Toshiba Ultrabook gets Harman Kardon speakers
What’s in a name, really? For some of us, a name would convey the sense of quality, especially so when that particular name has been a trusted one for a long, long time. I guess this is why branding is extremely important, and here we are with two well known companies synergizing to deliver the best (in their opinion, anyways, we just report it) to consumers. I am referring to Harman Kardon speakers that deliver exceptional audio as well as muscular bass to the Toshiba Widescreen Ultrabook, starting with Satellite U845W model in tow.
Basically, if you are in the market for a Windows 8 powered workhorse multimedia laptop that delivers exceptional sound, your ears will definitely tingle (if it works as claimed) as it tunes in to the remarkably thin Toshiba Satellite U845W Ultrabook which is said to pack far more bite than what it looks like at first glance. Sporting a couple of Harman Kardon speakers alongside Odyssey3 drivers, the Satellite U845W is said to offer crisp, robust sound with authoritative bass which is louder compared to other comparably sized laptop or notebook that is in the market at the moment.
Sachin Lawande, executive vice president of HARMAN and co-president of HARMAN Lifestyle and Infotainment, said, “This is the first Ultrabook that doesn’t require the user to attach external speakers to enjoy a movie, MP3 or streaming audio. The Harman Kardon speakers were custom-designed for the Satellite Ultrabook to get the most out of digital music files. The Satellite Ultrabook was built for beautiful sound.”
The Satellite U845W is not the only one from Toshiba to include Harman Kardon speakers, but it will mark a new era, being the first of nine models to do so. It would be interesting to see how the market reacts to such a model (and other models in the pipeline), and whether audio quality is that big of a deal breaker for many. Expect to pick up the Toshiba Satellite U845W with Harman Kardon sound from $929.99 upwards, depending on the configuration you selected.
