BASSMAXX Shakes the Treehouse in South Beach

BASSMAXX - Treehouse club install - Miami

Treehouse, Miami’s Premier Award-Winning Techno Venue, Now Relies on 10 BASSMAXX Powered Enclosures for Supreme Bass-Crunching Low-End and No Hassle Results

Miami, June 28, 2012 — BASSMAXX (www.bassmaxx.com) has found a home in Treehouse…the immensely popular South Beach techno venue where low end and a high intensity crowd are married in a euphoria of music and dance. BASSMAXX provided and installed six self-powered double 18-inch subwoofers and four self-powered double 12-inch bass horn cabinets, complete with on-site system tuning and optimization, into the subsequently crowned Miami NewTimes “Best Small Music Venue – 2012”.

“These days, DJs’ demands on equipment are consistently surpassing the status quo of just a few years ago…low-end demands are the greatest, and often the weakest point in a sound system,” said Gregory Selph, Treehouse operating partner and a 23-year veteran of the nightclub industry. “Customers [had been] emailing and blogging about our amazing DJ lineups and constantly failing sound systems. We chose BASSMAXX after blowing up every other viable option on the market. Our sound tech labor invoices, let alone the parts, were sucking us dry. BASSMAXX is directly the opposite. BASSMAXX makes low end effortless…waterproof, drink-proof, DJ-proof, self powered, self cooling, self monitoring, self limiting, and just bass crushing. Wheel it in, plug it in, ready to begin.”

Treehouse now utilizes BASSMAXX on two dance floors:
• Main Room: A Sub-Mergence system consisting of 4 x SS218-A self-powered double 18-inch subwoofers, and 2 x X2C-A self-powered bass horns.
• Room Two: A Sub-Mergence system consisting of 2 x SS218-A self-powered double 18-inch subwoofers, and 2 x X2C-A self-powered bass horns.

Open for approximately a year-and-a-half and gaining the reputation as Miami’s premier techno venue, Treehouse combines 7,000-square-feet of indoor and outdoor entertainment space. Treehouse is known as THE underground DJ venue, specializing in European techno bookings weekly. The customer demographic is a self-described downtown/midtown/design-district/hipster/artist crowd, which is a far cry from the normal South Beach tourist or commercial throng. Treehouse is a locals’ hot spot with a constant influx of educated European tourists, and prides itself as being incredibly inviting to all, with a “be yourself door policy”, and no velvet rope pretentiousness. It’s all about the music and BASSMAXX is now a large part of that experience.

“David brought a couple of pieces of his Ultra Music Festival sound system in for an impromptu demo after load-out from the festival,” Selph explained. “His demo was impressive to say the least. Everything attached to the walls [was] shaking and falling down [and] his equipment wasn’t even working hard…and it had just taken beating after beating at Ultra in the Miami heat and salty humidity. Our team kept talking about the demo for two months as we weighed and tested all other sound companies’ proposals. Each proposal led us back to BASSMAXX’s effortless demo that had impressed us so.”

Added David Lee, president of BASSMAXX, “We stopped by Treehouse on our way out of town, rolled in four of the SS218s, plugged them in to extension cords and split the signal off the mixer with a Y adapter. The effect on the walls and décor was pretty interesting, so say the least. I could tell they had never had bass like that in the room before and I think it worried them at first. I assured them that we could fairly well contain the bass indoors by using placement and delays to target the nulls at the doorways but they would probably have to glue and screw down everything on the walls. We also discussed the Sub-Mergence technology that adds massive dynamic impact to the deep bass of the SS218s, which is the direction they decided to take.”

Selph explained that besides the impressive demo, one of the deciding factors in choosing BASSMAXX for Treehouse was BASSMAXX president David Lee’s accessibility and approachability. He said that he’s had clubs with the most well known names in sound but never once knew the people behind the product personally, let alone been able to have conversations relating to his venues’ sound.

“With David, [it was the] complete opposite,” continued Selph. “He’s available and interested and genuinely concerned and wants as much as we do for his product to be the best it can be and leave a lasting positive impression. His install was well beyond what we anticipated. He spent three days in the sweltering heat here in Miami with no AC, solving problems we never knew we had and leaving us with a no stress, virtually self-maintained product. My nights used to be a series of flip outs and stress overloads running around the club fixing sound issues…checking levels, making sure connections or drivers or amps had not broken or overheated. Now I can focus on the business and sales and customers. The system he left us with no longer requires my attention, at all. I turn it on at open and turn it off at close, and listen to all of the praise in between. Never have we had this situation here. It’s been put to the test by a number of big DJs lately and continues to just crush. I smile now every time I walk through the room.”

“In my next life, I’d like sole rights to be the exclusive BASSMAXX rep for the southeast,” Selph concluded. “This company and this product are bad ass and [BASSMAXX] has huge potential for growth. Miami continues to grow as an electronic music leader and when other venues find out about this product it will make my club competition just that much more relentless.”

Lee continued, “Working with Greg and the folks at Treehouse has been a real pleasure because they truly appreciate the sound quality and recognize the value of what we do to make their lives easier and help ensure their club brings audiences back again and again. Treehouse books great talent and the job of the sound system is to make sure everyone, including the owner, the promoter, the headliner, and all their fans, thoroughly enjoys the musical experience and wants to come right back for more.”

MOZAEX SHIPS $2,995 CHROMA MULTI-ROOM ENTERTAINMENT SERVER; NEW “iBLU” FEATURE IS FIRST TO COMBINE iTUNES WITH BLU-RAY

Mozaex Chroma Server or Player BD - Top Angled Disc

THE MOZAEX "CHROMA" IS WORLD’S FIRST SERVER TO SUPPORT BLU-RAY, iTUNES STORE AND ULTRAVIOLET VUDU MOVIE SERVICE; LEGALLY PLAYS BLU-RAYS AND DVDS WITHOUT AN EXPENSIVE, COMPLICATED DISC-CHANGER

Salt Lake City – June 25, 2012 – Mozaex™, the premiere manufacturer of multi-room, multi-media Blu-ray entertainment servers, announced today it has begun shipping Chroma, a new series of multi-room Entertainment Servers that combines iTunes with Blu-ray, NetFlix, and UV movies.

Chroma’s “iBlu” combines the popularity and ease of iTunes with the quality of Blu-ray

“Mozaex has once again set a new value proposition in home entertainment by introducing the first Entertainment Server that combines the features of a Blu-ray Server and an Apple TV into a single appliance for under $3,000,” said Mozaex CEO Douglas Kihm. “By combining the quality of Blu-ray® with the popularity and ease of Apple TV®, iTunes®, NetFlix®, and Ultraviolet® (UV), Chroma offers our dealers a unique opportunity to expand sales while dramatically improving their clients’ entertainment value and experience. At these extraordinary prices, everyone can now afford luxury entertainment.”

Kihm added that no other multi-room entertainment server offers this incredible price-to-performance value. “The nearest competition cost thousands of dollars more, requires an unreliable, complicated mechanical disc-changer, and doesn’t support iTunes, UV, photos, home videos or online media. It is a perfect replacement for the discontinued Sony Blu-ray disc changer used in thousands of single room projects and perfect for multiple room projects with budgets under five thousand dollars”.

Chroma includes “iBLU”, which supports both the iTunes movies/music store and Blu-ray movies. Chroma also includes a feature called iPlay™, which allows the user to play their iTunes library of movies and music using Apple’s elegantly designed, free iPad/iPhone “Remote” App. Chroma works with the Apple AirPort Express unit so Chroma’s music can be extended to another room wirelessly.

“iTunes, Apple TV and iPad/iPhone iDevices have revolutionized multi-room music and touch panel control, yet the dealer channel has not yet been able to fully capitalize on this profitable revolution until now,” Kihm continued. “With a price of a music-only server, Mozaex dealers can now offer a full featured multi-room iTunes Music Server plus a full featured Blu-ray and iTunes movie server with iDevice control.”

You can both buy and browse media via its HD TV interface and, unlike Apple TV, Chroma doesn’t require a TV to play music when using the Apple Remote App. You can also add unlimited Chroma Sonnets music players for multi-room iTunes music and other online media throughout the home.
Chroma Sonnet affordably adds wireless music playback to any room in the house

Sonnet is a wireless music-only player, for use when only music and streaming media is needed. Sonnet plays loaded CDs, iTunes, imported music files and Pandora® radio. Sonnet may be controlled with an iPhone/iPad, a two-way Touch Panel or with its included RF Remote. Sonnet’s TV user interface offers the same HD Cover Art library that is used on other Chroma players and servers.

Chroma 4Play allows you to play discs, downloaded, streaming and mobile movies and music

Only Mozaex plays all four forms of media including discs, downloaded, streaming and mobile. Now with Ultraviolet VUDU support, Chroma allows you to enjoy your UV authorized DVDs and Blu-rays on your mobile iPhone/iPAD, Android, Windows laptop, or via the Chromas VUDU online library. Chroma also plays photo slide shows and more than 10 formats of downloaded videos and home videos.

Chroma comes with a RF handheld remote and may also be controlled by a number of other control systems including Control4®, Vantage®, iPad/iPhone®, Elan® g!, RTI® , Crestron® and many others.

Chroma is sleek, light and whisper quiet

Chroma is enclosed in a compact, ultra-quiet chassis that may be mounted into either a 1.75 inch tall, 1U rack space, behind a TV with its included VESA mounting bracket, or on a shelf. All models weigh less than five pounds. It is especially useful on yachts where large disc-changers cannot be used.

Chroma does not require an expensive, complicated disc-changer and is fully legal

While Kaleidescape™ recently lost a legal case with the DVDCCA, Mozaex continues to be contractually compliant and legal because Mozaex does not ship with DVDCCA’s or other unlicensed decryption software. In addition, since Mozaex has never shipped with any unlicensed decryption software, Mozaex products do not require a cumbersome and expensive disc-changer to play movies.

It is Mozaex’s belief that the recent court ruling against Kaleidescape reaffirms that Mozaex products are legal since Mozaex does not make, traffic, or provide unlicensed decryption software. Mozaex also believes that the court reaffirmed that the DMCA law does not prohibit the use of decryption software for legal purposes which includes storing content you own for your own personal use.

The court interpreted the DMCA law as follows: “A reading of the DMCA makes it clear that its prohibition [of decryption software] applies to the trafficking in and marketing of devices that would circumvent encryption technology, not to the users of such technology.”

As it is with the 100 million PCs sold every year, Mozaex does not ship with or require unlicensed decryption software to be installed or used to play a wide variety of local and online media. It is the user’s responsibility to obey all copyright laws. Mozaex does not promote or approve of the unlawful use of its products. For more details on this subject please visit http://www.mozaex.com/legal.aspx.

Domestic Pricing

The Chroma Series includes a “Chroma” integrated Player and storage server, a “Player” which plays all media, a “Sonnet” which plays music and online media and a “Stor” which adds external USB storage to the Chroma. There is a $100 license fee for adding your own USB or eSATA storage. All Chroma models may be used with other Mozaex Players, Servers and Solos. You can add up to four additional Players and unlimited Sonnets to a Chroma.

The Chroma 1TB is retail priced at $2,995 USD. The Chroma 4TB will be retail priced at $3,995 USD.

The Chroma Player BD is retail priced at $2,795 USD.
The Chroma Player ND (which is a Blu-ray Player with no Blu-ray Drive) is priced at $2,595 USD.
The Chroma Sonnet music player is retail priced at $795 USD.
The Chroma Stor 3TB external add-on USB storage unit is retailed priced at $395 USD.
All models are currently shipping except the Chroma 4TB which will ship in September 2012.
Chroma is covered by a limited two-year parts and labor warranty plus free product lifetime support.

AUSTIN, Texas, May 23, 2012 — BASSMAXX (www.bassmaxx.com), an industry-leading manufacturer of high-output subwoofers and audiophile-quality professional loudspeakers, is proud to announce it is introducing “Sound Defense”, a new enhanced warranty program.

The “Sound Defense” program adds coverage of all driver components, including open coils, for one year from date of purchase, doubling to two years with the purchase of full powered systems. With “Sound Defense”, if a driver fails within the program term, it will be repaired or replaced without charge, regardless of fault. Customers can also extend the “Sound Defense” program beyond the initial term through an annual subscription.

“The point of the ‘Sound Defense’ program is to allow the customer to feel comfortable discovering the full potential of their BASSMAXX system,” explained David Lee, president of BASSMAXX. “By guaranteeing that they won’t be faced with a repair bill for turning up beyond the limits they expect from other boxes, we allow them to gain total confidence in the capabilities of these products. With ‘Sound Defense’, we are guaranteeing that the customer will not encounter the expense of repairing a BASSMAXX loudspeaker, blown for any reason, for up to two years. Being that many of our boxes focus on providing the deepest super-low end, at very high levels, we believe that’s a pretty revolutionary offer.”

BASSMAXX offers a 30-day unconditional money-back satisfaction guarantee and the standard limited warranty covers defects in materials and workmanship for six years on the cabinets and two years on the electronics.
“It’s essential that our customers are thrilled with their purchases, and so we take the responsibility to ensure that they are,” Lee added. “In addition to satisfaction guaranteed, with ‘Sound Defense’, performance and reliability are also guaranteed.”
