Executive Overview

At the Sonance booth we got to see the new 46LCR SB1 soundbar. This is a new product from Sonance that is pretty unique. It has the same basic configuration of any LCR soundbar in that it requires an amplifier for the left, right and center channels. In that way, it's a true LCR soundbar where each speaker is completely discrete and perfectly arranged from use as front channels in a home theater 5.1 or 7.1 system.

What makes this soundbar a little unique is that I bought a 50-inch flat panel television, you know—back when they cost a million dollars—and now I want to upgrade. Well, with most sound bars, now your upgraded TV is going to make that soundbar look small. Or maybe you just can't fund a soundbar to fit your TV's width period. With the Sonance 46LCR SB1, you can expand the grill to make it fit the width of any TV from 50" to 65". We were told the 46LCR SB1 will retail for around $1,400. As it's new, that price seems a bit expensive, but not entirely surprising.

Sonance also has a larger model that goes from 70" up to 80" and that sells for $2,200. I am a big fan of sound bars but I'm not a big fan of the ones that look out of place or stick out beyond the TV. Sonance seems to have solved that issue here.
