Klip­sch pre­vi­ously de­liv­ered a hub-based ac­tive wire­less Premier Ref­er­ence sys­tem us­ing WiSA tech­nol­ogy; these new mod­els are back to nor­mal pas­sive op­er­a­tion. Why so?

“Well we’ve al­ways had, we’re al­ways go­ing to have pas­sive in the line,” Klip­sch’s Michael Bu­ratto ex­plained. “The WiSA of­fer­ing was a re­ally cool op­por­tu­nity for us to dip our toes into this high-end high-def­i­ni­tion wire­less tech­nol­ogy, and that did well for us for a lit­tle

bit... it was a new idea to the cus­tomers, it’s a very high-end of­fer­ing, so it was sort of a niche prod­uct. And frankly the WiSA tech­nol­ogy I think is now just be­gin­ning to catch on — they’ve got LG now, ru­mour has it that all their new 4K OLED TVs, like $1000 and up will have WiSA two-chan­nel built into them, so they’ll work with any WiSA speaker sys­tem on the mar­ket. So right now we’re wait­ing to see where that tech­nol­ogy goes be­fore we bring out our next wire­less high-res of­fer­ing.”
