Roku Unveils Wireless Stereo Speakers for Roku TVs

Roku wireless speakers

While the Roku TV Wireless Speakers seem like a fine enough product, I do have an issue with them. All setup and features are controlled through the Roku TV interface. "Some of the most popular channels on the Roku platform are streaming music channels, and with Roku Touch it is even easier to use Roku TV and Roku TV Wireless Speakers to listen to music". Available for preorder at $149 beginning today through July 23, $179 starting July 24 through October 15, and $199 thereafter, the Roku TV Wireless Speakers - quite the literal name - are created to provide improved audio quality for today's super-slim TVs. Roku said users will also be able to use the speakers to listen to music from iTunes or Spotify, with the idea being that Roku wants you to be able to replace your entire audio setup. The speaker set pairs wirelessly with Roku TVs via Roku Connect, and, thanks to built-in software that works with Roku OS, the speakers will sync up with whatever you're watching on the smart TV. Roku says that the Roku TV Wireless Speakers are tall to allow the company to pack a large subwoofer and tweeter into each device. The speakers also offer Automatic Volume Leveling to lower the volume on loud scenes and boost the volume on quieter ones and Dialog Enhancement to improve the intelligibility of speech. The Touch remote is most like the voice remote, but it can be used nearly anywhere in your home because it's wireless and runs on batteries. Again: Roku's goal is to provide tools to encourage customers to stream more video and audio than they do today. And if you've got a standard TV, you're in the same boat. "Adding great audio dramatically enhances the way people experience their favorite entertainment". There are numerous audio solutions available for regular and smart TVs, but wading through the vast ocean of options can be tricky.

The speakers are scheduled to start shipping in late October.

The wireless speaker bundle includes a new Roku TV Voice Remote, which controls both the Roku TV and the speakers via Wi-Fi.

The Roku speakers are about the size of an Apple HomePod. We haven't had the chance to hear Roku's new speakers in action, so we can not comment on quality yet, but the proper balance of audio quality and price will be key to the success of Roku's Wireless Speakers. The deal should go live on Roku's site soon. They ship with a Roku TV Voice Remote, which controls both the Roku TV and the speakers, as well as the all-new Roku Touch. And the different layers - a helicopter's blades, the sound of metal on metal, an explosion - were distinguishable from one another, as opposed to the cocktail of sounds you usually get from the special effects of today's action scenes.

The other remote is the Roku Touch controller, a new puck-shaped remote designed for tabletop use. As of October 16, they'll cost $199.99. When the new devices finally come out, the bundle price will be $199.
