Sony Electronics’ new HT-A5000 soundbar supports Dolby Atmos and DTS:X – Michael Brown

Sony Electronics announced an exciting new 5.1.2-channel soundbar today. The HT-A5000 supports both Dolby Atmos and DTS:X, and it also features two of Sony’s own home-theater sound technologies: Vertical Surround Engine technology, to position sounds in a vertical space, and S-Force Pro Front Surround, to present a wider horizontal sound field.

The HT-A5000 is outfitted with built-in subwoofers and a pair of up-firing drivers that can bounce the height cues in immersive soundtracks off the ceiling to deliver the sensation of having speakers mounted over the viewing area. Dual beam tweeters bounce audio off the walls to the left and right of the speaker to further expand the surround-sound effect.
