This cooperation with DTS to adopt the brand new Stereo Plus audio technology to create wider sound for the Tencent Dingdang Smart Display speaker will bring users an enhanced listening experience.”
DTS Stereo Plus technology greatly improves the acoustic performance from Bluetooth and Wi-Fi speakers utilizing industry-leading virtualization.
