CEDIA Audio Prepares for Expansion and Change
Polk Audio comes to CEDIA with its RM Digital Solution-1, an integrated Dolby Digital home theater system designed for non-hobbyists who want "high-end" audio performance without choosing and setting up separate components. The RMDS-1 began shipping last month at $2,699. Also from Polk: The RM7500 six-piece home theater speaker system, styled in a high-gloss black laminate with satellite speakers designed for on-wall placement.
Rockustics, having cornered the market on outdoor, simulated-stone speaker systems, offers, among other things, the Sub Rock, a two-way, 350-pound outdoor subwoofer designed to look like huge lump of sedimentary, flaky shale. The Sub Rock retails for $1,800.
Russound will show its advanced in-wall remote keypad for use with its CA 6.4 and CA 4.4pi multi-source, multi-zone control systems. Retailing at $250, the CA LCD keypad features a liquid crystal display readout, user-selectable green or amber backlighting and an IR receiver for remote control of the source.
