read on for full details from the press release below:
Theory Audio Design, new loudspeaker and electronics manufacturer renowned for startling acoustic performance and refined aesthetics announces it is now shipping its first seven products worldwide.
Loudspeaker models in the Theory line-up consist of three high output soundbars, the sb65, sb75, and sb85, designed to perfectly match with 65-inch, 75-inch and 85-inch flat panel TVs, the sb25 high output multi-purpose loudspeaker, and the sub12 and sub15 passive subwoofer models with 12-inch and 15-inch drivers respectively.
At the heart of the Theory line is the ALC-1809, 9-channel Amplified Loudspeaker Controller. With 1,800W and 96kHz/32-bit digital signal processing, the ALC-1809 is the AV version of an integrator's swiss army knife, combining the functionality of five products in one: a multi-channel DSP processor, high power multichannel home theater and distributed audio amplifier, multichannel mixing amplifier, multichannel bass manager, and high-resolution loudspeaker processor, all in a stylish, 1U package.
"It has been an exciting journey bringing the Theory Audio Design brand and products to life," said Theory's founder and product designer, Paul Hales. "Theory is unique in that it marries professional audio componentry and performance with contemporary design for high-end residential and commercial environments. The performance of Theory products is genuinely startling, which is why the brand has received so much positive press from the initial product previews alone. We are ecstatic to now be shipping the first seven products."
Theory products are now available worldwide. Interested dealers, reps, and international distributors are encouraged to reach out to Theory's director of sales, Joshua Trujillo, at: [email protected] for pricing details, and to become an authorized reseller.
