Speakers can be a wonderful thing—if you have a place to put them. Those of you not willing to open the walls and/or ceilings are typically tethered to close proximity of your AV setup.
Well, Atlantic Technology wants to free up your speaker placement, with its new WA-5030 Wireless Transmitter/Amplifier System. The new 30-watt amplified wireless audio system is designed to drive a pair of speakers up to 300 feet away, all without having to run speaker wires.
For $399, you’ll get one WA-5030-r zone amplifier and wireless receiver and the company’s three-zone WA-50-t wireless transmitter, as well as a remote, a USB cable, and RCA input cables.
Just connect the transmitter to any RCA analog audio line outputs or a Mac or PC, via USB. From there, the system promises lossless, uncompressed CD-quality digital audio with a 48 kHz sampling rate over on the 2.4 GHz radio band. Atlantic Technology says that up to three WA-50-t transmitters and three receivers per transmitter can be used in a system.
Both the transmitter and the receiver have a three-position switch that assigns each pairing to either Zone 1, Zone 2, or Zone 3.
Atlantic Technology is selling the WA-5030 Powered Wireless Audio System now as a package. Of course, you can also add in additional WA-5030-r receivers, for $199 each.
