"The Epson Ensemble HD Home Cinema System represents a significant milestone for this industry not just because of the incredible multimedia experience it delivers at these price points, but more importantly because of the doors it will open to an entirely new and dramatically broader range of consumers," said Rajeev Mishra, director, New Ventures Group, Epson America. "There's an enormous and ever-growing base of cinema fans and HD-inspired consumers entering the market today who have no idea that such a powerful yet visually unobtrusive home entertainment solution is about to fall within their grasp. So we're obviously very excited to be introducing these customers to this solution and helping them discover entirely new possibilities."
"This product is the first of its kind and is a real win-win for both consumers and dealers," said Peter Tribeman, president and CEO, Atlantic Technology. "Consumers get a complete, high performance cinema experience at an affordable price; dealers can still make a profit on the sale, the system installs quickly, and the product will expand their market."
The Epson Ensemble HD Home Cinema System will begin shipping to dealers nationwide in November with a suggested retail price of $6,999 for the 1080p system, and $4,999 for the 720p version.
