JACKSONVILLE, FL — February 17, 2005 — A comprehensive presence is what Phase Technology, a leader in speaker design and audio engineering, plans for this spring’s Electronic House Expo in Orlando, Florida (February 24–26.) In addition to displaying its breakthrough Digital Reference Theater Speaker System, Phase Technology will also showcase its new PT A-Bus Multi-Room Audio Distribution System. Also on display will be the new and elegant on-wall speaker line, as well as the rest of Phase Tech’s highly rated home theater, custom in-wall/in-ceiling, and outdoor speaker lines. Booth # 1036 inside the Orange County Convention Center will indeed be an interesting stop for all EHX visitors.
“Since its introduction last fall, our Digital Reference Theater system has been raising the bar for audio realism,” notes Ken Hecht, president of Phase Technology. “By using fully digital amplifiers, crossovers, and processing, our digital theater system can be specifically calibrated to produce the ideal balance and most accurate frequency response possible for the very room in which the system is installed. At EHX, our visitors will be able to learn more about the system as well as our new plasma speakers, and the recently introduced PT-ABUS Multi-Room Audio Distribution System.”
Phase Technology plans to showcase the Custom Box version of the all-digital home theater system. Planned for release in Q2 of 2005, this system version has been specifically designed for applications where big sound is the star and speakers unobtrusively hide in cabinets or behind projector screens.
The new Phase Tech on-wall speaker line is scheduled to ship in Q2 of 2005 and has been designed to seamlessly complement flatscreen video displays. Phase Tech’s on-walls feature a slim, crescent-shaped design that makes a spectacular accent when installed around wall-mounted flat panel displays. The speakers each feature dual 5-1/4″ woofers as well as the company’s own 1″ soft dome tweeter. Available in black or metallic silver finishes, these on-wall speakers let installers create a seamless look for the entire entertainment system no matter which model flat panel display is used.
The PT A-BUS is a brand new audio package which integrates Phase Technology’s Custom Installation and Contractor Series in-wall speakers with ABUS’s renowned Multi-Room Audio Distribution System. PT A-BUS enables owners to enjoy quality sound from virtually any of their audio sources in all rooms throughout their homes. Phase Technology has created seven PT A-BUS packages using five new electronic components and elegant in-wall speakers to give dealers everything that’s needed to tailor a distributed audio system that matches any home’s requirements. The PT A-BUS System distinguishes itself from traditional audio distribution systems by placing local amplifiers in each room or zone, instead of using a central multi-channel amp. This avoids the signal dissipation that can result from long speaker wire runs. PT A-BUS uses a single cat-5 wire to run source audio from the HUB-1 to the rooms’ power modules (integrated with volume controls).
Phase Technology’s in-wall speakers seamlessly integrate with any interior and perfectly complement A-BUS technology in delivering high-fidelity sound that doesn’t intrude on decor. The Custom Installation and Contractor series speakers can be painted or wallpapered for a nearly invisible presence that puts all attention on the music. Each family produces dynamic and detailed sound and can even be used outdoors for outstanding performance on the front porch, back patio, or under eaves.
