Ok so I have seen reference to this speaker design a few times. Tried to use the search function for 8ST and got no results. So---- what is the basic concept? Is this supposed to be a surround sound design that could be wall mounted? Or is it a stand mount? Is it a more compact cabinet? Any info please?????

Really wanting to go with the Cat 8s for the front 3 but wondered about this new design. Thanks.
Pete

Hi Pete,

This was buried on page 3 of the original Catalyst 8C thread and still holds mostly accurate:


I believe the base will end up at 17" square instead of 18".  The '8ST will use the amplifier from the '12C to deliver much of the same capability in a conventional, floor standing package.  I still am awaiting samples and costs on the enclosure but I expect the 8C to be similar in price to the 12C while not needing a stand and being a much more reasonable fit in living spaces than the 16" wide Catalyst 12C.

Mark,

We spoke about a month or so ago and at that time you said the 8ST's/CL's were slated to roll out around the end of March.  Is that still your expectation?

Thanks,
Allan

Mark,

Are you still considering the 8ST design as a product? Or is it totally off the table for the time being? If you are, can you tell us a rough idea of price for an espresso veneered 8ST?

Also, is the phone number on your home page accurate? I tried calling several times but it seems to be directing me to another number.

Thanks,
Ryan

Just wanted to bump this thread as I too am still interested in the 8ST's/CL and if/when they'll be available for purchase.

Been dreaming of a full Seaton setup for quite a while now and the Cat8ST would be the most ergonomic design for a full standing tower for my living space. 

There have been some great additions to the Seaton family with the 18i and F2, along with the new Sparks, but I haven't seen news on the Cat8ST and CL in quite a long time.

Are these designs still on the plate for a future Seaton Product?
