Atlantic Introduces Snowsound® Acoustic Panels
LAS VEGAS --(Business Wire)--
Consumer Electronics Show (Booth 20636) - Today, 74% of American
households have flat panel TVs and multiple speakers. According to the U.S.
Consumer Sales and Forecast 2009-2014 report (recently released by
CEA), there is optimism about home audio segment sales. This report
finds many consumers are ready to upgrade their current AV systems to
"foster a more immersive entertainment experience." Atlantic's new
award-winning acoustic solutions may be a better upgrade than new AV
The MP3 generation grew up listening to music through earbuds, many of
which have poor frequency response. It is no wonder, then, that many of
these consumers have low expectations for home entertainment sound
quality. Leo Dardashti, Atlantic's President and CEO, explained, "Those
of us who grew up with large headphones, high-quality speakers and LPs
played on turntables outfitted with diamond needles know how good sound
can really be. We are pleased to introduce the Snowsound family
of acoustic panels to improve the American home entertainment
These sound absorbing panels attenuate high, mid-range and low
frequencies and are carefully designed to improve room acoustics.
Patented Snowsound technology aoustic panels are constructed
with high quality, 100% recyclable, variable density polyester. Lab
testing has verified significant sound absorption across 0 to 4 kHz.
Although effective acoustic solutions have been available for some time,
they are found primarily in high-end, dedicated home theaters. Most
consumers have neither the space for a dedicated area nor the budget to
consider such solutions. Low-end acoustic panels exist today as well,
but most are ineffective.
Surfaces of Snowsound technology acoustic panels are covered with
durable, high-quality, fire retardant Trevira CS® polyester firmly
bonded to the inner wadding, forming a single body without breaks. These
panels are thin, light weight, decorative and fire tested. Available in
three configurations, free standing Corista (62 in. x 17 in.),
free standing or wall-mounted Mitesco (62 in. x 17 in.) and
tilting, rotating, swiveling, wall-mounted Flap (26 in. x 18
in.). With the ability to rotate, multiple Flap panels can be
arranged to form artistic patterns. Consumers will appreciate the
aesthetics, design and color choices.
Corista is offered in black, while Mitesco and Flap
are available in a variety of colors. Available April, 2014, the
suggested retails range from $180.00 to $300.00.
