Niles Audio launched a quartet of horizontal in-wall soundbars believed to be the industry’s first such products.
Four Niles in-wall soundbars can be flush-mounted into a wall without cutting wall studs.
The four Cynema Soundfield systems consist of one passive model and three active models in 48-inch, 55-inch and 65-inch widths. The four models are shipping at suggested retails of $1,195 for the passive CSF-48P and $1,599, $1,749, and $1,999 for the active CSF-48A, CSF-55A, and CSF-65A, respectively. All are three-channel soundbars.
Niles designed the soundbars so that installers don’t have to cut wall studs to make room for the bars. Instead, installers mount a horizontal rail onto wall studs, then snap speaker and amplifier modules into the rail. Installers move the modules left or right through an opening in the wall to position them between studs, deliver the best soundstage, and align them with a wall-mount TV.
The powered models include a separate low-voltage power supply that mounts to a stud bay next to a wall outlet or behind the display. The low-voltage power supply eliminates the need to run new high-voltage wiring in the wall, eliminating the need for a licensed electrician, Niles said.
