Triad Speakers, Inc. and Anthony Grimani’s Performance Media Industries, LTD Partner to Add Three New Home Theater Solutions Atop the Triad Lineup of Products
Custom loudspeaker solution manufacturer, Triad Speakers, Inc., announced today that they have partnered with Anthony Grimani’s Performance Media Industries, LTD (PMI) to deliver three high-performance audio solutions for home theater.
Available January 2008, each of the three solutions will be comprised of the same core design and engineering service from PMI, Triad’s top-of-the-line loudspeakers and a full ensemble of acoustic treatments. The three turnkey systems represent the very best that Triad has to offer.
“Triad and PMI have a long history of working together to deliver some of the world’s best sounding home theaters. The next logical step was for us to standardize several turnkey solutions for the dealer,” says Triad’s director of sales and marketing Paul Scarpelli.
Drawing from many years of practical experience with Triad products, PMI focused on the company’s InRoom Gold Monitors and Platinum LCRs to optimally serve rooms defined as small, medium and large, based on cubic volume.
Integration of each of the three systems begins with the development of a room-specific, engineered plan set by PMI. The 36-page plan set will guide the entire project team in placing the listeners and all loudspeaker components, as well as the specified acoustic treatment system.
“The acoustic character of any room damages the performance of even the finest loudspeaker systems,” added Grimani, “By implementing the PMI plan set, the Triad dealer will be able to provide its customer with incredibly high performance and fully utilize the performance of the Triad speaker products.”
MSRP for the three systems begins at $40,750 (small room), $60,650 (medium room) and $74,250 (large room). All three systems will be available beginning January 1, 2008.
