There is a TV in my bedroom. It is likely the last of its kind. The sound is worse than the picture. According to my editor, most TV experiences are made better by a soundbar. To say that it did not fail is an understatement.
I was able to play Harry Styles from a speaker other than my phone thanks to the Ray. The sound in the room was perfect no matter what I played.
Listen to the sound check.
I didn't know about the "hypnotic effects" that Lauren said it has on your audio life, so I didn't buy one. I know that they sound good, look nice, and are well-reputed, even though I haven't been in close proximity to them.
It wasn't until I used my new soundbar that I realized what made it so special. It was the easiest piece of electronics to set up. The app only took a few minutes to get the Ray up and running. I plugged the Ray into an outlet and connected it to my TV with the included optical cable, and then followed the simple prompt to start Trueplay tuning. After about five minutes, everything was over and I had Grey's Anatomy on.
Trueplay tuning is a technology that uses sound the way whales do to map the sound of your room, and we have seen it in speakers. The speaker on your phone is used to bounce sound waves around in your room to improve your listening experience. During your initial setup in the app, you can enable this, or you can start the tuning process later. In apartments, bedrooms, and other smaller spaces, this feature can make a big difference. The only limitation is that it doesn't work with other operating systems.
True play is not a trick. The dialog was clear when I watched dramas like Surface as the speaker adjusted between the show's score and when the characters spoke. The Ray handled the action movies well, filling my small bedroom with Star Wars and lightsabers.
If I needed to hear something while I was in the kitchen or at my desk I could keep it quiet. The sound was balanced and crisp all the time.
