High above the Vegas Strip in the Venetian Hotel during CES 2012, we found audio company CAT, or California Audio Technology. They are a high-end consumer audio company that has been in business for 22 years and recognizes that while there may be a decline in the economy, people aren’t skimping out on good, professional quality audio components for their homes or recreational vehicles.
What makes these audio products different from the rest in their market is the top of the line materials used in the components. President and Co-founder Brian Barr jumped into details and said that their loudspeaker enclosures are made of Corian, Avanite, stainless steel, concrete, marble and/or granite. These are the same materials you’d find in the aerospace industry or even in a race car. For the actual speaker components, these 120 pound beasts boast an high-grade aluminum cone, the largest neodymium magnet on the back of the driver and a solid copper faceplug, perfect for dissipating heat.
