Enclave Audio, a manufacturer dedicated to designing and engineering immersive wireless audio systems for home entertainment environments, previewed their new wireless speaker systems at the Nationwide Primetime technology retailers event last month. The Enclave CineHome II and CineHome PRO 5.1 channel surround sound systems leverage WiSA wireless audio technology.
“The explosive proliferation of smart TVs, streaming appliances, and gaming consoles brings into the consumer living room a virtually unlimited catalog of multi-channel content at the push of a button. With that comes the increased appetite for the complete multi-channel audio experience,” said Rob Jones, Enclave Audio COO and co-founder. “Soundbars, while convenient to setup, simply don’t pass the test when it comes to delivering that true, immersive surround sound experience that consumers crave. These new products fulfill that craving through ease of setup, affordability, and performance that only a separates-based home theater can deliver. Retailers now have the opportunity to increase their bottom line through the ability to offer their customers a turnkey multi-channel audio solution that is affordable, sets up simply in minutes, has no speaker wires, and appeals to a wide consumer audience of movie enthusiasts, music lovers and gamers alike.”
The Enclave Audio portfolio consists of the CineHome II and CineHome PRO wireless multi-channel surround sound speaker systems. Both systems leverage technology from WiSA LLC, the Wireless Speaker and Audio Association, founded by Summit Wireless Technologies, which has created a standard for high-definition, multi-channel wireless audio. As a result, the CineHome II and CineHome PRO speaker systems setup in minutes.
Enclave operates on a discrete wireless network exclusive to the audio system and supports uncompressed 24-bit, 96KHz distributed audio with extremely low latency and less than 1 microsecond of synchronization between speakers. The result, according to Enclave Audio, is a dynamic, high-definition audio experience across a 360-degree field of sound that instantly enhances any viewing experience as the listener is enveloped in a sphere of sound. Paired beautifully with any TV, Enclave empowers retailers to capitalize on trending market opportunities with audio systems featuring the latest in wireless audio technology and connectivity specifically designed to heighten any at-home entertainment experience.
“When we first introduced the CineHome system in 2016, we exceeded all expectations for wireless sound quality in a sub-$1,000 surround sound system,” Jones added. “With CineHome II and CineHome PRO, we’re ready to delight and surprise the market with a consumer-friendly multi-channel wireless speaker solution that brings performance, aesthetics and competitive price points to fill a gaping void in the retail audio marketplace.”
According to Tony Ostrom, president at WiSA Association, all WiSA Certified components are engineered to work together seamlessly. “With membership spanning across top consumer electronics brands, the WiSA Certified and WiSA Ready standard represents an opportunity for retailers to offer products they know will be highly compatible while enabling the highest audio resolution possible for a wide array of home entertainment environments.”
The CineHome II system will have a retail price of $999 MSRP and the CineHome PRO system for $1,499 MSRP. Dealer programs are available
