The CES 2017 is set to take place in Las Vegas between January 5 to January 8. While Samsung has confirmed its presence at the event, it hasn t mentioned anything about the dates, yet. Though, Samsung did confirm that it will be showcasing a H7 wireless speaker, a soundbar and 4K Blu-ray player. Delivering clear, crisp, immersive sound is very important to Samsung, and we always strive to create new products that further complement the user experience.

The new lineup of audio products revolves around sleek and simple design with enhanced integration across multiple devices, Samsung says. The entire product lineup will include Samsung s proprietary Ultra High Quality audio technology, which can offer 32bits of rich and detailed audio from any source that offers 8 to 24bit sound. To put it in simple words, the technology is capable of upscaling audio 32bit output for both wired and wireless connections. The company also mentioned that the proprietary audio technology can offer listening experience closer to original recording compared to the existing HD audio.

Samsung has developed its own audio algorithms by applying Distortion Cancelling technology to reduce sound alterations. It does this by predicting the movement of internal speaker units, and controlling them to deliver the perfect sound. There is also a new audio profile called Wide-band Tweeter that can expand and broadens the sweet spot in any room. The profile also includes Crystal Amplifier to remove noise to allow customers enjoy accurate and precise sound.

Samsung H7 wireless speaker
Samsung is promising to deliver “stunning” audio quality packed in a premium design – a sleek, compact speaker, retro exterior and contemporary metal finish. Together with a wheel control for intuitive user experience, one can not only adjust the volume, but also select the playlist from supported music streaming service. The H7 wireless speaker with 32bit ultra high-quality audio technology can offer bass response of 35Hz.
Samsung MS750 Soundbar
It is Samsung s first soundbar to come embedded with a subwoofer in the main unit and support for ultra high-quality 32bit audio. Samsung says, it is capable of delivering powerful home cinema audio without needing a separate subwoofer. The soundbar features vertical tweeters and up-firing capabilities along with upmixing technology to deliver deeper sense of immersion. The power, volume and other buttons are placed on the right edge of the panel.
When paired with Samsung s Smart Remote Control, the home audio of the room is powered by the same device as the television unit. This eliminates the need of having two separate power cables, while also making the setup clutter free. What s more, the one body design allows you to mount the soundbar onto your TV with a simple connection, thus saving space and avoiding complicated setup.
Samsung UHD M9500 Blu-ray player
Lastly, Samsung will also be unveiling the M9500 UHD Blu-ray player. It includes support for Samsung Smart Remote integration and Bluetooth Wireless Streaming Support. The HDR-optimized player also offers a new Private Cinema Mode. It essentially transfers the audio output of the TV to your personal Bluetooth headphones. Also, based on the content source being played – such as Atmos, HDR or DTS-X, the Blu-ray player automatically sets the TV audio to an optimal level.
Besides these, Samsung will also showcase C-Lab projects at CES 2017, S-Skin, a skincare solution, Tag+, an electronic device that adds extra functionality to kids’ toys; and Lumini, a portable device for identifying and preventing skin problems.
