Enclave CineHome HD Conclusion

By

There are a lot of folks who are going to be very interested in the Enclave CineHome HD, especially those looking for a surround home theater experience that soundbars, even costly ones with high-tech sound processing, can’t provide. Nothing beats true surround, and thanks to the dead simple setup and operation of the Enclave, as well as the lowest price of any wireless WiSA 5.1 system on the market, anyone can bring that theater experience into their home. If you have the ability to bring a traditional wired 5.1 system into your home, do it. But, if you’re worried about complexity, or can’t run a lot of wires around your room, the Enclave CineHome HD will provide a better home theater surround experience than any soundbar we’ve heard.

I bought from Amazon a couple weeks ago and it will decode DD, DD+ and DTS core bitstreams, but for Dolby HD or DTS HD, you have to send it PCM from your source (and it's worked great for me.)

Enclave Audio’s CineHome HD is a wireless 5.1 system that is compact and the most affordable WiSA wireless speaker solution available on the market today at less than $1,200. Rather than connecting a large AV Receiver to speakers by stringing lengths of wire around furniture and under carpets, each of the Enclave speakers are powered by a nearby AC outlet and communicate wirelessly: no long wires or complicated setup needed.
