Announcing April Musics New Eximus Line: Where Audio and Aesthetics Take Center Stage



— New Reference-Quality Components Feature
Impenetrable Build and Impeccable Sound —

Las Vegas, NV, January 3, 2005 — With a design as forthright and bold as its sonic performance, the new Eximus line of reference quality audio components from April Music will debut in the United States this Fall.

“Eximus represents the ultimate statement of beauty for both the eye and ear,” said Simon Lee, president, April Music, Inc. “Its physical inspiration is derived from modernists who see a square as one of the most stable elements on earth, while the circuitry is literally among the finest available today.”

The Eximus series — featuring the T1 CD transport, DP1 DAC Pre-amplifier, and S1 power amplifier — was designed by Mr. Yu Kook-il, one of the leading industrial designers in South Korea, who, in turn, was inspired by the work of the artist Donald Judd. Like Judd, Kook-il adopted a “square on square” format based on four small squares around the four corners of

the large, square base. The Olive Black chassis is treated with a special anodizing process to repel erosion, with an overall build quality and attention to stability that, according to Lee, “…is like a Russian tank!”

Eximus sonics are as precise and accurate as the chassis are solid and strong. Priced well under the five-figure price tags of comparable components, each Eximus model is designed to reproduce the full range of the source recording, neither adding unwanted elements such as a false sense of “warmth,” nor removing any of the dynamics or imaging of a well-recorded piece of music.

The three Eximus models will be available in February 2005 at select specialty audio dealers throughout the U.S. Suggested retail price is $6,000 per component throughout the three-model line.
