    Excellent (I was looking in wrong places for ie not under wireless headphones category)! Thanks for the speedy response.:cool: Unfortunately, theres beeen some initial negative observations of the wirelless adaptor over at Head-fi.org- reports of disruptive high frequency noise/feedback, indeependent to expectant white noise- however, I have my eyes on this still so it's great to know a solid and respectable UK vendor is behind it!

    Sleek Audio W-1 wireless for SA6

    We've finally taken delivery of the Sleek Audio W-1 Wireless adapter for the SA6.

    Yes, I read that post from the guy in California who was having some problems with getting the W-1 transmitter and receiver to pair correctly. It does seem to be isolated case.

    I've been using my SA6 with a W-1 wireless adapter around the office and it works great! The sound quality is definitely as good as with wires, and the bass response is a little more present. You can tell the earphones are being driven a little harder than plugged into my iPod headphone output.

    Sleek Audio SA6 & W-1 wireless previewed on CNET

    It seems Nate Lanxon at CNET.co.uk rather likes the Sleek Audio SA6 and W-1 combination - see his preview of the Sleek Audio SA6 & W-1.

    Nate also mentioned a slight background noise. I have detected a slight background hiss during quiet passages, but I wouldn't call it a buzzing noise. It's VERY distant. When music is playing you simply can't hear it.

    In my opinion if you compare the wireless Sleek Audio SA6/W-1 with a Sennheiser RS130 RF wireless headphone (considered to be a good wireless headphones) the SA6's Kleer digital wireless technology simply blows old analogue RF wireless technology out of the water!
