GoldenEar Technology has announced the availability of the new Invisa 7000 and Invisa MPX architectural loudspeakers. Both models are priced at $499 USD each.
The Invisa HTR 7000 is designed for use as a ceiling-mounted main left-, right- or center-channel speaker in high-quality home-theater and music systems, as well as for use as a side or rear surround speaker. It has a flat, round, magnetically attached micro-perf grille that covers the mounting flange for an attractive, nearly invisible look. An optional square grille is also available. We're told that the drivers are mounted at precisely calculated angles so that they acoustically align directly at the normal listening position for "exceptional imaging, superior frequency response, remarkable clarity and precise focus." The driver complement combines the 7" high-definition cast-basket driver used in the company's Aon 3 with a GoldenEar High Velocity Folded Ribbon (HVFR) tweeter.
The Invisa MPX is said to combine the advantages of a direct-radiating loudspeaker with the enhanced spaciousness and dispersion of a bipolar speaker to make it the "perfect choice" for the rear or side surround channels of a multichannel installation. It can also be used as a front main speaker or for distributed-audio and multi-room installations. GoldenEar representatives say that the Invisa MPX can be easily mounted in ceilings or in walls and is very flexible in terms of orientation. Like the other Invisa-series speakers, it has a flat, magnetically attached micro-perf grille. The Invisa MPX combines two cast-basket, 5” bass-midrange drivers, a High Velocity Folded Ribbon tweeter, and a complex precision crossover network with a high-frequency equalization switch. Like the Invisa HTR 7000, the Invisa MPX features GoldenEar’s unique Non-Periodic Diffraction Control and Wave-Launch technology combine for enhanced clarity and source-less sound radiation.
GoldenEar Technology announced that the new Invisa HTR 7000 and Invisa MPX are now shipping in both the US and Canada, as well as in their 25 export markets.
