Onkyo Releases New Envision Cinema Products

Onkyo has released two new products to make it easier to bring better sounds to tighter spaces. The Envision Cinema series expands to add the brand new LS-B50 and LS-T10 systems.

The LS-B50 (soundbar with wireless subwoofer) and LS-T10 combine a multi-channel, multi-speaker array with DSP technology. As well as boosting audio from TV, gaming consoles and media players, these audio systems only require a single digital cable to connect. Operating these units is simplified by using a regular TV remote control since both the LS-B50 and LS-T10 are preprogrammed with IR codes for nine major TV brands and learning ability for others. This feature is also available on the Onkyo's initial Envision Cinema offering, the LS-3100.

These products double as 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.

The LS-B50 packs eight drivers (six full-range drivers and two ring-radiator tweeters) into very compact package. The LS-T10, meanwhile, features a total of six full-range drivers plus an integrated subwoofer and is designed to slip underneath the television base.

Both models feature an efficient six-channel digital amplifier with audio output controlled by AuraSphere DSP from Onkyo. Advanced algorithms reportedly manage equalization and sound pressure levels in real time to create a realistic 3D immersion field from regular PCM stereo or Dolby Digital sources.

The LS-B50 adds a wireless active subwoofer, while the LS-B40 includes a subwoofer pre-out. Wall-mounting kits and IR flashers enable flexible soundbar placement.

The LS-B50 and LS-T10 Envision Cinema products are now available and have suggested retail prices of $699 and $499 respectively.
