From the Manufacturer

Infinity TSS-800 - Precision Sound at an Affordable Price

Advancing the Science of Sound for 40 Years
Are you passionate about good sound? Infinity is. With groundbreaking technologies, revolutionary materials and advanced manufacturing techniques, Infinity loudspeakers have set new standards for performance, simplicity and style for 40 years. Since Infinity was founded in a California garage in 1968 by engineers passionate about music, its critically acclaimed loudspeakers and design leadership have remained unchallenged. Through the years, state-of-the-art engineering facilities and unmatched resources have allowed Infinity manufacturers to design and develop innovative loudspeakers and loudspeaker technologies that push the limits of accurate sound reproduction.


Hear Your Music and Movies the Way the Artist Intended

Metal Matrix Diaphragms™ (MMD®) for Precise Sound
A well-engineered loudspeaker should be like a window into an artist’s soul, meaning that you hear exactly what they intended without changes or alterations. Breakthrough MMD speaker technology does just that with incredibly stiff yet incredibly lightweight materials. The TSS-800’s 3-1/2" MMD midrange driver and 3/4" tweeter sandwich ceramic material on either side of an aluminum cone. This material is strong enough to hold its shape when moving rapidly, but light enough to accurately start and stop with your music or movie.

By being so strong, MMD is able to reduce distortions caused by the cone bending or flexing. This keeps your music or movie from sounding odd or unnatural. And when you compare MMD to the cone materials used in other competitive systems, you will really see MMD’s advantage. MMD is actually more than 200 times stronger than the common polypropylene cones used in competitive systems. It’s even 3 times stronger than titanium. Pair this strength with MMD’s incredibly light weight, which is actually 30% lighter than titanium, and MMD is able to deliver all the subtle details that make for an extraordinary listening experience. The TSS-800 comes equipped with a center channel speaker that has a second 3-1/2" midrange driver for clearer, richer dialogue. And when it comes to bass, Infinity’s MMD speaker material is so well engineered that they use it for the TSS-800’s 10”, 150-Watt powered subwoofer. This creates a system with deep, accurate bass that is perfectly voiced matched. Bring it all together, and you will enjoy your music and movies with the exact sounds that the musicians and moviemakers intended--and that only Infinity speaker systems can deliver.

MMD technology is engineered to be
both extremely rigid and light-weight


Low-Resonance Enclosures Provide Sonic Stabilization
A poorly designed speaker enclosure can actually resonate and add its own “sound” to your music. That kind of speaker is like a guitar; a guitarist may use multiple guitars because they all resonate differently, each producing its own unique sound. While this variation is important for a classical guitarist, it isn’t good for a loudspeaker. Resonance can really change a speaker’s overall tonal balance and alter the sound of the recording that it plays.

Using a special tool called a scanning laser vibrometer, Infinity is able to pin-point the location for internal bracing on the TSS-800, ensuring the brushed aluminum enclosures are so rigid that they do not vibrate or resonate. This design philosophy also extends to the powered subwoofer enclosure. So with the TSS-800, all you hear is your music and movies--exactly the way you deserve to hear them.



Exceptional Sound Anywhere in the Room

Superior Engineering Resources Guarantee a Quality Listening Experience
Many loudspeaker manufacturers are actually loudspeaker assemblers, buying parts off the shelf from different companies with the goal of assembling them into a final product. While this system might help to keep costs down, it does very little to guarantee how the speakers are going to sound. Infinity manufacturers design, engineer and build all parts of the loudspeaker. This integrated process allows Infinity to control all aspects of speaker creation, and results in smoothly engineered loudspeaker systems that sound great in any room.

Optimized to Ensure Great Sound, No Matter Where You Sit
The place where you sit in a room as you listen to speakers can have just as great an effect on what you hear as the speakers themselves. Though you might try to sit in the “sweet spot,” sometimes it just isn’t possible.

So what if you want great sound anywhere you might sit? To make sure that listening to the TSS-800 is a great experience everywhere in the room, Infinity speakers use a proprietary waveguide. This conduit confines and guides electromagnetic waves around the tweeter, ensuring a wide dispersion of high frequencies throughout the room--all while keeping them both accurate and natural sounding. The result is an incredible sound experience throughout the entire room, even if someone beats you to the best seat in the house.


What's in the Box
Four TSS-800 satellite speakers, one TSS-800 center speaker, one TSS-800 subwoofer, brackets for all five speakers, and tabletop stands for all five speakers.

Product Description

TSS – Complete Movie and Music Loudspeaker system with Powered Subwoofer. Realistic surround sound, deep, powerful bass and clean dialogue reproduction will entice you into enjoying your favorite movies and music again and again

The sub has crossover and gain control, which help tweak the sound.

Great system, Handles music especially well. The box came with a couple different options for speaker mounts which was nice and I love the look of the sub. Excellent speaker construction/design. I ended up using it for a smaller room and in retrospect it could fill a larger space easily. Overall very happy with the speakers.

In my haste to get a surround sound system in my new house for superbowl i initially bought a $700.00 samsung system from best buy. First let me say im not a fan of the all in one blu-ray player with the built in surround sound system which the samsung was. Needless to say I took back the samsung which was a complete waste of money. Since then i have been looking for a speaker system that i could use with my Sony reciever. I readed up on the Infiniy TSS-800 CHR. I thought if this system looked as good as advertised and sound anything remotely like the claim they were making, then it would be a good deal. Last week Amazon had this as a gold box special so my wife bought it for me. After hooking the system up and putting it to the test (Terminator Salvation, Transfomers Revenge of the Fallen and Matrix Reloaded) I have to say, I was blown away!!!..this system was everything that the makers claim it would be. The sound was crisp and on point, the subwoofer was booming to a point that i had to turn the setting down, and the look of the speakers? well let me just say, friend have come over and the first thing that they say about the speakers is just how nice looking that they are, even the subwoofer. This set also comes with some mounting options and some beautiful stands. I went with the Rockfish wireless back speaker kit and it works great. If u r looking for a Home theater System to use with your reciever/amp...you just found them, these speakers r "Simply Awesome"

I purchased these speakers and they sound great. They were highly recommended by several local stores, so I went online to find a good price. So far, I have not had any problem with them. I would recommend these speakers to anyone.

We bought this on Amazon in response to one of their one-day special offers, and this experience has proved to me that the offers are always worth considering. This speaker system has met all of our expectations as casual home entertainment system users. Matched with the Onkyo HT-RC260 Receiver, they provide clean, crisp sound at all volume levels and in all frequency ranges in our 16' by 20' living room space -- a definite improvement over a Bose 3-2-1 system that we had for about 8 years, and which cost substantially more. The construction feels very solid and the wiring was easy to attach. Instructions were easy to follow, although they are a little short on information about the settings for the subwoofer. Thankfully, the instructions with the Receiver and the settings provided by the Audyssey program took care of that shortfall. All in all we are delighted.

This is a bargain for the sound and product quality. The speaks look beautiful. I connected the speaker to my Yamaha receiver and played the Transformer 2 blue ray DVD. The sound is amazing! To eliminate the need to run wires from the receiver to the surround sound speakers in the back, there is a Rocketfish Wireless Surround Sound Kit. Highly recommend this home theater system to anyone! It is a bargain price for the great sound quality it delivers!

First, this item retails for $800. I got it here for less than half that (Thanks Amazon). So what does $350 get you? One word, beauty. These things are gorgeous both in appearance and the clarity of sound. I'm not an audiophile but the improvement from my old RCA HTIB was massive and I haven't even upgraded the receiver yet. I'm sure when I do it will be even better. Right now I can only put 400 watts into them but even that sounds great (though my neighbors would argue that). There is no distortion. The sound is crystal on low or high volume. I will mention that the room they are in is small so I have to keep the sub turned way down or the bass overpowers the satellites. Or I can crank it when my neighbor is being a jerk. Also,they sell stands for these that look really great but for almost as much as I payed for the system. I think I'll get some 3rd party stands. When I get my new receiver I will update about how they sound when pushed to their max (sats are rated for 100 watts each, center 125). My overall impression is that these are solid (read heavy), quality, aesthetically pleasing speakers. They literally scream quality. I recommend you buy these, or the slightly larger TSS-1200 (more power handling, bigger sub) if you have a very large room.
