CEA Names 2014 Mark of Excellence Winners
The winners of the 2014 Mark of Excellence Awards, presented by the CEA's TechHome Division, were announced at the International Consumer Electronics Show (CES). Here's a look at the winning products, installations, and top integrator of the year.
Speaker of the Year: Stealth Acoustics StingRay StingRay is a hermetically-sealed and fully waterproof outdoor speaker offering unprecedented environmental durability and impressive full-range sound, all packaged in a pleasingly shaped fiber-infused ASA exterior plastic enclosure which provides a slim profile and clean unobtrusive look. The speaker incorporates Stealth’s proprietary Fidelity Glasstm impenetrable fiberglass front radiating surface, internally driven by an acoustically-coupled high-power cone woofer and direct-coupled neodymium 30mm tweeter. Due to the unique vibratory nature of its flat fiberglass radiating surface which mimics how sound is created in real instruments and voices, Stingray is a very natural-sounding outdoor speaker with well-defined highs, extended lows and excellent tonal balance. StingRay provides homogeneous 170 degree hemispherical coverage across all frequencies from 45Hz to 18kHz, avoiding the hot and dead spots in coverage caused by traditional “beamy” speakers. This means using fewer StingRays offers better coverage than traditional outdoor speakers. StingRay’s certified Ingress Protection (IP) rating of IP-68 meets strident IEC measurement standards for environmental survivability, marking StingRay as literally operable underwater.Back to article
