Atlantic Technology Lowers Price, Adds Bluetooth Adapter to its Subwoofer-Optional H-PAS™ PowerBar 235 Soundbar
H-PAS™ technology delivers exceptional bass response and dialog clarity with no need for a separate subwoofer.
NORWOOD, MASS (12/17/13) - Atlantic Technology, a world leader in advanced acoustics for loudspeakers, has introduced a new version of its full-range H-PAS™ PowerBar home theater soundbar with a $100 lower price and the inclusion of an advanced Bluetooth adaptor. The new Atlantic Technology H-PAS™ PowerBar PB-235-BT is now shipping to its dealers with a new suggested retail price of $799.
Each PB-235-BT includes one of the company's BTAA-50 Bluetooth adapters that features aptX processing for CD quality audio streaming, "tap and pair" with NFC equipped devices, and AACX decoding. The PB-235-BT soundbar is otherwise identical to its predecessor, and uses H-PAS™ technology to deliver exceptional audio performance on movies and music without the need for an external subwoofer. The bar can be mounted above or below a flat-screen TV either on a shelf or wall-mounting bracket.
"A year after its introduction, the PowerBar 235 is still the only soundbar of its size to deliver this level of bass performance without a subwoofer," said Peter Tribeman, President and CEO of Atlantic Technology. "About the only complaints we've heard is that it's too expensive and it lacks Bluetooth. We just fixed that."
The PowerBar PB-235-BT features Atlantic's patented H-PAS bass system, which produces deep, distortion-free bass without a subwoofer-reaching down to 47 Hz at theater-level SPLs. The PowerBar also boasts a sophisticated DSP with Dolby Digital® and DTS that delivers 2, 3 or 5 channel experience for total listener immersion. The soundbar represents a major leap forward in both acoustic technology, performance and user convenience for the sound bar product category.
A further benefit of H-PAS technology is its remarkable dialog clarity. This is due in part to the low bass distortion of the system's compact drivers and the fact that the full range of sound is coming from where your brain expects it to come from -- in front of the listener. Most conventional sound bars only go down to an audio frequency 150-200 Hz, which requires the subwoofer in the corner or behind the sofa to carry some of the lower registers of human speech. These subtle fragments of dialog now arrive at the listener's ears at the wrong time and from the wrong direction, making the dialog harder to understand.
The Atlantic Technology PowerBar PB-235-BT is now available with a suggested retail price of $799.
