Design conscious AV lovers will welcome recognition of System Audio’s amazing legend 7.2 silverback wireless speakers by EISA, the Expert Imaging and Sound Association of sixty technology magazines, websites and social media commentators from 29 countries. The global forum has honoured the extraordinary silverbacks with its ‘Wireless On-Wall Speakers of the Year’ award. The citation says “by integrating amplification, DSP and a wireless module based on the hi-res-capable WiSA platform, System Audio’s passive legend 7.2 loudspeaker is transformed into something unique in its ‘silverback’ guise. On-wall installation means this slim cabinet won’t clutter up an interior, while also giving an acoustical boost to its pair of 5in bass/ mid drivers. Wired playback remains an option, but marry the speaker to System Audio’s optional Stereo Hub and it becomes easy to stream music via AirPlay, Bluetooth, Chromecast or Spotify Connect. This compact box also offers built-in room correction to improve sound performance, and a plethora of inputs for external sources – all without a loudspeaker cable in sight!”
