Klaussner Is Set to Launch a Wireless Technology

Upholstery and case goods resource Klaussner is set to unveil a wireless technology that links its motion upholstery pieces to a home stereo system.

Called isi-Link, the system is part of a console that allows consumers to plug in a smartphone, tablet computer, MP3 player or other mobile device and listen to music on their home stereo speakers. The console also has a USB port for recharging the devices.

"Today's lifestyles are digitally driven, so our goals are multi-faceted," said Len Burke, Klaussner's vice president of marketing. "We are committed to designing beautiful, comfortable furniture that incorporates superior functionality."

Burke said isi-Link is part of a console that will be available with a variety of power motion sofas, motion sectionals and recliners in both the Klaussner and Comfort Design lines.

"This is a new generation of furniture for the next generation of buyers," he said.

Burke said isi-Link does not use Bluetooth or Wi-Fi technology, but wirelessly connects the mobile device and the stereo speakers with a 2.4GHz radio signal. This delivers CD-quality sound that's not possible with other technologies, he said.

The console includes a unit that originates the wireless signal, and the consumer must place a small receiving unit near the speakers for best sound quality.
