It’s interesting to see that Samsung is unveiling the successor of the award-winning MS650 Sound+ soundbar, the NW700 Sound+, at CES2018. Soundbars are getting more and more mainstream by the day, as sound quality of soundbars are indeed getting better, while being more affordable than ever. Also, they come with lots of features these days, too.
The brand new NW700 Sound+ is made to be slim and sleek – optimized for wall mounting underneath Samsung’s super-thin TVs, obviously. Only 53.5mm wide, it works well with a wall mount and still have great audio quality.
The NW700 Sound+ comes with three channels and slim sound technology to deliver dynamic and targeted sound for an immersive listening experience.
While the Edifier CineSound B1 that we reviewed here is indeed lacking in bass (forgive the CineSound B1 as it’s a budget soundbar anyway), the NW700 Sound+ comes with a built-in subwoofer. How well does it sound? We do not know, but we’re very interested.
The technology found in the NW700 Sound+ and its previous iterations has been routinely praised for helping the soundbars achieve powerful bass, cohesive soundstage and impressive clarity. The distortion-cancelling technology has also been recognized for effectively syncing the drivers in the soundbar to produce a clear and powerful sound. The technology works by predicting distortion at the end of the speaker movement and making the necessary adjustments before the distortion actually takes place. This results in smooth, distortion-free bass tones.
The NW700 Sound+ also supports three sound modes including Standard Mode, Surround Mode, which is used to expand surround sound performance, and Smart Mode, which automatically adjusts volume and surround sound effects.
As one of Samsung’s newest lifestyle products, the NW700 Sound+ soundbar is well-suited to be seamlessly integrated into most of home’s décor and home theater system.
