PRESS RELEASE: E-MU Systems has announced that its new PIPEline wireless stereo audio transmitter/receiver system is now shipping and should be in retail stores now.

PIPEline has been designed to give musicians a wireless audio solution without sacrificing audio quality. PIPEline can be used as a wireless transceiver for a guitar or keyboard, or as the basis of a wireless stage monitoring system for a band.

Because latency is so critical in music performance, PIPEline has a minimal delay of only 5.5 ms, so it won't interfere with the feel of the music. A PIPEline'd musician can move anywhere within a 15 meter range from the receiver. PIPEline also has three independent stereo channels, which means that three instruments can be completely independent with zero crosstalk.

PIPEline is also a great solution for low-cost In-Ear monitoring, supporting up to three separate stereo monitor mixes, or one transmitter can send a group mix to multiple receivers.

PIPEline is currently shipping at an estimated street price of €99.99/£99.99 (including VAT). US estimated street price is $99.99.
