Dolby Digital and Pro Logic II surround sound
A built-in Dolby Digital decoder eliminates the need for an external decoder by processing all six channels of audio information to provide a surround sound experience and an astoundingly natural sense of ambience and dynamic realism. Dolby Pro Logic II provides five channels of surround processing from any stereo source.
Orientation sensor ensures the best sound in any placement
The quality of your sound experience is determined by how the soundbar is positioned in a room. Luckily, this system comes with a smart auto-orientation sensor that instantly optimizes audio quality once it detects whether your soundbar is placed horizontally or vertically. So, whether you choose to sit your soundbar on a shelf or mount it on a wall, you can be sure you’ll always have a superb audio experience.
