A new soundbar and compact TV sound system have been revealed.
Last week at IFA 2015 in Berlin, Harman detailed the latest additions to its JBL home audio lineup. The upcoming JBL Cinema SB250 soundbar and JBL Boost TV are designed to offer enhanced audio for a customer's TV.
"The JBL Cinema SB250 instantly enhances that at-home TV viewing experience through superior sound that makes you feel like part of the action," said
The Cinema SB250 is a 200-watt soundbar system with a wireless subwoofer. In addition, the soundbar features Bluetooth connectivity for streaming music from mobile devices and uses optical and analog connections. Likewise, the device offers Dolby Digital and Harman virtual surround sound and JBL SoundShift tech.
Meanwhile, Harman is also releasing the JBL Boost TV. The ultra-compact 30W speaker is only 15-inches long and features a simple plug-and-play setup with 2 X 50mm transducers and a 60Hz - 20kHz frequency response. The speaker also offers virtual surround sound, optical digital out with Dolby Digital, and wireless Bluetooth streaming.
"The Boost TV delivers impactful sound precisely designed to elevate the small screen experience for home viewers," said
The JBL Cinema SB250 soundbar ($300) and JBL Boost TV ($200) will both be available in October.
