Samsung has announced a new Soundbar ahead of the upcoming CES 2016 event named HW-K950, the company’s first soundbar to feature Dolby Atmos, an advance audio technology that first comes into play in the smartphone sector in early 2015 with the introduction of Lenovo A7000.
According to Samsung, “the HW-K950 is the industry’s first soundbar package to include two Dolby Atmos®-enabled wireless rear speakers. The complete HW-K950 package delivers incredible 5.1.4-channel sound.
At just 2.1” high, the HW-K950’s slim and sleek design use three forward-facing and two upwards-facing speakers to produce a rich, full sound that is big enough to fill the room, yet detailed enough to deliver realistic, cinematic sounds, from an arrow shooting across the room to a hummingbird flying overhead”.
The Senior Vice President of Dolby Laboratories, Doug Darrow said:
Dolby Atmos® has received overwhelming support from major studios and continues to expand into other form factors, including the new Samsung HW-K950 Soundbar, which allows more consumers to bring an unrivaled sound experience into their homes.
