Sennheiser Ambeo Sound Bar

If you've got a hankering for more Dolby Atmos in a sound bar form, Sennheiser's got you covered. Its upcoming Ambeo soundbar — which features 5.1.4 sound thanks to a smattering of 3D formats — is getting some serious face time at the IFA conference in Berlin.

IFA presents one of the very first opportunities for the public to listen to Sennheiser's forthcoming AMBEO Soundbar. The latest product developed under Sennheiser's AMBEO trademark for 3D immersive audio, the soundbar offers a remarkably spatial sonic experience with immersive 5.1.4 sound and deep bass that has to be heard to be believed. All this is delivered by a single all-in-one device and without the need for an additional subwoofer. The AMBEO Soundbar delivers an incredibly immersive home entertainment experience optimized for each individual room thanks to its room calibration feature.

Powered by 13 drivers and the latest virtualization technology which was jointly developed with Fraunhofer, the forthcoming AMBEO Soundbar will offer a new reference in HiFi sound quality. It will be compatible with 3D audio formats Dolby Atmos, MPEG-H and DTS:X while the soundbar's Upmix Technology recreates stereo and 5.1 content as a thrillingly immersive 3D sound experience.

The sound bar doesn't yet have a price and won't be available until sometime in early 2019. But that won't stop us from drooling now.
