Dolby Atmos FlexConnect technology, currently exclusive to TCL, enables you to wirelessly connect one or two compatible speakers to easily distribute immersive 3D sound throughout your living room, with no restrictions regarding speaker placement.

During IFA 2023, the manufacturer presented a pair of prototype 180-watt wireless Atmos speakers (Tutti Choral Speakers), each with 3 surround drivers and 2 Atmos drivers. The demonstration was very convincing, with true 3D sound immersion, whatever the position of the speakers in relation to the TV and the viewers.

Acheteur-vendeur de produits high-tech d'occasion pendant une dizaine d'années avant de rejoindre Son-Vidéo.com en 2007, j'ai eu l'opportunité de tester nombre d'amplis, enceintes, casques, TV, vidéoprojecteurs et autres baladeurs... Passionné de films et de séries, de musique et de nouvelles technologies, j'affectionne particulièrement les univers de la TV, de la vidéoprojection et du home-cinéma. J'aime regarder des films en famille sur très grand écran, au cinéma ou à la maison, mais j'apprécie aussi d'écouter de la musique sur un bon système hi-fi, bien calé dans un fauteuil, ou en balade avec un casque sur les oreilles.
