Sony HT-X9000F

Powered sound bar with wireless subwoofer, Dolby Atmos®, and Bluetooth®

Overview

Our take on the Sony HT-X9000F

I've experienced truly immersive Atmos sound in a theater setting, and it's pretty darn cool. The sound of a plane flying overhead almost had me looking up! But achieving that kind of three-dimensional sound at home takes time, money, and usually a bit of living-room real estate. Sony's new HT-X9000F sound bar is an easy, budget-friendly way to experience Atmos at home.

Affordable Atmos

I've experienced truly immersive Atmos sound in a theater setting, and it's pretty darn cool. The sound of a plane flying overhead almost had me looking up! But achieving that kind of three-dimensional sound at home takes time, money, and usually a bit of living-room real estate. Sony's new HT-X9000F sound bar is an easy, budget-friendly way to experience Atmos at home.

Sony's Vertical Surround Engine simulates overhead effects.

Sony's Vertical Surround Engine uses digital processing to simulate overhead effects.

How does it work?

Traditionally the overhead effects of Atmos and DTS:X have been achieved with upward-firing speakers (or in-ceiling speakers if you have that capability). But Sony unveils some new surround sound technology with the HT-X9000 — Vertical Surround Engine.

This proprietary digital processing simulates height effects using only the sound bar's two front-firing speakers. Since it doesn't need to reflect sound off the ceiling or the walls, you can experience enveloping sound in rooms of almost any size, shape, or ceiling height.

It fits right in

The HT-X9000F was designed to perfectly complement Sony's X900F TVs, with slightly tapered ends to nestle right inside the TV's base. But its streamlined style will look great underneath any TV, and it even includes keyhole slots for wall-mounting.

Cut the cords (or most of them, anyway)

The included subwoofer is wireless for flexible placement (though it still needs AC power, of course!). And if you want to keep it really clean, you can even use built-in Bluetooth® to wirelessly connect the sound bar to compatible TVs or stream music from compatible smartphones, tablets, and computers.
