Vizio’s Elevate soundbar has finally hit shelves. You can buy it today. The 48-inch soundbar supports Dolby Atmos and DTS:X. The soundbar houses 18 speakers and comes with a wireless eight-inch subwoofer. The cool thing is that some of the speakers rotate.
Vizio packed 18 speakers into the 5.1.4-channel system, which includes a wireless eight-inch subwoofer you can place elsewhere in your room, along with a pair of satellite surround speakers. Elevate offers the same features as the rest of Vizio’s new soundbars, such as Chromecast and Bluetooth support, voice assistant input and two HDMI ports. The soundbar will work with any TV, though Vizio says it docks seamlessly with its latest 55-inch and 65-inch OLED TVs.
At $1,000, the Elevate system isn’t exactly on the budget end of soundbar options, and we’re seeing more and more models that support Dolby Atmos audio. However, the rotating speaker system is certainly intriguing, and it might be worth a look if you’re considering a home theater upgrade.
