Salagar Sonics’ three new products: the Sonnet S207, the Serenade S307 and the Sonata S212, harmonizes with its recently launched Salagar Symphony S210 loudspeaker line, making Salagar a matchless Active Theatre. The Sonnet S207 and Serenade S307 both include SALAGAR’s X-ACT auto-signal sensing, programmable digital crossover/controller feeding a pair of Bang & Olufsen ICEpower Class D amplifiers to drive the transducers like the Symphony S210. The Sonnet S207 is effective as a surround speaker, main stereo speaker (as a compact stand mounted center channel), runs different DSP programs although it uses the same internal amplifier module as the larger Symphony and like the Symphony S210, these are switch selectable to optimize the speaker for a variety of room dynamics or input sources.
The horizontal format Serenade S307 along with Salagar’s variable wall thicknesses and brace structures also features two 7″ mid-woofers matching those of Sonnet S207 and like the Sonnet and Symphony, it uses the Scanspeak AirCirc tweeter and internal amplifier module running different programming. The balanced inputs on all the Salagar range are flexible enough for easy placement as it relived of the cable length issues. According to Gary DiChiara, Co-founder and Vice President of SALAGAR Sonics, Inc:
As a center channel, the Serenade S307 provides an ideal accompaniment to the Sonnets and Symphonies for home theater applications. We’re really thrilled to have the ability to reprogram the SALAGAR X-ACT and use identical hardware in such diverse products, and do it all in a world-beating development timescale.
Last on the list is the Sonata S212 subwoofer, which features an internal 500W amplifier, two 12″ drivers (one of which is passive), direct LFE input as well as left and right stereo inputs that feed an adjustable parametric equalizer. DiChiara futher added:
We’re particularly pleased with the responsiveness and richness of bass we’ve achieved with the Sonata S212. Using the passive radiator has allowed us to make a high-performance but compact design that is at home in both theater and music applications.
Each of the new products is available in six different wood finishes and eight automotive grade paint finishes. Salagar will also customize its finishes according to customer specification. Speaker stands for the Sonnet and Serenade are sold separately and range from US$175 to US$999 per pair.
