Leon Delivers High-Fidelity Music and Adjustable LED Lighting to Outdoor Spaces with LuminSound Bollard Outdoor Speakers

Leon’s newest member of its popular Terra LuminSound TrLs50 collection, the 32-inch-tall Terra LuminSound Bollard rises above the landscape. 

Ann Arbor, MI – Building off its popular Terra LuminSound outdoor speaker portfolio, Leon Speakers adds a new taller model to the line. The Terra LuminSound Bollard speaker features the same handcrafted components and built-in low-voltage lighting as the shorter landscape version but stands taller, thanks to a 21-inch aircraft-grade aluminum base. At an overall height of 32 inches and available with both halo and adjustable pathway lighting, the Terra LuminSound Bollard beautifully defines and enhances any outdoor residential or commercial environment.

“As we all continue spending more time outside, Leon wants to give integrators more design options that add audiovisual ambiance to a wide range of exterior settings,” says Noah Kaplan, Leon Speakers Founder and President. “Featuring premium customizable powder coat finishes, the Terra LuminSound Bollard adds exceptional sound and style to pathways, rooftops, outdoor kitchens and more.”

Incorporating audio and lighting in one compact, IP67-rated waterproof enclosure, the Terra LuminSound Bollard delivers high-fidelity sound from a sleek, customizable package designed and built to withstand even the harshest of climates. It’s available with commercial-grade LED lighting that can be adjusted upward or downward to illuminate pathways, landscaping and architectural details. The speakers blend discreetly into a variety of regional landscapes thanks to a choice of seven different finishes—Black, Satin White, Light Sand, Hammertone Silver, Slate Grey, Dark Bronze and Satin Terracotta. Hardscape mounting is the preferred installation method for the Bollard model, and like all Terra products, it is handcrafted in the USA and comes with a limited lifetime warranty. The Terra LuminSound Bollard is sold individually, starting at a suggested retail price of $1,900 without lighting and $2,000 with lighting.

Leon Speakers Streamlines Installation of Videoconferencing Equipment with Tonecase FIT Universal and Horizon Interactive Fit Mounting Solutions

Leon delivers design-friendly AV solutions to corporate environments with two custom options that beautifully conceal videoconferencing systems for optimal functionality. 

Ann Arbor, MI – Leon Speakers is helping systems integrators strengthen their presence and bring more value to their corporate clients by offering AV storage solutions custom-designed for easy and beautifully installed video conferencing equipment. With more and more companies adopting hybrid work strategies, thoughtfully integrated video conferencing equipment has become crucial to effective communication and collaboration. Leon’s Tonecase Fit Universal (TcFIT-U) and Horizon Fit Interactive (HiFIT) fulfill this need. Both of these handcrafted units, which mount discreetly to the bottom of a display, are designed to house small format video conferencing cameras and all-in-one video conferencing devices from leading manufacturers including Bose, Logitech, Crestron, and others. Featuring a signature Leon custom grille built to match the exact width of a display, the TcFIT-U and HiFIT blend into the design and décor of corporate conference rooms, executive offices and other commercial environments. 

“Building on the success of our TcFIT, we wanted to provide AV integrators with a design solution that could add style to any video conferencing system without any compromise of functionality,” says Noah Kaplan, Leon Founder and President. “It has always been our vision to blend design with technology, and our TcFIT-U and HiFIT expand this vision to commercial settings.” 

TcFIT-U Customized for Leading Video Conferencing Systems
Developed with versatility in mind, TcFIT-U is available in several models to accommodate a choice of videoconferencing solutions from Bose, Logitech, Crestron, and others. It mounts directly to any display up to 98” diagonal using one of Leon’s undermount brackets, and the entire unit is covered with a custom-width fabric grille that comes standard in black with the option to upgrade to a collection of designer grille fabrics. The TcFIT-U can be integrated with Leon’s Edge Media Frame, a product that encases a TV and soundbar or TcFIT-U with a contemporary frame that is available in a selection of wood and metallic finishes. 

Horizon Interactive FIT Comes with Hi-Fi Speakers
Leon’s Horizon Interactive FIT (HIFIT) provides attractive, functional storage space for all the necessary videoconferencing components such as web cams, mini PCs, and more. High-fidelity speakers are built into the unit which is outfitted with a grille handcrafted to match the width of a display and a custom cut-out for a video conferencing camera. Mounted below the display, the Horizon Interactive FIT creates a unified design aesthetic. The HIFIT features two (2) 4″ woofers and two (2) 28mm tweeters which flank an internal storage area. Fully customizable, HIFIT is only 2.75” deep and available in two models: HIFIT44UX to accommodate TVs up to 65” diagonal and HIFIT44UX-OS for screens up to 90” diagonal.

Leon Speakers’ FrameBar Soundbar Adds High-Fidelity Multi-Channel Audio to Samsung’s The Frame Display

FrameBar from Leon comes in two models and four finishes to blend in seamlessly with The Frame TV.

Ann Arbor, MI While consumers love how Samsung’s The Frame looks more like an art piece than a TV, integrators have often struggled with how to add high-end audio to the installation. Leading soundbar manufacturer Leon Speakers puts an end to the design dilemma with FrameBar, a discreet, ultra-thin soundbar designed to match the width and finish of The Frame TV, providing enhanced audio and an unobtrusive aesthetic.   

“Our dealers have been asking us to design an audio solution for The Frame since it first hit the market and we’re excited to offer a soundbar that was exclusively designed to pair with it,” says Noah Kaplan, Leon Founder and President. “We know that the appeal of The Frame TV is that it doesn’t look like a TV at all, so it was important to our design team to give FrameBar an ultra-modern look with multiple finish options while also keeping the design as minimalistic as possible.”

FrameBar is available in 2 models and is built to match the exact width of any model of The Frame TV 43” and larger. A variation of Leon’s popular HzUT soundbar, FrameBar features 2.5” audiophile-grade woofers and 22mm cloth-dome tweeters in an ultra-thin cabinet only 2.375” deep that mounts flush to the wall. FrameBar comes in a variety of finishes to match The Frame finishes offered by Samsung by color and year released, and it features flat moulding with an exposed cabinet edge on the front of the soundbar. While FrameBar ships standard with a black fabric grille cloth, there is the option to upgrade to a collection of designer grille fabrics to give the installation an even more customized look.

Leon Speakers Helps Systems Integrators Mesh Art and Audio in Residential and Commercial Spaces with the Ente SoundTile

Select artwork screen printed on Leon’s collection of Ente SoundTile speaker grilles beautifully conceals on-wall speakers. 

Ann Arbor, MI – As a company with strong roots in the arts, Leon is always looking for innovative ways to add an artistic twist to high-fidelity loudspeakers and soundbars. Leon demonstrates the natural harmony that exists between fine art and immersive audio with its design-forward Ente SoundTiles. This unique product transforms a traditional stereo system into a modern piece of wall art, seamlessly blending art and audio into residential and commercial environments. Each Ente SoundTile conceals two channels of reference-grade audio and an amplifier behind a perforated metal speaker grille that is screen printed with select artwork.

The SoundTiles can be arranged in a variety of ways; as a single piece of art, a pair of art prints, or as a triptych. A single tile also comes in two size options, the original 36” x 36” square or a new size format, a 12” wide by 36” tall rectangular tile.

New to the Ente SoundTile is the latest Artist Edition collection by visual artist Chris Saunders. Commissioned for Leon’s 25th Anniversary, the Soundwave Series features four unique pieces by Saunders—each representing a different genre of music through a visual exploration of symmetry and sound.

“Our growing collection of Ente SoundTiles reflects Leon’s support of up-and-coming artists from around the globe and the prosperity of systems integrators. It brings two very different professions together, culminating in a product that enhances any home or business environment with two diverse yet complementary artforms,” says Noah Kaplan, Leon Speakers founder and president. “Ente SoundTile pushes the boundaries, offering the integration community a unique way to add audio and art to any space, and effectively adding one more design-forward option for their clients.”

Focus, Connect and Inspire with Cove. Leon Speakers Unveils a Brand-New Desktop Innovation That Will Elevate Your Screen Time.

Designed to meet the unique demands of today’s hybrid workforce, Cove by Leon establishes a flattering, efficient, and productive work environment. Offering dimmable lighting, sound dampening and a modern sleek design, Cove helps you look, sound and feel your best wherever you are.

Ann Arbor, MIJanuary 27, 2023 – For 25 years, Leon Speakers has built a reputation for developing elegant and innovative ways of integrating audio and technology through attentive design—attracting renowned clients from the iconic Muscle Shoals Sound Studio and actor Adrian Grenier, to global Fortune 500 companies like Slack Technologies.

This year at ISE 2023, Leon brings a fresh perspective to its extensive line, showcasing Cove by Leon: a revolutionary new desktop accessory that increases privacy, improves focus, and creates a more professional web conferencing space for any work environment.

Cove’s adjustable diffused lighting and sound-dampening felt interior are meticulously designed to improve productivity and privacy while reducing ambient noise and eye strain—all under the ultra-flattering glow of webcam-friendly lighting. Its personalizable magnetic steel surface also allows easy access to notes, calendars, and other personal items without decreasing desk space. Cove is built to house any tablet, laptop, or monitor up to 27 inches, including the new Apple Studio Display.

Cove can be used in myriad work environments—at home, in the office and elsewhere, giving employers and their employees a way to maintain a professional look and feel in any space. In keeping with Leon’s strong roots in the arts and design, Cove looks as good as it performs, making it an ideal solution for corporations to provide to their workforce. 

The launch of Cove comes at an ideal time. New research has shown that 63% of high-growth companies have implemented hybrid work models. Whether employees are working from home, sharing office space, or utilizing a coworking environment, Cove helps businesses benefit from this trend with a professional and functional workspace solution. 

“Blending design with technology has been our passion at Leon for 25 years,” says Leon founder and president Noah Kaplan. “So, when we started seeing post-pandemic work environment changes, we felt like we could use our industry expertise and experiences as creators ourselves to take a new approach to the term ‘audiovisual.’ Cove’s design makes marked improvements in our daily workflow, communication and the way we feel on-screen and at the end of the workday.”

Natural LED bias backlighting by American Lighting comes with remote-adjustable color temperature and brightness, while Cove’s antimicrobial recycled TURF felt interior reduces ambient noise and elevates privacy, even in a crowded room. Cove can be purchased as a standalone desk accessory, starting at $695 MSRP, in a choice of three modern colors: Almond, Black and Slate Gray. Users can customize this base unit with their choice of technology. Or, they can equip Cove with one of Leon’s technology packages: Content Creator, which includes a Logitech Streamcam Webcam and a Shure MV7 microphone and tripod, or Homebase, which comes with a Logitech Brio Ultra HD Webcam. Cove’s precision-engineered steel is manufactured in the USA, and its sustainably sourced engineered Baltic Birch shelf is finished in Leon’s own Michigan-based workshop.
