The past 10 years have been amazing for music lovers and for audiophiles.
It may have been the most fantastic decade ever!
More and more music has become available on the internet for everyone to discover and enjoy.
More music is written and published now than during any other time in history.
We even buy more acoustic guitars than ever before!
Streaming services have continuously upgraded sound quality and we’re now able to enjoy streamed music in a higher quality than through any physical media.
Artists are able to publish music directly from their home studios to audiences all over the world thanks to digitalization.
Today, we listen to music everywhere. In the metro, in the car, on the bicycle, when doing sports and in the living room.
Well, actually in every room of our homes!
We use all kinds of technology to enjoy the music we love. Smartphones, computers, servers, CD players, Super Audio CD players, cassette decks … and … of course … turntables.
In fact on March 28, 2020 we celebrate our 10th vinyl fair and you’re welcome!
Vinyl is still the biggest music format with more than 600 million songs published (only 180 million on Spotify).
Genuine music lovers still turn to vinyl to get access to all of this music.
Being a Danish loudspeaker brand, this anniversary was particularly amazing, as the loudspeaker is a Danish invention.
100 years ago, the loudspeaker brought music into people’s homes along with a lot of equipment, cables and buttons.
Music has been digitally recorded since the 80’s (yes, including music for vinyl records) and the past decade has seen incredible steps forward for digital technology.
There are now digital solutions for everything that used to be analog.
The only way to seriously improve the loudspeaker is to implement smarter technology.
WiSA is a technology that transmit music digitally and wirelessly instead of a loudspeaker cable. With WiSA there is no loss, no compression, no coloration, nothing added and nothing taken away from the music.
Digital signal processing allows us to work with the sound in the loudspeaker like never before.
Digital technology together with fine acoustic design and incredibly solid mechanical construction helped us to create SA legend silverback, a family of digital active loudspeakers.
You can now:
• Enjoy music with a more life-like and musical sound
• Hear all the instruments even at low volume
• Experience deeper bass than ever before
• Finally enjoy the true dynamics of the recording
• Save up to 80 % of electrical power compared to a traditional music system
It is the biggest technological breakthrough in audio for 30 years.
The most amazing thing about the past decade is that almost no technology or format have disappeared.
Technology is no longer a battle between A and B.
It’s not a battle between true believers and lost souls.
We are still going to have analog music systems with cables and buttons and passive speakers.
There's room for ambitions of all kinds.
Digital technology allows us to move the loudspeaker forward.
But we will continue to produce passive loudspeakers for good traditional music system (like we’ve always done)
But we will start the new decade just like we started the old one.
We say: “Guys, it’s all about the loudspeakers”.
Enjoying great music is all about the quality of the loudspeakers.
Never forget that.
It shows a High End processor inside the hub for our wireless SA legend silverback speakers.
It operates 10 times faster than the processor you find in normal wireless speakers.
The speed is important for the latency of the hub.
And the super short latency (2.6 milliseconds) means that we can have HDMI in our hub.
You can (in other words) use our wireless SA legend silverback speakers with a TV.
The most important testmagazine in the Nordic countries elected our wireless speakers “Best Speaker of the Year”. Now the 2nd generation is here to give you even bigger experiences.
The new SA saxo 3 active and SA saxo 7 active bring you the authentic and musical sound, for which we are renowned at System Audio. Together with your smartphone they are also a complete, wireless music system. The speakers and your smartphone are all you need to play your music in super quality.
Imagine this: You’re just coming home from work or a run with your favourite track playing in your headphones. You step through the door, unplug the headphones from your phone and, a few seconds later music flows from your SA speakers and fills the room with a big and rich sound that you can’t even believe such speakers are capable of.
The only thing you need to do is to adjust the volume to your mood.
The new wireless SA saxo 7 active is a complete music system
Our two new wireless speakers are created for you who wants to live and listen. You live an active life and you appreciate when things function in the right way.
You don’t need to sit and listen “seriously” to notice the details of the music. As an entirely new feature of the speakers, we built them to provide fantastic sound even when you move around your home, have a lovely time with kids and friends, cook, or have a party.
You don’t even need to have bring the phone to change the music. The speaker's remote control automatically connects to your phone, so you control the music experience from there.
It’s so easy that you need to try it to believe it.
Great sound is – and has always been – our DNA and lifeblood. Over time, we have developed many unique solutions to create dynamic and rich sound from the small speakers that are easy to live with in your everyday life.
The built-in amplifier is newly developed and has a so-called adaptive bass, which makes the bass notes naturally audible even when the volume is turned down. This is a unique feature for the new speakers, and it will give your music experiences an extra boost.
If you wish to, you can also connect a CD or record player, DAB+, PC/tablet (wirelessly) or even your TV. Here, you will get an incredible sound with no limits.
The drive units themselves are also specially developed for the new speakers. We don’t want to talk your head off with the technical specifications, but among other things, the tweeter have a patented acoustic lens, which distribute the sound and this is the reason why you can enjoy impressive sound quality in the entire room.
Our speakers are in an entirely different league than the mega store’s plastic speakers. That’s why you’ll only find them in places where people love great sound. Here you can seek out the speakers that suit your ears and your home interior.
Try lifting them – you’ll immediately notice the quality. See their beautiful finish. Listen – it’s amazing how well they play.
And when you come back home with your new wireless SA speakers, they are easy to place discretely on a shelf or mount onto a wall… After that, it’s just to turn up the volume and enjoy life and the sound for many years to come.
The iPhone opened the world for music lovers and made music available to all of us.
The only challenge was that the sound was never really good.
• The internet was slow
• Music services delivered poor sound quality
• There was no standard for high quality wireless audio
It is now all in place and 2018 opens a big opportunity for change for music lovers.
A change where we no longer have to choose between great sound or ease of use.
Now we can have both.
The internet is fast, music services provide great sound and there is a standard for high quality wireless audio.
Now, we only need loudspeakers for the new era.
Wireless speakers that deliver true High Definition audio quality from your mobile phone.
Because we don’t need other devices in than the speakers. We don’t need equipment that is difficult to use. Or cables.
Instead, we give you:
• Seamless operation of multiple wireless speakers in multiple rooms
• Seamless upgrade from stereo to 7.1 surround
• Hassle free and wireless connection of your TV
The new speaker family is called SA legend silverback.
In 2017 we presented 8 new speaker models and the international press gave us 10 great reviews. We arranged vinyl fairs, mini-concerts, lectures on music and much more.

Our vinyl fairs has almost become a cultural event in Roskilde. The warehouse is transformed into a marketplace with hundreds of guests, 10,000s of vinyl records and people having a good time.
People hear live music (this time with Julie Ellinor) and author Jan Poulsen keeps his beloved lectures on music. This time he talked about punk that celebrated its 40th anniversary.
We want to support upcoming bands that care about sound quality. So together with our 14,900 blog readers, we went looking for Denmark's best upcoming band. We wanted to give them our Sound Award.
A lot of music lovers have a problem because small loudspeakers are not good enough for them.... while large speakers take up too much space living room. What should they buy?
The answer is: The new SA saxo 40, a small floor speaker with surprisingly big sound.

When we are not producing loudspeakers, we have school classes that take lessons at our factory.
This is done in collaboration with the local public school and the concept is called Open School.
“We don’t recall a pair of speakers which charmed us so completely from the moment we played music through them”, they said about our beautiful diamond, SA pandion 5.
In this Scandinavian test, they say:“At Jazz at the Pawnshop, the atmosphere of the Swedish jazz inn is so vibrant that you can smell the cigarettes and beer."
We think that SA pandion 5 is the best compact speaker we have ever made.
Large and small companies often use our factory for their own work. They did it again in 2017.
Our place is suitable for everything from strategy seminars, kick-off meetings or a work-away day outside the office. Big or small.

In the US, they are surprised about the beautiful Dane with the incredible sound.
It is extremely beneficial to the sound, to angle a compact speaker slightly towards the listener.
A small, simple stand can improve the loudspeaker dramatically and make it sound like a more expensive loudspeaker.

Author Jan Poulsen lectured on his brand new book about Iggy Pop. After Bowie's death, there has been a new interest in Mr. Pop because of his close relationship with Bowie.
Vinyl is incredibly hyped. Many people buy a record player without hearing it first and it's really a shame. Many record players do not sound very good at all.
During our 6th vinyl fair we had a well-attended presentation where Peter Sejersen from KT Radio played 3 record players, inviting the guests to hear the difference themselves.
No one doubted that record players are as important as loudspeakers: they must be compared with others before buying.

Loudspeakers are often the weakest part of a music system.

Like all SA speakers, it is created in love for music, and you hear clearly that the sound has been tested and developed by music lovers.
Now, this amazing speaker is available (without extra charge) in a new and smooth satin black finish that makes the simple design appear even stronger.
We have installed invisible magnets in the speaker, so you do not have to look at those plastic knobs you find on most speakers.
It is available now.
