Sponsored Links
227w ago - As part of E3 2010, Sony has officially announced a Surround Sound System for the PlayStation 3 entertainment system which will be available in Japan on September 30, 2010.

The sound bar utilizes Sony's S-Force PRO Front Surround Sound to create rich, deep sounds without the expense of a full surround sound system.

Sony has revealed the device will cost $199, and the device includes two audio inputs: analogue and optical.

To quote: "Users will be able to enjoy immersive audio on the PlayStation 3 system, including upcoming games supporting PlayStation Move motion controllers, Blu-ray movies, as well as stereoscopic 3D content by simply placing the speaker in front of the television and connecting it to the PS3 system with the optical digital cable.

The Surround Sound System comes with two audio inputs âˆ' an optical audio input for connecting high-end entertainment systems including PS3, and an analog audio input for connecting portable devices like the PSP® (PlayStation Portable) system to enjoy listening to music in the living room.

The form factor of the system features a sleek and casual design that matches perfectly with the PS3 system, and delivers dynamic sound without the physical space required by a traditional home theater system."

These sound bars usually have up to 10 to 20 little speakers to bounce sound off of walls to emulate surround sound.

I heard it should be pretty good from a hifi lover... Well, would have to hear it first!

A bit pricey IMO You can get an "acceptable" amp + speakers for the same money.
