The urge to pre-introduce products that will be launched at the CES seems to be high-heat. Just a few days ago (last week, in fact) LG gave us an idea of how its new Music Flow series of speakers will look like. This week, Monday evening, Sammy joined the pack and threw out a press release on its intention to expand its sound bar lineup as well as furnish the market domain with new wireless speakers that look remarkably attractive - like white artillery shells.
The Samsung WAM7500 and its battery-operated sister, the WAM6500, will utilize a proprietary 'Ring Radiator' technology that the South Korean tech giant says will allow sound to flow 360 degrees, thus creating a perfect balance between treble and bass. Credible sources indicate the new speakers have been developed at Sammy's new audio lab in Valencia, California.
Based on information extracted from the press release, the new wireless speakers will seamlessly connect to mobile devices, sound bars and TVs. But these new audio gadgets are still work in progress, and this means there might be much more coming once all the pieces have been put together.
With the market-present HW-H7500 sound bar series, and the new 6000-, 6500, and 8500-series, Sammy will have curved soundbars to play tone-in with its curved television, ranging from 45 inches to 78 inches in size. Particularly, the 8500 sound bar series seems quite interesting, as it has been described by a 9.1 channel system. This entails a central system and side speakers at each end.
Hopefully, Sammy will provide more detailed information on this at CES next week. We'll definitely have our ears and eyes open so we can bring you up to speed on what Samsung's audio tech buffs have got up their sleeves.
