Next Level Acoustics Releases Adapter Bracket for UM-1 Sonos Soundbar Mount

Next Level Acoustics has released its UM1-A adapter bracket, which is designed to mount a Sonos Arc soundbar directly to your display when paired with the company’s UM-1 bracket. The UM1-A is outfitted with tilt adjustment, which allows the soundbar’s Atmos drivers to remain unobstructed even when the display is tilted downward. The adapter bracket also supports both 300mm to 600mm VESA mounting patterns.

Next Level Acoustics, known for audiophile quality American-made custom-install speakers, Fusion soundbars and Elite Series enclosures, is now shipping their UM1-A adapter bracket for the SONOS ARC.

The UM1-A adapter attaches to our existing UM-1 bracket allowing for direct Height, Forward/Depth, and Tilt adjustment to the SONOS ARC itself ensuring that the Atmos drivers remain unobstructed.  Made of high-grade 11-gauge steel construction, this bracket attaches to the SONOS ARC using 18mm M5 bolts and applicable washers for a secure installation.

Features include:

    •  Pairs with the UM-1 bracket allowing you to mount the SONOS ARC directly to the display
    • Supports 300mm – 600mm VESA patterns
    • Provides full Height, Forward/Depth, and Tilt adjustment
    • Allows the Sonos ARC to mount to the bottom of the display while using the forward/depth adjustment to ensure that the ATMOS drivers/microphones remain unobstructed
    • Recommend mounting the SONOS ARC so that the grille on the top of the ARC clears the front edge of the display
    • Tilt Mount added feature – Normally when you tilt the display any directly mounted soundbar would also tilt at that same angle.  Because the UM1 has tilt adjustment, even though the display is tilted downwards the UM-1 allows the installer to level the Sonos ARC so that the Atmos drivers fire up at a 20-degree angle from a level plane

Next Level Acoustics Ships Custom Soundbars for Samsung’s Frame TV

Next Level Acoustics Achieve Breakthrough Aesthetic Design and Sound Quality in a TV Soundbar

Needham, MA – November 21, 2019 – Next Level Acoustics, known for audiophile quality American-made custom-install speakers, soundbars and enclosures, is now shipping their breakthrough new soundbar line called “Fusion Frame”.

“Insights into unmet needs for sound quality and aesthetics in the soundbar market led us to a new creative solution – the Fusion Frame soundbar designed expressly as a perfect match for the highly-successful Frame TV™ from market share leader Samsung ® ,” said Rob Goldman Founder and COO of Next Level Acoustics.

Frame TV was created in 2017 when Samsung and Fuseproject™, a design agency led by award-winning Swiss designer Yves Béhar partnered to create a better way to integrate TV in the home. They noted the consumer’s biggest objection is that when a TV is turned off it’s an obtrusive “black hole”. Thus, custom installers are frequently asked to hide TV’s with expensive cabinets or otherwise make the TV disappear.

FUSION FRAME side-fin

Frame TV however, appears as indistinguishable from a painting hanging on a wall. This illusion is created with a TV cabinet that’s only 1.75-inches deep resembling a picture frame mounted flush to the wall with no gap. When turned off there’s no “black hole” since the TV automatically displays expertly curated high-resolution art as static or changing images. It’s a TV when on and art when turned off.

Like all modern TV’s a minimal cabinet design limits TV sound quality, so many consumers opt for a sound bar. However, ordinary soundbars ruin the carefully created illusion and aesthetics of Frame TV.

FUSION FRAME WHITE

So Next Level Acoustics created Fusion Frame, an innovative line of soundbars with the same high-fidelity as their other soundbars in a design that with its picture frame bezel, 1.75-inch depth and no-gap mounting, perfectly matches Frame TV. Fusion Frame delivers superb audio performance with wide frequency range, full dynamics, voice intelligibility, and detail of a high-quality speaker system suitable for movies and music. When Frame TV is off and displaying art, owners can sync their favorite music to the Fusion Frame soundbar so the art is accompanied by beautiful music for a true lifestyle enhancement to any room.

FUSION FRAME DOME DRIVERS

“A typical cone woofer can’t perform as needed with the shallow cabinet so we engineered and built our own 4.5-inch aluminum dome drivers. The drivers have stiff, non-resonant cast baskets mated to powerful rare-earth Neodymium magnets. A high flux 2-layer voice coil drives the ultra-stiff aluminum dome suspended by a butyl rubber surround for very high acceleration and excursion. The result is clear, dynamic bass and smooth detailed mid-range, much more than one would imagine possible from such a thin soundbar”, said John Sollecito who in addition serving as Next Level Acoustics head of Engineering and Manufacturing is also President of JS Speaker Technologies, known for the legendary audiophile JSE Infinite Slope™ loudspeaker.

Fusion Frame’s high-frequencies are handled by a 1-inch soft dome tweeter from audiophile Danish driver manufacturer Vifa along with a proprietary crossover that uses high-grade precision components. A custom ultra-rigid high-density sealed enclosure comprised of CNC-machined MDF and lined with an anti-resonant coating makes a vibration-free cabinet.

The back of the enclosure has installer-friendly features such as recessed terminal cups with gold-plated heavy-duty binding-post/banana-jacks and recessed cable management channels for a no-gap mount. Wall mounting is incredibly simple by removing the magnetically attached grille accessing the cabinet installation holes to directly attach the bar with the included screws into wall studs or mounting to a wall with the included anchors.

Fusion Frame soundbars can be easily driven by amplifiers from 30 watts or up to 150 watts. To match the four sizes of Samsung Frame TV’s there are six Fusion Frame models available. Four are stereo soundbars and two LCR models are available for the larger 55 and 65-inch sizes. All use the same drivers with the same great sound regardless of size.

The Fusion Frame soundbars feature a black Plex finish to match the standard Samsung Frame TV bezel with a black acoustically transparent fabric grille that’s magnetically attached. An optional white lacquer maple veneer finish is available to match white Frame TV’s. If installers and clients decide to go with one of the two remaining Samsung frame color options, the Fusion Frame can be custom painted to match. All Next Level Acoustics Fusion Frame soundbars are backed with a full 5-year warranty.

A generic version of the soundbar for non-Frame TV applications of any size, called Fusion Flat series is also available.

For extended bass performance, Next Level Acoustics makes an excellent in-wall subwoofer to match the Fusion Frame soundbars, model CI-IW10S, a compact sub with a long-throw 10-inch cast frame driver that’s designed to fit in 2×4 construction and extend bass response down to 34 Hz driven with as little as 40 watts of power.

Next Level Acoustics Creates Soundbar for Samsung’s Frame TV

Next Level Acoustics is now shipping a new soundbar line called “Fusion Frame” designed to match Samsung’s popular Frame TT from market share leader Samsung. Featuring Samsung’s 4K UHD QLED technology, Frame TV is now in its third year, with four new models in sizes from 43, 49, 55, and 65 inches diagonal and customizable bezel colors.

“Insights into unmet needs for sound quality and aesthetics in the soundbar market led us to a new creative solution – the Fusion Frame soundbar designed expressly as a perfect match for the highly-successful Frame TV from market share leader Samsun®,” said Rob Goldman, founder and COO of Next Level Acoustics.
