Wisdom Audio Targets Custom Channel w/Limited Distribution of Sage Architectural & In -Room Systems

"The Breadth of this Complete Series, Ranging from In-Wall to On-Wall to In-Room, while Sharing a Complement of Electronics and Set-Up/Install Guidelines, will be Quite Desirable to the Specialty Dealer and Installer"

CARSON CITY, Nev., Aug. 21, 2007 - Wisdom Audio (www.wisdomaudio.com), the leader in planar magnetic loudspeaker technologies with more than 85 years on -staff experience, announced it will target the specialty hybrid retailer and custom channel with limited distribution of its new Sage Series high end architectural and in -room audio systems. Wisdom Audio officials will be on hand during the 2007 CEDIA Expo, held in Denver from Sept. 6 -9 at the Colorado Convention Center, booth SR -12, to discuss the new product line and distribution details.


"The custom installation market has never seen such versatile, high end product as the Sage series," explained Jon Herron, Wisdom Audio vice president, sales. "We are targeting higher -end hybrid dealers and installers with a limited distribution strategy. Dealers and the CI market will finally have a genuinely high performance, in -wall audio solution to complement the wide range of high end video display devices now available. While the industry has seen significant growth in the scope and quality of high end integrated whole house systems, we feel that the audio portion of these solutions has not kept pace. The Sage Series targets the gap between the improved performance of high end video displays and complementary high end in -wall/on -wall audio solutions."

The Sage Series incorporates purpose -designed Wisdom Audio technologies that redefine form factor, high end performance, user experience benefits, realizable and consistent in -room acoustic results and installer/dealer installation/set -up benefits.

"Initially, we will bring to market five speaker configurations, ranging from 15 inches to 95 inches tall, each available as an in -wall, on -wall, or freestanding solution," added Mark Glazier, Wisdom Audio president. "Multiple center channels, a dual woofer vibration canceling in -wall sub enclosure, integrated Audyssey Laboratories™ room correction software, and dedicated electronics round out the new product offerings. The inclusion of all of these elements in each of our systems and the resulting performance achieved differentiates our offerings from all other known in -wall solutions."

Glazier added that the in -room product allows Wisdom to deliver to specialty dealers and integrators a high performance planar magnetic/hybrid series of products, designed in a narrow and shallow cabinet which has a small physical and visual footprint.

"The performance of the Sage Series appeals to the most discerning music and film lovers, while respecting the architectural and interior design integrity of the customer's home," Herron added. "This series ranges from small to large enclosures, all of which are available in freestanding, on -wall, or in -wall implementations. It meets a wide range of needs for the specialty dealer and installer. Moreover, the system's design (which includes room correction technology) provides for far more consistent, repeatable high performance results than anything else on the market.

"We are targeting dealers who desire to offer their best customers an appealing aesthetic design with performance that will please the most discriminating audiophile," Herron continued. "High performance, integrated speaker solutions are now possible. We are looking to establish relationships with those dealers and integrators who wish to differentiate their offerings while establishing a new standard of quality for their best customers. "
