Audio products line-up for 2017 from Sony, features an advanced, Dolby Atmos/DTS:X compatible, audio/video receiver and two new sound bars, the flagship HT-ST5000 and compact HT-MT300 models.
According to the press release, the STR-DN1080 Hi-Fi AV Receiver offers improved sound quality, flexible speaker solutions, and support for the latest audio formats such as Dolby Atmos and DTS:X. In combination with Sony's "Phantom Surround Back" technology, consumers can enjoy 7.1.2 channel surround effects even if a 5.1.2 channel speaker system is a better fit for their space. The new amp includes Sony's latest sound field compensation technology, DCAC EX, which balances output to closely simulate sound as would be produced by optimally positioned and angled speakers, resulting with the entire sound field seamlessly integrated for correct surround sound.
The STR-DN1080 features six HDMI inputs and two outputs that provide full HDCP 2.2 compliance and supports the latest 4K 60P 4:4:4 Ultra HD content. It can also distribute both 4K video and multichannel audio simultaneously to two different zones. The STR-DN1080 is also compatible with the new BT.2020 wide color gamut broadcast standard for HDR content, and supports High-Resolution Audio including DSD native playback and is equipped with USB, Bluetooth, Google Assistant, Spotify Connect and Wireless Multi-Room capabilities.
The HT-ST5000 is Sony's new flagship 7.1.2ch 800W sound bar featuring Dolby Atmos, Hi-Res audio and twelve advanced speakers with a sleek, stylish design. The ST5000 utilizes separate drivers to reproduce a full range of sound that supports High-Resolution audio playback.
Connectivity includes three HDMI inputs, one HDMI ARC output, a USB port, Bluetooth/NFC, as well as digital, optical and analog inputs. The ST5000 supports 4K and High Dynamic Range (HDR) content via HDMI with HDCP 2.2 support and, also, works with Google Home.
Last but not least, the HT-MT300 is a compact sound bar which features the S-Force PRO Front Surround technology, placing the listener right in the heart of the movies by emulating theater-style surround sound. There is also support for Bluetooth/NFC as well as the ability to change settings and control playback from a smartphone. A USB port in the back allows connection of USB devices for easy playback.
