Scott Wilkinson ... Purpose Built

Episode 1689 (20:50)

Scott Wilkinson

Scott joins Leo to talk about more inexpensive soundbars to improve the sound that your TV has. You can get a decent soundbar for under $200. But if money is no option, the Sennheiser Ambio Soundbar ($2500) is massive and sounds as you would expect. But it's the 2nd most expensive soundbar on the market. It has 13 speakers built-in, two upward-firing for Atmos support. How well does it work? Scott says the idea is to reflect the sound off the ceiling for better immersiveness. But Scott says they don't work as well. You really need a perfectly rectangular room with no breaks in the wall to reflect the standing waves around the room. Few living rooms are like that.
