SYDNEY, 9 January 2018 – This ultimate 4K HDR set up by Sony will make you feel like you are at the cinema
in your own home. The UBP-X700 produces a much wider range of colour, contrast and brightness making
the picture much closer to what you see in real life.
This feature of UBP-X700 will be made available via firmware update
Sony is also proud to extend its already well-established home theatre selection with the new AV Receiver,
the STR-DH790. Thanks to 5.1.2 Channel Dolby Atmos and DTS:X support, the receiver delivers a mighty
cinematic surround sound that adapts to you and your environment.
The SS-CSE Dolby Atmos enabled speakers provide home theatre aficionados with a truly cinematic threedimensional sound experience. The speakers produce an extraordinary sensation of height only found with
Dolby Atmos. The optimal engagement of sound will place any cinema viewer in the centre of the action by
creating a full audio atmosphere. The speakers provide cinema-worthy surround sound without the hassle of
ceiling mounting. The angled design of the SS-CSE up-firing speakers reflect sound off the ceiling to provide
a revolutionary multidimensional experience. The result offers compelling sound from above.
Pair up the Blu-ray™ Player and AV Receiver
The combination of the UBP-X700 and the STR-DH790 produces a new immersive viewing experience with
incredible surround sound. Optimising the way the HDR picture is delivered from your player to your TV screen,
the UBP-X700 will support HDR10 and Dolby Vision for ground-breaking detail, colour and brightness. The
STR-DH790 also has HDR10 and Dolby Vision compatibility.
The STR-DH790 supports Dolby Atmos and DTS:X so you can fill the room with realistic surround sound via
a 5.1.2 channel set up.
Movies and more
Watch whatever you fancy as the X700 gives you access to a world of 4K streaming services from Netflix™ to
YouTube™. This 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray Player also supports a wide variety of video and music formats including
MP4, DSD and FLAC.
Easy setup
Designed with an average sized living room in mind, the STR-DH790 makes it easy to figure out your speaker
setup thanks to its advanced D.C.A.C (Digital Cinema Auto Calibration), an automatic speaker setup system.
With the use of a provided plug-in microphone, the advanced D.C.A.C uses a series of test tones to determine
the proper speaker levels, based on the detected placement of speakers in relation to the acoustic properties
of your room.
Aesthetically pleasing design of the SS-CSE speakers
The SS-CSE speakers’ compact design allows users to display them according to their entertainment needs
as they can be simply placed on top of any floor standing or bookshelf speaker. If mounting is preferred, the
speakers can easily be secured to the wall and used as surround speakers.
Connectivity bringing sound to life
The SS-CSE is the perfect match for the newly announced Sony STR-DH790 7.2ch 4K HDR AV Receiver that
supports Dolby Atmos and DTS:X™. For fans of the STR-DN1080 7.2 ch. Dolby Atmos Wi-Fi Network AV
Receiver, the SS-CSE speaker pairs seamlessly with the powerhouse receiver to envelop you in a new level
of sound performance. The 178mm width x 145mm height (with grill) x 180mm depth (without speaker terminal)
SS-CSE features: rich acoustics with a strong MDF cabinet; crisp audio with 10cm full range speaker system
including a Mica Reinforced Cellular cone; Maximum Input Power of 100W per channel, and 70Hz-32kHz
frequency range.
