CES 2008: Samsung Sound Bar – space saving virtual surround sound system with Bluetooth

CES 2008, Home audio, Home cinema, Wireless home

Okay, it’s not much to look at, admittedly, but that’s part of the idea. The HT-X810 Sound Bar consists of one rather large speaker block and a subwoofer that’s designed to save you serious amounts of space in your lounge. The bar is wall mountable and has an in-built DVD player.

The connection the sub woofer is wireless too to save you even more space. The final neat selling point is the fact that the Sound Bar is also Bluetooth enabled – a common theme in many of Samsung’s sound products this year – and is designed so that (in theory) once paired with, ooh say a Samsung mobile, when you come home and disconnect your Bluetooth headset, your music will automatically transfer straight to the main speakers. But knowing Bluetooth’s inherently finicky nature, I’ll have to see this working to believe it.

It’s due out in the UK in April / May for £599.
