Significant Upgrade to Boston’s Acclaimed SoundWare XS 5.1 System; Compact SoundWare
S Offers Even Greater Acoustic Performance, in Stunning High Gloss Finish --
Peabody, MA, November 2, 2011 — Boston Acoustics, Inc., a world-renowned manufacturer of innovative home entertainment solutions and high performance loudspeakers, is expanding its award-winning SoundWare loudspeaker family with the debut of its new high-performance sixspeaker SoundWare S Home Theater Speaker System (MSRP: $799.99). A step-up version of the company’s award-winning SoundWare XS 5.1 system, SoundWare S offers home theater lovers even greater acoustic performance, with more immersive surround sound, more detailed dynamics and higher output. The high gloss black version of the system will be available in October 2011.
The SoundWare S system is comprised of five ultra-compact SoundWare S satellites, each measuring less than 4 inches, plus a compact 10” 200-watt (300-watt Peak) powered subwoofer. It’s the ideal solution for consumers who want to do away with bulky “box type” speakers and enjoy rich, room-filling sound in a stylish, compact system.
Kevin Zarow, Vice President of Sales for Boston Acoustics, noted: “Our SoundWare line has been embraced because of its distinct design and flexibility. Now consumers looking for a compact, high performing home theater speaker system have another option with our SoundWare S. The slightly larger sized SoundWare S speakers create an even greater acoustic experience than that of our award-winning SoundWare XS 5.1 system."
For users who want an even more detailed and immersive audio soundscape, Boston Acoustics is making optional SoundWare S Special Edition satellite speakers available, allowing users to create 6.1 or 7.1 channel surround sound systems. The compact satellites provide the dramatic audio power and performance of true two-way speakers, with 3½-inch (65mm) mid-bass drivers and ¾-inch dome tweeters. The result is astoundingly accurate and pure sounding music.
