Such a price for a soundbar: madness, do you think? However, when it is an eminent specialist like Sennheiser who makes this offer to you, it deserves your attention — because the Ambeo Soundbar Max is an exceptional product in more ways than one.
Our expectations were huge, and Sennheiser met them. Yes, the Ambeo Soundbar Max is the slap we were hoping for. Admittedly, its colossal size is matched only by its staggering price – to which you can still add a few hundred euros for a good subwoofer if you want to scrupulously respect the rules of the art. Nevertheless, at this price, there is simply no better solution for domestic 3D sound. A sovereign demonstration of know-how which ultimately has nothing so unreasonable about it.
- Impressive 3D spatialization: enveloping, precise and natural.
- Highly effective automatic acoustic calibration.
- Mind-boggling bass extension for a subwoofer-less bar (down to 30 Hz).
- Soft sound, but very detailed.
- Simple and intuitive handling.
- Rich connectivity (3 HDMI 2.0a inputs, eARC compatible HDMI output, etc.).
- Compatible with all major 3D sound formats (Dolby Atmos, DTS:X, MPEG-H).
- Distortion and slight overflows can sometimes be heard in the extreme bass — provide for the addition of a subwoofer to reach the top of the top sound.
- Heavy and imposing.
NB: The reported price drop is calculated by comparing the lowest price of the day with the average of the lowest prices charged by all merchants for the product last month, with security rules to exclude prices from shops whose the VAT policy is not clear (known as “grey” shops, typically in the case of imports from China).
More compact, more accessible, but no less capable than the Ambeo Soundbar Max, the Ambeo Soundbar Plus impresses with its ability to reproduce a particularly immersive soundstage that shines on cinematic content. The bar is not outdone either in terms of musical content, which it reproduces accurately, even at high volume levels. Add to that the multiple connection possibilities and extensive compatibility with almost all 3D audio formats, and you have one of the best soundbars on the market. A remarkable return from Sennheiser which consolidates its place as king.
