Home theater systems can get very expensive if you want audiophile quality speakers and components. In a large room you can pretty much choose any size speakers and be ok. In a small space like a bedroom or a conference room where surround sound is needed choosing speakers that are too large just won't work for space reasons. Gefen has announced a new set of surround sound speakers called the GefenTV Conference Room Speakers.
The speaker set consists of five different satellites providing two front and two rear channel speakers along with a center speaker. A subwoofer for improved bass is not included, but these are designed for audio quality not deep bass says the maker. Gefen says that the speakers are designed to work best with its own GefenTV Audio Processor, but they will work with any AV amp you want to use.
The part number for the five speaker set is GTV-CR-5SP and they will set you back $999. That is a crazy expensive price tag for a set of speakers that lack a sub if you ask me. The speakers each have connectors that will work with the five common types of speaker wires. The connectors support barb wires, spade lug connectors, pin connectors, and two types of banana plugs. Each of the speakers has a single 100mm low frequency driver with a 25mm voice coil. Each also has a single 25mm high frequency driver.
