TCL has just announced that its latest soundbar has won one of 2020's iF Design Awards. The OEM - albeit much better known for its display technology - has thus apparently put a lot of work into this audio peripheral, which may go best with big screens of 55 inches in diagonal length or more.
Accordingly, the OEM asserts that the 3.1-channel 9 Series soundbar relies more on its unique RAYDANZ design rather than fancy internal specs such as digital signal processing to deliver sound. This involves specialized rearward-angled speakers that "beam sound waves towards curved acoustic reflector units", which may ensure the resulting output is better distributed toward the user(s) in question.
Then again, this bar's spec-list is also padded out with Dolby Atmos enhancements. The 9 Series, like one of its new Sony counterparts, also has a companion wireless subwoofer so as to promote bass reproduction. This adds up to a 540-watt (W) system. TCL has stated that it will become available in May 2020, but has yet to mention a price for the new home theater-focused accessory.
