Thanks to Sony’s virtual surround technology, the soundbar can position sound in vertical space – so you can experience three-dimensional audio without the need for in-ceiling or up-firing speakers. As well as Dolby Atmos® and DTS:X®, Vertical Surround Engine lends a more realistic, multi-dimensional sound to other formats too.
Surround made simple
Using front speakers only, Sony’s unique digital sound field processing technology virtually reproduces the surround sound field, with audio coming at you from both sides. You can enjoy rich, cinematic surround sound without cluttering your living space.
New upmixer brings surround to stereo content
With Sony's newly developed upmixer, you can experience three-dimensional surround sound not only with surround sound format content, but also with stereo content, like streaming video or music services. Analysing the track in real time, our new algorithm extracts individual sound objects depending on their localisation and reallocates them, giving you three-dimensional surround sound.
