A Clean You Can Trust

You can always count on BEAM for everyday cleaning and memorable messy moments.  The deep cleaning power and suction doesn’t quit over time. Year after year, BEAM removes 100% of contacted dirt and debris from every surface.

Lightweight Control

With BEAM, vacuuming is light housekeeping, not a weight-lifting exercise or obstacle course.  A lightweight hose and ergonomic tools let you move easily from task to task, level to level, floor to ceiling, and up stairs, without getting a sweaty workout from dragging around a heavy portable vacuum.

The average portable vacuum weighs 15 lbs while a BEAM hose & handle is only 7 lbs. Which would you rather lift to clean your stairs with?

The Quiet Way To Clean

Experience a quiet moment listening to the birds outside or listening to music while vacuuming.  With the motor located away from the living area, the quiet hush of airflow is all you’ll hear. Vacuum whenever you want without disturbing anyone’s activities or sleep.

BEAM central vacuum systems are quieter than most household sounds like a telephone ringing, so you won’t miss that important call while vacuuming again!

Nothing To Sneeze At.

Leave the allergies outside. Indoor air pollution is one of the most common problems for allergy sufferers.  Central vacuum systems often are recommended by allergists for removing pollutants from the home.

Research has revealed that using a central vacuum system can improve indoor air quality and significantly reduce allergy symptoms.

Whether you are looking to reduce energy costs, increase comfort or manage light control solutions, Lutron products offer the flexibility you need with the energy savings you want.

Save Energy

Today, energy efficiency is an essential element of every home and business. Lutron has been providing energy-saving light control solutions for more than fifty years. When considering your options, keep in mind that Lutron dimming saves energy without sacrificing style or convenience.

Enhance Comfort & Convenience 

Your home and your workplace should be designed to complement your needs. As your needs change throughout the day, your lighting should adapt as well; bright to read a book, but dim for computer use. Whether you are at home or at work, Lutron solutions provide convenient access to light control, creating a comfortable atmosphere to support your activities throughout the day.

Increase Productivity

Most commercial spaces are over-lit, leading to wasted energy usage. But over-lit spaces can also affect the productivity of employees. Too much daylight or electric light can make even the most fundamental tasks, such as computer work, uncomfortable and difficult to perform. By incorporating lighting based on task performance and providing personal control of lighting and shading, commercial spaces can realize measurable effects on employee productivity and motivation. In addition, employees typically dim the lights when given personal control, further increasing energy savings.

Improve Safety & Security

If safety is a priority, Lutron solutions can provide properly lit spaces at any time of day or night. Whether you want to create a safe pathway from the car at night, make a space look occupied while away, or integrate light, shade, and temperature controls to fire alarm and security systems, reliable Lutron solutions help ensure safety and security in both residential and commercial settings.

in 1946 when Paul W. Klipsch, genius, madman and maverick, designed and hand-built the legendary Klipschorn® speaker with the goal of bringing live music into his living room. He was an American audio pioneer, a true eccentric and a proud member of the engineering and science hall of fame. He gave rise to speaker technologies that would forever impact generations of music lovers. His passion enabled theirs.

Over time, Klipsch speakers have become the stuff of legends. People swear by our breakthroughs in modern acoustics, citing something akin to a religious experience with every listen.

The philosophy behind the unique Marantz sound

We know that true hi-fi is about being able to reproduce the magic of a performance. It’s about experiencing music just as the artist intended, even in the cinema. It is music that delivers the ecstasy and agony of a film’s story. To Marantz, perfect specifications and technical accomplishment count for nothing unless a product can unlock the power, the excitement and the emotion of music.

Our heritage of technical excellence means we can create components with the ability to communicate the scale, timbre, pitch and dynamics in fact, the very essence of a recording.

Music is enchanting, and we strive to ensure that the carrier of the music looks and feels as good as it sounds. Every component we produce is technically and cosmetically designed to complement the lifestyle of the listener.

We pride ourselves on applying these principles to all of our products. Each and every one of our home entertainment components is capable of reproducing the purest, most realistic music in your home.

We know that true hi-fi is about being able to reproduce the magic of a performance – it’s about experiencing music just as the artist intended.

Because music matters!

“Since the founding of Polk in 1972, it’s been our mission to craft high quality, great sounding speakers that are accessible to everyone. For the people of Polk, designing and building authentic audio solutions is our true passion.”

In the beginning, there was Matt Polk, George Klopfer and Sandy Gross. They popped out of college in the early seventies with top-shelf physics and mechanical engineering degrees. They knew about stuff like The Haas Effect, and how Phase Distortion Synthesis affected audio signals, and at least three definitions of the word “amplitude.” But all they really wanted to do was listen to music at home.

At the time, options for home audio were sort of limited. Asian brands dominated a transistor radio world. Home-grown “boutique” builders of audio equipment were few and far between in the US. What they made was rough, expensive and impractical.

Matt, George and Sandy, no strangers to the concert arena, wanted that same great concert sound in their homes. But they didn’t want to spend whole paychecks to achieve it, and they didn’t want to clutter up their living rooms with loudspeakers the size of refrigerators, as was the current fashion. So they set about utilizing their various skills – audio engineering, manufacturing, promotion, and their “golden ears” – to design and build a loudspeaker that not only sounded better than what was available at the time, but was more practical.

It came together with their own hands in a ramshackle Victorian rooming house just outside of Baltimore city. It went through prototype after prototype. Slowly, as they assembled a team of skilled friends to help (many of whom still work here), they also assembled a loudspeaker that performed beyond anyone’s expectations. These new loudspeakers solved contemporary problems of clarity, depth and realism with organic technology based on real science, not tricks. The new loudspeaker would reproduce recorded sound with a higher level of lifelike detail and spaciousness. The new loudspeaker would not overwhelm anyone’s living room. And best of all, not cost a fortune.

The Monitor Series, first introduced in 1972, changed the home audio paradigm.

Still just a bunch of perfectly normal audiophiles.

Today, Polk remains a home-grown success story. As the largest audio brand of DEI Holdings, Polk is still proudly based in Baltimore, right where we started. Our engineers and designers now hold more than 65 patents for pioneering advances in audio design and technology. These innovations have influenced the audio industry many times over.

When you visit our Baltimore headquarters, you’ll meet sales people, service reps, engineers and technicians who also happen to be musicians (and musical instrument designers), audiophiles (and car-audio competition winners), home theater buffs, tube-equipment fanatics (still!) and even the odd vinyl LP collector. You’ll meet professionals who plug in their instruments and throw down some self-penned tunes during meeting breaks, and others who could teach courses on music theory or the physics of transducers. At Polk, music is still our passion and designing practical audio solutions that deliver lifelike performance is our mission.

We invite you to get involved: sign in, join us, chat with us, and get to know Polk. We’re here to have fun, and to enjoy great sound all around; from your basement playroom or the gym, to your home theater or video game setup, to your outdoor deck, your office, and even in your car or boat! Welcome to the great-sounding world of Polk!

“Polk is an American original, crafting audio experiences that deliver our iconic, engaging, authentic sound since 1972.”

Nest_Logo

We’re Nest. We reinvent things.

We take the unloved products in your home and make simple, beautiful, thoughtful things.  We didn’t think thermostats mattered either. Until we found out they control half of your home’s energy. That’s more than appliances, lighting, TVs, computers and stereos combined.

THE PROBLEM

If your thermostat isn’t programmed, you could be wasting around $173 a year. But many of us don’t program our thermostats – they’re just too complicated. So we made it simple.

Nest saves energy. Automatically. All you need to do is change the temperature for a few days to teach Nest. After that Nest Sense™ learns about you and your home and starts activating features to save you more energy.
