Samsung raises bar in sound systems

WITH the theme “raise the bar,” Samsung Electronics released three new soundbar models: HW-K950, HW-MS751 and HW-MS6501, which promotes a theatre-like sound system to be used at home and can wirelessly connect to multiple devices all at once.

The new models that are designed in the company’s Audio Lab in California introduce three key features--cinematic sound quality, powerful bass and wireless connectivity.

The soundbars also stray from their usual structure wherein only one amplifier is dedicated to one channel, as Samsung built one amplifier each for every speaker, providing a wider range and better sound quality.

It is also available in all sizes and designs that are compatible to any TV width and structure.

The first model in their industry that has been powered by Dolby Atmos Technology is the Samsung Soundbar HW-K950.

It comes with a 5.1.4 channel system, meaning there are five traditional surround speakers spreading to front left, front right, center, top left and top right directions; one subwoofer that is automatically connected to the soundbar; and four up-firing speakers, allowing sound to travel in all directions.

The package is equipped with 15 speakers in total with wide-range tweeters and 4K pass-through.

The soundbar also comes with six sound modes, such as Standard, Music, Movie, Clear Voice, Sports, and Night Mode.

Meanwhile, the two new Soundbar Sound+ models, HW-MS751 and HW-MS6501 has 11 built-in speakers and also have five channels with six woofers, three tweeters  and two vertical tweeters.

The difference between the two models is that HW-MS751 has a built-in subwoofer, making it the first of Samsung’s Soundbars to have such a feature. 

The Sound+ line-up has improved qualities such as the “Ultra High Quality 32-bit Audio,” which lets out a sound quality that is almost as clear as its original recording; “Height Channel Up-Mix Technology” that produces a surround-sound effect; “Long-excursion Technology” which improves speaker movement, “Multi-speaker Control Technology” that enables all speaker units to produce sound at the same time; and the “Distortion-cancelling technology” which makes sure that no disruption of audio signals will occur.

The new products have been revealed through a press launch last Aug. 1 at the One Global Place in Taguig City.

Samsung also announced its nationwide 38 percent discount promo on their selected soundbars from Aug. 10 to Sept. 17.
