I know. The drivers in the side/rears are larger than those in the soundbar itself. The strong suit of that soundbar is the multiple discrete speakers, which exceeds other soundbars.Those have 2.5" drivers...
Yeah, this is an interesting piece of equipment. It only has two up firing drivers, yet Sennheiser says it produces the equivalents of 5.1.4… Not 5.1.2.This is the first Soundbar that has gotten my attention due to my knowledge of Sennheiser and Neumann speakers as well as its input capabilities. I am just hoping it will be out before I have to make a decision as it sounds like a problem solver for me.
Ha! Sennheiser makes many products under the Ambeo name... including a microphone. It's probably a demo of that.All's quiet on the Western front as far as industry reviews or further demos of the Ambeo, but here's a really peculiar youtube of what purports to be a demo of the ambeo. It reminds me of the alien autopsy video, as in "what's going on here?"
Is' it a blowy day in the Netherlands (or somewhere), and is what we're hearing an audio track of rain, matched to a blowy, drizzly day? It's actually a little annoying in it's lack of explanation, and of course hearing whatever it is on your PC speakers means.....nothing.
But here it is, so you can having something possibly Ambeo to chew on.
I wanna know if this is gonna be better and less expensive than the creative labAny new info on this, it should be quite interesting especially to compare with Creative Labs Sonic Carrier. All I have heard is the cabinet design and some features (number of HDMI ports, etc.) have NOT been finalized. The speakers and positions have been finished, but the cabinet may be styled and trimmed a bit more than what has been shown so far. I was told to expect more at CEDIA 2018 for an update.
I was curios about this too. I already returned my Z9F for other reasons but I was concerned about this too.If I am reading that article right this could be a massive kick in the teeth to owners of 2018 soundbars as well?
Does that mean all 2018 soundbars that can be patched, the manufacturer will need to go back and disable Atmos upmixing?
Some bars were heavily advertised, like the Sony Z9F which has a single press button that upmixes content and gives it the Atmos height channel, this could mean that feature has to be removed?
Ambeo is a name not just for the Soundbar, but also their headphones and other equipment. if I understand correctly, it really represents another object oriented system like Atmos or DTS X, that also strives to place sounds anywhere in the room. Additionally it presumably can accept Atmos and DTS X, and output it as Ambeo.
