San Clemente, CA—August 20, 2008—Sonance, the leading provider of high performance audio design solutions, will introduce a striking new loudspeaker to their Italian NACSound product line at the 2008 CEDIA Expo, Booth #408, in Denver, CO, in September. The Kayak single stereo loudspeaker joins the Omni and Zemi models, which were introduced in 2007, when Sonance partnered with NACSound to handle sales and distribution under the NACSound for Sonance label to dealers in the U.S. and Canada.
The NACSound for Sonance Kayak is a single-source stereo loudspeaker able to reproduce astonishingly natural stereo sound from a single component—a visually striking form that is a work of art created by NACSound’s brilliant Italian audio design team.
The Kayak, which can be suspended vertically or horizontally, utilizes elements of both omnidirectional and multidimensional sound reproduction to produce an unprecedented stereo effect in either orientation. The unique design features dual coaxial driver arrays housed in opposed cone enclosures that fire into a central computer-derived acoustic reflector meticulously formed to deliver astonishing stereo imaging from a single unit.
The Kayak accepts audio amplification of 60+60 watts (RMS) and is capable of delivering rich, convincing musical reproduction with ample dynamic impact.
All materials used to create the Kayak are handcrafted to fine-art standards, including precision-machined aluminum housings available in 14 different finishes using a specially developed ceramic-coating process (special-order options cover any remaining spectrum). Finishes include both solid gloss and matte offerings as well as more complex, fine-art effects individually created for each speaker.
Sonance, a leading manufacturer of loudspeakers and components for custom audio and AV systems and the inventor of the in-wall loudspeaker, sees this partnership with NACSound as an ideal complement to its existing efforts. Ari Supran, Chief Sales & Marketing Officer said, “NACSound designs provide Sonance with the ability to offer a complete audio design portfolio from flush-mounted in-wall loudspeakers to bold, designer focused models that appeal to interior design professionals and lifestyle-conscious customers who demand truly fine sound.”
NACSound for Sonance models are available in 14 different finishes. Because each speaker is handcrafted, delivery will take 60-90 days from date of order. Available on a special-order basis beginning at the manufacturer’s suggested $2,900.
