Known for their top of the line HDR TVs and sound bars, VIZIO introduced the 36″ 2.1 Sound Bar with Built-in Dual Subwoofers back in April. The sound bar looked to continue VIZIO’s legacy of high quality audio performance by combining the innovative DTS Virtual:X sound enhancement technology and hardware features; however, its retail availability was left unconfirmed. Only a month later, VIZIO announced the availability of their all new sound bar, bringing an unparalleled audio experience at an affordable price.
A key feature to VIZIO’s new sound bar is the inclusion of DTS Virtual:X sound technology, the latest sound solution technology from DTS, subsidiary of Xperi. DTS Virtual:X incorporates the tech used in its predecessor DTS:X, creating object-based and multidimensional audio experiences common in cinemas and home theaters. Additionally, it gives life to an even more nuanced sound space as it simulates height as well as object-based surround sound. Because of this simulated sound space, DTS Virtual:X makes the 36″ 2.1 Sound Bar with Built-in Dual Subwoofers unique among its peers, creating the immersive, multidimensional audio quality of a multiple speaker setup all in a single unit sound bar.
“The all-new 36″ 2.1 Sound Bar with Built-in Dual Subwoofers is one of VIZIO’s most versatile audio solutions yet,” said Bill Baxter, Chief Technology Officer, VIZIO, in the press release. “The flexible design ensures consumers don’t have to choose between style and performance. The space-saving form factor is packed with room-filling, deep-bass technologies engineered to amplify the home entertainment experience.”
Certainly, the hardware hidden behind the sound bar’s elegant exterior supports Baxter’s assertion. Encased within the unit are two integrated subwoofers with four deep bass modules, transforming TV setups into a home theater experience. Its adjustable design keeps the drivers in peak position, allowing for flexibility in placement either mounted on the wall or placed below the TV. While designed for 40″ or larger TV screens, users can also connect their smartphones, tablets, or laptops to the sound bar thanks to its Bluetooth connectivity.
The 36″ 2.1 Sound Bar with Built-in Dual Subwoofers is available for purchase now on VIZIO’s website for $139.99 and will be coming soon to Walmart, Costco, and Meijer. With its combination of immersive audio, powerful hardware features, and compact design, VIZIO’s newest sound bar is perfect for those looking to save space and money without losing the sound quality of a multiple speaker setup.
