Should be the end of 2018.
I think this is one of the sleepers of CES, and the review that I read of the CES Demo was pretty great...better than another poster on another thread stated.
That poster stated that it was 80% effective in reproducing a fully enveloping sound-field, but that is not what the reviewer stated.
The Ambeo was compared by Sennheiser to its own vastly more expensive discrete speaker arrangement, utilizing larger Neuman drivers...larger than the 4 inch Neumans used in the Ambeo.
The reviewer said he heard effects from all over the room, including overhead from the Ambeo. When comparing it to the much more expensive Nueman separates the reviewer said the Ambeo wan 80% as effective and detailed (paraphrasing here) as the Sennheiser separates. This is quite a different thing, and people should not think they are not getting an immersion effect with the Ambeo. And with 4 inch drivers this soundbar should overcome one of the weak points of most soundbars...inadequate midrange, one of the most important parts of the audio spectrum.
I'm interested in this and the Nakamichi,, and am curious about the new 5.1.4 Samsung.
