CARSON CITY, Nev., Dec. 4, 2007 - Wisdom Audio (www.wisdomaudio.com), the leader in planar magnetic technologies with more than 85 years on -staff experience, is proud to announce that Audyssey Laboratories™ MultEQ® XT software has been incorporated into its SC -1 System Controller, part of Wisdom's recently launched Sage Series high end architectural and in -room audio systems that will be featured at the 2008 Consumer Electronics Show (CES), held in Las Vegas, Nev. from Jan 7 -10 at The Venetian, booth 30 -235.
Wisdom Audio offers several electronic components for the Sage Series, including the SC -1 System Controller, boasting an electronic crossover and acoustic room correction that incorporates Audyssey MultEQ® XT technology. It also includes selectable, RS -232 operable memory settings for optimized performance in varied acoustic settings for music and film environments. A PC -based installation application allows a professional installer to configure the SC -1 for a particular complement of Sage Series speakers in a given installation.
"When designing a high end audio system such as our new Sage Series, it is imperative that a room's acoustic signature not detract from the system's performance," explained Mark Glazier, Wisdom Audio president. "With the growing acceptance of higher quality multichannel systems, we think it is imperative to offer a sophisticated tool to optimize loudspeaker performance. Room correction has been a hallmark of Wisdom systems since 1996 and we are now pleased to collaborate with a partner to redefine our capabilities for the custom installation community. That's where Audyssey MultEQ® XT room correction system comes in. Incorporated into our new SC -1 System Controller, installers will now have the ability to utilize Audyssey™ technologies in order to optimize the performance characteristics of our new Sage Series speaker systems on a consistent basis, regardless of room acoustics."
When installed by a professional installer using Audyssey MultEQ® Pro software, the Sage Series loudspeakers and companion SC -1 has the capability to deliver the highest quality sound. Audyssey MultEQ® XT is the first technology to properly measure sound information throughout a listening area, and then combine this information to accurately represent the acoustical problems in the particular room. Based on these measurements, MultEQ® XT calculates an equalization solution that corrects for both time and frequency response problems in every seat. The solution provided by MultEQ® XT results in a listening experience unlike anything the listener has heard before. MultEQ® Pro takes up to 32 measurements around the listening area and uses high resolution equalization filters to correct room problems in both amplitude and time domains for both satellites and subwoofers. The implementation of the SC -1 System Controller incorporates MultEQ® XT technology in a 7.3 channel in, 14.3 channel out, biamped configuration.
"We are pleased to be working with Wisdom Audio," said Michael Solomon, CEO of Audyssey Laboratories™. "The combination of a highly -configurable system with the professional version of MultEQ® XT will be a very powerful tool for the home theater installer."
Initially, Wisdom Audio will bring to market four speaker configurations, ranging from 20 inches to 75 inches tall, each available as an in -wall, on -wall, or freestanding solution. Multiple center channels, a dual woofer in -wall sub enclosure, integrated Audyssey Laboratories™ room correction software, and dedicated electronics round out the new product offerings.
"The Sage Series with integrated Audyssey MultEQ® XT technology represents the next level in installed architectural loudspeaker systems for the custom installation community," said Tom Bohlender, founder of Wisdom Audio. "We could not be prouder than to partner with such a widely recognized leader and pioneer in acoustic correction technologies."
The Sage Series, which are available as in -wall, on -wall, and standalone models in order to offer even greater flexibility to the customer and custom installer, incorporates proprietary Wisdom Audio technologies that redefine form factor, high end performance, user experience benefits, realizable and consistent in -room acoustic results and installer/dealer installation/set -up benefits.
