Stack9 Raises the Standard for Home Audio/Video
With New Digital Media Systems

Stack9’s New Digital Media Systems Seek ISF Certification and Bring the Benefits of Windows XP Media Center Edition 2005 Technology to Using, Managing and Enjoying Home Entertainment

CES 2005, LAS VEGAS, Jan. 6, 2005 — Stack9 Systems Corp., an innovative technology company that builds and markets powerful, high quality, affordable whole-house entertainment and control systems, has announced a continuing commitment with Microsoft Corp. to deliver high quality Media Center PCs to consumers by obtaining Imaging Science Foundation (ISF) certification of its Digital Media System Series PCs, beginning with the Series 9100. Since 1994, ISF has provided comprehensive testing and certification of performance quality, and a publicly recognized logo program for high-end consumer electronics products that consumers identify with superior quality.

Stack9’s new Digital Media Systems — the 9100 Series, 9300 Series, 9500 Series and 9500Pro Series — are based on Microsoft Windows XP Media Center Edition 2005. The Digital Media Systems, introduced at CES, are easy-to-use components that allow consumers to simply and effectively manage entire libraries of digital movies, music, photos, CDs, digital video games and other digital video content, downloadable audio, radio, and TV and HDTV programs received off-the-air.

“Consumers are looking for solutions to ensure that they have the highest quality in their digital entertainment experiences,” said Bill Mannion, Director of Windows Consumer Marketing at Microsoft. “By receiving ISF certification, Stack9’s Series 9100 Digital Media System Media Center PC will offer consumers a solution that delivers amazing picture quality and a complete, integrated media experience.”

Stack9 Systems are available now from authorized Stack 9 dealers at suggested prices ranging from approximately $3,000 to approximately $15,000. They were seen at Booth 6818, Las Vegas Convention Center, South Hall 2, during CES.
