2.1 channel system brings out the best in your movies
Feel the full force of every movie soundtrack with this 2.1 channel sound bar. The two drivers have been carefully engineered to deliver a balanced audio response across all frequencies, while a wireless subwoofer adds more body to your bass – so every explosion and action sequence hits harder than ever before.
S-Master digital amplifier: true sonic purity
Enjoy the best of digital audio with the S-Master digital amplifier. Using a simplified, full digital signal path, the S-Master amplifier reproduces digital audio signals without the multiple analogue stages required by conventional amplifiers. The result is not just more power, but significantly less distortion caused by heat build-up.
Cinematic S-Force PRO Front Surround
An immersive virtual surround sound experience. S-Force PRO Front Surround mimics the way the brain correlates sound sources to create proper volume, time lag, and sound wave spectrum – using only left and right speaker channels. By naturally emulating three-dimensional sound fields, you’ll be able to enjoy rich, high-fidelity audio across a wider listening area.
ClearAudio+ enriches your music
Unique to Sony, ClearAudio+ automatically adjusts sound settings for an enriching listening experience. By bringing together expertise in digital signal processing technologies, ClearAudio+ is able to optimise audio formats to deliver a consistently clear, high-quality sound, whatever music you’re into.
Wireless subwoofer for flexible setup
Add impact to movies with rich, powerful bass. Position the 38cm (15”) wireless subwoofer anywhere in the room to enjoy rich, resounding bass with fine low-end detail thanks to a bass-reflex port. The compact, stylish black unit blends in with any décor.
Unite your music with SongPal
Download SongPal for your smartphone or tablet and take control of your music collection. Simply connect over Bluetooth® or Wi-Fi and you’ll have seamless access to all your favourite tracks, whether they’re stored on your PC, server, or favourite online music service. The app can also be used to customise sound settings to ensure great, balanced audio.
Connect to your home network with DLNA
Digital Living Network Alliance (DLNA) is an industry-wide standard for sharing data over a home network. This makes it easier to stream and transfer your favourite music, films, and pictures between your DLNA-supported devices — including TVs, PCs, portable servers, and gaming consoles.
DSEE restores detail to your digital music
Boost the quality of your compressed music files. When an original music source is compressed, it loses the high frequency elements that add detail and richness to your favourite tracks. The Digital Sound Enhancement Engine (DSEE) faithfully restores these to produce high quality sound that’s closer to the original recording.
One-touch listening to play music instantly
NFC (Near Field Communication) technology removes the need for wired connections and complex set-up sequences. Simply touch your NFC-enabled smartphone or other device to the on-body N-mark and start your music. No NFC? No problem. You can also pair the devices manually in Bluetooth® settings.
Set your music free with Multi-room listening
Fill your home with the sound of your favourite tracks, thanks to Multi-room listening. Use the SongPal app to group selected Sony sound bars and speakers together, then stream music from a PC or your home network in multiple rooms throughout your home. It’s the perfect way to enjoy your favourite songs without being tied to one room.
The simple way to send music to your speakers
Chromecast built-in lets you stream your favourite music apps from your personal device to your speakers. Simply tap the Cast button in a music app on your Android phone or tablet, iPhone, iPad, Mac®, Windows laptop or Chromebook and select a speaker or group of speakers to get started.
Compatible with HDCP 2.2 Copy Protection
HDCP (High-bandwidth Digital Content Protection) is the latest generation of copy protection. Designed primarily for Ultra HD 4K devices, it employs advanced encryption techniques to create a secure connection between source and display, preventing the unlicensed copying of copyrighted content.
Higher quality wireless audio streaming
LDAC transmits approximately three times more data (at the maximum transfer rate: 990 kbps) than conventional Bluetooth audio, for a superior wireless listening experience
Bluetooth streaming for personal listening
Stream audio directly from the sound bar to your headphones via Bluetooth for convenient wireless listening. Compatible with high-quality LDAC and AAC codecs, the HT-CT790 is designed for personal viewing, so you can put your headphones on to enjoy a movie on the big screen without disturbing anyone.
High Dynamic Range (HDR)
By supporting High Dynamic Range (HDR) signal pass-through, you can enjoy the incredible jump in image contrast and brightness it brings - and the additional shadow and highlights further enhance picture detail and brings colours to life.
4K pass-through for 4K content
Maintain 4K quality from source to screen. The 4K pass-through feature allows 4K data to 'pass through' and be displayed on a 4K TV or projector, without compromising image quality. Giving you the pure 4K experience makes this sound bar the perfect partner for 4K-capable TVs and players, and a solid cornerstone for your home entertainment system for the future.
