• The ES-SUB-WIRELESS costs as much as some
interconnects needed to facilitate proper subwoofer
placement, yet it
doesn't clutter up your floor with its obvious presence, making it a
better aesthetic solution - one that is high in WAF.
ES-SUB-WIRELESS allows you the freedom to place your subwoofer anywhere
in your room (within 50 feet), meaning you can finally place it where it
sounds best and not just where you think you can accommodate it.
• The ES-SUB-WIRELESS' one-time setup procedure is simple enough that even a caveman could do it.
The ES-SUB-WIRELESS kit works as advertised and was virtually
indistinguishable in terms of audio quality from that of a hard-wired
connection. Low Points
• For whatever reason, the
ES-SUB-WIRELESS kit is susceptible to ground loop hum, meaning careful
cable management is a must to ensure the utmost clarity and performance.
Competition and Comparison
Wireless subwoofer technology is
becoming a hot topic among enthusiasts and manufacturers. A few other
companies offering wireless setups are Aperion Audio
, MartinLogan, Sunfire
, GoldenEar and others. The nice thing about the ES-SUB-WIRELESS kit
is that it works with all subwoofers, not just those made by Episode
loudspeakers, which is not the case for products like those from Aperion
Audio. For more on wireless technology and subwoofers, please check out
Home Theater Review's Subwoofer page
my time spent with the ES-SUB-WIRELESS kit from Episode is a first, I
see the appeal, for having a wireless subwoofer setup allows the freedom
to set one's subwoofer up in a location that is truly beneficial
without having to worry about lengthy cable runs and/or angry spouses.
While careful cable management is a must to ensure a clear transmission
between transmitter and receiver, it is a small caveat, for the
ES-SUB-WIRELESS kit is a great product and should serve all who purchase
it well.Additional Resources
