LG Electronics (LG) announced the HX996TS, its first ever Real 3D Sound Home Theater System. Using innovative new approaches to delivering sound, the HX996TS provides the perfect soundtrack for watching movies in 3D.
The HX996TS's outstanding sound quality comes via three key innovations. The first, the Vertical 3D Effect Channel, emits sound through the tops of the HX996TS's four Tallboy Speakers to expand the sound field up to the ceiling. The resulting audio waves fill the space above viewers' heads, creating the illusion that they are right in the middle of the movie.
The second part of the HX996TS's 3D sound comes via its dual subwoofers. Instead of the conventional single subwoofer, two subwoofers are placed on the opposite sides of the television, greatly enriching the overall sound quality. The dual subwoofers add a room-filling, “low attack” undercurrent to the audio for a strikingly realistic soundtrack.
Completing the 3D sound experience is the Cinema Dome Effect, which perfects 3D sound via LG's unique DSP algorithm. LG's DSP algorithm also analyzes individual audio channels in real-time, guaranteeing seamless sound tracking. The combined end effect is an upwards and backwards expansion of the sound field, putting viewers right at the heart of the sound.
The HX996TS's design — parabolic units atop sturdy, wide bases — is both stylish and also helps create a richer, more powerful sound. In addition, a classy glazed finish, gradated in 3D blue on its lower section, enhances the dimensional look of the speaker.
