From 31 March to 1 April Audes participated at a high profile audio exhibition in Montreal Canada. Audes demonstrated its flagship model within the Excellence Line – Excellence 5 – along with the Italy’s finest Mastersound tube gear. The sound was fantastic and captivating, and it was a real show-stopper! New products from the Custom Line – 326 and 306 – debuted at the show. A rare combination of a true audiophile two-channel sound in a lifestyle application generated an incredible amount of interest among audiophiles in Montreal.
Audes debuted a brand new concept in lifestyle loudspeaker systems – a true audiophile in-wall/on-wall loudspeaker. All drivers, crossover network components and the design philosophy was incorporated from the top selling Audes loudspeaker: Excellence 5.
The show attendees were absolutely taken by the ‘unanticipated’ sound coming from a lifestyle loudspeaker that was submerged into a wall with a beautiful high-gloss trim kit.
The new Audes 300 and 200 series custom installation products offer one of the most unique and diversified choices of installation. A single loudspeaker can be installed in many different ways, for example:
a complete in-wall installation – only a decorative cloth grill is visible;
a high-gloss trim in-wall installation – a case that is suitable for ultra-flat panel displays. A stylish ultra-low profile high-gloss trim is visible on the surface of a wall;
a high-gloss trim on-wall installation – beautifully crafted high-gloss frame can be attached to the surface of the speaker creating a very attractive low profile loudspeaker.
Versatility of installation, stylish look and refined sound puts Audes ahead of its competition.
