Forget 90" TV: Sharp Sound Bar Is Big

By Oonagh Reidy | Wednesday | 13/02/2013

Fresh after releasing a 90" LCD TV last month, Sharp is now going big on sound in the form of a 2.1Ch sound bar.

The new 2.1 Channel sound bar (HT-SB60) with wireless subwoofer has 3D Audio (Arnis 3D Sound Solution), which gives the illusion of surround sound with its soft dome speaker system.  

Costing $499, which is no bar for a soundbar, a Sharp spokesperson said demand will "depend on how the [Sharp 90"] TV is recieved" in Oz, but is designed to fit under a 60-inch TV to a 90-inch set.

But it can be a standalone soundbar however, and hooked up to any device via a HDMI cable, regardless of make, the  spokesperson also pointed out.

Total power output power: RMS 310W Soundbar: 160 watts (80W/ch + 150W) - 10% T.H.D, subwoofer: 150 watts - 10% T.H.D.

The HT-SB60 has 2X HDMI inputs, 1X HDMI output with Audio Return Channel (ARC), to hook up the soundbar to the TV, an audio input terminal and an optical digital input terminal.

"The new Sharp sound bar was developed to enhance the large TV experience - it's designed to fit perfectly under a 60-inch television and can accommodate TVs up to 90-inches," said Mark Beard, Marketing Manager, Sharp, Australia. 

The sound bar weighs 3.6 kg and the subwoofer 6.1 kg.

The Sharp HT-SB60, RRP $499, is available from all retailers.
