Soundbars can make it easier to set up a great home theater system, but they still don’t quite equate to the total immersion of a true surround sound system. To remedy, JBL showed a bar of 9.1 at last year’s CES with ends that could be snapped into two additional speakers to be placed around a room. This year Cowin goes even further by dividing the entire soundbar into two separate parts.
The Cowin soundbar is a 25W wireless unit that can be placed under the TV like a normal speaker, but also split into two Kit-Kat-like segments that can sit vertically on either side of your screen. . Or you can place the halves on a table or mount them horizontally on opposite walls – flexibility is key here, especially since it’s not tied to a CPU. It supports Bluetooth 4.2, but if you prefer a wired connection, it also has AUX, optical and HDMI ports.
