New Sony’s Devices With with Google Cast support
Creating your own home entertainment system for aural and visual pleasure has never been easier now, because of all these new products that OEMs have been releasing. Of course speakers have always been there, but now they’re wireless, digital, and the latest and best ones have audio and video streaming support. Sony announced the pricing and availability of four of their newest sound bars, and one of the best things about them is that they can support Google Cast, so your music and music apps can be cast onto these high-quality speakers.
The four new Sound Bar speakers are: the HT-ST9 Sound Bar has seven discrete amplifiers and nine speakers that will enhance the 7.1 channel surround sound and immersive 800 watts and it hs support for Spotify Connect; the HT-NT3 Hi-Res Sound Bar also with has 450 watts and a 2.1 channel listening experience; the HT-CT780 330 watt 2.1 Sound Bar can be wall-mounted or stand-alone, and has three HDMI inputs; and the HT-CT380 300 watt 2.1 Sound Bar has a flat panel design and can connect to HD devices via Bluetooth and NFC.
All four have wireless subwoofers, and the HT-ST9 and HT-NT3 have Sony’s pioneering LDAC technology, so that the sound quality doesn’t suffer even if you connect through Bluetooth. Another selling point of these new Sound Bars, at least the HT-ST9 and HT-NT3, is that they come built-in with Google Cast so that you can cast your music from your Android smartphone or tablet, as well as Chromebook and other devices from other platforms. There is also a SongPal app which can help you join the speakers together with its multi-room functionality.
