Xiaomi has finally brought its Mi Soundbar in the country for an attractive price of Rs. 4,999($71). The same will be available for purchase via Mi.com and Mi Home stores starting January 16.
The Mi Soundbar features 8 drives, consisting of 2 tweeters, 2 woofers, and 4 passive radiators powered by a 28W amplifier. The soundbar accepts optical, coaxial, RCA, and line-in inputs. There is also Bluetooth 4.2 for wireless connectivity. Strangely, the manufacturer hasn’t provided any remote control for the unit, and it’s not clear if it supports one at all.
Overall, it looks like a well-designed, affordable soundbar for basic listening but the relatively low power rating and the lack of a remote means you should definitely try it out first before purchasing.
Xiaomi also launched two new televisions. First is the Mi LED TV 4X PRO 55 that has a 4K HDR panel, 20W speakers, Xiaomi’s PatchWall UI built on top of Android TV OS and a new 64-bit quad-core Amlogic processor with 2GB RAM, 8GB storage and improved image processing. This model is priced at INR 39,999 ($568).
The other is the Mi LED TV 4A PRO 43, which has a 1080p display, 20W speakers, PatchWall UI, and a quad-core Amlogic processor with 1GB RAM and 8GB storage. This model is priced at INR 22,999 ($327).
