Sound is as much it’s surrounding as it is the output, that’s why Sonos have added a brilliant new feature that optimises your sound for it’s environment.
Sonos have updated their speakers with ‘Trueplay’ so that they can detect your surroundings and optimise their sound based on the room. Sonos added Trueplay in their 7.0 update to all of their speakers to “make sure you’re enjoying the best sound possible, no matter where you’ve placed your speaker”.
Using an iPhone, iPad or iPad Touch and the Sonos app, Trueplay uses your device’s microphone analyses the size of your room, layout, décor, speaker placement, and any other acoustic factors that can impact sound quality. Once it’s analysed it’s surroundings the speaker intelligently tunes it’s timing, EQ and loudness with precise adjustments for each woofer and tweeter.
You can also use Trueplay to tune your setup and transform it into a home cinema, as Sonos say: “Trueplay balances and fine-tunes any Sonos home cinema setup – from a PLAYBAR, with or without SUB, to full surround sound with Sonos rear channels. Set up your home cinema system however you want, in any room, and it will sound amazing.”
Trueplay is available in update 7.0 for PLAY:1, PLAY:3, PLAY:5, and PLAYBAR and Sonos say: “The result? Every note you hear feels more immersive, more intense, and more real.”
