Platin Milan 5.1.4 Soundbar: A WiSA-Enabled Mid-Priced Option


  • The Platin Milan 5.1.4 Soundbar is the first soundbar to come equipped with newly developed WiSA DS technology, which enables a single transmitter to send 4.1 channels of uncompressed high-definition audio to the soundbar’s rear speakers and subwoofer.
  • The soundbar costs just $799—although even at that price, the Milan may still represent a hefty investment for many soundbar shoppers.
  • The Platin Milan is relatively compact and comes with wireless surround speakers and a low-profile subwoofer.
  • It is a 5.1.4-channel soundbar system with WiSA wireless technology for transmitting audio between components with low latency.
  • The Milan does not support Wi-Fi, AirPlay 2, or Chromecast. It only has Bluetooth 5.0 and aptX support.
  • It lacks a remote control but can be controlled through the Platin Soundbar app.
  • The soundbar delivers a mixed bag when it comes to audio performance, with clear mid-range sound but struggles with low-frequency effects and height cues.

Ted’s Take:

The Platin Milan 5.1.4 Soundbar breaks new ground in the industry with its WiSA DS-enabled wireless connection and support for the aptX codec. However, it falls short in a few areas. The lack of Wi-Fi, AirPlay 2, and Chromecast is a letdown, and the smallish subwoofer may not be powerful enough for larger rooms. Plus, without a remote control, you’ll have to rely on your TV’s wand, assuming it supports HDMI-CEC. While the Milan has potential, there are other options in this price range that offer more features and better sound performance. Looks like the Milan needs a little more polishing before it can truly shine.
