You don’t do heavy metal in Dubly
Swiss startup Sonic Emotion was demonstrating products utilising its 3D sound chip at CES 2010, as it prepares itself to take on the likes of Bose and Dolby in the audio technology market.
The chip uses a technology called Wave Field Synthesis, which Sonic Emotion claims offers a full, 3D surround sound type of experience through stereo speakers that surpasses even a 5.1 speaker experience.
We had a listen to the Coby Sound Bar below and have to concede that there were some impressive directional sound effects, considering they came from a single, stereo unit, with Pink Floyd's Money coming over especially well.
Coby is a market leading white label audio OEM in the US and will be launching the Sound Bar soon. Additionally, Sonic Emotion also works with Scott in Europe, with devices already available.
