”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 5 out of 5 by from Great customer service! The team at the London Bridge branch are incredible. Not only did I get a great combo deal but their support throughout the long process has been great and swift. Dont bother with Curry's!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The sound is absolutely amazing I pre-ordered at the start of the year, but due to chip shortages it was a while before I got this but it was worth the wait. For me a tranditional sounder is too long, and doesn't fit underneath my TV due to it sitting flush on the stand so I made do with the TV sound. Now the Sony TV didn't sound bad using the screen as a speaker but this is next level. Surround effects are absolutely amazing and I get height sounds too. Is it better than a dedicated system? I can't really say, but I love the immersion. Note I have the SW5 wireless sub also so my impressions are with that. I can't say if the sound is still as good without it

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wireless surround sound at its best I order this back in October 2021 and it was finally delivered in April 2022. I must say it was worth the wait. After a few initial issues with the sound, which started to skip every now and again, I repositioned the speakers so that there is no interfenrce between the speakers and the control box and this seems to have worked. I find that I have to reset the RF on occasions but this is no trouble at all. I bought the HTA9 with the SW5 subwoofer which also works a treat. Together, they have made my experience of watching my TV all the more enjoyable and exactly how I wanted. I don't have space for an AV receiver and I wanted to avoid a load of wires, therefore this wireless system has worked out very well. I would definitely recommend.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sony HT-A9-wow! I have been waiting for this since October last year when I ordered it. A delay due to low production of the chips involved (not Richer Sounds fault). Well worth the wait. I could havegone for a wired system , of which there are many, but I wanted wireless due to the nature of my space which is like a barn conversion so didnt want ugly wires everywhere. This created limitations of choice but luckily this had not long been released andboy, am I glad I waited! Im a sound engineer with years of experience in develpoing film audio desks with Neve so was quite particular about audio quality and this has been a great choice. I got the smaller sub as I didnt want to knock the neighbours fillings out with a mega sub bass that travels and the surround space this system delivers is great. Only had it set up a few days and only tried a few movies thus far, have to say Im sold. The set up is super easy and the bonus of connection to alexa, spotify etc is great. Wait till you hear the 360 audio for music as it pops sound over your head and allaround (had to turn it down as it was super loud -sorry neighbours!). So far9 out of 10 only as I havent explored it fully and don't know what hidden depths there are in the settings. Richer Sounds staff Manchester were great-thanks guys for your regular communicationas to its progress.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from What a wonderful purchase. This replaced the Sony HT-G700, which for a Dolby Atmos soundbar was pretty sub-par. Such an easy setup and the sound is amazing. Sub woofer is a must have to go along with the four basic speakers.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Seriously good Setup only took about 20 minutes and 10 of those were putting the new rear stands together. All speakers connected fine including the sub. The auto calibration ran first time fine. The lovely demo after calibration sounded epic. I went through and changed some settings. Turned on auto volume and put voice on. Turned the rears down to 5 as they are right behind the sofa. Currently have the sub 0at 5 and have to say the SW5 does a great job and I've had an M&K MX350THX sub with dual 12 inch drivers. I've watched all my Atmos demos at least twice. Each time thinking "hell yes". Lots of height and depth. A real feeling of being in a sound bubble. The phantom center works brilliantly. So far it's not felt like the speech is not coming from the screen. Watched some stereo Mythbusters and it sounded great with voices coming from the screen. Watched San Andreas 4k and Jurassic Park DTS-X and loved them. So far it's great and I'd say if you love movies get one if you can. I've had a full Denon 7.1 THX system, Samsung K950 and then the Sennheiser Ambeo plus sub. This completely crushes them for the total immersion and theatrical feeling. With it's simple footprint it's just what I wanted for my lounge The biggest praise I can give it is that my wife who usual can't tell the difference between systems is impressed and noted how it really feels like you're at the cinema.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lives up to expections I received mine yesterday. I bought them because I was hoping Sony would bring out a new AV receiver to replace my STR-DH820. I had already bought a XR-65X90J. I was a little worried about losing my Centre speaker but the speech is clear and firmly centered on the screen. It even gives the impression of moving on the screen to the person speaking. The surround is a step up from my AV system. My front speakers were large Technics bookshelf speakers with 10 inch woofers. Again I was concerned that I would lose out on the bass but wanted to try the speakers before having to buy a Sub woofer. It is early days but so far it looks like there will be no need for us. I can only watch at high volumes when my wife is not around so ground shaking bass is not necessary. It is amazing to me how quickly you get used to the all around sound of Atmos sounds. I have to consciously listen for the overhead sounds and they don't disappoint. So far I am impressed and not found anything to disappoint me having paid such a high price. I am glad I didn't wait for the XR-65X95J just to get the Centre Channel from the TV. The setup is easy but did have to do it twice as the wireless didn't set to a channel to avoid interference and the sound was breaking up. A reset and second try at setup cured this. Overall happy and Richer Sounds service was great as usual. Wasn't expecting them until the end of the month so great surprise when they arrived yesterday.
