Bose introduces new Dolby Atmos Smart Soundbar 900
Bose announces the new Smart Soundbar 900 — a Dolby Atmos speaker that provides exceptional immersion for music and movies.
With proprietary Bose spatial technologies, the 900 elevates Dolby Atmos content by separating instruments, dialogue, and effects, and then places them in discrete parts of a room — far above, and to the far right and left. It also elevates content other than Dolby Atmos by providing a comparable experience no matter what one is listening to or watching.
Featuring HDMI eARC, the Soundbar 900 connects to a TV with just one cable, and packs all its technology in a trendy single enclosure. It features Wi-Fi and Bluetooth for the best of both worlds, Google Assistant and Amazon Alexa for voice control, a simple app for touch control, and is compatible with Spotify Connect, AirPlay 2, and all other Bose smart speakers for a premium audio multi-room system. The Soundbar 900 is an all-in-one unit that replaces the Bose Smart Soundbar 700, available on September 23rd for US$899.95.
Dolby Atmos Meets Bose Spatial Technologies
The Smart Soundbar 900 puts the listener in the centre of their music or movies in an entirely new way. By combining custom arrays, dipole transducers, and low-profile transducers with Bose spatial technologies, it produces a layer of realism the manufacturer claims no other speaker can duplicate.
While conventional Dolby Atmos soundbars create sound “overhead,” the 900 does more. Bose PhaseGuide technology adds other dimensions just as precisely, placing and “pinning” distinct sound to the right and left where there are no speakers.
For programming or playlists, Bose QuietPort technology delivers exceptional bass performance and virtually no distortion at any volume.
The Soundbar 900 is a mere 2.3″ high, just over 4″ deep, and 41″ long. It features an oval-shaped design, wraparound metal grille, tight seams, clean lines, and a polished, impact-resistant tempered glass top. It fits beautifully under televisions 50″ or larger.
Setup is straightforward with HDMI eARC and one cable that plugs into the TV. With Wi-Fi, accessing Spotify Connect and AirPlay 2 is easy; with Bluetooth, pairing to a phone or tablet takes seconds. Google Assistant and Amazon Alexa are built-in for voice control — and Alexa extends to taking and making calls, and enables the exclusive Bose Voice4Video feature that turns a TV on to the channel or input asked for — with just one command.
