Wisdom Audio had a beautiful home cinema at ISE 2018, although the company preferred to call it a media room as it was suitable for gaming and other multimedia use. The space had been designed by Maurizio Conti, president of Home Theatre Environment, which used innovative solutions to incorporate the audiovisual components seamlessly.

The fully functioning setup featured a Sage L75 Line Source with a custom C38, L8i Insight Line Source paired with Four Sage Series ICS7a (pictured bellow) in-ceiling loudspeakers, along with S110i RTL (Regenerating Transmission Line) subwoofers and SA-3 amplifiers.

Wisdom Audio introduced its second-generation SC-2 and SC-3 system controllers and ISE. The SC-2 is an 8-channel in to 16-channel out and the SC-3 is a 16-channel in to 32-channel out system controllers, which provide installers with the ultimate audio calibration suite to easily solve room acoustic problems that can impede a pristine listening experience. In fact the sound was so realistic that, when shots were fired on the first movie the show, Dunkirk, we almost had a heart attack.

Now featuring Dirac Live, a platform for optimized sound enhancement technology, the controllers deliver perfect sound in any listening room by removing resonances and acoustic problems in sound reproduction. Expert Mode provides installers with an additional layer of live tuning features, equalization tools and the ability to override delays and trim EQ to optimize system performance in the most difficult acoustic scenarios. With four preset slots to store up to four complete and independent

“Our latest products reflect our mission to continually push the audio innovation envelope to achieve the highest performance and clarity in sound,” said Luc Guillaume, managing director, Wisdom Audio. “This also means supporting our dealers with core solutions, such as our new system controllers, that ensure flawless installations no matter the application. We are excited to hit the floor and show dealers how they can easily meet today’s high-resolution audio expectations with our solutions.”

Launched last year, Wisdom Audio’s Sage Series Superbars were also featured at the show. They are available in custom lengths of up to 98 inches and in standard black or a color customized to fit the environment and décor.  Sage Superbars deliver exceptional sound reproduction, fit-and-finish and craftsmanship ideal for high-end media rooms or meeting spaces. The series includes four models: C20m x2, C38m x2, C20m x3 (pictured above)  and C38m x1. The C20m x2 4-ohm Superbar produces a stereo playback configuration with a 40-Hz - 20-kHz +/- 2-dB frequency response and 90-dB sensitivity. The 3-ohm C38m x2 extends the response down to 35 Hz - 20 kHz +/- 2 dB and achieves 93 dB. The C20m x3, C20m x2 and C38m x1 are 4-ohm models that provide LCR playback with a frequency response of 35 Hz - 20 kHz +/- 2 dB and a peak sensitivity of 92 dB and 93 dB, respectively. Like other members of the series, each Superbar model features a planar magnetic hybrid design that yields superior detail, outstanding dynamic range and controlled directivity for a more consistent and realistic level of performance.

Wisdom Audio also introduced its own standard and custom interconnect cable kits which deliver the reliable, durable connectivity required for superior sound reproduction. Each kit features oxygen-free, high-conductivity copper conductors and the highest grade of foam polypropylene insulation for high-speed transmission and resistance from cracking and wear. The cables’ advanced Star-Quad design offers maximum protection against electrostatic interference. Each wire is numbered for ease and efficiency of installation. The Wisdom Audio WWK-BB kit includes 10 balanced XLR female to XLR male numbered 1.0-meter cables; 17 balanced XLR female to XLR male numbered 1.5-meter cables; six 1/8-inch mini DC trigger cables; and two balanced XLR Y-adapter female to dual male XLR. Also available is the WWK-CUSTOM kit, which can be customized to any length and/or termination to fit any application.

The new Wisdom Audio Sage Series Superbars include four models: C20m x2; C38m x2; C20m x3 and C20m x2 and C38m x1. The C20m x2 4-ohm Superbar produces stereo playback configuration with a 40Hz - 20kHz +/- 2dB frequency response and 90 dB sensitivity. The 3-ohm C38m x2 extends the response down to 35Hz - 20kHz +/- 2dB and achieves 93 dB. The C20m x3 and C20m x2, and C38m x1 are 4-ohm models provide LCR playback with a frequency response of 35Hz - 20kHz +/- 2dB and a peak sensitivity of 92 dB and 93 dB, respectively. Like other members of the series, each Superbar model features a planar magnetic hybrid design that yields superior detail, outstanding dynamic range, and controlled directivity for a more consistent and realistic level of performance.

Sage Superbars must be used in conjunction with active crossovers and bi-amplification to ensure proper performance. Thanks to the series’ realistic bass and incredible performance, down to 35Hz to 40Hz in some applications, an additional subwoofer may not be necessary. However, for rooms that could benefit from extra high-impact bass, Wisdom Audio offers a complete selection of RTL subwoofers that complement the full Sage Series.
