(Editorial note: The AVguide news desk recently received word that Portland, OR-base Triad Speakers was releasing a new and surprisingly affordable full-range, on-wall L/C/R called on the OnWall MicroSat 3.0. We present the press release along with a product photo, below.).
Triad Speakers, Inc. Delivers 3-in-1 LCR for Flat-Screen TVs at $600 MSRP
An Unprecedented Value by a US-based Custom Loudspeaker Manufacturer
Portland, OR – June 28, 2010 – Triad Speakers, Inc. has begun shipping its new OnWall MicroSat 3.0 – a 3-in-1 full-range LCR available in custom sizes for flat-screen TVs 32- to 65- inches wide. The MicroSat 3.0 integrates three separately enclosed 2-way speaker configurations into one slim cabinet that attaches to the TV or mounts onto the wall below it. Triad’s extensive bracing and dampening techniques render the cabinet acoustically inert for the cleanest possible sound. MSRP is set at $600.
“With TV prices steadily trending downward, and their (TV) depths becoming shallower in general, the sound quality of the integrated TV speakers is becoming poorer,” says Triad director of sales and marketing Paul Scarpelli. “The MicroSat 3.0 represents a significant sonic upgrade from standard TV speakers, providing excellent fidelity when used by itself or with one of our OmniSubs and surround speakers.”
“Unlike virtually every competitive product in this category, each MicroSat 3.0 is built-to-order in Triad’s modern factory in Portland, Oregon,” furthers Scarpelli. “This provides consumers with the freshest, most current product made especially for them, and enables us to provide many desirable custom options. At a modest $600 MSRP, the MicroSat 3.0 is an unprecedented value for a custom loudspeaker manufactured in America.”
Standard finish of the MicroSat 3.0 is matte black cabinet and cloth grill. At no additional cost, the cabinet can be custom paint matched to any sample color provided by the dealer. While the MicroSat 3.0’s standard measurements are 32-inches wide x 4-inches high x 2.25-inches deep, custom sizing is available (at an up-charge) to match the width of the flat-screen TV, in ¼-inch increments, up to 65-inches wide.
