Noise Free America
For immediate release
Madison: Pyramat Furniture has won this month’s Noisy Dozen award from Noise Free America for manufacturing “wireless audio furniture,” otherwise known as “boom chairs.” Because of Pyramat, boom car rockers can now blast away effortlessly, within the comfort of their living room.
Pyramat describes their “sound furniture” as “an awesome high-fi audio system and subwoofer in your living room” that makes it possible to avoid “huge speakers ruining their decor.” Pyramat’s “ergonomically designed sound furniture enables users to feel all of the action from video games to movies, and to feel audio tracks from music. Using Audio Response Technology (ARX), the Sound Rockers let you feel the on-screen action. ARX transfers low frequency sound through a subwoofer, creating a powerful rumbling bass that puts the player into the action. Sound Rockers are compatible with all game consoles, and audio visual devices such as a TV, VCR, DVD, or MP3 player.”
Pyramat continues: “Boom Multimedia Chairs and Furniture allows you to Hear the Sound and Feel the Excitement! You’ll experience every crash, smash, bang, and roar while enjoying your favorite music, game, or movie! The Boom Line is extremely versatile and stands up against vigorous gameplay and long-term use. BOOM!”
Ted Rueter, Noise Free America’s director, commented that “the boom car culture has now come to the living room. Now lovers of loud music can sit in their chair all day long, pumping up the volume, playing with their subwoofers, and feeling the sound. These boys make noise all day long. I feel sorry for anyone near anyone with a Neighbors, beware!”
“Pyramat Furniture,” continued Rueter, “is part of America’s growing noise-industrial complex. Many sectors of the American economy are now based on making noise: NASCAR, motorcycles, stereo manufacturers, car alarms, and the the leaf blower industry. It is time that the American economy turns away from making noise as a source of profit.”
