Sharp makes Dolby Atmos accessible to all

With Sharp’s two new soundbars, bringing home a 3D cinematic experience without additional speakers or expense of a traditional home cinema set up is now much easier.

Dolby Atmos is changing the world of cinema with the introduction of height to the movie’s audio. Built around Sharp’s Dolby Atmos engine, the HT-SBW800 and HT-SBW460 soundbars are capable of creating a 360-degree surround system, transporting movie buffs and home cinema enthusiasts to the heart of the action.

The 5.1.2 channel HT-SBW800 has a centre speaker, as well as two side-firing and two up-firing speakers for the full Atmos effect, bouncing sound off the walls and ceiling of the room. This means total sound immersion helping to place each sound accurately around the listener for an incredible movie experience.

Slightly less powerful is the HT-SBW460. Capable of adding height and creating a 3D sound scape from a small, 3.1 channel soundbar with no up-firing drivers, it is testament to Sharp’s acoustic capabilities.

Well-connected and easy to use, both soundbars have two HDMI inputs and one HDMI output, these have 4K pass-through in addition to ARC CEC functions. Bluetooth 4.2, digital optical, aux, coax and USB ensure hassle-free playback from any device. With 570W and 440W max power output respectively, including a powerful wireless subwoofer, as well as a centre speaker channel dedicated to clear-voice reproduction, the new soundbars from Sharp bring all of the magic of cinema into the comfort of the home at an affordable price.
