Sony home cinema systems compromise sound for size
Sony has launched three brand new home cinema systems that combine 3D viewing with impeccable surround sound quality, without filling your living room with bulky hardware.
The HT-AS5, HT-AF5 and BDV-470SS employ the best of the Japanese electronics giant's technology to make the viewing experience as close to professional cinema standard as possible. This includes the Digital Cinema Sound processing – developed in conjunction with Sony Pictures Entertainment – which works with the Auto Calibration to give the most accurate, most involving home cinema experience.
The systems can all be hooked up simply to a projector system or plasma TV for optimum viewing
The ultra-compact, four-speaker standard set-up of the HT-AS5 hides away its 1000W S-Master amplification in its subwoofer unit, which also contains all the audio processing and an FM RDS/AM radio tuner. The set-up is furthered in the HT-AF5 with tall, floor-standing front left and right channel speakers for and even bigger sound.
The BDV-470SS system then combines the HT-AS5 with the BDP-S470 3D Blu-ray player, making a complete ‘just add TV’ package.
The three systems also all possess 3D pass-through on 3 HDMI inputs and 1 output,â¨2 optical/1 coaxial digital input for games consoles or set-top boxes. Other specifications include 1000W output power from S-Master digital amplification andâ¨7.1-channel LPCM from Blu-ray players
