Marlboro NJ, 26th April 2021 – Imagine having a true immersive theater right in your living room, or turning a spare bedroom into the ultimate movie night experience. Audio Manufacturer KEF is here to bring that vision to life.
KEF is proud to announce that their Demonstration Cinema located in their KEF Music Lounge has officially obtained THXⓇ Certification. The theater, located in Marlboro New Jersey, features THX Certified Ultra loudspeakers and subwoofers, meaning the individual loudspeaker performance, as well as the listening and viewing environment of the entire room, have both been expertly verified by THX audio engineers to provide a stunning and accurate entertainment experience for all listeners.
