Piega introduces Ace loudspeakers

A year on from the launch of its Ace passive loudspeaker range, Swiss company Piega has introduced a new range: Ace Wireless, a series of compact, fully integrated active loudspeakers with wireless sound for stereo and up to 7.1 channel setups.

The new Ace Wireless incorporates upgraded mid and bass MDS drivers, a revised version of Piega’s Air Motion Transformer (AMT) tweeter, digital amplification up to 200W per channel, streaming services and a sophisticated DSP system capable of handling up to 24-bit/192kHz music files. The system offers connectivity both wirelessly via WiSA or Bluetooth and wired via HDMI, optical or coaxial. It is DLNA certified and offers analogue connectivity for legacy audio products. Ace Wireless is Roon Ready and integrates Spotify Connect & HiFi and Google Chromecast. The built-in DSP system features switchable boundary gain compensation.

The series comprises the Ace 50 Wireless floorstanding speakers, Ace 30 Wireless bookshelf and the Ace Center Wireless for home cinema setups. All models are available in three colour finishes of sandblasted natural aluminium, anodised satin black or gloss white lacquer with colour coordinated, removable grilles. The Ace 50 and 30 Wireless models are available in TX (transmission) and RX (receiver) versions, a stereo pair being one of each unit.
