Revolution in audio world
ONEaudio is an innovative brand under Sinotech Communication Ltd. The company is a Hong Kong R&D engineering house which has investigated the short range wireless communications over the past twenty years. We are one of the design partners of Dialog semiconductor. Our chief audio engineer, who is himself an ardent audiophile, is passionate about the perfection of sound quality and experienced in audio circuit design and sound engineering for more than thirty years.
As a pioneer in the field of wireless communications, ONEaudio redefines the possible. After years of investigation, we now proudly present the world's first DECT audio. It operates on DECT air channel and delivers the incredible sound quality without any cables and cords. You can simply bring your favourite music to life from computer or mobile and enjoy every single moment of it with our wireless speakers. That's what we call a new generation: Computer As Source CAS.
"I hope everyone can enjoy high quality music with simple setup and at an affordable price. We believe DECT solution is going to revolutionize audio product. Even portable speaker plays audiophile sound."
Hi, I am Kenneth, chief engineer of ONEaudio. I love DIY Hi-Fi from a young age. I like designing amplifier circuit and speaker assembly. While my interest in Hi-Fi design has increased with age, the innovation of technology in audio product is lagging behind. All high-end audio products are very expensive and involve complicated setup. It seems that only people with spare money are entitled to enjoying high-quality music. And even when one has spent a lot on the luxury accessories, they are not guaranteed the quality being worth the price.
I want to make a change. I hope that everyone can enjoy high quality music with simple setup and at an affordable price, and that good audio system will be a part of everybody's life. That thinking has been in my mind for 10 years.
Five years ago, I set my heart on finding the solution. I have gradually turned my engineering job from system design of short-range wireless communication to audio design. At that time, Bluetooth is the hot topic in wireless audio and WiFi is a promising system for high-end audio. Going with the flow, we made prototypes to test the two platforms. However, both systems suffered from timing error in channel sliding and time jitter in channel lock. Time error has completely destroyed the musicality and sound stage. That is the reason why most wireless audio systems cannot attain audiophile grade.
Disappointed with those two popular platforms, we started to look elsewhere. Our 15-year experience with DECT technology told me that it was the perfect solution because of its unique characteristic : accurate timing in channel synchronization and dedicated channel in data transmission. If this concept proves workable, a whole new world of wireless audio products would be opened. Audiophile audio system will become wireless, no more cables, CD player and amplifiers, and at only one-tenth of the price. This also means that even portable speaker can play audiophile sound.
The immediate problem for us was the absence of any DECT software platform specific for audio application. We had to do the development work from ground zero. This translated into huge engineering time and investment. We don’t have past reference, no one knows what level of sound quality DECT technology could attain.
Even so, we decided to play the game. For five years, we have worked very hard and overcome many hurdles, in particular those concerning sound quality. On the way, even we were amazed by the potential of DECT in our working towards the goal of hifi-grade sound. Now, I am proud to say that our dream has come true. The CES Innovation Award and DECT Innovation Award are very solid recognition of our efforts of applying DECT as the break-through for high-end audio products.
ONEmicro is the entry level product of DECT audio. Even a micro size speaker shows how powerful DECT technology can be. ONEaudio speakers are ready for production, we need your support to make the ONE big leap in our DECT journey.
