CE audio manufacturer and online retailer OSD announced the launch of a new brand: BLACK by Optimal Speaker Design. The line of premium quality CI-focused audio products will be sold direct to select custom integrators and through a limited number of premium A/V distributors. The brand will not be available for sale direct to consumers.

BLACK by Optimal Speaker Design is a range of premium audio products designed to serve discriminating homeowners and A/V integrators who demand the ultimate in aesthetic style and audio performance. BLACK products includes unique features and technologies that make them better looking, easier to install and more durable, while delivering lifelike sound quality more typically found in free-standing speakers.

BLACK products will be backed by first-of-its-kind warranty that will compensate an integrator $50 for post-installation service calls required due to failure of BLACK Series products within the first 30 days. BLACK speakers are covered by a limited lifetime warranty and BLACK electronics products (coming in 2016) will have a two-year warranty. Anyone interested in the details of this unique warranty program should contact Optimal Speaker Design.

Initially the product line will consist of fifteen in-ceiling speakers and eight in-wall models. All models feature BLACK’s flange-free Perfect Edge magnetic grilles that minimize the visible footprint of the speaker for a clean, elegant and unobtrusive appearance. Additional products including freestanding and built-in subwoofers, outdoor speakers and other audio products are planned for future release.

BLACK round in-ceiling models offer a square grille option to match the aesthetic of rectangular architectural elements such as lighting fixtures and air registers. The BLACK square kit design employs a square mask that doesn’t “telegraph” the round speaker silhouette behind the grille.

CE industry veteran executive Jack Travis (Harman, SVS, Sound United), has been chosen to lead BLACK’s sales and marketing efforts and manage a select group of hand-picked rep firms and distributors. Jack welcomes reps and distributors to make an appointment or drop in at CEDIA as he is looking to fill a few openings. He can be contacted via email jack@osdaudio.com or phone 516-991-7044.

BLACK by Optimal Speaker Design will debut at CEDIA Expo 2015 in booth 7424.
