Score! RYOBI Integrates SKAA Technology Into New Wireless Jobsite and Home SpeakersPosted Jun 20, 2017
EDMONTON, Alberta, Canada, June 20, 2017 – Whether on the jobsite, your personal DIY project, or inside or outside the home, RYOBI’s new Score™ wireless speaker system is the ideal audio solution for a multitude of uses. Now available and sold exclusively at The Home Depot®, Score utilizes acclaimed SKAA® technology, which allows a 150ft. wireless range and can connect up to four additional hub and satellite (primary and secondary) speakers instantly.
“By connecting your Bluetooth® device first to a primary speaker, you now have the ability to connect up to four additional Score primary or secondary speakers instantly using SKAA® technology,” explained Brian Mertel, Ryobi Sr. Director of Product Management. “With up to 150 ft. of SKAA range from a primary speaker, these speakers can be placed virtually anywhere on a residential or commercial jobsite or in the home, such as the backyard, garage, basement, kids’ rooms, etc. and stream through your walls and floors. This would not be able to be done with such high performance consistency without SKAA as our wireless technology.”
SKAA is the new wireless HiFi audio standard developed by Eleven Engineering, Inc. SKAA transmitters work with iOS & Android mobile devices, Mac & Windows computers, televisions, and just about any product with a line output or a headphone jack. SKAA is also available as a built-in technology not requiring an external transmitter in purpose-designed partner products, which are featured at SKAA.com. SKAA navigates hostile environments saturated in wireless traffic with best-in-class reliability, and delivers uninterrupted audio with the highest sound quality to all speakers without the latency that is inherent in other wireless solutions.
“When we discussed SKAA with RYOBI, it quickly became apparent that SKAA was the perfect technology for Score,” explained Rex Whitehead, Eleven Engineering director of sales, North America. “SKAA is ridiculously easy to use - all compatible products are ready to play right out of the box. It’s also highly flexible, being compatible with a fantastic breadth of audio sources, such as the Score wireless speaker systems. Plus, SKAA receivers can effortlessly switch from source to source. And don’t forget rock-solid reliability, great range, and CD-quality sound. SKAA.com is the source for all things SKAA.”

They are compatible with any RYOBI ONE+ 18-Volt battery, include an AC power adaptor that allow for endless runtime, Bluetooth enabled for quick mobile device to primary speaker connection, integrated FM tuner with five Presets for more listening options (P760 primary speaker only), and include a high quality driver and passive radiator for clear, robust sound.
