Many high-end stereo systems offer the opportunity to connect several speakers together wirelessly to create a multi-room audio experience. However, linking speakers wirelessly to create stereo pairs or surround sound systems is technically challenging, due to the extremely tight synchronization necessary to accurately reproduce a faithful sound stage and maintain channel separation. Imagination measures several competing technologies on the market today and illustrates how innovative application of Wi-Fi networking protocols in audio chips can deliver several orders of magnitude improvement, creating opportunity for high quality wireless audio and producing results that are indistinguishable from wired speaker systems.
