SpeakerCraft this week announced the debut of the company's first-ever receiver products, known as the Vital series. The company introduced two products: a 2-channel 710 Whole House model, and a more advanced 7.1 channel 910 version.
Both units are shipping now.
The Vital 910 offers 7.1 channel performance, HD audio and video, as is meant to work with home theater systems. The 2-channel 710 sports 80 watts per channel and offers two subwoofer outputs and a 30-preset AM/FM tuner.
The Vital 910 has an MSRP of $1,250, while the Vital 710 has a price tag of $425.
"Nobody will ever accuse our industry of having a shortage of receiver products, so we saw no need to develop just another 'me-too' receiver line," the company's president, Jeremy Burkhardt, said as part of the announcement.
"What makes our Vital receivers better is their ability to reproduce sound with a level of detail that is simply astounding. Most people have never even heard some of the nuance in recordings they already own. Now, home theater devotees can experience movies and music just as the creators themselves intended. The Vital series is a real game changer."
