With its sleek design, self-contained tech, and impressive listening quality, Sonos’ Arc soundbar has quickly emerged as a front-runner in the Hi-Fi hardware space. Never one to settle for second place, Bose has just announced an offering that’s ready to challenge the Arc once and for all.
Billed as the “most immersive Bose soundbar” to date, the Smart Soundbar 900 is an all-in-one speaker that’s ready to revolutionize your home theater experience. For starters, it comes with Dolby Atmos (a first for the brand), meaning that it’s already excellent at distributing sound. As if that wasn’t enough, though, Bose has equipped the Soundbar 900 with its proprietary PhaseGuide and TrueSpace technologies. In practice, such additions ensure that your audio is not only positionally accurate but also crisp and full in all directions. Plugging into your TV via a single HDMI eARC cable, it’s made only better by the addition of convenient connectivity features like multi-room Wi-Fi music playback, Spotify Connect, AirPlay 2, Google Assistant, and even Amazon Alexa. It’ll be available starting September 23rd, though you can pre-order it now for $900.
