The difference comes in the woofer size, the LS67 has a 6-inch woofer and the LS47 has a 3.5-inch woofer. Both speakers will work with a variety of mount options for in ground and tree mounting.

2010 CEDIA Expo

The 2010 Custom Electronic Design and Installation Association (CEDIA) Expo was held about a week ago, but the buzz is still in the air.  The CEDIA holds an expo once a year to showcase various companies that are involved in the electronic systems industry and market.  A highlight at this year’s expo was the introduction of the Future Technology Pavilion.  The pavilion showcased cutting-edge technologies and demonstrated how they are designed to provide the ultimate high-tech experience for homeowners. For the first time ever, attendees were able to experience 3D audio, 3D video, and motion all in one setting.

One of Abt’s audio buyers, Jim Kozicki, was at the event. He spoke about what he was excited to see, “All speaker manufacturers are really trying to push ‘thin’ construction.  Thin is in when it comes to design”,  he stated.  “Speaker manufacturers are trying to compliment the increasing popularity of thin TVs.”

In addition to that, the manufacturer Denon was celebrating its 100th anniversary.  Abt is very proud to be one of the five chosen online retailers allowed to sell their special-edition Anniversary Product Collection.  The collection is comprised of seven components, and each is expertly crafted and hand-tested.  They are accompanied by a certificate of authenticity and a special edition coffee table book.  The entire line of anniversary products can be found here.

One real interesting product I heard about when talking with Jim, was a new product from the manufacturer Sonance.  Sonance is releasing a new in-wall docking station for the iPad. Called, the iPort, it will allow you to control the volume, entertainment options, lighting and climate of your home like a built-in touch pad or with an optional wireless remote. Beyond that, you can download a variety of applications that keeps you up-to-date on news, weather, stocks and sports.

Check out iPort’s  home page for full details and images.
