History and Leadership
Paul Raley, our CEO and the inventor of our products, is a musician, audiophile, engineer and mathematician. He has played guitar on stage for years, and designed amplifiers in his spare time. But Paul is also a gifted engineer with a team backing him up that can do amazing things. Paul and his team designed complex radar and wireless systems for the satellite industry and the military. In his spare time over the last 40 years, Paul has built custom amplifiers and other gear as a hobby. In 2010, at a wedding a friend asked him if he thought it was possible to build better wireless for musicians. That was the day he decided to use his talent to attack some of the most difficult problems for musicians. Paul set out to design the best wireless audio technology possible, and WiC is the result of all that effort.
We decided to launch our wireless instrument systems for musicians first, because musicians have the most critical ears. We knew if we could satisfy the taste of discerning guitar and bass players, we had nailed it. After thousands of musicians had praised the amazing tone of our products, we launched our home audio and professional audio wireless speaker systems.
One of the most important features of our technology, something that Bluetooth just can't do, is the capability to transmit to multiple speakers at the same time. Another is transmitting uncompressed, full spectrum, 24-bit audio to all those speakers. Both Bluetooth and Wi-Fi audio compresses the audio when transmitting. Our customers immediately hear the superior sound quality when they listen to music through our products.
Nearly every time a customer listens to familiar music through our products and says, "I've never heard that instrument before in that song". And that's music to our ears.
