CME, based in China and distributed in the US by Yamaha Corporation of America, announces two new audio peripheral products for 2006. The Matrix X five channel mixer and Matrix Y headphone amp add functionality to music production and performance systems with flexible combinations of connections and features.

“CME products always offer both incredible cost performance and unique market driven features” states Athan Billias, Director
of Marketing for Technology Products at Yamaha. “The Matrix Y’s talkback feature and the incredible flexibility of inputs and
outputs on the Matrix X are perfect examples of how CME’s products always set themselves apart from the competition.”

The Matrix Y is a simple solution to a common problem – the inability to communicate while wearing headphones. This four
channel expandable headphone amp includes the unique addition of a built-in talkback microphone. The talkback mic is fed into
all headphone outputs, making it easy to communicate when recording, during playback, in a presentation or a demonstration –
anywhere where multiple people are wearing headphones. In addition to balanced stereo inputs and separate volume controls on
each headphone output, the Matrix Y includes balanced stereo outputs, allowing multiple units to be stacked for larger

The Matrix X is a mic and guitar preamp with a built-in flexible 5 channel mixer designed to add a variety of inputs, outputs
and level controls to a music production system. A combo jack with a +48V phantom powered microphone preamp or Hi-Z
input effectively adds a microphone or guitar to a synthesizer, digital piano, or recording set up. An auxiliary set of balanced
Stereo inputs and outputs can be used to integrate the Matrix X into any system with its own stereo ins and outs including
sound cards, USB Stereo I/O, sampling synthesizers, digital pianos and other mixers. An extra set of balanced stereo inputs
make this a versatile 5 channel mixer for personal recording set ups. Dual headphone outputs with separate volume controls
and a dedicated volume control on the balanced stereo outputs make the Matrix X a perfect control center for all your different
monitoring needs. The fact that the outputs are balanced even allows the Matrix X to be used as a Direct Box for both live and
recording situations where longer cable runs are necessary. The Matrix X was designed to be flexible enough to solve a wide
variety of different needs of the home recording environment in a single cost effective package. “It’s a $99 solution to a 1000
problems” added Billias.

The Matrix X and Matrix Y will be available in February, 2006 for $109.99 MSRP (each).
