When it comes to surround sound technology, the advancements and achievements are seemingly endless. Over the last 12 months, Dolby Atmos® has proliferated, moving into homes, TV series, music, sporting events, video games, cellular devices, and more. At Platin Audio, surround sound is our specialty—we proudly introduced Monaco 5.1.2, featuring front speakers with upfiring drivers to play Dolby Atmos and Dolby Atmos Music height channels. Like our Milan 5.1 and Monaco 5.1 models, Monaco 5.1.2 includes WiSA SoundSend—the wireless audio transmitter that supports and decodes multiple audio formats, such as Dolby Atmos, Dolby Atmos Music, Dolby® TrueHD, and Dolby Digital Plus™.
Platin Audio Monaco 5.1.2 with WiSA SoundSend was released in October 2022, and combines stunning WiSA-certified 5.1.2 wireless surround sound with the legendary Dolby Atmos experience. Like Monaco 5.1, Monaco 5.1.2 includes a center-channel speaker, subwoofer, two rear speakers, and two front speakers; however, its front speakers expand the soundstage even further, with upfiring drivers that direct sound vertically—toward the ceiling—creating a complete surround sound arena, much like that of a movie theater.

With its incomparable wireless surround sound network, Monaco 5.1.2 has taken the audio industry by storm, transforming the possibilities of in-home listening experiences. Take a look at what industry experts say about our system, as well as the quality and impact of 5.1.2 and Dolby Atmos.
“Platin’s Monaco 5.1.2 system is an excellent Goldilocks solution for a new, younger demographic wanting to dip its toes into the world of high-end audio without some of the high-end hassles.”
—Andrew Nichols, CEPro »
“The performance is extraordinary and the look is incredibly sleek. Wireless! Clean looking! And that sound quality is so freaking crispy. The White Lotus finale chaos just hit harder…huge impact for the viewing experience, for sure!”
—Steve Bramucci, UPROXX »
“The key here is that, unlike so many other ‘claimed’ wireless systems that have either the sub or surrounds wireless, EVERY SPEAKER in the Platin Monaco 5.1.2 Wireless Home Theatre is wireless and independently powered through its own plug. We entertain guests quite often and our Platin Monaco system has become quite the topic of conversation on several occasions. Without a second thought whatsoever, the Platin Monaco 5.1.2 is deserving of our Editor’s Choice designation!”

“If you’re serious enough to want to go beyond a 5.1 system, you’ve got options… you can go to a 5.1.2 system - the latter of which is what [we] recommend. You can take more advantage of that object-based audio.”
—Tucker Bowe, Gear Patrol »
“WiSA systems offer a compelling alternative to both A/V receiver-based systems as well as soundbars, so the Monaco 5.1.2 might be just what some folks are looking for - all of the speakers, but none of the wires.”
—Simon Cohen, Digital Trends »
“Monaco’s primary appeal is that it’s wireless. You can’t appreciate that feature until you experience it. When the TV is turned on, The WISA automatically turns on and syncs the speakers to the TV picture. Once synced, there are no lag or out-of-sync issues. WISA uses its own wireless protocol—not Bluetooth or your home WiFi. That way, there’s no interference with other wireless gadgets in the home.…The addition of Dolby Atmos raises the Monaco system to a new level—literally.”
—Bill Henderson, The Gadgeteer »
“Platin Audio’s team of passionate designers and engineers has committed itself to being a technology leader in the category, working to make high-performing audio systems that facilitate high-quality aural and visual storytelling. It’s a true entertainment game changer that will be appreciated potentially daily for years to come.”
—Merilee Kem, JustLuxe »
“I love watching movies and always stay up to date on the newest release. Unfortunately, I don’t have time to go to the cinema often. That’s why I always do my best to have a setup at home that resembles a movie theater [and] one of the best ways to do this is to get Dolby Atmos enabled speakers.”
“Having a dollop of Dolby Atmos can go a long way.”
