Sony recently revealed a new expansion to its range of home entertainment sound bars and speakers at this year’s CES. The Sony HT-S200F, HT-X9F, and HT-X9000F are sleek, stylish, and promise an enhanced and connected listening experience for any home entertainment system.
Serious Sound, With Stylish Design
The Sony HT-S200F is a 2.1ch Compact Sound Bar. It gives you that cinematic sound feeling from the comfort of your own sofa, all while looking really good. After all, it’s designed to complement any piece of furniture it’s placed on.
Stylish, sleek, and with its all-in-one capabilities, it’s a perfect for for any home, even smaller living spaces! It will easily fit on shelves or a console table placed either in front of, or beside the TV. The leather look top and piano black sides keep things classy, and easy to match.
For all its good looks, it doesn’t skimp on quality either. Pick a movie or TV show to watch, and you’ll hear all the low frequency sounds and clear voices, all from the sound bar. It doesn’t need a separate subwoofer, because it has a built-in one of its own!
It also comes with Dolby Digital, which produces unparalleled sound for your living room. The inclusion of S-Force PRO Front Surround in it allows you to feel like you’re surrounded by speakers. Except you’ll have none of the wired mess that usually comes with that feeling.
Another way it helps you keep your space neat and tidy is with its simple connectivity. It can connect to your TV via one cable HDMI ARC, or Bluetooth. It can also wirelessly connect to other smart devices with Bluetooth technology. Alternatively, for those moments when you want to quickly connect and instantly play a song, you can always use the USB input! Just plug it in, and get your music going.
The Sony HT-S200F will be available in Charcoal Black in Singapore from the second quarter of 2018.
Experience A New Level Of Cinematic Audio Environment
Along with the HT-S200F, Sony also announced the world premiere of their new Dolby Atmos supported sound bars. The Sony HT-Z9F and Sony HT-X9000F are designed to further an enhanced, connected, and compelling listening experience for consumers.
The premium HT-Z9F Sound Bar comes with Dolby Atmos/DTS:X, developed through Sony’s unique virtual technology. It brings a new level of impressive cinematic-audio environment to any home entertainment set up.
It’s pretty compact, measuring in at a sleek 100cm x 6.4cm x 9.9cm and 3.1kg for the bar speaker, and a discreet 19cm x 38.2cm x 38.6cm (8.1kg for the subwoofer. Yet for all its compactness, it can still pack a hefty audio punch.
With the introduction of the Sony Vertical Surround Engine in the Z9F sound bar, you can practically feel the helicopters whizzing above you as you watch your favourite action show. It creates a virtual 3-D surround sound experience, without the need for ceiling reflection or up-firing speakers.
Combined with the S-Force PRO Front Surround technology, it recreates the feeling of being surrounded by speakers for a true home theatre environment. You can enjoy virtual 3-D sound even without Dolby Atmos and DTS:X content. Pressing the “Vertical S.” button on the remote pushes the HT-Z9F to mix 2ch stereo content up to 7.1.2ch.
If you want a full physical surround sound experience, you can easily add a pair of rear speakers like the SA0Z9R. It’s even specially designed to go with the HT-Z9F!
A Match Made In Heaven
Both sound bars are designed to match a selection of the new Sony BRAVIA TVs’ aesthetic for an elegant set-up. The sound bars’ shape fits perfectly between the base of a Sony BRAVIA TV. Additionally, the HT-X9000F has the edges chamfered off at an angle to fit inside the legs of a Sony TV stand. It also specifically matches the design of the Sony X9000F TV.
Ideal for minimalist interiors, the slim design blends seamlessly into any living space. The two sound bars give you the option of going cable-free, via Bluetooth connectivity, so you don’t need to worry about cluttering up your space.
The Z9F also has Wi-Fi connectivity for access to music services from the Chromecast built-in. It also works with Google Assistant so you can enjoy a voice-operated music experience. Just speak, and get your sound bar streaming!
With up to 2 HDMI input and 1 output connectivity, multiple devices can be connected to the sound bar. Both models also have USB connectivity in addition to Bluetooth technology.
The HT-Z9F and HT-X9000F will be available in Singapore in the second quarter of 2018.
