MIAMI, FLORIDA – December 27, 2007
Niles Audio Corporation, The First Name In Custom Installation®, announced today that Sound & Vision magazine, whose reviews are the most authoritative in the home entertainment industry, has selected the company’s StageFront Home Theater Solutions™ loudspeaker line as a “Sound & Vision Certified and Recommended product.” Designed specifically for home theater applications, the StageFront line includes both in-wall and cabinet models that are voice-matched to deliver exceptional sound quality in custom installed home theaters, regardless of loudspeaker type. The Sound & Vision Certified and Recommended status endorses StageFront loudspeakers and tells consumers that the product stands out in its class and that they can purchase it with confidence.
“StageFront Home Theater Solutions has been a true labor of love for Niles,” said Frank Sterns, president and chief loudspeaker designer of Niles Audio Corporation. “The line was created by custom installers for custom installers, with their home theater needs and design challenges in mind. We are very proud that this effort has been recognized by such a widely read and respected magazine,” Sterns added.
StageFront In-Wall Loudspeakers include four LCR models and two dedicated Surround Effects loudspeakers. All feature a ported enclosure tuned specifically for maximum sensitivity, dynamics and high-fidelity sound in an in-wall application and all fit within a standard 2" x 4" stud-wall depth. A steel bezel permanently affixed to the baffle board enables drivers to be placed as far forward as possible and provides for maximum use of the air volume within the wall. Each loudspeaker is equipped with epoxy-coated flat-steel grilles using a magnetic attachment method and a captured toggle bolt mounting system with metal dogs for easy retrofit installation. StageFront Pro Loudspeakers include four LCR models, two dedicated on-wall Surround Effects models and a high-performance box subwoofer. All feature sealed box construction for accurate extended low frequency response. Enclosures are constructed from 1" medium density fiberboard and are finished in matte black with sculpted metal grilles. Box dimensions are specifically designed to match rack-mount cabinet width when the loudspeakers are placed vertically or horizontally.
