Soundbar Speaker & Subwoofer System
W Studio Micro Home Theater System: The Definitive Technology W Studio Micro
consists of A wireless soundbar speaker with accompanying wireless subwoofer
that blends high-performance home theater and musical sound with wireless music
streaming and multiroom capability. The system has been designed to deliver a
virtual surround sound experience without the need for an AV receiver or rear
speakers. Its the perfect compliment to your high-definition or Ultra-HD
flat-panel TV. Plus, it works seamlessly with Definitive Technology's DTS Play-Fi
wireless speakers for multiroom audio throughout your home.
- Active Soundbar Speaker: The active soundbar speaker
houses three 1" pure aluminum dome tweeters and four 1" x 3" polymer
composite midrange drivers for accurate, clear natural sound. A total of 90
watts powers the soundbar to lifelike volume levels to fill even large rooms
with high impact and low-distortion sound.
- Wireless Powered Sub: The wireless powered sub features
a down-firing 8" high excursion woofer housed in a bass reflex enclosure
(with down-firing port) that is powered by an integrated 90 watt
amplifier to provide you with all the impact you want from your favorite
music and movie soundtracks. An acoustically inert cabinet and integrated
rubber feet prevent against unwanted audible distortion. The subwoofer
connects to the soundbar speaker wirelessly via 2.4GHz with a range of up to
45', so there are no additional cables to run. If you prefer, you can used a
wired minijack (3.5mm) connection between the powered sub and the soundbar. The wireless powered sub
require AC power.
Spatial Array w/ SRS TruSurround: Spatial Array
Surround w/ SRS TruSurround technology uses subtle, but complex directional cues
to completely free the sound from the speaker enclosure and convince your
ear/brain listening mechanism that you are surrounded multiple speakers. In
addition to surround sound enhancement, it improves dialog clarity and maximizes
bass response. Since both of the technologies do not depend on
bouncing sound off walls, it works in virtually any room and set-up
Dolby Digital & DTS Processing: The W Studio Micro
supports Dolby Digital and DTS format (up to 5.1ch) for maximum audio performance. You will
enjoy music and movies with full dynamic impact and the highest definition,
clarity and detail.
Digital + Analog Inputs: The W Studio Micro
soundbar speaker has both digital and analog inputs with two optical (toslink)
digital inputs and one analog (3.5mm) minijack input allowing you to connect your Blu-Ray player, cable/satellite
tuner, gaming console as well as a legacy source such as a VCR. The optical digital inputs
support 2.1ch to 5.1ch audio. The analog minijack input supports 2ch audio only.
Note: The digital optical output terminals of most newer
flat-panel TVs only send an audio signal in 5.1ch when receiving Dolby
Digital/DTS surround sound from the TV's built-in tuner, network connection,
or connected USB device; and will output only 2ch stereo from sources
connected to the TV via HDMI, or RCA (like your Blue-ray/DVD player or
satellite/cable box). That's why Crutchfield recommends connecting your
Blu-ray/DVD player and cable/satellite receiver directly to the W
Studio Micro soundbar speaker's two optical digital inputs.
Audio Settings: The W Studio soundbar speaker system offers
a variety of audio adjustments to enhance your overall listening experience.
- Music/Movie Modes: The Music/Movie modes optimize the
system's sound characteristics such as bass level and surround effect
intensity to best match what you're listening to - a movie or music
- Bass Control: The remote's Bass control lets you
optimize the system's bass loudness to match the program material, your
taste or your mood.
- Center Control: The Center control adjusts the volume
of the channel that handles almost all of the dialogue duties in order to
correct for differences in dialogue intelligibility from program to program.
Remote Control: The W Studio Micro includes an IR remote
control for wireless operation of the soundbar speaker system.
Mounting Options: The W Studio Micro soundbar speaker can
simply be placed on a flat surface in front of your TV or hung on the wall
thanks to its built-in keyhole slots (mounting screws not supplied).
Because the powered subwoofer is wireless, you can select practically any
location that best fits your lifestyle and décor. The subwoofer's compact
cabinet tucks out of the way nicely behind furniture.
Optional Wireless Rear Speakers: You can use a pair of the
W9 wireless speakers (both sold separately) as rear
surround speakers to create a more enveloping home theater system. Use the
Definitive Technology App (for

them with the W Studio Micro soundbar.
