Monitor Audio's WS100 wireless multimedia speaker system proves that you needn't work too hard for great sound.
If you're one of the millions who store and play music from a desktop, laptop or smart phone, Monitor Audio has designed the WS100 wireless audio system with you in mind. It comprises a pair of stylish cube speakers with amps and wireless receiver on-board. The matching, compact monitors, just 5" in dimension, are precision engineered to deliver clean wideband lossless audio from any computer in seconds. Simply position the speakers, plug-in the USB transmitter and play CD quality sound wire-free.
Universally Easy, Expertly Conceived
The WS100 monitors employ custom-designed tweeters and mid-bass drivers based on the C-CAM transducers used by Monitor Audio's flagship hi-fi speakers. C-CAM is our proprietary driver material, derived from the aerospace industry. It's extremely light, but also very rigid, and so is able to reproduce best-in-class highs and dynamic lows accurately and effortlessly.
A further crucial element in the WS100 chemistry is Monitor Audio's use of SKAA™ wireless transmission. Integrated with each DAC is a specialised wireless receiver, employing a very high quality digital audio protocol to transport audio from source to destination without compression. Operating in the 2.4GHz band, it protects the lossless signal from other networks with a patented Walking Frequency Diversity™ (WFD) technology, which uses sophisticated and seamless channel-hopping to eliminate clicks, pops and dropouts.
Plug and Play Everywhere
Built for peerless ease of use, the WS100 operates with plug and play simplicity. Power up the speakers with a single mains connection and plug the SKAA transmitter dongle in the nearest USB. When in range of the transmitter (up to 10 metres) as many as four WS100 systems will receive the same source.
The stylish WS100 remote, which is shaped to fit snugly in hand, will control power, play/pause, track up/down volume and input selection.
