NUVO'S CONCERTO AUDIO DISTRIBUTION SYSTEM IS SHIPPING

The system provides 80 watts of clear, precise sound to six powered listening zones and provides two additional non-amplified zones for use with auxiliary amplification to serve large listening areas.

June 23, 2004, CINCINNATI, OH -The much anticipated Concerto™ Six -Source, Eight -Zone Audio Distribution System is shipping.


Concerto presents NuVo's new Generation D™ utilizing the D Amplifier™ from Philips Semiconductors. The system provides 80 watts of clear, precise sound to six powered listening zones and provides two additional non -amplified zones for use with auxiliary amplification to serve large listening areas. The use of the state -of -the -art digital D Amplifier™ allows the Concerto system to operate at peak efficiency, requiring low power and generating very little heat.

The Concerto system offers a variety of special features. The system is easily configured and customized using the Concerto Configurator software. NuVo's trademark EZ Port integrates the system's Cat -5 wires so installation requires just a single network cable to the amplifier. Moreover, fixed and variable lineouts are available on every zone for use with an additional amplifier.

Concerto's fully programmable display pad boasts a dual -gang design with elegant, backlit buttons and a vacuum fluorescent display with a clear image that is easy to read in any light environment. Macro command capabilities allow users to make a series of commands with one push of a button, and additional "hotkey" functions let the user easily set zone -specific commands, such as a "do not disturb" command, parental keypad lock, and a whole -house master "party mode." The display pad menu permits control of treble, bass, and balance in each individual zone. For large, open living spaces, such as a kitchen, dining room, or great room, a unique grouping feature enables up to four groups of display pads to share the same source selection while maintaining individual volume control.

The Concerto Six -Source, Eight -Zone Audio Distribution System package retails for just $2,999. The package ships with the Concerto Generation D six -source, eight -zone amplifier; six display pads, each with white, ivory, and almond cover plates; six IR emitters; an EZ Port multi -port connection plate; and network cable.
