Responding to demand for “LCD-thin” surround speakers that provide high-definition audio without unsightly boxes and cables, soundmatters international, has announced the upcoming availability of the SLIMstage all-in-one surround speaker console.
Featuring 210 watts from eight internal amplifiers and measuring a 39 (w) x 3.3 (h) x 3.4 (d) inches, SLIMstage provides detailed surround sound from both stereo and 5.1 signals without reflecting walls, and deep, articulate bass without the need for an external subwoofer.
SLIMstage features four Linear Magnetic Drive main/satellite speakers in its compact console, along with a 210-watt class-D power amplifier. Deep bass extension is achieved by way of nine bass drivers, including three down-firing Extreme-Energy subwoofers assisted by six mass radiators, resulting in low frequencies that reach down to 45Hz.
Along with the speaker driver array are several convenience features, including three digital audio inputs (two optical, one coax), three analog inputs (two on the rear panel plus one front iPod input), as well as a headphone output jack for private listening in virtual surround.

- Available in Q2 2007
- Includes virtual surround technology EuphonyHD
- Designed to complement flat panels 37 inches & larger
- IR remote included
