CES 22 > Hisense U5120GW, 5.1.2 Dolby Atmos and DTS:X soundbar

Hisense caused a sensation at the CES show in Las Vegas 2022 in early January with the presentation of many new products: Hisense LX8 8K Laser TV, Hisense 77R1 rollable Laser TV, Hisense L9G Laser TV and Hisense PX1-Pro TriChroma Laser TV, or the Hisense 65A9H 4K UHD and Hisenses U8HQ, not to mention the Hisense 85U9H 8K UHD TV. All that remained was to discover the Hisense U5120GW soundbar, a 5.1.2 Dolby Atmos and DTS:X model.

And if, at the time of writing these lines, we still know few details on the specifications of the Hisense U5120GW soundbar, we can already say that it will come to cap the range of the brand currently dominated by the Hisense HS512.

Hisense U5120GW, main developments compared to the Hisense HS512

To the Hisense HS512, the Hisense U5120GW adds Wi-Fi, Chromecast (integrated) and AirPlay compatibility, Hi-Res Audio certification and management of the main voice assistants. The power delivered displays 480 watts. Namely, there is a version U5120GW+, model 7.1.2 equipped with a pair of wireless surround for a total power of 570 W, but it is not known if this one will be distributed in France.

Dolby Atmos 5.1.2 and DTS:X compatibility

Dolby Atmos/DTS:X compatibility is included, with side speakers and two Up-Firing configuration, that is to say directed upwards for the reproduction of the Height channels.

11 HP and Bluetooth function

The acoustic package therefore still has, like the HS512, eleven loudspeakers plus an external subwoofer. Similarly, Hisense announces that the U5120GW offers Bluetooth compatibility and the eARC function via HDMI, without further details.

Availability announced for the month of April. Indicative price: 599 euros.
