Two new sound bar models have been revealed.
At CEDIA 2018, Definictive Technology has announced the latest additions to its home theater lineup. The collection includes the new Studio Advance ($1,299) and Studio Slim ($899) Chromecast-enabled Sound Bar Systems.
The Studio Advance is a 5.1 channel sound bar model with virtual surround sound tech. The unit features nine discrete transducers and amplifiers with three one-inch aluminum dome tweeters, six three-inch oval drivers, and a separate eight-inch downward firing subwoofer. In addition, the device offers 4K HDR passthrough and an HDMI ARC port. Finally, the sound bar includes Chromecast-enabled support.
Meanwhile, the Studio Slim is a 3.1 channel sound bar model with an ultra-low profile. The unit features seven individual transducers and amplifiers with three one-inch aluminum dome tweeters, four three-inch oval drivers, and a separate eight-inch subwoofer. And though 4K HDR passthrough is not included, the device does feature HDMI ARC support. Finally, like the Studio Advance, the sound bar is Chromecast-enabled.
"Definitive Technology has produced several award-winning audio products over the past several years. However, we're not resting on our laurels and have tuned into customer feedback to produce two new sound bars that we believe will surprise and delight consumers all over the globe," said Skylar Gray, global brand director, at Definitive Technology. "We built the Studio Advance and Studio slim sound bars to address sound, technology and design needs from the audiophile as well as TV, movie, music and sports enthusiasts. The addition of HDMI ARC, Chromecast and 4K pass through, paired with Definitive Technology’s ultra-accurate, room-filling sound, make these sound bars an easy choice for anyone serious about quality content."
Exact availability has not been announced yet, but the Definitive Technology Studio Advance and Studio Slim sound bars are now on display at the company's CEDIA 2018 booth in San Diego until September 8.
