Cinema Is Coming Home

Feel the emotion and excitement of the movies with BRAVIA Theater. Sony's decades of professional filmmaking experience allow us to faithfully recreate the creators vision at home with intricate surround sound and spatial audio. Immerse yourself in the story with sound that fills every corner of the space just as you hear in real life.

Unleash the Full Potential of Surround Sound

360 Spatial Sound Mapping creates multiple phantom speakers around you and reflects sound off the ceiling and walls, enabling cinema-style surround sound from a single soundbar. Add optional wireless rear speakers for an even more expansive sound stage.

Room Optimized Sound for Maximum Impact

Turn the whole room into a movie theater. Sound Field Optimization analyzes and calibrates sound to your room’s size, acoustic characteristics, and your listening position. Add-on optional rear speakers and subwoofer, placing them to your liking, and they will be calibrated alongside the soundbar creating an even wider surround sound field.

Sound Straight from Cinema

Bring authentic cinema surround sound quality to your living room. BRAVIA Theatre supports industry-standard formats including Dolby Atmos®, DTS:X®, and IMAX® Enhanced certification.

Innovative Acoustic Design

With 11 speaker units, BRAVIA Theater Bar 8 delivers exceptional acoustic performance. Hear precise spatial audio with dedicated front, center, and up-firing speaker channels. Additional side-firing speakers fill your space with wide directional sound that bounce off the walls for added atmosphere. Quad woofers round out the sound by delivering deep, punchy bass.

Expand Your Surround Sound

Expand the cinematic experience with optional wireless subwoofer (SA-SW3 or SA-SW5) and rear speakers (SA-RS3R or SA-RS5) to hear sound with even greater impact. Connection is simplified as the subwoofer and rear speakers automatically pair when powered on.

BRAVIA Theater and BRAVIA TV, the Perfect Pair

Pair BRAVIA Theater with a compatible BRAVIA TV for the ultimate cinema-like experience at home. Acoustic Center Sync pairs the TVs speakers with the soundbar, reinforcing the center channel for clearer, fuller dialogue. When connected, easily control the soundbar settings on the TVs Quick Settings menu, making it easy to adjust volume and sound field with a single remote.

Do It All with BRAVIA Connect App

Easily control BRAVIA Theater from your smartphone. The BRAVIA Connect app guides you through initial setup and lets you adjust volume, sound field and more. Also, use the BRAVIA Connect app to perform Sound Field Optimization to calibrate sound to your room’s unique acoustic characteristics.

Support For All the Latest Video and Gaming Formats

Get the most out of all your entertainment. With support for 4K HDR, 8K HDR, and Dolby Vision®, everything you watch will feel so real. Take gaming to the next level with HDMI 2.1 features 4K120, VRR and ALLM as well as exclusive features for the PlayStation® 5 – Auto HDR Tone Mapping and Auto Genre Picture Mode – for optimized picture settings when connected with a compatible BRAVIA TV and PS5® console.

Stream Music From Everywhere

Support for Spotify Connect™, Apple® AirPlay® 2 and Bluetooth® lets you wirelessly stream music and enjoy every detail in high-quality upmixed sound.

Lose Yourself in Supreme Music Quality

Bring your music to life as never before. Enjoy tracks the way the artists intended with High-Resolution Audio. For low-resolution tracks, DSEE Ultimate™ (Digital Sound Enhancement Engine) upmixes compressed digital music, restoring acoustic details for a richer listening experience. And discover a new way of hearing music with 360 Reality Audio for a truly immersive live music experience.

Designed with the Environment in Mind

BRAVIA Theater is designed for an exceptional sound experience while having less impact on the environment. Sony is committed to using more recycled materials with approximately 65% less virgin plastic used in Sony's soundbars and packaging compared to previous models and fabrics recycled from PET plastic bottles.
