Get enhanced audio quality for your favorite TV shows and movies with the Sony HT-Z9F 400W 3.1-Channel Network Soundbar System. It outputs up to 400W to deliver more powerful audio than can be found in typical flat-panel display speakers. The soundbar features an 1/8″ analog, optical audio, two HDMI inputs, and a USB port to connect compatible drives. Its HDMI output is ARC-compatible to bring display-based sound, such as that from built-in apps like Netflix or YouTube, directly into the soundbar. The HT-Z9F also features Bluetooth for pairing with your compatible smart device or display and Chromecast built-in for wireless streaming of your audio content. It includes an HDMI cable for instant connectivity and wall mounting hardware.
Vertical Surround Engine technology is designed to simulate 7.1.2-channel surround sound from Dolby Atmos and DTS:X content over HDMI, to make the sound seem like it’s coming from all around you.
Sony’s digital signal processing can convert nearly all your audio into immersive surround sound with the push of a button on the remote.
Five different sound modes help enhance your entertainment experience. Cinema mode helps provide a more immersive movie experience, while Game mode helps enhance the action in your gameplay. Sport mode helps to fine-tune ambient crowd noise so you can feel field-level action, while Music mode lets you hear the detail in your songs. News/Voice mode is designed to provide clear dialogue.
