Imagine Darth Vader without his theme or Blade Runner without the patter of rain. Sound plays a crucial role in movies, and as we pursue bigger and better screens so too should we acquire greater audio fidelity. Make your next purchase a considerable upgrade with these Sony Dolby Atmos soundbars.
FROM THEATER TO HOME: THE MAGIC OF DOLBY ATMOS
Think of Dolby Atmos as an audio bubble, providing sound not just around us but above us too. From explosive summer blockbusters to hushed horror flicks, everything is rendered with astonishing clarity, depth, and positional accuracy. Sony’s Dolby Atmos soundbars deliver that same cinematic experience to your living room in a fuss-free package, so immersive movie getaways are yours any time, any day of the week.
THE SONY TOUCH: NOT ALL SOUNDBARS ARE THE SAME
How can a single soundbar do it? Sony’s S-Force Pro Front Surround creates that 360-degree sound field using only front speakers, yet it’s the groundbreaking Vertical Surround Engine that virtually adds those height channels for Dolby Atmos. You won’t need extra speakers, and it works regardless of ceiling shape or height.
What’s more, all content can be upscaled to as close to 7.1.2 surround with just the click of a button, bringing the 3D audio magic to movies, TV shows, and even music. Sony’s soundbars are perfectly equipped to handle high- resolution music, so quality is never compromised.
FOR EVERYONE AND ANYONE: COMPLEXITY BEHIND SIMPLICITY
A wireless subwoofer, generous wired and wireless connection options, plus features such as 4K HDR pass through position these soundbars as true home entertainment hubs. Continue playing your phone’s music when you get home using Sony’s hi-res LDAC format. Wirelessly cast a video from your laptop, waking both the TV and soundbar thanks to HDMI CEC. Or easily switch sound modes with dedicated remote buttons to better suit your needs.
FINDING THE PERFECT MATCH
Yet one size can never truly fit all, which is why Sony are offering three models in their exciting Dolby Atmos line up. Here’s how they differ from one another.
HT-ST5000 – The new benchmark for Dolby Atmos soundbars
A flagship for enthusiasts, the ST5000 uses coaxial speakers for wider audio projection and up-firing speakers for the native Dolby Atmos experience. A S-Master HX digital amplifier reduces distortion, while the Digital Sound Enhancement Engine (DSEE) HX carefully replaces lost harmonics. Plus, keep up with the action from anywhere in the house with wireless multi-room streaming.
HT-Z9F – The stepping stone to Dolby Atmos
Balancing hardware and virtualization, the Z9F is a go-to pick for the Dolby Atmos upgrade. Sony’s S-Force Pro Front Surround and Vertical Surround Engine guarantees immersive 3D surround in any room environment, while music lovers get to reap the benefits of hi-res audio. Comprehensive wired and wireless connectivity easily cements this as your home centerpiece.
HT-X9000F – For a taste of the Dolby Atmos experience
Consider the X9000F if space and budget are limiting factors. It perfectly exemplifies Sony’s surround sound technologies, supporting 7.1.2ch playback in a simple setup. You won’t be shortchanged on the basics either, as it retains the 4K HDR pass through, and HDCP 2.2 compliance to work with all the latest cinema formats.
