TRIAD SPEAKERS, INC. UNVEILS NEW SPEAKER FOR DOLBY ATMOS SOUND
Bronze LR-H model to deliver award-winning Dolby Atmos multi-dimensional sound
Portland, OR - August 27, 2014 - Custom made-in-the-USA manufacturer Triad Speakers, Inc. today announced a new home theater speaker developed to deliver captivating, multi-dimensional sound with Dolby Atmos.
Triad’s Bronze LR-H is an in-room loudspeaker that utilizes a traditional D’Appolito design (2 front-firing 5.5-inch drivers with a 1-inch tweeter located in between). Integrated into the enclosure is a Dolby Atmos enabled module that consists of an up-firing top driver array containing four 2-inch drivers that aim sound towards the ceiling. In the Dolby Atmos system, the Bronze LR-H is used for left and right front and left and right rear surrounds (one enclosure per module).
With Dolby Atmos®, sound comes alive from all directions, including overhead, to fill the home theater with astonishing clarity, power, detail, and depth.
“At Triad, we are very proud of our role in helping Dolby develop the standards for Dolby Atmos enabled loudspeakers,” says Triad Speakers, Inc. President and CEDIA Chairman Larry Pexton. “Dolby used Triad design and development services to prototype the upward firing Dolby Atmos enabled speakers and supplied our prototypes to its industry partners who used them to evaluate electronic components licensed under the Dolby Atmos program.”
Demonstration at CEDIA Expo 2014 (September 11-13)
Triad will display the Bronze LR-H at its CEDIA Expo 2014 booth (#448). The Dolby booth (#180) will include two live presentations of Triad speakers, one using four InRoom Bronze LR-H (built-in Dolby Atmos enabled upward firing speakers), and another using four Triad InCeiling Bronze/8 LCRs for the overhead sound.
“Triad has been developing and experimenting with a wide range of solutions including in-room, in-wall, on-wall and in-ceiling designs,” says Pexton. “Somewhat to our surprise, in testing our speakers we have found that the built-in height channel -- which reflects off the ceiling -- performs better in some applications than using dedicated ceiling speakers for the height channel.”
“At the CEDIA Expo, listeners will be able to form their own judgment of which system they prefer. Either way I am very confident they will leave very impressed with capabilities and added sonic dimensions of the Dolby Atmos systems presented,” furthered Pexton.
