End of an Era for Altec Lansing Professional

Once the leader of the industry, Altec Lansing Professional is no more.

September 12, 2007

I regret to inform you that Altec Lansing Technologies has decided to exit the Professional Audio business. Although the Professional Division has been an important market segment, Altec Lansing and the parent owner, Plantronics, have decided to focus on the company's much more rapidly growing consumer businesses. Please note of the following:

• The limited manufacturer's warranty will be honored. Altec are making every effort to retain sufficient stock to cover the five year limited warranty on Altec Lansing Professional products.

• Should you have any near-term projects with Altec Lansing products, the remaining inventory is offered on a first-come, first-served basis. Once Altec have identified inventory that is in excess of their warranty requirements, a list will be generated for distribution with closeout pricing.

• Beyond that, Altec will work with you to cross-reference their product to another comparable source.

To contact Altec direct, dial 1-866-570-5702.
