Samsung is about to unveil the HW-H7500 Curved Soundbar which offers a unique audio experience and versatile design concept. Whether it is used as a standalone unit or as a television stand for curved TVs, Samsung is sure to have got everything covered.
The new curved soundbar is built with three drives which allow it to deliver sound from three unique directions. It is wirelessly connected to the TV through the SoundConnect Bluetooth function of Samsung. It also promises a surround support of 8.1 channel and some side speakers for an added immersive detail. It is touted as the "first sound bar built with a curved form factor."
Similar with the flagship sound bars of Sony such as the HT-ST5 and HT-ST7, the 42mm HW-H7500 curved soundbar is cloaked in a brushed aluminum finish. It also includes a wireless subwoofer which is typically found in most sound bars found in the market these days.
Samsung describes its latest flagship curved soundbar as "perfect for wall mounting." It's a good choice for those who are looking for a nice source of audio that's big on sound but offers space saving options as well.
With all these design and functionality features, it is normal to assume that Samsung's curved soundbar concept is not for the budget-conscious shoppers. The HW-H7500 Curved Soundbar is said to retail at $799.99. This means that pairing it with a curved TV from Samsung would reach a total cost ranging from $2699.98 to $5099.98 per set.
The 65-inch models of curved TV from Samsung ranges from $2,999.99 to $4,299.99. The 55-inch models have a price range of $1,899.99 to $3,299.99.
There's no information yet on whether the curved soundbar should be used exclusively with the curved TV. For consumers who have already made purchases of uncurved TVs, the idea of a curved soundbar may sound unique but would need some pondering at the same time. It should be remembered that each person has his own unique style. Others would go for the harmonious effect of pairing a curved TV with a curved soundbar. Then again, there are others who may think about adding diversity by pairing an uncurved TV with the curved soundbar and vice versa. With various options and models to choose from, there is no limit on how one would like his home entertainment system set up.
Samsung is yet to announce the official date on when its new curved soundbar is hitting the store shelves. Since it is attending this year's IFA event, consumers may just be able to get a few more hints.
