Sony HT-A8000 BRAVIA Theater Bar 8 with Dolby Atmos (Black)

The Sony HT-A8000 BRAVIA Theater Bar 8 with Dolby Atmos is a soundbar with top features like 360 Spatial Sound Mapping with 11 speaker units and Sound Field Optimization. Enjoy unconventional surround sound that blends physical and phantom speakers to deliver a sonic experience like no other. The Sony BRAVIA Theatre Bar 8 creates a wider surround sound field for outstanding immersion.
Spatial Sound Mapping
The HT-A8000 features 360 Spatial Sound Mapping technology that creates 5 phantom speakers in front of you that reflect sound off the ceiling and walls to engulf you in a theatre-like experience at home. It is surprising to realize that a single soundbar is capable of such energy. For an immersive experience, the phantom speakers use the 360 Spatial Sound Mapping technology offering a wide coverage virtual surround sound. You can make the most of spatial sound mapping by adding a set of optional wireless rear speakers so that the Bar 8 can create up to 11 phantom speakers to indulge you in a truly authentic cinematic joy ride.
Rich Sound via Wireless Subwoofers and Rear Speakers
Combine Sony’s optional wireless rear speakers and optional subwoofer to get powerful surround sound.
IMAX Enhanced Certification
The Sony BRAVIA Theatre Bar 8 supports industry-standard formats including Dolby Atmos and DTS:X along with IMAX Enhanced certification.
Stereo Sound
The upmixer on the Sony BRAVIA Theatre Bar 8 can deliver surround sound from stereo content using its unique innovative algorithm extracts. The AI Sound Separation processing detects the voice of a human to give it more clarity.
Hear from Anywhere
It does not matter where you are seated or what the room acoustics look like, the Theatre Bar 8 features Sound Field Optimization that makes you feel like you are in a movie theater, regardless of the place of your seat. This technology even calibrates sound based on speaker position, and considers your room’s acoustic for an enhanced experience. Since Sound Field Optimization calibrates sound based on the speaker’s location, it enables the speaker to fill gaps to offer an elevated surround sound. The advanced signal processing technique of the Bar 8 enables the Sound Field Optimization feature to diagnose your room's acoustic characteristics before overwriting them with a movie theatre-like acoustic.
Innovative Design with 2-Way Speaker
The Sony BRAVIA Theatre Bar 8 does not disappoint when it comes to signal processing. The new 2-way speaker features added tweeters for front and center to produce wider surround sound with accurate sound images.
Built-in Quad Woofers and Passive Radiators
The built-in quad woofers and passive radiators generate deep, resonant bass associated with large speakers. The side speakers and beam tweeters fill up the living space with wide directional sound while the tweeters reflect directional high-frequency sound off the walls.
Overhead Sound
Enjoy overhead surround sound via the up-firing speakers reflecting sound off the ceiling for immersive overhead audio that creates an atmospheric sound.
X-Balanced Speaker Unit
The rectangular-shaped speakers maximize the diaphragm area for an authentic punchy bass that also reduces driver excursion to maintain the sound pressure, assuring you minimized distortion and greater vocal clarity.
When you pair BRAVIA Theatre Bar 8 with a BRAVIA TV, you can be rest assured to bring the emotion and excitement of a movie theatre to the comfort of your home.
Integrated System
The Acoustic Center Sync enables the Bar 8 to use your compatible BRAVIA as a center speaker. When sound comes from the screen, it is adjusted as part of an integrated speaker system.
Voice Zoom 3 Powered by AI Machine Learning
Say goodbye to muffled voices. Combined with compatible BRAVIA, the new Voice Zoom 3 powered by AI machine learning of the BRAVIA Bar 8 recognizes human voices. It then amplifies or reduces their volume so that even the faintest of dialogues sound clear and precise.
Easy Control with BRAVIA
Control the surround sound easily with your BRAVIA TV remote since the sound settings automatically appear on the BRAVIA Quick Settings menu. This allows for easy control of features, like Sound Field and volume.
HDMI Capability
With the HDMI 2.1 capability, the Sony BRAVIA Theatre Bar 8 ensures that you experience original picture quality up to 8K HDR.
Immersive Gaming
With the Sony HT-A8000, lose yourself in overhead sound with the PlayStation 5 console. It has optimized picture settings by Auto HDR Tone Mapping and Auto Genre Picture Mode, which works when connected to compatible BRAVIA TVs and PS5 consoles. It also supports VRR, ALLM, and SBTM.
