-- Award-Winning Home Theater and Music Loudspeakers are Showcased at CEDIA 2003 --

Huntingdon, England, September 5, 2003 -Mission, the British manufacturer that has introduced some of the world's most innovative, high -performance audio products over more than 25 years, will showcase its new volare loudspeaker series at CEDIA 2003 (Booth 30 at the Indianapolis Convention Center, September 5 - 7, 2003). The strikingly elegant volare loudspeakers, honored with the EISA European Loudspeaker of the Year Award for 2003 - 2004, combine sonic excellence with furniture -quality, real -wood cabinetry for the ultimate combination of performance and design.

Mission's new volare series is a state -of -the -art line -up that includes bookshelf and floor standing models, all fine -tuned by Mission engineers to meet the challenging demands of today's high -resolution audio/video, DVD and music formats. Ideal for either stereo or multichannel home theater, the combination of wide bandwidth and stunning dynamic range in the volare series brings music sources and movie soundtracks to life.

New Driver Technologies For Maximum Performance

Key to volare's extraordinary performance characteristics is the use of Paramid Drivers. Specially developed for the optimum combination of low resonance and high rigidity, Mission's Paramid Driver utilizes a sandwich of aramid fiber and pulp paper, resulting in outstanding midrange qualities combined with strong, clean and detailed bass output. Treble output in the volare series is handled by Mission's equally advanced Microfibre treble driver technology, featuring a new enhancement of the Mission microfibre 25mm dome incorporating a lightweight voice coil and neodymium magnet for wide dynamic range and bandwidth.

Mission's volare series will be available this fall at suggested retail prices beginning at $449.
