Boston Acoustics Announces June Shipping
Date for Groundbreaking Recepter Radio HD

Compact Stereo Table Radio Combines Digital HD Radio with Enhanced
Audio and Reception, New Features and The Boston Sound

NAB 2005, LAS VEGAS, April 18, 2005 — Boston Acoustics, Inc. (NASDAQ: BOSA), a premier manufacturer of high performance audio solutions for use in home music and audio-video systems, aftermarket and OEM automotive systems, and custom built-in audio systems, announced it will ship its pioneering Recepter Radio HD with digital HD Radio™ technology by iBiquity Digital in June 2005. Announcement of the quickly approaching date was made at the National Association of Broadcasters show, beginning here today.

The Recepter Radio HD is one of the first HD home radios to become available. A high-performance digital AM/FM table model, it delivers high-fidelity sound comparable to the finest radios ever made. Also included in the package will be a compact satellite speaker, allowing listeners to enjoy the Recepter Radio HD in true stereo.

Eagerly anticipated, the Recepter Radio HD broadens Boston Acoustics enormously popular Recepter Radio family. It features the dynamic HD Radio technology developed by iBiquity Digital Corp., and brings The Boston Sound™, long acclaimed for its accuracy, to a new audience of consumers.

“With demand for the Recepter Radio HD steadily building, new radio stations converting to digital every day, and with multi-casting very close to taking off, June is an ideal time to launch the Recepter Radio HD,” said Stephen Shenefield, Senior Director of Product Development, Boston Acoustics. “We’re very pleased to have developed the first tabletop HD Radio receiver available to consumers. It’s another Boston first, and one we’re looking forward to bringing to listeners of digital AM and FM radio.”

The HD Radio Promise
The Recepter Radio HD embodies the bright promise of HD Radio technology, which radically upgrades sound quality while providing new wireless data services by allowing digital broadcasts to be transmitted over existing AM/FM radio bands. HD Radio technology benefits listeners by generating audio quality similar to that of Compact Discs; enhancing sound fidelity and reception by eliminating static, hiss, pops and fades. In addition to regular analog and digital programming, stations will also offer Supplemental Program Services (additional digital audio programs) — a service that the Recepter Radio HD will seamlessly display. And, it can even display RBDS station information for non-HD broadcasts. A seamless conversion process lets broadcasters maintain the current dial positions of existing stations.

Listeners also benefit by the growing support of the nation’s major AM and FM broadcasters, which have recently reinforced their commitment to digital broadcasting. Building on the base of stations already broadcasting with HD Radio technology, many radio groups have aggressive plans to convert most major market stations over the next few years. As a result, consumers with HD Radio receivers will be able to hear many of their favorite AM and FM stations in unparalleled digital clarity.

The Recepter Radio HD Advantage
Purchasers of Boston Acoustics Recepter Radio HD will be among the first to enjoy radio’s next-generation sound. In addition to iBiquity’s HD Radio technology, the new Recepter Radio HD employs patented BassTrac circuitry to deliver bass performance out of proportion to its remarkably compact size. The Recepter is backward compatible with traditional AM/FM broadcasts, and maintains the same compact size, portability and overall appearance of the original Recepter Radio.

It also boasts a stereo input for iPods or other external sources, as well as a stereo headphone output. The headphone output doubles as a high quality line output, so the Recepter Radio HD can be connected to any component audio system as an HD Radio source.

The Recepter Radio HD includes memory tuning for up to 20 AM/FM presets in any order desired, and incorporates two independent clock alarms that can be set for waking up to music, a buzzer, or both. Snooze and Sleep functions are also provided, as is a battery backup that retains presets and time settings, even during a power outage.

Recepter HD listeners also benefit from The Boston Sound™, an acclaimed feature of all Boston Acoustics speaker systems. The Boston Sound reproduces music and movie sound with exceptional accuracy, delivering the music and sound effects that artists intend with a pure neutral tonal consistency that remains the same for all Boston Acoustics speakers, including the Recepter Radio HD.

Available in platinum finish, the Recepter Radio HD will be available in June from authorized Boston Acoustics dealers at a suggested price to be announced.
