Excitement Builds for NuVo’s Renovia Whole Home Audio System at CEDIA EXPO

September 12, 2009

NuVo has been talking about its Renovia whole home audio system for quite some time. Now, its fourth-quarter ship date is fast approaching. At CEDIA EXPO 2009, in Booth 1965, NuVo for the first time will reveal pricing and specifications for this much-anticipated, game-changing technology.

Renovia will bring whole home audio to retrofit/existing home environments like never before possible. With Renovia, the installer no longer needs to cut holes in drywall and run wire throughout the house. Instead, Renovia takes advantage of infrastructure that’s already in place: the home’s electrical wiring. Plus, in a move that will make interior designers happy, Renovia doesn’t even require in-wall controllers; in fact, a Renovia system can be installed in such a way as to be virtually invisible to the homeowner and visitors to the home! Renovia is the only system that can offer such a design-friendly capability.

Attendees can also stop by and see other upcoming NuVo products, including a server that brings internet radio, iTunes, Windows Media Player and other digital content to NuVo systems; a stunning color touch pad controller, and more! And, of course, the industry’s first (and still only) ENERGY STAR whole home audio system, Essentia E6G, will be on hand, along with NuVo’s flagship Grand Concerto system.

And let’s not forget to rock. NuVo will give away B.C. Rich Trace Warbeast electric guitars (and corresponding Guitar Hero/Rock Band controllers) each day on the show floor. To get a chance to win, attendees must stop by the NuVo booth and sign up!
