Tetra Speakers at Alexis Park Room 1714

CES 2005 Update Alexis Park Room 1714

After 10 years of steady growth, Tetra burst into the US market at Primedia’s Home Entertainment 2004 East in New York. It was an exhilarating experience; click here for the lowdown on the high points with exclusive photos.

At this year’s CES, Tetra showcases the updated 120U, the hottest selling little speaker in our lineup. It’s got a new finish–blonde cherry–a new grill that doesn’t cover the top-mounted port–works great for near-wall placement–and a better fit and finish with softer, rounder corners. They’re nicely sensitive at 89dB at a true 8 ohms–7 ohms minimum–so they’re good to go with solid-state or tubed electronics. Their relatively small size belies their ability to fill a room with sound. Wall-mountable, drop them on a shelf, or for keen-eared audiophiles, place them on stands; any way you play them, our customers love their engaging sound, with more clean bass than you’d have imagined possible. Combine the 120Us with a pair of 305s and a 505C center-channel and you’ve got a low-cost high-performance surround system.

Tetra’s other long-term winner, the Live 405, will also seduce visitors in our room. The 405 is our least expensive Live Collection speaker, and features Tetra’s tetrahedron-shaped top enclosure/baffle. After much experimentation, the tetrahedron shape proved the best for ultimate sound, hands down. “And no wonder,” enthuses Tetra’s president, Adrian Butts, “the tetrahedron enclosure eliminates internal standing waves, allowing the speaker to project its soundstage well out into the room.”

Audiophile goodies abound: a 6″ Morel NeoLin Neodymium Damped Polymer Composite woofer, 1″ Morel treated fabric tweeter, simple elegant 2nd order crossovers, Chateauroux Polypropylene Solen Fast Caps and Hepta-Litz Air-Cored inductors. The crossover is hard-wired point-to-point, there’s Cardas internal wiring, and Cardas gold-plated rhodium binding posts.

Come visit us at the Alexis Park, room 1714, and hear for yourself what everyone’s talking about.

Tetra speakers are musical magic, the perfect antidote for bleeding-eared audiophiles that have so much false detail and etch thrust in their face that music becomes no longer an engaging, meaningful, perhaps even spiritual experience. Tetra Speakers are wonderfully adept at creating an involving, dynamic, colorful and rich soundfield for You Are There audio and home theater systems. “Go where you want to go with Tetra!” quips Adrian.

Tetra Speakers… Just Like Being There!
