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.

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.

Role Audio introduces environmentally friendly “green” options for all its
RESEARCH TRIANGLE PARK, NORTH CAROLINA — Role Audio is offering environmentally and health friendly ,
formaldehyde free loudspeakers as options for its full line of eight critically acclaimed small loudspeakers. Over the long term, Role Audio will replace all standard loudspeakers with formaldehyde free eco-friendly loudspeakers.
Formaldehyde, which is used to manufacture most plywoods and medium density fiberboards (MDFs), is an allergen and a carcinogen. It is a volatile organic compound (VOC) which vaporizes under normal conditions into the environment. Formaldehyde residues are major components of smog and thus have a broad impact on health.
Because of its ubiquity, volatility, and toxicity, formaldehyde is a serious threat to human and environmental health. In finished lumber products – such as loudspeakers — formaldehyde, paints, and glues which are VOCs can release vapors (off-gas) into indoor air. This is a significant and growing concern for consumers who want healthy products in their homes and in their working and leisure environments.
Our “green” loudspeakers are manufactured from formaldehyde free plywoods, and from MDFs that use no urea or formaldehyde in the manufacturing process. They are assembled with non toxic glues, and finished water borne coatings that are certified by the Greenguard Environmental institute. The grills are manufactured from formaldehyde free MDF, non-toxic glues, and nylon fabrics.
Role Audio has always been green. The driving principle for Role Audio has always been to use the least amount of drivers, crossover parts, and materials coupled with the latest loudspeaker design technology to deliver big speaker performance from the smallest possible cabinet designs. We have always used non-toxic glues, non-toxic stains, and packaging made from recycled materials in our products. Small speakers require less energy, paints, finishes, and lumber to manufacture. They also require less energy and packaging materials to ship. Our dedication to manufacturing small, low-toxicity loudspeakers has established Role Audio as one of the greenest loudspeaker companies.
All things being equal, our standard small loudspeakers present significantly less risk of off-gas and a significantly smaller carbon foot print than larger loudspeakers. Nevertheless, with the increasing use of loudspeakers in nearfield and more intimate situations, and the broader problem of global environmental pollution, off-gassing has become a very important health and environmental issue. It is this issue that we seek to address in transitioning to manufacturing only formaldehyde free loudspeakers.
While the revolution in the miniaturization of high end electronics is proceeding at a rapid pace, progress in the
miniaturization of high end loudspeakers which will reduce the impact of loudspeaker manufacturing on the global environment lags behind. Role Audio has been at the forefront of the trend to deliver the best performance in the smallest possible loudspeaker designs. We believe our small potent loudspeakers when used by themselves or in combination with small subwoofers are compelling alternatives to many large loudspeakers. The transition to producing exclusively green loudspeakers is a formidable challenge, but once again we are at the forefront of a very important and vital change.
