“WiSA’s technology is the most important innovation for high-end audio in decades,” says Ole Witthoft, founder of System Audio. “It can be difficult for listeners to integrate premium sound experiences into their modern lifestyle and home decor, but WiSA and its interoperability standard present the necessary solution. We are proud of our new WiSA Certified Legend Silverback speakers and for playing a role in the evolution and simplification of high-performance multichannel audio.”
“It’s exciting to be adding new members and certifying audio systems at such a great pace in 2019,” says Tony Ostrom, president of WiSA. “System Audio is a staple in the industry, and the Legend Silverback speakers are stunning examples of what is possible when great brands implement powerful technology.”

WiSA also confirmed the certification of the Monaco 5.1 Wireless Home Theater speaker system from Platin, a division of Hansong Technology. The Monaco 5.1 Wireless Home Theater solution is a “white label” product, available immediately for licensing and rebranding by consumer electronics and audio companies worldwide.
The Monaco 5.1 Wireless Home Theater System comes from Platin’s parent company Hansong Technology, established in 1998 and recognized as an ODM and OEM manufacturing supplier in multiple areas of consumer and commercial electronics. The company’s experience includes products such as such as home theater Hi-Fi and AV systems, custom installation product, professional audio, wireless technologies and commercial audio products.
The 5.1 system combines performance, simplicity and convenience while delivering room-filling sound. With WiSA certification, the Monaco Speaker System will be able to play wireless, multi-channel audio with low-latency speaker synchronization with any WiSA compatible WiSA Certified or WiSA Ready sources. This includes new 2019 WiSA Ready LG OLED and Nano Cell (Super UHD) TVs.
Available now, the certification of the Monaco system includes satellite speakers, a center channel speaker and subwoofer. These wireless components can be mixed and matched to create powerful audio systems in any configuration from stereo (2.0) to a 7.1 theater experience. Interested CE and audio brands can contact the Hansong representative in their region for pricing and details.
“Today’s consumers desire high-quality, powerful and aesthetically-pleasing solutions that deliver uncompromised multi-channel sound without the complexity of wires,” says Helge Kristensen, Sr. VP, Hansong Technology. “As the demand for wireless continues to grow, our Monaco speaker system exemplifies a major shift in how passionate listeners consume home entertainment while serving as an ideal product for the industry’s growing number of WiSA Ready platforms.”
All WiSA Certified and WiSA Ready components work together seamlessly to deliver wireless, multi-channel audio and authentic movie theater sound that immerses the listener into the middle of movies and video, music, sports, gaming/esports and more. As a result, consumers can expect an audiophile experience, but unlike traditional audio systems, set up is simple and takes just minutes even for larger 5.1 and 7.1 setups.
“We’re very excited to add the Monaco 5.1 Wireless Home Theater speaker system to our growing list of WiSA Certified and WiSA Ready products entering the market this year,” says Tony Ostrom, president of WiSA. “As we help our members bring more products to market, the Association continues to evolve the landscape of high-definition wireless audio.”
