Sony HD Sound Bar with Wireless Subwoofer
With all the talk about high-definition picture quality, it's sometimes easy to overlook the audio side of things. While there are plenty of hugely capable televisions on the market, the built-in speakers are frequently found to be lacking. Sony has quite a few home theater audio solutions to choose from right now, including the HD Sound Bar.
The Sony HTST7 HD Sound Bar with Wireless Subwoofer provides an immersive seven-channel sound experience, meaning you can feel as though you're right in the middle of the movie. Compare this with the “standard” five-channel arrangement and you'll be able to hear the difference. The HD Sound Bar was designed and tested with the help of award-winning Hollywood sound engineers.
As you'd expect from Sony by now, the HD Sound Bar supports both Dolby TrueHD as well as DTS audio playback, ensuring that your home theater experience matches what the directors intended when they created their films.
For the purposes of connectivity, the HD Sound Bar boasts three HDMI inputs, allowing you to connect all of your favorite devices at once. Whether it's a Blu-ray player, a CD player or a gaming console, they can all stay connected at all times.
With the Sony HTST7 HD Sound Bar with Wireless Subwoofer, Sony is also embracing wireless technology in fresh new ways. The included sub-woofer is wireless, allowing you to place it anywhere in the room without having to run cables. That same wireless technology allows your Bluetooth-enabled devices to stream music seamlessly and easily to the HD Sound Bar. By cutting down on cable clutter, Sony is also cutting down on frustrations.
No matter what sort of entertainment you favor, the HD Sound Bar might be a great choice. More and more music is being released in the form of surround sound mixes, which means you'll finally get to hear the “definitive” versions of your favorite albums. Video games, too, have come to embrace surround sound in the last few years, so now you can feel as though you're taking part in the action in a very real way.
The Sony HD Sound Bar isn't the only home theater solution on the market, but there's no denying it contains some of the most impressive technology available right now.
