”Sennheiser's enormous Ambeo soundbar justifies its huge price tag.” ’What Hi-Fi?’ 2022 award-winner.

Immersive 5.1.4 sound

Packed into its stylish case are no fewer than 13 independent drivers. Five tweeters, six woofers and two top firing speakers are controlled by a sophisticated processor, to deliver room-filling sound. AMBEO technology delivers three further equaliser modes, letting you experiment with the type of soundfield.

Tuned to your room
The supplied calibration microphone means you get exactly the right acoustic response for your room. Plug the mic in and at the press of a button it measures your room’s acoustics and adjusts the output to suit, giving you the best sound possible in any space.

Dolby Atmos and DTS:X compatible
Up-firing speakers make this Sennheiser soundbar compatible with Dolby Atmos and DTS:X. Dolby Atmos and DTS:X are more usually found in high-end cinemas and deliver immersive sound through height speakers in the ceiling. Rather than having to drill holes in your ceiling at home, the AMBEO’s up-firing speakers produce the same type of 3D sound, with effects appearing to come from above. Listen to a helicopter or aircraft or a thunderstorm and you’ll swear the sound is coming from above your head!

Powerful bass
For the full impact of action movies, powerful bass is a must. The AMBEO delivers with its built-in subwoofer array. Reaching right down to 30Hz, the AMBEO reproduces impressive levels of depth, without the need for a separate subwoofer. If you’ve got a larger room or simply want to truly feel the bass, then simply connect your choice of separate active subwoofer via the sub output.

Google Chromecast, UPnP and Bluetooth for streaming entertainment
With Chromecast built-in and support for UPnP (Universal Plug n’ Play), the AMBEO is ready to stream your music library, music streaming services and podcasts. Connect via wi-fi or Ethernet cable and make the AMBEO the hub of your wireless music streaming. Alternatively, the AMBEO is also compatible with Bluetooth. This high quality v4.2 system is perfect for quick pairing with your smartphone or tablet and, thanks to NFC, all it takes to get going is a quick tap.

Fully connected to be the hub of your system
Three HDMI inputs and one output make this soundbar ideal for connecting all your home entertainment sources. Plug in your games console, TV set-top box and Blu-ray/DVD player and hear them all sounding their very best through the soundbar. The HDMI output uses eARC for enhanced features from this audio return channel connection. For none-HDMI sources, there’s optical and RCA analogue inputs on hand.

Seamless control via app
Download the Smart Control App (Available for Apple iOS and Android) and you can tailor the soundbar from the comfort of your chair. Adjust a multitude of acoustic settings for the perfect sound. Alternatively, the AMBEO is also supplied with a handy IR remote control.

Free the true potential of your home cinema sound, with the immersive Sennheiser AMBEO soundbar.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Service and assistance I wanted a new sound bar. The assistance and service that Ahmed provided was first class and appreciated. I have no hesitation in recommending Richer Sounds who I have used for many years.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome experience I am glad I bought this sound bar, Did it via tele sales, person called Dave, he helped me with the choices and informed the pros and cons, which helped me in buying decision. Very helpful telesales staff. Bar is incredible with atmos and music. In future ill buy a subwoofer to go on with my bar . Thank you richer sound!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Hassle free, amazing sound. I purchased this item a few months ago and would highly recommend. For context, I moved home and didn't want to house an av receiver/ speakers etc. The initial set up in the app was clunky, had to use an ethernet cable and reboot device and the app multiple times, took 2 hours, the actual process is 5mins. Once it was done it functions fine. The sound is awesome, I demoed several soundbars, and was reluctant to change from my av receiver, this was the only one that I could justify. The guys at RS Manchester were great, set it up and accomodated a number of scenarios (atmos demo disk, blu ray scenes, music, sub vs no sub). The virtual speaker effects are not quite equivalent to physical speakers, and when using isolation test tones etc it cant hide this, but the reality of a 1 box solution is definitely worth the trade off. The surround and atmos effects are good enough, and often surprises how good they are. The absence of a separate sub is not an immediate problem, any other soundbar I have heard cannot compete. My personal preference is to have a sub, but could argue one isnt needed. Music sounds great. One of the massive benifits is it just works, and the family can use easily, when compared to the av receiver setup constant faff.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amasing sound, breathtaking Just bought a TV and the Sennheiser AMBEO Max - what a sound and the performance is amazing. I am blown away, the service from start to finish of Richer sounds is fantastic and I can't recommend them enough!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sound bar Used these guys to purchase my sennheiser Ambeo Soundbar. It was a very painless experience and the guy on the phone was super helpful and accommodating to my needs. Agreed a delivery date and was received as planned. 10/10!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic but it depends on your priorities Postives: Very dynamic and detailed with clear vocals. The Dolby Atmos effects gives the Ambeo a big front soundstage, nice Atmos effects you'd swear there was another set of speakers 4 foot either side of the tv. Also on Netflix even basic non Atmos films are upmixed to sound really good too. Negatives: There's no true Atmos effects, nothing from the rear or above, however this is a sound bar so it can't compete with AVR + multi speakers at the same price. In my view it's halfway towards a HT system. Also when switching between apps within the TV sometimes there's no sound...a re-boot of the Ambeo solves it. Conclusion: It depends on your domestic situation. If your room is smallish (like most in the UK) and you want a wife friendly simple solution in a sound bar then this is the best available and highly recommended. However if you want the best sound and don't mind multiple speakers with long cables in your room then an AVR with multiple speakers sound better and offer better value.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Expensive but well worth it I wasn't prepared for what this soundbar does. This has to be the Rolls Royce as the performance is mind blowing. Very expensive but well worth the price.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best single unit surround sound system. Calling the Sennheiser Ambeo a soundbar is a bit like calling a Formula one Mercedes Benz a motorcar. Like an ordinary car a Formula one Mercedes Benz has four wheels and an engine, and like an ordinary soundbar a Sennheiser Ambeo is a single unit that fits under your Television. However a formula one Mercedes Benz is not so much day-to-day transport, more a race winning machine, and the Sennheiser Ambeo is not so much a soundbar more a single unit home cinema sound system. As a single unit home cinema sound system it compared very favourably to my own home cinema sound setup which consists of the Marantz SR7015 Av amplifier, Tannoy Precision 6C centre speaker, With Tannoy 6.1 left and right front speakers, Monitor Audio fx surround speakers, and twin Ceiling height, wall mounted Tannoy sfx speakers used as Dolby Atmos height speakers. In my relatively small room with 10’ ceiling and mainly bare walls, the Ambeo is almost optimally placed being just under 1metre from the left-hand side wall and just over 1metre from the right-hand side wall. After calibration the Ambeo displayed a neutral sonic balance, an open and spacious soundstage, with very good vocal clarity, and, when listening to the Dolby Atmos demo disc, better overhead effects than my twin, ceiling height, wall mounted Tannoy sfx speakers. Remarkably inexpensive for what it offers the Sennheiser Ambeo now costs about the same as the Marantz SR7015 did on its own. The biggest single advantage of an A/V receiver-based separates system is its flexibility, and the biggest single advantage of a Sennheiser Ambeo based system is its lack of clutter. Besides being much easier to setup, and having fewer speakers to accommodate, the Sennheiser Ambeo is also much better value for money.
