Samsung has unveiled its new N650 soundbar at its Southeast Asia & Oceania Regional Forum today – a “mid-range priced” product sources state many Australian retailers are placing “sizeable” orders in.
Local pricing is yet to be confirmed, however, Samsung has informed ChannelNews the N650 will release in Australia in the “coming months”.
Samsung Panoramic N650 Soundbar
Incorporating its patented ‘Acoustic Beam technology’, Samsung states the N650 is specifically designed to offer “virtual surround sound”.
A panoramic sound experience is provided courtesy of dynamic sound rendering. This is said to be further enhanced by two pipes at the back of the soundbar, and a tweeter on each end.
Recognising the growth of gaming in home entertainment, the N650 features a dedicated “Game Mode”, with specialised optimised sounds. Game EQ is immediately triggered when a gaming device is connected to a Samsung TV.
Speaking to ChannelNews Samsung VP Audio R&D, Allan Devantier, praises Samsung’s success in the Australian audio market, revealing it will also release an upgrade to its top-end K950 soundbar later this year.
Previously unveiled at CES 2018, Samsung’s NW700 Sound+ wall mounted soundbar will also roll out to Australian stores this year.
Samsung Wall-mountable NW700 Sound+ Soundbar
Samsung’s new “slim and sleek” NW700 Sound+ soundbar is specifically designed for wall-mounting underneath “super thin” TVs.
Measuring 53.5mm wide, the NW700 Sound+ claims to be 41% slimmer than its predecessor.
The product features a built inn sub-woofer for a “powerful bass” despite its small size.
Samsung VP Audio R&D, Allan Devantier, affirms the device utilises its placement on a wall to leverage and increase its bass capabilities.
The device incorporates multi-speaker control technology to synch its drivers and produce “clear and powerful sound”. Distortion cancelling technology claims to further enhance sounds.
