NOW SHIPPING: NILES STAGEFRONT HOME THEATER SOLUTIONS™

New home theater loudspeakers designed with same passion and precision that propelled Niles to the top of the CI market

MIAMI, FLORIDA - March 19, 2007 - Niles Audio Corporation, The First Name in Custom Installation®, announced today the shipment of StageFront Home Theater Solutions™, a new line of loudspeakers designed specifically for home theater applications, to Niles factory -authorized dealers worldwide. In creating StageFront Home Theater Solutions, Niles is invigorating home theater with the same passion and application -specific design that propelled the company to the top of the custom installation marketplace.


StageFront has distinct benefits over traditional home theater loudspeakers, including features that help custom installers. The entire StageFront series includes both in -wall and cabinet models that are voice -matched to deliver consistent uniform sound quality, regardless of loudspeaker type. This frees custom installers to design systems incorporating some models that are built into cabinets or placed on stands, with others that are built into walls, optimizing performance, appearance and design flexibility. This is a feature unique to Niles, as no other brand on the market today offers voice -matched dedicated and in -wall home theater loudspeakers that can be mixed and matched.

Other CI specific features include 12 -Volt trigger activated bi -pole/di -pole switching, pivoting midrange/tweeter pods and resonance -controlling cabinets for predictably -precise imaging. Advanced technology drivers with cast baskets, carbon -fiber woofers and fluid -cooled Teteron tweeters ensure a dynamic impact that's on par with the best movie theaters. Named best of show at CEDIA EXPO 2006 by the Absolute Sound and the recipient of a CES 2007 Innovations accolade, StageFront Home Theater Solutions is poised to become the world's premier home theater loudspeaker line.

"StageFront Home Theater Solutions has been a true labor of love for Niles," said Frank Sterns, president of Niles Audio Corporation. "The line was created by custom installers for custom installers, with their home theater needs and design challenges in mind. The response we have received from our dealers has been overwhelmingly positive," Sterns added.
