Samsung Announces a First – a Soundbar with a Vacuum Tube

Posted Thu Jan 10, 2013 at 11:00 AM PST by Dick Ward

The HW-750 is designed to bring some warmth into your audio setup.

Soundbars are traditionally thought of an option that's only to be turned to when a traditional 5.1 or 7.1 setup won't work for your space, but companies have been doing what they can to improve them and make them more attractive to potential customers. The latest bar from Samsung tries something completely new.

The new HW-750 is also known as the Vacuum Tube Soundbar, and for obvious reasons. It's the first soundbar around to pack a tube amplifier to give you the kind of warmth you'd expect. That's not all it's got though – it packs a gyroscopic sensor that allows it to detect height, rotation and slope to automatically correct for positioning and optimize sound quality.

Samsung's Vacuum Tube Soundbar doesn't have a release date or pricing yet.
