New York, NY. - May 20, 2004 - thiphi/Audio today unveils its THT model 6A 2.1 Versatile Speaker System to home theater enthusiasts, audiophiles and audio dealers at its Hilton Hotel New York suite #729 at the Home Entertainment Show (HE 2004).

"The THT model 6A was designed complement plasma, LCD and other flat technology monitors popular in today's home entertainment systems", states Mach Sung, co -founder of thiphi Audio. Mr. Sung continues, "there were several technical challenges to overcome in creating a 2.1 system with a tower array - unique crossover system, compact form factor, audiophile sonic reproduction, at a price that most average consumers could afford."

What makes the Model 6A unique is the tower array of six 1" transducers used to create "constant directivity" - controlled by a special crossover that creates what is in effect a tweeter with high power handling capabilities. And it also has a powerful, dual cone subwoofer that contains all of the electronics of the system. Adaptable to home theater, music, and gaming applications the high performance 6A speaker system has something to offer to everyone.

"There was so much sonic data that had to be sent to the towers - Ken decided that Cat 5 cables with RJ45 connects would work best - and it is pretty cool to be able to just hook up your speakers with Cat 5 cable," commented Philip Juang, VP Marketing. "Cooler still are the 45 degree angle 3.5" mid range cones that really bring to the system a wider sound stage," adds Nicole Lin.

"Our preliminary response from the market has been very favorable - lots of double takes and listens after we first audition the 2.1 system. A great looking and sounding system for those who want a high performance complement to their

plasmas & LCD panels, with great performance for movies and music" Mr. Juang stated.
