Up to 9.2.4 channels of Extreme Sound
Dolby Atmos® transports you from the ordinary into the extraordinary with breathtaking, moving audio that fills your room and flows all around you, even overhead.
DTS:X delivers individual sounds anywhere in your room and moves them around in a 3D space, including above you. With older formats, sounds only move front to rear and left to right, but not up and down like DTS:X.
Front Surround Effects Tweeters
Our revolutionary Surround Effects Tweeters reflect sound off walls and ceiling, delivering a 35% wider soundstage filled with dynamic surround details for a more immersive home theater.
2-Way Surround Speakers
Discover never-heard-of surround details with our 2-Way Surround Speakers. The tweeter reproduces high frequencies with captivating clarity, while the full-range driver delivers surround effects with power and precision.
Quad-Core Surround Processor
The embedded top end Cirrus Logic Quad-Core Digital Signal Processing chipset processes the most demanding surround soundtracks with unprecedented speed, detailed precision and lifelike clarity.
A Clean 10 on the BASS Richter ScalE
Experts agree: Having two wireless subwoofers is an essential upgrade to any home theater. Don't just hear the sonic boom but feel it with a pair of wireless subwoofers that merge to create a sweet spot with no boundary. Unleash concert or cinema level volumes without a trace of distortion. Get adrenaline pumping bass effects at all listening levels, even at low volumes.
Cinema approach: Zero subwoofer localization
Cinemas utilize many subwoofers to reproduce powerful movie bass effects that often push subwoofer limits. At home, it is impossible to create the cinema experience with only a single subwoofer, which results in localizable bass and a detectable sweet spot. In contrast, dual subwoofers deliver smooth, balanced bass across the entire space, making everyone feel right in the center of the action.
Soundbar Reference Standard for Bass
Our signature dual subwoofer configuration stands alone as the soundbar reference standard for bass. Featuring 10" drivers with massive motor magnets, our subwoofers effortlessly fill the room with extreme kinetic energy at any listening level. An entirely new dimension of bass performance, a dimension so satisfying that listening to a single subwoofer will forever become an act of compromise.
