 DESIGN ACOUSTICS EARNS DESIGN AND ENGINEERING AWARD
 FOR NEW SPEAKER
 STOW, Ohio, June 17 /PRNewswire/ -- An independent panel of industrial designers and engineers, design academics and industrial design and consumer press journalists under the auspices of the Electronic Industries Association (EIA) selected the new Design Acoustics DA900 loudspeaker for the coveted "Design and Engineering Award '92."
 The DA900, an 8-inch three-way floor-standing loudspeaker, is part of the new Summit Series of loudspeakers, said to have been designed to fulfill the needs of both accurate audio reproduction and home theater. "Some key technical features in our best-selling line of high-value, high-performance Point Source(TM) Series loudspeaker systems were incorporated in the Summit Series models. Importantly, we were also able to incorporate new technology, ideas, features and forms," said Jackie Hebrock, director of product development for Design Acoustics.
 "Naturally, we are very pleased with this award from the EIA," said Peter T. Sabin, marketing manager for loudspeakers. "We view this as a validation of the design objectives of the DA900."
 The DA900 is said to break the barriers to accurate stereo imaging, achieve the performance demands of audio and video reproduction and fulfill the aesthetic requirements of home decor. The unique five-sided cabinet, with a very narrow front, is said to improve audio reproduction and to minimize visual distraction. All Summit Series loudspeakers employ a similar cabinet design.
 The DA900 is magnetically shielded for use anywhere in a home theater system, a technical feature shared by each model of the Summit Series. "We feel the growing interest in home theater justifies the inclusion of this feature. The end-user now has total freedom to place any of the Summit Series anywhere in the room, including directly against a TV or monitor," said Sabin.
 The DA900 will be available by fall 1992 and will have a suggested retail of $800 a pair. The two other speakers in the Summit Series are the DA1000, retail $1,100 a pair; and the DA800, retail $600 a pair.
