New Orleans, LA — 7 January 2008 — Ace Bayou, the leading designer and manufacturer of sound furniture, will be unveiling its new X Rocker Pro-Series and X Rocker 4.1 chairs, the most innovative sound system chairs for gaming at the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in January. At the show, Ace Bayou will also be showcasing its extremely popular X Pedestal Wireless Home Theater Chair and Wireless Evolution Chair, all part of Ace Bayou’s Xfunctional platform of media furniture.

This line of high-quality, sophisticated sound-system-in-a-chair products seamlessly connects with the most trendy media devices such as an iPod, PS3, Wii, Xbox360, PSP, DVD players, offering users a new level of media immersion.

“What started with a handful of sound system rockers has now expanded into a full line of home furniture with high-quality, built-in sound systems from office chairs to desks and storage boxes,” said Rick Davis, Vice President, Ace Bayou Corporation. “Offering a surround sound experience and wireless capabilities is a significant milestone for our Xfunctional line and we are thrilled to be debuting these new chairs at CES this year.”

X Rocker Pro-Series
With a futuristic game inspired design, the new patented X Rocker Pro-Series provides a 4.1 sound system including four built-in speakers and a subwoofer. Offering brand new wireless capabilities, combined with Ace Bayou’s core AFM technology, the X Rocker Pro-Series offers a whole new media experience, doubling the power of Ace Bayou’s traditional X Rocker chair. The sleek X Rocker Pro-Series incorporates adjustable armrests and a padded headrest and allows users to daisy chain multiple chairs to each other, as well as to any of Ace Bayou’s new state-of-the-art sound furniture products, for the ultimate gaming experience.
