Sharp HT-SL70 sound bar
Sharp has created a unique sound bar concept with the new HT-SL70. By dividing the sound bar into two pieces HT-SL70 can either be placed underneath the TV or on the two sides.
The sound bar also comes with a stand that enables users to either place the sound bar on a table below the TV or on the sides. Sharp is throwing a wall mounting solution in the package. Finally, Sharp says that they will supply different conjunction pieces in order to adjust the length of the sound bar to fit different screen sizes.
Sharp HT-SL70H has been optimized for 46-52 inch TVs and has a total output of 200 W RMS (50 W for each sound bar and 100 W for the subwoofer). Inside the sound bar Sharp has placed 6 full range speakers. The sound bar comes with HDMI and ARC (audio return channel) as well as outputs for headphones and optical devices.
The design matches that of Sharp’s own TVs but Sharp emphasizes that their new products can easily fit TVs from other manufacturers. The world’s slimmest sound bar HT-SL70 is in stores now. A cheaper HT-SL50 variant for 32-40 inch TVs will also be available.
