The STA-200 can also create a modern wireless multi-room home where music can be relayed interference-free over long distances to additional STA-200s or our new FS-252 SKAA wireless active speakers.  It can also be used in a home theater system to power rear channels in a surround sound system when used with Atlantic’s up-coming Gatecrasher 3 SKAA wireless sound bar which will be available later this year.

The Benefits of SKAA

Wi-Fi and Bluetooth are wireless technologies developed for data and phone use then later adapted to entertainment audio use.  But weaknesses remain with sound quality, interference, dropouts, signal range and latency which affect A/V lip-sync and gaming realism.  Plus, network set-up and connection processes with routers, passwords and device pairing can make operating multi-room systems complex, slow and clumsy.  The good news is that SKAA solves it all.

Stage-proven by Music Pros

SKAA is a close cousin of “PAW” or Pro Audio Wireless which is proven in demanding live concert performances by leading pro musicians world-wide.   PAW reliably streams multiple instruments and singers in perfect audio sync with high-quality sound pro musicians and audiences demand. 

SKAA = High-Fidelity + Reliable Performance

To eliminate the shortcomings of other wireless technologies, SKAA has been created from the ground up for home Hi-Fi, multi-channel and multi-room use.  Sound quality is clear, full-frequency and with high dynamic range comparable to wired systems. 

Perfect for movie and game use it plays audio with an un-detectable 36 milliseconds fixed low-latency signal that’s three to five times better than other wireless technologies.   This eliminates lip-sync problems watching TV or movies and ensures maximum game performance without audio lag.

Like its pro counterpart, it delivers a robust signal with up to a 150 foot range and does this in the globally cleared 2.4 GHz band. SKAA reliably does this because of its patented Walking Frequency Diversity™ (or WFD) channel-hopping technology with error correction that eliminates interference such as clicks, pops or dropouts even in the noisiest RF environments common in tech-laden homes, apartments, businesses or even busy trade shows.

Easy, Convenient, Flexible Connectivity

No network, Wi-Fi set-up, passwords or pairing to connect SKAA devices is required; just a one button click quickly connects and switches devices.  Bluetooth or multiple analog sound sources can be directly connected to the STA-200 which acts as a SKAA transmitter and receiver.  A single SKAA transmitter can quickly connect up to four additional SKAA speakers simultaneously for single or multi-room use.

Make Anything a SKAA Audio Source

Any analog or digital audio device in the home can affordably, quickly and easily add SKAA capability.  Small, low-cost SKAA digital transmitters turn any PC, MAC, NAS, into an audio source. Portable iOS, Android or Blackberry devices can be turned into a SKAA transmitter with adapters for USB-A, micro-USB, USB-C, iOS Lightning or 30 pin interface, all with ultra-low power consumption. Digital TOSLINK and S/PDIF plus stereo analog to SKAA transmitters are also available.

Switching between sources or transmitters is quickly done with a single click from a button on the speaker or the included wireless remote with no cumbersome paring or Wi-Fi re-sets involved. 

Wireless without Compromise

SKAA is a wireless standard that ensures 100% compatibility across a growing number of different products and brands.  A diverse eco-system is quickly emerging from Atlantic Technology and other companies so consumers can easily create a variety of compatible home and portable wireless entertainment systems for inside and outside the home that are interference and hassle-free, but without sonic compromise.

Features and Specs – Atlantic Technology STA-200 Wireless SKAA Streaming Amp

This elegant compact integrated amp creates a great sounding home stereo system to connect legacy analog audio gear and speakers while creating a modern audio eco-system that wirelessly connects to tablets, phones, PCs and other digital audio sources. 

Multi-room systems can be easily created by adding up to four additional STA-200 or FS-252 active speaker systems with a range of up to 150 feet between systems.  Units can be easily grouped for selective multi-room playback. Connectivity and switching between systems and sources is simple without awkward paring or slow, complex router set up or passwords needed. Each STA-200 amp comes with a seven button IR remote which duplicates the front mounted system control panel.

The STA-200 provides 2x 100-watts of class-D power in an elegant modern look with a piano black high-gloss cabinet featuring radiused edges.  The brushed aluminum front panel has five buttons (Gear, Bluetooth, Volume Up, Volume Down and SKAA) and five, multi-color/multi-function LED’s that make operation simple and easy.  These controls are duplicated on the included IR remote control. Plus, a front mounted 3.5 millimeter Aux input makes connections to additional analog sound sources convenient. 

Connectivity

The integrated amp’s back includes analog stereo RCA inputs for legacy audio sources such as the pre-out from a pre-amp or receiver, a CD player or TV.  Stereo RCA pre-out jacks can connect the amp to active speakers, subwoofers or analog audio systems.

The back also has two pairs of banana style speaker terminals to connect a pair of passive speakers.   A short, rear-mounted adjustable antenna assures excellent wireless connectivity.

For universal compatibility, Bluetooth®4.0 with aptX™is also available for highly-flexible use with mobile or other source devices.  The analog inputs or the Bluetooth signals can be relayed by the STA-200 via SKAA simultaneously to as many as four, STA-200’s, FS-252 systems and other SKAA speakers or headphones.  One button switching from the control panel or remote makes audio source or transmitter switching fast and simple.   

Anything can add SKAA capability

It’s easy to add optional plug-and-play SKAA transmitters to home and mobile devices turning any analog or digital audio device into a SKAA transmitter, able to simultaneously stream audio to other home SKAA speakers, headphones or receivers.  For a complete transmitter list see… https://shop.atlantictechnology.com/product/STA-200

For SKAA transmitters used with the STA-200, a free optional App called “SKAA cmd” is available for iOS, Android, Mac and PC. Find it at www.skaaa.com/tlc/or in the iOS App Store and Google Play. This gives a transmitter customizable multi-room operation such as setting up group control or selective muting of speakers around the home.
