Acoustic Innovations Introduces Two New Showcase Personal Theaters™

Additional Designs Enhance Revolutionary Line Designed to Help Dealers Market and Sell Lower -Cost Complete Theater Interiors

CEDIA EXPO, Indianapolis, Sept. 10, 2004 - Acoustic Innovations, Inc. the leading developer and manufacturer of high -performance Home Theater Interiors and related solutions, introduces two new Showcase Personal Theaters™ to the custom installation community at the Custom Electronic Design and Installation Association (CEDIA) Expo 2004, beginning today in Indianapolis.

The new Showcase Personal Theaters are the latest models in Acoustic Innovations exclusive series of innovative room solutions. Both new designs have been incorporated into the company's new sales presentation brochure, interactive pricing estimator tool, and electronic "flip -book" using proprietary software that allows dealers to create their own customized electronic presentation binders using the dealers' logo and other branding techniques.

Acoustic Innovations' exclusive line of Showcase Personal Theaters has been developed through years of theater engineering experience to deliver exceptional performance and customer satisfaction at previously unattainable price points. They can be fully personalized to meet individual client needs and quickly installed by Acoustic Innovations dealers, yet cost significantly less than other, similarly sized theater installations.

Acoustic Innovations also offers a complete "turn -key" installation approach through which the dealer can contract to have the theater installed without using any of the dealer's personnel. The Showcase Theaters also qualify as part of the company's new "No Design Fee" program in which Acoustic Innovations fronts all the expenses to create a personalized presentation package for a dealer with nothing more than a small refundable retainer.

Acoustic Innovations Theaters have been installed in more than 1,100 residences world wide, and also as demonstration theaters at such locales as the Ultimate Home Theater Experience® in the Innoventions Pavilion at Walt Disney's Epcot® Center in Florida.

In creating the Showcase line, Acoustic Innovations developed proprietary systems to substantially simplify the production and installation of the theaters. As a result, the theaters include such innovations as variable -height columns, an ingenious new soffit system, recessed soffit lights, modular equipment cabinetry, a designer series of acoustical wall panels, retrofit theatrical porthole door kits, theatrical carpeting, and lock -fit column baseboards.

At the same time, Showcase Theaters provide customers with the ability to select their personal preferences in room style, décor, colors, seating, lighting, painted or stained hardwood finishes, wall and floor treatments, and even structural details. Theaters can be personalized by adding sconces or recessed lights, adjusting columns or soffits, or adding a modular equipment and speaker cabinet up front. In particular, the equipment cabinets are very useful for hiding subwoofers, center channel speakers, DVD players and gaming consoles, and even equipment racks if all the electronics are to be placed in the theater.

Showcase Theaters fit in almost any room at least 9 feet wide and 12 feet long, and can be installed in 15 to 35 man -hours, depending on room size and complexity. They are available at prices ranging from about $15,000 to $40,000, inclusive of customized theater seating, from authorized Acoustic Innovations dealers who are equipped to provide accurate costs for each project, based on its style, components, size and site -specific issues.

See the new Showcase Personal Theaters as well as all the innovative selling tools, pricing estimators, examples of presentation packages, etc., along with Acoustic Innovations' other outstanding theater interior and customized seating solutions in Booth 350, Indiana Convention Center, during CEDIA EXPO.
