Sleek and modular, the Sony Portable Theater System HT-AX7 features 360 Spatial Sound Mapping technology capable of creating multiple phantom speakers at the front, rear, as well as overhead to envelope you in a bubble-like sphere. Sony’s upmixer algorithm transforms stereo into three-dimensional surround sound without any additional hardware.
Upmixer basically analyzes sound in real-time and separates individual sound objects, redistributing them to create a more immersive listening experience. Users can activate the sound-field effect to experience a surround sound-like effect with 2-channel content. On a full charge, you can expect up to 30-hours of continuous use, or a simple 10-minute charge for 2.5-hours of play. Available for pre-order now direct from Sony, priced at $499.99 USD.
The HT-AX7’s wireless, sleek and versatile design blends seamlessly with interior decor for a stylish and cohesive look. The lightweight design of the detachable rear speakers combined with the one-handed portability of the unit can be conveniently placed throughout the home,” said the company in a press release.
