American Technology And Carver Corporation Collaborate On Home Audio System Using HyperSonic Sound Technology

Agreement Expected To Result In Licensing Of Technology For Revolutionary Audio Products Capable Of Generating Sound In Mid-Air, Without Using Loudspeakers

American Technology Corporation (OTC: ATCO) and
Carver Corporation (NASDAQ: CAVR) announced today
that in anticipation of a formal license agreement they have
entered into a collaboration agreement on the development of
a high-quality home audio sound system using customized
Carver high-fidelity audio components and employing
American Technology's innovative HyperSonicT Sound
(HSST) reproduction technology.

HyperSonic Sound is an entirely new method of audio
reproduction whereby sound is generated directly in mid-air,
without the use of loudspeakers. The technology uses
ultrasonic waves that interact in space to generate and place
full-spectrum audio. Since none of the bulky,
distortion-producing elements of conventional speakers are
used, sound quality is no longer dependent on speaker size.
HSS represents a new paradigm in the generation of sound.

Jim Croft, vice-president of research and development for
Carver Corporation stated, "HSS is an elegant new
technology that is already achieving significant performance
advancements that are impossible with conventional speaker
systems. We have explored many audio technologies
including HSS-like systems, but the advancements
accomplished by the ATC team to make this technology
realizable is a real breakthrough in sound reproduction."

Carver has successfully discovered and developed new
technologies that show their potential to dramatically
improve the audio listening experience, starting with the
Magnetic Field amplifier and Sonic Holography, and later
expanding into innovative technology improvements
involving FM reception, CD playback, sound field control,
LightstarT power amplification and high performance ribbon

"If these developments can be advanced to commercial
production, they will solve the long standing problems that
plague current loudspeaker systems, to the extent that HSS
technology may replace conventional loudspeakers as we
know them," continued Croft. "Carver intends to contribute
to the completion, optimization, and commercialization of the
technology and expects to be on the leading edge by being
the first to introduce consumer audio products based on
HyperSonic Sound."

Elwood Norris, inventor of HSS and director of ATC stated,
"Carver has a superior reputation and is a long-time,
recognized leader in audio innovation. Through this
collaboration they are again showing they have the vision to
recognize and develop innovative audio technology."

Norris added that ATC engineers will work with their Carver
counterparts to develop a marketable high-end HSS system.
"Carver's team has unparalleled experience in the art and
science of audio reproduction," added Norris. "As our
collaboration continues to bear fruit, we anticipate it will lead
to licensing of our technology by Carver and the introduction
of truly unique audio products for the consumer market."

Consumer audio is not the only application of HyperSonic
Sound. It also has uses in home and mobile systems,
multimedia, cinema, stadiums and concert halls. The noise
cancellation niche is another area currently under study, as
ATC pursues its strategy of applying for patents covering
broad aspects and uses of its proprietary HSS technology.

For more than 15 years, Carver Corporation has been one of
the most recognized brands in consumer audio. The
company designs, develops, manufactures and markets
high-fidelity home audio components to the mid- to
high-end audio entertainment systems market. Carver's line
of consumer audio products is carried in a broad range of
audio outlets nationwide, including Circuit City. Key
products are produced in the U.S.A. at Carver's advanced
facility in Lynnwood, Washington. See

American Technology Corporation is a San Diego-based
electronics company specializing in the development,
manufacture and marketing of leading-edge proprietary
electronic products and acoustical technologies. ATC
invented, developed and sold patented EarPHONET
speaker/microphone technology being used in telephone,
computer and cellular applications. ATC has also innovated
and is marketing a highly successful line of FM and AM
miniature radios for today¡s mobile lifestyle. For more
