The Samsung Soundbar Sound+ & 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray Player Revealed!
Let’s start with this presentation on the new Samsung Soundbar Sound+ and 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray player by Jason Foo, Head of Audio Visual, Samsung Malaysia.
The Samsung Soundbar Sound+ (HW-MS751)
The Samsung Soundbar Sound+ is a 5-channel soundbar with a total of 11 speaker units – each with dedicated amplifiers. They include 3 wide-range tweeters, 6 woofers, and 2 vertical wide-range tweeters.
The vertical tweeters are situated on top of the unit and spray audio vertically to expand the sound image. The vertical tweeters also feature ‘Height Channel Up-mix’ technology, which allows you to enjoy a 3D surround sound as if you are actually experiencing sound of a flight or a bird over the sky.
The Soundbar Sound+ features an Ultra High Quality (UHQ) 32-bit audio, which provides a crisper sound and allows listeners to experience audio that is nearest to its original recording quality. The new Soundbar Sound+ will not only upscale any music content to 32-bit sound, it can also reproduce deep and detailed bass to as low as 35 Hz.
To reproduce deep and detailed bass from its compact 3-inch body, Samsung used their proprietary distortion cancelling technology eliminates low frequency distortion by predicting the distortion at the end of the speaker movement and pre-adjusting upfront. The resulting lows are smooth and distortion-free, meaning listeners can enjoy bass-heavy content as it was meant to be heard.
The Soundbar Sound+ also has 3 wide range tweeters that create wider sound dispersion from the source (cross-over range 600Hz ~ 20kHz).
The 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray Player (UBD-M8500)
