Sony HT-AS5 Cinema Speaker System

640667.jpg

Sony Europe has just announced the HT-AS5 ultra-compact surround sound system that makes the most of the 3D experience. The HT-AS5 hides away its 1000W S-Master amplification in its subwoofer unit, which also contains all the audio processing for the system as well as an FM RDS/AM radio tuner. That just leaves four compact speakers on show, while Auto Calibration makes sure set-up is as accurate as possible, while the Digital Cinema Sound processing delivers the big screen sound experience.

3D pass-through is available on all three HDMI inputs, while the HDMI monitor output also has Audio Return Channel capability. This allows sound from a TV's internal tuner to be delivered through the surround system, halving the usual cable requirement.

BRAVIA® Sync allows an entire home cinema system to be controlled from one handset, while the 'Home Theatre Control' BRAVIA® Internet Widget will allow the TV's onscreen display to control the sound system.

The HT-AS5 systems is available now for about £400.
