Immerse yourself in a multi-dimensional audio experience with the HT-A9 Home Theater System. Unique 360 Spatial Sound Mapping technology calibrates sound to your room for an environment that seems to expand beyond the walls.
Our revolutionary 360 Spatial Sound Mapping technology creates up to twelve phantom speakers from just four real speakers. Here's how.
In this video, two sound professionals from Sony Pictures Post Production Services talk about their experience with the HT-A9 and how 360 Spatial Sound Mapping brings movies to life.
Surrounded on all sides by multiple phantom speakers within an optimized sound field, you’ll hear every flap of wing and gust of wind with incredible intensity. It’s like you and your living room are inside the movie.
Reduce clutter and enjoy a simple setup without a need for extra cables. HT-A9’s speakers wirelessly connect to the control box, allowing you to place them anywhere in the room. Sound Field Optimization allows you to have the speakers at different heights and distances and will measure the position of each speaker to create the best sound for your room.
Place the control box near the TV and link up via HDMI. The four speakers connect wirelessly to the control box so there’s no cables across your living space.
Activate Sound Field Optimization any time by performing Easy Setup from the home menu on the TV screen. The HT-A9 Home Theater System intelligently measures the distance between speakers and ceiling for smart and easy set up.
Our speakers are designed with leading-edge technologies to deliver the supreme sound quality and wide directivity required for 360 Spatial Sound Mapping.
The unique rectangular shape of these speakers maximizes the diaphragm area for richer bass. It also reduces driver excursion while maintaining sound pressure, resulting in less distortion and greater vocal clarity.
Support for 8K, 4K/120 passthrough, and Dolby Vision brings vivid visuals and quality sound to shows, movies, and fast paced video game play.

Using Edge-AI (Artificial Intelligence), DSEE Extreme™ (Digital Sound Enhancement Engine) upscales compressed digital music files in real time. Dynamically recognising instrumentation, musical genres, and individual elements of each song, such as vocals or interludes, it restores the high-range sound lost in compression for a richer, more complete listening experience.
Adding an optional subwoofer to your system to handle low frequencies allows the system to reproduce sounds with greater impact and power than before. Two models are available, designed to bring out deeper bass, more voice clarity and extra fidelity in everything you listen to.
Paired with BRAVIATM TVs, the HT-A9 brings you an immersive audio-visual experience with our best picture and sound quality. It’s the perfect soundbar for BRAVIA.

It fits perfectly against the wall with a flat rear surface. The light pearl grey color blends well with walls, shelves and other interior elements.
