The compact Sky Soundbox speaker will offer immersive sound that Sky claims can “surpasses many of the best home cinema systems available today”.
Sky Soundbox is designed to offer spatial surround-sound and bass depth, using the walls in the home to reflect ambient sound.
Devialet developed its audio technology for its Expert Pro amplifier and Phantom wireless speaker and the Sky deal marks its first partnership with another brand.
“Sound is a vital part of visual storytelling – whether you’re watching the season finale of your favourite drama, or an epic Premier League clash,” said
Stephen van Rooyen, chief executive officer, Sky UK and Ireland.
“Great TV deserves great audio – we believe Sky Soundbox is the Ultra HD of home audio.”
Devialet CEO, Quentin Sannié said: “Sound is the future of television. We are very proud to be partnering with Sky, to help them to unleash the full emotional impact of their content, through powerful, immersive, fully integrated sound.”
