CITECH showcases WiSA E receiver module at HIGH END audio show In Munich, May 9-12, 2024

BEAVERTON, Ore.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- WiSA Association, a subsidiary of WiSA Technologies, Inc. (Nasdaq: WISA) and a leading innovator in wireless audio technology for intelligent devices and next-generation home entertainment systems, and CITECH Co., Ltd (004920.KS), a leading South Korean-based manufacturer of hi-fi audio products, digital advertising/information kiosks, and telecommunication media products, today announced the two companies have entered into a strategic partnership designed to integrate WiSA’s powerful WiSA E software into CITECH’s HiFi ROSE line of media streamers. Additionally, CITECH plans to develop a receiver module that the company will market to its partner speaker companies to accelerate the deployment of WiSA E-enabled speakers. The combination of WiSA E receiver module along with WiSA E-enabled HiFi ROSE media streamer ensures seamless delivery of WiSA’s high-quality wireless multichannel audio. CITECH will be demonstrating their line of HiFi ROSE media players at the HIGH END audio Show in Munich, Germany from May 9th through May 12th.

“We are proud to build WiSA E capabilities into our products and offer superb multichannel wireless audio to our customers,” said Sean Kim, Chief Operating Officer, CITECH. “Our HiFi ROSE product line delivers world-class sound quality to listeners seeking the range, detail, and overall musicality of a true audiophile system in a single, easy-to-use product. WiSA E technology complements our brand promise of excellence and makes it easy for our customers to enjoy immersive audio out of the box.”

CITECH plans a two-pronged approach to bringing WiSA E technology to market. Through their HiFi ROSE brand, CITECH will enable its media streamers to transmit up to 6 channels of wireless audio using the WiSA E transmitter technology. To seed the market with a number of WiSA E certified speakers, CITECH has developed a WiSA E receiver module that will be made available to CITECH’s numerous speaker partners for integration into speaker products.

“CITECH is an ideal partner for WiSA,” said Tony Ostrom, president of the WiSA Association. “The company is focused on building an ecosystem of interoperable WiSA E certified speakers to complement their line of media streamers. We encourage any speaker system that wants to become part of the WiSA E ecosystem to contact CITECH; their receiver module is the perfect foundation for building WiSA E-certified speakers.”

Visit CITECH at the HIGH END audio trade show at the MOC Event Center Messe Munich from May 9 to 12, Hall 2, G04/J03. CITECH will showcase their line of HiFi ROSE media streamers and their receiver module designed to allow speaker brands to easily build WiSA E certified receiver functionality into speakers.
