Maxxsonic's Receives 1st CES Innovations Award
November 15, 2004 Chicago, IL. - The Maxxsonics MaxxBlaster 2.1 three-piece Sub/Sat speaker system for the extreme electronic gamer received an Innovations 2005 Design and Engineering Showcase honor, CES officials announced. The unique looking 2.1 speaker system received honors in the Electronic Gaming category and was honored during the 2005 CES International Press Preview in New York City. Maxxsonics MaxxBlaster 2.1 will also be recognized in Las Vegas Jan. 6-9, 2005 during the International CES 2005.
Maxxsonics' President Alden Stiefel announced today, "The MaxxBlaster 2.1 is the finest sounding and most-radical looking PC loudspeaker ever developed and to many people's surprise, it comes from a leader in the automotive speaker aftermarket. Just one look at the shark-like missile design brings a big smile and most importantly, the sound is more dramatic than MaxxBlaster's 2.1appearance." The CES Innovations Awards program recognizes consumer technology products, which exhibit excellence in design and engineering. The Industrial Designers Society of America (IDSA) sanctions and acts as Innovations Award program consultants.
"Everyone at Maxxsonics is very pleased that the CES Innovations committee has chosen to honor Maxxsonics first PC gamer product offerings," said Alden Stiefel, CEO for Maxxsonics' brands. "Our customers value the Maxxsonics brands for their exceptional design, originality, and usefulness, welcoming many Hifonics and Crunch USA's products into their store. This is the first design and engineering award for Maxxsonics and it's very rewarding to have one of our products noticed by the 2005 Innovations judges as among the best at CES," added Stiefel.
The MaxxBlaster 2.1 Sat/Sub speaker takes Maxxsonics D-Class amplifier technology to a new arena by providing high-performance bass and realistic spatial-sound performance for the PC gamers. The system includes a loudspeaker-pair shaped like sidewinder rockets, and a powered subwoofer, which looks like an ICB missile complete with sharks face nose-art. The rocket-shaped satellite speakers are powered by a 2 x 20-watt discrete amplifier while the subwoofer is powered by a 1x 80-watt D-class amplifier, all integrated into the subwoofer's aggressive design. The speakers also feature internal illumination for both the rocket-like left & right speakers and the nose-cone and tail of the much-larger ICBM styled subwoofer. The MaxxBlaster 2.1 has a MSRP of $249.95 Available Spring 2005.
