MARANTZ ES7001 Soundbar
Marantz introduced their S.S.X. (Simple Surround Xperience) Soundbar at CEDIA 2007. The S.S.X. system (Model ES7001) features six built-in speakers in a simple and sleek surround sound package that's ideal for use with flat-panel TVs in smaller living spaces or secondary viewing areas.
All loudspeaker drivers, amplifiers and digital processing technologies are housed and strategically arrayed in the ES7001's single soundbar.
Most notable is the ES7001's total ease of set-up, thanks in large part to its built-in HDMI repeating, which allows simple single-wire connectivity to source components. As soon as a DVD player, game system, cable box or satellite receiver is connected via HDMI, the system is fully functional and ready to perform. Additionally, very few adjustments are needed, as the ES7001 doesn't rely on sonic reflection technology. Users simply turn it on and begin enjoying incredibly rich and lifelike surround sound from their favorite source component. The S.S.X. system Model ES7001 will be available in September 2007 for a suggested retail price of $1,299.Read the Full Report
