PREMIUM WIRELESS SERIES Facts and Details
THE PRODUCT DETAILS AND BENEFITS
By the PIEGA Team
We thought it was time to give you an in-depth introduction and explanation of all the features and benefits of the system. Furthermore, we asked the developer and engineer behind the Premium Wireless series, Dominik Züger, to share why he is personally excited about the new series.
We are a traditional Swiss company. Delivering high quality products without compromises is the core of our DNA. Just call us old fashioned or conservative but this won’t change. We therefore set ourselves the task of going against the status quo and pushing back the current boundaries of wireless sound. Making high-end music quality accessible without any restriction and integrating the new transmission technologies in our products. The result is the new Premium Wireless Series.
It has been long enough YOU have had to settle for the mediocre sound quality delivered by wireless speakers. We consequently created a premium speaker and made it wireless. Being the polite Swiss people we are, we of course apologize for the time you had to wait!
PREMIUM WIRELESS DELIVERS THE PIEGA SOUND EXPERIENCE
As you might have already observed, the series consists of three wirelessly controllable active loudspeakers as well as the PIEGA connect. Active means that we have integrated Digital Sound Processing and a digital amplifier in each of the speakers. Consequently, the power and perfect sound reproduction are delivered to you without the need for an external amplifier.
THE PIEGA CONNECT AND USE OF MUSIC STREAMING PLATFORMS
The “PIEGA connect” module is used for connecting existing devices (such as your TV, network streamer, turntable and/or subwoofer) and for the facilitation of the wireless transmission of sound signals to the loudspeakers. The signals are transmitted via a lossless digital wireless link, enabling music to be played via analog and digital inputs, as well as via the integrated Bluetooth (aptX) module. This allows you to stream your favorite music directly from your smartphone, tablet or notebook – like you are used to. Now you will just also get the ultimate sound quality. A difference you will feel.
SWITCH EFFORTLESSLY BETWEEN SOURCES
The PIEGA connect also enables you to smoothly switch between sources. As an example, if you are watching TV you can switch easily using your device (phone, tablet, computer) to your music streamed – and back again. The same of course goes for other digital or analog inputs.
SIMPLE TO INSTALL AND OPERATE
One of the main goals for the system was that ANYONE in the family should be able to use the system including kids and none-tech savvies. Even friends visiting should be able to play their music directly from their own smartphone easily and within seconds. The same view was taken with regard to the installation. We believe we have managed to achieve all this with the finished system. If you may not fully trust “anyone” to use the system, we are happy to inform you that the integrated sound processor automatically ensures optimum sound quality: The bass and high frequency sounds are automatically increased if you are listening at a low volume. On the hand, at very high volumes, the bass element is reduced slightly in order to protect your loudspeakers from any overload.
DON’T SELL YOUR CURRENT MULTIROOM SYSTEM – JUST UPGRADE IT
You can easily integrate any of the Premium Wireless speakers into your existing multi-room system and in this way get authentic HIFI sound in any room you wish. The answer to “the how?” is the PIEGA connect. It provides a lossless interface between well-known multi-room systems and our loudspeakers.

WHAT DOES THE ENGINEER BEHIND IT SAY ABOUT THE NEW SERIES?
Why are you (Dominik) excited about this specific product (launch)?
“It’s very exciting, because it’s our first product using digital signal processing and wireless technology. As a result, this project took a bit longer to realize, which makes its launch even more exciting and satisfying. Being very happy with the outcome of course helps too!”
Why do you especially like this product?
“Since I’m more from the technical side I love most the possibilities given by digital signal processing. It allows us to tune and control our speakers differently from passive loudspeaker versions. Simply put, we can better control bass, especially at lower listening levels, and properly protect the speakers from overload by limiting the power supplied to the drivers.
Furthermore, I like the ease of use. The product is very simple to set up and supports the modern way of music reproduction.”
What makes this product different compared to other products in the market from your point of view?
“The Premium Wireless Series comes with the typical unique PIEGA trademarks, such as aluminum cabinets and our very own PIEGA ribbon tweeters. They help us to achieve an outstanding sound reproduction in fairly small cabinets.”
Dominik joined PIEGA in mid of 2017 and quickly became an important part of the PIEGA family. By joining us, Dominik brought extensive experience and know-how within electronic design and development. Dominik has been a key player in the whole development phase of the new generation PIEGA speakers. Even though Dominik is rather new to the PIEGA family, he is actually an old fan of the house and has had PIEGA speakers at home long before he joined the company. He likes to refer to himself as “a true PIEGA enthusiast”!
