Leon’s New Products Bring Art and Design to ISE 2019

Leon Speakers will be showcasing a new collection of products that combine art with audio at ISE 2019, in stand 1-N80. Leon has been mixing design with technology since its inception in 1997 and the company’s latest innovations were created to elevate the modern technology experience, pushing integrators and consumers to expand their idea of what’s possible.

Working in partnership with Sonos to develop a line of lifestyle products for their new amp, Leon’s Ente Series brings enhanced sound and Leon’s signature style to Sonos. The Ente Sound Sculpture is a wall-hanging sculptural piece that incorporates curved Baltic Birch panels, LED lighting and two channels of audio. The Ente Sound Tile features a screen-printed grill with limited-edition artwork to conceal the speakers behind it. Both models feature audio by Leon and are powered by the new SONOS AMP.

In partnership with LG and Blackdove, DAIS is a new canvas for the emerging digital art category. DAIS integrates high-performance audio from Leon, LG’s finest OLED screen and contemporary, streaming digital art from Blackdove — all encased in a sleek metal frame featuring stylized linear bar speaker grills.

Leon’s new Horizon Denza transforms the soundbar into a modern home furnishing. A soundbar and floating shelf in one, Denza is handcrafted out of Baltic Birch with internal cabinet space to house two channels of audio with additional storage space for AV components like the new SONOS AMP.

Also at the show, Leon will be displaying some of their front soundstage, architectural and subwoofer models, as well as their expanded line of outdoor audio products after their acquisition of Terra Speakers in May of 2018.
