With a wireless subwoofer that's ultra-slim so it can be discretely positioned beneath your seat, it packs a mighty audio punch that fills your living room, adding a whole new dimension of supreme sound to your visual and audio entertainment. Bluetooth and NFC allow easy wireless connection to your smart device, while built-in Wi-Fi can stream music directly from the internet. Also compatible with Sony's multiroom range of speakers, this beautifully compact and equipped sound system will make your films, TV shows and music sound simply superb.
High Resolution Sony Sonics
This 2.1 channel sound bar supports Dolby Digital and features S-Force PRO Front Surround. This technology reproduces a virtual surround acoustic field for immersive, cinematic, powerful sound of stirring depth and clarity. And all from just two front-facing speakers. Don't be fooled by this sound bar's compact design, it commands large-scale audio. High- Resolution Audio adds an extra dimension to your listening. Based on encoding and playback at a higher sampling rate than standard, high and low frequencies are extended for a greater level of detail across the whole sonic range. The result is studio quality sound, just as the artist originally intended. LDAC technology ensures no loss of quality over a wireless connection and DSEE HX upscales compressed audio formats to the same quality.
The wireless subwoofer takes care of the low frequencies for rumbling bass that you can feel, adding depth, energy and realism to what you're watching, whether it's high-octane action or an orchestral symphony. Its ultra-slim design means it can be placed upright next to your furniture or lying down, so it's happy tucked under the sofa. In Sofa mode it's discretely out of view, bass frequencies are optimised and sound loss from cushions is eliminated.
With optical, digital and analogue inputs it's simple to connect your TV, while a side USB port allows you to play music straight from USB stick. Connect up with compatible devices with just one cable via the HDMI output. And with Bluetooth and NFC, link up your smart device wirelessly in an instant, to stream your music and give your favourite tunes a new lease of life. Using Sony's SongPal app (available on Android and iOS) you can adjust settings and control playback straight from your phone. Meanwhile, Wi-Fi opens up a wealth of online entertainment. With Chromecast built-in you can stream music, podcasts, radio, and access Google Play. Or play tunes direct from music streaming services such as Spotify.*
It's compatible with Sony's multi-room audio equipment, so you can play your tunes throughout the entire house. Controlled using the SongPal app (available on iOS and Android), just link up with other compatible speakers and crank up the volume.
The HT-MT500 is designed with a minimal touch, to match your home interior, but to provide mighty room-filling sound that belies its size. Soft angles align with your furnishings, while its compact style is harmonious and space-saving.
*Please note: a Spotify Premium account is required to use Spotify services on this sound bar.
