QRS Music Technologies, Inc. Unveils New Manhattan Piano as Part of Story & Clark Signature Series Collection

Distinctive Style is Geared Toward Metro Lifestyles

NAPLES, Fla.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--QRS Music Technologies, Inc. (OTCBB: QRSM - News), a leader in the design, manufacture and distribution of pianos, piano-based audio and multimedia products, music and piano accessories, today announced the introduction of The Manhattan, a piano uniquely suitable for metro lifestyles and in keeping with current home furnishing trends.

Manhattan Grand Piano Illustration“QRS is firmly established as a technology leader and innovator; our next goal is to begin positioning Story & Clark as a leading style authority in the piano market,” said Tom Dolan, president and chief executive officer. “This may sound like an odd concept to some dealers, but innovative designs and fashions are what continue to breathe new life and sales into many industries from cars and computers to furniture and home improvement; style is an important factor.

“Price is a key consideration,” continued Dolan. “There are some beautiful and unusual pianos out there but they are all over $60,000. This is not where the bulk of the sales in this industry are. Our pianos are all under $20,000 and are designed to compliment today’s lifestyles and home décor.”

The minimalist yet elegant Manhattan piano is ebony with birdseye maple accents and will be introduced as a 4’11” baby grand. The new Signature Series Collection features styles, scale designs and specifications determined exclusively by and for QRS. The Signature Series Collection will be unveiled at the NAMM show in January 2008 in the QRS booth 321.
