Sony HT-A9 review


Can Sony's A9 speaker system deliver convincing Dolby Atmos home cinema?

Not fussy about positioning ; Entertaining, detailed, cinematic ; Strong feature set

The additional sub is pricey ; Slightly bright with stereo music ; Appearance is a bit bland

Sony’s A9 speaker system redefines accessible home cinema sound with an innovative, immersive and flexible solution

Sony HT-A9 review: All-in-one wireless surround sound that works


Sony's audio-mapping technology makes four speakers sound like a 16-speaker array, enveloping users in an impressive bubble of sound.

Sony’s audio-mapping technology works exactly as promised ; Remarkably flexible, adaptible to a wide variety of spaces ; Guided setup is easy to follow

Depends on an added-cost subwoofer for the full experience ; Depends on a strong and stable Wi-Fi connection ; Expensive, especially when you add in the sub

Sony HT-A9: A serious rival to full sized surround sound (review) - GadgetGuy


Sony's HT-A9 has no right to sound as good as it does. It outperforms every other soundbar on the market and even rivals a full-fat surround sound system.

Delivers a level of immersive sound that other soundbars can't ; Flexibility in speaker placement ; Easy to setup and use ; Speakers take up very little space ; Living room friendly design blends in with most decours ; Sounds just as good with music as...

Wireless interference might be an issue for some rooms ; Wireless sub should really be included with the package ; All four speakers require a power outlet

Sony’s wireless HT-A9 setup uses psychoacoustics to create a dome of sound with a dozen “phantom” speakers with surprisingly convincing results.
