Spectacular Sony Sonics
This 7.1.2 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. Seven coaxial woofers and tweeters work together to produce precisely aligned audio. High Resolution Audio raises the grade of your listening to an exemplary level. 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 pristine standard. The unit's S-Master HX digital amplifier reduces distortion for complete signal purity, and Clear Audio+ tech automatically adjusts EQ settings depending on what you're listening to, so you always hear the best possible delivery.
Thrilling Three Dimensional Dolby Atmos
Dolby Atmos treats sound sources within a three dimensional space, so whatever you're watching or listening to, the audio is remarkably immersive and spatially separated. Sounds are accurately positioned within your environment so you are completely enveloped in sound. Two additional Dolby Atmos-optimised speakers bounce the signal off the ceiling to place audio above and even behind you.
Powerful Wireless Subwoofer
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.
The HT-ST500 integrates effortlessly into your home cinema set-up with a full complement of HDMI, optical and analogue ports. A side USB slot means you can enjoy music straight from USB stick, in High Resolution. 4K HDR HDMI pass-through allows for the purest transmission of TV signal around your AV equipment with no loss in signal quality. With Bluetooth and NFC you can connect your smart device wirelessly in an instant, to stream your music and give your favourite tunes a new lease of life. Using Sony's Music Center 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 you can play tunes direct from music streaming services such as Spotify.* It's even compatible with Google Home so you can control your music selections and volume with just your voice.
It's compatible with Sony's multi-room audio equipment, so you can play your tunes throughout the entire house. Controlled using the Sony Music Center app (available on iOS and Android), just link up with other compatible speakers and crank up the volume for spectacular, home-filling sound.
