TCL Announces 2020 Sound Bar Lineup

TCL announced today five new products in its TCL Alto Sound Bar lineup. The new products include the TCL Alto 9+ which was first shown at CES back in January, along with the Alto 8i, Alto 6/6+, and the Alto 3.

“TCL is excited to build on the first-generation of Alto products by leveraging its strong capabilities in audio and vertical integration to deliver superior sound that exceeds standards in the market. The brand has always been dedicated to improving people’s lives with joy and simplicity and that formula has built a strong foundation for our TV business. We aim to carry that same success over to the audio side with a seamless user experience and incredible value,” said Chris Larson, Senior Vice President, TCL.

Each of the Alto models have three different listening modes – Movie, Music, and TV. The Movie mode allows viewers to hear the dialogue with precise clarity and feel the impact of punches or explosions in intense action scenes. Music mode enables the sound of instruments, vocals, and bass to come through with pristine accuracy. And TV mode isolates ambient sound from speech, so the focus remains on the content without distractions from background noise.

Here are the details about each of the new products:

TCL Alto 9+ Sound Bar

This is the first sound bar with TCL’s RAY-DANZ technology, which features uniquely angled speakers that beam sound waves towards reflector units to create an incredibly immersive, ultra-wide soundstage.

This model is ideal for 55” TVs and larger and is now available for $299.

TCL Alto 6 and 6+ Sound Bar

These affordable options bring bigger, bolder sound to your room. TCL’s Alto 6+ adds pounding bass from the powerful downward-firing wireless subwoofer and maximum clarity with Dolby Digital decoding.

This model is ideal for 40” TVs and larger. The Alto 6 will be available for $79 and TCL Alto 6+ with subwoofer will be available for $129, both at the end of the month.
