Enjoy Immersive Surround Sound with Sony Home Audio

Sony’s Signature Soundbar and 360 Reality Audio Offer the Ultimate Immersive Sound Experience

Enjoy Immersive Surround Sound with Sony Home Audio

You’ve probably heard of Sony Entertainment, Sony Pictures, and Sony Electronics. There’s not much in the entertainment industry that this brand does not encompass. What’s telling is that they sit on both sides of the entertainment fence. As movie producers with a film library exceeding 3,500 titles and creators of some of the best TVs and projectors, they also offer the best audio performance on the market.

Sony knows the effort directors put into the final cut and understand the technology that creates the immersive, lifelike cinematic experience. From the first compact disc and wireless speaker setup to 360-degree audio, they’ve remained on the cutting edge of technology since their inception in 1969.

In 2021, Sony home audio added to their elite production line, creating a new flagship soundbar and 360 Reality Audio. Let’s explore the brand’s latest creations and what they can offer your home in Vancouver, OR.

The Signature Soundbar

In 2021, Sony came out with a new home-theater sound system. The HT-A7000 is the company's latest flagship soundbar and provides a 7.1.2 immersive audio experience. This translates to five front drivers, two up-firing speakers that bounce the overhead channels from the ceiling, and two beam tweeters that reflect the surround sound channels off the side walls. 

If you add the optional rear-surround speakers and a subwoofer, you experience Sony’s 360 Spatial Sound Mapping that creates phantom speakers. Listeners experience a multi-dimensional, engulfing sound field and high-resolution audio as the creator intended. It’s compatible with Dolby Atmos, the latest surround sound technology, and 360 Reality Audio. 

360 Reality Audio

Sony’s immersive 360 Reality Audio brings 3D effects to music. When listening to music using this technology, you can hear each instrument coming from a specific place within the 3D field that surrounds you. For instance, you may hear the string section above and over to the left and the drums to the right. Some music services with compatible 360 Reality Audio content include TIDAL, Deezer, and Amazon Music Unlimited. 

Sony Bravia Cam

The CES 2022 Best of Innovation Awards Honoree went to the Bravia Cam. This ingenious device connects to Sony’s BRAVIA XR TVs. It recognizes where people are sitting in a room and how far they are from the TV and then adjusts the sound for optimum balance and acoustics. The audio is clearer and more immersive, and you enjoy the same sound quality no matter where you’re sitting in the room.
