Looking for big sound, not big speakers?

Enter the SA Silverback 1 - which incredibly are the size of a sheet of A4 paper when you see it from the front. But the sound fills the whole living room.

SA Silverback 1 is a new member of the award-winning Silverback family. It is created for music lovers looking for great sound experiences, without having large speakers in the living room.

That's how small it is. The sound (on the other hand) fills the entire room. We'll get back to that.

Because the most striking thing about SA Silverback 1 is how incredibly discreet it is, although the amazing sound quality will probably surprise you the most.

The sculptural design is created to fit into your home, without demanding too much attention.


The base model comes with active connections (power cable) per speaker as well as RCA connection options. This allows you to connect a pre-amp or streamer directly to the Speaker.

The Wireless Hub option gives you a wide range of connectivity options including HDMI, Optical, Coaxial and RCA in giving you a complete wireless streaming solution for a wide range of connectivity requirements.

Can be placed anywhere

Hang it on the wall (with one screw) or place it on a shelf. A power cord is all it needs to become part of a wireless music system or home theatre.

Amazing sound experiences have been enjoyed by those who have been willing to buy an expensive music system with exotic equipment and plenty of wires that are difficult to live with.

Award-winning sound and user-friendliness

We've revolutionized that with Silverback. It's a family of wireless speakers that requires nothing more than a small digital control unit and a smartphone to deliver first class audio experiences. And it's easy to use.

You only need two speakers, a small control unit and a smartphone. That’s all. You don't need any equipment or plenty of wires.

The international trade press has named Silverback the world's best wireless speakers four times, and for good reason. You can connect your TV, turntable, computer, CD and games console to the control unit and integrate them into the wireless universe.

Your music system can be exactly as simple or complex as you want.

Uses the law of acoustics to its advantage

SA Silverback 1 is made for placement near a wall. Special acoustic conditions apply near walls and speakers need to be built for that location to sound perfect. Silverback 1 uses the laws of acoustics and digital technology to its advantage and achieves a perfectly balanced soundscape when placed near a wall.

And the sound…

The first thing people notice about Silverback 1 is the amazing and pleasant bass. The sound is rich and warm, even when playing at low volume. This is due to the specially designed woofers and their perfect match with the built-in amplifiers. It sounds like a much bigger speaker and we're especially proud of its inviting musicality.

The next thing that surprises many music lovers is the speaker's ability to bring vocals to life and how the sound of any instrument becomes clear and detailed. SA Silverback 1 is a 100% digital speaker that is built without the use of passive components that can make the sound unclear and muddy in conventional speakers. Therefore, it creates a different and immersive experience.

The tweeter's patented acoustic lens covers the living room with sound, so you hear all the nuances of the sound, no matter where you are in the room.

It can play surprisingly loud considering how small it is. But the built-in digital processors monitor and protect the speaker from overload, so you only have to think about what song you want to hear next.

Class D amplifier

There are two 80 Watt Class D amplifiers in each speaker and the frequency response is 45Hz to 25 KHz. Connection is via WIFI or line-in. Class D amplifiers are digital right up to the drivers. As a result, no noise can enter the system. Moreover, Class D amplifiers are close to 90% efficient.

Hence they are often used for active speakers where space is at a premium. Class D uses less power and generates less heat than conventional linear amplifiers. The output signal is made up of a set of high-frequency pulses, this is known as Pulse Code Modulation (PCM). MOSFET transistors are used on the output. Notably, these can switch at high frequencies. The unit uses less than 2 Watts in standby.

Why wireless speakers?

Wireless speakers such as the Silverback 1 Wireless On Wall Speakers from System Audio, are designed to make streaming music easier, without trailing cables. They have built-in amplifiers so that the only thing you need is a power cable.

They connect to your devices via WIFI and are WiSA certified meaning that they can receive hi-res audio with no loss of quality. However, System Audio also has a control hub that lets you connect your existing components, and send the audio to wireless speakers.
