Samsung boosts audio quality with CES trio

Samsung Electronics has revealed some of the new A/V products that will debut at CES next week.

Samsung said its new AV products all emphasize sleek, simplistic designs and enhanced integration across multiple devices.

According to Samsung, their new speaker is able to convert regular 8 or 24-bit audio files into 32-bit, which is a more detailed file allowing for greater sound quality and less distortion.

The last item in the lineup, and the only not to be exclusively focused on audio, is the UBD-M9500 Ultra HD Blu-ray player, a follow-up to the company's UBD-K8500 player released earlier this year. The distortion cancelling algorithm can intelligently predict a woofer's movement, control it, and stabilize the sounds at a low pitch. The MS750 takes a different approach, packing the subwoofer right into the body of the soundbar. The new profile also includes "Crystal Amplifier" that removes noise so consumers can enjoy the most accurate and precise sound across the widest range. First up is the H7 Wireless Speaker, which combines the UHQ 32-bit audio technology with a bass response that can go down to 35Hz.


Yes, it's time to store another piece of jargon into those memory banks of yours, as UHQ becomes the new buzzword for high-resolution audio, an area already dominated by terms like "lossless" and "FLAC" which connect to each other simply because "FLAC" is a type of "lossless" audio. It has a clean design with a metal housing and sports a wheeled control setup. By turning the wheel, users cannot only adjust the volume but also select their favorite playlist from their choice of streaming music services. The new soundbar has the subwoofer fitted into the main unit, rather than have a separate wireless unit. When paired with the Samsung Smart Remote Control, the room's home audio is powered by the same device as the TV unit, further simplifying the experience. In addition, the device offers superior up-firing capabilities with overhead sound that uses vertical tweeters with upmixing technology. The company describes this model as optimized for HDR (high dynamic range), with Bluetooth streaming functionality and Samsung Smart Remote integration, making it flawless for owners of Samsung TVs. This eliminates the need to manually adjust the audio or pictures.

The wall-mount solution on Samsung's newest home audio systems has also been improved, with an optional, easy to install I-shaped bracket connecting the TV directly to the soundbar.

Then there's the M9500 UHD Blu-ray player, which Samsung says is optimised for HDR content.

Another headline feature of the M9500 is its new Private Cinema Mode, which lets you output the deck's audio to Bluetooth headphones for late night UHD BD viewing - or watching a UHD BD while everyone else in the room is doing something else!
