So you've got a great home cinema system already?
Are you wanting to get the latest surround sound technology and take your home theatre system up to the next level?
The biggest change to surround sound in the last 10 years is the addition of Dolby Atmos surround sound. Dolby Atmos is a true 3D object based audio system that adds the missing dimension of Height over conventional 5.x or 7.x systems. What this means is sound can come from on top of you as well as around you - so whether it is the sound of rain pouring down in a forest or the sound of the mother ship flying overhead, it actually has sound beam down from your ceiling to your ears. Nearly all modern Hollywood movies are now mixed in Dolby Atmos to take advantage of the superior surround sound experience and flexibility that it affords the sound designers. You too can enjoy this latest surround sound technology at home by :
1) ensuring you have a Dolby Atmos capable receiver or processor and
2) adding flush mount ceiling speakers as a height channel
... oh hang on - you can't add in-ceiling speakers where your home theatre system is? .... No problems - this is where the KEF R50 Dolby Atmos add-on speaker modules come into play.
The KEF R50 Atmos enabled speakers are a high-end solution from KEF designed to sit atop your existing front and / or rear speakers and beam the Atmos height information to the ceiling to replicate the vertical dimension in Dolby Atmos recordings.
Whilst technically part of the KEF R series range, the R50 Atmos add-on speakers integrate perfectly not only with R series, but also with Q Series and Reference series within the KEF range. These beautifully made and designed speakers can even be used with other brands of speakers simply by sitting them on top of your existing speakers and putting the appropriate settings in your Atmos equipped receiver. Dolby Atmos is designed to have either 1 or 2 pairs of speakers beaming the vertical / height channels depending on the size and layout of your home theatre system.
So if you want to add Dolby Atmos but can't install in ceiling speakers then KEF has an award winning simple retro fit solution for most home cinema systems.
Quote From AV Tech Media Awards :
"Dolby Atmos has become the must-have upgrade for AV enthusiasts, adding object-based surround sound (with height channels) to traditional cinema setups. KEF’s R50 is the format’s current champion, with its upward-firing Uni-Q driver crafting immersive, vertical thrills by reflecting its output off a room’s ceiling. Adding two or four Atmos channels suddenly becomes simple, and the R50 beguiles with its full-range capability and reach, rewarding buyers with the next-gen sonic experience they were hoping for. The R50 is beautifully finished, sporting a piano gloss lacquer offset by the contrasting silver drivers and is a perfect cosmetic match for the brand’s R Series models, yet owners of other brand speakers shouldn’t ignore it."
