On Tuesday, Shanghai-based automobile manufacturer NIO announced a new cooperation agreement with Dolby Laboratories. The electric sedan model NIO ET7 will come with Dolby Atmos surround sound technology, bringing customers a premium in-car listening experience through its 7.1.4 immersion sound system.
NIO unveiled that its NIO ET7 comes as a standard with 23 speakers and a total output of 1000W. The four primary channels use a three-way speaker array featuring a dedicated treble, mid-tone and bass driver, a subwoofer, plus four overhead speakers.
At the same time, NIO Radio, the firm’s exclusive radio station, will also benefit from the Dolby Atmos cooperation. At present, the company has not disclosed the subscription price of the NIO Radio Dolby Atmos Program.
NIO ET7 made its debut at NIO Day 2020 held in Chengdu in January 2021, positioning itself as a medium- and large-sized flagship sedan with a total length of over 5 meters and a wheelbase of over 3 meters.
The Dolby Atmos is a surround sound technology developed by Dolby Laboratories, officially released in 2012. It can create more realistic sound effects and bring all-round hearing enjoyment to the audience, so it is widely used in cinemas and luxury cars.
