Press Release Body = SANTA ANA, Calif., Sep 14, 2006 (BUSINESS WIRE) -- SRS Labs
(SRSL), a leading provider of surround sound, audio and voice technologies, today
announced the launch of the new SRS Audio Sandbox(TM) (SAS) for the PC. The SAS
software delivers compelling surround sound to consumers who are seeking enhanced
audio while experiencing any music, movie, or video game content on their PC.

The SRS Audio Sandbox software was designed recognizing audio has become more
important to consumers as many people use their PC for entertainment, both at home
and on the road. With the SAS, users can customize their audio experience with the
option to select the preferred SRS Labs patented technology base upon content (i.e.
music, movie, video or game), or choose from an array of music presets in the
sandbox (i.e. rock music, classical, jazz, country, etc.). There is also an
easy-to-use interface which allows users to further personalize their acoustic
preferences with multiple settings for different playback environments (headphones,
desktop, laptop and monitor speakers). Coupled with these features is a sleek
spectrometer interface design that displays energizing sonic-like pulses when
playing audio.

The software restores the clarity of vocals and high-frequency sounds that otherwise
can sound \"muffled\" because of data loss caused by compression in audio formats. The
SRS Audio Sandbox also widens the optimal listening area by expanding the audio
field in both the horizontal and vertical planes and uses SRS patented
psychoacoustic technologies to make the ear perceive maximum bass without distorting
or overdriving computer speakers and headphones. With a center control feature,
users can perfect the balance of sound by using a virtual \"zoom\" lens to dynamically
extract and position the dialog in the foreground or background of the audio mix.

The SRS Audio Sandbox allows users to take advantage of surround content regardless
of their speaker arrangement and ensures that sound quality will not be diminished
by the physical limits of speakers or low-quality sound cards. For users that have a
5.1 or 6.1 surround sound configuration, the SAS creates true multichannel surround
sound from any audio source, including stereo and mono. Conversely, for those
computer setups commonly using only two speakers, the SAS takes multichannel content
and uses a virtualizer to place phantom speakers around the room, providing a
realistic and enjoyable surround sound experience.

\"SRS Labs is dedicated to introducing complete, customizable surround sound audio to
strengthen PC users\' multimedia experience,\" said Tom Yuen, Chairman and CEO, SRS
Labs. \"As the popularity of PCs as entertainment devices increases, so does the
demand for enhanced audio to ensure the best experience. With the SRS Audio Sandbox,
consumers receive the highest quality audio experience at an extremely reasonable

The SRS Audio Sandbox comes with a free trial period, which can be easily converted
to a permanent registration upon trial completion. It is available at and other leading download websites. After the trial, the
software cost is $19.95.
