Sony's premium HT-ST9 sound bar boasts Bluetooth headphone support


Just when we thought Sony's soundbars couldn't get any more expensive than the $1,299 HT-ST7, along comes the new HT-ST9 at $1,499.

The HT-ST9 will be available in the US in July, with pricing and availability for Australia and the UK as yet unannounced. The US price converts to around £1,000 or AU$1,930, but expect final prices to vary considerably.

Great sound, but very expensive


The soundbar has fantastic design and looks great in the living room. Note that you need at least a 55inch TV, as the soundbar is quite lengthy. The sound is very good, but it takes a lot of tweaking in order to find settings that are optimised for a)...

Excellent Sound


Having moved from a fairly old amplifier/surround speaker set up I was wary that I would experience a drop in audio quality/ performance by moving to a sound bar. How wrong was I!! This system is excellent. It sounds great at all volumes, has a very...

Performance so far is good


Only had this a couple of weeks and still playing with the features. This replaced a Sony surround system as needed a sound bar for the new Sony X85 tv. Use it all the time and with some of the films played sound is really good which seems to react to...
