Sony today announced a new range of Sound Bar and TV Base Speaker models, which it says will bring you room-filling, cinematic sound. That’s quite the ambition.
The HT-CT780 Sound Bar adds immersive, widescreen 2.1-channel audio to your TV viewing. It is sleek, yet powerful, so it will be able to do justice to the picture size and quality of modern TVs without taking up too much room. The sound bar can access music stored on your smartphone or tablet with One-touch listening via NFC and Bluetooth. It can also be controlled remotely from your smartphone or tablet with Sony’s SongPal mobile app.
The HT-CT380 and HT-CT381 Sound Bars are apparently ideal for TVs up to 46-inches in size. They provides 300W of powerful 2.1 channel surround sound, with S-Force PRO Front Surround for an immersive experience. They also feature One-touch listening via NFC and Bluetooth, and can be controlled from your phone or tablet with the SongPal app.
Finally, Sony also announced the HT-XT100 TV Base Speaker, which sits underneath your TV and adds a bit of oomph to your viewing experience. It provides 80W of muscular 2.1 channel sound, with solidly-controlled bass from the integrated subwoofer. Once again, you can stream music from your smartphone with NFC and Bluetooth, and you can also play music from a USB Memory Drive and play your favourite tunes.
Sony’s Sound Bar and TV Base Speakers will be available from spring 2015.
