”Sennheiser’s Dolby Atmos soundbar remains the high-end benchmark.” ’What Hi-Fi?’ 2020 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 1 out of 5 by from Disappointment First one worked for about 6 weeks and was good. Then started randomly switching itself off. Then stopped working altogether. It was returned and a replacement supplied. The display did not work and it would not connect to the internet. Returned again this time for a refund. Expect something costing over £2000 to work properly

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Great Sound but reliability questionable First Amber Soundbar worked for 1 hour then lost all dialogue from centre channel. Richer Sound staff in Cardiff (John the manager) ordered me a replacement without question. The replacements oundbar came 2 weeks later. Still undecided whether it needs to be returned as two days after set-up the display keeps throwing up message "DSP boot failure". Carried out a factory reset twice and its seems to be working OK but will not connect ti Wi-fi. Will give it i more chance before seeking refund.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best sound in most minimalistic* setup Best soundbar advantage is sound clarity by far - when listening music in Ambeo boost mode sound stage is incredibly wide feels like a live performance. Performs outstanding given good sound source bit worse when the source is just stereo. Now talking about low frequencies it’s ok - but considering the price and that other cheaper systems can go deeper and give more impact I would say probably not worth the money. But… one of the biggest advantages that Ambeo offers is ability to hook up any subwoofer - and that changes everything- especially if your coming from other soundbar cinema system where sub is mediocre. I paid it with SVS sb1000 pro and movies are full of impact seriously that changes how I view them now and seriously prefer my home setup compared to going to cinema. Last word on immersion - depends on room and distance to side walls - too close and the sound angle will be narrowed, too far away and it will lose it as well. I have left side bit too close and right full of obstacles and still sound is immersive enough, not like proper 5.1 system but I can hear 160 degree sound and height channel is there as well (but more like .2 system definitely not .4). All in all if you can buy it with sub and restricted on space to install full 5.1 system - go for it - if you only can afford soundbar or have room for proper 5.2 system - don’t - you can get something else better for less or similar money

Rated 4 out of 5 by from The benchmark soundbar A soundbar with many of the features of an AV amp but without the clutter. Usefully, it has 3 HDMI inputs and an HDMI eARC which means that you have the option to route all your av sources through the soundbar and on to the TV (rather than through the TV and onto the soundbar.) Why is this useful? Because this gives you a workaround if you encounter audio delay when routing your signals through the TV (you almost certainly will). For a soundbar it is large, but when compared to placing 3 front, 2 surround and upfiring Atmos speakers, it is quite neat. Due to the larger speakers used in this soundbar you don’t strictly need to use a sub bass speaker, but if you do, the automatic alignment balances the sub speaker with the rest of the system really naturally, (especially compared to the majority of smaller soundbars which in my experience are mostly all overblown boom and fizz!) Yes it is expensive, but you should compare it to a decent AV amp and speakers rather than most other soundbars. I had a couple of faults with my first Ambeo soundbar, but Richer Sounds customer service was amazing, swapping the unit out within 24 hrs.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good enough to replace a full hifi separates syste I decided to buy this Sennheiser Ambeo after reviewing it extensively. I looked at the best way to purchase it and found it to be Richer Sounds and that they were able to deliver it within 24 hrs. So this is exactly what I did and did it by phone, the guy who dealt with my order could not have been better. Since setting it up, I have no regrets whatsoever and recommend this to anyone...

Rated 5 out of 5 by from surpassed all expectations not had this bar long but i cant praise it enough i started off with the bar on my fire mantel and it sounded very good but after a couple of days I noticed the bar was not ear level so I lifted the fire surround up place it back on top ran the mike test again with my bar at ear level and wow fantastic i get sound over head sound plus both side walls, its a natural full bodied sound, and the dialogue is very clear and just to finish off Mark at Richer sounds Prestwich was very helpful with good advice

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very impressed with the Ambeo I have owned this sound(beast) for a couple of weeks now and have to say that it has been a revelation. I came from a traditional 5.1 surround sound system which I had shoe horned into the lounge in my new house. It didn't really fit, and speaker positioning was not optimal. I wanted to get a soundbar that would hopefully get as close to the quality that I had on the separates (Anthem amp, Ken Kreisel Quattro Speakers) and I genuinely believe I have managed to do that. I have partnered it with my old SVS SB2000 sub, so there is a bit more grunt to the bass notes than just the soundbar on its own would provide. I have connected a BT Vision box and nVidia Shield Pro. I do not use the ARC / eARC on my TV as it is a bit of a dinosaur FHD Plasma. It was super easy to set up (although the calibration failed a couple of times as I forgot to switch the Subwoofer on during the calibration!). I have programmed my Harmony Remote to swtich it on at the same time as the TV and source and this works flawlessly. Installed it on an IKEA Besta wall mounted unit and managed to feed all the cables through a hole I drilled through the top of the Besta and it looks completely wireless as the hole is hidden by the Ambeo covering it - it really looks neat and tidy. The sound this thing kicks out is incredible. I downloaded some Atmos content to play through Plex on the nVidia Shield and it does a great job of throwing sounds around the room. My sofa is pushed right up against the back of the lounge wall, and the sound is most definitely weighted towards the front and side, but you do feel like it fills the whole room and the height channels do make a difference. Not so sure about the sound "behind" you, but this thing can't defy the laws of physics, although it really makes an amazing attempt to do so. I also played the pod race scene from Star Wars E1 and I was blown away. It is a pretty big and heavy piece of kit, but to replace 5 speakers and and amplifier and perform in the way it does, I am over the moon. Highly recommended.
