Bose Smart Soundbar 900 Features Dolby Atmos

The Bose Smart Soundbar 900 is their first model to feature Dolby Atmos and we suspect it’s going to be very popular this Christmas.

Bose Smart Soundbar 900

The soundbar market is getting pretty crowded, and to attract more buyers, it seems that Dolby Atmos is now the big buzzword in soundbar features.

To keep pace with the competing products such as the Sonos ARC, Sony HT- AT7000, Samsung HW-Q950A, Vizio Elevate, Klipsch Cinema 1200, and others, Bose has now come to the table with its own Dolby Atmos equipped unit, the Smart Soundbar 900. Let’s find out if it might be the right soundbar for you.

Product Design

The Soundbar 900 has a sleek, low design that can fit below most TVs without obstructing the screen. It can also be wall-mounted with the purchase of an additional wall-mounting kit. 

Soundbar Dimensions: The 900 is 41-inches wide, 2.3-inches high, and 4-inches deep.

Speaker Complement: Inside the soundbar are five horizontal facing speakers and two vertically firing speakers placed at each end of the soundbar to support its Dolby Atmos capability. For content that isn’t Dolby Atmos encoded Bose includes TruSpace technology that provides a Dolby Atmos-like listening experience. 

Phase Guide: The speakers are complemented by Bose’s Phase Guide technology that supplements the speakers in the soundbar by directing the sound both up and out to the appropriate spots in the room to provide a more realistic surround sound listening experience.

Connections

  • HDMI with ARC/eARC 
  • Digital Optical input
  • Ethernet port (Wi-Fi is also built-in)
  • Power
  • ADAPTiQ input (more on this in the Feature Set section)
  • USB (for service only – can’t be used with USB drives for playing music files)
  • Wired Bass Module output (optional)
  • Wired IR blaster input (optional)

TIP: The soundbar 900 doesn’t provide connections for additional sources. AV sources need to be connected to the TV and then the TV passes the audio to the 900 via the TV’s HDMI-ARC/eARC or Digital Optical connection.

Feature Set 

Here are the key features of the Bose Smart Soundbar 900. 

Supported Surround Sound Formats: Dolby Atmos®, Dolby Digital, Dolby TrueHD

Bose Music App: Although the Bose Soundbar 900 comes with remote control, the Bose Music app lets you set up and control the soundbar from any mobile device, such as a smartphone or tablet. You can also use the app to stream music from a variety of popular services, as well as internet radio stations to the Soundbar 900. The Bose Music app is available for both iOS and Android.

Bose Music and Control App

Streaming Connection Options: Bluetooth, Spotify Connect, and AirPlay 2. 

ADAPTiQ Audio Calibration: This feature optimizes the Soundbar 900 to the acoustics of your room. 

Voice Control Features: The Smart Soundbar 900 provides support for three types of voice control: Alexa, Google Assistant, and Bose Voice4Video

Bose Voice4Video™ expands Amazon Alexa voice capabilities by not only providing control for the soundbar but your TV and cable/satellite box. With Alexa, you can turn on your TV and smart soundbar, switch to your video source, tune to a station by network name or channel number, and start watching your shows or movies.

Alexa, Google Assistant, and Bose Voice4Video can be set up via the Bose Music App.

$200 for a soundbar with Dolby Atmos? Does the Monoprice SB-300 Soundbar deliver the sonic goods or fall flat on its face?

Earbuds & In-Ear Headphones

$99 true wireless earbuds are worthy of consideration thanks to long battery life, app tuning and firmware upgradability.
