It is the central control centre for the System Audio SA Silverback Series, the System Audio Stereo Hub. It ensures that the broad product line of active loudspeaker systems from Denmark can be used as extremely flexible solutions. System Audio A/S is now once again providing an important update for this hub. According to the manufacturer, this update is primarily intended to improve the user experience, with a series of optimisations and detail improvements.
System Audio Stereo Hub – The central interface
System Audio A/S itself calls the System Audio Stereo Hub the most intelligent control centre, a solution that provides central control for a stereo system with System Audio SA Silverback Series active speakers.
The System Audio SA Silverback Series speakers themselves have inputs, of course, but they are primarily focused on DSP-based signal processing and amplifier modules, the connection to the outside world, the central control, all this is handled by the System Audio Stereo Hub.
The System Audio Stereo Hub is the hub for all audio devices. This is where you connect a TV, record player, CD player, computer or any other device that is to be integrated into the hi-fi system.
The System Audio Stereo Hub supports Google Chromecast, Apple Airplay, Bluetooth and Spotify Connect, and is thus also the centre for “wireless” devices, regardless of whether they use Apple iOS or Google Android.
The company promises uncompromising quality, as audio data with up to 24 bit and 192 kHz are supported. The signal transmission to the actual speakers is also free of delays and of high quality, according to the manufacturer’s promise, relying on the industry standard WiSA.
Numerous Detail Improvements
The new update is supposed to optimise the connection to a TV set via HDMI, especially the control via HDMI CEC, as well as Bluetooth and the implementation of Apple AirPlay and Google Chromecast, especially with regard to the wake-up function.
The WiSA setup and the WiSA channel setup via the remote control have also been optimised, and WiSA pairing should now work even more reliably.
Any problems with distortion and noise that may occur in individual cases should now be a thing of the past and the previously selected level should always be selected when switching from standby.
The display of the speakers in the associated System Audio SA Cockpit app for Apple iOS and Google Android has also been improved, and if you use a so-called RAM tweak, this is now also displayed in the app.
According to the manufacturer, to carry out the update, the System Audio Stereo Hub should be briefly disconnected from the power supply, i.e. wait about ten to 15 seconds, then reconnect it, and the update should then be automatically installed. However, it may also be necessary to initialise the corresponding download manually via the System Audio SA Cockpit App using “Check for updates”.
The current update carries the system version 515 and the streaming chipset version 15262, which should be mentioned here for the sake of completeness.
Prices and availability
The update is available free of charge to all customers of the System Audio Stereo Hub.
Getting to the point
With its System Audio SA Silverback Series, the Danish company System Audio A/S not only offers an extremely exciting product line of active loudspeaker systems with, above all, “wireless” control, but also nurtures them with ever new functions and regular updates. This is proven once again with the latest update now available for the System Audio Stereo Hub.
