Hong Kong – May 17, 2016 – Samsung Electronics H.K. Co. Ltd. today introduced the latest Curved Soundbars HW-J8501R/ZK, HW-J7501R/ZK and HW-J6501R/ZK, providing users with an impeccable audio-visual experience as the perfect match to Samsung’s 2016 SUHD TV and Curved UHD TV series. To meet a wide range of different user needs, Samsung also expanded its audio lineup with Soundbar HW-K450/ZK – the ultimate pair to Samsung’s 2016 UHD TV series. 

“Growing consumer demand for high-quality home audio experience attributed to Samsung’s dedication to develop world-class innovative audio technology and high-standard audio products. We aim to deliver a truly immersive and all-round audio-visual experience to users,” said Ellen Fu, Director of Consumer Electronics, Samsung Electronics H.K. Co., Ltd. “Each of Samsung’s Soundbars is released only after the meticulous inspection of world-class sound experts, ensuring users the most natural and lifelike sound quality.” 

All-New Curved Soundbars Fit Perfectly with the Latest Curved TV Series

Samsung’s latest Curved Soundbars HW-J8501R/ZK, HW-J7501R/ZK and HW-J6501R/ZK accentuate the beautiful curve of Samsung TV with an elegant metal finish. Users can wall-mount it, or place it horizontally to enjoy its outstandingly immersive sound effect. With a sleek and aesthetically-pleasing design, the Curved SoundBar is a must-have item for Samsung’s Curved TVs of 49-inches to 78-inches, for users to enjoy seamless audio-visual moments.

Enhanced Cross-Over Enables Impeccable Sound Quality

The new Curved Soundbars HW-J8501R/ZK, HW-J7501R/ZK and HW-J6501R/ZK feature multiple amplifiers, vastly minimizing the chance of sound distortions. The sound system entails Multi-Amp customization, a technology adapted only by Hifi systems, to utilize each speaker in accordance to their respective optimum frequency, which are then combined to create the best sound possible.

Curved Soundbar HW-J8501R/ZK comes with a center speaker designated exclusively for dialogues which have a sound frequency higher than 150Hz. This central unit recreates the condition in natural conversations, where human voices are directed towards the face of the listener, allowing users to experience uplifted voice clarity. When paired with Samsung’s 65-inched or 78-inched Curved TV, audience can convert their homes into private theatres with the least of effort.

Embedded Streaming Applications Makes It a Great Music Player

All Curved Soundbars are pre-installed with streaming applications that can be activated via user’s mobile music applications. Users can create their own music studio by grouping or de-grouping the Soundbars with other Samsung multi-room speakers for them to play together, or work as a surround system. Unlike the case of using Bluetooth, users need not worry about battery consumption of mobile device when streaming music or interruption of incoming calls or messages when playing music, as the speaker uses its own streaming applications.

A Great Companion to UHD TV

Samsung also enhances its audio line-up with the latest Soundbar HW-K450/ZK, which features Surround Sound Expansion to deliver incredibly realistic sound effects while watching movies or listening to music. Soundbar HW-K450/ZK works best when paired with Samsung 2016 UHD TV series.

Superior Sound Guaranteed by Sound Experts

In 2014, Samsung established the Audio Lab in California, U.S.A., as part of its commitment to world-class innovation in audio technology. Top experts around the globe perform precise procedures to ensure that every Soundbar produced delivers the most amazing sound quality. The anechoic chamber in Samsung Audio Lab allows staff to meticulously measure sound qualities from all directions, and refine sound-tuning technology in perfect conditions.
