Audiophile Meets Audiostyle: The Next Generation of Leon
This year, Leon has shifted focus again to develop a new generation of products meant to be showpieces: “For some time, we’ve been developing solutions that are intended to match any given installation. However, there’s been a shift in the industry as design has become more relevant for our customers. Our new products still offer the audio quality for which we are known, but can stand out in a room as a design piece. The result is a true meeting of audiophile and audiostyle.” To help move the company in this new direction, Leon has appointed Robert Waissi, a graduate of the Savannah College of Art and Design masters program, as the company’s senior industrial designer.
Included in Leon’s new offering is the Profile 404-X-A. Beautifully styled and expertly crafted, the Profile 404-X-A delivers high fidelity and high-design to any environment. With a depth of only 4 inches, the Profile 404-X-A complements new, thinner flat-panel TVs, and can be custom-built to match the exact height and finish of any display. In addition, the loudspeaker is available in a number of wood-veneered baffles, including bamboo and maple, and can be painted to any color to match any home décor.
The Profile 404-X-A is perfectly suited for small theater settings and two-channel audiophile listening rooms. It utilizes some of the finest drivers and tweeters in the world: each channel features dual 4-inch Peerless HDS woofers and a Morel MDT29 1-inch hand-treated, cloth-dome tweeter housed in a vented enclosure. The speaker boasts a 65-Hz to 22-kHz frequency response and a power rating of 235 W per channel.
For consumers who desire the same level of quality from their surround sound speakers, Leon also offers the timbre-matched Profile 114-X-A Surround Sound Series. Also just 4 inches deep, the Profile 114-X-A Surrounds can be easily mounted on-wall to produce superb stereo imaging. If customers want their surround speakers to be hidden out of sight, the Profile 114i-X-A is also available for in-wall installations.
