Definitive Technology Debuts Its Lowest Profile Sound Bar To Date

W Studio Micro Delivers Full-Range Audiophile-Grade Sound in a Sleek, Elegant Package

VISTA, Calif., Sept. 2, 2015 -- Definitive Technology, the market leader in high-end loudspeaker solutions, today announced the latest addition to its Wireless Collection, the W Studio Micro. Designed to deliver audiophile-grade home theater sound in an ultra-slim package, the W Studio Micro sound bar system (MSRP $899) stands at just 1.75 inches tall, seamlessly blending into any home theater environment. The beautifully designed cabinet features a brushed black-anodized aluminum top panel that encloses seven individual drivers, producing perfectly balanced home theater sound to fill any room. Part of Definitive Technology's Wireless Collection of DTS Play-Fi connected speakers and products, the W Studio Micro can stream all of your music in rich, full fidelity anywhere in the home from any smartphone, tablet or PC.


Inspired by minimalist trends in home decor and TV design, the W Studio Micro houses state-of-the-art audio technologies in a low-profile package for a best-in-class performance. The 3.1 wireless home theater sound bar and music streaming system boasts four 3-by-1-inch mid-woofers with neodymium magnets for outstanding mid and low range frequencies, and three 1-inch aluminum dome tweeters for crystal-clear highs and a completely immersive listening experience. Powering the impressive driver array are seven discrete channels of amplification, giving the W Studio Micro an extraordinary sound stage, vocal clarity and overall volume. The included 8-inch down-firing wireless subwoofer provides deep, tight bass, rounding out the sonic range with fantastic detail.

"Staying true to Definitive Technology's extensive experience developing audiophile-grade home theater speakers in the most compact form factors achievable, we meticulously designed the W Studio Micro with a clean aesthetic that easily integrates with nearly any modern TV, while also providing incredible sound for even the most discerning listeners," said Joel Sietsema, director of brand management at Definitive Technology. "In our research, we learned it was incredibly difficult to find great performance in slim sound bars less than 2-inches in height due to a lack of cabinet volume or a lack of advanced driver technologies. What our team has achieved acoustically, technically and in such a beautifully designed package, is truly remarkable."

Designed to decode Dolby Digital 5.1 and DTS certified, the sound bar will interpret a 5.1 surround sound signal and, using the configuration of the seven drivers, deliver room-filling sound to any space. In addition, a Music and Movie mode are supported. When in Music mode, the W Studio Micro supports a wider frequency response with added clarity and accuracy for faithful reproduction of your favorite artist. With Movie mode, the sound bar's low-profile design supports a refined sound field with reduced diffraction and increased dispersion, adding more height and depth for a more immersive experience. At 43 inches wide, the W Studio Micro is the ideal complement to any large flat screen television, blending perfectly underneath without imposing on the bottom edge of the screen. Two optical inputs make setup a breeze, and users need only to plug it into the television and power it on.

For wireless music listening, consumers simply power up the sound bar, download the free Definitive Technology app, and connect the W Studio Micro to their home Wi-Fi network. Once connected, listeners can play music from popular services like Pandora, Spotify Connect and Sirius XM, thousands of Internet radio stations such as CNBC, NPR, and Fox News, and from personal libraries. As a component of the Wireless Collection, the W Studio Micro is also designed to fit in the whole-home, wireless music ecosystem and can be connected with other speakers using the open platform of DTS Play-Fi Technology. An update to the popular Definitive Technology app will be available in the coming months, which will include improvements to the usability and control of the Definitive Technology Wireless Collection, with special attention paid to the set up process and graphical user interface.

Definitive Technology's W Studio Micro is now available for pre-order at $899 on www.definitivetech.com, and at other fine retailers like Magnolia locations inside Best Buy stores, Amazon.com, and Crutchfield.com.
