     The speaker system will retail for $199.99.  See http://www.hifi.com.

 (Nasdaq:   CREAF).
     "As more and more consumers embrace digital audio formats, we wanted to
 introduce a sound system that would let them transform their personal, digital
 music collections into a portable, group-oriented system," said Michael
 Sullivan, president of Cambridge SoundWorks.  "The PlayDock PD200 and the
 NOMAD Jukebox is part of a new breed of audio solutions -- digital stereo
 systems -- that will expand as a result of the growing demand and interest in
 digital audio."
     A "glove" securely attaches the NOMAD Jukebox to the top of the PD200. The
 digital stereo can then be easily carried from one location to another. The
 PlayDock PD200 houses three speakers -- left and right main speakers plus an
 extra bass speaker for wide-range sound. With the NOMAD Jukebox in place, the
 rechargeable battery housed inside the PD200 offers approximately ten hours of
 music.  The PD200 also comes with an AC adapter that will simultaneously
 recharge the NOMAD Jukebox and the PlayDock PD200 when connected.
     Consumers can find more information on the PlayDock PD200 at www.hifi.com,
