CEDIA 2002
Custom Electronic Design and Installation Association



  KEF's showing their new Q Series model Q2ds dipole surround loudspeaker ($600 per pair) that uses their critically acclaimed Uni-Q driver. With a 19mm aluminum dome tweeter centrally mounted within the 160mm midrange/woofer cone, the Q2ds has one Uni-Q driver on both front and rear to produce an accurate diffused surround effect. A downward firing, reflex loaded, 130mm bass driver assists in reproducing the lowermost frequencies. The curved cabinet assures low diffraction while internal bracing reduced cabinet resonances that may cause distortion. A choice of three finishes (black ash, maple and dark apple) is available.


Tivoli Audio, with initial design help of the legendary and Audio Hall of Fame Member Henry Kloss, was featuring their RadioWorks Model Two AM/FM stereo radio ($159.95) and Model CD (CD player, $199.99). Both units feature a metallic taupe faceplate with champagne tone knobs housed in a furniture-grade cherry wood cabinet. While operating on normal home electricity for most consumers, a built-in 12V jack allows for use in automotive, RV, and boat environments.


Sanibel Sound were proudly showing the new Piega S4 XL tower loudspeaker ($2,395 per pair) and Piega Sub 4 ($995). The Piega S4 XL tower loudspeaker's thin four inches wide aluminum column features a 1-inch dome tweeter and three 3-inch drivers to produce frequencies from 42Hz to 22kHz. Sensitivity is rated at 88dB/W/m with a nominal impedance of 4 ohms. The Peiga Sub 4 incorporates a 250-watt amplifier and 8.5-inch driver to produce frequencies from 150Hz down to 26Hz. An adjustable output control allows the Sub 4 to integrate with existing systems while the cabinet is beautifully covered in polished aluminum and comes with a choice of aluminum or black front grille.


Linn's KIVOR Music Machine was being demonstrated with two new developments. Namely, a new Graphical User Interface (GUI) and universal wireless remote control. Now operating the KIVOR system is computer interfaced so playing music from the KIVOR's hard disc is as easy as "drag and drop". Operating as a huge computer server, the KIVOR can store upwards of 1,400 hours of music. The complete Linn system can easily distribute music from sixteen independent sources, each with concurrent and independent access and control of the stored KIVOR TUNBOKS disc library, to upward of 128 zones.



McIntosh Laboratory proudly showcased their MVP851 DVD-Video, DVD-Audio, CD, MP3, CD-R and DVD-Ram player ($3,500) that includes an outstanding 54mHz/12-bit video processing. Progressive scan video output, 192kHz/24-bit audio decoding and multi-channel audio format support insure high sound quality and extreme flexibility. Audio features include Dolby Digital and dts while both optical and coaxial digital outputs may be used for outboard surround sound processing. The MVP851 can be used with any pre-amplifier for both stereo and/or six-channel analog inputs.
