Sony has launched a range of new products for the modern home including the latest Bravia 4K Ultra HD TVs and impressive audio systems to hear your music how and where you want in high quality.
The new flagship Bravia TVs – the X9000C and X9100C – have a head-turning ultra thin design – the thinnest Sony has ever produced.
At its thinnest point these new TVs are even thinner than your smartphone.
Below the surface, the new Sony 4K TVs include the new X1 processor that can deliver enhanced clarity, colour and contrast.
And when combined with the 4K X-Reality Pro and the Triluminos display, the result is the best possible image quality.
But the newest addition to the Sony Bravia line-up is the latest Android TV operating system which makes it even easier to stream video and music as well as download games.
And in the same way you’ve use Google on your smartphone, Bravia users can also make voice searches and tap into features like Google Cast to stream content from mobile devices to the TV.
The X9100C 4K UHD TV has a 75-inch screen while the X9000C will be available in 55-inch and 65-inch.
These TVs will be available in August and pricing will be announced then.
4K Bravia models with powerful front facing speakers, woofers and tweeters include the X9300C (65-inch, $6,999) and the X9400C (75-inch, $11,999).
There are other 4K Bravia TV’s in the mid-range that range in sizes from 49-inch (X8300C, $2,299) all the way up to 55-inch, 65-inch and 75-inch (X8500C series – $3,299, $4,999 and $7,299 respectively).
Customers who want to stick with full high definition still have plenty of choices with Bravia and the W850C series in 65-inch ($3,299) and 75-inch ($5,699) along with the W800C series in 43-inch ($1,399), 50-inch ($1,799), 55-inch ($2,099) and 65-inch ($3,299).
These full HD models still have a slim design and include the X Reality Pro processor and the Android TV operating system.
On the audio front Sony has announced a wide line-up of products to allow customers to enjoy their music around their home in a number of ways.
These include wireless speakers, soundbars and AV (audio/video) receivers that support Hi-Res audio.
Sony’s new wireless speakers give users high quality audio anywhere in their home.
Onboard they have Bluetooth, wi-fi and NFC (near field communication) for instant pairing and Google Cast.
They are powered through Sony’s new SongPal app that gives you access to your own music and your favourite subscription audio streaming services.
At the top of the line the SRS-X99 ($899) features Hi-Res Audio with 154W of power, 2.1 channel and a stylish design.
The SRS-X88 ($599) has the same capabilities as the SRS-X99 but in a smaller form factor and with 90W of power output.
The SRS-X77 ($499) is the portable version of the wireless speakers so you can take it anywhere.
If you want to enhance the audio quality of your television the Sony HT-NT3 ($899) soundbar can certainly do the job.
The device supports 4K content via HDCP 2.2 and also has Google Cast, Spotify Connect and wireless capabilities.
The 2.1 channel premium sound bar also includes a wireless subwoofer.
Sony has also released the HT-XT3 ($799) which is a sound base placed beneath any Sony Bravia up to 65-inches in size.
This space-saving design offers a pristine Hi-Res audio experience and 11cm subwoofer units.
Sony’s 7.2 channel amplifiers – STR-DN1060 and ($1,299) and STR-DN860 ($1,099) – feature Pure Direct mode to keep the audio path clean and support 4K content with HDCP 2.2plus smartphone connectivity.
They also have built-in wi-fi connectivity, AirPlay, Bluetooth along with Google Cast and Spotify Connect so they can also be part of your home’s wireless audio set-up.
