As TVs get thinner — and we’re sure to see some razor-thin TVs at CEDIA Expo 2009 — it raises the bar for soundbar manufacturers.

Well, it actually narrows the bar.

Leon Speakers, which earlier this year added a behemoth OS (over-sized) Soundbar fit for 100-plus-inch TVs, has launched a soundbar aimed at the latest ultra-thin TVs.

The Horizon 212-LCR-UT is 1.5 inches deep and 3.25 inches tall and its MSRP starts at $1,695.

So Leon is getting SMALLER. (“Airplane!” fans? Anybody?)

Leon’s 212, which is available now, will be joined at CEDIA Expo 2009 by three other new or about-to-be-released products. They include:

  • AXIS In-Ceiling Speakers
  • AAROS 10 Passive In-Room Subwoofer and 1,000 Watt Amplifier
  • Enhanced Horizon and Profile Series

Also, Leon plans to talk to dealers about creating customized packages of its different series speakers.
