Samsung Unveils New Products for CES 2017

Wireless speaker, soundbar, new UHD Blu-ray player to debut

Samsung H7 wireless speake Samsung Electronics has revealed some of the new A/V products that will debut at CES next week.

The line includes the new H7 Wireless Speaker, a new soundbar and a new Ultra HD Blu-ray player, all featuring the company’s newest audio technology.

Audio quality is the focus of the roster. Highlighted across the new lineup is Ultra High Quality audio, Samsung’s proprietary technology that up-converts audio to 32 bits from any source that provides 8-bit to 24-bit sound, for both wired and wireless connections.

Samsung said the new audio spec applies distortion-canceling technology, which reduces sound alterations by predicting the movement of internal speaker units in advance, and controlling the units to deliver more accurate sound. This effect works particularly well on a woofer, the company said, because woofers tens to output a powerful low-pitched sound with a movement bigger and more unpredictable than other speaker units. The distortion cancelling algorithm can intelligently predict a woofer’s movement, control it, and stabilize the sounds at a low pitch.

Samsung’s new sound profile also includes a wideband tweeter, which expands and broadens the sweet spot in any room, widening the area where optimal sound can be heard, the company claims, and a crystal amplifier that removes noise.

The new audio spec is highlighted in the new H7 wireless speaker, a winner of a 2017 CES Innovation Award.

The UHQ 32-bit audio technology, combined with a bass response going down to 35Hz, delivers a wide sound range across the human auditory field, from high to low frequencies.

Design-wise, it features a sleek, contemporary metal finish, compact size and a retro exterior.

The design of the speaker also has a more intuitive user experience supported by wheel control, said Samsung. By turning the wheel, users can not only adjust the volume but also select their favorite playlist from their choice of streaming music services.

The new MS750 soundbar is Samsung’s first to embed subwoofer performance directly into the primary unit. This ensures that the bass is equalized and crystal clear, the company said. Overall, the MS750 is said to provide a deeper sense of immersion. This is a result of superior up-firing capabilities and overhead sound that uses vertical tweeters with up-mixing technology. 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.
