Waterfall unveils ‘groundbreaking’ hi-fi loudspeaker concept7 October 2009
The SERIO satellite speaker is said to feature Waterfall’s “striking glass design expertise” and offer high-quality sound. Designed for both hi-fi and AV applications, SERIO comes with three mounting options (on-wall, tabletop and stand-mount) and is available in three body colours (black, white and silver with matching grilles; orange and green ‘fashion’ grilles are also available).
Incorporating Waterfall’s patented Heatstream technology – which is said to enable “incredible” levels of power-handling from a compact speaker unit – SERIO offers peak power of 150W and frequency response (+/- 3dB) of 180Hz to 20 kHz.
SERIO is also available in two packaged configurations: 2.1 for home audio and 5.1 for home cinema use. Both packages are supplied with Waterfall’s HF1 (High Force 1) compact, active subwoofer, which boasts 150W of onboard amplification delivered through a 9in bass driver.
Nadine Dewell from Waterfall Audio France told IE Residential: “Although we have wanted to produce a miniature speaker system we were not prepared to bring to market a product which did not meet out strict standards for sound quality, technological innovation and aesthetic design. With the SERIO we are proud that the many hours of development have resulted in a speaker system which meets our objectives for style and performance and carries on the Waterfall tradition.”
SERIO is distributed in the UK by Invision UK.
