Platin Monaco 5.1 has been recognized as one of the Top 20 Best Wireless Surround Sound Systems by Luxatic, the internet’s one-stop source for all things luxury and high-lifestyle, and we’re feeling pretty fancy about that! While Luxatic regularly covers topics like the best yachts, the most expensive stock trades, and real estate listings worthy of a James Bond villain, we’re proud that Platin Monaco performs up to the highest standard of home theater audio while still coming in under $1000. Luxatic specifically recognized Monaco alongside the Axiim LINK, but it is also available with the award-winning WiSA SoundSend transmitter, compatible with all smart TVs via HDMI-ARC.
Every product on Luxatic’s list is unique and outstanding in its design and capabilities, but we naturally believe that Platin Monaco stands out for a few reasons. While soundbars are a frequent go-to design for wireless systems due to their reliance on Bluetooth transmission technology, Platin Monaco is WiSA Certified, and that means it can handle a far higher bandwidth and more audio complexity than Bluetooth systems. Speaking of WiSA: together with us on Luxatic’s top 20 list is the Enclave CineHome II, also a WiSA Certified system, so congratulations to our friends at Enclave Audio!
Many soundbar-based “surround sound” systems are limited simply by the physical size of the soundbar component, or they rely on small satellite speakers which have to be charged, removed, and replaced to be re-charged after use. Platin Monaco’s speakers each plug into their own power outlet, and they can be placed anywhere in the room to make your TV’s sound bigger and better than a soundbar, without any batteries to hassle with. In other words, if you’re a “set it and forget it” kind of person when it comes to your TV’s surround sound speakers, then This Is The Way.
Once again, our thanks to Luxatic for this awesome recognition, as Platin Audio and Monaco 5.1 continue to make waves in the wireless audio world.
