Abt's New Bose Room

Friday, October 29th, 2010

Abt is pleased to announce the opening of the new Bose® room in our audio/video department. Like many of the trusted brands featured in our store, Abt has worked closely together with Bose for many years to create a tremendous shopping experience. This new Bose® area in our store does just that!

The new room features 20 Bose home theater and personal audio products on display, including the newest Lifestyle® home entertainment systems, the simpler 2.1 CineMate® home theater speaker systems, the SoundDock® family of products for iPods® and iPhones®, the Companion® line of computer speakers, and the brand new Bose IE2 and AE2 audio headphones.

Automated displays throughout the space allow Abt customers to explore independently, listen to music and movie demonstrations, and discover more about the product benefits – all with the simple push of a button. The room also allows for more personalized demonstrations with an Abt sales consultant in warm, home-like settings that combine the latest HDTVs, Bose systems, a variety of HD sources, and comfy leather seating.

A great product on display that I had the pleasure of trying out is Bose®’s new Lifestyle® V35 home entertainment system.  Continuing the tradition of Bose®’s popular Lifestyle® systems, the V35 connects up to 6 HD components and upscales any non-HD video to 1080p! I was very impressed with its Unify™ technology system that easily guides any user while installing the unit to existing components.  Even a novice would be able to set this up!

For more information, stop by Abt and take a tour of our newest remodel.  Don’t forget to also check our full line of Bose® products .

Crestron – Now At Abt

Tuesday, September 21st, 2010

Abt is excited to add the Crestron brand to our home audio line up.  We will have the entire array of products from both the Adagio and Prodigy lines.  I was able to attend one of the Crestron trainings presented by our Crestron rep, Dave Koller.  It was interesting to learn that Crestron has been around for 44 years, is independently owned (like Abt), and has had the same owner.  They employ over 500 full-time engineers to create and update their brand.  Having that many engineers also allows them to consistently roll out new products.  Currently there are over 3500 products in their catalog, and they are adding 200 to 500 new products annually. The Prodigy line is their consumer line where you can control your home starting at $1100.  The Adagio line is their step up line and caters to those looking for high performance and multi-room distribution.

For more information, contact one of our home theater specialists today at 888.228.5800 or leave a comment below.

The Perfect Match for Your HDTV

Monday, June 7th, 2010

There is a new speaker on the block, or should I say, on the wall; it’s lean, sleek, and will pair nicely with new super-skinny TVs. Definitive Technologies, has created the perfect Mythos speaker complement for shrinking HDTVs and LEDs.

Definitive’s latest Mythos, the XTR-50 ($699), is a trim 1.5 inches thick, 25 inches tall, and six inches wide. It’s designed to be mounted to a wall acting as a left, right, and center channel portion of a surround sound system, although It can also reside on a shelf or speaker stand, if wall mounting is not for you.

XTR-50 isn’t the first speaker of its kind, but it is the first with good sound. So, how much power does this speaker pack? It’s got two, three-and-a-half inch XTDD anodized Aluminum dome mid/bass drivers that are pressure coupled to four, three-and-a-half inch dome low-bass radiators along with one, one inch Aluminum dome tweeter—the same tweeter used in the Mythos ST Super Tower($1,999).

Ideally, you will want to add a sub, Definitive recommends ProSub300 ($399) and consider a duo of XTR-50s, one for each side of your TV. Even if they are the best-sounding skinny speakers on the market and does a great job with the higher frequencies, it still needs some assistance when it comes to hitting the lows.

Check out the XTR-50 on Abt.com or see it in the showroom today. For help with picking the perfect speaker solution for you, speak with an Abt, home theater sales specialist today.
