Salem, NH, May 20, 2004 - Fidelis, a retailer and distributor of widely acclaimed audio and video equipment, is displaying AUDIOPAX's new line of products including the M88 monoblock amplifier, Model 5 preamp and REF100 loudspeaker at the Home Entertainment show, May 20 -23 in Room 704.

"The Home Entertainment Show is the perfect venue for Fidelis to showcase the new AUDIOPAX line -up," noted Walter Swanbon, President of Fidelis. "Dealers and audio enthusiasts alike are able to experience firsthand the quality and craftsmanship AUDIOPAX puts into its products."

M88 Monoblock Amplifier
World renowned Brazilian audio designer Eduardo DeLima spent 10 years developing the incredible
Model 88 monoblock amplifier. The unit delivers 30 Watts RMS in a single -ended design with an unusually extended frequency response (14 Hz to 90KHz -3dB; - 0.0dB down at 20KHz). The M88's Timbre Lock tuning feature is the world's first (and only) optimally adjustable amplifier/speaker interface, allowing users to fine tune the unit to each individual need.

Each hand -assembled Model 88 features two KT88 power tubes and two 12AT7 driver tubes encased in either a classic chassis consisting of a central chrome -plated, solid brass bridge or as an aluminum chassis accented with lacquered side cheeks and plinth.

The Model 88 monoblock amplifier is currently available at a retail price of $12,990.00 in chrome, and $9,490.00 for the Version 2 (lacquered).

Model 5 Pre -Amplifier
The equally stunning AUDIOPAX Model 5 pre -amp is the perfect compliment to the Model 88 amplifier. Utilizing the same no -nonsense approach to design built into the company's amplifier, each pre -amp is a transformer -coupled, solid -state line stage with outboard power supply. The unit's twin gain adjustments (master and amp -match) transfer the concept of timbre lock to the preamplifier domain, creating a more controlled sound environment. In addition, a full function RF remote makes it easy to sit back and become immersed in the performance.

Similar to the Model 88 Amplifier, the Model 5 pre -amp comes with a choice of either a chrome chassis or painted lacquer.

The Model 5 Pre -Amp is currently available at a retail price of $4,990.00 in chrome and $3,990.00 for the Version 2 (painted).

REF100 Loudspeaker
The AUDIOPAX REF100 loudspeaker is the result of extensive research into the interface of loudspeakers and amplifiers. It was designed to be an ideal match for low -feedback tube and solid -state amplifiers.

The twin cabinet design is built from 1 1/8" (2.8mm) and 2" (50mm) braced MDF finished in a choice of piano black or metallic gloss lacquer finishes in a variety of colors - - keeping its own resonances not only at low levels but also the least intrusive frequencies. And a seamless blending of sound from 35Hz all the way up to 40kHz is achieved by the expert craftsmanship of specially designed crossovers combined with custom built eight -inch midrange, ten -inch woofer and superb dual ring radiator high frequency drivers.

The REF100 loudspeakers are currently available at a retail price of $12,990.00.
