Sharp: Dolby Atmos® at an affordable price
Two new soundbars from Sharp, the HT-SBW800 and HT-SBW460, have built-in Dolby Atmos® to provide a 3D cinematic experience without additional speakers or the expense of a traditional home cinema setup.
The 5.1.2 channel HT-SBW800 has a centre speaker plus 2 side-firing and 2 up-firing speakers for the full Atmos effect, bouncing sound off the walls and ceiling of the room to help place each sound accurately around the listener for the best movie experience.
The slightly less powerful HT-SBW460 is capable of adding height and creating a 3D sound-scape from a small 3.1 channel soundbar with no up-firing drivers.
Both units have 2 x HDMI inputs + 1 x HDMI output – these have 4K pass-through in addition to ARC CEC functions. Bluetooth 4.2, digital optical, aux, coax and USB ensure hassle-free playback from any device.
With 570W and 440W max power output respectively, including a powerful wireless subwoofer and a centre speaker channel dedicated to clear voice reproduction, these new models bring a cinematic experience an affordable price.
HT-SBW800: RRP £449, HT-SBW460: RRP £299.
