Available Now: Leon Speakers’ New 1.5-Inch Deep Horizon Soundbar; The High-Fidelity Audio Choice for Ultra-Thin TVs

Extension to Popular Horizon Series is the First Soundbar Available to Match the Depth and Finish of Ultra-Thin LCD Displays, Down to 1.5 Inches

ANN ARBOR, Mich. — Aug. 27, 2009 — Leon Speakers, a manufacturer of custom-built, audiophile-grade loudspeakers for flat-panel displays and Living-Space Theater™, today announced that it has extended its Horizon Series with the addition of the new Horizon 212 Ultra-Thin Soundbar. At only 1.5 inches deep, the Horizon 212-UT is the only high-fidelity soundbar available that matches the extremely shallow depth of the increasingly popular ultra-thin LCD displays. This progressive multichannel speaker achieves high-fidelity sound without sacrificing the sleek look that makes these new displays so desirable.

At only 3.25 inches tall and custom-built to the exact width and finish of any slim TV, the Leon Horizon 212-UT is the audio solution of choice for systems integrators and interior designers alike. It combines left, center, and right channels in one ultra-thin cabinet, and has been engineered to mount directly to any TV on a fixed, tilt, or articulating mounting bracket.

Customers get the design benefit of the panel’s ultra-thin profile without giving up the sound quality that is demanded of these high-definition displays. For retrofit applications, the single unit Horizon 212-UT provides three of the five channels necessary to create an easy-to-install Leon 5.1 Living-Space Theater system. To complete the package, the Horizon 212-UT can be paired with Leon’s new AAROS in-wall subwoofer and timbre-matched AXIS in-ceiling surrounds.

“When it comes to the new LCD displays, thin is definitely in. The problem for systems engineers and designers has been the integration of high-fidelity audio to match the sleek displays without disrupting the overall room design,” said Noah Kaplan, president of Leon Speakers. “With our new Horizon 212 Ultra-Thin, we are filling this gap by offering a soundbar speaker that delivers unparalleled performance while matching the depth of ultra-thin LCD displays for a seamless, truly sophisticated look in any environment.”

The Horizon 212-UT utilizes the finest drivers available: each L/R channel features dual 2-inch, aluminum-dome Peerless HDS woofers for excellent sound dispersion and off-axis response (the center channel features four Peerless drivers). Classic Morel MDT-12 1-inch, hand-treated, cloth-dome tweeters provide superior sound in the upper frequency range. The Horizon 212-UT is available in L/C/R, L/R, or Center channel configurations for all ultra-thin displays, and easily mounts on the wall or to any fixed or articulating mount with Leon’s exclusive universal UnderMount bracket.

Custom-built in only three to five business days, the Horizon 212-UT Series is available now at a starting MSRP of $1,695 for the L/C/R combination, $1,495 for the L/R combination, and $1,295 for the Center-only configuration.

Debuting at CEDIA EXPO 2009, Booth 1037, attendees can also experience the entire Leon Speakers’ array of sophisticated, high-fidelity solutions for Living-Space Theater.
