Triad Adds Atmos Speaker Modules to Bronze and Silver Series

By |


Triad-Atmos-Modules.jpgTriad has added two Atmos modules to its speaker line. Designed to sit atop the company's Bronze and Silver LCR speakers (or any other flat-top speaker), the new Bronze and and Silver Atmos modules feature up-firing drivers to aim Atmos height effects toward the ceiling to be reflected back toward the listener. The Bronze ($500 each) has four 2-inch drivers, while the Silver ($600) has four 3-inch drivers. The speakers�are available now in a variety of colors and finishes.

From Triad
Custom made-in-the-USA manufacturer Triad Speakers, Inc. has announced the expansion of its Dolby Atmos loudspeaker offerings to include Dolby Atmos enabled height modules in its Bronze and Silver series. Used in conjunction with LCRs to achieve the full effects of Dolby Atmos, the module's function is to direct overhead effects towards the ceiling, which is reflected towards the listener. While ideally mated with matching Triad LCRs, the modules can be used with other front channel speakers. MSRP is $500 and $600 per module, respectively.

With Dolby Atmos, sound comes alive from all directions, including overhead, to fill the home theater with astonishing clarity, power, detail, and depth. To achieve the immersive moving audio experience of Dolby Atmos without using separate in-ceiling speakers to capture overhead effects, required is either in-room main channel LCR speakers with integrated height channels (i.e. Triad's InRoom Bronze or Silver LR-H speakers) or Dolby Atmos enabled height modules used in concert with LCRs.

Each Triad module consists of an upward firing top array optimized to bounce sound effects off the ceiling: the Bronze is comprised of four 2-inch drivers; the Silver incorporates four 3-inch drivers. Each module aesthetically complements its InRoom Bronze or Silver LCR counterpart. The module either sits atop the LCR or is placed in close proximity appropriate for its performance such as in a cabinet or on a wall.

In 2014, Triad introduced its first integrated Dolby Atmos loudspeaker solution, the InRoom Bronze LR-H. Last year the company upped the ante with the even higher-performing version, the InRoom Silver LR-H. According to Triad founder and CEO Larry Pexton, the company's Dolby Atmos loudspeaker offerings are the best-performing in the custom residential channel today.

The Triad Dolby Atmos enabled height modules are passive, therefore require Dolby Atmos Audio Video Receivers or Preamp-Processors/Amp combinations to power them. The Bronze and Silver modules are available in a wide variety of colors and finishes including custom paint-matched or veneered to match the d�cor of the room. To make a complete system, the modules are ideally complemented by Triad LCRs, center channel speakers and subwoofers.
