Ethereal Introduces EHT Line of Interconnects

Value-priced line provides high performance for entry-level home theater enthusiasts

HOLLY HILL, Fla., JANUARY 24, 2006: Ethereal Home Theater meets the needs of the entry -level home theater enthusiast with its premium -quality EHT line of A/V interconnects.


Previously sold at retailers as the 700 Series, EHT represents a redesign that carries through a consistent look throughout Ethereal's consumer lines, which include flagship Elite and the new mid -market EM. The EHT line incorporates many of the same core design and construction principles as the EM line, but does not include the upgrades. Cables have a sleek black PVC jacket, with ends that are color -coded in bright hues and shaped to provide a good grip for installation convenience.

"Because EHT is geared for entry -level home theater consumers who are likely to be doing their own equipment hook -up, we wanted to make the process as easy as possible," said Bill Fornino, Ethereal Home Theater COO. "For that reason, EHT's color -coded ends are in bright colors, so the consumer can readily see which cables go where. The grips at the ends provide a secure hold on the cable."

Quality construction features include:
• 24K gold -plated terminals for the best
possible signal transfer
• Low capacitance dielectric inner cable jackets and Mylar® foil shield for optimum noise rejection
• Precision -wound strands of braided oxygen -free copper for the clearest transmit and return paths


The EHT line covers eight product categories to address the most popular applications: audio stereo, audio digital coaxial, Toslink™ optical, composite, video stereo audio, S -cable, F -F CATV and component.

EHT is also available for professional installers in polybag packaging.

Said Fornino, "EHT is ideal for consumers who are just getting started with home theater and want high performance, but don't need the advanced cable construction features that would be necessary to get the most from upgraded or high -end equipment."
