Sony introduces the HT-A5000, its next soundbar with support for Dolby Atmos, DTS: X and HDMI 2.1

Sony has announced the arrival to its audio catalog of a new Sound bar high-mid-range compatible with Dolby Atmos y DTS:X which they have baptized with the name of HT-A5000.

We are faced with a model that comes standard without external subwoofer (although we can buy one separately) and that integrates multiple drivers under its housing with which to offer a sound system equivalent to a 5.1.2 channel set. These are processed in turn using the technologies Vertical Surround Engine and S-Force PRO Front Surround manufacturer.

The first is in charge of expand the sound field on the vertical axis simulating the experience of having speakers installed in the ceiling, while S-Force PRO Front Surround is responsible for recreating an even wider horizontal sound field.

Technology is also included Sound Field Optimization With which, thanks to its integrated microphones, it measures the height and width of the room as well as the position of the possible subwoofer and rear speakers if we have them, optimizing the set to offer a more homogeneous acoustic response.

9 amplifiers, two subwoofers and 450 watts

The bar has dimensions of 1210 x 67 x 140 mm and a total of 9 amplifiers offering a total of 450 watts. These stages are divided between dos tweeters placed at the ends that bounce the sound off the side walls and expand the surround sound, as well as with three front channels, two drivers on the top pointing to the ceiling for the Atmos effects and two other front oval drivers that double as subwoofers.
