Sony India on Monday launched its premium range of Home Theater System HT-A9 and HT-A7000 soundbar, offering a new and revolutionary multi-dimensional sound experience. Powered with innovative 360 SSM surround sound technology that creates an incredibly immersive soundscape for any movie, music, or gaming experience.

360 Spatial Sound Mapping Technology

The HT-A9 and HT-A7000 home theatre systems come with Sony’s revolutionary 360 Spatial Sound and Sound Field Optimization recreating a theatrical experience. The A9 uses dual microphones in each speaker to ingeniously measure their relative height and position, allowing the system to generate twelve phantom speakers that completely encircle the room in immersive spatial sound. The HT-A9 features Sony’s latest Omnidirectional Block Design. The cylindrical shape represents a single solid block providing 360 spatial sound. It fits perfectly against the wall with a flat rear surface and its light pearl grey colour is designed to seamlessly blend with the interiors.

Dolby Atmos and DTS:Xtechnology

Featured with Dolby Atmos and DTS:X, the HT-A9 and HT-A7000 creates a virtual sound field so the listeners can fully enjoy the audio with a much more thrilling and realistic experience.

High-Resolution and 360 Reality Audio

The high-resolution music can be enjoyed through compatible music streaming services and the 360 Reality Audiowill virtually taking the user right in front of their favourite artist by creating an accurate sound field. The HT-A9 and HT-A7000 also feature DSEE Extreme, which upscales compressed digital music in real-time. The user can easily access popular music services like Spotify and stream their favorite albums and playlists with Bluetooth, using Chromecast, Apple AirPlay 2 or Spotify Connect. All the original picture quality is preserved when playing content through both HT-A9 and HT-A7000.

Voice activation feature for a hassle-free experience with Alexa and Google Assistant

The HT-A9 and HT-A7000 soundbars features voice activation and works with both Google Assistant and Amazon Alexa which gives the user a hassle-free experience while watching their favorite movies and listening to their favorite music tracks.

The HT-A9 and HT-A7000 both come with an option to choose the type of wireless subwoofer. For richer bass, add the SA-SW5 wireless subwoofer with 300W of deep bass from a 180mm driver with passive radiator. Or, users can opt for the SA-SW3 wireless subwoofer with 200W of sound from a compact bass reflex subwoofer with a 160mm driver.
