Streetheart Provides Pro-Grade SKAA Wireless Audio and is 100 Percent Bluetooth® and WiFi Free…Making it the Ideal Solution for Portable DJ Set-Ups and Other Pro Audio Mobile and Studio Applications
EDMONTON, Alberta, Canada, Feb. 1, 2022 – Eleven Engineering, Inc. (elevenengineering.com), a market leader in semiconductor products for wireless audio for professional, home theater, multi-room, portable, 12 Volt (car, truck, motorcycle, power sports, marine) and gaming applications, is proud to announce the launch of the new Streetheart SKAA Pro® receiver. Now accepting preorders and shipping in March 2022 with an MSRP of $249.99 USD, Streetheart is the perfect wireless option for DJs and others in the pro audio community.
“Streetheart works with all SKAA and SKAA Pro transmitters and all SKAA Nadja hubs, and is the perfect companion to the Dani SKAA / SKAA Pro transmitter,” explained Rex Whitehead, Eleven Engineering executive vice president, sales & marketing. “Streetheart provides Pro-grade SKAA wireless audio and is 100 percent Bluetooth® free and 100 percent WiFi free…making it the ideal solution for portable DJ set-ups and other pro audio mobile and studio applications.”
The Streetheart SKAA / SKAA Pro dual-mode receiver has a 50 meter range, Burr Brown DACs, balanced / unbalanced line level outputs and headphone jacks and is designed specifically to upgrade virtually any piece of sink-side pro audio gear to SKAA / SKAA Pro wireless. It is perfect for upgrading amplifiers, powered speakers, and wired headphones to lightning-fast SKAA wireless.
“One of the principal disadvantages of using traditional wireless audio solutions in a pro audio setting is inherent latency issues and navigating through an abundance of wireless traffic,” added Whitehead. “SKAA’s low latency ability is something that Bluetooth and WiFi audio-based solutions cannot accomplish for many reasons. However, there are even more demanding applications, such as live performance (DJ) that require even lower latency. This is where SKAA Pro takes over. Streetheart is ideal for replacing long XLR or TRS cable runs as it has up to a 50-meter reliable indoor range with the included +2 dBi antenna (note that your actual range will depend also on the antenna implementation in the transmit-side device).”
Streetheart receives two discrete audio channels and outputs them on four .25-inch jacks (two output jacks per audio channel), feeding up to four signal-hungry 19-inch rack amplifiers (any brand) from a single Streetheart receiver. It feeds all headphones having 32 ohms impedance or higher, two pairs of headphones at a time, making it the perfect solution for creating a wireless headphone cue mix system.
“Need to add an extra pair of monitor speakers to the ‘band room’ in your studio?” Whitehead explained. “Upgrade a pair of Focal, Dynaudio, Adam, Genelec, KRK or Yamaha powered monitors with a single Streetheart to fill that remote room with low-latency audio from your control room. Love your Mackie, JBL, EV, Alto or QSC powered PA speakers? Convert them to lightning-fast SKAA wireless by adding Streetheart. Love your Soundboks Gen 3 speakers (with SKAA built in) but want to add SKAA wireless capability to your older Soundboks Gen 2 speakers or want to add a battery-operated wireless subwoofer to your Soundboks network? Just add a Streetheart.”
By using the level control knob to turn down the blistering output of Streetheart, you can feed consumer-grade gear such as bookshelf speakers or your home theatre system, as well.
Additional features and specifications include:
- 15-hour run time via internal rechargeable Li-Ion battery
- Proper +16 dBu output levels
- Feed up to four Streetheart receivers from any SKAA Transmitter (at 36 ms latency)
- Feed up to two Streetheart receivers from any SKAA Pro Transmitter (at 19 ms latency)
- Pad & headphone switches
- 30-step local volume control for all four outputs
- Local Mute control for all four outputs
- Supports SKAA differential mode transmitters
- SKAA Bond Button and Bond Indicator enable all of SKAA’s Bonding functions
- Charges from any USB power source Fast charging is supported when a 2A (or better) capable USB power adapter is used
- Auto powers off
SKAA is the new wireless HiFi audio standard developed by Eleven Engineering, Inc. SKAA transmitters work with iOS & Android mobile devices, Mac & Windows computers, televisions, and just about any product with a line output or a headphone jack. SKAA is also available as a built-in technology not requiring an external transmitter in purpose-designed partner products, which are featured at SKAA.com. In environments laden with heavy Wi-Fi and Bluetooth traffic, SKAA navigates through these hostile environments with best-in-class reliability. SKAA also allows for uninterrupted audio signals which are delivered with the highest sound quality to all speakers without the latency that is inherent in other wireless solutions.
