November 18, 2019

SAN JOSE, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Nov 18, 2019--

WiSA® LLC, the Wireless Speaker and Audio Association, comprised of over 60 leading consumer electronics brands, and founded by Summit Wireless Technologies (NASDAQ: WISA), today announced shipment of the Enclave Audio® CineHome II and CineHome PRO audio systems – two new WiSA Certified™ audio systems that deliver a high-definition, wireless, immersive 5.1 surround sound experience for the home.

“The innovative CineHome products from Enclave deliver full room, immersive sound at breakthrough price points,” said Tony Ostrom, president at WiSA Association. “Not only do they rival soundbar prices, they are just as simple to set up.”

These WiSA Certified products leverage cutting-edge wireless audio technology and connectivity as a complete 5.1 home theater audio system that sets up as quickly and easily as a soundbar, but provides the unmatched audio performance of a multi-channel surround sound system. Designed to immerse the listener in a sphere of surround sound, each CineHome speaker system consists of three wireless front speakers (left, right, and center), two wireless rear speakers (left and right), and a wireless subwoofer.

Unencumbered by the constraints of speaker wire, both the CineHome II and CineHome PRO surround sound speaker solutions feature quick set up. The systems pair and sync automatically to deliver a high-definition audio experience across a 360-degree field of true wireless surround sound by leveraging WiSA technology, a worldwide standard for high-definition, multi-channel wireless audio. With WiSA compatibility, the CineHome II and CineHome PRO speaker systems can be configured to work with any WiSA Certified transmitter or WiSA Ready™* devices, including the 2019 LG OLED and NanoCell TVs. When bundled with the recently launched Enclave Audio CineHub, the CineHome PRO speaker system delivers the first THX® Certified and WiSA Certified home theater system.

“With the explosion of multi-channel content in the consumer living room, WiSA technology allows Enclave to deliver home theater solutions that offer consumers a choice of accessibly priced, true 5.1 experiences no soundbar can match,” said Rob Jones, CTO for Enclave Audio. “Leveraging WiSA technology, the Enclave CineHub wirelessly auto-discovers and auto-pairs with Enclave speakers and is compatible with any modern TV through a single cable connection – making complete 5.1 system setup achievable within minutes. For discerning ears that demand the best, the THX Certified, WiSA Certified configuration of the CineHome PRO system redefines wireless home theater as we know it.”

The CineHome II surround sound speaker set is available starting at $999.99 US MSRP. The CineHome PRO surround sound speaker set is available starting at $1,499.99 US MSRP. The Enclave CineHub is available starting at $149.99 US MSRP, but when bundled with a CineHome II or CineHome PRO speaker set, is available for $99.99.

All WiSA Certified and WiSA Ready components work together seamlessly to deliver wireless, multi-channel audio and authentic movie theater sound that immerses the listener into the middle of movies and video, music, sports, gaming/esports and more. As a result, consumers can expect an audiophile experience, but unlike traditional audio systems, setup is simple and takes just minutes, even for larger 5.1 and 7.1 systems.
