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.

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 Incredible Sound I did a lot of AV research prior to buying this soundbar. I had 5.1 surround with Dolby True HD and DTS -MA. I wanted a genuine upgrade, from a medium sized soundbar with Atmos The ZF9 is absolutely incredible. I could argue that being able to switch between Sony's DSP Presets and Dolby's processing via the remote would be handier, but that is pretty much the only criticism. The sound is crisp, clear and well balanced. Object based sound tracks work, even although the height channels are virtual. It must be noted I have a low ceiling lounge(approx 3m or 9ft), so the sound bubble effect is genuinely noticeable. If you have a high ceilinged room the effect would be much less effective and other solutions would be required. I also purchased the rear speakers (which I believe are now discontinued/ very hard to get hold of). The rear speakers were essential to my set up, your set up is up to you.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good soundbar with decent quality sound Very good option if you have a budget. it's not the same as a high end cinema amp, but if you are after a soundbar that's adds volume dimension to movies and entertainment, you might consider this option. It fits nicely under most 55" TV's

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic sound bar I bought this sound bar from Richer Sounds in Eton. James was very helpful, he demonstrated a couple of others but I was blown away by the sound from this Sony. It arrived on time after contact from the carrier. I was unsure whether it would pair up well with my LG OLED TV but I needn't have worried. After a couple of problems initially, and advice from the branch it's working perfectly. Much better than the Orbit soundbar we were replacing. A very happy customer. Thanks Richer Sounds!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great surround system but check compatibility Great sounding system. Easy to install and set up. Just gutted I can't have the full Atmos experience as my TV only supports ARC and not eARC. Would give 5 stars but only deserves 4 as thw rear speakers aren't available any more

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good value Soundbar This replaces a Sonus Beam and for very little more money it provides a far superior sound (in my opinion). I have had difficulties getting it to work effectively with SkyQ but that also was the case with the Sonus. In the end I went for an optical connection which allows a single controller to deal with TV, Sky and soundbar for most purposes. The bar is slim and suits a 50" TV while the sub unit is easily hidden as it is not very location sensitive.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Soundbar for the price I have had this about a month now and it really makes a difference. I used to think the speaker on the TV was decent (Sony TV with Atmos speaker), but after having this it now doesn't sound the same. I like the fact you can turn the subwoofer off for watching normal TV, so sounds more like a normal TV sound, or turn the sub up for a true cinema feel. Although I can imagine rear speakers would make a bit of a difference, I think the surround sound is still good enough that it's not really worth the extra.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Quality and value Had to replace an older Sony 7.1 system which was dying (13 years old) so realistically didn’t expect the same sound quality from a 3.1 system. Very impressed with it now we have got used to the ‘different’ sound. Very controllable with several presets. You can hear the difference between them. Alexa controllable with Bluetooth and even Spotify. Easy to wall mount with supplied brackets. Simple. Quality. Great build. Fast delivery from Richer sounds. Good price too

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Nothing but problems with a Xbox series s and Ps5 Don't purchase this if you intend to connect a Xbox series s or PS5 into it,, I've had nothing but problems with the picture disappearing the only way to get it back is reboot the TV which is a Sony Bravia, I have tried 5 different 8k leads that are more than capable for this device.. Richer Sounds were great and sent me a replacement soundbar but it's exactly the same, you think the Sony would release a firmware update to sort the problem out

Rated 4 out of 5 by from good sound To replace a ht-z9000 with excellent sound but very poor vocals gets drowned out by movies music, this sound bar has a centre speaker which makes up for it, better vocally, only had a month still getting to grips with it there is a voice button to make louder but would have liked a feature the same as a amp the option to increase the volume more but then its only a bar I am happy with it any way so is the wife.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Atmos TV Gaming and Movies, hard to buy satellites Atmos, eARC, 3 front speakers with 1 woofer in a very competitive price. It is made in Malaysia. Satellites hard to come by. eARC (2ways) solves TV app sound out sync problem. Beside eARC port, there are 2 HDMI inputs. Don't follow the attached quick installation manual if your TV has eARC. Just connect TV eARC to this bar eARC. Reasonable sound quality and control functionalities, not shabby at all. Sony does put some efforts on the virtual sound stage and those sound category buttons on the remote. It is pleasant even for music and vocal. Nite button also useful, so your next door apartment neighbour won't be hit by bass so bad at nite hours. I listened to B&O Sound bar woofer(double the B&O bar price) , and Bose 700 with woofer (optional). Bose 700 with woofer (optional) maybe sounded better stronger and harder but without Atmos and priced at a different level since woofer sell separately.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great sound bar Great sound bar, easy to setup and use and certainly sounds better and louder than my previous home cinema system it replaced.
