Sony ES Series Home Theater Speaker System

Sony ES Series Home Theater Speaker System

Sony announced the $23,000 ES series 5.1 home theater speaker system which includes the SS-NA2ES floorstander, SS-NA5ES bookshelf, SS-NA8ES center channel and SA-NA9ES subwoofer. The new ES natural acoustic speaker systems further the line established the last two years with the introduction of the SS-AR1 and SS-AR2 Loudspeakers.

Like the AR-series, the natural acoustic ES-series features a solid enclosure utilizing the same Scandinavian birch, even for its internal bracings, a wood highly regarded for its acoustic resonance and performance consistent with the AR-series. The crafting and assembly of the materials is done entirely by hand by Japan’s finest woodworking artisans to ensure precision.

The SS-NA2ES and SS-NA5ES two-way speaker systems adopt the AR-series design which partitions the woofer in a sub-enclosure to isolate the mid-range and minimize the effects of woofer back-radiation, reproducing the most fundamental frequencies clear, crisp and undistorted.

Sony’s unique I-Array tweeter system addresses the challenge of combining multiple sound sources, while avoiding peaks and dips that change sound coloration and create unnatural tones. The I-Array design and layout allows the tweeters (one tweeter coupled with two super tweeters) to function like a single tweeter with very wide dispersion. Expanding the dispersion of the sound creates a natural balance across frequencies, providing a sense of vividness and real naturalness the human ear can appreciate.
