The Mini LED and QLED TV range is not the only novelty announced these days by TCL. The Chinese brand also presented the new ones soundbar, at the same time anticipating to have another high-end model in store that will debut at IFA 2022 at the beginning of September. The products are named C935U, P733W And S522Wall equipped with an external subwoofer connected wirelessly for reproduction of low frequencies.
The most interesting model is undoubtedly the C935U, a direct continuation of the TS9030 presented at IFA 2019, the first to bring the RAY DANZ technology to the market, then awarded with an EISA Best Buy Award in 2020. Following are all the main specifications of the new models.
C935U is the soundbar that ranks on the higher end of the three announced. She was recently awarded a Red Dot Design Award and integrates the second generation of the already mentioned RAY DANZ technology. The latter expands the sound front using a particular positioning of the speakers. We speak for the accuracy of speakers placed at a specific angle and combined with acoustic reflectors in order to create a natural reverberation that broadens the sound front. There is therefore no processing to achieve virtual surround.
C935U has a rather important central body: we are talking about 1.04 meters wide. Inside is a configuration capable of playing tracks Dolby Atmos until 5.1.2 channels with the help of subwoofer wireless. It should be noted that, as on the new LG models, here too we find three speakers oriented upwards, with the addition of an additional unit that should improve sound quality and clarity. In addition to the Dolby format, the direct rival is also supported DTS: X. The soundbar is described as ideal for the new QLED C735 and C635, especially those 65 “and higher.
TCL claims an overall power of 660 W. Connectivity includes Bluetoothan optical digital input and HDMI 2.0 with eARCso you can take advantage of lossless audio, that is, with the best possible quality.
This model is positioned on a lower range than the C935U. It has 3.1 channels and a subwoofer wireless. The declared power stands at 350 W. P733W can recreate 3D surround effects through the technology DTS Virtual: X, a virtual processing that simulates DTS: X. Then there is the function Bass Boost to emphasize the low frequencies. AI-IN instead it serves to optimize the sound in relation to the type of content.
Connectivity includes the Bluetooth 5.2 with Sound Sync for connection to TCL TVs, to ensure wireless audio transmission with low latency. Then there is also Multi-Connection which allows you to pair two devices simultaneously to quickly switch between them. The equipment is completed byHDMI with ARCthe optical digital input, the analog input on 3.5 mm jack and the USB port capable of reading some types of files.
S522W completes the triptych of announcements. It is a soundbar a 2.1 channels always combined with a wireless subwoofer. It measures 810 x 70 x 99 millimeters (W x H x D) and is credited with a power of 200 W. The user has at his disposal three listening modes for movies, music and news, all specially equalized.
