NUVO TECHNOLOGIES UNVEILS TWO UPGRADED PRODUCTS

NuVo Upgrades: Essentia D now has RS232 bidirectional communication, digital amplification for minimal heat generation, and Decora-style insertable keypads. AccentPLUS1 speakers improved with high-quality crossovers and low-profile view.

NuVo Technologies has announced the release of two new, upgraded products for the Fall quarter.


Essentia, NuVo`s six -source, six -zone audio system, which brought revolutionary features and flexibility to the world of distributed audio systems, is now improved and better than ever. The new Essentia D System has been enhanced with the Generation D protocol, which utilizes the D Amplifier™ digital output by Philips Semiconductors. The highly reliable D Amplifier™ reduces energy consumption, dramatically reduces heat, and delivers stunningly clear sound.

Features of the upgrade include:
Generation D digital amplification, providing 20 watts per channel for 40 total watts of pure, clean sound in each zone.
RS232 serial data port for system control via a home automation device.
Fixed and variable lineouts available simultaneously for each zone.
A new backlit keypad redesigned to fit into any standard Decora -style cover plate, with white, ivory, and almond inserts shipped with each keypad.
NuVo's EZ Port connection hub, which simplifies installation by reducing all the Cat -5 cable connections to one network input.

The NuVo Essentia D package contains one E6M distribution amplifier, six keypad controllers, one RC2 remote controller, four IR Emitters, one NuVo EZ Port, and a network connection cable. The system will begin shipping to customers in November at a retail price of just $1,999.

NuVo has also introduced the AccentPLUS1 line of in -wall and in -ceiling speakers. The speakers show off a new, sleek, low -profile design and a micro -perforated, paintable grill that lets speakers blend seamlessly with any home decor. Other features include:
A high -quality 12dB crossover that provides a more balanced and defined listening experience.
Solid brass terminals that resist corrosion and provide greater contact with the audio wire for better audio quality.
A special perforated basket that helps prevent debris from falling into the cone.
Silk -dome pivotal tweeters.
A new, single/dual -voice coil 6 1/2` round stereo speaker.

Speakers will begin shipping in December. Retail prices range from $129 for the 6 1/2` stereo speaker to $299 for the 8` in -wall speaker.
