The Sony HT-ZF9 raises the bar for immersive Dolby Atmos sound in a convenient package.

3.1 channel system with Dolby Atmos and DTS:X compatibility

Using Sony’s Vertical Surround Engine and just three front speaker drivers, the Sony HT-ZF9 reproduces ‘vertical’ audio to give truly uplifting sound! Compatible with both Dolby Atmos and DTS:X formats, this Sony soundbar gives incredibly immersive sound from a compact unit. Because this speaker doesn’t fire sound directly upwards, it doesn’t matter how high or what shape your ceiling is, making it truly room-friendly.

Upscale to 7.1.2 for ‘wrap around’ sound
Thanks to its sophisticated processing, upward firing speakers and separate subwoofer, the Sony HT-ZF9 gives a totally immersive sound – all from just two boxes. At the touch of a button, Sony’s advanced signal processing converts any audio signal into a pseudo 7.1.2 channel signal – totally surrounding you.

Dedicated, wireless subwoofer to focus on the bass
A separate subwoofer frees up the soundbar from the compromise of doing two jobs at once. Instead, it remains dedicated to the task of producing a holographic, 3D sound, leaving the subwoofer free to provide deep, cinema-like bass. What's more, with it being a wireless subwoofer you're free to position it anywhere within the room without the hassle of a connection wire between it and the soundbar.

Optional wireless surround
For even greater sonic thrills optional wireless speakers are available. These sync with the soundbar to give you the true sensation of cinema sound.

Sound modes tailored to your viewing
No fewer than five tailored sound modes optimise the audio to whatever you’re watching. Cinema mode maximises the thrills and spills from action movies. Developed by PlayStation, Game studio mode gets the most from gaming. Sports mode makes you feel like you’re ‘there’ and part of the crowd while news mode is designed for the clearest dialogue. For the most detailed sound, switch to Music mode.

Hi-Res sound and DSEE HX enhancement
Compatibility with Hi-Res sound gives you ‘better than CD sound’ from high resolution music files. Stream over Wi-Fi or connect via USB and enjoy the highest sound quality from your DSD, FLAC and WAV files. DSEE HX Digital Sound Enhancement Engine upscales your existing music to near Hi-Res quality, squeezing out every last drop of sound.

Google Chromecast built-in
Chromecast lets you stream music, podcasts and audio apps, including Google Play, at the touch of a button. Having it built-in saves the battery life on your phone as the phone's Bluetooth transmission system isn't used for this purpose. Being able to stream straight from the cloud also gives the best audio quality.

Stream your music with wireless Bluetooth and Wi-Fi
More than just a boost for your TV sound, the Sony HT-ZF9 soundbar also makes a handy speaker for your music. Pair with your smartphone, tablet or computer and you'll be able to stream all your stored music and favourite streaming services such as Spotify, Deezer and Apple Music. Networking is further enhanced by Wi-Fi connectivity. As well as Chromecast this gives access to Google Assistant, Spotify Connect and DLNA streaming (Spotify and DLNA via future firmware update).

HDR10, Dolby Vision and HLG compatible HDMI interface
Fitted with two HDMI inputs and one output, the HTZF9 is ideal for connecting a UHD Blu-ray player and games console or UHD TV streamer. Better still, the HDMI sockets are compatible with HDR10, Dolby Vision and HLG (Hybrid Log Gamma) formats, meaning that the latest UHD formats are all covered. Other inputs include an optical digital input, USB and 3.5mm mini-jack for your music sources.

Take your listening experience to new heights, with the Sony HT-ZF9.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Cinema sound at home Clear and vibrant sound! Multiple settings for different styles ie music,cinema,voice. Useful screen on bar. Not the prettiest but cannot fault the product. Very happy

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Leaps and bounds better than the competition Tried this in a local store and it was noticeably better than anything else at the same price, sound is rich and balanced with good punchy bass and the virtual surround is very convincing

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Jagged speech I bought this (Sony's top end) sound bar to go with Sony's 55XH9505 Hi end TV. It is connected via the ARC HDMI sockets on both devices and TV speaker are set to OFF (Audio system speakers enabled) The sound bar can certainly pump out a lot of volume with depth, but speech from regular TV channels, in particular like the News or Game shows, is very rough, jagged and prickly. Using the Voice option makes it worse. In TV costume dramas the speech is marginally better, but this impediment detracts heavily from getting engrossed in a program. If there were a EQ available, perhaps some of the speech high frequencies could be reduced, but that may have a detrimental effect on other sounds All of the many sound modes, effects and compatibilities, on this device, fade into irrelevance when trying to just improve the speech. This isn't a cheap sound bar, and it's very disappointing

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Sound I bought this at the same as a Sony TV and the total package is excellent quality and we are very pleased with the purchase.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not without its issues? I have had this Soundbar and optional rear speakers for just over a week now. I have only watched one Blu-ray with it so far and the 5.1 sound was impressive but have not detected much if any vertical effect. Perhaps the room is too big for that. The big niggle is that the wireless sub tends to drop out intermittently. Tried the RF fix found on the Sony website but the issue persists. A couple of more things to try and if I can’t suss it out, I will contact RS for advice.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Great sound when it works! This is the second one of these I have bought, the first being two years ago, it is already displaying the same problem of sound to the rear surround speakers cutting out, as the first one which is really annoying as this is a quality unit and sounds superb when it works properly.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Features I am extremely pleased with the quality of the Soundbar, the sound is amazing. I can hear very clearly the speech on movies now, using the cinema setting, which in the past have been drowned by background music. T.v. is good in standard, the depth of sound is superb in all features. would definitely recommend.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fully met my expectations At the time of writing this I have had the sound bar and rear speakers SA-Z9R for 10 days now and it has more than fulfilled my requirements for decent TV sound with the rear speakers giving me a room full experience. When the units are fully powered off they reconnect seamlessly when the mains power is restored. I have a full music library on my IPhone that I can can now play via the unit easily with Bluetooth with very little initial set up. Also I can ask she who must not be named to play radio stations from my echo dot , again easy set up. Overall I am very pleased with set up so far and would certainly recommend. Lastly the unit blends beautifully with my Sony TV and makes a neat tidy combo see attached photo
