NHT Xd Wins G4techTV's 'Best of CES' AwardNew DEQX calibrated DSP speaker corrected system honored (January 12, 2005)
Capping off a week of product demonstrations, and news that the product will ship later this month, NHT Xd DEQX Calibrated DSP speaker corrected system won G4techTV's "Best of CES" Award for the Ultimate Audio category.
Hosted by Kevin Rose ("The Screen Savers") and G4techTV Managing Director of Tech Editorial, Andrew Hawn, G4techTV's Best of CES Awards recognized the top 12 new technology products coming out in the 2005 International CES. Winners in 12 separate categories were chosen from all the companies exhibiting at the show. The program was held January 7 on site at the Las Vegas Convention Center.
"This project would have never made it to completion without the help and involvement of more than 12 different companies," said Chris Byrne, Managing Director, NHT. "Their research and development combined with our expertise in acoustic system design have resulted in the most accurate, easiest to use loudspeaker system currently available.
Added Byrne: "All of us are grateful to the judges and G4techTV for recognizing the inevitable long-term impact of this product."
In addition to the Best of CES Award for Ultimate Audio, NHT Xd received an Innovations Award from the CEA.
NHT Xd is the result of the combined efforts of three companies - NHT, DEQX (Digital Equalization and Crossover), and PowerPhysics - that pooled their respective core technologies to develop a system that removes virtually all possible distortion from the audio signal path while providing a much wider soundfield that remains accurate, even when listening far off axis. The end result is a small system that offers a new level of clarity than any previously heard. The system features two small speaker cabinets; a powered bass, or woofer module; and a hybrid outboard component that houses the DEQX-calibrated DSP (digital signal processor) and PowerPhysics One-Cycle Sound amplifiers. Additional channels and bass modules can be added to create surround systems.
Since it was founded in 1986, NHT(R) has continually challenged the notion that the very best sound reproduction must come at a premium price. Its products from past to present speak volumes of NHT's dedication to sonic excellence. For more information, visit www.nhthifi.com. NHT (Now Hear This) is a brand name of Rockford Corporation(R). Rockford Corporation is based in Tempe, Ariz. and is a publicly traded company under the NASDAQ stock symbol ROFO.
