The screens are getting bigger and bigger, the pictures are more brilliant, but what the LCD and OLED screens of this world still lack is good sound. No wonder because good speakers cannot be accommodated in a housing depth of a few millimeters, and if these then radiate to the rear, disappointment is inevitable. Our soundbars offer a quick and easy remedy because they contain the latest technology and, of course, our decades of experience in loudspeaker construction. All the qualities that you expect from a Magnat loudspeaker also characterize the elegant, slim soundbars and, of course, we have given a lot of thought to how you can enjoy the cinema experience on your own four walls in the most uncomplicated way possible.
EASY CONNECTION – WIRELESS PERFECTION
Home theater? Wasn’tWasn’t that the thing with all the loudspeakers and more cables? Not with our fully active soundbars, because all that has to be connected here is the power cable and the HDMI connection to the TV set. You then use ARC’s connection for the “Audio Return Channel.” This means that the sound from all sources connected to the television comes out.
So you enjoy not only films and series with perfect sound but also games, DVDs, Blu-rays, or anything that you receive via Apple TV, Amazon Fire TV, or other set-top boxes. Even better: if your TV set offers HDMI-CEC, and all current models do, then you can control the volume of the system very conveniently with the TV remote control. If that is not possible, you can use the system remote control supplied.
Speaking of wireless: Of course, our soundbars also master the most popular of all sources for simply playing music: Bluetooth. In version 5.0, with the lossless aptX transmission protocol, everything you have on your smartphones or tablets comes from the soundbar completely uncompressed and with the most pleasing sound.
BASS? BUT CLEARLY AND WIRELESSLY TOO, OF COURSE
Our soundbars always include an active subwoofer for the very low frequencies. Since these cannot be located by the human ear, this active woofer can then be placed almost anywhere in the room. To take full advantage of this advantage, the subwoofers of the SBW series are wirelessly connected to the soundbars; apart from a power connection, the woofer does not require any further cabling. This allows discreet placement anywhere in the room.
2.1 AND 3.1 – WHAT IS ACTUALLY BEHIND THESE ABBREVIATIONS?
Our soundbars differ in size and the number of built-in speaker systems. The SBW 280, for example, is a 2.1 system. This means that there are two channels for right and left in the soundbar itself. The active subwoofer for the bass component is then “.1”. The SBW 300 has three separate loudspeakers for the right. Left and the center channel. This is what the “”3″” in “”3.1″” stands for. Both solutions offer the best cinema sound; with the larger designs, the three separate channels enable the film sound to be significantly better than what is happening in the picture.
DIVERSE SURROUND AND SOUND PROGRAMS
To do justice acoustically to what the film director had in mind during the production, our soundbars are, of course, capable of Dolby Digital and can thus reproduce all the subtleties of the atmosphere of a film. Even more: Our realistic, DSP-controlled 3D surround sound program elicits an impressive surround sound from all sources. Three presets for the integrated equalizer optimize the sound reproduction for films, music, or even better speech intelligibility. In night mode, the dynamics of the sound are reduced to understand dialogues at a late hour without the effects that then wake the whole house out of sleep.
MAGNAT SOUNDBARS IN A TIMELESS DESIGN
Soundbars should, of course, sound good first and foremost, but we couldn’t help but design them to be very elegant and, above all, of high quality; after all, they are always prominently placed in the living room. The slim, just 7.5 cm tall housing cuts a fine figure everywhere. They can be placed on the sideboard, either under or in front of the screen.
The housings are made of low-resonance MDF, a material also used in the construction of high-end loudspeakers. You will find a device for wall mounting on the back, ideal if your flat screen is also mounted there. All essential control elements are easily accessible on the top. Of course, the active subwoofers also have massive MDF housings. The powerful long-throw woofers with a 200 or 250 mm diameter radiate to the side, while the aerodynamically shaped bass reflex tube ends at the front.
CINEMA SOUND CAN BE THAT SIMPLE
Unpack, connect and enjoy. With the soundbars from Magnat, you can have a perfect and, above all, uncomplicated cinema experience within your own four walls in no time at all. Instead of an embarrassing TV sound, you can now enjoy an impressive cinema sound with friends and family in a stylish outfit.
