Samsung has announced two new Q Series soundbars, which contains Samsung Acoustic Beam technology, as well as the new Adaptive Sound feature. As part of a Samsung Audio Lab and Harman Kardon collaboration, the HW-Q70R and HW-Q60R offer higher quality sound and an immersive surround sound experience for home theatres.
Utilising Adaptive Sound technology, the HW-Q70R and HW-Q60R soundbars can analyse content played on a viewer’s TV and adjusts its sound settings for different scenes. Also, the soundbars will automatically switch to adaptive sound mode when Samsung 2019 QLED TV is connected and its AI mode is on.
“Through Adaptive Sound, which understands the sound and optimises it according to the scene, listeners can enjoy even more realistic sound for every genre of content,” says Reginald Nxumalo, director of Consumer Electronics, Samsung South Africa. “The new Q-Series soundbars carry sound quality that has been revitalised by experts and feature designs that offer an appealing home aesthetic to create a better home theatre experience for our customers.”
They offer Samsung’s proprietary Acoustic Beam technology feature. Acoustic Beam technology uses an array of holes in the speaker to create a more dynamic, panoramic soundscape. These features will feel like like the sound is being filled to every corner. For smarter integration into consumers’ lives, the Q-Series soundbars also feature Bluetooth connectivity, allowing users to enjoy high-quality music from their smartphones.
It is equipped with Dolby Atmos and DTS:X immersive, 360-degree surround sound technology, which previously was only available in high-end Samsung soundbar models. With these soundbars, consumers can now enjoy an immersive home entertainment experience, with room-filling sound and overhead audio effects. Along with the Dolby Atmos and DTS:X technologies, the soundbars have a slim form factor, with a height of only 2.3 inch (59mm), which provides a better match with the QLED TV.
Samsung’s new soundbars will be available in May. For more information on Samsung soundbars, please visit www.samsung.com.
