Five Channels, HDMI Inputs, Lossless HD Surround Processing, 450 Watts of Power With Wireless Subwoofer
Definitive Technology has introduced the SoloCinema XTR sound bar offering a sleek appearance, premium fit and finish, high quality materials, effortless installation and superior sound. While the market is dominated by two and three-channel sound bars that fake a surround experience, SoloCinema XTR features five discreet channels, patent-pending drivers for each speaker element and 200 watts of power complemented by a 250-watt wireless subwoofer.
SoloCinema XTR’s audio feature package differentiates it from the competition by offering both HDMI inputs, DTS HD and Dolby TrueHD, designed to squeeze, lossless high definition audio out of Blu-ray discs.
The appeal of this product goes far beyond power and sound, which is why the SoloCinema XTR is marketed as “High Performance… Simplified.” Its sleek design – 43″ wide and just 2 3/8″ deep – makes it a favorite among those who desire a clean appearance to complement fashionable home interiors.
Other than power cords, minimal wires are required: just connectors from the sound bar to the TV and DVD/Blu-ray player. The subwoofer is linked to the surround bar wirelessly with no pairing procedures required.
Definitive Technology provides hardware (feet and brackets) so the surround bar can be placed in one of three places: on a shelf under the flat screen angled upward and, raised above a protruding TV table stand, or mounted on a wall.
The wireless subwoofer carries an equally slim design; just six inches deep vs. the standard 14″ to 18″ cubed box. It’s so slim that it’s easy to slide under or behind most furniture.
Definitive Technology designers created a simple remote that features control buttons that are concave and convex so users can easily navigate functions in the dark without turning on the lights.
The remote also includes pre-set surround parameters for optimal movie and music, controls to adjust bass and center channel (dialog) volume to suit the program material on-the-fly.
