Sound United, parent company to Bowers & Wilkins, Denon, Marantz, Polk Audio, Definitive Technology, Classé, and Boston Acoustics, today announced several floor-standing and select center channel speakers from the Definitive Technology Demand Series and Polk Audio Legend Series are the first speaker lines in the home theater market to garner IMAX Enhanced Certification.
Sound United brands Denon and Marantz were among the first electronics companies to get IMAX Enhanced certified products with models like the Marantz SR8015 and Denon AVR-X8500H. IMAX and DTS partnered with Hollywood sound mixers and sound experts to help design the certification process for loudspeakers. As a result of this work, the Demand Series and Legend Series loudspeaker lines from Definitive Technology and Polk Audio, respectively, are the first of a series of loudspeaker products to be certified for use with IMAX Enhanced home theaters.
The Definitive Technology Demand D17, D15, D5c and Polk Audio Legend L800, L600 and L400 are IMAX Enhanced certified and available for purchase. New IMAX Enhanced certified product lines within the Sound United brand portfolio will be announced at a later date.
