Samsung Electronics New Zealand has today announced the local availability of its 2022 range of Soundbars featuring a world-first Wireless True Dolby Atmos experience.
The line-up of ten soundbar models have a new design and technical improvements that deliver an immersive and captivating sound quality.
Ryan Jolly, Samsung New Zealand Head of TV and Audio comments that Samsung continues to break barriers in audio innovation.
“The latest Soundbar range reflects Samsung’s dedication to constantly strive for audio excellence by producing quality 360-degree surround-sound and new calibration features that, when paired with any of Samsung’s 4K and 8K TV range, provide the customer with a fully immersive entertainment experience unlike anything they may have enjoyed at home before,” says Jolly.
The flagship Q990B incorporates 11.1.4ch surround sound including one subwoofer channel, four up-firing channels and two wireless rear speakers for an immersive Dolby Atmos & DTS:X experience creating an atmosphere of rich, room filling sound.
To offer a vivid surround sound effect, the 2022 soundbar line-up now incorporates new technology that allows for total sound calibration to the room. This includes enhancements to Q-Symphony, which allows for the soundbar to work alongside the speakers from the TV for an up to 22-channel Dolby Atmos experience when paired with compatible Samsung TV. Q-Symphony now has the ability to connect to all of the speakers on a compatible Samsung TV to execute audio in harmony with the soundbar, maximising the 3D sound effect on screen.
For a more customised experience, Space Fit Sound Advance will optimise the sound accordingly to the size of the room, it tests room reverberations from both the soundbar and subwoofer, while you’re enjoying your favourite content to continually ensure your Soundbar delivers an immersive performance, no matter what you are viewing or listening to.
“This latest range of Samsung soundbars truly transforms the home TV and audio experience for Kiwis with cutting edge innovations like Wireless True Dolby Atmos, Q-Symphony and SpaceFit Sound working harmoniously together to optimise the sound for the room and place you at the heart of the action,” says Jolly.
As more Kiwis wall mount their TVs, customers are increasingly looking for a soundbar that offers a complementary and slim design. The new S800B and S801B Ultra Slim Soundbars reset the standard in the slim soundbar category by packing a powerful punch at just 1.6-inch in depth and includes the same level of sound performance as existing, larger soundbars through Samsung’s proprietary technology. They deliver a powerful bass in the compact form by integrating passive radiator technology with its subwoofer and with true top-firing speaker channels it produces natural, room-filling Dolby Atmos sound. The slim, minimalist design is the ultimate in style, designed to sit perfectly underneath the TV or even separate as a standalone speaker.
Samsung soundbars support HDMI eARC Connection, Tap Sound and third-party connectivity features including Alexa, AirPlay 2 and built-in Chromecast ability, offering excellent usability with casting.
Samsung’s 2022 Soundbar range is available from June at selected retailers and online.
