EDMONTON, Alberta, Canada, & Copenhagen, Denmark, Aug. 28, 2019 – Third time is definitely the charm.
Eleven Engineering, Inc. (www.elevenengineering.com), a market leader in semiconductor products for wireless audio for portable, home theater, multi-room, professional, 12 Volt (car, truck, motorcycle, power sports, marine) and gaming applications, is proud to announce that the much anticipated New SOUNDBOKS performance portable wireless speaker, the third in the SOUNDBOKS line which now includes SKAA technology that enables multiple speaker networking, is now shipping. The New SOUNDBOKS is available for $999 USD at www.soundboks.com.
“We have finally created the speaker we’ve always wanted,” explained Jesper Thiel Thomsen, CEO of Copenhagen, Denmark-based SOUNDBOKS. “Over the past four years we’ve been integrating community feedback with the vision of the speaker we have always wanted to build. The result is the New SOUNDBOKS. We were very focused on creating an unmatched sound experience, and multiple speaker networking and battery life were critical for that result. We are really excited to bring this to our community and lead a new category of networked Bluetooth® performance speakers.”
Made possible by SKAA technology, the completely redesigned New SOUNDBOKS features the all new TeamUP mode that allows for wireless networking of up to five New SOUNDBOKS speakers.
The New SOUNDBOKS also includes multiple other upgrades, such as the Earthshaking 126 dB delivered by two powerful high efficiency Infineon Merus amplifiers, pro panel inputs, and a removable steel grill for easy customization. Extremely portable and easy-to-use, the New SOUNDBOKS weighs just 34 pounds and is the only wireless speaker with a removable battery that can last up to 40 hours on a single charge.
“The New SOUNDBOKS is loaded with features, but what really sets it apart from the competition is the ground-breaking TeamUp feature made possible by SKAA technology,” explained Rex Whitehead, Eleven Engineering Executive Vice President – Sales & Marketing. “SKAA includes a multi-speaker networking technology called Nadja, which allows up to five New SOUNDBOKS speakers to be wirelessly driven by one Bluetooth source, all playing in perfect sync. While others are forced to connect multiple speakers via wires, that’s not the case with the New SOUNDBOKS. Just feed the New SOUNDBOKS an audio source, and let SKAA do the rest. If you think one New SOUNDBOKS speaker is loud, just wait until you hear five that are wirelessly networked via SKAA.”
Every New SOUNDBOKS speaker includes SKAA wireless and Bluetooth wireless, as well as multiple wired aux inputs. SKAA is a rich ecosystem of dozens of products. Since the New SOUNDBOKS is 100 percent compatible, it will work seamlessly with all pre-existing and future SKAA compatible devices, and the SKAA ecosystem as a whole.
SKAA is the new wireless HiFi audio standard developed by Eleven Engineering, Inc., and the ideal choice to take the New SOUNDBOKS performance speakers to the next level. 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 that are delivered with the highest sound quality to all speakers without the latency that is inherent in other wireless solutions.
SKAA is available as a built-in technology not requiring an external transmitter in purpose-designed partner products. 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.
