With LBL Lighting's New railtones Wireless Audio System, Adding Superb Sound to a Room Is a Snap

Company Unveils Easy-to-Install Wireless Speakers for Low-Voltage Track Lighting Systems; Seamlessly Combines Light and Sound in a Single System

CHICAGO, IL--(Marketwire - July 14, 2010) -  LBL Lighting, a Chicago-based manufacturer of premium decorative lighting, is introducing an easy way to add surround sound to any room with an innovative wireless audio system called railtones™. What makes this patent-pending sound system so unique is that its speakers mount to and are powered by LBL Lighting's Monorail low-voltage track lighting systems. Additionally, the versatile railtones system can be mounted to many of the most popular track lighting systems used throughout homes and commercial spaces today. railtones is even compatible with most six-inch recessed downlights. 

People often shy away from adding surround sound to a space because of the effort and expense involved with sound installation. In contrast, installing the railtones wireless audio system is a cinch. Beyond the initial track lighting installation, no additional holes need to be drilled, or wires strung. Rather, users simply connect the wireless speaker directly to their low-voltage track lighting system as they would any track head and then plug the wireless transmitter into almost any audio device including a computer's USB port, an iPod/iPhone or MP3 player, receiver, stereo or television. For people who already have one of LBL Lighting's popular track-lighting systems installed, adding railtones wireless speakers literally takes just seconds. And it's easy to tailor the railtones sound system to suit homes and commercial spaces of all sizes. Simply add more speakers to the low-voltage track-lighting system to fill a larger space with superior sound.

An infrared remote control lets people easily control the power and volume of each speaker individually. The system features uncompressed HD-quality audio for superb sound (1.6MBs per channel).

"We're proud to introduce railtones because it demonstrates LBL Lighting's commitment to giving people outstanding functionality and value beyond illumination," said Sean Lavin, VP of Product Design for LBL Lighting. "Our concept and design of railtones marries light and sound which enhances any environment and brings a truly holistic approach to your design. Great consideration was put into every detail of the design and development of the speakers to ensure they easily blend with our lighting designs. The result is a surround sound solution that fits in with people's busy lifestyles and their budget."

The railtones kit will include two wireless speakers, one wireless transmitter (plus power adaptor/cords) and one remote control with volume control and four pre-set equalizer options. Additional speakers and a sub-woofer can be purchased separately. 

railtones is available for $599 list price for a two speaker kit and makes a great gift. For more information on railtones, including where to purchase the product, please visit
