Affordable Music-and-Movie Entertainment System Delivers Unparalleled Value With The Boston Sound TM , UniView Video TM and Plug-&-Play Installation

EHX FALL, LONG BEACH, CA, Nov. 16, 2004 - - Boston Acoustics, Inc. (NASDAQ: BOSA), a premier manufacturer of high -performance audio solutions for use in home music and audio -video systems, after -market and OEM automotive systems, and custom built -in audio systems, showcases the Avidea TM 610 Integrated Home Theater System at the Electronic House Expo, beginning here today.

The Avidea 610 is a completely integrated movie -and -music home entertainment system of unparalleled value. Innovatively combining form and function, it delivers outstanding audio and video performance in a compact package that's exceptionally easy to install and use. The system consists of a combined DVD/CD Player and Receiver, four Silver Micro110x Satellite Speakers, a Silver Micro110c Center Channel, a PV700 Powered Subwoofer, and an easy -to -use Universal Remote Control.

The sound quality is pure, natural, true to the original - - The Boston Sound TM . It is the sound recognized for its smooth octave -to -octave tonal balance, from the deepest bass to the highest treble. All Boston Acoustics systems present highs, mids and lows in perfect balance. It is the same consistent voice you hear no matter which Boston speakers you are listening to, including those of the Avidea 610.

The Player/Receiver is compatible with today's most popular disc and surround sound formats, including DVD, CD, Video CD, MP3, WMA, CD -R, CD -RW, JPEG images and Picture CDs. The Player/Receiver also features progressive scan (480p) component video output from the internal DVD drive; compatibility with Dolby® Digital, DTS® and Dolby Pro Logic® II audio sources; and a high -performance AM/FM Tuner with 40 presets.

In addition, Boston Acoustics' proprietary UniView TM technology ensures video connectivity without complexity. Users can add any video device to the Avidea 610 without concern about connector type. UniView automatically sorts it all out, converting any video input to 480i component output and assuring the best possible picture quality regardless of source. The result is unprecedented ease of connection and operation. Users can instantly, and correctly, connect any video device, regardless of connector type. With an HD -ready TV, video sources such as digital cable and satellite look as good as DVD.

The Avidea 610 delivers detailed and dynamic sound through a robust satellite/subwoofer speaker system. Five timbre -matched Micro110x compact satellite speakers, including a Micro110c center -channel speaker, all featuring two -way designs, complement a powerful 200 -watt PV700 Powered Subwoofer. The PV700 boasts a 12 -inch driver and Boston Acoustics' Deep Channel Design TM (DCD TM ) technology that enables the front -firing woofer to utilize a smaller -than -expected enclosure. Proprietary BassTrac® circuitry assures low distortion for the sub, even at high output levels.

This produces seamless surround sound with bass of extraordinary output and depth. Movie soundtracks and music are reproduced with impressive detail, impact, emotion and fidelity.

Burnished with a handsome silver finish, the Avidea 610 Integrated Home Theater System is available now from authorized Boston Acoustics dealers at a suggested price of $1,199. It can be seen with Boston Acoustics' other outstanding products in Booth 728, Long Beach Convention Center, during EHX FALL 2004.
