Now you can enjoy everything you watch in maximum 7.1.2ch audio. Our advanced digital signal processing converts even stereo audio to cinematic surround with just the push of a button on the remote.
Sound modes to match your entertainment
Five different sound modes enhance your entertainment experience. Go deeper into the movies with Theater mode, and enhance your gameplay thanks to Game mode created by PlayStation developers. Sports mode fine-tunes ambient crowd noise so you can feel the pitch-side action, while Music mode lets you hear the detail in every song. News mode is designed for clear dialog.
