From source to speaker, Sony has united an array of technologies for the ultimate audio experience. For High-Resolution Audio files, the digital amp and specialised tweeters reproduce every subtlety, so you can hear each note as the artist intended. For MP3s, digital processing software upscales compressed music to restore lost detail.
2.1 channel system for powerful audio
Get 154W of powerful sound from a 2.1ch speaker system. Two mid-range magnetic fluid speakers deliver pure crisp vocals and complex melodies, supported by Wide Dispersion Super Tweeters which produce soaring highs and a wide soundstage. A powerful woofer works with passive radiators for resounding bass. So you can enjoy your music in clear, powerful audio, whatever the volume.
Boost your bass with a woofer and dual passive radiators
Get big bass lines from a compact speaker. Dual passive radiators work with a woofer and react to the movement of air through the speaker, artificially creating space in the speaker cabinet. This space allows more air to flow through the speakers, enabling even smaller units to deliver superior sound — especially at low-end frequencies.
Magnetic Fluid Speakers: clearer, more powerful sound
By eliminating conventional speaker dampers and replacing them with magnetic fluid speaker technology, noise and distortion are significantly reduced creating clearer, more powerful audio than ever before. Originally developed for NASA, magnetic fluid technology lets you fit great-sounding, more efficient speakers in a smaller space – ideal compact, premium speakers.
By mounting super tweeters on the front and top of the speaker, Sony has created a large sound field that maintains its quality across a full area. It’s the perfect complement for the high-band energy of your High-Resolution Audio, regardless of speaker position.
S-Master HX digital amp
The built-in S-Master HX digital amplifier helps bring out the best of your High-Resolution Audio. It achieves this by reducing the noise levels usually experienced in the high frequency ranges, so you can enjoy clear, sharp sound.
DSEE HX restores your music files
Go beyond CD quality. DSEE HX builds on our proprietary DSEE technology, upscaling compressed audio files to a level that’s closer to High-Resolution Audio. By restoring the subtleties of the original recording that are lost during the compression process, DSEE HX delivers a rich, studio-quality audio experience for all your music.
