”Sony’s A9 speaker system redefines accessible home cinema sound with an innovative, immersive and flexible solution.” ’What Hi-Fi?’ – 5 Star review.

Quality surround sound. Made easy

Consisting of four, wireless speakers and a compact control hub, the Sony HT-A9 makes surround sound easier than ever. Simply connect your TV, and one other AV source, to the control hub, place the wireless speakers around you, and enjoy immersive sound in minutes from unboxing.

Dolby Atmos and DTS:X compatible
Featuring up-firing speakers, each of the four surround speakers is compatible with Dolby Atmos and DTS:X formats. Up-firing speakers help create a more voluminous sound, with overhead effects – such as a helicopter – sounding more realistic than ever. Combined with an Atmos or DTS:X soundtrack, the 3D sound will have you ducking for cover.

Unique 360 Spatial Sound Mapping Technology, with ‘phantom’ speakers
Making the most of the Atmos/DTS:X compatibility, each speaker uses a built-in dual microphone to measure their position within the room. 360 Sound Mapping then creates up to 12 ‘phantom’ speakers, giving you an even more enveloping sound – without increasing the actual speaker count.

Optimised sound – in any room
Thanks to Sound Field Optimisation, you don’t need to rearrange your room for the best sound quality. Simply unbox, plug in and perform Easy Setup from the TV’s home menu. Perfect sound, straight out of the box.

Use your Sony TV as a centre speaker
For the best experience, pair with a compatible Sony BRAVIA TV and enjoy Acoustic Centre Sync. This uses the TV’s built-in speakers as the dialogue, or centre speaker, helping to firmly locate the sound to the picture.

Optional subwoofers for even greater bass power
Take the sound to a deeper dimension by adding an optional subwoofer. The optional SA-SW3 and SA-SW5 models connect seamlessly and, like the surround speakers, use a wireless connection. With power outputs of 200 watts and 300 watts, respectively, expect edge-of-seat cinema style thrills.

The latest gaming – made awesome
The HT-A9 is perfect for more than just movies. Compatible with 8K HDR and 4K 120fps pass-through, the system gets the best from the latest games, too.

Your music – at its best
With High-Resolution audio compatibility and 360 Reality Audio, your music could sound better than ever on the HT-A9 speaker system. Use Chromecast, Apple AirPlay 2 or Spotify Connect to easily access your favourite music streaming services, such as Apple Music, Amazon Music, Deezer, TIDAL and, of course, Spotify. The A9 also features Sony’s DSEE Extreme processing. DSEE Extreme (Digital Sound Enhancement Engine) upscales your existing music to near Hi-Res quality, squeezing out every last drop of sound.

Voice control
Compatible with both Google Assistant and Amazon Alexa, the HT-A9 seamlessly becomes part of your voice-controlled, home entertainment system.

Stylish Omnidirectional design
Rounded edges not only enhance the sound, by reducing harmful reflections, but also give the speaker system an unobtrusive, harmonious style. The light pearl grey colour blends with most decors, too.

Enjoy the thrill of cinema at home, without the hassle, with the Sony HT-A9.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great sound, build quality could be better My first impression of these speakers was formed from a visual standpoint as soon as I opened the box. I could see when removing the polystyrene that all the speakers have the same annoying feature on the top grills. When viewed from above, the top grill has a slight change in paint covering which is presumably from when the grills are dipped or hung to be sprayed. This is quite eye catching and frustrating for a relatively high end speaker. The sound is very good and has sufficient settings to enable an over the top cinema experience or dial it down to be a more relaxed sound for less intense viewing. I would recommend but do think the reoccurring imperfection could be designed out with a little more thought.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Brilliant absolutely Brilliant Wow,after some reviews I decided to buy Sony HT-A9 and that was the best move ever. Love to hear movies how they should be heard and this does just that after listening to Top Gun Maverick on the Sonos arc,which I thought was the best so far I listened to it on the Sony HT -A9 and I must say this is fantastic, heard more sounds and couldn't believe it was more immersive and incredible.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Overpriced for what it is Sounds great and not having to run audio cable everywhere is convenient but honestly it’s £800 more than it’s worth. If I’d been able to hear it in person first instead of having to buy online, I probably would have passed as the marketing doesn’t match the output sadly.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great sound at a decent price I bought them a few weeks ago. Also bought the SW5 subwoofer. Love the sound and also the fact that one can position then kind of randomly ok the room and calibrate then to still give a great experience. I had some issues with one of my speakers dropping out. It was standing right next to the router. Once I put some space between them the problem disappeared.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Sony HT-A9 This is my Second HT-A9 the first had connection problems dropouts and speakers losing connection. This was replaced by Richer Sounds with no problems at all with great courtesy from the advisor I spoke to. The second HT-A9 has only locked up twice so far freezing on “HELLO” on the main unit this was in the same night and after resetting so far has been fine, a note to anyone with a SkyQ UHD box the HT-A9 dose not work well for me with SkyQ sound issues on different channels and sound slow to start when you change channels. If you change to Freeview or Netflix (NOT ON THE SKY Q BOX) everything works fine so for me this proves it’s a SkyQ problem. Many thanks to the Richer Sounds team for all their help and I personally would not hesitate in recommending them.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Speakers Keep buffering I originally brought this in sep 2021 and for a whole year the system has buffered in one speaker. Have moved around the room tried assorts but nothing worked. Richer Sounds changed the speaker system back in Sep 2022 for me and same issue with the new speakers. Im giving them back and will buy from another well know brand. Sony have not got this quite right.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A genuine home theatre I’ve got the ht-a9 paired with a Sony a95k as the centre channel and an sw5 subwoofer and just wow! The sound quality is amazing. The height channels are very dependent on the content you’re watching so don’t expect to hear overhead audio all the time, but they definitely add to the experience. I’d almost forgotten about the height channels until I booted up avengers endgame and heard falcon whoosh overhead! They did take a bit of time to set up, mainly getting them to pair with the tv properly (I couldn’t get the a9 to enter standby with the tv at first), but after 20 minutes of tinkering I just switched everything off at the wall and waited 10 seconds, and ever since it’s been perfect! No connection problems, no audio drop outs (so far), it just works. The phantom centre is good, but I prefer using my a95k as the centre channel. The audio quality from the tv is on par with the a9, but I have my tv in the corner of the room so the tv as centre just does a better job of having the audio come from the right place. If your tv is in the middle of the room the phantom centre won’t be a problem. Only real negative is the power cords are very short! I’ve got plenty of extensions so it’s no problem for me but I could see that being an issue for some people. Overall though it sounds amazing, really easy to set up, and it’s just like being in a cinema!
