Introducing the first sound bar to the Nuvo Player Portfolio Line
Legrand, the global specialist in electrical and digital building infrastructures, has announced the launch of the Nuvo P500 - the first sound bar and subwoofer combo, to its Player Portfolio range, enhancing audio for TV and doubling as a Wi-Fi Music Player for streaming services and stored files.
The powerful Nuvo P500 2.1 audio system, features an eight-inch wireless subwoofer, offering excellent sound quality across a range of music streaming services such as Spotify, TuneIn, Napster, Deezer and SiriusXM, as well as dynamic audio with a deep bass response for TV and movie viewing. In fact, the listening experiences are customisable with four audio modes; movie, music, voice and night.
The sound bar also offers a number of flexible control options including its own remote control, the Nuvo Player app and optional in-wall keypads. Furthermore, thanks to a built-in IR learning function, remote controls sold with TVs and set top boxes can also be used to control the sound bar. There is also the possibility for integrated control via Legrand’s Vantage and MyHome systems as well as those from its industry partners – KNX, Control4, Crestron, RTI and URC.
The P500 can be installed in either an Ethernet or wireless (802.11 a.b.g.n. 2.4GHz or 5.1GHz) configuration and additional components can be connected to it via TOSLINK and analogue line inputs.
Richard Hayward, Lead Marketing Manager for Legrand’s Wiring Devices business said: “The two-piece P500 system provides enhanced audio for TV while serving as a Nuvo Player for music and audio content from streaming services, home networks, or iOS and Android portable devices. Not every room in a home will have a TV with surround sound, but it can still have great audio. With the Player Portfolio built-in, the P500 works seamlessly as part of the whole house system – with the ability to play audio throughout the home or in isolation, depending on need.”
Featuring a sleek and industrial design, the P500 sports a metal grill, white backlit touch panel and a neatly hidden internal power supply, making it ideal for installation below flat panel TVs.
