SOUND UNITED BRANDS POLK AUDIO & DEFINITIVE TECHNOLOGY OFFER FIRST IMAX ENHANCED CERTIFIED HOME THEATER SPEAKERS

The Polk Audio Legend Series and Definitive Technology Demand Series Loudspeakers are First IMAX Enhanced Certified Speakers for Home Theater Use

VISTA, Calif. (November 17, 2020)—Sound United LLC, parent company to Bowers & Wilkins™, Denon®, Marantz®, Polk Audio®, Definitive Technology®, Classé®, and Boston Acoustics®, today announced 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.

“Our intent in joining the loudspeaker certification program was to reproduce the signature IMAX sound without compromise. It was essential to preserve the impact and dynamics moviegoers have come to expect from IMAX, therefore, we considered sound pressure level (SPL), frequency response and the consistency of the speaker’s performance when evaluating eligibility for loudspeaker certification,” said Matt Lyons, VP of Engineering – Acoustics Product Development & Engineering at Polk Audio. “IMAX defined a specific set of frequency ranges to be used for testing, which we then ultimately measured against speaker performance. The resulting certification completes the ecosystem of IMAX Enhanced products including content, devices and loudspeakers, all calibrated to offer the level of performance IMAX demands.”

“We’ve worked closely with Sound United brands for over 20 years. The company’s longstanding reputation for innovation stretches across their brand portfolio, making them an ideal partner to bring new technologies to market,” said Bill Neighbors, Xperi Senior Vice President & General Manager, Cinema, Home, Digital Media & Streaming Solutions. “We decided Polk Audio and Definitive Technology were the ideal launch partners for the IMAX Enhanced Speaker Certification program given their heritage and expertise in both passive and powered loudspeaker development.”

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.
