SOUNDBOKS Features Wireless Audio Networking Made Possible by SKAA Technology
EDMONTON, Alberta, Canada, & COPENHAGEN, Denmark, Nov. 10, 2022 – 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 SOUNDBOKS’ acclaimed SKAA-enabled Wireless Performance Speaker product line is now available at SKAAstore.com, making the SOUNDBOKS (Gen. 3) and SOUNDBOKS Go available for the Canadian market.
“SKAA and SOUNDBOKS have always shared a symbiotic relationship, as they provide the vehicle and we provide the engine,” said Rex Whitehead, Eleven Engineering Executive Vice President – Sales & Marketing. “SOUNDBOKS is very focused on creating an unmatched sound experience usable anywhere in the world, including areas where there is no available WiFi network or electricity. As a result, multiple speaker networking and battery life were critical for that result, and this is an area where SKAA excels. Every new SOUNDBOKS speaker includes SKAA wireless technology, so it only made sense to offer them at SKAAstore.com. SKAA is a rich ecosystem of dozens of products for both the consumer and pro markets. Since SOUNDBOKS became 100 percent SKAA-compatible, starting with SOUNDBOKS (Gen. 3) and most recently the Go, they work seamlessly with all pre-existing and future SKAA compatible devices, and the SKAA ecosystem as a whole. We are excited to offer the latest SOUNDBOKS speakers to our Canadian customers through our website’s purchasing platform.”
With listeners in more than forty countries, SOUNDBOKS is a community-focused speaker innovator. The original goal of SOUNDBOKS was to design a speaker that would be loud, durable, and have long battery life. Today, the company is pioneering a new category of Wireless Performance Speakers, and with offices in Copenhagen and Los Angeles, they are working to create speakers, hardware, software, as well as unique, connective experiences for more and more audiences.
“SOUNDBOKS is a company driven by our strong connection to SOUNDBOKS owners and audio enthusiasts everywhere,” explained Jesper Thiel Thomsen, CEO of SOUNDBOKS. “SKAA has really helped us strengthen that connection. Our engineers have always championed the integration of SKAA because of its amazing performance and groundbreaking dedication to wireless audio—and our community of users have quickly become fans of SKAA as the tech behind our TeamUp mode that wirelessly and seamlessly connects up to five of our speakers for an unmatched music experience. SKAA has truly helped us evolve our Wireless Performance Speakers, and we are proud to partner with Eleven Engineering to offer SOUNDBOKS through the SKAAstore.com website. We hope all of our new Canadian customers will TeamUp and turn up!”
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.
Ever since SOUNDBOKS started designing and building speakers in 2014, the fast-growing Danish company has been making big sounds and bigger waves. From their category-defining speakers to their wildfire Kickstarter and an unexpected invitation to Y-combinator, SOUNDBOKS has consistently proved they’ve got something worth listening to.
Today, SOUNDBOKS teams in Copenhagen and Los Angeles are working to create speakers, hardware, software, and unique, connective experiences for audiences everywhere.
