There are plenty of sound systems in the market, each with different features that are sure to meet your fancy. If you’re one of those people that prefer bigger audio systems, there are a lot of them. However, if you live in a small space, then smaller speakers might be just what you need. In terms of price ranges, there are also a lot of audio systems that could meet your desired budget. If you’re an audiophile with no qualms about spending a lot of money for the sake of achieving excellent sound quality, you might think about getting yourself the Sony HTST5 Premium Sound Bar.
The system consists of a handsome sound bar- wireless subwoofer combo, both encased in beautiful black exteriors. The sound bar measures an impressive 42 5/8” in length, 4” in height and 4 5/8” in depth. A punched metal-type speaker grille covers the entire front panel of the main system. Its compact features make it easy to place it on a table top or to mount it on the wall. The subwoofer measures 16 1/8” high, 9 5/8” wide and 14” deep and made of a smooth wood cabinet material.
This gem is simply packed full of specifications. One specification that audiophiles might enjoy would be the wireless streaming of their favorite music from their phones or tablets to the audio system by using Bluetooth wireless connectivity with Near Field Connectivity (NFC). Simply pair your device with the speaker system by touching their logos. You can also download the SongPal App on your mobile phone to take speaker control to the next level. You can adjust settings, initiate music playback, and control online streaming services—all through one app. Connectivity is not really a problem with this beauty. It has been fitted with multiple HDMI ports, plus 2 optical inputs and 1 coaxial input, thus you can install several media devices without displacing other connections.
This beauty is clearly designed to give you big sounds. This 7.1 channel system has been equipped with seven 2.4” mid-range speakers and dual ¾” tweeters for those clear, balanced sounds of middle and high frequencies. Add the 7” wireless woofer to the mix and you get a dynamic audio listening experience with full-bodied sounds. It also boasts of Dolby TrueHD sound and DTS HD Master Audio playback support for full-range spectrum of sounds, and in collaboration with the S-Force Front Surround Sound technology, this gem is able to reproduce sounds with life-like surround sound quality without any multiple speakers.
In a nutshell, despite the somewhat steep price range, this beauty certainly offers plenty of specifications that other systems cannot. So, if you’re a movie, music or gaming enthusiast with no problems with money, look no further than this gem of a system.
