The sound should be balanced and exciting without stripping the enamel from your teeth. And importantly, if you want to play some music through your home cinema system then that too should be enjoyable.
A hi-fi brand that brings you cinema. Yes it has the technically sophisticated DIRAC room correction and the extraordinary DOLBY ATMOS but don’t let that distract you from its ability to deliver an audio and visual experience you will love.
