Definitive Technology W Studio

 

This soundbar and subwoofer combination from Definitive Technology looks stylish and sounds excellent.

Excellent sound across the board. HDMI switching. Play-Fi multi-room audio.

Very expensive. Useless on-screen menu system. Slight, quirky weakness with high vocals against electronic music.

The Definitive Technology W Studio is a generally fantastic-sounding soundbar. It looks gorgeous, is solidly built, and has several useful features. It's also $1,300, and that's a hard price to get over no matter how good the soundbar is. It also lacks...

Definitive Technology W Studio review

 

How much is too much to pay for a soundbar? "Anything over $500" seems like a fair answer for most buyers. But a few are willing to fork over much more for better audio quality without having to deal with multiple speakers.

The Definitive Technology W Studio sound bar offers superb sound in an elegant package. Its included 8-inch (20cm) subwoofer can really plumb the depths. It offers a rich mix of features including a full-size remote, HDMI switching Dolby and DTS...

It's expensive; it doesn't have Bluetooth; some surround processing can still be heard on Play-Fi music, even with the processing turned off; and the Play-Fi setup isn't clear either.

The excellent-sounding, elegant-looking Definitive Technology W Studio helps bring a touch of luxury to those willing to splash out on a high-end sound bar.

Remarkable Sound Bar

 

upfront cost of the Sound Bar balances out the need to get new speakers - I can use existing high end equipment in my home. Wi Fi provides much better sound and synchronization than does bluetooth.

Sound Quality and Sound Stage for movies and music

Costly but worth the money

Great sound, but.......

 

It does not have an easy way to adjust the sound. The choice is eithe movie or music. Changing the base is easy, but that is it using Harmony Elite remote control.

Not what I expected for the money

 

After hearing the unit in the store I couldn't wait to get it home..Set up went as planned but the sound fell short of expectations. It had a very tinny sound and a delay with the sub. At times the unit would go flat and loose all low end sound. Sad to...
