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 #55 Why Readers Love Widescreen Review:

I read Widescreen Review because it has had a consistent editorial perspective since its inception: a no-compromise approach to making home theatre the best that it can be. I have read the magazine cover to cover since Issue 2. Despite staff and reviewer changes over the years, thanks to Gary's leadership this perspective has never changed. As new technologies are introduced, Widescreen Review always provides in-depth analyses of not just the technology itself, but the political and industry forces that may be forcing compromises in its development. You have always sounded the clarion call to stop compression madness or any other madness that may force us to accept a home theatre experience that falls short of what it could be. Thank you!
