Russound Debuts UNO -TS2 Color Touchscreen

Smart user interface provides new levels of style and convenience

NEWMARKET, N.H., May 16, 2005 ´┐½ Russound´┐½, a leading manufacturer of multiroom audio and video products for the residential systems market, has introduced its UNO -TS2 Smart Color Touchscreen that provides a powerful user interface for multisource/multizone home entertainment systems. With the UNO -TS2, end users can easily access, control and, most importantly, enjoy their music and video conveniently. Available immediately at $1299 MAP, the UNO -TS2 represents a state -of -the -art user interface.

According to Russound´┐½s Andy Lewis, ´┐½Color touchscreens have become an increasingly popular product category, particularly in multiroom systems. From the outset, we designed our new touchscreen for a highly interactive experience to make it very easy to use. To do that, the UNO -TS2 utilizes a combination of hard buttons for the most often used commands and soft buttons that are easily defined and created through software functions.´┐½
In addition, the UNO -TS2 leverages RNET´┐½, the company´┐½s proprietary communications platform that allows Russound smart components to communicate with one another. For example, when used with any ST2 Smart Tuner or the SMS3 Smart Media Server, the UNO -TS2 provides the user with valuable feedback such as theme, channel, artist and title, all in real time. Moreover the UNO -TS2 supports custom preset, bank, theme and source names for a truly personalized touch and simplicity of operation.
The UNO -TS2 is the ultimate RNET user interface and its compact size fits neatly in a two gang box, making for an easy upgrade over commonly available double gang keypads. The UNO -TS2 is available in five designer colors: white, bone, almond, black and brown.
Key Features:
Informative ´┐½ real -time display shows what´┐½s playing, with volume level and individualized playlist information right on the touchscreen.
Innovative ´┐½ built on award -winning RNET technology offering complete control and limitless possibilities.
Effortless ´┐½ full featured, high -resolution color LCD 3.75´┐½ diagonal touchscreen is easy to read and simple to navigate.
