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
“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:

features uniquely angled speakers that beam sound waves towards reflector units
to create an incredibly immersive, ultra-wide soundstage.
