LAS VEGAS, Nev., January 5, 2017 – Eleven Engineering, Inc. (www.elevenengineering.com), a market leader in semiconductor products for wireless audio for home theater, multi-room, outdoor, portable, professional, 12 Volt (car, truck, motorcycle, power sports, marine) and gaming applications, is proud to announce that it will feature numerous live SKAA® Wireless Audio demos during its annual Product Showcase, held in Las Vegas, Nev. from Jan. 5-8 at The Palazzo Hotel & Resort in suite # 49-911 (adjacent to The Venetian/Sands Expo complex). Eleven Engineering will have its full complement of sales, marketing, and engineering teams present during the show and plans to unveil a few new product surprises for those who visit its suite.
“We will conduct live demos for the Strawberry 3 Amplified SKAA® Wireless Audio Receiver Module, as well as our Diz, Talisa and Akiko transmitters,” explained John Sobota, Eleven Engineering CEO and director. “We will also feature our full line of SKAA transmitters, receivers, and accessories during the showcase. SKAA is highly flexible as it is also compatible with any brand, any product, anytime, anywhere, with rock solid reliability, great range, and CD-quality sound.”
SKAA is ridiculously easy to use…all compatible products are ready to play right out of the box with no pairing required. “To show this impressive flexibility, we will also host numerous partner companies in our suite during the showcase, including Merus Audio,” said Sobota.
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 that are delivered with the highest sound quality to all speakers without the latency that is inherent in other wireless solutions.
To address the recent news that Apple has unveiled the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus with no 3.5 mm headphone jack, Eleven Engineering will also discuss its SKAA Diz solutions for quality-centric headphone brands during the showcase. Diz has been designed and engineered for those brands wishing to enter the market with wireless headphones that take advantage of Apple’s Lightning high-quality digital audio.
“This is why we created the SKAA Diz transmitter for Lightning,” explained Rex Whitehead, Eleven Engineering director of sales, North America. “Diz takes full advantage of Lightning’s high-quality audio and wirelessly transmits that pristine digital stream to speakers and headphones built to the SKAA standard. Products using Lightning require Apple’s MFi approval, but the already-proven Diz transmitter makes this process quick and painless.”
Brands wishing to ship wireless Lightning headphones can move to market very quickly by taking advantage of Eleven’s headphone reference designs and Eleven’s already-proven Diz transmitter. Diz is designed to work with iPhones, iPods and iPads with a Lightning connector and running iOS 7 or later. Diz is designed to transmit audio to all SKAA-compatible receivers, including speakers and headphones.
“Also, look for Diz-based products which let you enjoy your existing favorite headphones with your brand new iPhone 7, which are coming soon,” Whitehead added.
Ideal for speaker systems across multiple platforms, whether it be home theater, outdoor, Pro MI studio, and DJ, the Strawberry 3 module is the complete package. “Strawberry 3 integrates the Ginseng SKAA receiver, the world-class eximo® digital amplifier from Merus Audio, and a full-featured audio DSP, creating a small and powerful amplified wireless receiver for passive speakers. Strawberry 3’s audio output is BOM selectable for either 40W or 70W per channel. Eleven Engineering’s proprietary adaptive frequency hopping protocol uses a narrow footprint in the 2.4 GHz band allowing seamless co-existence with other devices and offering unparalleled Quality of Service.
“Strawberry 3 is a fully equipped module ready for easy implementation into wireless speakers for multiple applications,” Whitehead continued. “We purposely sought out the industry’s leading digital amplifier maker to complement our industry leading wireless technology. Based in the birthplace of digital amplification, Denmark-based Merus Audio fills that role perfectly.”
Explained Martin Bruun Helms, Merus Audio Director, Global Sales, “eximo® is our multi-level switching audio amplifier technology that is available as single-chip amplifier solutions for a wide range of audio applications. eximo® offers the most energy-efficient audio amplifier technology available, enabling significant extension of battery lifetime, drastically reducing heat dissipation, and operates without a heatsink. Merus brings an ideal amplification technology to Strawberry 3.”
