Leon Speakers, manufacturer of handcrafted, bespoke audio and AV solutions, will be exhibiting as part of the Custom Home Europe Stand, 1-N85.
Coming off of a year-long celebration of its 20th anniversary, Leon will be bringing a full range of speakers to the show, but highlighting their most talked about new product, the Horizon Interactive FIT soundbar, winner of both the CE Pro Best Award & the CEDIA Best of Show Award from Residential Systems at last year’s CEDIA Expo in San Diego, California.
The maker says the concept is suitable for residential and commercial spaces and is the first and only soundbar on the market that combines high-fidelity audio with internal AV storage space—all concealed behind a custom grill built to match the exact width of the display.
The HIFIT features (2) 4in woofers and (2) 28mm tweeters in a cabinet that’s only 2.75in deep, and is available in two models: HIFIT44UX to accommodate TVs up to 65in diagonal and HIFIT44UX-OS for displays up to 90in diagonal. The internal storage area is flexible enough to house a number of small-format AV components including Apple TV, Amazon Echo Dot, Roku, Leon’s new OTO MCA 200 amplifier, Control4 controllers and smaller webcams.
“Our dealers have always looked to us for creative ways to integrate design with technology and the HIFIT is our latest innovation”, says Noah Kaplan, president & founder of Leon Speakers. “From the front, it looks like our traditional Horizon soundbar, but behind the grill, you’ve got the flexibility to store small AV components, providing a streamlined solution for technology integration.”
In addition to the HIFIT, Leon will be debuting the brand new OTO MCA 200, a high-powered modular control amplifier designed to make any of the brand’s speakers plug and play. The company will also be showcasing products from the existing portfolio, including a selection of Horizon Series soundbars and Profile Series sidemount speakers which are built to match the width or height of any display, a variety of discrete architectural speakers, ultra-thin subwoofers including the new powered Aaros A8-200, and the Boundary Series outdoor speakers in custom hydro-dipped finishes.
