WiSA® LLC, the Wireless Speaker and Audio Association founded by Summit Wireless Technologies (NASDAQ: WISA) and comprised of leading consumer electronics brands, today announces the certification of EC Living’s TANA L-2 wireless speaker. The TANA L-2 is part of EC Living’s wireless lifestyle speaker system, a division of Electrocompaniet.
The TANA L-2 (€787, June/July 2019 release) is designed to enhance other EC Living speaker models and create a wireless home entertainment system. It works with any WiSA Certified™ or WiSA Ready™* source connected to a WiSA Certified USB Transmitter, such as the Axiim Link. The speaker combines timeless Scandinavian design with Electrocompaniet’s experience in pursuit of perfect music reproduction. While many other compact systems use electronic Class-D amplifiers and simple equalizers, the TANA L-2 utilizes analogue Class-AB amplifiers and sophisticated signal processing.
The TANA L-2 speaker is the latest addition to the modular EC Living family of products comprised of active speakers, including the TANA SL-1, TANA L-1 Add-on speaker, EC Living Floor Stand, and SIRA L-1 wireless subwoofer. Also included in the line are the RENA S-1 wireless streamer and RENA SA-1 streamer-amplifier. 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.
“These speakers are designed for people who desire simplicity but are passionate about high fidelity audio,” said Lasse Danielsen, sales and marketing director for Electrocompaniet. “Our powerful and design-forward EC Living speakers present a meaningful surround sound solution that works seamlessly with the growing number of WiSA Ready platforms, which includes LG TVs, Xboxes, and computers.”
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 thrilled to add the TANA L-2 to our growing list of WiSA Certified and WiSA Ready products entering the market this year,” said 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.”
