Televisions are getting bigger and thinner every day and, as they do so, more of them are being hung on the wall — making the placement of traditional television soundbars a trickier and trickier challenge.
Now Niles®, the first name in custom installation audio, is meeting this challenge with the introduction of its theater-grade Cynema Soundfield, the world’s first in-wall soundbar that makes home entertainment audio a completely invisible experience.
The design of the Dolby®-certified Niles Cynema Soundfield is truly ingenious. Put simply, it is a thin metal bracket that goes into the wall and can hold the three 100- Watt dual-speaker modules and a powerful Niles amplifier.
By tapping into the empty space behind the drywall, the Niles Cynema Soundfield delivers some serious sound quality and amplification, something that other soundbar manufacturers struggle to do with on-wall or tabletop models. Nobody wants a soundbar that sticks out farther than their TV — and now they don’t have to even consider it.
Finally, TV lovers and film buffs can enjoy theater quality audio without sacrificing the room’s aesthetic. With 48-inch, 55-inch and 60-inch models, there is a virtually invisible soundbar to match any wall-mounted TV. Since this soundbar requires cutting into the drywall, it is recommended to have a professional install the Cynema Soundfield, and the same goes for mounting a large TV. And no home theater is truly complete without a subwoofer to deliver ground-shaking bass, so Niles has also introduced a wireless kit that makes it easy to connect their SW series of compact subwoofers.
What’s more, if the Cynema Soundfield is connected to a multiroom audio system, it can play music when the TV is off. It’s also a perfect addition for game rooms or dens where kids are around, because it can’t be knocked over and it has a special mode that limits the volume. Clearly, the engineers at Niles have thought of just about everything and have crafted an amazingly unique soundbar.
The retail pricing is as follows: $1,599 for the 48-inch model, $1,749 for the 55-inch model, and $1,999 for the 60-inch model. The 48-inch model is also available without an amplifier for $1,195, which allows homeowners and installers to use separate amplification.
