SAN DIEGO, March 18, 2014 /PRNewswire/ --

WHO: Sony announced three new wireless speakers are available today, each giving audiophiles easy access to rich, powerful sound in a sleek "Definitive Outline" design. The SRS-X9 High-Resolution wireless speaker system, and the SRS-X7 and SRS-X5 wireless speaker systems, developed in collaboration with Sony Music, bring clear vocals and bass-rich thumping tunes to any living space or on the go. The SRS-X9 will retail for $699.99, the SRS-X7 for $299.99 and the SRS-X5 for $199.99.

WHAT: Sony's new wireless speakers, with clean lines of metal and glass, feature a geometric "Definitive Outline" design consisting of 12 outlines around the square form to create the most suitable sound wave. All three models also offer a multitude of connectivity and streaming options, at home and on the go. The speakers easily connect wirelessly to nearly any Bluetooth-enabled device, including smartphones, tablets and computers, and can connect to NFC-enabled devices with a simple tap. All three models also support on-board WiFi® for direct access to online music and internet radio services such as Music Unlimited, Spotify®, and TuneIn Radio when consumers download the SongPal app to their mobile device, as well as Apple Airplay® and DLNA.

The flagship model, SRS-X9 wireless speaker, supports High-Resolution Audio.   Converting live music to digital formats such as MP3 or even traditional CD results in much of the original audio being irreversibly lost.  High-Res Audio retains far more detail during the analog-to-digital conversion process, allowing listeners to experience music as artists originally intended. With 154W of music output power, a bi-amped subwoofer and dual passive radiators, the premium 2.1 channel system delivers full-range audio with tonal balance and precise bass response.

The SRS-X7 has a similar modern design but is more compact than the SRS-X9. It also is a premium 2.1 channel system with WiFi and Bluetooth and USB accessory. Its built-in rechargeable battery offers up to six hours of play time. With a built-in subwoofer, the SRS-X7 offers incredibly vibrant sound.

The portable SRS-X5 is packed with 20W of powerful audio and offers up to eight hours of continuous playback. The little powerhouse also includes a built-in subwoofer with dual passive radiators for amazing bass.

All three models include Sony's advanced Digital Sound Enhancement Engine (DSEE HX™), ClearAudio+™, an S-Master® Digital Amplifier and built-in NFC technology.

WHERE: All three wireless speaker models, the SRS-X9 for $699.99, the SRS-X7 for $299.99 and the SRS-X5 for $199.99, are available now for purchase at Sony stores, other authorized dealers nationwide and online at www.sony.com/wirelessspeakers.
