CES 2014 is around the corner and Samsung has unveiled some of its audio products that the company is hoping to debut and demonstrate at the event. These new audio products will take the form of a new wireless streaming speaker home theater system, a portable stereo system, and two television soundbars.
Starting with the speaker above, it is that of the Samsung M5 speaker that is part of Samsung’s Shape wireless streaming audio system, which they debuted a few months ago with the M7. Unlike the M7, the M5 will be a tad smaller and will feature three drivers instead of five, but will still pack the same wireless technology as its larger sibling, the M7. This allows the speaker to be controlled by the Shape app and connects to your local network, and be able to detect if your setup is multiroom or multi-channel and adapt itself accordingly.
Samsung has also unveiled two soundbars which have been designed to sit below your television set. Soundbars are great since they are slightly more compact than regular speakers and could potentially take up less room, especially if you’re tight on space. Samsung’s soundbars come in the form of the HW-H750 and the HW-H600. The former has been designed for larger TVs and output 320W of sound, while the latter has been designed for smaller TVs of the 32-55” variety and has the capability of putting out 4.2 channel audio.
For those looking for something a little more “complete”, Samsung also has a home entertainment system which comes with 6 speakers, a subwoofer, a Blu-ray player that is capable of upscaling to 4K resolution, and an amplifier that packs both analog and digital vacuum tubes, satisfying the traditionalist and the modernist audiophile. Last but not least, Samsung will also be launching the new MX-HS8500 which will be part of the company’s GIGA system lineup. The portable stereo comes with a set of wheels, making it easy for transportation, and will sport Bluetooth connectivity allowing for wireless streaming of music.
Pricing and availability remain unknown but we can only assume Samsung will be sharing those details next week, so check back with us then for the details.
