If you're dying to drop $4,500 on a sweet stereo for your holiday tunage, you might want to check out the Infinity Classia, with it's 400-watt wireless subwoofer, and ceramic metal matrix technology.
Look below the cut for the written review from Attack of the Show.
What You Need to Know
- The floor standers are about 4’ tall, which is pretty large, but they do look impressive
- The subwoofer is wireless, so it can be moved somewhere inconspicuous and it's only 1.5’ high
- The only things that might be a bit big are the surround speakers; they're 1’ wide, so you'll have to wall mount them
- The cherry wood veneer gives it a nice furniture look, and you can also get it in a gloss black
- Overall, it's got some serious class
- As far as the Ceramic Metal Matrix Technology, basically, Infinity set out to make their speakers out of a material that doesn't resonate as much as traditional speakers
- Resonation is what causes the cone itself to vibrate and add unwanted noise, so Infinity's engineers combined certain materials to try and eliminate this resonation
- The Kevlar cone is on the left and Infinity's is on the right and they've managed to dampen virtually all of the cone breakup, translating to better sound
- It sounds unbelievable.
- We took it about as loud as it could go comfortably and heard no distortion at all
- It's a sweet, room-filling sound that makes you feel like you're in a movie theatre
- Certainly, this is one of the best setups we've heard ever
- $4,500 for the entire system
- If you've got a giant living room and want the best experience possible, you can't go wrong with this
