This is not a Dolby Atmos soundbar as it does not have up-firing channels. It will decode and downmixes DA (not DTS) to 3.1.

  • 200W including 60W subwoofer and 4 x 30W speakers
    • Left/Right woofers
    • Left/Right Tweeters
  • Wireless sub-woofer covers from 40-120Hz (mid-bass)

  • HDMI ARC out
  • Optical, Coaxial, AUX and 3.5mm inputs

It is a basic 2.1 soundbar that will enhance your TV sound. The lack of a centre channel, e.g., 3.1, means there is no clear voice channel for the hearing impaired.
