At Connected Distribution we know that trade customers want simple solutions to specify into projects, and home cinema systems seem to be a repeatable exercise. As such we have packaged together a range of home cinema systems that can cater for different sized applications, and performance price points. The NEW Earthquake Sound 5.1.2 System P10-80 is the third option to consider, for a host of high quality - but cost effective and high perfromance custom installation home cinema projects.
The Earthquake Sound 5.1.2 System P10-80, is based around the new requirement to encompass the 'Object Based Audio' formats - such as Dolby Atmos®, Auro 3D® and DTS:X® surround systems. For the in-wall elements, the Earthquake Sound 5.1.2 System P10-80 is based around Earthquake Sound's powerful and 8" high fidelity EWS-800 in-wall speakers (front left and right - plus the surround left and right), and the Earthquake Sound EWS-530C (designated centre channel). The EWS-800's and the EWS-530C's are benefit from Earthquake's 'know-how', with low mass stiff kevlar cone bodies for a very smooth, accurate and detailed sound reproduction. the higher end frequencies are dealt with subtly with silk dome NEO swiveling tweeters. Power handling is easily dealt with as the in-walls all have handling abilities of 500 watts for the 800's and 350 watts for the 530C's - meaning they can be paired with higher powered AVR's easily.
The 'elevation aspect' of the cinema platform is garnered around the highly flexible Earthquake Sound ECS-8D's, which are high quality 8" in-ceiling speakers with the capability of producing a very 'diffuse' sound-field. Perfectly matched in timbre, voicing and reproduction with the in-walls as they also benefit from Kevlar cone bodies and dual silk dome tweeters. Again, power handling is more than adequate with the ECS-8D's being able to handle again up to 450 watts.
All the in-wall and in-ceiling speakers featured here are also from Earthquake Sound's EDGELESS series of In-Wall & In-Ceiling Speakers - and are one of Earthquake Sound's most valued speaker lines.
To complete the system this System P10-80 is paired with the larger yet diminutive (considering it's power), but extremely punchy MiniMe P10-V2 sub-woofer. The MiniMe-P10-V2 iniMe has an oversized 640 watt Evolved class D amplifier has an efficiency of 90% which means that the amplifier does not get warm even in harsh and continuous operation. Earthquakes unique Class D design is distinguished by high performance and superb bass control. Even the most complex source material being reproduced accurately and articulated. The powerful Class D amplifier coupled with the patented SLAPS passive device enables MiniMe-P10-V2 to reproduce frequencies down to 20 Hz.
This punchy sub is covered in deep luxurious black piano lacquer, and being small means it can also give you the best possible chance of 'removing the elephant from the room'. In other words the potentially difficult issue of a huge invasive box in the room is somewhat more easily dealt with! Without compromising lower end performance.
So if you are after a high quality but cost effective system that you can specify time and time again - and that will constantly deliver, then look no further than the System P10-80.
Suggested AVR combinations can be: The Yamaha RX-A670, RX-A870 & RX-A1070.
