September 15, 2008, Billerica, MA …….. Sherbourn's distinctive IWA -1 (In -Wall) amplifier was awarded the prestigious Best New Product at the recent CEDIA show.

CEDIA presented the prestigious Manufacturers' Excellence Awards at its annual banquet Saturday, September 6. The awards included the perennial Best New Product category, expanded this year to honor the 10 products judged to have the greatest impact on an electronic systems contractor's business.

"We are delighted that the efforts of so many people were recognized with this prestigious award. We are humbled and anticipate a terrific response from the industry for this unique and remarkable product," said Ron Fone, President of Sherbourn.

This long anticipated amplifier offers a myriad of features and its robust 90 watt external power supply allows it to drive two pairs of 8 -ohm speakers.

Designed primarily for use with flat panel televisions, this diminutive class A/B amplifier outputs 25/35 watts of clean 'discrete' power into 8/4 ohms respectively. The IWA -1 is designed to be mounted in its (included) "double -gang" metal box. It is an affordable "stealth" amplifier (white grill included) with a sound quality that will truly enhance a flat -screen's movie watching experience. The IWA -1 can alternatively be used as an economical "zone" amplifier for driving two pairs of speakers.

Features include; audio/video switching to an external amplifier, discrete power on/off and muting and IR remote for volume control and settings that can be directly accessed via the numeric keys on the included hand remote. In addition the IWA -1 has line level and speaker level controls, a 1 -pole crossover, subwoofer output, audio/video signal sensing, line level and high level balanced inputs and it even has a ground -lift switch. The adjustable 12 -volt trigger delay can be programmed to the user's requirements from 5 seconds to 5 minutes. RS -232 controllability allows great flexibility in the set -up and control process.

The IWA -1 amplifier offers an opportunity to turn every flat panel sale into one of lasting satisfaction for your customers and improved profitability for you and further extends Sherbourn's reputation for designing innovative "custom solutions" at affordable prices.

MSRP is $400
