Monoprice® Updates Home Theater Category With Four Great-Sounding Audio Offerings

E-Tailer Continues to Deliver Premium Audio at Fair Prices With New Retro Hybrid Tube Amp, Two Bookshelf Speaker Lines and an Upgraded 5.1 Home Theater System

RANCHO CUCAMONGA, CA--(Marketwired - October 20, 2015) - Continuing its dedication to engineering best-in-class, low-cost audio products, Monoprice, a leading provider of high-quality and affordably priced consumer electronics and accessories, announced today the addition of its first retro Retro Hybrid Tube Amp with Bluetooth®, a new line of Select Series Bookshelf Speakers, a new collection of Bluetooth Bookshelf Speakers, and an upgraded Select 5.1 Channel Home Theater Satellite Speakers and Subwoofer system to its growing audio category. Staying true to its belief that excellent audio shouldn't break the bank, Monoprice built each product to offer sleek designs and amazing sound quality at surprisingly low price points rarely seen in high performance audio.

"While delivering superior sound quality is the goal of any home audio system, the reality is that budgets and aesthetics often force consumers to make compromises in sound performance. At Monoprice, you don't have to make sacrifices as our offerings deliver great sound, beautiful aesthetics and desirable technologies at incredibly low prices," said Bernard Luthi, president of Monoprice. "Our team of audio experts and sound engineers spend countless hours perfecting each speaker to ensure they meet our high standards of product excellence. As a trusted destination for consumer technology, we remain committed to developing audio solutions that offer the best sound at price points accessible for everyone."

Following a recent refresh of its headphone category, Monoprice's newest audio offerings consist of the $199.99 Retro Bluetooth Stereo Hybrid Tube Amp System; $59.99 and $99.99 Select Series Bookshelf Speakers; $229.99 Bluetooth Bookshelf Speakers with USB; and $199.99 Select 5.1 Channel Home Theater Satellite Speakers and Subwoofer system.

Retro Bluetooth Stereo Hybrid Tube Amp System ($199.99):

The system features a modern-meets-retro tube amp with a sophisticated piano black and chrome design. Blending classic looks with modern streaming capabilities, the tube amp allows users to pair their music and listen wirelessly with its built-in Bluetooth connection. It also adds depth and warmth to a typically sterile digital listening experience and significantly improves quality of sound, making music sound less compressed and processed. For under $200, the system also consists of two 4-inch, 2-way chamfered Select Series speakers and two 10 foot braided 14AWG speaker cables. The tube amp is available as a standalone component for $149.99.

Select Series Bookshelf Speakers ($59.99, $99.99):

These loudspeakers featuring a modern design produce a large soundstage with acoustic transparency and sonic clarity. Whether used as stereo speakers or part of a multi-channel 5.1 or 7.1 home theater system, the Select Series Bookshelf Speakers deliver a wide frequency response and sophisticated sound quality regardless of the source. Four- and 5-inch bass drivers deliver warm yet punchy bass, and 1-inch silk dome tweeters produce well-defined high frequencies with even the lowest listening level vocals coming off pronounced and intelligible.

Bluetooth Bookshelf Speakers with USB ($229.99):

These 200-watt, compact yet versatile Bluetooth desktop speakers produce powerful, high performance sound without the need for a subwoofer. Listeners will enjoy crystal clear wireless streaming audio through PC, Mac, CD, DVD players and mobile devices thanks to a built-in 24-bit digital-to-audio convertor with a resolution up to 96kHz. A 6.5-inch driver and 1-inch silk dome tweeter generates a smooth frequency response that sounds natural listening to all genres of music with 200 watts of power. An active crossover ensures a smooth fade between highs and lows, and two dual RCA inputs allow for a versatile arrangement of audio sources. The system comes with an included wireless remote to select sources, adjust volume, bass and treble, and control playback from Bluetooth-enabled devices.

Select 5.1 Channel Home Theater Satellite Speakers and Subwoofer ($199.99):

Those who appreciate the current Premium 5.1 Channel Home Theater System with Subwoofer (10565) will fall in love all over again with Monoprice's upgraded Select 5.1 Channel Home Theater Satellite Speakers and Subwoofer-a refreshed system boasting new features and functionality with incredible sound quality. Replacing the original 10565, the system includes five, 3-inch, two-way satellite speakers and an 8-inch, 200-watt subwoofer to deliver deep and rich high-fidelity music for extensive listening. High frequencies are crisp while midrange and vocals are pronounced and defined. Input configurations include a stereo line, LFE mono and speaker level.

In the coming weeks, Monoprice will launch a new series of In-Wall Speakers, consisting of eight carbon fiber driver options, for audio enthusiasts and installers. For more information on the newest additions to Monoprice's audio category, please visit Monoprice.com.
