Sony unveiled three new systems designed to give room-filling audio without filling the room with audio equipment. The new Sony BDV-470SS, HT-AF5 and HT-AS5 have 3D pass-through on HDMI, and all feature 1000W of S-Master digital amplification hidden away in their compact subwoofers, which also act as the control center for the systems.

The Sony BDV-470SS system combines the HT-AS5 with the BDP-S470 3D Blu-ray player.

The Sony HT-AS5 hides away its 1000W S-Master amplification in its subwoofer unit, which also contains all the audio processing for the system as well as an FM RDS/AM radio tuner. That just leaves four compact speakers on show, while Auto Calibration makes sure set-up is as accurate as possible, while the Digital Cinema Sound processing delivers the big screen sound experience.

The Sony HT-AF5 has all the same features as the HT-AS5, but with a pair of taller speakers for the front left and right channels, giving a bigger sound more suited to larger rooms. The speakers can be used wall-mounted or on the floorstands supplied.

All three systems will be available in June according to Sony Europe.
