Swiss loudspeaker manufacturer Piega has launched Ace Wireless, a WiSA-certified active loudspeaker line-up for home audio. The range covers stereo to 7.1 channel systems, from desktop to home theatre.

Incorporating Piega’s signature aluminium cabinets, designed by Swiss architect Stephan Hürlemann, and AMT ribbon tweeters, the collection offers TV integration via HDMI eARC, boasts both optical and coaxial digital audio physical connectivity, plus Bluetooth and Google Chromecast. Spotify Connect is built-in, and the hardware is Roon Ready.

The Ace Wireless line incorporates upgraded mid and bass MDS drivers, a revised version of the brand’s Air Motion Transformer (AMT) tweeter, digital amplification up to 200W per channel, streaming services, and a DSP system capable of handling up to 24bit/192kHz High-Res Audio.

Additional system features include switchable boundary gain compensation, DLNA certification, and analogue connectivity for legacy audio products.

The series comprises the Ace 50 Wireless floorstanding speakers, Ace 30 Wireless bookshelf units, and the Ace Center Wireless centre channel model. All models are available in three colour finishes of sandblasted natural aluminium, anodised satin black or gloss white lacquer with colour coordinated, removable grilles.

The Ace 50 and 30 Wireless models are available in TX (transmission) and RX (receiver) versions, a stereo pair being one of each unit. Multichannel systems use all RX designated units and receive the surround sound signal for each channel from a WiSA certified source or WiSA enabled TV/display device.

Manuel Griener, CEO of PIEGA in Zurich, said: “The Ace Wireless series brings cutting edge digital technology and active amplification to our most stylish and contemporary loudspeaker range. Delivering the largest sound from the smallest practical cabinets, Ace Wireless makes audiophile sound quality simple, intuitive, and elegant, whether you want breath-taking two-channel stereo music or the excitement of 7.1 channel movie surround sound. Ace Wireless puts PIEGA at the forefront of digital home audio loudspeaker integration.”

Tony Ostrom, WiSA President, commented, “The system is the perfect example of seamless TV and loudspeaker integration as the Ace Wireless speakers can be connected wirelessly to any WiSA Certified product to deliver excellent sound. The Swiss brand’s commitment to quality remains at the forefront of all that they do and is evident when experiencing their loudspeaker’s award-winning sound.”

Available in the UK from late February, the Ace Wireless series will be available exclusively through Piega audio retailers across the UK.
