AfterMaster TV fine-tunes your TV so you can hear the dialogue

Are you fed up of having to turn up the volume on your TV so you can hear the dialogue, but then when some action starts it SOUNDS REALLY LOUD? AfterMaster TV is for you.

It promises to fine-tune the audio output, making dialogue clearer while improving the sound quality of whatever else is happening. So there’s no need to pump up the volume to hear what’s said, then dive for the remote to turn it down once the bullets start flying.

Not only that, it also smooths out the transition between the volume differentials of a TV programme and the adverts. The adverts usually sound much louder than the show, but not with this they won’t.

The tech inside was developed for the music industry to remaster audio tracks.

It comes in three models: the standard AfterMaster TV system has one HDMI in and an A/V out. The Limited Edition model has these ports plus 3.5mm audio jacks so you can listen on headphones, and a rechargeable battery so you can use it on the go with your laptop, phone or tablet. And the AfterMaster TV Pro has the same features of the Limited Edition, plus an extra HDMI port.
