THX Certified Select Reference Sound
THX Integrated System guarantees theater-quality sound in an affordable all-in-one package. Certified systems are ideal for smaller spaces where the screen-to-seat viewing distance is about 6–8 ft. (2–3 m). All components within the system are rigorously tested to meet THX standards, delivering the same distortion-free sound volume you experience in a commercial theater.
Dynamic Audio Amplification
The high-current capability of Dynamic Audio Amplification is proven by an ability to drive four-ohm speaker loads, which severely test the strongest amplifier. Heaps of muscle means superior control, restoring energy to stereo and multichannel sound. In addition, VLSC eliminates pulse-noise for optimal playback of quality stereo sources.
THX Integrated System Certified Speakers
This 2-Way speaker package features solid MDF enclosures and A-OMF woofers (comprising layered polyethylene naphthalate and flexible cotton weave). Included 2-way Surround speakers with 5 1/8˝ (13 cm) A-OMF drivers assure full-scale surround. Front-firing sub fitted with a 12˝ (30 cm) cone outputs 125 Watts of chest-rumbling bass. All speakers are certified to meet THX Integrated System standards.
Unleash Dolby Atmos or DTS:X Home Theater
Object-based soundtracks allow independently mixed sound to play through any speaker in your system, moving above and around you with breathtaking realism. The HT-S9800THX reproduces 5.2.2-channel Dolby Atmos or DTS:X formats, with the included wall-mountable Surround speakers convincingly reproducing overhead effects.
