NHT To Unveil New Super Audio Lineup at CES

For Immediate Release


— Super Audio Models Feature New Cabinet Geometry, Driver Designs
For Improved Dispersion and Low Frequency Response —

LAS VEGAS, NV, CES ’05 Hilton Suite #2980 (east tower), January 4, 2005 — NHT will introduce a new selection of Super Audio models at this week’s International Consumer Electronics Show, January 6 – 9 in
Las Vegas, NV.

Similar to the previous Super Audio line, the new selection exemplifies NHT’s commitment to designing high end/high value speakers, with natural, transparent sonic reproduction that is the hallmark of the brand. Upgraded models are based on the company’s most revered models, but with considerably higher output and improved dispersion that is especially critical in multichannel audio applications.

“Super Audio has been the backbone of the NHT line since the beginning,” said Chris Byrne, Managing Director of Rockford Home Group, parent company of NHT. “In the time that has elapsed since we last upgraded the line, there have been important advances in technology as well as the continuing evolution of our design capabilities, allowing us to completely revamp the selection without abandoning our ‘high end without the high price’ philosophy.”

The new Super Audio selection, scheduled to ship in Q1 ’05, represents a nod to NHT’s roots while embracing new developments such as cabinet geometry that greatly reduces diffraction effects. Though final specifications and suggested retail prices will be announced on site, Byrne disclosed the line will include the following models.

 SZT and 2T two-way bookshelf speakers
 3T three-way bookshelf speaker
 2C two-way center channel speaker
 3C three-way center channel speaker
 4T three-way tower speaker

According to Byrne, the SZT and 2T are based on two of NHT’s most popular speakers, the SuperZero and SuperOne, respectively. These new versions feature similar sonic characteristics, but with greatly improved high frequency dispersion.

The SZT specifically is nearly 15% smaller than its predecessor, with absolutely no degradation in performance. Similarly, the 3T is a replacement for the acclaimed SB3 monitor, but it represents a completely new development effort, moving from a 2-way to a 3-way design. Employing a new ¾” metal dome tweeter and 2″ aluminum dome midrange plus 6.5″ woofer, the 3T offers similar response to the SB3 but with significantly improved dispersion. The 4T tower is loosely based on the revered 2.9 tower, though it employs the same driver compliment as the 3T, in addition to a 10″, side loaded aluminum cone subwoofer. The 4T is roughly 25% smaller than the original 2.9, with improved output and sonics.

“Consumers can use our new Super Audio two-way models to create a high performance 5.1 surround system for under $2,000,” added Byrne. “More powerful systems can be created using our three-way models for as little as $2,700, including a subwoofer.”

“New cabinet geometry that grew out of designs for the NHT Xd monitors significantly broadens the listening area, which is absolutely critical for multichannel audio, whether it’s music or a DVD soundtrack,” said Jack Hidley, NHT’s Director of Engineering. “The addition of new driver and cabinet designs make it possible to offer smoother on and off axis response that was not possible just a few short years ago.”
