Products on Display at ISE 2014
HORIZON OTO: A Powered, Ultra-Thin, Custom Soundbar
Over 10 years ago, Leon’s Horizon Series soundbar revolutionized the audiovisual experience by offering an elegant, dynamic speaker solution, handcrafted to match any TV. On display at ISE is the recently announced Horizon OTO soundbar: powered, thin, digital and custom-crafted to perfectly match any display. At the heart of the soundbar is a high-fidelity 2x50W onboard amplifier. The OTO Amp provides clean, distortion-free power and has both optical inputs (for Dolby Digital or PCM) and analog inputs to easily integrate with other components. Its rear IR jack and front panel IR receiver can tie into any control system, while the front touch panel and remote provide auxiliary control.
At less than 2-inches deep, the HzOTO is purposefully designed for slim TVs. The sleek soundbar pairs 3” aluminum cone woofers with cloth-dome tweeters to offer uncompromising, focused sound reproduction. The rear-ported design allows the speaker to develop impressive bass down to 70Hz, while an internal wireless transmitter will pair with Leon’s new wireless subwoofer receiver to easily add any Leon sub to the system.
The Horizon OTO bolsters Leon’s vision of blending art with audio by pushing the boundaries of performance and style. The cabinet is built-to-order, meticulously handcrafted from solid MDF and custom-tailored to match the exact width and finish of any display. It can be perfectly mounted on the wall or to any TV with Leon’s proprietary mounting brackets.

Media Décor Solutions
EDGE Media Frame: Leon’s EDGE Media Frame houses both the audio and video platforms, while offering the sleek look of a completely built-in, recessed unit.
