THIEL Loudspeakers and Subwoofers Featured in AIX Records' HD Audio/Video Demo at AXPONA 2010

February 25th, 2010 (Lexington, KY) - U.S. loudspeaker company THIEL Audio (, has announced that their flagship CS3.7 speakers and SS2 subwoofers will be the featured loudspeakers for AIX Records' ultra high -performance HD audio/video presentation during AXPONA's inaugural Audio Expo event March 5 -7, 2010, in Jacksonville, Florida. THIEL Loudspeakers, Oppo, Boulder Amplifiers, DH Labs, Wolf Cinema, and Stewart Filmscreen have all contributed components to help showcase AIX's awarding -winning tracks in a state -of -the -art entertainment system.

AXPONA is a new organization whose mission is to further the faithful reproduction of music. The AXPONA event is being held at the Wyndham Riverwalk Hotel in downtown Jacksonville, and the HD surround sound demo featuring THIEL speakers will be in the hotel's Port Ballroom. "I've always been very impressed by the engineering, accuracy of sound and craftsmanship of THIEL products and am thrilled that they are part of system that AIX Records has assembled at the AXPONA event," said Mark Waldrep, Ph.D. AIX Records.

The THIEL CS3.7 is a floor -standing 3 -way speaker using drivers and other innovations developed by legendary loudspeaker designer, Jim Thiel. Most notably, the CS3.7 features a coaxially mounted midrange/tweeter array that employs a 5 -inch ribbed midrange diaphragm that eliminates audible resonances while simultaneously reducing diffraction and reflection of energy from the very high output 1 -inch tweeter. The CS3.7 is designed and hand -built at THIEL's factory in Lexington, Kentucky.

The SS2 subwoofer uses THIEL's heralded SmartSub® technology that compensates for room placement limitations, delivering the most natural response possible. The two long -throw 10"drivers are powered by an internal 1000 watt high efficiency switching mode amplifier with thermal overload protection.

"THIEL is excited for the opportunity to showcase our products at an event that is dedicated to great music and the finest recordings and playback systems available," reported Ken Dawkins, Vice President of North American sales for THIEL. "Both AXPONA and AIX Records have dedicated tremendous resources to help spread the word about high performance audio -THIEL is very pleased to support such an initiative," said Dawkins.
