-Five Channels, HDMI Inputs, Lossless HD Surround Processing, 450 Watts of Power With Wireless Subwoofer-
Baltimore, June 20, 2012 - As consumers rush to buy the newest and thinnest flat screens on the market, they fail to recognize a fundamental fact: the thinner the TV, the worse the sound. That's why Definitive Technology has introduced the
"You may have a stunning, high definition picture on your home theater system, but you're listening to sound coming from two-inch speakers that point away from you," says Definitive Technology's Paul DiComo, senior vice president of marketing and product development. "As a result, you miss the excitement of movies, concerts, and games. Great sound is key to the fullest enjoyment of any media experience."
The SoloCinema XTR, the newest
addition to Definitive's industry-leading
line of high performance
loudspeakers, is the only surround bar
on the market that complements ultraslim
TVs and delivers on every
attribute desired by today's home
theater enthusiast: sleek appearance,
premium fit and finish, high quality
materials, effortless installation and
Power and Sound
While the market is dominated by two and three-channel sound bars that fake a
surround experience, SoloCinema XTR features five discreet channels, patent-pending
drivers for each speaker element and 200 watts of power complemented by a 250-watt
"We're not selling technology, we're selling goose bumps," said DiComo. "For movie
fans and gamers, the visceral excitement and experience generated by SoloCinema
XTR gets you more deeply involved with your music, movies, TV programs and games
in a way that no other sound bar or TV can match."
SoloCinema XTR's audio feature package differentiates it from the competition by
offering both HDMI inputs, DTS®HD and Dolby® TrueHD, designed to squeeze, lossless
high definition audio out of Blu-ray discs.
Design Features Even an Interior Designer Will Love
The appeal of this product goes far beyond power and sound, which is why the
SoloCinema XTR is marketed as "High Performance…Simplified." Its sleek design -
43\" wide and just 2 3/8\" deep - makes it a favorite among those who desire a clean
appearance to complement fashionable home interiors.
Other than power cords, minimal wires are required: just connectors from the sound bar
to the TV and DVD/Blu-ray player. The subwoofer is linked to the surround bar
wirelessly with no pairing procedures required.
Definitive Technology provides hardware (feet and brackets) so the surround bar can be
placed in one of three places: on a shelf under the flat screen angled upward and,
raised above a protruding TV table stand, or mounted on a wall.
The wireless subwoofer carries an equally slim design; just six inches deep vs. the
standard 14\" to 18\" cubed box. It's so slim that it's easy to slide under or behind most
"You can enjoy the same performance as a component home theater system minus
multiple speakers, excess wiring and complicated set up, making it an attractive choice
for nearly any room in the house," says DiComo.
Easy to Use, Even in the Dark
Not missing a step, Definitive Technology designers created a simple remote that
features control buttons that are concave and convex so users can easily navigate
functions in the dark without turning on the lights.
The remote also includes pre-set surround parameters for optimal movie and music, a
bass control to adjust bass volume to suit the program material on-the-fly and a SYNC
feature that corrects poor audio and video synchronization sometimes found in video
