Gateway offers 1,000-watt sound for $1,000

The Gateway KAS-303 Home Theater System — which today takes its place at the top of the Gateway home theater system line-up — delivers stunning clarity backed up by 1,000 watts of power.  Priced at just $999(1) including the 6.1 receiver, progressive-scan DVD player, center channel speaker, five satellite speakers and subwoofer, it offers more power than most systems  costing twice as much.
   
Also today, the company expanded its LCD TV line to include a compact 13-inch version and a 30-inch 16:9 wide-screen model, making Gateway the premier destination for digital TVs.
   
Unlike traditional retailers and typical direct companies, Gateway has the ability to showcase home theater systems, thin TVs and other CE devices in its nationwide network of 190 stores.  This enables consumers to evaluate how the products perform and work together before making a purchase decision. Gateway’s consumer research during the past six months shows that roughly 85 percent of consumers expect to purchase CE products at a retail store, demonstrating the company’s distinct advantage with its multi-channel direct model.
   
The KAS-303 Gateway Home Theater System and new LCD TVs build on Gateway’s outstanding track record in home entertainment.  Less than a year after launching its first thin television, Gateway, Inc. has become America’s top seller of plasma screen TVs to consumers across all product sizes, surpassing Sony, Panasonic, Samsung and other traditional industry leaders, according to Gateway’s own figures.
   
“Gateway’s home theaters and full line of market-leading digital TVs bring a stunning cinematic experience to the comfort of home,” said Matt Milne, vice president of digital solutions, Gateway, Inc.  “Available at half the price of most competitive offerings, the powerful, 1,000-watt sound system creates a first-class entertainment experience without emptying our customer’s wallets.”

    KAS-303 Home Theater System

The KAS-303 Gateway Home Theater System(TM) uses digital amplification for maximum sound augmentation and quality.  A progressive-scan DVD player and 600-watt 6.1 receiver combined with a 400-watt Hsu Research subwoofer, make experiencing live concerts and movies so realistic, customers will feel like they’re part of the action.
   
The intuitive design makes this home theater easy to set up and use.  It offers up to 19 digital signal processing modes for the clearest possible signal and audio quality. Five satellite speakers are small but powerful and designed to surround the room with dynamic audio without looking obtrusive.  Ventriloquist(TM) center channel works with the subwoofer to produce superior mid- and deep bass performance and incredibly natural sound.  Integrated Dolby Digital Decoder, DTS Decoder and Dolby Pro Logic II intensify special effects for movies and music. To eliminate picture-distortion, all speakers are video-shielded for placement near the television.
   
The Gateway home theater system connects quickly and easily to a range of video sources including component, s-video and composite video. It comes with a pre-programmed remote control, 40 pre-set options for AM/FM stereo channels as well as headphone jacks, so movies and music can be played without disturbing others.

    Gateway Expands LCD TV Line to Include 13- and 30-Inch Versions
   
Gateway continues its tradition of delivering high-performance TVs at an exceptional value with thin LCDs that save space. From 13- to 50-inches, Gateway’s complete line of digital TVs fit a variety of needs. A table stand is included, while users can hang the TV on a wall via optional mounting brackets — including ones specially made for kitchen cabinets.(3)

    13-Inch LCD TV
   
The ultra-thin design of the Gateway(TM) 13-inch LCD TV makes it perfect for consumers who need an extra TV that fits in an ultra-tight space such as a kitchen counter, bathroom, dorm room or RV.
   
The brilliant, high-definition screen with a wide viewing angle features a 640 x 480 resolution, a contrast ratio of 300:1 and a 450 cd/m2 brightness rating for stunning clarity and an incredible picture anywhere.  A built-in amplifier and speakers provide excellent stereo/SAP/mono sound. Audio-visual inputs include s-video, composite and audio. The 13-inch Gateway(TM) LCD TV will be offered on Oct. 16, 2003.

    30-Inch Wide-Screen LCD TV
   
Gateway’s brilliant 16:9 wide-screen LCD TV fits neatly in tight spaces and is ideal for those who desire a stylish set that enhances the room’s decor. This 30-inch LCD TV features high-definition clarity and a wide 170-degree viewing angle for a dramatic cinematic experience.  A contrast ratio of 350:1 and a 450 cd/m2 brightness rating enhance the visual impact.
   
Leveraging advanced digital image processing, Gateway’s LCD TV delivers bright, flicker-free pictures. This new set has HDTV signal compatibility via YPbPr, DVI or VGI and a built-in digital visual interface (DVI) eliminates the need for an analog-to-digital conversion.  It also comes with a Gateway OFR universal remote control that supports up to 8 devices.  A wide range of video inputs — DVI, YPbPr component video, s-video, composite and RGB — maximize viewing options.
   
The Gateway 30-inch Wide-Screen LCD TV with a 1280 x 1024 resolution will be available at Gateway(R) stores nationwide on Oct. 16.

    Limited Warranty, Service and Options
   
Consumers interested in Gateway’s new home theater and LCD TVs can get the advice they need from highly trained professionals at Gateway stores nationwide.  Gateway stands behind these home entertainment products with a one-year limited warranty and offers a wide range of extended service and support plans.
