TCL Ships 2023 Q & S Class Sound Bar Lineup
Complementing its 2023 Q and S Class TVs, TCL announced the availability of its similarly named new sound bar classes, each of which is said to deliver new levels of dynamic audio for immersive home theater experiences.
TCL is adding two new Q Class and three new S Class models, each of which will match up against one of its Q or S Class TVs.
The line supports Roku TV Ready pairing, and all models come with a separate wireless subwoofer and support for HDMI Audio Return Channel (ARC) to present expansive surround sound from compatible smart TVs, like TCL’s new Q & S Class Google TV models.
TCL Q Series Sound Bars
All of the company’s 2023 Q series sound bars come with wireless subwoofers. The step-up 3.1-channel models feature separate center channel drivers for upfront vocal clarity, while the top-of-the-line 5.1 model includes both center channel and wired surround sound rear-channel speakers.
All Q Class models have price points of under $300, providing high value for performance, and each supports both HDMI ARC and eARC.
The new Q Class sound bars include the following:
