SANTA ANA, Calif., Jan. 6 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- SRS Labs (Nasdaq: SRSL), the industry leader in surround sound, audio, and voice technologies, announced today that the MyVolume Adaptor, an intuitive volume leveling solution powered by the revolutionary SRS TruVolume(TM), is now available for purchase directly from SRS Labs. The MyVolume Audio Leveling Adaptor enables consumers who don't currently own a TV equipped with SRS TruVolume to enjoy the same benefits - home theater entertainment free from distracting volume spikes and dips.


"Through the addition of the new MyVolume Adaptor powered by SRS TruVolume, every television viewer is now able to enjoy watching TV without the annoying volume spikes," said Allen H. Gharapetian, Vice President of Marketing for SRS Labs. "Consumer studies have shown that a leading TV viewing complaint is sudden volume spikes and erratic volume fluctuation when programming goes into or out of commercial breaks or when channel surfing and now, for the first time, this problem can be resolved in TVs without built-in TruVolume support."

SRS TruVolume utilizes advanced, patent pending technology proprietary to SRS Labs to provide listeners with a consistently comfortable volume level, thus enabling a more enjoyable entertainment experience. TruVolume incorporates advanced multi-band analysis that simulates how people perceive volume shifts, as well as discrimination technology that identifies appropriate points for action. As a result, TruVolume eliminates annoying side effects that plagued previous volume leveling solutions, operating unobtrusively and effectively. Listeners simply set the volume to their preferred listening level, sit back and relax.

The MyVolume adaptor featuring SRS TruVolume is a standalone volume-leveling unit manufactured by Cypress Technology. Through the addition of MyVolume adaptor, users can upgrade any television system by using this remarkable device as an audio-bridge, connecting between the cable or satellite box and a TV, AV amplifier or Sound Bar. By adopting a simplistic, compact design and universally available audio connectors, the processors can be easily installed and stored out-of-sight behind any TV to maintain the streamlined appearance.

In order to cater to all regional markets, the MyVolume Processor is available in three unique models:

  • Analog / RCA model - DCT-6S for $99.99 MSRP
  • HDMI model - DCT-8S (HDMI cable included) for $199.99 MSRP
  • SCART model (available soon)

To celebrate the adaptor's CES 2010 launch, the HDMI and RCA versions are immediately available for the limited time purchase price of $49.99 (RCA) and $99.99 (HDMI) directly from SRS Labs at
