HT-A9 Home Theater System

Enjoy an immersive wireless surround sound experience with the Sony HT-A9 Home Theater System. The A9 home theater system is ready to go straight out the box – simply plug it in, connect it to the TV using HDMI and power on. 

Feel sound from every direction and distance with Sony’s revolutionary 360 Spatial Sound and Sound Field Optimization. With Sound Field Optimization, the A9 uses dual microphones in each speaker to ingeniously measure their relative height and position. 360 Spatial Sound Mapping technology then creates up to twelve phantom speakers from just four speakers by synthesizing sound waves.

There’s no need to rearrange furniture or precisely position the speakers – with Sound Field Optimization, 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. To activate Sound Field Optimization, perform Easy Setup at any time from the TV’s home menu. The four speakers connect wirelessly to the control box so there’s no cables across the living room. Simply place the control box near the TV and link up via HDMI.

The 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 color is designed to seamlessly blend with interiors.

The insides of the speakers feature two rectangular X-Balanced Speaker Units to maximize the diaphragm area for richer bass and sound pressure. They also offer a new Wide Directivity Woofer that has reduced cavity effect by minimizing the depth of its concave shape. The speakers’ beveled edges help to further reduce sound diffraction.
