When I watch television, I prefer awesome sound. I currently have an old 5.1 surround system that needs replacing and current trends are to lose all of the speakers and miles of wire for sound bars. Altec Lansing has announced a new 3D Sound Bar this week at CES. Get seven speaker surround in one sound bar! Exerpts from the release after the break.
Among the most anticipated of Altec’s new offerings is its 3D SoundBar. The new device packs all the fidelity and impact of a seven-speaker surround system into a beautifully designed single unit with a mere 15-inch footprint.
“Our new SoundBar is emblematic of the reputation for innovation and advanced thinking that Altec established more than eighty years ago,” said Ike S. Franco, Managing Partner. “We were the first company to design and install sound systems in movie theatres, and we are replicating that level of sound quality in an affordable consumer product.”
Altec will give the public its first look at this new lineup of products at January’s CES and will continue to showcase them throughout the first quarter of 2014. Each will embody the company’s core commitment to sound quality. Altec’s adoption of a newer and more efficient Bluetooth encoding system, StereoSync™ which can turn two Altec speakers into a two-channel system, advances in 3D sound, and headphone audio/video production honor a legacy of innovation. This new generation of products is designed to let today’s consumer enjoy the very best in sound quality at an affordable price.
