Sound United LLC have announced that several floorstanding and select center channel speakers from the Definitive Technology Demand Series and Polk Audio Legend Series are the first speaker lines in the home theater market to garner IMAX Enhanced Certification. IMAX Enhanced combines the highest-end entertainment products with IMAX digitally re-mastered 4K HDR content and DTS audio technologies to offer premium quality immersive experiences at home.
Sound United brands Denon and Marantz were among the first electronics companies to boast IMAX Enhanced certified products with models like the Marantz SR8015 and Denon AVR-X8500H. To build on the success of the program, IMAX and DTS partnered with award-winning Hollywood sound mixers and consulted with industry experts, including the engineering teams at Polk Audio and Definitive Technology, to help design the certification process for loudspeakers.
As a result of this work, the Demand Series and Legend Series loudspeaker lines from Definitive Technology and Polk Audio, respectively, are the first of a series of loudspeaker products to be certified for use with IMAX Enhanced home theaters. This collaborative milestone completes the IMAX Enhanced certified product ecosystem, bringing consumers closer to the cinema experience at home.
The Definitive Technology Demand D17, D15, D5c and Polk Audio Legend L800, L600 and L400 are IMAX Enhanced certified and available for purchase. New IMAX Enhanced certified product lines within the Sound United brand portfolio will be announced at a later date
