SONY HOME THEATRE SOUND BAR SPEAKER JOINS 2013 HOME AUDIO LINEUP
TORONTO, Aug. 8, 2013 – Sony Canada today introduced the HT-ST7 sound bar speaker, a 7.1-channel sound bar and the company’s first-ever entry in the premium sound bar category. Available at Sony Stores and authorized retailers across Canada this month for $1,399, the new Sony HT-ST7 sound bar speaker is packed with a feature set that complements Sony’s signature superior sound quality.
“Consumers demand great sound quality without compromising simplicity for their home entertainment,” said Noritaka Sawamura, Senior Vice President, Consumer Marketing and Retail, Sony of Canada. “Unlike many other sound bars that focus on making the TV louder, we focus on great sound, delivering a dynamic stage and an immersive true 7.1 home theatre experience. The result is a high-performance sound bar great for movies and music that is easy to set up and use.”
The sleek aluminum chassis of the Sony HT-ST7 sound bar speaker incorporates 9 independent speaker drivers and 7 discrete amplifiers. Using both Dolby TrueHD and DTS-HD Master Audio decoders for high-definition audio decoding, this system delivers the master quality sound experience with deep, clean bass from its high quality dual driver wireless subwoofer. Each component is meticulously designed to deliver the best audio reproduction possible, which results in great imaging with a wide sound stage, something traditionally found only in larger component based home theatres.
The HT-ST7 sound bar was engineered in collaboration with Academy Award-winning sound engineers at Sony Pictures Studios, and redefines “movie night at home” with magnetic fluid speakers producing clear dialogue, S-Master Digital Amplifiers presenting high-quality music enhancing expressive emotions, and S-Force Pro Front Surround to reproduce even the most subtle and faintest sound effects.
Sony’s HT-ST7 sound bar serves as a perfect solution for listening to music with any mobile device. With its built-in wireless Bluetooth connection (with support for AAC and AptX) users can simply connect any mobile phone or tablet through a single press of the “Bluetooth Sync” button. Additionally, the Sony HT-ST7 incorporates OneTouch NFC (Near Field Communication) technology, enabling an instant link to music simply by touching a compatible device to the sound bar.
With its easy quick-start guide, this speaker system is simple to assemble and install. The Sony HT-ST7 sound bar speaker uses advanced technologies like Audio Return Channel (ARC) and HDMI for convenient set up with just a single cable. Unlike other comparably priced models, the HT-ST7 sound bar includes a total of 7 inputs (3 HDMI, 3 digital audio and 1 analog), making it flexible enough to support a variety of AV components.
