This slim 2.1ch all-in-one speaker with Dolby Atmos, DTS-X and Vertical Sound Engine creates a thrilling soundscape that seems to come from all around you. Its built-in dual subwoofer packs mighty bass power, while Bluetooth lets you connect wirelessly to compatible TVs and stream music from your smart device.
Vertical Surround Engine with Dolby Atmos
Sony's Vertical Surround Engine technology allows you to experience Dolby Atmos sound from a single slim unit. Dolby Atmos treats sound sources within a three dimensional space, so whatever you're watching or listening to, the audio is immersive and spatially separated. The HT-X8500 also features S-Force PRO Front Surround which reproduces a virtual surround acoustic field for cinematic, powerful sound. With five special modes available at the touch of a button on the remote, instantly pick the best EQ settings for whatever you're watching, be it movies, music, games, news or sports.
Powerful Built-In Subwoofer
Its built-in subwoofer takes care of the low frequencies for rumbling bass that you can feel. It adds depth, energy and realism to what you’re watching, whether it’s high–octane action or an orchestral symphony.
Bluetooth & HDMI ARC Connections
With Bluetooth you can connect to your smart device wirelessly in an instant, to stream your music and give your favourite tunes a new lease of life. The HDMI ARC connection allows you to connect to your TV with a single cable, and the HDMI channels support all the latest HDR formats for 4K HDR signal pass-through.
With slim styling the HT-X8500 is at home in any home entertainment set-up. It's been styled by Sony to complement their BRAVIA TVs. With matching design it fits below the TV and can connect to it wirelessly, together delivering a, thrillingly immersive cinema experience at home.
