We brought you the news of the first loudspeakers from new brand PerListen Audio, as they launched last month at the Virtual CES. Now they have announced their intention to develop and bring to market a full line of THX® Certified Dominus loudspeakers, bridging the gap between large home theatre speakers and those used in movie theatres worldwide.

PerListen Audio are the first audio company to include THX Certified Dominus speakers in its product line.

“From distortion-free sonics to overall impact, Dominus is a remarkable engineering achievement,” said Dan Roemer, chief executive officer of PerListen Audio. “It’s truly a privilege to work with THX on its home theater technology. PerListen Audio is the first company to offer the demonstrable benefits of Dominus to demanding music and movie lovers across the globe.”

Large Home Cinemas

Dominus is the newest and the largest performance class of THX Certification, meant to bridge the gap between large home theatre speakers and those used in commercial movie theatres and exhibits. Home theatre owners with rooms up to 184 cubic meters of space and up to a 6-meter viewing distance (or up to 6500 cubic feet and up to 20 feet, respectively) can fill their entertainment space with the audio quality they expect from THX Certified products.

“We are thrilled to partner with PerListen, the pioneer in this space, to bring cinematic audio to home theaters. We developed the THX Certified Dominus performance class to fill even the most extensive home theaters with sound. Since we’re THX, these new speakers need to be more than just loud,” said Peter Vasay, general manager and senior vice president, THX home theatre division. “During our rigorous testing process, we pay special attention to distortion levels at high volumes. With Dominus, we push this to the extreme to ensure the best output for hearing content as close as possible to the original creation.”

Minimum Distortion

Specifically, for the THX Dominus testing, these speakers are subjected to 120 dB sound pressure levels where they must keep distortion to a minimum. Dominus speakers must also be sensitive enough to reach the cinematic THX Reference Level with THX Certified Dominus, and certain THX Certified Ultra power amplifiers. The 92 dB sensitivity requirement for THX Certified Dominus loudspeakers is the most sensitive of any THX loudspeaker category.

Full Range Of Speakers

PerListen Audio debuted THX Certified Dominus technology in its two CES 2021 introductions — the flagship tower speaker, S7t, and D212s subwoofer, and an additional eight models that will be introduced to the North American market in Q2 2021.
