The System Audio SA Cockpit App is the central interface for the solutions of the System Audio SA Legend Silverback Series, i.e. the active loudspeaker systems from System Audio A/S. The app is now not only available for Apple iOS but also for Google Android. This app is now available not only for Apple iOS, but also for Google Android.
System Audio SA Cockpit App, this solution is the central and therefore particularly important interface for the System Audio SA Legend Silverback Series, i.e. the product line of active loudspeaker systems that the Danish company System Audio A/S sees as nothing less than the future of hi-fi and AV systems in general. And this assessment is by no means presumptuous, since this is a product line of active loudspeaker systems that rely first and foremost on the industry standard WiSA Technology and thus allow a hi-fi chain to be set up with particularly little equipment and free of cables.
Suitable for Stereo as well as Home Cinema
With WiSA technology, it is possible to assign a role to individual loudspeakers in the simplest way possible, such as covering the left or right channel of a stereo hi-fi system, but also any surround channel in a home cinema configuration, whereby solutions up to immersive 3D surround sound based on Dolby Atmos or DTS:X are possible here. All this happens “without cables”, because the control is done via radio in high resolution, free of compression, and lowest latency for a always lip-synchronous performance.
System Audio SA Legend Silverback Series – Enormously flexible use
The solutions of the System Audio SA Legend Silverback Series can be used extremely flexibly, whereby in the simplest case a TV with integrated WiSA technology is already sufficient as a source. However, System Audio A/S itself also offers suitable control centres, namely the so-called System Audio Stereo Hub on the one hand and the System Audio Surround Hub in the near future.
These form the interfaces to other components, be it analogue or digital, and of course the focus is on streaming, whereby all conceivable streaming services are supported, such as directly like TIDAL via TIDAL Connect and Spotify via Spotify Connect, or via other standards like Google Chromecast, Apple AirPlay and UPnP as a dlna-certified streaming client, and of course Bluetooth is not missing either.
System Audio SA Cockpit App
And this is where the System Audio SA Cockpit App comes in, as it is the central control for the System Audio SA Legend Silverback Series, as an alternative to the wireless remote controls always included with the System Audio Stereo Hub and System Audio Surround Hub solutions.
System Audio SA Cockpit App for Google Android
Until now, the System Audio SA Cockpit App for Apple iOS was available, but now the long-awaited version System Audio SA Cockpit App for Google Android will finally follow, System Audio A/S has now announced,
The System Audio SA Cockpit App for Google Android turns a smartphone into a control centre for the System Audio Stereo Hub and subsequently the System Audio Surround Hub and the System Audio SA Legend Silverback Series solutions.
With the app, the speakers can be configured and even several speakers can be controlled, whereby from two to eight pieces from the System Audio SA Legend Silverback Series can be configured as a stereo system, as a multi-room system or as a surround system.
A special feature of the System Audio SA Legend Silverback Series is that it uses DSP-based signal processing, which also allows room correction via System Audio SA Room Service. In addition, a manual equaliser is available for fine-tuning and, if desired, a remote service function of the manufacturer is possible in case of emergency.
In everyday operation, the input can be selected, the volume can be controlled and access to various streaming services is possible.
“Together with your smartphone, SA Cockpit gives you full control over all the functions of your wireless music system. You don’t need to search 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
Pricing and availability
The System Audio SA Cockpit App for Google Android is of course available to all users free of charge and can be downloaded now from the Google PLAY Store. Also available is the System Audio SA Cockpit App for Apple iOS, which can be found in the Apple App Store.
Getting to the point
With the System Audio SA Cockpit App for Google Android, users of a smartphone with Google Android now also have the function that users of an Apple iPhone already had with the System Audio SA Cockpit App for Apple iOS, namely full control of their solutions from the System Audio SA Legend Silverback Series. 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.
