Samsung has introduced the new Wireless Audio Radiant 360 R7, the company’s first omnidirectional speaker with a sleek, new design. The R7 uses Samsung’s “Ring Radiator” technology delivering a rich audio experience with balanced room-filling sound, more so than any other conventional speaker. Featuring a sleek oval-shaped sculptured design, R7 delivers 360 degrees of premium, omnidirectional sound. Designed to fit virtually any space, it features wireless connectivity, and is an innovative way for consumers to listen to their favorite content.

“Developed in Samsung’s new state-of-the-art Audio Lab in Valencia, CA, the R7 combines revolutionary technology with elegant design that will redefine and enhance the home audio category in 2015,” said Jim Kiczek, Vice President of Audio Group, Samsung Electronics America. “Unlike traditional speakers, which require specific placement and the listener to sit in a ‘sweet spot’ for full enjoyment, the R7 envelopes any listener in full auditory bliss regardless of their position creating a truly immersive entertainment experience.”

The R7 also works with Samsung’s new Multiroom App 2.0, which makes it possible to share music across connected devices in the home, while its user interface both simplifies and transforms the listening experience. The new and upgraded version of the Multiroom App is available on both Android and iOS, so that users can enjoy their favorite music on multiple Wi-Fi-connected devices. The new App boasts an improved user interface with a new central wheel dial for more intuitive navigation. Custom queue lists can now be browsed easily with just the touch of a finger. The Multiroom App 2.0 makes it possible to easily control speakers, music sources and playlists, while simultaneously browsing your music library– all in one place.

The R7 can seamlessly connect to select Samsung TVs, select soundbars and mobile devices and offers a stylish build that captures the style and elegance of virtually any home décor. The R7 is truly a location free speaker that delivers unmatched sound balance and quality inside and outside the home. With Multiroom Link, the R7 can connect to Samsung’s ecosystem of multi-room audio products all controlled by your mobile device. The R7 will be available this month at a retail price of $499.99
