Russound Celebrates 40 Years of Value

Russound, #1 Brand in Multiroom Audio/Video, to Mark 40th Year of Exceptional Product, Devotion to Dealers

DENVER, CO, September 12, 2006 - Russound, the #1 brand in multiroom audio, is proud to announce its newest milestone - their 40 -year anniversary of providing high quality home audio components.

Through the years, Russound has followed a simple formula: Build quality products, offer end -users practical solutions to multiroom audio/video integration and never rest on your laurels.

"We don't just happen to be a business that sells multiroom audio/video products - it's what we're all about. Our goal is meeting our customers' needs and making home entertainment more enjoyable," said Russound President Maureen Baldwin. "For 40 years, we have made multiroom audio/video easy for homeowners, regardless of budget. Everyone at Russound is committed to bringing the 'Russound Experience' to the end user. Each of our employees brings their own special skills and experiences to their roles. Our success is a result of having assembled the finest group of customers, employees and business partners. I consider this a privilege."

Since the beginning, Russound has worked hard to provide its customers with multiroom audio systems that fit their needs. For example, Russound has always been the leading proponent of A -BUS®, which transmits stereo music to amplified keypads throughout the customer's home over a single CAT -5 cable. A -BUS makes multiroom audio affordable to many homeowners. For users looking for an enhanced multiroom audio/video experience, Russound's RNET® systems allows users to control source components from zone mounted keypads and touchscreens that display source metadata. Russound offers multiroom systems featuring easy design and configuration for any budget.

"We are committed to working with our partners to provide end -users with solutions to their multiroom audio/video needs," said Ms. Baldwin. "Russound was built on the foundation of being genuine. As our business grows, we will continue to deliver outstanding quality, service and value. This is an exciting time in the world of technology, and Russound looks forward to celebrating the next 40 years with our partners and distributors."
