RealTraps Introduces MiniTrap LE Series

New Milford, CT, USA - May 21, 2004 - RealTraps is well -known in the world of pro audio and recording studios for their MiniTrap high -performance bass traps and acoustic panels. Today they announced a new, more attractive "LE" model intended specifically for the audiophile and home theater market. The new MiniTrap LE features the same outstanding low frequency absorption that all RealTraps products are known for but with a much more stylish appearance. And unlike original MiniTraps, the MiniTrap LE models include an integrated stand to avoid the need for permanent wall mounting. They can be placed in corners for superior absorption at low frequencies or against the walls for general echo and ambience reduction. The LE series is available in black, white, and off -white to blend well with any décor, and can be ordered without the integrated stand.

According to RealTraps co -owner Ethan Winer, "The main problem in most listening rooms is standing waves that cause severe variations in the low frequency response. Many audiophiles cover their walls with panels made of foam or rigid fiberglass, which makes the room too dead at mid and high frequencies while doing nothing for the low end. The MiniTrap LE is much more absorbent than foam or fiberglass at low frequencies, so it does a superior job overall and with fewer pieces. Like the original MiniTrap, the new LE model excels in the bass range and has intentionally lower absorption at higher frequencies to avoid making the room dead sounding. The MiniTrap LE is also Class A fire rated."

Complete product details and performance data are on the RealTraps web site www.realtraps.com/minitrap_le.htm. The site also provides advice on treating common room problems and offers a detailed explanation of acoustic product testing methods. The MiniTrap LE is available directly from the manufacturer for only $299.99 each.
