The world of wireless audio is increasingly thinking high resolution audio experience as the wider public starts demanding more than just your standard Bluetooth streaming. Sony is hoping that with their SRS-X9 speaker they will be in the forefront of the revolution, offering up high-res audio support as well as AirPlay, Bluetooth, AptX and DLNA support. Talk about your jack of all trades.
Sony SRS-X9 is definitely aiming wide, supporting pretty much any streaming platform found for modern music listening, regardless of whether you are on an Apple device or an Android device (should cover the vast majority). Aas well as offering a near limitless streaming option, the SRS-X9 comes with USB port for charging devices and a mini jack input should you require a wired connection. This top model is also said to offer up 154W of power output, which should keep your house rocking at a decent level.
As well as the top model Sony SRS-X9, two smaller models in the SRS-X7 and SRS-X5 also form part of the new Sony wireless speaker range. Interestingly Sony refers to them as “wireless speaker systems” an indication that somehow they might be able to work together as units. Are we looking at Sony going after the Sonos market?
