FINAL SOUND EARNS ETL LISTED MARK FOR PRODUCT SAFETY

Final Sound 90i, 150i, and 400i Panels Pass Rigorous Product Safety Testing and Achieves Certification; Final 300i, 600i, and 1000i Testing Under Way

CEDIA 2006, DENVER, CO — September 16, 2006 — Final Sound, a full-line manufacturer of the world’s lightest and flattest high-definition speakers for home theater enthusiasts and audiophiles, today announced its 90i, 150i, and 400i Electrostatic speaker panels have passed its pre-market product safety testing regimen by Intertek ETL SEMKO, a global, independent third-party testing lab and certification agency.

As evidence of its compliance to standard for Audio/Video and Musical Instrument Apparatus for Household, Commercial and Similar General Use (ANSI/UL 60065 7th Edition 2003 Rev: 2004/04/16) and the Standard for Audio, video and similar apparatus–safety requirements (CAN/CSA-C22.2 No. 60065-03), 90i, 150i, and 400i Electrostatic speaker panels will bear Intertek’s proprietary and universally accepted ETL Listed Mark, a requirement of products being sold in U.S. or Canadian markets.

Intertek’s ETL Listed Mark is one of many product certification marks (such as the UL or CSA marks) that demonstrate compliance to national consensus standards. The ETL Listed Mark is commonly displayed on product packaging and the product itself to demonstrate compliance to buyers, specifiers and consumers.

Required by the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA), manufacturers are required to submit their products to a Nationally Recognized Testing Laboratory (NRTL) — recognized by OSHA — for evaluation and certification to consensus standards. Intertek is an NRTL in the U.S. and an accredited Testing Organization (TO) and Certification Body (CB) by the Standards Council of Canada. Its ETL Listed Mark is recognized by Authorities Having Jurisdiction (AHJs) such as fire marshals, building inspectors, and code officials throughout North America.
