WiSA @ CES 2019

WiSA is neat tech. So I always make a point to put them on the list of groups to meet with at CES. There wasn’t much new this year; the chips still top out at a Dolby Atmos unfriendly channel count. Although as a “better” alternative to a soundbar (i.e good in a good/better/best) for the vast majority of consumers […]

SVS SB-4000 13.5″ 1200W Sealed Box Subwoofer

SVS unveiled the SB-4000, PB-4000, and PC-4000 4000 series subwoofers back in November. These reference quality subs replace their popular 13-Ultra series, with a level of change which is quite dramatic from the previous generation. Alterations were made to the cabinet and 13.5” driver, but the electronics received the most benefit with the introduction of a 50MHz Analog Devices Audio […]

CES 2018 – Axiim & WiSA

It would be impossible to tell the WiSA and Axiim stories separately for CES 2018, so we are going to have to combine the two here. From a straight technology perspective, not much seems to have changed with the WiSA standard. Aside from Axiim there have only been some minor changes to the available consumer hardware. Although some major brands […]

CES 2018 – SVS

I wasn’t surprised at all that SVS puts on a good audio demo. Naturally both the SB-4000 and Ultra 5 speaker system I got to listen to briefly sounded great. But, I was not prepared to as impressed as I was by their “coming soon” Prime Wireless DTS Play-Fi enabled speaker.   The speaker works as a single, or can […]

CES 2018 – Fraunhofer & Sennheiser

One of the great things about actually going to CES, is that you get a chance to explore a little; and sometimes experience new and interesting things before they make it to market. The MPEG-H demo at the Fraunhofer booth was a perfect example of this. For those who are unfamiliar with it, MPEG-H is a modern object based audio […]

Axiim announces “WM Series” WiSA speakers

If the idea of a wireless AVR+speaker system from Axiim sounds interesting to you, but were waiting for something a bit grander/larger/towery than what they’ve had on offer so far… The wait is over, for pre-order anyway with the just announced WM Series. The spec’s look interesting and I would expect performance to be a step up from the existing […]

SVS Elevation speakers reviewed at High Def Digest

SVS’s Elevation speakers are an interesting option for building out a Dolby Atmos setup because of their unique shape. This is the first review I’ve seen, and there weren’t any major suprises (read they did well). With both Dolby Atmos & DTS:X becoming a semi-regular feature for new Blu-rays and, even more common, Ultra HD Blu-rays, it makes sense that […]
