JACKSONVILLE, FL - January 8, 2007 - Phase Technology, the leading manufacturer of high -fidelity speakers for custom home entertainment systems, has been honored by being selected as one of the Ten Best Audio/Video Products of 2006.
In its January/February 2007 issue of Robb Report Home Entertainment, the editors chose Phase Tech's dARTS 650 In -Wall system as one of the most significant new products of the year. This award follows their review of the system in the September/October issue of the magazine, which joined rave reviews in three other magazines in extolling the sonic superiority of the dARTS technology.
Phase Technology introduced dARTS at CEDIA 2005, after fifteen years of research and development into digital control of all aspects of speaker performance. dARTS relies on perfectly -matched speakers, driven by a multi -channel amplifier with very powerful onboard DSP to control crossovers, time and phase alignment, and frequency contouring. To complete this unique platform Phase Tech partnered with Audyssey Laboratories to include a customized version of their MultEQ XT room correction program, which analyzes each room's acoustic parameters and develops correction parameters to remove the room's anomalies, making the dARTS system sound the same in any environment.
Ken Hecht, president of Phase Technology and developer of the dARTS systems, reacted to this award by saying, "We are so pleased and honored to be selected by Home Entertainment for this award. Robb Report's publications all set a benchmark in discussing only the very best quality products available in the world, and to have the editors choose our dARTS system as one of their Ten Best is very gratifying and exciting. We received several "Best of CEDIA" awards when we introduced dARTS, and several fantastic reviews in the magazines since then, but to have Brent Butterworth and the staff at Home Entertainment summarize our efforts by saying, 'This is one of the best audio systems we have ever heard,' is the perfect end to a perfect day!"
Phase Technology's dARTS systems are available in two different sizes, each featuring three different cabinet styles: FS (free -standing, very dramatic lacquer or veneered finishes), CB (custom built -in, black painted enclosures for mounting inside cabinetry or behind perforated movie screens), and IW (in -wall, as reviewed in Home Entertainment). Custom sizes, shapes and finishes are also available in both sizes.
The dARTS System will be displayed at CES booth 21416 (South Hall Level 1) & demonstrated at the Las Vegas Hilton Central Tower Suite 1250
