The new sound bar model will be on display at CES next month.
Samsung has unveiled its latest home audio product. The upcoming NW700 Sound+ sound bar is designed for easy wall-mounting underneath the company's thin displays and utilizes audio tech developed at the Samsung Audio Lab in Valencia, California.
"Samsung continues to invest in product development that fuses lifestyle and technology in a seamless, innovative manner," said Jurack Chae, Senior Vice President of Visual Display Business at Samsung Electronics. "With our NW700 Sound+ soundbar, we are not only committed to superior product design, but also to delivering unmatched sound quality to our consumers."
The NW700 Sound+ features a slim, wall-mountable design with a width of 53.5mm, making it an ideal complement for thin wall-mounted TVs. The device uses wide-range tweeters with three channels and an integrated subwoofer. In addition, the speaker offers distortion-cancelling technology which is able to predict and adjust distortion at the end of the speaker movement before the distortion actually occurs. Finally, the sound bar includes three sound modes: Standard Mode; Surround Mode for expanded surround sound performance; and Smart Mode for automatic volume and surround sound adjustments.
Pricing and availability have not been announced yet, but Samsung's new NW700 Sound+ will be on hand at CES 2018 in Las Vegas from January 9-12.
Beyond the company's new sound bar, Samsung also recently earned VESA DisplayHDR 600 certification for its CHG90 gaming monitor. Likewise, Amazon just launched HDR10+ streaming support for Samsung's 2017 4K HDR displays.
