Many of us have invested in smart TVs of late and they’re being put to good use right now as we endure lockdowns and watch the Olympics. But many of us have also noticed the sound on these new smart TVs could be better. So if you’re interested in what’s available, well-known TV company – TCL – has recently released a range of three soundbars.
After road-testing one of these soundbars we can say adding one of these to your TV sound is a big improvement to the overall experience. Rather than the smaller, sharp sound of the TV speakers, with the soundbar you get a much bigger sound interspersed with clearer, individual sounds, placed around your loungeroom.
We’d have to say, adding one of these dedicated soundbars does offer a dramatic leap forward in audio quality compared with embedded TV speakers. There’s a cleaner separation of dialogue from music and sound effects, along with reduced background noise.
You can play music videos and turn up the volume to produce audio that’s rich and loud. Each of these TCL soundbars has dual built-in subwoofers so there’s more bass without taking up more space – which is handy if space is something you’re short on.
The new range of TCL soundbars
The new soundbars from TCL are easy to setup and operate. The price for these soundbars ranges between AU$399 and AU$699 and they include:
- TS8132 – 3.1.2 Ch Soundbar with Wireless Subwoofer – featuring Dolby Atmos surround sound. Works with Google Assistant, Amazon Alexa and Apple Airplay connectivity
- TS8111 – 2.1 Ch Soundbar with Dual Built-in Subwoofers – featuring Dolby Atmos surround sound technology
- TS6110 – 2.1 Ch Soundbar with Wireless Subwoofer – featuring Dolby Digital Audio
More technology in a single soundbar
These three soundbars have 2.1 Channels with dual Integrated Subwoofers combined with the Dolby Atmos experience.
You can stream your music wirelessly to the soundbar using Bluetooth. All the soundbars have specialised sound modes for different content to provide a more immersive sound experience – whether it’s from your TV, a movie or listening to your favourite music.
Along with the soundbars, TCL has launched its first range of Google TVs
As well as the soundbars, TCL has launched a new range of televisions, complete with Google TV. This selected range comes loaded with all the audio, picture and connectivity technologies you’re after including VRR (Variable Refresh Rate), Quantum Dot and Mini LED technology for striking brightness and Precision Contrast Control.
The new range has both 4K and wait-for-it – 8K resolution – four times the resolution of 4K Ultra HD! They feature Mini LED backlight technology for more realistic colour, contrast and brightness for your picture quality whilst Dolby Atmos and Onkyo Audio combine to produce high quality sound. Further audio and visual enhancement through the AiPQ Engine real-time optimisation and the addition of hands-free voice control technology, makes this TCL TV range worth checking out.
Entertainment you love with a little help from Google TV
TCL is one of only two manufacturers offering Google TV in 2021. Google TV brings together movies and shows from across your apps and subscriptions and organises them for you. You can discover new shows to binge with recommendations based on what you watch from across your existing subscriptions and content streams. You can ask Google to find movies and shows, answer questions, control smart home devices, etc. Selected existing TCL TV models will also be making the upgrade to Google TV via software update in 2021.
