Customer Reviews for SVS SoundPath Wireless Audio Adapter
The fact that it passed my subjective initial listening test is one testament to it's performance. No issues with (unobstructed) signal, it is placed on my hardwood floor, furniture legs provide a clear path.
There are two less audio cables running along baseboard of my floors. Huge, huge pluses. All four subwoofers (two front, two rear at corners of room) are connected to an RCA amplified signal splitter, connecting the WAA was a walk in the park (although I think it takes more effort to actually walk in the park). There was no need to reset the pairing for either unit, it was as simple as plug n play. Enclosed double sided tape was a thoughtful gesture, no drill bit, drill or screws to secure the WAA.
My only bone to pick is that (currently) the WAA does not have an auto shut off feature if it doesn't detect a signal after a certain period of time (unlike my powered subwoofers) and an auto-mute at power On. Not really a deal killer (evidently). Both WAA's are connected to a smart plug, so when I tell Alexa to turn on the subwoofers, part of the Routine includes turning on the WAA power packs.
The only issue with this is a "thumping" sound I get from my rear subwoofers when power is fed to the WAA. By design, the WAA remains on at all times There is no auto shut off on the WAA itself. Accordingly, "they stay powered on so they can respond immediately to an input signal". But even my power amps have a default 2 second muted sound when powdered on, I'd be willing to bet a free lunch that the manufacturer designed it this way to avoid that "thump" when the amps are powered on. So, if my power amps can tell me to sit tight and wait for them to be unmuted when powered on, the WAA's can do the same.
I'm not asking to re-invent the wheel on the WAA, but if there isn't going to be a hard power switch (for obvious reasons) on the unit itself, would it be too much too ask to program the unit to have a 1 -2 second mute when being powered on? Especially in this age of smart home integration?
I really can't think of a scenario that justifies having the unit powered on at all times, pre-movie trailers typically run longer than 2 seconds, with the exception of the powered subwoofers that turn on instantly when they detect an input signal, I have to wait 1-2 seconds to be able to listen to any sound through my home theater. I'm not even going to get into how long it takes for my t.v. to connect to network provider servers and stream content (again, no immediate need to hear sound instantly).
Operative word: not a deal killer, more like an annoyance. I should only be able to hear the "thump" of an Imperial All Terrain Armored Transport (AT-AT) or the footsteps of a Tyrannosaurus Rex when I see the actual image on my screen, not before.
This little bone, aside: buy it, you'll be happy you did and your room will look better because of it.

I deducted 1 star for the 3.5mm connector used on both, the transmitter and receiver. This somewhat limits the ability to substitute/upgrade to higher quality audio cables. Though I'd just like to use something a little shorter/nicer, in truth, the provided cables work just fine.
