Matrix Audio Design Delivers Multiple -Room Audio Distribution to the Masses

Affordable Matrix Delta Enables Users to Easily Distribute Audio From As Many as Four Audio Sources To Up To Six Rooms Using A Remote Control or Wall-Mounted LCD Touchscreen

LAS VEGAS - January 5, 2006 - Matrix Audio Designs, a manufacturer of high -fidelity audio distribution systems for homes and businesses, today announced at the 2006 Consumer Electronics Show that it has begun shipping Matrix Delta, a low -cost, feature -rich audio distribution system for homes and small businesses.

Incorporating Matrix Audio's proprietary Speaker Wire Technology™ (SWT), which enables the system to be controlled over simple four -conductor wire in addition to Cat -5 or other control wiring, Matrix Delta allows users to control and distribute audio from as many as four sources, such as an AM/FM tuner, CD player, satellite radio, or MP3 players, to up to six "zones" in home or office environments.

Using Matrix Audio's easy -to -use intuitive keypad interface, remote control or the new Delta LCD Touchscreen, users have full control over the audio played in each zone with the ability to select audio sources, access and control each source function, control volume, and manage system settings for bass, treble and balance.

"The Delta was developed from the ground up, employing the most current SWT technology with improved drive capability to enhance control and audio performance while lowering the cost. The Matrix Delta solution is fully supported by the new Delta tactile keypad or the fully functional single gang Delta LCD Touchscreen and Delta Remote," explained Jeff Wait, Vice President of Sales and Marketing for Matrix Audio Designs. "For years, installers have proven our technology's reliability, providing a rich, dynamic audio signature and precise source control in any installation environment. SWT's flexibility and superior retrofit capability allow installers to replace volume controls with the most current Matrix interfaces including the new Delta Touchscreen, which gives the user a richer experience through a display that provides system feedback and source information that wasn't previously available."

Available in four -zone (Delta 4) or six -zone (Delta 6) versions, Matrix Delta's standard features include four or six Delta navigation keypads, an RS -232 port, one preamp output, and an expansion port that will enable the easy integration of additional capabilities in the future. Available options to customize the system include an AM/FM tuner, numeric keypads for direct access control, LCD Touch Screen keypad, and the new extruded aluminum Delta remote control.

Matrix Delta utilizes a modular design that allows for future upgrades including the expansion of zones and the addition of tuners, keypads and remotes. USB and RS -232 ports enable installers to easily load firmware and software updates, and troubleshoot the system.

Available now through resellers nationwide, Matrix Delta controllers, keypad interfaces, remote controls, and the Delta LCD Touchscreen are covered by a one year limited warranty.
