Onkyo today announced the SKH-410 add-on height speakers for Dolby Atmos enabled home theater systems. The black modules contain a Dolby Atmos-certified special network that allows the angled full-range driver to beam object-oriented sounds such as birdcalls or an aircraft off your ceiling and into your ears. The result is an envelope of sound overhead from which these precisely localized effects seem to originate, immersing your more deeply into the film. The speaker modules are constructed from sturdy wood and are finished in quality woodgrain laminate, and include two speaker cables and rubber anti-vibration feet to protect your speakers or furniture.
Owners re-powering an existing home theater speaker system with a compatible 2014-model Onkyo A/V receiver can unlock the full Dolby Atmos experience by connecting two SKH-410 speakers to the receiver’s height channels. The speakers can be placed on larger floorstanding speakers or mounted on the wall, which provide an alternative where in-ceiling speakers are impractical.
