Woburn, MA - August 22, 2007 - Final Sound Solutions, a full developer and manufacturer of award winning high -definition surround sound solutions for home theater enthusiasts and audiophiles, its 300i loudspeaker was awarded "Product of the Year" by Electronic House. Final Sound's 300i electrostatic speakers were selected for their high -end performance, sleek design and affordability. Final Sound will demonstrate the 300i as well as their entire line of surround sound solutions from September 5 - 9, at the 2007 CEDIA Expo, held in the Colorado Convention Center in Denver, CO at booth SR -17.
"In 2007, hundreds of entries were submitted for the Electronic House magazine 2007 "Product of the Year" awards contest. The editors of EH Publishing's four connected home magazines waded through, argued over and finally chose their favorite products. It is a democratic voting process. And although it's fun, this has got to be one of our most difficult jobs. There are many products that cover the whole connected home and that deserve recognition, but we had to limit ourselves in order to fit the list into the magazine," said Cindy Davis, editor -in -chief, Electronic House magazine. "Our decisions are based on product demos, talking with installers and users and sometimes going out on a limb for products we found to be promising. Topping our list of criteria is technological innovation, combined with overall value, lifestyle benefits, and just plain outstanding features."
"We are extremely honored to be recognized by Electronic House with a "Product of the Year" award," said Gijsbert van den Brink, CEO of Final Sound Solutions. "This acknowledgement from such a highly regarded publication supports Final Sound's dedication to meet the distinguished needs of music lovers and the lifestyle and aesthetic requirements of interior designers. The technology in all of our panels, including the 300i has been patented. Our Inverter™ technology allows a substantial better sound reproduction, especially for virtual surround compared with all the other solutions available."
The 300i panels are an addition to Final Sound's existing 90i, 150i, 400i, 600i and 1000i panels. The panels mix the best of design and sound. The frequency response is 95 -22kHz +/ - 3dB, sensitivity of 86 dB, impedance of nominal 4 ohms, require an amplifier of 40 watt minimum and only weigh 17,6 pounds. The basic panels are available in satin silver with black finish but can be customized in a variety of colors. The panels come with a standard floor stand but have an optional wall mount solution for the larger screen home entertainment solutions and entry level high quality stereo systems. The recommended retail price for a stereo pair 300i is 1999$US. Please visit www.finalsound.com to find a dealer near you.

About Inverter™ Technology
With its exclusive Inverter Technology, Final re -engineered the way sound and power move across the face of the speaker. Traditional electrostatic designs move the audio signal across the stator plates on each side of a Mylar diaphragm to "pull" the film and create the sound. The Final technology "inverts" that process by embedding the audio signal inside a sealed diaphragm. This creates sound energy that is stronger, clearer, far more responsive, and amazingly lifelike. The design of
the new inverter enables speaker impedance to be substantially higher than traditional electrostats. This allows the use of smaller amplifiers - as low as 35 watts for the 90i and 150i and 75 watts for the 1000i - to drive the speakers. An important benefit of the Final Inverter technology is the separation of the high and medium low tones, resulting in a far broader stereo image.
