YG Acoustics Press Release: Carmel Loudspeakers
YG Acoustics is proud to announce the arrival of its newest model – the Carmel!
In times when competitors boast “manufacturing efficiency” which allows an all-aluminum speaker to be manufactured for under $60K, YG Acoustics makes it all seem like “yesterday’s news” by offering superior technology for one third of the price. YG Acoustics has been producing fully machined all-aluminum speakers for nearly 8 years now. Currently 4 model configurations sell for less than $40K.
At $18k, the new Carmel not only boasts a fully-CNC-machined all-aircraft-aluminum enclosure, but also offers technological features that the competition cannot, even in their much more expensive models. The Carmel not only represents the current industry standard of machining efficiency but provides the benchmark for sound quality, that YG Acoustics is famous for, in a new price category.
These include 4-axis milling technology (the competition is limited to 3 axes), precision-CNC-ground and hardened enclosure panels, and double the machining accuracy (YG Acoustics’ tolerance is +/-0.0008”, the best competitor’s only +/-0.002”).
Come experience this new technological breakthrough, which brings new meaning to the term “value” in ultra-high-end audio, at CES 2010! Photos will be released only after unveiling. Come see the unveiling of the new Carmel loudspeaker by YG Acoustics.
