PETALUMA, CALIFORNIA, September 10, 2012 — Niles®, The First Name In Custom Installation®, today announced that it has been awarded a 2012 Resi Award by Residential Systems magazine in the category of Best In-Wall Speaker for the new CM Ceiling Mount Architectural Loudspeakers at the 2012 Resi Awards CEDIA EXPO Reception in Indianapolis, Indiana.
"It’s a great honor to have the CM Loudspeakers recognized by Residential Systems," said Paul Starkey, Chief Marketing Officer at Niles. "These speakers deliver a high performance sound quality and are able to blend discreetly into any environment, making them the perfect choice for any residential application."
Each year, Residential Systems magazine presents the prestigious Resi Awards to honor the best products exhibited at CEDIA EXPO, based on their industrial design.
"This awards program is unique in its focus on the creativity and artistry from manufacturers exhibiting on the show floor this week in Indianapolis," said Jeremy Glowacki, Residential Systems’ managing editorial director. " Our goal is to honor those who focus not only on engineering, but also functionality and how a product more elegantly solves a problem."
The CM Loudspeakers’ thin-bezel and ultra-low profile provides a crisp, clean finish, and the magnetically attached grilles greatly reduce installation time. The series includes round grilles standard and square grilles are available. The grilles can be painted to coordinate with any surrounding dècor for added installation flexibility. The grilles are rust-resistant, eliminating service calls for loudspeakers installed in moisture-prone areas such as saunas, bathrooms and even outdoors under eaves.
Niles’ patent-pending spring-loaded mounting clamps compensate for a number of environmental conditions that would cause the mounting surface for the new CM series to expand or contract, such as high heat and humidity. The mounting clamps help to prevent material compression and stripping of screws by providing tactile feedback during the installation process to indicate when the installer should stop drilling.
All speakers in the line feature the same premium components found in Niles’ DS Directed Soundfield series including copper caps, high-level crossovers and Kapton voice coil formers to deliver the exceptional sonic performance expected from Niles loudspeakers. Additionally, the loudspeakers have been voiced specifically to handle dynamic content from Blu-ray discs as well as compressed music from sources such as iPods, Pandora and Rhapsody to ensure the best in audiophile performance from virtually any source.
