AlphaTheta Corporation announces the new AlphaTheta brand, leveraging the experience they’ve built under the Pioneer DJ brand. As they begin this journey, they’re releasing the WAVE-EIGHT, a portable wireless DJ speaker that enables DJs to effortlessly set up and perform in unimaginable places.
The WAVE-EIGHT helps users/DJs bring the vibes to any party. With its SonicLink ultra-low-latency wireless technology, users can set up quickly and easily, then DJ without cables, something that has not been practical before due to sound delay experienced using Bluetooth®/MD.
The WAVE-EIGHT delivers professional sound quality, even when using it outdoors thanks to the speaker’s high level of sound pressure and rich bass reproduction. Users can combine multiple WAVE-EIGHT speakers wirelessly to suit the party and venue size, with easy-to-understand sound modes available at the flick of a switch, that allow users to find the right musical vibe.
Having a party in an adventurous location? Whether it’s next to a lake, on a mountain, or in the backyard, the WAVE-EIGHT is the ideal portable sound solution. With an 8-hour battery life, the IPX4-rated, waterproof WAVE- EIGHT has built-in casters and an extendable handle making it easy to transport, set up, and play in any conditions.
Since the introduction of the CDJ-500 in 1994, we’ve been making products with cutting-edge technology to help DJs excel. Looking to the future, AlphaTheta is committed to growing with the community of people who are connected by a passion for music and its culture.

SonicLink: Ultra-low-latency wireless technology to enable a better speaker setup
DJing using wireless speakers has been a continual challenge due to the latency of the audio transmission, or the delay in time between pressing play on the decks and the song being heard. The WAVE-EIGHT makes cable-free DJing possible thanks to SonicLink. This new ultra-low-latency technology wirelessly transmits audio much faster than a Bluetooth connection. Only a fraction of a second passes between pressing play on the decks and hearing the track through the speakers, meaning DJs can mix without missing a beat. Simply remove the included transmitter from its storage compartment on the WAVE-EIGHT and connect it to any DJ gear to instantly create a wireless connection between decks and the speaker. Additionally, DJs can combine the WAVE-EIGHT with the new OMNIS-DUO portable all-in-one and battery-powered DJ system to play without cables for total freedom.
Professional sound quality with effortless setup
With a highly efficient Class D amplifier, a new 8-inch driver design, and a Vortex Bass Accelerator that delivers clear and powerful bass, the WAVE-EIGHT brings the vibes and the punch to the party, even in outdoor settings. To cover larger events and spaces, DJs can easily add multiple WAVE-EIGHT speakers with the SonicLink connection. For instance, users can use two speakers in stereo for an expansive experience, or add a third as a dedicated subwoofer for a club-like heavy bass sound. The WAVE-EIGHT also offers several modes including Mono, Stereo, and Subwoofer mode, allowing DJs the ability to easily create different sounds.
Battery power and waterproof design for outdoor events
A full battery charge gives provides 8 hours of music on the WAVE-EIGHT to help keep the tunes going throughout the evening. The unit is IPX4-rated and waterproof, making it ideal for outdoor use. The WAVE-EIGHT includes a USB Type-C port, allowing users to charge devices such as a smartphone.
Find party venues wherever you go
The extendable handle, casters, and additional grab handles make it easy to carry the WAVE-EIGHT to any location. Users can mount the speaker on a stand with the WAVE-EIGHT’s built-in pole socket for extra height, making it ideal for use in a variety of locations.
