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 #80 Why Readers Love Widescreen Review:

I subscribe to several magazines because each one has a different bias, and they obviously don't always write about the same things. I purchase magazines at the newsstand when a particular article or review interests me enough that it's a keeper. I consider Widescreen Review to have the most professional bias of the home theatre magazines. Whereas something like Sound & Vision, I would consider to be more of a consumer bias. One of the things I like about Widescreen Review is the articles about the industry and technical articles (e.g., room setup). I also like its detailed equipment reviews that tell it like it is. One other item of note would be the DVD reviews. I like the ratings, the short descriptions, and the technical information.
