  • In 2015, I got an early look at the first Dolby Atmos soundbar ever created, Yamaha’s YSP-5600. Devised as a singular solution to all your Atmos and DTS:X needs, the 5600 foregoes discrete surround speakers for gobs of “beam drivers” that bounce audio off your walls to immerse you in 3D sound. With similar aspirations — and a ton of homegrown innovations — Sennheiser’s first soundbar, the Ambeo, takes that idea to a whole new level.

    Packing glorious detail, rich and lyrical performance for both music and film, and shockingly realistic Dolby Atmos virtualization, Sennheiser’s $2,500 Ambeo soundbar isn’t some vanity system for the wealthy. It’s designed as a holistic sound solution to please audiophiles, cinephiles, and everyone in between. And on almost all accounts, it does just that.

    Unfortunately, as with a lot of new tech, there are some nagging issues inherent in Sennheiser’s first shot out of the gate — namely some latency problems for sound sourced directly from a TV — that (sadly) keep me shy of clicking my heels together and stamping the Ambeo as the soundbar of the year. Ambeo is perhaps the best sounding bar for all formats I’ve heard. But whether or not you should throw down the big money depends heavily on how you’ll use it.
