CARSON CITY, Nev., Sept. 17, 2008 — Now that the much anticipated award-winning Sage Series high-end architectural and freestanding speaker systems have begun to ship, Wisdom Audio (www.wisdomaudio.com), the leader in planar magnetic technologies, is proud to announce that it has partnered with Concord, Calif.-based D-Tools, Inc. This collaboration within the Manufacturers Vantage Point (MVP) program will now make it easy for users of D-Tools’ award-winning System Integrator software to specify Wisdom Audio’s Sage Series audio systems for client projects.
“D-Tools is widely recognized as a leader in connecting manufacturers with leading integrators,” said Mark Glazier, Wisdom Audio president. “Our launch of the Sage Series underscores Wisdom’s commitment to the specialty dealer and installer who cater to the specific needs of high-end customers. Being associated with D-Tool’s MVP program will allow us to more effectively target the Sage Series to such high-end integrators.”
While the industry has seen significant growth in the scope and quality of high-end integrated whole house systems, it is clear that the audio portion of these solutions has not kept pace. The Sage Series targets the gap between the improved performance of high-end video displays and complementary high-end in-wall/on-wall audio solutions.
According to D-Tools, the company’s MVP program is designed to help provide system integrators with the most up-to-date product information to over 2,500 companies using D-Tools System Integrator software. D-Tools MVP members are dedicated to helping companies streamline the design process and making it easier for system integrators and installers to provide accurate proposals to their clients.
“The industry has long awaited a high-end audio system such as Wisdom Audio’s new Sage Series, and we’re pleased to incorporate them into our MVP Program,” said Adam Stone, D-Tools president. “After seeing how Sage was received at the recent CEDIA Expo by dealers, integrators, and the media alike, including winning multiple awards during the show, we believe this series will be wholeheartedly welcomed by the integrators who utilize our MVP Program.”
Wisdom Audio has brought to market more than 20 Sage Series models, encompassing in-wall, on-wall and freestanding versions of most configurations ranging from 20 inches to 76 inches tall. Multiple center channels, the in-wall subwoofer, integrated Audyssey Laboratories™ room correction software, and dedicated electronics round out the new product offerings. Sage Series speakers incorporate new generation proprietary thin film planar magnetic drivers which allow for its narrow and shallow physical characteristics, thus permitting the unprecedented possibility of the same driver complement and back box to be used for such varied applications, ranging from in-wall to freestanding.
