Decent home theatre systems typically consist of five or more speakers and a subwoofer or more. This usually requires an amplifier and wires snaking out to each speaker as well as a connection to your TV or home theatre projector. Enclave Audio has two wireless audio systems that forgo the wires and offer surround sound with a simpler setup. While not new, the wireless audio systems have been around for over a year, and the Enclave Audio CineHome II and CineHome PRO are now available in Canada through Amazon.
The two systems offer 5.1 stereo surround with three front speakers, two rear speakers, and a wireless subwoofer. The speakers connect to the CineHub wireless audio transmitter features Dolby Audio, DTS Digital Surround, and Uncompressed PCM. The transmitter has eARC, ARC, Optical, Bluetooth, and Analog inputs.
“Enclave is the first speaker company to bring the powerful combination of THX Certification and WiSA compatibility to a 5.1 wireless home theater system. Each year, we see video technology improve – from HD to 4K to 8K and beyond – but audio technology has been lagging. With the explosion of consumer access to multi-channel audio content, we are planting the stake to say our entertainment deserves immersive audio. We’re restoring the integrity of the home theater experience by delivering customers their favorite movies, shows, games, and music, the way it was intended it to be heard, without the complicated installation processes of the past.”Rob Jones, CTO for Enclave Audio
