VIZIO America adds three sound bars for home theatres

VIZIO America has added three new additions to its portfolio of home audio solutions with the 29" and two 38" sound bars in various home theatre configurations. They all offer advanced features such as built-in Bluetooth and integrated deep bass technology.

The 29"and 38" sound bars all share a design inspired by VIZIO's near-borderless M-Series Razor LED 1 smart TV collection and feature advanced DTS audio technology, which enables an immersive surround-sound environment with consistent listening volume, and built-in Bluetooth for direct streaming from smartphones or tablets.

Thanks to its compact size, the 29" 2.0 channel Home Theater Sound Bar for small size HDTVs can also be used as a standalone wireless sound system in the kitchen, patio or other room using built-in Bluetooth to stream music from Bluetooth-compatible mobile devices without the need for a TV.

For consumers looking to add an extra bass boost to their movies and music without an external subwoofer, VIZIO's 38" 2.0 Sound Bar with Integrated Deep Bass adds the low-end frequency typically missing from today's thin HDTVs.

"Our new 29'' and 38'' sound bars have been engineered to elevate the home audio experience, regardless of screen size or room configuration," said John Schindler, VIZIO vice president of product management. "We are excited to further expand our home audio collection, adding to the already popular 42'' 2.1 and 5.1 Home Theater Sound Bars which are great for consumers looking to pair immersive audio with their larger screens."

To kick off the launch, the company is running a promotion: through its online social community, VIZIO Fandemonium, fans can get exclusive access to a custom Pandora station and a chance to win a home theatre sound bar featuring DTS audio technology. VIZIO Fandemonium provides fans with the chance to earn points by sharing and expressing their enthusiasm for sports, music, movies, games and more. Registered fans can accrue points through a wide range of activities, from social media interaction to visiting retailer websites and registering products on Points can then be redeemed for a wide range of prizes.

"We're excited to team up with Pandora and DTS to celebrate the final days of summer with a great collection of tunes and the opportunity for VIZIO fans to check our award-winning audio collection that gives audiophiles the best and most convenient home audio experience," said Lily Knowles, vice president of product marketing. "While fans check out the 'Summer Soundemonium' playlist on Pandora, they can have the chance to take their audio experience to the next level by entering to win great prizes."
