Definitive Technology has introduced the SoloCinema XTR sound bar. Attendees of CEDIA Expo XTR will be able to see and audition SoloCinema for the first time in Definitive’s booth SR3.
Definitive is also using CEDIA as an opportunity to debut the company’s new logo and brand image. SoloCinema is the first product to sport the new Definitive Technology logo.
“You may have a stunning, high definition picture on your home theater system, but you’re listening to sound coming from two-inch speakers that point away from you,” said Definitive Technology’s Paul DiComo, senior vice president of marketing and product development. “As a result, you miss the excitement of movies, concerts, and games. Great sound is key to the fullest enjoyment of any media experience.”
SoloCinema XTR features five discreet channels, patent-pending drivers for each speaker element and 200 watts of power complemented by a 250-watt wireless subwoofer.
“We’re not selling technology, we’re selling goose bumps,” said DiComo. “For movie fans and gamers, the visceral excitement and experience generated by SoloCinema XTR gets you more deeply involved with your music, movies, TV programs and games in a way that no other sound bar or TV can match.”
SoloCinema XTR’s audio feature package differentiates by offering both HDMI inputs, DTS HD and Dolby TrueHD, designed to squeeze, lossless high definition audio out of Blu-ray discs.
Other than power cords, minimal wires are required: just connectors from the sound bar to the TV and DVD/Blu-ray player. The subwoofer is linked to the surround bar wirelessly with no pairing procedures required. The wireless subwoofer carries an equally slim design: just six inches deep.
“You can enjoy the same performance as a component home theater system minus multiple speakers, excess wiring and complicated set up, making it an attractive choice for nearly any room in the house,” said DiComo.
