Soundcore by Anker has launched a Dolby Atmos soundbar in India, the ‘Infini Pro’. The soundbar comes with 18 Months warranty and is available on Flipkart. It is priced at Rs 15,999.
Coming to the specifications of the soundbar, it does not come with a subwoofer, something we saw with the Sony HT-X8500 Dolby Atmos Soundbar (review).
Coming to the specifications of the Infini Pro the soundbar has two 2.5-inch midrange drivers and 1-inch tweeters. It also has built-in up-facing 3-inch subwoofers. On either side of the soundbar, there are symmetrical bass reflex ports. Soundcore claims that “to add even more bass intensity, Infini Pro is integrated with exclusive BassUp technology: a customized digital signal processor that enhances bass output in real-time”. The soundbar has 120W output.
Coming to connectivity options, the soundbar features two HDMI ports – one is the ARC port to connect to your TV and the other is a 4K HDR enabled pass-through port. With the pass-through port, you can connect a device like the Fire TV Stick, Set-top-box or even a Blu-ray player directly to the soundbar.
Other connectivity options for the soundbar include AUX, Bluetooth 5 and Optical. The soundbar comes with three modes – Movie Mode, Music Mode, and Voice Mode. The soundbar comes with a remote control, but users can use the Soundcore App to control the soundbar.
When it comes to the design, the Infini Pro is “wrapped in a discreet black fabric to allow it to blend effortlessly with home interiors”. From its design, it does resemble the Yamaha YAS-109.
Another Dolby Atmos enabled soundbar at the 15k price segment is the Zebronics Zeb-Juke Bar 9700 Pro Dolby Atmos Soundbar. In our review of the Zebronics Zeb-Juke Bar 9700 Pro Dolby Atmos Soundbar we said that what the soundbar “has going for it is good connectivity options, a simple plug and play setup and support for Dolby Atmos decoding. While the Dolby Atmos performance is gimmicky, the bass-heavy nature of the soundbar makes it hard to recommend for all. If you don’t want the additional HDMI pass-through ports and are looking for a surround sound experience, you can check out the similarly priced Sony HT-S20R. It is a 5.1 soundbar with dedicated surround speakers and has better overall sound output”.
