Emerson Radio to Launch Line of iPod Compatible Audio Products for 2006

PARSIPPANY, NJ -- (MARKET WIRE) -- November 14, 2005 -- Emerson Radio Corp. (AMEX: MSN) announced today that it is launching a complete line of iPod compatible audio products for 2006 that will greatly expand the capabilities of the popular digital players.

The new Emerson product line includes clock radios, portable boomboxes, home audio systems and other consumer electronic devices. Each of these products will employ a custom-fit "docking station" to afford consumers the convenience of simultaneously recharging their iPods, while playing them through their new Emerson appliance for a high quality sound experience.

"The iPod is a very popular device that we can capitalize on by bringing additional flexibility and new uses with our innovative line of compatible products," said Patrick Murray, President of Emerson Radio's consumer electronics group. "The play list of favorite music that used to be limited to ear buds or headphones can now fill a room or backyard for all to hear and enjoy."

"Based on the feedback that we have received from our retailers, and the increasing popularity of the iPod, we believe that our new products will represent a strong and profitable growth category for the foreseeable future," added Murray.

Emerson will begin shipping initial products in January 2006 and retail sales are expected to begin shortly thereafter.
