Epic Master Home Theater System
The Epic Master / 175 system provides a level of sonic transparency and detailed, uncolored musical sound that is unprecedented in a moderately priced home theater system. Intended for average-sized living rooms (2,100 cu. ft. or less) or small dens, bedrooms and dorm rooms, the critically acclaimed M3 bookshelf speakers anchor the Epic Midi system's main channels.
Highly praised by critics and customers alike for their transparent, detailed and neutral music reproduction, the M3s each use a powerful yet precise, 6.5-inch woofer, for greater bass authority than smaller bookshelf speakers are capable of, and a 1-inch titanium dome tweeter. These are the same drivers that the floorstanding M50 tower speakers use for bass, midrange and treble. So it's no surprise that the compact M3 presents tonal balance similar to its larger brethren. To extend the deep bass octaves for powerful orchestral music, jazz, or movie soundtracks, the EP175 powered subwoofer's 10-inch woofer and 175-watt internal power amplifier deliver tight, musical bass with excellent home-theater impact. Solid bass to frequencies below 30 Hz can be expected in typical rooms. Center and surrounds can be wall-mounted or stand-mounted.
The VP100 center channel focuses dialog and is tonally neutral, so it's quite natural on movie speech and musical vocals. The VP100 delivers a seamless blend between center, mains and surrounds, with plenty of depth and a spacious 3-dimensional soundstage. This system also delivers thrillingly detailed, neutral and transparent movie soundtrack and music playback from DVDs, CDs, and even from those amusing old LPs. The QS4 quadpolar surround speakers each use four drivers to deliver the envelopment in effects and location sounds from Dolby Digital 5.1 channel movie soundtracks as well as the ambient detail in music. Thunder, rainstorms and jungle scenes heard from the QS4s will put you safely in that environment—so complete is the 5.1-channel surround sound envelopment.
Multi-channel musical reproduction is as thrilling and enjoyable as ambient soundtrack effects via DVD-Audio or SACD discs, or even from your CDs processed through Dolby Pro LogicII. You may well re-discover new listening experiences with the Epic Master / 175 system.

What a difference a set of high quality, balanced and tonally matched speakers makes!
