Origin Acoustics has announced its agreement with LK Distributing to co-distribute Amina Sound, a leading manufacturer of invisible loudspeakers, in the United States effective immediately. Origin Acoustics will work in tandem with the existing North American distributor LK Distributing to grow and support the brand. LK Distributing will continue as the primary U.S. warehouse for Amina Sound.
Amina Sound, founded in 1999 and based in Huntingdon, England, is a premium British loudspeaker company that created the world’s first plaster over invisible loudspeaker in 2001. With an increasing need for clean, clutter-free integrated lifestyle-technology in both commercial and residential applications, the requirement for discreet, invisible audio solutions is in demand.
Amina’s technology interacts with the room, with linear 180° x 180° all-around dispersion characteristics that sets Amina Sound apart. With the invention of VPT (Vibrational Panel Technology), Amina has been able to take the common loudspeaker design and replace the cone with a flat panel. Instead of moving forward and backward visibly like a typical cone design, a VPT panel uses small vibrations to generate sound that can be heard but not seen. This allows for seamless integration of a loudspeaker into any wall, ceiling, or flat decorative panel with zero visual impact.
Amina offers two core technologies to allow integration of invisible loudspeakers into any room: Edge and Mobius. Both products can be installed in either new or retrofit applications. Edge is intended for quick and simple installations where walls or ceilings are finished with just paint, wallpaper, or a thin veneer. Mobius is the solution for more complex installations that call for a premium finish such as drywall compound, plaster, veneer, or millwork on top of the speaker.
Amina Sound loudspeakers will be on display at CEDIA Expo 2021 at the Origin Acoustics exhibit #5006.
