SVS today announced announced a $199 accessory that transmits a wireless audio signal to any powered subwoofer or speaker. The new product called the SVS SoundPath Tri-Band Wireless Audio Adapter sends a LFE or full-range stereo signal at 16-bit/48KHz up to 130-feet line-of-site. For improved fidelity without dropouts, it claims ultra-low latency and auto-switching between three bands for use in crowded wireless signal areas where single-band wireless transmitters are prone to interference.
Because the SVS SoundPath Tri-Band adapter transmits a true Left/Right stereo signal at full-range frequency response (6 Hz to 20kHz +/- 0.5 dB), the adapter also wirelessly connects a stereo speaker zone and powered wireless surrounds in home theater applications. Up to three adapters can be paired simultaneously to create a multi-room distributed audio system.
The SoundPath Tri-Band Wireless Audio Adapter reduces cable clutter and expands subwoofer placement options without sacrificing sound quality. Placement is a critical factor in subwoofer performance and the new adapter creates more possibilities to optimize in-room output.
“As people add more devices to their homes, interference becomes a real issue. The Tri-Band technology our engineers deployed makes wirelessly connecting a subwoofer or powered speakers completely impervious to interference, while reducing cable clutter. It really solves a lot of problems when setting up a home theater or audio system.”Gary Yacoubian, SVS President and CEO
Setup of the adapter is said to be simple and quick. All current SVS subwoofers like the 3000 Micro feature USB inputs on the rear panel for powering the SVS SoundPath Tri-Band Wireless Audio Adapter’s receiver. Once both transmitter and receiver are powered, simply connect the transmitter to an AV receiver, TV audio output, or other audio source via RCA interconnect. Then, connect the receiver to a subwoofer, powered speaker, or loudspeaker amplifier via RCA Interconnect. The transmitter/receiver arrive pre-paired so wireless signal transfer begins within seconds.
