ANN ARBOR, Mich. ? Aug. 7, 2008 ? Leon Speakers, a manufacturer of custom-built, on-wall loudspeakers for flat-panel displays, today announced the release of the latest addition to the popular Leon Profile™ Series: the ultra-high-fidelity Profile 404-X-A. Beautifully styled and expertly crafted, the Profile 404-X-A delivers high fidelity and high design to any environment. With a depth of only 3¼ inches, it perfectly complements new, thinner flat-panel TVs, and can be custom-built to match the exact height and finish of any display. Furthermore, the Profile 404-X-A is available in a number of wood-veneered baffles and can be painted to match any interior color.
The Profile 404-X-A is perfectly suited for small theater settings and two-channel audiophile listening rooms. It utilizes some of the finest drivers and tweeters in the world: each channel features dual four-inch Peerless HDS woofers and a Morel MDT29 one-inch hand-treated, cloth-dome tweeter housed in a vented enclosure. The speaker boasts a 65kHz to 22kHz frequency response and a power rating of 235 W per channel.
“For the past 10 years, we have designed industry-niche products to perfectly match flat panel displays,” said Noah Kaplan, president of Leon Speakers. “The Leon ethos has always been to give custom installers the versatility to design systems that fit individual needs. The Profile 404-X-A gives the option of not only matching any TV, but also wood floors or any wall paint color. It not only looks great next to the display, but it stands on its own as an incredible two-channel solution that customers will want to show off.”
For consumers who are looking for matching surround sound on-wall speakers, Leon offers the Profile 114-X-A Surround Sound Series. Timbre-matched for superb stereo imaging, the Profile 114-X-A surrounds are just 3¼ inches deep and can be easily mounted on a wall using Leon’s exclusive Flex-Mount™ articulating mounting bracket. For in-wall applications, the 114i-X-A is also available to hide the surround speakers out of sight.
Custom built in only three to five business days, the Profile 404-X-A is available now at an MSRP of $2,495 per pair for standard models that ship in a high-gloss black or white baffle. Custom finishes are available at an MSRP of $2,995 per pair, matching baffles to wood floors or trims (bamboo, cherry, birch, walnut, maple and other exotic hardwoods), and cabinets to wall colors (Sherwin Williams™, Benjamin Moore™ Ralph Lauren™, Valspar™, Pantone™, Behr™, etc.). Leon’s Profile 114-X-A surround sound on-wall speakers and in-wall 114i-X-A retail at $1,395 and $1,495 per pair respectively.
The Leon Profile 404-X-A will be unveiled at CEDIA EXPO 2008 at Leon Speakers’ booth 352.
