Wisdom Audio: Planar Drivers Pushed to New Levels

Posted on 
August 23, 2023

In the vast universe of audio technology, only a select few brands truly differentiate themselves, stepping beyond the mundane and the traditional. Wisdom Audio, a brand synonymous with sophistication and innovation, stands tall among them.

The Start of Wisdom Audio

Wisdom Audio was started in 1996, not just to add to the existing list of brands but to redefine the landscape entirely. Their mission was crystal clear: surpass the constraints of past designs and existing technologies to produce the world's best loudspeakers.

Driven by passion, their creationsssre not confined to two-channel music reproduction. Whether your desire is rooted in traditional music or the exhilaration of multichannel movie playback, Wisdom Audio has sculpted a sound system to address and exceed your expectations.

A Commitment to Originality

While hundreds of companies around the world produce systems for homes, the majority are rooted in designs that, though slightly polished over time, have remained fundamentally unaltered for over half a century. Wisdom Audio proudly diverges from this norm.

At the heart of their commitment lies the use of groundbreaking technologies and transducers, developed and manufactured in-house. This dedication to craftsmanship and innovation places them in a league of their own.

The Excitement of CEDIA Expo 2023

The air is thick with anticipation as Wisdom Audio readies to unveil a series of enhancements to their lauded 'Insight' product range. Key additions include:

  • P7m-LCR and P9m-LCR Custom Soundbars: These are the brand’s inaugural passive soundbars, crafted to perfection and offering customizable mounting options for every aesthetic.
  • S10P Sealed Subwoofer: This 10-inch marvel boasts 500 watts of heart-pounding performance, designed for versatile placements and concealments.
  • IA-8 DSP 8-Channel Amplifier: A compact powerhouse that delivers unparalleled sound precision across eight channels.
  • ICI6 In-Ceiling Speaker: Tailored for high-definition audio zones and equipped with Wisdom’s game-changing spherical planar magnetic driver.

For those intrigued, they will be showcased in all their glory at Booth 3929 during the CEDIA Expo 2023.

Calibration: The Gold Standard

Understanding the pivotal role of calibration in sound optimization, Wisdom Audio introduces its exclusive "Never Too Late to Calibrate" series. Exclusive to their partners, this service aims to elevate the auditory experience of private theaters and media rooms.

Luc Guillaume, the Managing Director of Wisdom Audio, eloquently states, “We hope to increase awareness of the crucial must-have last step required to reach perfection in any private theater and media room.” In alignment with this announcement, the brand is set to embark on a global tour, bringing this service directly to their clientele.

Both the P7m-LCR and P9m-LCR are Wisdom Audio’s first passive soundbars and are custom sizeable with options to either be set free-standing, wall-mounted, or directly attached to the TV using a VESA mount.

The DSP model also adds a DSP board, which gives the sub access to all the necessary sound profiles for Wisdom’s Insight and Generic series of speakers and subwoofers.

Lastly, the ICI6 in-ceiling speaker joins Wisdom Audio’s Insight series and is designed for high resolution distributed audio zones, LCR channels, as well as surround and overhead channels.
