Designed for Mobile Video, Music and Game Lovers Seeking an Enhanced Portable Audio Experience
SUNNYVALE, Calif. — (BUSINESS WIRE) — January 28, 2015 — ACEMILE, a leading smart consumer electronics and IoT technology company, is introducing THEATRE BOX, the world’s first commercially available portable wireless speaker that delivers a 360-degree 3D surround sound audio experience to everyone in the room, no matter the orientation to the speaker.

THEATRE BOX has no wires and doesn’t require any apps, Internet or complicated set-up; simply pair a smartphone, tablet, laptop, gaming console or TV via Bluetooth v.4.0 and start enjoying 360-degree surround sound. An aux-in cable input can also be used to connect with an audio source.
THEATRE BOX can easily fill a 2,000 square-foot room or entire apartment with immersive 360-degree 3D surround sound, without the need for numerous speakers, costly components or cumbersome cables. With four 2-inch full range drivers and one 3-inch active bass driver, it automatically creates the optimal listening experience using dual core digital audio processing circuitry.
Additionally, the speaker features a rechargeable Lithium-Ion battery for up to 20 hours of playback (approximately three times longer than comparable speakers), 125 watts of maximum power output and enhanced audio transmission using Bluetooth with AptX.
“As music and video consumption on mobile devices continues to dramatically increase, consumers have come to expect better sound,” said ACEMILE Founder Richard Yan. “THEATRE BOX is designed specifically to exceed those expectations and create an intimate surround sound experience.”
THEATRE BOX utilizes Q3D Holophony, a new technology that uses a proprietary algorithm based on sound wave field synthesis, which gauges the audio environment and delivers continuous, layered sound waves. All layers of these sound wave “bubbles” are synthesized with the 360-degree 3D audio effect, and as the bubbles reach the listener’s ears, he or she is immersed in 360-degree 3D surround sound.
“In terms of audio reproduction and incorporating sophisticated technology into an easy-to-use speaker, the THEATRE BOX is clearly a breakthrough,” said Herbert Waltl, a Grammy™ Award winner and surround sound pioneer. “It’s a remarkable achievement.”
Conventional audio set-ups for surround sound require speakers be placed in listening positions around a room. For the optimal experience, a listener had to be located in a single spot (the sweet spot) where the sound beams from all the speakers converge. Only those located in the sweet spot are able to enjoy optimal 360-degree surround sound audio effect.
That’s all changed now.
No matter where the listener is in relation to the speaker, he or she is at the optimal listening location or “sweet spot.”
The THEATRE BOX is available to purchase online now through the ACEMILE website ( www.acemile.net) and will begin shipping to customers in February. The THEATRE BOX is available in four colors; red, white, blue and black, at a suggested retail price of $299.
