THX Approved components endure application specific THX laboratory testing to predict their performance when used in actual consumer products. Using THX Approved components accelerates product development and time to market while minimizing the testing costs and engineering cycles necessary to achieve THX product certification.
Initial ODM partners of the "Approved by THX" program include Claridy Audio (whose reputation for building award winning products for their OEMs across all audio categories spans 20 years), StreamUnlimited (a technology powerhouse in the field of IoT and streaming audio multi-room solutions) and Zylux (industry leader in a wide range of home theater audio products). Claridy Audio will produce loudspeakers, starting with a powerful subwoofer designed specifically for Outlaw, the Ultra-X-13. This will be the first Subwoofer built using THX Approved drivers and will debut at CES 2017 in Las Vegas. StreamUnlimited is completing final testing for its Stream810 module, a high-end streaming device for flagship audio products, including low power portable units. Zylux plans to develop a new product with THX Approved components later this year.
"Partnering with THX gives our customers a way into the world of THX Certified products that is efficient and affordable," says Robert Wills, Claridy Audio President. "We understand the difficulties our customers face with meeting stringent THX specifications. We are excited to provide THX Approved components and utilize our world class engineering skills and methodology to ensure the products will meet THX specification before a sample is made. Abridging the product development process from conception to market implementation is a critical business component for success and this is why in partnering with THX, Claridy Audio is TOPS - 'The One Pass Solution' - for our customer's needs."
