EDMONTON, Alberta, Canada, August 24, 2018 – SKAA will be rocking the show floor during CEDIA 2018.
Eleven Engineering, Inc. (www.elevenengineering.com), a market leader in semiconductor products for wireless audio for home theater, multi-room, portable, professional, 12 Volt (car, truck, motorcycle, power sports, marine) and gaming applications, is proud to announce that its SKAA-enabled Atlantic Technology products will be on hand during CEDIA Expo 2018, held in San Diego from Sept. 6-8 at the San Diego Convention Center, booth # 4347.
“The industry is changing, and wireless is no longer just for streaming background music from one lonely speaker per room,” explained Rex Whitehead, Eleven Engineering Executive Vice President – Sales & Marketing. “Customers shouldn’t be required to switch technologies when they change the application from just background music to, for example, watching Netflix or using headphones. Those days are long gone and customers’ expectations are much higher now. They demand extreme flexibility and more ways to use their products. When you consider the many and varying ways someone wants to use their speakers, SKAA is the only logical wireless solution as its flexibility sets it apart from ‘ball and chain’ WiFi-based solutions.”
With an eye towards a high-performance wireless eco-system in the home, Atlantic Technology is showcasing exciting new SKAA-enabled products at CEDIA Expo 2018. This includes its Gatecrasher3 soundbar / subwoofer package, FS-252 active bookshelf speakers, STA-200 200-watt 2-channel amplifier, and Model FS-H582 high-performance headphones.
“With Atlantic Technology’s reputation for great sounding home theater loudspeakers, we are confident that these new SKAA-enabled products will receive a truly fantastic reception at CEDIA,” explained Atlantic Technology National Sales Manager Mike Miller. “The pairing of our products with a top-shelf wireless option is a no-brainer for those that want rock solid reliability and HiFi quality from their audio systems. We are also pleased to have Eleven Engineering personnel in our booth during the show to discuss SKAA’s many advantages.”
When you peel back the layers, traditional Wifi is subpar, or even non-existent, in seven key areas of modern wireless HiFi audio categories. “SKAA is superior to WiFi in every conceivable category that matters,” Whitehead continued. “It is highly flexible as it is also compatible with any brand, any product, anytime, anywhere, with rock solid reliability, great range, and CD-quality sound. That’s why we are excited to partner with Atlantic Technology, and present the benefits of SKAA and Atlantic’s great products during CEDIA.”
Whitehead added, “The SKAA-enabled amp is very cool as it can make any passive speaker system a SKAA wireless speaker system. Already own a great set of passive speakers that you love? No need to replace them…just add the Atlantic Technology SKAA-enabled amplifier and you are ready to rock. It is ready to receive your content wirelessly from any audio source using a SKAA transmitter, such as streaming music from your computer, gaming console, TV, or your mobile device. The amp provides plenty of clean power to make your existing speakers sound incredible.”
Whitehead explained that the bookshelf speakers, Gatecrasher3 soundbar, and amplifier are also perfect to use with any device with BT. “Since they both incorporate Eleven’s Nadja module with a Bluetooth onramp, they can be used with any mobile device even without a SKAA transmitter. Bluetooth is ubiquitous so we embraced it as another audio source, creating the world’s best networked Bluetooth with all speakers tightly synced. Your Bluetooth source has never sounded better and you could never create a Bluetooth sourced, perfectly synced, multi speaker system without SKAA wireless technology.”
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. You can even feed SKAA speakers and headphones from any studio recording interface with a Toslink (digital optical) or S/PDIF output. Most of 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 Wifi and Bluetooth traffic, SKAA navigates through these hostile environments with best-in-class reliability. SKAA also allows for uninterrupted audio signals that are delivered with the highest sound quality to all speakers without the latency that is inherent in other wireless solutions.
