Earthquake Adds Another Weapon of Mass Destruction to It’s Amplifier Artillery

Las Vegas, NV– Nova Audio by Earthquake Sound, adds to the success of Cinénova amplifiers that was found early on with it’s award winning Cinénova Grande 3 and 5-channel amps. This legacy of hard core amplifiers is carried into 2005 with an all new Cinénova still packing the serious watts and at ridiculously low and high impedances the New Cinénova Grande will offer 7-Channels of amplification and will be combined with all the nooks and crannies of the previous models.

We really believe that our electronics carry a strong yet subtle appearance that easily blends with audio racks or even living rooms. All the components feature the minimum in the way of buttons plus solid 4mm brushed aluminum front panels. These not only give the products a beautiful appearance and feel, but also ensure a very stable construction, further enhancing sound quality.

The big difference between the new Cinénova Grande-7 amp is that the previous models are five channel and three channel limiting the potential of a serious enthusiasts dream. Now with the 7-Channel, the possibilities have been expanded to the 7.1 surround, multiple subs, towers or what ever it is an installer or consumer may desire. With the use of two of these amps, you could literally open your own theater and charge people at the door.

Massive toroidal transformers and high-grade capacitors The Cinénova 7 features over specified toroidal transformers and high-grade capacitors for extra stability and large reserves of power. As a result, there's always enough current to keep a tight 'grip' on speakers. Even the most demanding transient peaks are reproduced with life-like accuracy and realistic dynamics. Just one of the factors which distinguishes an excellent amplifier from merely a good one.

And icing the cake is that we only use the best connections, like XLR and banana clip connectors to ensure that there is always an excellent flow of current and sound is reproduced in its purest form.

Earthquake to Re-release the Titan High Fidelity Home Theater Package

Las Vegas, NV– Nova Audio by Earthquake Sound, manufacturer of high-end Home audio subwoofers, amplifiers and more steps it up in 2005 with an over the top set of towers and a center channel that play as smooth as the wind through you hair. With each tower’s five drivers and the centers seven drivers, this battalion of sound surrounds its audience  and prepares to hold all listeners captive while it slowly breaks down each level of your listening senses.

Nova’s full spectrum 2005 Titan surround speakers and center channel take Nova’s ground breaking passive technology and infamous power to new levels of performance and functionality.The sleek, distinctively styled towers utilize a fully passive enclosure ensuring accurate and fast response, incorporating five drivers which can be separately amplified (biampable). Each driver, excluding the tweeter, is made with Nova’s new silk coated pulp mix for low mass movement and ultimate accuracy. Included in each tower is a 1.5" silk dome tweeter, a 5.25" silk coated high precision mid-range, a silk coated tight eight inch mid-bass driver, two silk coated high power 12" drivers and a 15" patented SLAPS passive radiator. Mounted on the back of the towers are the amplification terminals which are hooked upto the giant cross over that allows the towers to be either powered as a whole or biampable.

Titan’s center channel remains a silhouette in the dark yet sparks dramatic life into the vocals of any movie or sound track when called to work. This 124lb piece of art lives up to its appearance by offering seven drivers that enhance and amplify vocal and mid-range sounds to their max potential, allowing your mind to believe it may have traveled to the very place that the sound originated from. Topping the ridge of the center channel are three 1.5" silk dome tweeters and the highest precision and supporting underneath are four 5.25" mid-range drivers reproducing in perfect harmony all that you mind can process.

Internally and externally, the towers combine modern technology with good old fashioned hand crafted reliability. The cabinet is embraced with interlocking machine grooved panels that aid in the excellent damping and elimination of vibrations and colorization. Externally, the finish is accomplished by wrapping 16 layers of steam bent cherry wood around the giant skeleton and topping it with a fine black lacquer crown that grips the two upper level drivers. The center channel with its oval shaped and aero dynamic cabinetry remains still yet appears to be in warp speed as it plays hard yet so effortlessly.

Both models offer an outstanding combination of superb sound, ease of use and operational flexibility, and their striking appearance makes them ideal for design-conscious consumers who want to integrate a true high-performance surround sound into a stylish and elegant home. Their massive size gives them a monumental appearance that not only puts out phenomenal sound but will put on a visual show that will have any one who crosses their path gazing in awe.
