Ideal for smaller rooms, S-Force PRO Front surround delivers a virtual surround acoustic field using only two speakers.
If you’re working with different combinations of speakers, our seamless auto calibration technology will have them all delivering the same high-quality sound. Automatic Phase Matching aligns the phase characteristics of your speakers to the front left and right speaker channels, so they all work perfectly together to deliver a more effective surround sound experience.
By supporting High Dynamic Range (HDR) signal pass-through, you can enjoy the incredible jump in contrast and brightness it brings – and the additional shadow detail and highlights further enhance picture detail and brings colour to life. Latest HDR standards such as HDR10, HLG (Hybrid Log-Gamma) and Dolby Vision™ are supported.
