Altec Lansing unveils 200 Watt powerhouse
Altec Lansing, a division of Plantronics Inc. and a market leader in digital audio, has unveiled the new Expressionist™ Ultra (MX6021), an aesthetically styled and powerful three-piece home speaker system for computers, MP3 players and more.
The Expressionist Ultra is a powerful computer audio system packed in a great looking body. The 200 watt clear sound is fed by five digital amplifiers powering five separate drivers for an accurately tuned sonic sound providing the required boom clarity. Each speaker driver – the 3” midranges, the 1” neodymium tweeters and the 6 1/2” long-throw subwoofer — is individually powered resulting in exceptional audio detail and earth-shaking bass that can be genuinely felt. This uniquely designed 3-piece powerhouse takes music, movies and games to a whole new listening level.
Commenting on the launch, Rohit Agarwal, Business Manager, Altec Lansing India, said, “Our products are designed keeping in mind the preferences of our customers. We have brought MX 6021 2.1 speakers to the Indian shore which occupies less space and at the same time gives out a sound quality of a 5.1 speaker system. The sonic boom sound speaker system is meant for gaming and multimedia purposes.”
The aesthetic looks of the Expressionist Ultra breaks from the traditional form of other speakers. It is a piece designed to be put on display rather than hidden away in an office or home environment. The subwoofer features a distinctive trapezoidal design that breaks up standing waves and delivers the deep bass that brings multimedia to life.
“Altec Lansing has been coming up with good products to suit the Indian customer’s requirements. The Expressionist ™ Ultra comes packed with a whole lot of goodies like a great outstanding design which suits all types of interiors, and an amazing sound quality at 200 watts,” said Rajesh Goenka, VP - Sales & Marketing, Rashi Peripherals. He further added, “Nowadays more and more people are storing and enjoying all of their music and entertainment on their PC. So they expect a speaker system which sounds great and plays loud without distorting their favorite movie scene or video game. We are confident that the Expressionist Ultra speaker system will fulfill the Indian customers need for a good sound system.”
The Expressionist Ultra speaker system is the perfect compliment to today’s stylish computers and LCD monitors, and with the kind of power output and sound quality it has, the system can rival any home stereos and can also be positioned for use with TVs and gaming consoles.
