RBH Sound and its partners Auralex, Audio Design Associates (ADA), Screen Innovations, D-Box and Panamorph will show installers at EHX Spring 2009 that the demo is the key to successfully selling home theater. 

According to the somewhat secretive Daren Egan, marketing director for RBH, the exhibitors in Room 230D are planning on a variety of demos that attendees will recognize.

“We’re planning on demonstrating this incredible system using a couple of native 2.40:1 content clips with the final clip being an exciting chapter from the Iron Man Blu-ray,” he says.

Attendees should watch for the group’s approach to acoustics. Taking an organic, mechanical approach, the room skips the use of adding electronic EQ to the signal chain through their implementation of Auralex’s products.

The room will also employ ProjectionDesign’s Avielo Optix 1080p dual-lamp projector and D-Box’s motion seating system, which provides what some feel is the final element to the complete home theater experience.
