Sony's new wireless TV sub and soundbars

31 Jan 2014 | Rasmus Larsen |

Sony wants better sound, so they have started making thaier TVs thicker again. Sony has also announced a new subwoofer that connects wirelessly to Sony TV as well as new soundbars and a “TV Base Speaker”.

Wireless TV subwoofer

Sony will launch three TV ranges in a so-called “wedge” design this spring. The TVs have been extended at the bottom to allow room for proper speakers. Another interesting move from Sony is the new wireless subwoofer that connects wirelessly to most of the 2014 TVs – a clever little idea that we wish was more widespread.

The wireless subwoofer is called SWF-BR100 and is an accessory to the 2014 TVs. You can place it anywhere in your living room as it will automatically connect to the TV and adjust its settings depending on the TV speakers. Besides that it just needs a power plug.

Sony has also introduced new soundbars called HT-CT370 and HT- CT770. They pack a 2.1 audio system and both come with wireless subwoofers. Sony says that the CT770 is capable of delivering 330W and the smaller CT370 is a 300W system.

The soundbars are both 5 cm deep and, and Sony imagines that they can sit in front of your TV on the TV bench or be mounted on a wall underneath the TV. They also support Bluetooth music playback from a smartphone or tablet.

Sony TV Base Speaker

Lastly, Sony has introduced a product in a new category that seems to be a trend in the TV industry. Companies cannot quite agree on a name, but Sony calls it a “TV Base Speaker”. It is a powerful 2.1 system that is designed to be placed underneath your TV stand. It delivers 170W and Sony says that it has a strengthened top plate, which prevents vibrations from making it to the TV screen.

The new audio products will launch this spring together with Sony’s 2013 TVs.
