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 […]

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 […]

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.

More details about Axiim have come out

More details about Axiim’s wireless home audio solution have come out ahead of CES. The more important is that the “AVR” + speakers will leverage WiSA (a good thing IMO) and they are planning a paid ($1500) BETA program that you can sign up at the website.

WiSA @ CES 2015

Creating a new standard for anything is hard. For a market as diverse as home audio, I can only imagine how difficult it is to get OEMs to collaborate, let alone agree on a wireless standard that lets end users build best-of-breed systems according to their needs – instead of playing to the vendor’s desire to lock them into their […]
