System Audio A/S now presents the System Audio SA Cockpit App for Apple iOS as a revolutionary control of the System Audio Stereo Hub, System Audio Surround Hub and, above all, the Wireless Active Speaker systems from the System Audio SA Legend Silverback Series.
With the System Audio SA Cockpit App, the Scandinavian loudspeaker specialist System Audio A/S now presents the long-awaited solution for particularly easy control of the loudspeaker systems from the System Audio SA Legend Silverback Series as well as the System Audio Stereo Hub and subsequently also the System Audio Surround Hub.
The company from Roskilde, Denmark, even goes so far as to speak of a revolutionary app that comes up with a multitude of particularly exciting features.
The System Audio SA Legend Silverback Series
As is well known, System Audio A/S is increasingly focusing on active loudspeaker systems, whereby they are pursuing their very own approach. This product line is a so-called Wireless Active Speaker, which is supposed to be characterised by special flexibility.
The basis for signal transmission is the WiSA standard, the only industry standard that was explicitly developed for this task and offers the great advantage of loss-free signal transmission in hi-res audio with the lowest latencies.
The signal transmission via WiSA is so powerful that not only a stereo system can be realised based on this technology, but even entire multi-room and even multi-channel solutions. WiSA is therefore perfect for providing sound for an entire house, but also for realising a surround setup with Wireless Active Speakers alone, such as the solutions of the System Audio SA Legend Silverback Series.
It is not without reason that Ole Witthøft, founder of System Audio A/S, says that the System Audio SA Legend Silverback Series is a solution that revolutionises the way hi-fi and home cinema systems are realised.
System Audio SA Cockpit App
The System Audio SA Cockpit App is intended to be a central component for the configuration and simple control of the speaker systems of the System Audio SA Legend Silverback Series, but also for the central interfaces used here, the System Audio Stereo Hub and, in the future, the System Audio Surround Hub.
System Audio A/S has been working on this app for quite some time now, although they have unfortunately always had to deal with delays in recent months.
Now, however, the said System Audio SA Cockpit App is actually available for smartphones with the Apple iOS operating system.
The System Audio SA Cockpit App allows the control of all functions, i.e. volume, input selection, etc., for each speaker system in the network, also in Multiroom configurations. The configuration of the speaker systems is also mapped with it, whereby you can combine from two to eight System Audio SA Legend Silverback Series speakers, in the future also as a multichannel system including Dolby Atmos.
A very essential point is the optimal adjustment to the room, first and foremost via System Audio SA Room Service with the calibration function offered here. Of course, you can also make manual refinements using the equalisers provided by the DSP-based signal processing of the Active Wireless Speakers.
Any updates can also be conveniently installed and, if necessary, you can contact the manufacturer’s support directly.
“Together with your smartphone, SA Cockpit gives you full control over all the functions of your wireless music system. You don’t need to look for your remote control because it is already in SA Cockpit. If you want to listen to music in another room, you can simply move the sound with SA Cockpit. You can play music from your streaming service through SA Cockpit, optimise the sound to the acoustics of your room and fine-tune it with the manual equaliser. Setting up the whole system is easy with SA Cockpit, and if you need help, it can send a status report to our service department at your command, without you having to do more.”
Ole Witthøft, founder of System Audio A/S
It is also interesting that System Audio A/S once again sees the new app in a larger context and understands it as an important building block in its own strategy. Solutions such as the System Audio SA Legend Silverback Series are also considered revolutionary because they can be updated or upgraded at any time, and the topics of value stability for the customer and sustainability in the larger sense can thus be brought into even sharper focus.
“SA Cockpit is a glimpse into the future of product development. We used to buy a new device to get new features, but manufacturing the new device requires both immense resources and transportation, and it is no longer appropriate to do so. Nor is it justifiable. In our digital age, the possibilities are not limited by the physical world. SA Cockpit performs more different tasks than any physical product, but does not consume the resources of our planet in terms of materials and transport. It is expandable, and any new development immediately benefits all users.”

Pricing and availability
Currently, the System Audio SA Cockpit app is only available for Apple iOS. One of the main reasons for this is the fact that developers can rely on familiar features of the Apple iPhone for the app’s calibration functions, whereas smartphones with Google Android use completely different hardware. Nevertheless, System Audio A/S is also planning a corresponding version of the System Audio SA Cockpit App for Google Android, which will rely on a special wirelessly connected microphone.
Getting to the point
With the System Audio SA Cockpit App, at least users of an Apple iPhone now have full control of their System Audio SA Legend Silverback Series solutions. The new app now combines all the possibilities offered by these wireless active speakers from System Audio A/S via the WiSA standard used here as well as the DSP-based signal processing in one app and should enable the expansion of further new functions in the future.
