Sony - HT-A9 7.1 Channel High Performance Home Theater System - Light Gray


About the Sony HT-A9


Fill your room with high-quality sound

Sony's unique HT-A9 offers an easy way to get exciting surround sound with enveloping overhead effects. This powered, multi-speaker sound system offers support for Dolby Atmos and DTS:X for an expansive, cinematic soundstage with no need for an A/V receiver.


Each of the system's four speakers has a front-firing woofer, soft dome tweeter, and up-firing driver for overhead effects. They work together with Sony's 360 Spatial Sound Mapping, simulating up to 12 "phantom speakers" to make you feel like the sound is coming from every direction. Track the squealing wheels of a car as it zips from one end of the room to the other or feel the whoop-whoop of a helicopter as it hovers above.

Easy, flexible setup

Getting started is easy. Hook the control box up to your TV with the included HDMI cable. The speakers connect to the box wirelessly, so you won't need to worry about running speaker wire across your floor. And the system's sound mapping technology adjusts for both the shape of your room and the configuration of your speakers. This gives you the freedom to place them almost anywhere with access to AC power.

Built to play nice with BRAVIA TVs

The HT-A9 was made to pair up well with Sony BRAVIA TVs for easy control of the sound system's settings and volume with the TV's remote. Some BRAVIA TVs can even operate as the center channel in your sound system so dialogue comes right from the screen. Just connect the "S-center out" on the HT-A9's control box to the "S-center speaker in" on your compatible TV using the stereo mini cable included in the box.

Streaming music options aplenty

The HT-A9 comes with several built-in options for playing your music and other content wirelessly. There's Bluetooth built-in for mobile devices, plus Wi-Fi streaming for playing files on your home network. Apple AirPlay 2 makes it super-easy to play music and more from iOS® devices. Android™ fan? No problem. This system also streams content through Chromecast built-in, via a wide range of compatible apps. 

You can even control the HT-A9 and make song selections using a Google Assistant or Amazon Alexa voice controller (sold separately).

Connect with HDMI

The control box's HDMI 2.1 connection allows 8K video passthrough or 4K at a super-sharp 120Hz refresh rate. The system's video passthrough also supports HDR (High Dynamic Range) formats like Dolby Vision, so you'll be able to maintain a high-contrast Ultra HD picture from your Blu-ray player or video game console through to your TV. With eARC (enhanced Audio Return Channel), you can also receive uncompressed audio signals — including Dolby Atmos — from an eARC-equipped TV.

Enjoy high-res

If you have digital audio files stashed on your phone, you can play them on the HT-A9, and even upscale them with DSEE Extreme™ (Digital Sound Enhancement Engine). This lets you enjoy better sound with compressed formats like MP3.

Pump up your bass

Get more bass impact when you add an optional 200-watt SA-SW3 or 300-watt SA-SW5 powered subwoofer (sold separately). The HT-A9 system was designed to be complemented by these subs and they connect wirelessly for easy placement and setup.
