KEF Universal Wireless Speaker Systems Wins Award

Affordable System Transforms Standard Surround Speakers to Wireless Format

MARLBORO, NJ — July 26, 2007 — KEF, the British manufacturer of world-class home theater speakers has added another award to its roster of accolades with the 2007 Electronic House “Product of the Year” Award. KEF was recognized for its breakthrough Universal Wireless System, a simple plug-and-play wireless speaker kit, which converts virtually any standard speaker system into a wireless configuration.

“We are truly honored to have received this recognition from Electronic House magazine,” stated Alec Chanin, president of KEF America. “The KEF Universal Wireless System is the perfect addition to any home theater where consumers are looking for a stylish solution that eliminates unsightly cables and provides high-quality wireless surround sound with remarkable ease of installation.”

The engineers at KEF set out to eliminate one of the most frustrating necessities in consumer electronics — the speaker wire. Too often a challenge for homeowners reluctant to compromise their room’s decor with ugly cables running across the floor to the rear speakers, the KEF Wireless System utilizes proprietary technology to deliver CD-quality audio without the burden of drilling holes through the walls or tripping over long unsightly cables.

The KEF Wireless System, consisting of two receivers and a transmitter, has been designed to fit a variety of applications. In order to achieve robust audiophile-grade sound, KEF has developed a leading-edge 2.4GHz wireless transmission technology that uses the most advanced error-protection and sophisticated adaptive frequency-hopping to ensure an interference-free signal. This proprietary technology is pre-emptive and will change channels automatically to a pre negotiated frequency (within the best available band) before any errors start to occur. CD-quality audio won’t be affected by microwave ovens, cordless phones, or LAN routers. Homeowners have the flexibility of placing their rear speakers anywhere they want as well as moving them to different locations if desired.

Winning products were selected by Electronic House magazine editors based on reviews released throughout the year, product demos, installer feedback, innovative features and overall value. The winning products will be featured in the September issue of Electronic House magazine and at www.electronichouse.com.

Talking Points:
• KEF’s Universal Wireless System has been named “2007 Product of the Year” by Electronic House magazine.
• The Universal Wireless System has been designed to transform any traditional speaker system into a wireless setup.
• CD-quality sound via leading-edge 2.4GHz wireless transmission technology using advanced error-protection and sophisticated adaptive frequency-hopping ensure optimum sound quality.
