Portland, OR–Custom loudspeaker solution manufacturer Triad Speakers Inc., has been granted the exclusive rights to distribute Lyngdorf Audio products in the U.S.
Lyngdorf Audio–founded in 2005 by hi-fi industry veteran Peter
Lyngdorf–is an international market leader in high-performance audio technologies. Its RoomPerfect is a digital signal processing-based (DSP) room
correction system designed to improve audio performance by digitally correcting room-caused anomalies that would otherwise hinder sound quality.
The RoomPerfect DSP-based 2.2-channel digital room correction system is
available either as a stand-alone processor, in a digital pre-amp or as an
option in the companys integrated amplifier. Additionally available is a
premium line-up encompassing fully- and semi-digital amplifiers, an outboard analog-to-digital (A/D) converter, a CD player/transport, and loudspeakers.
I am extremely pleased that Triad has been chosen as the vehicle to launch Lyngdorf Audio in the U.S.,” said Triad Speakers founder and president Larry Pexton. “So impressive are the Lyngdorf products that many employees within the Triad organization have already purchased components for their own homes!
Triad Speakers product specialist Steve Colburn is managing the Lyngdorf
distribution effort from the companys Portland headquarters. Colburn said that initially the Lyngdorf products will be offered to a limited number of U.S. dealers. [“This is] a select group with the desire to bring state-of-the-art stereo performance to those listening rooms that suffer from real-world acoustic challenges,” he said. “In doing so, Triad furthers its tradition of offering the industrys best and broadest assortment of applications-based audio solutions.
