A new Atmos soundbar is Out:The New Onkyo SBT-A500

We are talking about the new Onkyo SBT-A500. This new soundbar comes with an incredible design, and the sound is powerful, as well.

Soundbars have been on the market for a while. These kind of speakers have managed to keep up with modern TVs and to offer a powerful and delighting sound.

So, while HDR and 4K features are the stars on this market, we must say that the latest thing in audio is the atmospheric feature. So, customers who are in search for a soundbar, should definitely go with one that has Dolby Atmos and DTS:X features.

With these new features, manufacturers are trying to pop out those atmospheric audio formats. Probably that one of the best soundbars on this filed is the Samsung HW-K950. But, today we are talking about the new Onkyo SBT-A500, which promises to get on top of people’s choices.

First of all, we must say that the new Onkyo SBT-A500 looks pretty great. But, beside the look, customers should know that this new speaker also comes with a bunch of interesting features. But, there are also some downsides.

For example, we think that the audio quality is not near the level that people are expecting at the price. Moreover, the attractive design will not be able to make up for it. So, we think that in the nearby future, the company will decide to drop the price, at something more convenient for its sound quality.

Customers will be able to buy the new Onkyo SBT-A500 at the price of 999 dollars. Let’s talk about the design a little bit.

So, we have to mention that this soundbar is a little bit different compared with other devices on the market. First of all, many manufacturers opted to put everything into one unit, but Onkyo has decided to wisely broke the inputs into a separate box.

This decision comes with two advantages: the first advantage is that the device will be able to accommodate more external inputs, and that the speaker can be as small as it can be.

But, there is also a downside that comes with this decision. People will receive an extra box that measures 17.1 x 2.75 x 12.7 inches.

This means that customers will need a space where to store this box, which will probably defeat the purpose of a sound bar.

To be added that the speaker has a low 2.1-inch profile. This is a very good thing, because it means that it won’t block the TV’s infrared port. Moreover, this speaker can also be wall-mounted, which represents another huge plus.

Moving to the subwoofer, we must say that this box comes with a decent size, measuring 10 inches square by 13 inches tall. The company added a 6.5-inch driver inside it, alongside a 50-watt amplifier.

The new Onkyo SBT-A500 system also comes with a remote control. This clicker is similar with other remote controls from the company’s receiver’s line. So, this clicker keeps the button count to a logical minimum. Another good thing is that the layout is responsive.
