BARRIE, ONTARIO - February 1, 2006 - Matrix Audio Designs, a manufacturer of high -fidelity audio distribution systems for homes and businesses, today announced at Integrated Systems Europe (Booth J42c) the debut of its newest line of affordable speakers, the Matrix Audio Design EL -Series in -ceiling speakers.

Leading the industry in technical innovation, all Matrix Audio products support the company's proprietary Speaker Wire Technology™ (SWT), which enables the systems to be controlled over simple four -conductor wire eliminating the need for an additional control wire and making system installation in retrofits easy. Matrix Audio has also made system installation and control easier and more convenient with Matrix Stealth, a proprietary infrared receiver for the Matrix Delta system that eliminates the need for keypad controls. For the high -end Series 4, Series 6 and Series 8 controllers equipped with a network interface card, Matrix Audio's Mi -Control software enables system -wide control of the audio system through a network infrastructure.

About Matrix Delta
Matrix Delta allows users to control and distribute audio from as many as four sources, such as an AM/FM tuner, CD player, satellite radio, or MP3 players, to up to six "zones" in home or office environments. Available in four -zone (Delta 4) or six -zone (Delta 6) versions, Matrix Delta's standard features include four or six Delta navigation keypads, an RS -232 port, one preamp output, and an expansion port that will enable the easy integration of additional capabilities in the future. Available options to customize the system include an AM/FM tuner, numeric keypads for direct access control, LCD Touch Screen keypad, and the new extruded aluminum Delta remote control.

Matrix Delta utilizes a modular design that allows for future upgrades including the expansion of zones and the addition of tuners, keypads and remotes. USB and RS -232 ports enable installers to easily load firmware and software updates, and troubleshoot the system.

About C -Series Speakers
Designed from the ground up, Matrix Audio Design's flagship C -Series product family of in -ceiling speakers is constructed using the highest quality components available to deliver exceptional acoustical performance. When equipped with the optional SWT Speaker Module, the C -Series speakers give installers the ability to install Matrix audio distribution systems in rooms or zones where the installation of a keypad is not an option.

The new Matrix Audio C -Series product family of in -ceiling speakers includes:
• C:6 - 6.5 -inch Speaker
• C:6DT - 6.5 -inch Speaker with Dual Tweeters
• C:8 - 8 -inch Speaker
