If you love that piano-gloss look to your super sleek flat-panel TV and need a speaker to match, Pinnacle Speakers has the design for you.
The company has introduced its Quantum Series of flat-panel speakers, so you can have a wall-mounted (if you desire) elegant piano-gloss front left/center/right channel speaker that looks like it was built with your television.
The lineup is available in five models that range from $499 to $1,999—the QP 3, QP 5, QP 7, QP 9 and behemoth QP 15.
All models in the series feature sonic goodies such as: non-resonant die-cast aluminum cabinet that is internally braced; tweeters that have been plasma vapor-coated with a thin diamond layer; video shielding so there’s no interference; lightweight titanium tweeters; butyl rubber-surrounded woofers; gold-plated binding posts; and built-in overload protection circuitry.
You can mount ‘em to your walls with the included Flush Fit hardware, and they’ll gleam back at you with that shiny black reflection.
Specific pricing (apiece) is: QP 3, $499; QP 5, $699; QP 7, $999; QP 9, $1,199; and QP 15, $1,999.
