Japanese high-performance loudspeaker specialist ECLIPSE has announced that it has joined forces with UK A/V retailer Richer Sounds to bring permanent demonstration 5.1 systems to a number of select stores in the south of England.
The participating outlets include Richer Sounds’ Chelsea store in London, the Southampton store in Hampshire, plus its Plymouth store in Devon. Chelsea has a permanent 5.1 system featuring TD307MK2A speakers with an ECLIPSE TD520SW subwoofer, the Plymouth store has five TD307MK2As and Southampton, ECLIPSE’s flagship Richer Sounds store, has seven TD508MK3s in its Dolby Atmos-enabled system. In addition, all three stores have TD508MK3 demonstration pairs available for two-channel listening.
ECLIPSE is working with Richer Sounds to expand the A/V demonstration scheme beyond the south for 2019, with a growth plan set to move north in targeted geographic areas.
ECLIPSE sales manager Paul Burnip commented: “With Richer Sounds’ long-standing reputation for high-quality A/V installations we are delighted that these stores have chosen to feature ECLIPSE speakers in their demonstration rooms. As a result, a much wider audience of film and multi-channel music lovers can experience how ECLIPSE speakers can deliver the full benefits of an Atmos-based system.”
In total, three ECLIPSE loudspeaker models are available to buy from the Richer Sounds group, the TD307MK2A, TD508MK3 and the TD510ZMK2. They can be ordered from any store within Richer Sounds’ 53-strong nationwide retail network or via the company’s dedicated telesales centre on.
