JBL WEM-1 Wireless Expansion Module


   

JBL is now shipping a new wireless module. The JBL WEM-1 (SRP: $359) adds wireless capability to any loudspeaker. It eliminates the need to run speaker wires across a room or through walls, floors or ceilings.

The WEM-1 includes a transmitter module that connects to an audio source; a receiver/amplifier unit that connects to a pair of loudspeakers; a remote control; and accessories. It is ideal for adding multiroom capability to an existing audio system; adding surround loudspeakers to a home theatre system without running speaker wires; distributing music to anywhere in the home from a computer; and for many other applications.

The WEM-1 has an operating range of up to 70 feet. It provides a variety of connection options to accommodate a wide range of audio source components and A/V receivers.

The receiver/amplifier unit features a 50-watt-per-channel amplifier and includes a subwoofer output. It provides five equalization curves that are tailored for use with select JBL loudspeakers; it also provides an unequalized bypass setting.

The receiver/amplifier also has a local input, allowing the user to directly connect a portable device or other audio source to it at a remote location.

Reason #92 Why Readers Love Widescreen Review:

Widescreen Review is the only home theatre magazine that puts the reader first. All magazines must cater to advertisers to stay in business, but at WSR you never feel that this article or this review was generated because advertising needed a little boost right now. WSR also provides the depth that I like in its reporting and analysis. I still have every copy that I purchased and that's testament to my feeling of the statue of coverage of equipment and movies for the home movie enthusiast. The series on building the Holosonic Home Theatre was very thorough, and Iím currently using it as I build a new home with a theatre room that will closely resemble the one at your editorial facilities. Some of us do truly appreciate your dedication to doing it right. Thanks for producing an excellent magazine.
