SRS Adds Speakers, Bows 6.1 Recoding

1/09/2002 05:12:00 PM Eastern

Las Vegas - SRS has launched its first home audio speakers and its first 6.1-channel decoding technology, which will appear for the first time in a Kenwood-branded receiver to be unveiled in February.

The decoding technology is called Circle Surround II, which decodes the Dolby Digital EX-encoded soundtracks on DVD-Video discs. It also upconverts mono, stereo and Dolby Pro Logic soundtracks to 6.1 channels, and it incorporates techniques to improve dialog clarity and enhance bass response, the latter by constructing bass fundamental frequencies from detected bass harmonics. The SRS-branded speakers are flat planar models complemented by a powered cone subwoofer.
