The producer and creators of Gran Turismo, a popular racing game title, talk about their experience with BRAVIA XR TV and HT-A9.
Surrounded on all sides by multiple phantom speakers within an optimized sound field, you’ll hear every flap of wing and gust of wind with incredible intensity. It’s like you and your living room are inside the movie.
An ultra-wide listening area fills every part of your living space so your family and friends get the same sound experience. The listening area is not limited to the front of the TV but encompasses a much wider space.
No need to rearrange your furniture or precisely position your speakers. The HT-A9 uses dual microphones in each speaker to ingeniously measure their relative height and position, allowing the system to generate 12 phantom speakers and completely encircle your room in immersive spatial sound.
Place the control box near the TV and link up via HDMI. The four speakers connect wirelessly to the control box so there’s no cables across your living space.
Activate Sound Field Optimization any time by performing Easy Setup from the home menu on the TV screen. The HT-A9 Home Theatre System intelligently measures the distance between speakers and ceiling for smart and easy set up.
Our speakers are designed with leading-edge technologies to deliver the supreme sound quality and wide directivity required for 360 Spatial Sound Mapping.

Or discover a new way of listening with 360 Reality Audio for a truly immersive live-concert or studio-session experience. With the HT-A9 Home Theatre System, your music comes to life like never before.
Using Edge-AI (Artificial Intelligence), DSEE Extreme™ (Digital Sound Enhancement Engine) upscales compressed digital music files in real time. Dynamically recognizing instrumentation, musical genres and individual elements of each song, such as vocals or interludes, it restores the high-range sound lost in compression for a richer, more complete listening experience.
See vivid scenes full of real-life colour and depth. All of the original picture quality is preserved when played through the HT-A9 Home Theatre System so you’ll be completely immersed in movies. Gaming is also much more thrilling and realistic, with support for the latest formats, such as Variable Refresh Rate (VRR) and Auto Low Latency Mode (ALLM) in HDMI 2.1.
