Phase Technology Introduces The Digital Home Theater Speaker Line

JACKSONVILLE, FL - January 9, 2004 - Phase Technology unveils its first Digital Home Theater system at CES 2004 in Las Vegas, Nevada. This all -digital system will fully immerse the listener in the home theater experience to a degree that no conventional surround -sound system can. The initial offerings will be available in multi -channel audio/video configurations and will feature digital control over all performance parameters.

"The DHT™ System represents an important step forward, both for us as a company and in the technology we're applying to home theater audio", notes Ken Hecht, president of Phase Technology. "We've taken the immersive feel of home theater to an unprecedented level of accuracy with this new digital system. Through the use of digital amplifiers, digital crossovers and DSP, the listener can now fully experience the psychoacoustic nuances of the movie they're watching or the music they're listening to."

The DHT™ System features:
• All digital active electronics

• Discreet class -D digital amplification
- 100 watts per component (200 watts per speaker)
- 500 watts to subwoofer

• Digital Absolute Phase™ Crossover
- Phase & Time Correction
- Frequency Correction

• Digital and analog inputs

• 192 kHz sample -rate

• Stereo front and rear speakers have 6 -1/2" woofer and 1" tweeter
- Woofer uses RPF™ flat -piston technology
- Soft dome variable -axis tweeter

• Center channel speaker has 2 x 6 -1/2" RPF™ woofers and one 1" soft dome tweeter

• 10" ultra long -throw subwoofer

Phase Technology's Digital Home Theater System continues the company's long -standing tradition of innovation through excellence. The all -digital system uses a complex assortment of digital components mated with state -of -the -art speaker components, loaded into hand -crafted enclosures to deliver an unparalleled listening experience.

The DHT System is a complete home theater system and requires only a source, such as a DVD player or a surround sound receiver. At the heart of the system is a DSP (digital signal processor) that manages the incoming audio signal by passing each channel through an active digital crossover where the signal is divided into the range of frequencies that will be delivered to each speaker. The front and rear surround speakers each incorporate a 6 -1/2" version of Phase Technology's proprietary RPF™ flat -piston woofers and a 1" variable -axis soft dome tweeter. The center channel has the same tweeter placed between two of the 6 -1/2" woofers. Low frequencies are delivered via a 500 watt, 10" ultra long -throw subwoofer.

By separately amplifying each speaker component in the system, the DSP (digital signal processor) can actively control the frequency range and contour the frequency response to each component. The DSP also widens the on -axis frequency response window between the woofer and tweeter of each speaker cabinet. These capabilities allow the system to compensate for the characteristics of the room itself, thereby delivering optimum performance in any listening environment.

The Digital Home Theater System from Phase Technology is a showcase for the company to express their long -standing commitment to the audio industry as a technology leader and innovator. The company's first major contribution to the advancement of audio reproduction was the invention of the soft dome tweeter in 1967. That technology is still widely used in most home audio loudspeakers. Over the past forty -nine years, Phase Technology has continued to make profound contributions and advancements to the audio industry. The Digital Home Theater is, proudly, their next bold step.

About Phase Technology

Phase Technology Corporation (toll -free at 888 -PHASE TK; website at is one of the few fully -vertically integrated American speaker manufacturers. The company started as United Speaker Systems in 1955 as an original equipment manufacturer and still designs and produces all of its own sub -assemblies. Phase Technology's speaker lines incorporate many proprietary innovations like the soft -dome tweeter, the industry standard invented by Bill Hecht, founder of Phase Technology. Other patents cover the self -damping woofer voice coil, the manufacturing process for flat -piston midrange drivers and woofers, silicone -injected drivers for resonance damping, and the positive -clamping mounting system for the premier in -wall Model CI -110/II. The company also developed the Unicell™ Zero -Diffraction treatment that reduces acoustic reflections off cabinet and grille surfaces. Phase Technology manufactures all of its wood cabinets by hand and performs quality control tests over the fabrication and assembly of every speaker component. All Phase Technology home theater, audiophile, outdoor and in -wall/in -ceiling custom installation speakers are constructed at the company`s Jacksonville, Florida headquarters facility and are covered by a 10 -year warranty. Phase Technology's amplifiers are covered by a 3 -year warranty.
