ATON DLA Speaker Level Audio Router Series Wins Exc!te Award From Custom Retailer Magazine

LEXINGTON, Ky. — Oct. 3, 2007 — ATON, a premier provider of home audio and video signal routing and distribution products for the custom installer market, today announced that its Dynamic Level Adjustment (DLA) series of speaker level audio routers received an Exc!te Award from Custom Retailer magazine. The award was presented at the CEDIA EXPO 2007 show in Denver on Sept. 6.

The Exc!te Awards recognize custom electronics products for their outstanding design, engineering, innovation, and market presence. Award winners are chosen by the overall custom electronics community, including custom retailers, installers, and integrators, in addition to the Custom Retailer staff. As an Exc!te winner, ATON was included in a videotape of the awards ceremony that will be available for viewing on www.customretailer.net, and the ATON DLA speaker level audio router series will be featured in the magazine‘s October Exc!te Awards issue.

Designed for multiroom routing and control of speaker level audio, the DLA series is the world‘s first to offer both radio frequency (RF) and infrared (IR) control in a speaker selector. Easily connected to home theater and stereo receivers, as well as receiver second zone outputs, DLA routers can direct audio to as many as six pairs of wired speakers throughout the home. With ATON‘s groundbreaking RF and IR control options, installers can provide their customers with a luxury result that they might not have expected in their price range.

The two-, four-, and six-room DLA speaker level audio routers offer multiple-room volume adjustment with the ability to preset a “sound scene” in addition to power source monitoring for maximum power to all speakers. The industry‘s first RF control option allows for time-saving installations, and ATON‘s in-room IR receivers or touchpads provide multiple controls for the DLA routers as well as all other connected audio sources, such as CD players and radio tuners.

Unlike the basic impedance correction used by typical speaker selectors, the patent-pending DLA technology utilizes a logic circuit that actively monitors how many rooms are on, along with their respective volume levels, and delivers maximum power to each room while at the same time protecting the speakers and amplifier from damage. Each DLA router features an electronically controlled potentiometer, built with the highest grade materials available to ensure super-flat frequency response and high power (125 W) handling.

The optional ATON RF remote, the industry‘s first RF controller for a speaker level audio router, provides wireless control from anywhere inside or outside the home up to 200 feet away and enables easier installation. With the RF remote, users can turn on all rooms at their preprogrammed volume levels with the touch of a “scene” button, adjust volume and mute settings in each room, and turn all rooms on or off. The DLA RF remote is ideal for outdoor applications in which wireless control is essential.

The DLA series is available immediately to installers from distributors nationwide. More information is available at www.atonhome.com.
