SAN JOSE, Calif.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–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
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
