Soundbar  Mounts  Dolby Atmos 

[#pageName]

AV mounting specialist Sanus has announced a universal extendable mount to maximise the performance of Dolby Atmos soundbars.

The WSBWM1 is designed to be screwed to the wall beneath the TV and can be mounted on dry-wall, stud-work or solid walls using the included fittings. Its soundbar attachment options include the ability to fix to soundbars with rear threaded screw holes, key hole slots or underside screw holes, effectively making it a truly universal fit.

Once attached to the wall, the soundbar appears to float under the TV. Helpfully, the design of the mount also enables post-installation height and level adjustments to be made to fine tune the positioning. The mount cans hold soundbars up to 9kg.

The extendable nature of the mount permits an amount of left/right swivel and, most importantly for Dolby Atmos enabled soundbars, it allows the speaker to be pulled forward of the TV, enabling height channel drivers to project sound to the ceiling, thereby creating an authentic immersive audio experience.

Sanus suggests installation should take integrators around 15 minutes, if they follow the simple three-step process. Once mounted on the wall there is easy access to power and cable management, to enable the home entertainment system to be up and running quickly.

“Dolby Atmos is a fantastic way of enhancing the movie experience, but one which is often hampered by the physical positioning of the soundbar under the TV,” says Dean Carroll, Sanus international sales director - consumer. “This newly designed mount overcomes this issue by enabling the soundbar to be pulled forward of the front lip of the screen, therefore allowing the up-firing speakers to perform as designed and unhindered.”

The WSBWM1 sells for £59.99 (€69.99).
