Earlier today Sony announced the release of three new home audio products: the HT-CT350 and HT-CT150 3.1 sound bars, as well as the HT-SF470 5.1 surround sound system. All the new models feature 3D pass-through and standby pass-through for audio and video devices connected via HDMI. As with many Sony products, these new systems are designed to integrate with Sony’s BRAVIA televisions and Blu-ray players.
The HT-CT150 is a 340 watt sound bar that comes with a bracket that attaches to Sony’s 2010 32-inch BRAVIA HDTVs. The HT-CT350 is a similar 400 watt system designed to match 40-inch or larger TVs. The top of the line HT-SF470 is a 1000 watt 5.1 system that features floor standing front and rear speakers, S-Air wireless technology with wireless multi-room capabilities, an HDMI repeater and audio return channel, 3 HDMI inputs, BRAVIA Sync, an optional iPod cradle, and digital cinema auto calibration for simple setup.
The HT-CT150 and HT-CT350 will be available this may for $300 and $400 respectively at Sony Style stores or online at www.sonystyle.com. The HT-SF470 system will be available in June for $550.
