MODVO expands their second-generation products

For nearly 2 years, our 2nd generation products have been in work for some time now.  The very first 2nd generation speaker was Introduce as the EX-90 (from the Executive Line).  This product was in beta testing with a release date in February of 2010, but due to unavailable parts, this product had to be put on the shelf.  In response to this misfortune, we decided to continue the push of our 1st generation products (Reference MM-100 and CM-100 Modules).  The Reference Mini Monitor 100 (reference MM-100) speaker (nearly 3 years old) still holds its own and offers exceptional quality and performance for the price.  At just $250 a pair, these speakers offers  hand built cabinets and crossovers with high quality components that use point-to-point soldering (no PC boards), usually found in speakers costing almost twice their price.

KEF T Series Flat Panel Speakers Named CEA Mark of Excellence Award Finalist

Wednesday, March 2nd, 2011

KEF, the renowned manufacturer of innovative, reference-quality loudspeakers, has announced the new T Series Flat Panel Loudspeaker line has been named a finalist for “Speaker of the Year” by the 2011 CEA TechHome Mark of Excellence Award committee.

 

As one of the thinnest high performance home theater and flat panel audio systems, the KEF T Series complements today’s stylish flat panel televisions and offers serious audiophile quality sound from exceptionally thin speakers.

 

The CEA Mark of Excellence Awards program recognizes the best in home electronics products, services and installed technology. Winners of this year’s award will be announced at the CEA Mark of Excellence Dinner Reception held Friday, March 18 at EHX 2011 in Orlando, Fla.

 

“We are proud to have the CEA Mark of Excellence Awards program recognize the truly unique design of the T Series,” said Alec Chanin, president of KEF America. “The T Series was designed to deliver superior sound in the form of a low-profile, ultra-thin flat panel speaker. By combining KEF’s legendary sound with this innovative design, we’ve developed the perfect flat panel loudspeaker for virtually any setting.”

 

The new T Series combines two landmark KEF innovations: a radical new ultra-low profile bass and midrange driver, and a large, fully vented new tweeter. Both the drivers and tweeter are incorporated into cabinets only 35mm deep, delivering true high-fidelity sound in a thin speaker that perfectly complements the aesthetics of the latest flat screen TVs. Sweet and pure midrange performance is assured by a new large diaphragm tweeter developed directly from the Concept Blade loudspeaker project.

 

The T Series also features KEF’s innovative Selecta-mount system which uses a clever internal connecting system to automatically adjust the crossover depending on how the loudspeaker is mounted, giving users the freedom to place the loudspeakers wherever they want and still enjoy great sound.

 

Judged by independent systems integrators, manufacturers, consultants and members of the media, the CEA panel recognizes the industry’s most outstanding products across 31 product categories, including home theater speakers.

 

Attendees to EHX 2011 can demo the T Series at the KEF Booth 1101A.
