Samsung unveils distortion cancelling soundbar

Samsung Electronics unveiled a new premium lifestyle soundbar at CES 2018, the NW700 Sound+.

The wall-mountable NW700 Sound+ soundbar succeeds the MS650 Sound+ model and incorporates sound-enhancing features, such as distortion-cancelling, wide-range tweeters and multi-speaker control.

The NW700 Sound+ soundbar sports a slim external design optimised for wall mounting underneath Samsung’s super-thin televisions.

The 53.5mm-width soundbar, which seamlessly works with a wall mount TV, is 41% narrower than the previous soundbar model.

The monolithic soundbar adopts three channels and slim sound technology to deliver dynamic and targeted sound for an immersive listening experience.

The body of the soundbar also has a built-in subwoofer, eliminating the need for an external subwoofer and contributing to a clean, slender design for a home entertainment space.

Samsung director of consumer electronics Mike van Lier, “Samsung continues to invest in product development that fuses lifestyle and technology in a seamless, innovative manner.

“With our NW700 Sound+ soundbar, we are not only committed to superior product design, but also to delivering unmatched sound quality to our consumers.”

The technology found in the NW700 Sound+ and its previous iterations has been routinely praised for its role in achieving powerful bass, cohesive soundstage and impressive clarity.

The distortion-cancelling technology has also been recognised for effectively syncing the drivers in the soundbar to produce a clear and powerful sound.

The technology works by predicting distortion at the end of the speaker movement and making the necessary adjustments before the distortion takes place.

This results in smooth, distortion-free bass tones.

The NW700 Sound+ also supports three sound modes including Standard Mode, Surround Mode, which is used to expand surround sound performance, and Smart Mode, which automatically adjusts volume and surround sound effects.

As one of Samsung’s newest lifestyle products, the NW700 Sound+ soundbar aims to be well-suited to seamlessly integrated into most home décor and home theatre systems.
