To many, speaker cosmetics are the most important issue. To others, only the best sound will do. It’s apparent after one look and listen, both were equally important when designing era speakers. Era design was created to blend with your décor, not take or distract from it. Exotic hand polished wood veneers or high gloss black finishes are used in every pair. Our most popular system consists of 2-era Design 5 sats and D5 LCR (center); 2-era Design 4 sats for rear effect and the awesome Sub 8 that thunder out the bass frequencies yet remains tight. This is a system you’ll be proud to own no matter what you listen to.
The Design 5 system is a larger speaker than the Design 4 and is engineered for larger spaces and or higher sound pressure levels. We suggest running the D5 full range in a home theater system. They will reach down to 50 Hz a very low level of bass reproduction unheard of in a speaker this size. This allows the sub to be crossed over very low, so it becomes un-localizable or transparent. The overall result when blended with our silk dome tweeter is nothing short of breathtaking.
The Design 5 system works equally as well for stereo reproduction as it does for theater. This is a claim made by many, but delivered by few. It was with music these speakers were voiced, however, they are more than dynamic enough for home theater.
Now everyone can be happy… the decorator, the home theater enthusiast, the casual listener and most of all… the Audiophile who never has to make the “looks for sound compromise” ever again.
