The group is launching more than two dozen new products across its six big audio brands: Arcam, JBL Synthesis, Mark Levinson, Lexicon and Revel.
Don’t expect one mega-high-end $100,000+ demo room at CEDIA Expo this year, though. Instead, the Harman group will present its wares in three spaces featuring audio systems in the $15,000 to $75,000 range.
One demo room will feature a 9.1.6-channel theater setup, and two will showcase 7.1.4 systems. Harman is introducing two new 16-channel solutions, including a processor and the company’s first-ever AVR with that many channels.
In the video above, Harman’s Jim Garrett explains all the goodies being introduced and featured at Expo, including one brand new audio category for the company, and some new wizardry around JBL’s popular SCL-3 in-ceiling speakers.
“There is not an in-ceiling speaker in the market that can do what this one does,” Garrett says of the new SCL-3 design. “I’m super-excited about that product.”
There will also be some overlap between Harman and its parent company Samsung, located at a CEDIA booth next door.
