-- Now Available at Best Buy; Bluetooth-Enabled System Delivers Powerful Audio Experience Right Out of the Box; Ultra-Compact Alternative to Soundbar --

New York, NY, November 15, 2012 — Boston Acoustics, Inc., a world-renowned manufacturer of innovative home entertainment solutions and high performance loudspeakers, is bringing the gift of great surround sound to holiday shoppers this year with its ultra-compact SoundWare XS Digital Cinema Surround Sound System. The latest addition to the company’s award-winning SoundWare speaker family, the system provides a powerful “right-out-of-the-box” audio experience for movies, music, and games, featuring the critically acclaimed surround sound experience of the company's TVee soundbars, combined with the distinctive design of the SoundWare speakers. The SoundWare XS Digital Cinema is now available at Best Buy outlets across the country.

Perfect Solution for Holiday Gift Givers: An Alternative to Large System or Soundbar

Boston Acoustics’ smallest and most compact surround system ever, the Digital Cinema is comprised of two ultra-compact 2 ½-inch SoundWare XS satellites, each measuring less than 4 inches, plus a compact 8” 100-watt (250-watt Peak) powered subwoofer. It’s an ideal alternative to a large system or soundbar, especially suited to consumers who want to do away with bulky “box type” speakers and enjoy immersive, room-filling cinema-like sound in a stylish, compact system.

Mitch Nollman, Boston Acoustics Vice President and General Manager, noted: “With our new Digital Cinema system, Boston Acoustics is giving holiday shoppers an opportunity to give the gift of truly immersive and expansive surround sound audio performance. While we recognize that a significant number of consumers elect to use the stand provided by their TV manufacturer to position their flat panel TV on top of their audio furniture. It can be difficult to place a soundbar in this scenario without partially obstructing a clear view of the screen from some angles. Our Digital Cinema solves this problem by giving you complete control over where you place the SoundWare XS satellites thereby avoiding any obstruction. Music fans will love the enhanced stereo imaging possibilities.”

Here’s a quick look at some of the features and technologies the new Digital Cinema shares with both Boston’s TVee Soundbar systems and the broad range of SoundWare speakers:
