(Malaysia, 07 January 2014) – Sony today introduced four new wireless speaker and audio systems to make listening to your music, easier and more pleasurable wherever you are. Boasting a wealth of wireless connectivity options, you can access your music simply wherever it is stored and then enjoy the beautiful acoustics from the new models, all packaged in the new stunning “Definitive Outline” design concept.

 

The new wireless speaker and audio systems deliver powerful sound, making them the focal point of any living space. Developed in collaboration with Sony Music, the new wireless systems are explicitly tuned for balanced equalisation and richness of sound, reflecting today’s music trends. Bass-rich thumping tunes are brought to life via the sub-woofer in the premium 2.1ch speaker system[1], which is achieved while maintaining the tone balance for a truly accurate, high-quality audio experience. Exceptional wireless listening is supported by aptX – specifically for Bluetooth® audio, a technology that matches the audio performance of CD players and wired speakers.

 

Designed for today’s digital lifestyles, the new systems let you enjoy music with a multitude of connectivity and streaming options. If you’ve got an NFC-enabled smartphone or tablet, simply touch the top of the main unit for one-touch listening of your songs. A Bluetooth® connection is made automatically and the music on your smartphone or tablet will boom out straightaway into your living room for everyone to hear. In selected models, simple wireless music streaming is supported through on-board Wi-Fi[2] and Bluetooth®. It is easy to access and use online music and internet radio services like Music Unlimited, Spotify®, and TuneIn Radio directly with no PC required. The SongPal™ app functionality allows easy and intuitive control of your compatible Sony audio devices while Apple AirPlay® lets you easily enjoy music stored on your iPad or iPhone. For added convenience, all speakers offer a built-in USB charging port as well as an auxiliary input to play music directly from nearly any device with an audio output.

 

SRS-X9 Wireless Speaker System

The new wireless speaker and audio systems is headed by the premium sound SRS-X9 Wi-Fi model, which is the first wireless speaker in the industry that supports High-Resolution Audio playback capability. Sony’s advanced Digital Sound Enhancement Engine (DSEE HX™)[3] refines and restores the audio signal, re-creating subtle high-frequency harmonics that are typically lost in heavily compressed MP3 and AAC files. With DSEE HX™, you’ll enjoy High-Resolution Audio that delivers the detailed sound quality as the artist intended. From the bi-amped subwoofer and dual passive radiators, the premium 2.1 channel system delivers powerful, full-range audio with a good tone balance and a rich, precise bass. The eight-channel S-Master HX™ Audio Amplifier[4] deliver an impressive 154W of music output power, and by combining with ClearAudio+™[5], Sony’s unique technology for enhancing bass, it delivers a rich, high-quality listening experience.

 

SRS-X7 Wireless Speaker System

Equally attractive in its modern design but more compact than the SRS-X9, the SRS-X7 delivers a room-filling 32W total output power. It is a high-quality wireless speaker with Wi-Fi and Bluetooth® which shares many of the audio features of its larger sibling, including aptX coding technology, DSEE - Digital sound enhancement, ClearAudio+™ and S-Master Digital Amplifier. The built-in rechargeable battery offers up to six hours of play time, enabling your music to follow you wherever you go.

 

SRS-X5 Wireless Speaker System

Ideal for indoor as well as outdoor use, the SRS-X5 is a high-quality Bluetooth® portable speaker that features a built-in rechargeable battery packed with up to eight hours play time, perfect for taking it out and about or for holidays. The SRS-X5 offers 20W of powerful audio with a good tone balance and a strong bass. As with the complete new wireless speaker and audio systems line-up, this high audio quality for wireless audio streaming is assured by different technologies including aptX codec, ClearAudio+™ and S-Master Digital technology that deliver beautiful refined sounds. Additionally, the SRS-X5 features a built-in hands-free speaker-phone so you can have a hands-free conversation without losing your place on your playlist.

 

The new specially designed case for the wireless speaker makes carrying it from place to place easier than ever. The hard case for the SRS-X5 (also available for the SRS-X7) has a foldable design which matches stunning design of the speakers and shields them from knocks and scuffs. 

 

The new SRS-X5, SRS-X7 and SRS-X9 Wireless Speaker Systems from Sony will be available in Malaysia soon.
