Hisense will launch its first soundbar range into the Australian market. Announced at the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas, there will be two soundbars available in 1H 2019.
The Hisense 5.1.2 channel Dolby Atmos soundbar utilises 11 built-in speakers with four upward-firing drivers to ensure multidimensional sound. The wireless 8-inch subwoofer enables full impact deep bass. It supports DTS:X, 4K and HDR pass-through for sharp sound and HDMI, Bluetooth, AUX, USB, Optical and Coaxial connections.
The entry level 2.1 channel soundbar with wireless subwoofer features Dolby Digital and DTS technology. With the 6.5-inch subwoofer, the 40 Hz – 20 kHz frequency response provides a crisper, cleaner and clearer sound experience. Connection methods offered include HDMI, Bluetooth, AUX, USB, Optical and Coaxial.
Hisense head of marketing, Andre Iannuzzi said, “We continue to innovate with the latest technologies to provide Australian consumers with the ultimate at-home cinematic experience. This year we have put a greater emphasis on sound and the introduction of the soundbar range is yet another example of how we are responding to consumer demand.
“2019 is set to be our biggest year yet with the launch of our soundbars, together with significant audio improvements across our TVs.”
Australian pricing and availability of the Hisense soundbars will be confirmed in 1H 2019.
