Sony HT-Z9F Dolby Atmos Soundbar With Built-in Chromecast Launched in India, Priced at Rs. 59,990

Sony has launched a new soundbar in India. The device bears the model number HT-Z9F and is priced at Rs 59,990. For the price, you get the soundbar along with a subwoofer and remote control. The soundbar also supports rear surround speakers (sold separately) bearing the model number SA-Z9R priced at Rs 9,990. Those who pre-order the soundbar between July 1 and 8 will get the surround speakers at no extra cost. The soundbar supports audio formats like Dolby Atmos, DTS:X along with Sony’s own audio technologies including Vertical Surround Engine and S-Force Pro Front Surround Technology. Without the surround speakers, the soundbar has an output of 400W and with the surround speakers, it has an output of 500W. 

Speaking of connectivity options, the soundbar supports USB, Bluetooth 4.2, HDMI (eARC), 2 HDMI in (pass through), along with optical-in. The soundbar also supports WiFi and works with Alexa and Google Assistant speakers. The speaker itself weighs 3.1kg whereas the subwoofer weighs 8.1kg. The surround speakers weigh 1kg each. The HT-Z9F can also connect online and stream music using built-in Chromecast. 

Unlike the HT-ST5000 soundbar from Sony, which has upward firing speakers, the HT-Z9F uses Sony’s vertical surround engine to simulate a Dolby Atmos experience. How well this works is something we will comment on when we review the speaker. The remote control of the speaker has a 'Vertica S' button to simulate the Dolby Atmos experience from the speaker.

A good thing to note is that the speaker supports eARC, a new standard in audio technology. Do note that to make the most of eARC, your TV needs to support the same. 

The Sony HT-Z9F and SA-Z9R will be available across all Sony Centers, major electronic stores, and e-commerce portals in India. If you are looking to pick up the speaker then know that by pre-booking HT-Z9F from July 1 until 8, 2019, the rear surround speaker SA-Z9R will be available at no additional cost. The soundbar can be booked through any of the sales channels - Sony brand shops, major electronic stores, and e-commerce websites.
