i -deck Personal Stereo Companion Wins Tech Living Hot 50 Product Award

The British Invasion Continues with the Perfect iPod Companion!

PICKERING, ONT - OCTOBER 7, 2005 - Monitor Audio, the UK's leading specialty loudspeaker company, today announced that its i -deck personal stereo companion for iPods has received the 2005 Tech Living Magazine Hot 50 Award. With a Euro -chic design that accommodates any décor, the i -deck's separate speakers (7.5 high x 5.75 wide) produce breathtaking audio performance that directly contradicts their compact size.




"We wanted to deliver the concept of lifestyle with the i -deck, not just great sound quality," said Simon Spears, vice president of operations for Monitor Audio USA. "We are honored that Tech Living Magazine agrees with our belief that the i -deck personifies that value as one of this year's hottest 50 products."



With convenient features like continuous playback when the user docks their iPod into the i -deck, users no longer have to restart songs or playlists. Mid -track playback is another distinguishable feature that allows i -deck to never miss a beat during docking. The i -deck sports a credit card sized RF remote that can control the i -deck from anywhere in the house and the unit also recharges iPods during playback.



A perfect match for iPod, i -deck is provided with easily interchangeable bezels, making it an equally attractive home for iPod 3G, iPod 4G, iPod color, iPod mini and iPod Photo. A 30 pin port allows you to synchronize operation with your PC or Mac via USB or Firewire. An additional auxiliary input allows you to hook up a wide range of other equipment sources too, including iPod Shuffle, MiniDiscs, CD players, radios and more.


Designed and manufactured by Monitor Audio, a company with a 30 -year reputation in building high -end loudspeakers, the i -deck retails at a price starting at $349.



The product will be featured in the November/December issue of Tech Living Magazine, which will be distributed at the EHX Fall 2005 to be held November 7 -11 in Anaheim, CA.
