Known for its valve iPod docks Roth Audio has unveiled its first soundbar with the BAR 1.
The new system consists of a slim, wall-mountable soundbar speaker and a wireless subwoofer which is capable of working up to nine metres away from the main unit.
The main BAR 1 unit measures just 50mm deep and can placed on a stand, on the floor, or wall-mounted using a supplied bracket.
It includes two RCA inputs for connecting to your TV and a 3.5mm stereo jack for hooking up other sources such as digital music players, and inside are 8 x 40cm long throw full range drivers and two 19mm aluminium tweeters. The separate subwoofer uses a 16.5cm driver and includes 2.4GHz wireless support.
Roth founder James Roth says, “Today’s TVs look terrific, but tend to sound terrible. The BAR 1 backs up your crystal clear picture with crystal clear audio. At last, no more fiddling with the TV remote in an effort to hear exactly what your TV’s pretty pictures are actually saying.”
The Roth Audio BAR 1 system goes on sale in April in a satin black finish for £329.
