The Onkyo SOUND SPHERE with SoundSend will be available in 2.1, 3.1 and 5.1 system bundles, giving customers flexibility to purchase a format that best suits their needs and environment. Thanks to WiSA Certified speakers and Soundsend, an HDMI (or optical)-connected audio transmitter, the Onkyo surround sound systems provide immersive, theater-quality sound experiences without the need for wires and after only minutes of setup.
“Due to gaps in home entertainment that were brought to light by the recent COVID-19 pandemic, we saw an opportunity to further enhance home audio and video,” said Kevin Miyagi, an Onkyo Home Entertainment board member. “The SOUND SPHERE possesses the capabilities to allow users to experience sound that matches high-quality video, making any home feel like a live venue. We are excited to be partnering with WiSA Association to enrich the audio and video industry.”
By bundling with WiSA’s first-ever branded product, SoundSend, audio can be transmitted wirelessly to Onkyo SOUND SPHERE speakers and subwoofers with extremely low latency. SoundSend can also transmit up to eight high-quality audio channels at the same time, and its mobile application enables easy access and control features like MyZone, which allows users to create a “sweet spot” for ideal listening. The Onkyo systems are compatible with the latest surround audio format Dolby Atmos Height Virtualizer and their speaker sound quality matches and perfectly complements the visuals from today’s high-resolution televisions.
