NOBLE FIDELITY NAMES CHRIS DIXON COMPANY NEW SOUTHERN CALIFORNIA REPRESENTATIVE

Chris Dixon, owner of Chris Dixon Company (CDC)

RENO, Nev., Jan. 29, 2014 – Noble Fidelity (www.noble-fidelity.com), the company known as the first in the U.S.to be 100percentEU RoHS compliant, manufacturing sustainable “Green” (eWaste) In-Wall/Ceiling loudspeakers, is proud to announce that, effective immediately, Woodland Hills, Calif.-based Chris Dixon Company has been named as its new Southern California representative.

“With the recent launch of our award-winning mk ll version of our most popular loudspeaker – the L-85– as well as our other exciting products and new sales and marketing initiatives, we needed to expand our reach into the vitally important Southern California market,” explained Greg Ford, Principal of Noble Fidelity. “Chris Dixon and his staff have a proven track record in this territory, and they have an outstanding line card. We are proud to have the Chris Dixon Company join the Noble Fidelity team and we are excited to get started with them.”

Considered one of the highest performance loudspeaker manufacturers in the custom installation sector of the consumer electronics industry, Noble Fidelity is also considered to be one of the most “Green” in its product design, and implementation. Founded in 2006 in Carson City, Nevada, Noble Fidelity offers customers and dealers alike, audiophile performance from In-Wall/Ceiling loudspeakers together with unparalleled customer service. The company works with dealers, consumers and the design community with acoustical help, CAD drawings and beyond, so that customers capture the best and most tangible virtues of their investment: value, fidelity, ease of acquisition, ease of implementation and ultimately, genuine and enduring satisfaction.

Chris Dixon, owner of Chris Dixon Company (CDC), said that with Noble Fidelity, he saw a great opportunity to provide a higher quality, moderate cost, Home Theater and custom integration/whole house line of loudspeakers for his dealers without being tied to the local large house distributors, thus eliminating the undermining issues associated with such. Current CDC partners include Triad Speakers, Genelec, AcousticSmart theater designs and seating, Audio Design Associates, Terra, and Anthony Gallo Acoustics.

“There are many loudspeaker manufacturers in our industry working to create a foothold or maintain their market share with our dealers,” explained Dixon, a 35-year industry veteran with more than 10 years experience operating his own company and more than 15 years as a manufacturer’s representative, as well as being a CEDIA and IPRO member. “Many of my dealers are looking for an alternative to their existing whole house and/or A/V loudspeaker products that no longer provide them with the performance or customer service they had grown accustomed to. With our economy exhibiting signs of recovery over the past year and our Southern California dealers showing a greater consistency of acquired work, Noble Fidelity has great opportunity to penetrate the Southern California market. Need I mention Noble Fidelity’s ‘No Internet/Online’ sales allowed? We welcome Noble Fidelity into our line-up.”

STREAMZ INTRODUCES WORLD’S FIRST SMART STREAMING HEADPHONES; FIRST TO INTEGRATE MUSIC PLAYER, STREAMS PANDORA®, TV, GAMES, MOVIES

Salt Lake City – December 20, 2013 – STREAMZ™ (www.streamzmedia.com), a Mozaex® spin-off company, announced today it has released the world’s first smart streaming headphones called STREAMZ™. STREAMZ are breakthrough headphones that allow you to play music and audio from multiple sources, including onboard stored music, streaming online radio, streamed phone music, plus audio from your TV, movie, and game player.

The company will be demonstrating STREAMZ and their BLUWAVS 7.1 HDMI Surround headphones during the 2014 CES Expo, held in Las Vegas from January 7–10, booth #54009 (inside the iLounge of the LVH Hall).

STREAMZ Headphones Offer Simplicity and Value with Multi-Device Playback

With its built in Android processor, WIFI, Bluetooth, and storage, STREAMZ simplifies and enhances the entertainment experience when enjoying streaming or stored music, movies, games and TV shows.

“When it comes to entertainment there is only one thing more valuable than free, and that is simplicity,” said STREAMZ CEO Douglas Kihm. “You no longer need to bother with a separate player since it’s all built inside. Many people don’t want the hassle of carrying, connecting, and draining the battery of their phone or music player. STREAMZ replaces multiple headphones so that you can enjoy all of your entertainment from any device with one simple-to-use pair of headphones.”

First Headphones to Incorporate Both Auto Detect WIFI and Bluetooth

STREAMZ makes listening to any source of music and audio fast and easy. STREAMZ incorporates both Smart WIFI and Bluetooth interfaces that auto detect and connect to your WIFI internet hotspot, a Bluetooth device such as a Smartphone, or with an optional module your Bluetooth enabled AVR receiver.

Built-In Music Player, HIFI DAC, and Two-Way Speakers Deliver Unmatched Sound Quality

With STREAMZ, people can now enjoy the ultimate in simplicity and uncompromised sound quality.

STREAMZ are based on patent-pending Smart Headphone technology that uniquely delivers higher fidelity music and audio than traditional headphones. STREAMZ are the first headphones to incorporate a music player, a 48 kHz/16 bit CD quality Digital Analog Converter (DAC) plus individual 3 Watt vibration drivers and 160 mWatt dynamic amplifiers.

With its built-in DAC and AMP, STREAMZ delivers CD quality sound with optimum dynamic range, equalization, and amplification which results in incomparable clarity and fidelity. The two vibration speakers uniquely deliver high power and low frequency range audio that you can literally feel.

Since most phones and mobile music players have sub-par quality DACs and amps, they are unable to play true FLAC, ALAC, and WAV CD quality music without adding cumbersome external components. To address this problem, the company built the finest quality audio components inside the headphones.

Unique High Powered Vibration Speakers Reduce Headphone Pressure and Discomfort

Traditional headphones require an uncomfortable amount of pressure on your head and ears to achieve optimum sound quality. STREAMZ’s vibration speakers achieve the same or better sound quality than traditional headphones with little or no head pressure being applied, which results in exceptional comfort.

The four speakers are arranged as bi-amped, two-way speakers with two vibration speakers, and two 50mm dynamic speakers. STREAMZ has soft over the ear leather cushions with collapsible frames and are designed for active, mobile use.

STREAMZ Patent Pending Technology Addresses a Unique Fast Growing Premium Niche Market

STREAMZ addresses an un-served market in the “premium” ($100+ USD) headphone niche, where people want simpler “in-line play controls” to listen to their music, wherever they are and from any device.

The market for headphones continues to experience high growth, especially in the premium sector. Global headphone sales in 2013 were $7B (USD) with a growth of 20 percent per year. According to The NPD Group’s Retail Tracking Service, “U.S. sales of premium stereo headphones ($100+) grew 25 percent in units in Q1 2013 year-over-year, accounting for 95 percent of the revenue growth for the total headphone market.”

According to NPD , “more than one-in-three premium buyers cited in-line play controls as ‘extremely’ or ‘very’ important in their decision to buy…”. As Ben Arnold, director of industry analysis at NPD explains, “Consumers are looking for ways to get the best audio experience no matter where they are or what device they are using.” Continued Arnold, “In fact, features designed to enable easier mobile playback are impacting premium headphone purchase decisions more heavily.”

STREAMZ meets these needs with the ultimate in simplicity, in-line controls, device compatibility and quality.
An SDK and a Kickstarter STREAMZ for App Developers Will Soon be Announced

“STREAMZ is 30 years in the making since founding my first company in 1983,” explained Kihm. “We are all visionaries of sorts here at STREAMZ, with a passion to invent and share something amazing with consumers and other developers who share in our desire to design products that will make people’s life simpler and more entertaining. To that end we plan to release a STREAMZ App Software Developers Kit (SDK) on Kickstarter along with a specially priced development model of STREAMZ. We anticipate that the SDK will spur the development of dozens, if not hundreds, of new STREAMZ Smart Headphone Apps, including voice activated Apps and interactive social and informational Apps.”

North American Pricing and Specifications (Contact STREAMZ for International pricing):

STREAMZ Headphones – $549 MSRP USD

Android 1.6 Ghz dual core processor, WIFI 802.11 b/g/n, Bluetooth 3.0, 8GB upgradeable to 40GB with micro SD RAM card, two vibration and two dynamic speakers, 48kHz/16 bit DAC, 2 channel 3 Watt amplifier and 2-channel 160 mWatt amplifier, microphone input jack, rechargeable battery, and adapter.
