Roku is integrating its soundbar and wireless speakers into a surround stereo

Roku is doing the apparent thing: it’s developing a surround sound system that brings together the company’s Smart Soundbar, subwoofer, and Roku TELEVISION Wireless speakers for a more immersive audio experience. A software update, due in February, will allow owners of the Roku-branded soundbar to add the wireless speakers– previously only compatible with Roku TVs– and subwoofer to the mix.
Another is that sound settings (voice improvement, volume leveling) are managed through Roku’s on-screen menus. Setting up Roku’s surround sound system takes simply a few minutes: you hold the home button on the remote down for a few seconds and then a menu pops up for matching whatever together.

See, the Smart Soundbar has Roku’s software application constructed in and doubles as a streaming device in its own. You’ll be dealing with 2 Roku remotes and two Roku interfaces. It’s not possible to match two sets of Roku TELEVISION speakers to form a surround setup: the soundbar is mandatory.

This option is plainly created for the lots of individuals who own TVs from other brand names like Samsung, Vizio, LG, Sony, and others. Roku thinks it can simplify house theater in a significant method for those customers. For non-surround audio, you can still choose to hear audio coming from all the speakers (with included ambiance) or just from the front speakers in regular stereo mode. In a brief demo back at CES, Roku’s system sounded rather great to me, but it undoubtedly doesn’t match the experience of Atmos. If you seek that level of enveloping audio, you might still be better off with a surround-system-in-a-box from the similarity Vizio.

That might make for a cheaper way into Roku’s surround sound system. Unusually, Roku isn’t (yet) using an affordable package of the $159 Smart Soundbar, $199 Roku TV Wireless speakers, and $159 subwoofer, but that may not be far off.
