System creation

State-of-the-art USB, HDMI (ARC), audio inputs, and the RS232 control interfaces ensure the soundbar can be leveraged in creating a true pro-AV system.

Voice enhancement

DSP processor with 3 built-in EQ presets (Music, Video Conference, Presentation), ensures everyone is clearly seen and heard in different application settings.

In terms of this soundbar and its characteristics, we are talking about a combination of audio quality, durability - which I see as a general sign of quality - simplicity and its physical dimensions.

FAQ

Q: Can I connect the Neets Sound Bar - SB2 to any TV?

A: Most TVs on the market now have an HDMI connector with either ARC (Audio Return Channel) or eARC (enhanced Audio Return Channel) which is backward compatible with ARC. The SB2 has an HDMI connector that supports ARC and hence works with most TVs.
NOTE: Beware that there might be small variations to how the TV manufacturers have implemented ARC, and hence we cannot guarantee compatibility with all TV models.

Q: Does the Neets Sound Bar - SB2 work with video conference systems?

A: Yes, the soundbar has a USB Audio input which will make it work as a USB speaker which most VC systems support. There are also Unbalanced (RCA) and Balanced inputs available as well.
If the requirement is an all-in-one VC system with a microphone, speaker and webcam have a look at the Collabo 2.0 by Neets for smaller meeting spaces that include the SB2 as well.

Q: How can the Neets Sound Bar - SB2 be controlled?

A: The soundbar can be controlled either via the TV remote if using HDMI-ARC, USB Audio, or via serial data (RS232) using a Neets control system or any other control system using our control protocol.

Q: Does the Neets Sound Bar - SB2 work without a Neets control system?

A: Yes, the soundbar has an 'Auto on/off' mode where it automatically powers on/off, depending on the presence of a signal on the inputs. The mode can be activated by a switch on the back of the device. See more here.

Q: How many EQ Presets are available and what is the difference?

A: There are 3 different presets available. We have created this article that describes which use cases the presets are optimized for.
