Sony Rolls Out New Home Theatre Audio

- By : Jake Nelson

Sony has unveiled a new soundbar and home theatre system for home entertainm­ent enthusiast­s.

The premium HT-A9 home theatre system and flagship HT-A7000 soundbar can create immersive home theatre and soundscape experience­s, according to Sony, using their surround sound technologi­es.

The HT-A9 uses Sony's 360 Spatial Sound and Sound Field Optimisati­on to map the positions of its four speakers and, by positionin­g sound waves, create up to twelve “phantom” speakers at optimal points throughout the room.

The HT-A7000, meanwhile, is a 7.1.2-channel soundbar with virtual surround sound and support for Dolby Atmos and DTS:X. Its Vertical Surround Engine can create overhead sound without the need for in-ceiling speakers.

Each has Amazon Alexa and Google Assistant voice control, can be expanded with optional subwoofers and rear speakers, and will be available from September.
