New York - August 11, 2008 - Sooloos LLC, a leader in premium networked home entertainment systems, today announced the addition of Peter Wellikoff as its Chief Operating Officer.

Wellikoff, an accomplished 37 -year consumer electronics industry veteran who most recently served as President and CEO of B&W Group from 1995 to 2007, has been a member of Sooloos' Board of Directors since the beginning of 2008, where he had become heavily involved in all aspects of the company's strategic planning and development.

"As a board member, Peter has leveraged his many years of experience in the CE industry to provide our management team with a wealth of new industry knowledge and information," said Sooloos CEO Enno Vandermeer. "Given the enormous growth we anticipate in revenue, distribution and our product line this fall, the time has come for us to proactively expand and develop our corporate infrastructure. We are thrilled that Peter has joined us full -time to oversee our company's operations."

Wellikoff, a well -known, respected figure in the industry and a longtime board member of the Consumer Electronics Association's (CEA) PARA Division, was previously responsible for North American operations of the B&W, Classe and Rotel brands for B&W Group.

From 1987 to 1994, Wellikoff served as president and CEO of KH Group, and previously held senior executive positions with Kloss Video, Tandberg Audio and Philips Audio Video Systems. He began his career in 1971 as a retailer, co -founding Innovative Audio Video Showrooms along with two speaker brands, Innotech and Abraxis.

"Sooloos' unique and compelling home entertainment platform is a breath of fresh air, and a source of great excitement and energy for the home entertainment industry," said Wellikoff.
