New Additions to the Envision Cinema Line: LS-B40/LS-B50 Soundbar Systems, LS-T10 TV Speaker System Make Global Debut

Onkyo aims to bring cinematic sound to listening rooms where space or budget preclude use of a multi-speaker surround-sound setup by introducing two Envision Cinema soundbar systems and an innovative all-in-one TV-base speaker system.

The LS-B40 three-way soundbar, LS-B50 two-way soundbar with wireless subwoofer, and LS-T10 speaker system combine a multi-channel, multi-speaker array with powerful DSP to fill rooms with panoramic sound. As well as boosting audio from TV, gaming consoles, and media players, these audio systems are among the easiest to use of any on the market. All require a single digital cable to connect and are operated using the TV remote controller, with preprogrammed IR codes for nine TV brands and learning ability for others. This handy feature is also available on Onkyo’s initial Envision Cinema offering, the LS3100 Living Speaker System.

Adding even further value, these products double as powerful home hi-fi systems with Bluetooth technology for wireless audio streaming via mobile and PC. USB ports are also included to play audio from flash-memory-enabled media players such as smartphones, tablets, and mass storage-class devices.

For expansive sound in the living room, bedroom, or kitchen, both soundbars pack eight drivers (six full-range drivers and two ring-radiator tweeters for the LS-B50, and two bass woofers, four mid-range drivers, and two tweeters for the LS-B40) into very compact dimensions. The LS-T10, meanwhile, features a total of six full-range drivers plus an integrated subwoofer, and is designed to slip neatly underneath the television base.

All three models feature an efficient six-channel digital amplifier with audio output controlled by AuraSphere DSP. Algorithms for equalization and sound pressure level management create a realistic 3D immersion field from regular PCM stereo or Dolby® Digital sources. Unlike rival DSP technologies, AuraSphere expands the traditional sweet spot (the area directly in front of the TV where audio sounds best) to create an all-enveloping 3D soundfield that places the listener in the center of the action wherever they are in the room.

Three sound modes optimize playback of different content, with News Mode cleaning up and projecting dialog more intelligibly, Movie Mode shaping for greater realism and impact, and Music Mode equalizing for a more balanced and engaging listen.

The LS-B50 adds a separate wireless active subwoofer for deep-reaching bass impact from almost anywhere in the room, while the LS-B40 incorporates two bass woofers and a subwoofer pre-out. Wall-mounting kits and IR flashers enable flexible placement.

With the release of the LS-B40, LS-B50, and LS-T10, Onkyo reaffirms its position as the leading supplier of home entertainment solutions to suit every lifestyle and budget, from compact TV audio systems to audiophile-grade 9.2-channel home theater installations.
