Boston Acoustics Named Official Audio Sponsor for Backstage GRAMMY® Awards Talent Lounge

Performers and Presenters at Annual Music Show to Receive New High -Performance Boston Acoustics MicroSystem CD Entertainment Centers

PEABODY, MA, Feb. 7, 2005 - Boston Acoustics, Inc., 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, has been selected the official audio sponsor of the Bratz British Invasion Talent Lounge at the 47th Annual GRAMMY® Awards.

GRAMMY presenters and performers who stop by the luxurious backstage Lounge during the rehearsals leading to the awards show will have the opportunity to receive Boston Acoustics new MicroSystem CD, a high performance CD/AM/FM tabletop entertainment center that produces audiophile -pleasing sound, with built -in conveniences that make it easy for anyone, recording industry superstars included, to use and enjoy.

The MicroSystem CD is the only audio product that will be available in the Bratz British Invasion Lounge at the Staples Center in Los Angeles. Boasting performances by some of the music industry's most important artists, the GRAMMY® Awards will be hosted this year by Queen Latifah on Feb. 13, 2005, and broadcast domestically by the CBS Television Network (8 PM, EST/PCT).

Boston's MicroSystem CD delivers rich, room -filling sound with space -friendly style. Small, elegant, and sophisticated, it combines a radio and CD player with big stereo audio and over a dozen listener -friendly features. Convenient inputs for iPods® and MP3 players, a slot -loading CD, a big and bright LCD display, dual alarm clocks, back -up power for the alarms, connections for headphones, and a magnet -backed, credit -card size remote control make it ideal for any room in a house, an office or a dorm - as a compact stereo system or a bedside companion.

The MicroSystem CD's superb ability to pull in weak stations separates it from other 'shelf systems', while precision circuitry locks in FM stations, eliminating drift, and patent -pending BassTrac® circuitry produces deep bass out of proportion to the system's compact size.

Of course, MicroSystem CD listeners also enjoy The Boston Sound™, an acclaimed feature of all Boston Acoustics speaker systems that reproduces music and movie sound with exceptional accuracy. The Boston Sound delivers the music and sound effects that recording artists intend with a pure neutral tonal consistency that remains the same for all Boston Acoustics speakers.

The MicroSystem CD is available from authorized Boston Acoustics dealers at a suggested price of $499.
