Onkyo Delivers New Soundbar System

Onkyo has debuted the LS7200 3D Soundbar System that combines Dolby Atmos and DTS:X audio playback with next-generation network casting via DTS Play-Fi technology, AirPlay, and FireConnect multi-room distribution.

Part of the growing Envision Cinema product family, the three-piece LS7200 a low 53mm profile for an unimpeded view of the TV screen. The wall-mountable soundbar connects to a separate AV Centre via Multi-channel Audio Cable, with full-scale power delivered to precision drivers (comprising two speakers each for the left, right, and centre channels, plus single height speakers) by a discrete digital amplification system. 

The AV Centre includes four HDMI inputs to connect media players and games consoles, with all components and cabling easily concealed in an entertainment unit. TV connection comes via a single 4K/60p HDMI cable with Audio Return Channel, allowing the LS7200 to enhance broadcast TV audio.

AccuEQ Room Acoustic Calibration tailors sound to individual spaces, adjusting essential speaker conditions such as output level, distance, and crossover while preventing standing waves inside the room for clear and well-focused image presentation.

The soundbar supports DTS Play-Fi technology, a free app for iOS and Android that collects music (streaming services, local files, or network-attached audio) into a simple interface for casting to any Wi-Fi-enabled speaker. Fast, stable, and easy to use, DTS Play-Fi technology supports multiple streams to different speakers simultaneously without interruption.

AirPlay and dual-band 5 GHz/2.4 GHz Wi-Fi are also included for seamless app-based music casting, while Spotify Connect lets subscribers stream direct from the Spotify application. Bluetooth connectivity completes a universal suite for wireless music streaming.

The LS7200 is rounded out with a 40-preset FM tuner, AV sync function, and L/R tone controls.
