The Soundbar Home
Theatre with Ambisound
HTS9140 resolves the
design conundrum of how to achieve
cinematic quality surround sound and
excellent picture quality from a home
theatre system without the clutter of
multiple speakers and cables. The device is
exceptionally slim both in depth and
height. The touch controls are housed on
top of the device so as not to detract from
what is on the TV. The front is curved to
optimise the virtual surround sound from
the angled Ambisound speakers. The use
of high-gloss chrome and aluminium
makes this an elegant yet powerful
complement to your living room.
