Miselu Teams with Onkyo and Trigence to Deliver Powerful, Energy-Efficient Digital Speakers for its Upcoming Net-enabled Social Music Device

Mountain View, CA — March 8, 2012 — Miselu, a Silicon Valley startup designing innovative musical solutions to connect people in new ways, Onkyo Corporation, a leading manufacturer of high-quality audio/video products and home theater systems, and Trigence Semiconductor, the inventor of Dnote™ full digital audio signal processing technology, today announced that they are forging a partnership to deliver the world’s first full digital speaker system for electronic musical instruments.

Onkyo is integrating Trigence’s Dnote full digital signal-to-speaker processor to manufacture a compact, powerful and low-power consuming digital speaker for the upcoming Miselu neiro, a portable, net-enabled social music device with a musical keyboard and a wide multi-touch display, and a variety of musical apps and cloud services. This innovative full digital speaker reproduces all the information present in digital audio sources to their fullest.

Adding and reproducing digital signals directly from digital sources such as MP3, MP4 and MKV audio/video files and MIDI encoded music make it possible to play the sound from these sources with all the quality they possess, without loss. In addition to delivering powerful sound quality, the jointly developed digital speakers are highly energy efficient.  Requiring only a fraction of power consumed by conventional analog speakers, Miselu is able to deliver a powerful sound experience in its small and portable entertainment devices.

“We are very proud to announce our partnerships with leading companies in the audio and digital speaker space,” said Miselu CEO Yoshinari Yoshikawa. “Onkyo and Trigence are synonymous with stellar sound and exceptional audio performance.  They will enhance the users experience for the upcoming Miselu ‘neiro’ by helping us save energy for mobility and provide longer battery life.”

Miselu will be showcasing its upcoming product and related software solutions at SXSW 2012. From March 9th to 13th the team can be met at the SoundCloud Open House one block away from the Convention Center at 501 E 6th Street and from March 14th to 17th at Music Gear Expo (booth #304) in the Austin Convention Center.
