Sony Electronics unveiled the Sound Wall RHT-S10 home theater stand with an included surround sound system. The Sound Wall includes Sony's first 5.1 channel surround sound system to offer built-in speakers, an amplifier and a subwoofer in one slim speaker package. The sound system is attached to a free-standing wall facade that also serves as a mount for a television. Wires are hidden behind the wall and connected to an integrated A/V rack anchored at the base of the media stand.
At 350 total watts of power, the system delivers high-resolution surround sound with five speakers, an S-Master digital amplifier and a subwoofer built into the unit. Sony's S-Force Pro front surround sound technology generates realistic surround sound from the system without the need for rear speakers, providing flexible placement options regardless of a room's existing elements or shape. The system is optimized for Blu-ray Disc and other high-definition video sources with dual 1080p capable HDMI(TM) inputs and support for 24p True Cinema video pass-through for use with HDMI-capable HDTVs with compatible display capability. It has four digital audio inputs (three optical, one coaxial), two analog audio inputs and an extra subwoofer output.
Also included is Sony's Digital Media Port, which adds networking and connectivity for music playback with various optional accessories. Among them are audio cradles compatible with select Network Walkman players and iPod products, a PC client device and a Bluetooth adapter (sold separately).
