Matrix Audio Mi-Series Product Family Will Enable Users to Distribute Audio from as Many as Eight Sources to Up to 64 Zones and Provides Control Options Through Ethernet, IR Remote Control and Touchpad Devices
ORLANDO - March 30, 2006 - Matrix Audio Designs, a manufacturer of high -fidelity audio distribution systems for homes and businesses, today announced that it will debut its new Mi -Series product family, the company's feature -rich next -generation audio distribution solution for homes and businesses, at the 2006 Electronic House Expo (booth #841). Designed for unparalleled ease -of -use and expandability, the innovative Matrix Mi -Series delivers to end users a future -proof solution through an intelligent architecture that enables plug -and -play expansion for adding options to or upgrading the system to meet future requirements.
Incorporating Matrix Audio's proprietary Speaker Wire Technology (SWT), which allows both data and audio signals to travel over the same four conductors or speaker wire, the new modular four -source Mi -Series 4, six -source Mi -Series 6 and eight -source Mi -Series 8 can be configured to distribute audio to as few as two zones (or rooms) up to as many as 64 zones. All Mi -Series systems come standard with a single AM -FM tuner, alarm clock module, S -RC extruded aluminum remote control, and Mi -Control technology with software that enables the system to support full IP -based network control. In addition, the Mi -Series controllers will support Matrix Audio's full touch screen interface (keypad) technology and will feature enhanced audio DSP capability provided by SRS Labs™ which includes Bass Boost to create a virtual subwoofer in every zone.
Fully compatible with Matrix Audio's flagship C -Series in -ceiling speakers, Mi -Series delivers exceptional acoustical performance and ensures pure sonic performance through the company's "Overdrive Stability," an advancement which prevents the system from overdriving the speakers.
"The arrival of our Mi -Series product line has been greatly anticipated by our resellers and end users," explained Jeff Wait, Vice President of Sales and Marketing for Matrix Audio Designs. "This next -generation solution adds a host of new technologies and features that weren't previously available in our extremely popular Series product line. In bringing to market a total solution that meets the demands of homes and businesses for extraordinary audio performance, ease -of -use, flexibility, and reliability, we've incorporated elements from our highly successful Series and Delta platforms and added new technologies to deliver the most innovative, versatile, high -performance solution available."
