The New VEGA4S, VEGA6S, VEGA8S, and VEGA10S are Expected to Ship Early Q4 of 2022
EDMONTON, Alberta, Canada, July 25, 2022 – Eleven Engineering, Inc. (elevenengineering.com), a market leader in semiconductor products for wireless audio for professional, home theater, multi-room, portable, 12 Volt (car, truck, motorcycle, power sports, marine) and gaming applications, is proud to announce that Cerwin-Vega’s recently launched VEGA series studio monitor speakers incorporate SKAA/SKAA Pro® technology.
“Cerwin-Vega is an iconic brand in our industry with customers and fans worldwide, and we couldn’t be more proud to have SKAA be a part of its latest pro audio line of products,” said Rex Whitehead, Eleven Engineering Executive Vice President – Sales and Marketing. “Audio engineers and Pro DJ’s require fast and fixed very low latencies when going wireless, making SKAA the ideal solution for Cerwin-Vega’s new monitors that will satisfy these needs.”
The new VEGA4S, VEGA6S, and VEGA8S models use a new custom Bi-Amplifier while the
VEGA10S uses a custom Triple-Amplifier that all run coolly and efficiently with an accurate frequency response throughout the audio spectrum. Featuring Class “D” topology, these amplifiers offer large headroom and low noise amplification.
“The new VEGA studio monitors are truly a class-leading product,” said Bob Chanthavongsa, Cerwin-Vega V.P. of Sales & Marketing, “With embedded SKAA/SKAA Pro technology, these monitors not only reproduce amazing sound and signature Vega bass, they deliver the form and function that artists require in order for them to create and perform at the highest level imaginable.”
The VEGA series DSP-controlled studio monitor speakers are designed and engineered with innovation and come with embedded Bluetooth 5.1 and SKAA Pro wireless technology in addition to traditional wired inputs if that is what is needed, thereby making them an industry leader when it comes to studio monitors with a focus on ease and speed of connectivity.
“One of the principal disadvantages of using traditional wireless audio solutions in a pro audio setting is inherent latency issues and navigating through an abundance of wireless traffic,” added Whitehead. “SKAA’s low latency ability is something that Bluetooth and WiFi audio-based solutions cannot accomplish for many reasons. However, there are even more demanding applications, such as critical studio and live performance (DJ) that require even lower latency. This is where SKAA Pro takes over.”
The VEGA series nearfield monitor speakers are sold as a pair pack consisting of a hub and a satellite monitor. The hub monitor is the “control” center speaker and the satellite monitor speaker receives innovative SKAA transmission from either the hub monitor or from other SKAA integrated sources at lightning quick speed that other wireless deliveries cannot even begin to fathom.
“These monitor speakers are ideal for music professionals that require their music in real time with fixed latency, no delays, or acoustical music loss,” Chanthavongsa concluded. “For a complete aural experience, two additional VEGA satellite monitors can be connected via SKAA wireless technology without any performance hindrance.”
The new VEGA4S, VEGA6S, VEGA8S, and VEGA10S studio monitor speakers are expected to be shipping in early Q4 of 2022. Projected retail pricing is expected to range from $659.99 for the VEGA4S model to $1,399.99 for the VEGA10S model.
SKAA is the new wireless HiFi audio standard developed by Eleven Engineering, Inc. SKAA transmitters work with iOS & Android mobile devices, Mac & Windows computers, televisions, and just about any product with a line output or a headphone jack. SKAA is also available as a built-in technology not requiring an external transmitter in purpose-designed partner products, which are featured at SKAA.com. In environments laden with heavy Wi-Fi and Bluetooth traffic, SKAA navigates through these hostile environments with best-in-class reliability. SKAA also allows for uninterrupted audio signals which are delivered with the highest sound quality to all speakers without the latency that is inherent in other wireless solutions.
