London – July 15th, 2009 – Altec Lansing, a division of Plantronics Inc. and a market leader in digital audio, today announced the latest member of its acclaimed ExpressionistTM PC speaker family, the Expressionist PLUS (FX3021). This boldly imagined, compact system brings large-as-life sound to any desktop for only £79.99/ €99.99 (RRP).
“The Expressionist PLUS (FX3021) subwoofer packs tremendous punch for its tiny size,” says Adrian Bedggood, Altec Lansing’s Consumer Marketing Manager. “By streamlining the design and making the satellites angle-adjustable, we’ve made it easy for the listener to enjoy a remarkably deep, precise soundstage, no matter what distance or angle they listen from. We believe this is the best performing PC speaker on the market today in this price range.”
The Expressionist PLUS delivers great sound through its 2.1 channel subwoofer-satellite system that features a cone-shaped, bottom-loaded subwoofer. The sleek, modern looking sub utilizes a 5.25-inch, long-throw driver for authoritative bass that extends down to 50 Hz, even when placed on a desktop. The bass output is conveniently controlled within fingertip reach, allowing the user to tailor an optimum balance between sub and satellites. The entire system is driven by an impressive 33 watts of power.
The dual 2-inch full range satellites of the Expressionist PLUS complete the system, and are testament to beautiful design and simplicity. Their innovative form utilizes Altec Lansing’s Audio Alignment™ craftsmanship that precisely aligns the drivers, enclosure and electronics for natural-sounding audio performance, the way the artist intended. The satellites can be aimed in any direction to focus the soundstage for the ideal listening position, distance and height. The end result is a deep and realistic stereo image that’s exactly proportioned to the listening area.
The compact size of the Expressionist PLUS makes it a perfect accompaniment for desktop and laptop computers and other 3.5mm-connected entertainment such as an iPod®. Power and volume controls are conveniently located for easy access.Altec Lansing’s Expressionist PLUS FX3021 PC Speaker System will be available in July 2009 at consumer electronics retailers and in-store at Currys, PC World and online at Play.com from August 2009.
