Simple, Elegant, Integrated Home Theater Experience
From Switzerland, Geneva Sound is "furniture music": a renewed fusion of home entertainment and home décor that brings technology and design full circle. A century ago, Emile Berliner’s new flat disc, the gramophone, was engineered to work inside a wooden cabinet, the Victrola. The simplicity and furniture quality of Herr Berliner’s design made it acceptable in the American home, where Mr. Edison’s clunky phonograph had failed. Not unlike the iPod a century later, the European sense of style merged with functional simplicity became immensely popular. It gave birth to the home entertainment industry.
But in the last few decades, consumer electronics makers with a fetish for gadgetry have pushed piles of components on consumers, trying to convince them that more boxes and complexity means better sound. In the GenevaSound Home Theater simplicity and fidelity are reconciled in a balanced array of components (iPod, CD, FM and more) in one piano-lacquered wooden cabinet with a classic style that lets a complete, multi-function Hi Fi system blend into your home decor as simply as a lamp. It's nothing less than the complete reinvention of the classic dedicated home stereo system. In a first since the advent of HDTV, GenevaSound Home Theater simplifies setup and cuts clutter by fusing all the audio and furniture needed for home Theater into one streamlined sideboard of thick, distortion-proof, hand-lacquered wood.
It’s a breakthrough in eliminating clutter and complexity – the big problems consumers report with HD home theater. Geneva products are changing home entertainment retail, too, as the only sophisticated electronics merchandised by style setters such as Barneys New York, Conrans, Design Within Reach, or Fred Segal in Los Angeles.
This hybrid of high quality furniture and high-fidelity electronics combines Swiss precision engineering with the Swiss ethos of simplicity and quality. GenevaSound Home Theater has wide, deep 2.1 surround with its patented EmbracingSound DSP. There’s a powerful, all-digital 700-Watt amplifier and seven speakers, with a 12-inch subwoofer, for startling film sound effects. Each speaker is individually powered and sealed for accurate, balanced acoustics. There’s also a CD player and a radio receiver, and iPod/iPhone dock. As well, there’s ample space for components like a cable box, game console, or DVD player. A TV can be placed on the cabinet or wall-mounted.
And it plays well with your iPod or iPhone. With the integrated dock, you can just drop your iPod or iPhone in and fill the room with sound.
The video outputs mean you can also watch your mobile videos on your TV.
The GenevaSound Home Theater is your simple, foolproof link for transitioning between the mobile experience and the full-size home theater experience with your mobile player.
Home theater doesn't get simpler than this. The design speaks to the classic era of elegantly integrating furniture and entertainment, while the latest technology puts it ahead of its contemporaries now and in the future.
