8 January 2007
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
WOODBURY, NY - At CES 2007, Infinity is showcasing its expanded Total Solutions lineup of elegantly styled, high -performance home theater loudspeakers and systems, including its new TSS 3 -in -1 integrated left -center -right (LCR) loudspeaker. The TSS 3 -in -1 combines the left, center and right front speakers of a home theater system in a single enclosure that's slim in design, yet delivers expansive multichannel sound.
The TSS -1200, TSS -800 and TSS -500 home theater loudspeaker systems are also on exhibit, all of which combine striking appearance with superlative performance and versatile installation options. A selection of additional Total Solutions models is featured at CES in the Infinity suite at the Las Vegas Hilton, January 8 - 11, 2007.
Paul Bente, president, Home Products Division, Harman Consumer Group, noted: "Since its introduction, our Total Solutions series has proven itself as one of our most acclaimed product lines ever, earning rave reviews from consumers, critics and dealers worldwide. With the addition of the TSS 3 -in -1 to the series, we now offer a multichannel speaker for home entertainment systems where space is limited or placing speakers to the sides of the television is impractical, yet where uncompromising sound quality is required."
TSS 3 -in -1: Space -Saving Design and Exceptional Multichannel Sound
The Infinity TSS 3 -in -1 enables a host of installation options. It may be wall -mounted using its included swivel -wall -mount bracket, making it ideal for placement above or below flat -panel LCDs or plasma displays, or above a TV set or entertainment center furniture. The TSS 3 -in -1 is also supplied with a support cradle that enables it to be placed on a shelf.
The drivers used in the TSS 3 -in -1 incorporate Infinity's proven Metal Matrix Diaphragm™ (MMD®) driver technology. MMD driver cones are manufactured by anodizing both sides of an aluminum core to a controlled thickness, producing low -mass, highly rigid driver diaphragms that operate with greatly reduced distortion, and deliver extraordinary transient response, resolution and smoothness throughout their entire frequency range. The TSS 3 -in -1 features a 3/4 -inch MMD tweeter and two 3 -1/2 -inch MMD woofers for each (left, center and right) channel.
The TSS 3 -in -1 is acoustically optimized to provide outstanding imaging and dialogue localization and a seamless soundfield across a wide listening area. In common with all Infinity loudspeakers, it employs the company's room -friendly acoustical design principles, which ensure it will provide sonically accurate performance in the widest variety of listening environments and placement positions.
Available in a choice of platinum or charcoal finish, the TSS 3 -in -1 can be combined with Total Solutions surround speakers and a powered subwoofer to create a complete home theater loudspeaker package that offers exceptional installation flexibility, attractive design and superlative performance.
The Infinity Total Solutions TSS 3 -in -1 loudspeaker is currently available at a suggested retail price of $679.
TSS -1200, TSS -800 and TSS -500: Stunning Appearance, Superlative Performance and Versatility
The TSS -1200, TSS -800 and TSS -500 combine striking new styling that is evocative of the company's flagship Infinity Cascade™ loudspeakers with outstanding sound quality and installation flexibility.
The TSS -1200, TSS -800 and TSS -500 packages include four satellite speakers, a center channel loudspeaker and a powered subwoofer. All systems feature advanced drivers and components; the TSS -800 and TSS -1200 systems incorporate MMD driver technology to deliver exceptional fidelity and resolution.
All three systems are distinctively contemporary in appearance. The wall -mountable satellites and center channel feature top and side panels with curved and contoured surfaces, and the subwoofers have a rounded enclosure that fits easily into a room. The TSS -1200, TSS -800 and TSS -500, like all Total Solutions models, perfectly complement ultrathin rear -projection TVs and flat -panel video displays.
All the systems offer versatile installation flexibility. The satellites and center channel can be shelf - or wall -mounted, using either their supplied fixed or adjustable wall -mount brackets, and optional matching floor stands for the satellites are available.
Suggested retail pricing for the Infinity Total Solutions loudspeaker systems is as follows: TSS -1200, SRP: $1,299; TSS -800, SRP: $899; TSS -500, SRP: $549. All systems are currently available in a platinum or charcoal finish.
TSS -4000: Sleek Design and Expansive Sound Quality
Infinity's TSS -4000 loudspeaker system components combine powerful and expansive sound with sleek design that blends with the home environment, making them ideal for larger -scale systems and rooms. Models include the TSS -SAT4000 satellite; the TSS -CENTER4000 center channel loudspeaker; and the TSS -SUB4000 12 -inch, 400 -watt powered subwoofer, which features Infinity's proprietary Room Adaptive Bass Optimization System™ (R.A.B.O.S.™).
All TSS -4000 components utilize MMD driver technology for superlative sound quality, and offer a host of installation options and system configuration choices. An optional flush -mount kit for the satellites and center channel loudspeaker enables them to be recessed into a wall for a clean, understated appearance; which makes the TSS -4000 system adaptable to an extremely broad range of architectural, designer and custom -installation applications.
The satellites are also supplied with shelf stands of three different heights, enabling the satellites to be placed level with virtually any rear -projection DLP television, or table -top flat -panel LCD or plasma TV, to create a unified, integrated appearance in home entertainment systems based around large -screen video displays. The center channel speaker includes a base for placement on top of or below a TV set or on a shelf. The magnetically shielded satellites and center channel are also supplied with swivel -bracket mounts.
For added flexibility, TSS -4000 components can also be matched with other Total Solutions loudspeakers; for example, a pair of compact TSS -SAT750 satellites can be used as the surround channels in a TSS -4000 system along with TSS -SAT4000 and TSS -CENTER4000 loudspeakers and a complementing subwoofer.
Suggested retail pricing for the Infinity Total Solutions TSS -4000 loudspeaker components is as follows: TSS -SAT4000, $549 each; TSS -CENTER4000, $549 each; TSS -SUB4000, $1,249 each. All models are currently available.
