KEF WIRELESS SPEAKER SYSTEM WINS 2007 EXC!TE AWARD

Wireless Home Audio System Presented with Prestigious Custom Retailer Award

MARLBORO, NJ – September 17, 2007 - KEF, the British manufacturer of world-class high-end speakers, has added another award to its roster of accolades with an EXC!TE Award for the KEF Wireless Speaker System from Custom Retailer Magazine. The EXC!TE Awards honor products that best exemplify the excitement and growth of the custom installation and consumer electronics industries. Winners are chosen by Custom Retailer’s Editors and Contributors, as well as selected retailers and industry observers.

“We are truly honored to have received this recognition from Custom Retailer Magazine,” said Alec Chanin, president of KEF America. “The KEF wireless system is a tremendously exciting product and continues our tradition of offering innovative, sophisticated, and décor-friendly solutions that deliver the 3D sound and stunning realism that are our trademarks.”

The engineers at KEF set out to eliminate one of the most frustrating necessities in consumer electronics – the speaker wire. Too often a challenge for homeowners reluctant to compromise their room‘s décor with unsightly cables running across the floor to the rear speakers, the KEF wireless system utilizes proprietary technology to deliver CD quality audio without the burden of drilling holes through the walls or tripping over long cables.

The KEF Wireless Series has been designed to fit a variety of applications and is offered in three flexible configurations to make surround speakers wireless. The KEF “Universal Wireless” system (two receivers and a transmitter, $599.99) can transform any traditional speaker system into a wireless setup. A KEF wireless kit (KHT5005.2W) has been specifically designed to fit the KHT5005.2 speakers, so existing owners can upgrade their current setups to wireless (two receivers and a transmitter, $599.99). Finally, consumers can purchase a complete KHT5005.2 5.1 Wireless Speaker System [KHT5005.2W Wireless Kit and the KHT5005.2 Speaker System, including the HTB2 subwoofer, for a total of $2,599.99 (sold separately)]. All versions of KEF Wireless are now shipping nationwide.

In order to achieve robust audiophile-grade sound, KEF has developed a leading-edge 2.4GHz wireless transmission technology that uses the most advanced error-protection and sophisticated adaptive frequency-hopping to ensure an interference-free signal. This proprietary technology is pre-emptive and will change channels automatically to a pre negotiated frequency (within the best available band) before any errors start to occur. CD quality audio won‘t be affected by microwave ovens, cordless phones or LAN routers. Homeowners have the flexibility of placing their rear speakers anywhere they want as well as moving them to different locations if desired.

• KEF‘s Wireless Speaker System is the recipient of a 2007 Exc!te Award from Custom Retailer Magazine.
