OSD Audio will soon be shipping its Sound Platform (SP2-1), an active, multi-driver tabletop speaker system that includes a pair of downward firing 5.25-inch woofers, four 2.5-inch midrange drivers and two 1-inch silk-dome tweeters.

Brea, California-based OSD Audio equips the Sound Platform with optical and coax digital inputs, stereo analog RCA inputs, Bluetooth with aptX streaming capabilities and DSP processing to create a more enveloping listening experience. The bi-amp design features individual 20 Watt amplifiers, and the two down-firing 5.25” woofers cover the left and right channel low frequencies

“Soundbars can’t be beat for making TV audio sound bigger and better, but there aren’t many that can accurately be described as being true music speakers,” notes Doug Turner, vice president of sales, OSD Audio. “The Sound Platform is configured to give people rich, full range audio where and when they want it, no matter how casual or picky they are when it comes to home audio.”

OSD says the Sound Platform provides users with a tonally accurate and broad sounding solution that is capable of playing at high volumes without distortion.

The Sound Platform will ship in time for CEDIA Expo 2013 with an MSRP of $599.95.
