You’ve read about WiSA speaker technology and how it facilitates wireless transmission of hi-res audio with super low latency and near perfect sync between speakers, but is it all that it’s cracked up to be?
Ongoing demonstrations are available through a hands-on display that lets shopper see and hear how WiSA-enabled products work together to deliver sound wirelessly. A list of participating locations, which include Best Buy/Magnolia Home Theater stores, can be found here.
WiSA-enabled products are designed to work together seamlessly, regardless of brand.
All 2019 model-year NanoCell 4K and 8K TVs from LG are WiSA Ready, meaning they can connect wirelessly to WiSA Certified speakers from Klipsch and others via a $230 Axiim LINK USB transmitter, which supports multichannel surround-sound systems with up to 7.1 channels. In addition to LG TVs, the Axiim LINK is designed to work with the Xbox One game console and PCs running Windows 10.
All models in Klipsch’s Reference Wireless speaker line are WiSA Certified. The series comprises the RW-51M powered bookshelf speaker ($799/pair), RW-34-C center-channel speaker ($574), and RW-100SW subwoofer ($689). The speakers can be mixed and matched in configurations ranging from a simple two-channel stereo setup to a full-blown 7.1-channel home theater.
The Wireless Speaker and Audio Association is supported by more than 60 consumer electronics brands, including Denon, Harman, GoldenEar Technology, JBL, Klipsch, LG, Marantz, Pioneer, Onkyo, Polk, THX, and Xbox.
