Every major TV maker now has a one of these new sound plates, or “Sound Stand” as Samsung prefers to call it. Samsung has also unveiled new soundbars that will hit markets in March/April 2014.
Samsung's new soundbars & Sound Stand
Samsung's “Sound Stand” is the latest of these flat TV speakers to be announced by a TV maker. It has been designed to fit under 32-55 inch flat panel TVs and has two subwoofers inside. It can simulate 4.2 surround sound, says Samsung.
Like most other new audio products by Samsung, the new Sound Stand can connect to smartphones and tablets via Bluetooth. It can also connect wirelessly to the TV screen. The product will carry the model name HW-H600 and is expected to hit markets in Europe and the US this April.
Samsung will also introduce two new soundbars this spring, called HW-H750 and HW-H600. The larger of the two has a tube amplifier inside with 320W output. It can stand on a TV furniture, but it is also possible to wall mount the speaker system.
Both of Samsung’s new soundbars can connect to Samsung’s new Sonos-like multi-room system, enabling buyers to create a wireless surround system in the living room. The soundbars can also connects wirelessly to Samsung’s new Smart TVs. Samsung tells us that the 2013 HW-F850 model will continue to sell throughout 2014, but it is unclear if it will support the wireless system.
The new products will hit markets in Europe and the US in March or April. No prices have been announced.
