Bose and Rinnai Show ‘Cool’ New Products at PCBC
Rinnai’s LS Series of tankless water heaters and the Bose Lifestyle BUILD-INvisible home entertainment system were among the home building industry’s 15 “Coolest New Products” exhibited at last month’s PCBC in San Francisco.
PCBC’s Cool Products contest has been held for the past six years to identify products that have a certain “cool” factor that makes builders and home owners take notice. More than 600 exhibitors market their products at PCBC, which is the largest tradeshow for the housing industry on the West Coast.
The winners are selected by PCBC attendees, including builders, architects, designers and other professionals.
With a Lifestyle BUILT-INvisible system from Bose, most of the usual elements — wires, amplifiers, the module and even the speakers themselves — can be completely hidden within the framework of the home.
Rather than a menu of separate components, Bose offers home builders and remodelers complete systems packages that are pre-engineered to work together. This eliminates the need for any time-consuming analysis by the builder, and home owners can avoid having to review confusing options.
Home owners can choose where they want sound, indoors and out, with control in the palm of their hand.
Customers can enjoy a custom home theater sound whatever the floor plan. The system evaluates a room’s acoustics, including its dimensions and furniture placement, and can adjust the sound accordingly.
Premium systems store up to 340 CDs, and smart technology learns musical tastes as people listen and automatically plays the selections they want to hear.
