Matrix Offers Exclusive Wire Technology in New System Lineup

Barrie, Ontario, CA — September 1, 2004 — Matrix Audio Designs, manufacturer of high-fidelity audio distribution systems, is incorporating its groundbreaking wiring platform into its latest lineup of audio distribution products. The Series 4, Series 6, and Series 8, Matrix Audio’s new flagship collection of multi-source controllers, features the company’s proprietary Speaker Wire Technology (SWT), which enhances sound quality and system control while enabling extensive future upgrades. With its ability to incorporate preexisting audio systems’ wire, SWT also provides the simplest high-fidelity audio solution for retrofit installations. The new Series lineup is now shipping.

“We developed Speaker Wire Technology as a complete solution to the outstanding challenges of installing a simple, reliable, and powerful multi-room system,” said Dan Saso, president of Matrix Audio Designs. “For years, installers have proven our technology’s reliability, providing their customers with rich, dynamic sound and precise source control in nearly every installation environment. SWT‘s flexibility and superior retrofit applicability also make our new Series a highly efficient and affordable answer for jobs with changing specifications or an existing wiring platform.”

Speaker Wire Technology enables both sound and control signals to be transmitted with only four-conductor speaker wire. This allows the Series controllers to operate without additional control wire and makes installing the system in retrofits easy, especially if they have been prewired with separate control wire. Preexisting volume controls can be replaced by Matrix Audio Series keypads and controllers to provide users with full control of the new system and all connected audio sources.

Speaker Wire Technology’s design architecture supports web-based software upgrades while dynamically detecting field-installable options. The Series 4, Series 6 and Series 8 operate fundamentally as a “Client Server” with a communication protocol offering dynamic macros, and an intelligence that automatically distinguishes between pause and mute among sources.
