Experience Dolby Atmos Home Theater Setup at JBL Sound Gallery
As we’ve previously reported, we were invited to JBL Sound Gallery for an intimate hands-on experience of their audio peripherals. There were a handful of speakers and headphones that were tossed around that night (including the soon-to-be-available Harman Kardon Soho Wireless), but the main highlight of the night was their surround speaker setup featuring the immersive Atmos technology.
Short for ‘atmosphere’ the Dolby Atmos sound technology reproduces music all around you, placing you right in the middle of the scene you’re watching. By that we mean hearing leaves rustling around you, rain falling above you, and wind rushing from left to right. You’ve probably heard of this name since some cinemas are now equipped with this technology like the one in Greenhills Promenade, Bonifacio High Street, and Century City Mall, among others.
For Sound Gallery’s home theater, however, the arrangement is basically a 5.1.2 setup with the following speakers:
- 1 center speaker
- 2 satellite speakers
- 2 surround speakers
- 1 subwoofer
- 2 additional speakers that project sound upward and bounces it off the roof so you have sound coming from above (speakers on shelf)
This kind of experience wouldn’t be possible without this Denon A/V receiver which has Dolby Atmos surround sound technology embedded in its core. It also has premium internal components and 4K video passthrough so you get quality hardware and performance.
All in all, this kind of setup will cost around Php200K according to Rico Jumarang, Product Manager for JBL, Harman Kardon, AKG, and more.
Interested people who want to experience this exceptional sound technology may visit the JBL Sound Gallery at Bonifacio High Street in Taguig where the staff will be more than willing to give free demonstrations.
