2017-Stealth-Logo-Banner-1200-px-Black-300x23-1Truly Invisible Speakers — Huge Audio Impact with no Aesthetic Impact!

D-Tools Partner Newsletter 22.02 - LineaResponseX #0

LineaResponseX (LRX) Series speakers are the highest performing, truly invisible speakers available — not just another hole-in-the-wall speaker with an “invisible” grille. They make no impact on the aesthetics of living spaces yet meet the performance needs of today’s demanding audio systems.

LRX Series invisible speakers are the ideal choice for audiophiles that seek impeccable audio performance for home theater surround sound, ATMOS systems, stereo listening, and game rooms yet desire the aesthetic benefits that only true invisibility can offer.

At the heart of each LRX speaker is the FidelityGlass Advanced™ laminated radiating diaphragm which is driven by high- and mid- frequency motors along with true cone woofers to generate smooth, full range sound without any visible speaker grilles.

LRX speakers are installed directly into a wall or ceiling in a process similar to installing a drywall patch. Standard wall finishing techniques are all that is necessary to render the speakers completely invisible. On-site finishing options include latex paint, light wallpaper, fabrics and selected texture coats.

D-Tools Partner Newsletter 22.02 - LineaResponseX #2

LineaResponseX invisible speakers are designed to achieve a lifetime of maintenance free use. Built in circuitry prevents excessive amplifier input from damaging the speakers - creating peace-of-mind.

A/V integrators love LineaResponseX speakers because the impressive power handling and 170-degree field of dispersion allows them to easily integrate into any top-tier project. Designers love LRX speakers because their completely invisible nature won’t interfere with the flow and style of a room. Homeowners love LRX speakers because they just sound great!

wallsmart logoWALL-SMART Launches New Wall Mounts for Sonos Soundbars


WALL-SMART’s new flush wall mounts for Sonos soundbars minimize the appearance of audio technology in homes where cosmetics are just as important as sound quality.

WALL-SMART, the leading manufacturer of innovative mounting hardware that conceals a wide variety of smart devices flush with wall and ceiling surfaces, debuts at IBS 2022, Booth W5779, Sonos Soundbar Wall Mounts, a new line of flush wall mounts for Sonos’ popular Beam and Arc Soundbars. The mounts enable the soundbars to be recessed within wall surfaces, giving builders, architects, designers, and systems integrators an installation alternative to placing soundbars inside furniture or attaching directly to displays.


WALL-SMART makes the installation of the Sonos Beam and Sonos Arc soundbars simple for retrofit applications. The wall mounts, which are available in black and white, are covered with an attractive, matching acoustically and IR transparent grille cloth, allowing sound to transmit to the audience unfettered. For convenient and affordable shipping and delivery, the mounts ship as a kit ready to assemble on site. All the materials to build and install the WALL-SMART Sonos Soundbar Wall Mounts, as well as detailed instructions and documentation, are included for quick, easy assembly and installation.


“We are thrilled to bring the WALL-SMART Sonos Soundbar Wall Mounts to the custom integration and design/build communities. They were developed specifically to provide more options to install Sonos’ incredibly popular soundbars into luxury homes to the delight of homeowners,” says WALL-SMART Co-CEO and Founder Galia Ben-Dor. “While these Sonos soundbars are beautiful in their own right, sometimes furniture is not desired or possible underneath the display. For these applications, WALL-SMART Sonos Soundbar Wall Mounts deliver a clean, minimalist appearance.”


Where to See WALL-SMART

IBS 2022 attendees can see WALL-SMART’s Sonos Soundbar Wall Mounts and other home technology concealment solutions at Booth W5779, as well as at the New Product Zone, which features 75 of the most cutting-edge products for the building industry.

wyrestorm-logo-300x59-2-2Powerful Plug & Play - WyreStorm’s 8K Essentials

Keeping up with the rapid advances in technology, and in line with WyreStorm’s vision of fully compatible 8k devices across the board, WyreStorm released several new products in the Essentials lineup. The entire upcoming line is developed as a simple and affordable line of plug-and-play products for connectivity in the home, retail stores, and light commercial business environments.

The New 4x1 EXP-SW-0401-8K and 2x1 EXP-SW-0201-8K HDMI switchers, and the 1x2 EXP-SP-0102-8K HDMI splitter all support HDMI 2.1 and are compatible with the latest 8K HDMI cables from WyreStorm. Future proofing your system just became achievable.

WyreStorm’s new products fit perfectly into the 8K ecosystem supporting up to 8k@60Hz and 4k@120Hz resolutions. They are compatible with HDMI 2.1 40Gbps with Audio De-Embed, ARC & CEC Passthrough.


These next generation technologies are tailor made for residential high-end homes and light commercial applications with the need to switch between emerging 8K sources while distributing 5.1 audio via source de-embed or ARC, and distribute 8K content to 8K displays. WyreStorm’s new HDMI Switcher is a powerful plug-and-play 8K HDMI switcher. This switcher also supports DSC 1.2a pass-through, an approved method of compression in accordance to the HDMI 2.1 specification, allowing up to a 10K@120Hz signal to be transmitted losslessy.


On the other hand, WyreStorm’s new 8K 1x2 HDMI Splitter is made to distribute one 8K source to two displays. Featuring 8K60/4K120Hz resolution and compatible with HDMI 2.1 1:2, the new splitter comes with Downscaling & Audio De-Embed features.


Don’t forget, the new switchers and splitters can be paired with any of our CAB-HAOC-FRL’s to extend your 8K@60Hz signal further than a standard 8K HDMI cable!


The entire essentials line comes with a comprehensive Two-Year Warranty on all products and lifetime warranty available on all cables.
