Wireless audio company Axiim Inc has launched its LINK USB wireless audio transmitter, the worlds first and only multi-channel wireless audio transmitter designed for the XBOX One and 2019 LG TVs for US$229.
The WiSA certified LINK transmitter works with Xbox One, 2019 LG OLED and NanoCell TVs, Windows 10 PCs, and Mac computers, and will be made available from Axiim’s website.
No mention yet on local availability of the product or Australian pricing just yet.
First debuting at CES 2018 in Las Vegas as a major milestone for WiSA who are committed to fostering “convenient, powerful, and wireless home theatre experiences” for the gaming market.
The LINK USB audio transmitter allows users to wirelessly pair speakers together without needing speaker cables, provided they are using WiSA certified speakers such as Klipsch, Bang & Olufsen, Enclave Audio, Harman International and more.
Listeners can set up 7.1 discrete channels through the LINK mobile app, or via the LG TV Speaker set up guide, though it should be noted that Link supports up to 5.1 when connected to LG TVs.
A small and sleek design, reminiscent of a Google Nest Mini can output uncompressed 24bit/96kHz audio with 10-band EQ surround sound audio processing and bass management.
The remote control app is available on iOS and Android and allows for fine-tuned audio playback including per speaker level control, low-frequency effects and more.
Axiim also guarantees the most up to date firmware with over-the-air updates provided automatically from the app.
“The integration of our technologies delivers an unprecedented wireless surround sound experience that complements the exceptional visual experience of LG’s flagship TVs,” said James Hammer, CEO of Axiim Inc.
The LINK wireless audio transmitter has found itself at the precipice of LGs venture into creating better gaming displays with higher refresh rates and compatibility with G-Sync and Free Sync technologies from Nvidia and AMD.
With the inclusion of WiSA wireless home theatre system functionality, Axiim is due to ride alongside LG as they get closer to the gaming market, with Tony Ostrom, President of WiSA affirming, “We are committed to supporting today’s gamers through our invaluable relationships with Xbox and Axiim”.
