General information about WiSA:

\nWiSA is a wireless system designed specifically for audio and speakers. An audio system that incorporates WiSA technology has it's own internal wireless system. It is capable of doing 96kHz/24bit audio with an audio latency of only 5ms, virtually undetectable by the human ear.

For more information on WiSA technology, please go to the official WiSA website.

If a product is WiSA Certified, it can be used with any other WiSA certified product. For example a WiSA Ready TV with at transmitter.
Note: The overall sound quality is dependent on the processing and setup in the WiSA TV & transmitter, and may result in a performance (EQ, crossover and levels) not intended by the speaker manufacturer. To be sure that the Citation products sound the best, use a Citation Bar product as the main "hub".\n


Current WiSA Certified products:

\nCitation Surrounds
Citation Sub
Citation Sub S
Citation Towers\n


Current products making use of WiSA technology:

\nCitation Bar
Citation Multibeam 700
HK surround\n


Limitations:

\nWiSA does not offer 3D audio formats like Dolby Atmos, and DTS:X yet, so at the moment it is limited to 5.1 or 7.1 Dolby Digital. So regardless of which brand of WiSA speaker you choose, Dolby Atmos will not be available yet.","ArticleType":"How_Tos__kav"},{"attributes":{"type":"Knowledge__kav","url":"/services/data/v45.0/sobjects/Knowledge__kav/ka21Y000000bqKFQAY"},"Title":"HK Citation: Recording conversation","Id":"ka21Y000000bqKFQAY","ArticleNumber":"000008776","Question__c":"Does the Citation speaker record all my conversations?","Answer__c":"No, the Citation speaker does not store any conversations, it listens only for a few seconds and then deletes the file.
