Does anyone know any info on the new A-link that they sent out an e-mail about?
It seems pretty cool.
Looks like volume controls on both the receiving and transmitting boxes.
Wonder what communication protocol it uses and if they will have an EQ with it built in.

The A Link is a wireless send and receive "kit" There is a send unit and receive unit. One send unit can send to multiple receive units. The receive units automatically pair to the closest send unit. They have a 3.5 aux in on the send and a 3.5mm aux out on the receive. Both are portable with built in Li-Ion battery. Built in line drivers for good output voltage to the system. Volume control on both units. So you can have the ability to control how much your sending out to the others or how much your sending into your system from the receive side. The 3.5mm jacks are under the rubber flip up covers on the top as is the micro usb charging port.

We will be selling a "kit" with a send and receive unit as well as receive only unit so you can have some spare units in case a boat or utv pulls up and wants to join the party.

You would come out of the main system output. Either 3.5 mm Y adapter from phone into send and your system. Or from the boat link output if you have a WS-420. On the receive side, you would come 3.5 mm out and jack into your radio or eq.

The units are built on a 2.4 ghz platform for great range. We are still testing but 100-150 feet unobstructed will be where it will reach. They are full uncompressed so no loss of information and full quality sound.

We are very close to shipping. I will have more information and pricing up on our site and FB soon.

They can be used to link boats or UTV for a party cove set up. To send audio from a dock to a boat if you want. They can be used at home to send audio from your stereo to an outdoor system. From your computer to you home audio system. From your phone in your gym bag to your headphones so you only have to have the little box in your pocket. There are a lot of ways to utilize the A-Link.

Tim you should get a NOBEL piece prize. This is somthing that has been needed for a long time. Hopefully this will become a trend and people at social party spots can finally get a clue and either "link up" and play one music source and rock it.

Awesome , we have been using a bluetooth setup this past summer and it works but is a pain to hand out the recieving units and pair everyone up. Now im just wondering once these become popular and everyone has one should they have a couple channels to choose from ? If they automatically link up to the nearest sending unit is it possible if your in a large tie up u could get interference from multiple sending units ?

moto, we are still testing the large groups with different send units. However these have a auto scanning feature for clear channels. So one thought is if you have a group of say, 8 boats in your party. The DJ boat (send) would turn his on, and then turn all of the receives on right there in the boat next to his send and then pass them out. So they will be paired with that one. So you will be linked to that and the next group will be linked to their group and so on.

Wow, this sounds pretty cool. Don't forget to send one to WakeWorld for review!! How much are the extra receiving units? I can see a lot of uses for this!! I'm on board for that Nobel prize thing!

JL is home use. For sending signal to a subwoofer on the other side of the room. There are other home audio systems for this type of use. You could also use it to send a signal from a computer to a home audio system etc.

Ours is portable. Designed for marine, car, motorcycle, home, gym.. You name it. Whether it be linking boats together, utv together, sending audio to a home audio system or from a home system to your headphones, sending signal from a giant iphone6 plus type phone in your gym bag to your headphones so you don't have to carry the big phone on you etc. all sorts of uses .

We are real world beta testing units now. Should have updates soon when we are shipping

Other than what David has pointed out, this is the big one for me. No 5VDC connection, the WS unit looks to run on a battery (IE: Portable).

Is this shipping yet?
Old    John Bauer (jonyb)      Join Date: Nov 2008       02-21-2015, 5:38 PM Reply   
2nd quarter. They don't have pricing yet for dealers.

Trust me, they'll be worth the wait. Wet Sounds doesn't put anything out unless it's perfect.
