Music as the artist intended
Enjoy the subtlest nuances of studio-quality sound with High-Resolution Audio via Wi-Fi1. Passion for music unites every component from signal to speaker, while advanced technologies such as digital upscaling help create the ultimate listening experience.
Superior sound by design
Easily boost the quality of your music with the SRS-X88 — the compact wireless speaker designed for High-Resolution Audio listening. Enjoy your music library whether it’s on your smartphone, PC or via music service. Two super-tweeters, two mid-range drivers, a subwoofer and two passive radiators add up to rich, immersive sound.
How High-Resolution Audio works
High-Resolution Audio refers to a collection of digital processes allowing the encoding and playback of music using higher sampling rates than those used in CDs.
Engineered for exceptional sound
Two super-tweeters, two mid-range speakers and a subwoofer work together, driven by a total of five high-powered amplifiers and made of premium materials—for results that will be music to your ears.
Reach the highest highs
Originally developed by Sony for high-end systems, the 20mm soft dome type super tweeters deliver the crystalline highs of High-Resolution Audio.
Enjoy crystal clear vocals with 40mm magnetic fluid speakers, where a damperless fluid suspension keeps secondary sound pressure from developing.
Bass that makes a statement
Feel soul-shaking bass emanating from the long-stroke 69mm subwoofer, and hear your favourite tunes with newly enriched presence.
Passive radiators for deeper lows
A newly developed dual passive radiator extends and enhances the bass response of the subwoofer for deep, resonant lows.
Savour every note
Traditional amps require multiple digital to analogue conversions—each affecting quality. The S-Master amp is 100% digital for more power without distortion, improving efficiency and reducing size. Enhanced for High-Resolution Audio, the S-Master HX digital amplifier reduces noise levels for the precision needed with high frequency ranges (above 40kHz).
Restore all your compressed files
The Digital Sound Enhancement Engine HX (DSEE HX) upscales your compressed digital music files (MP3, ACC, ATRAC and WMA) and takes them closer to the quality of High-Resolution Audio. By restoring the high-range sound lost in the compression process, DSEE HX produces your digital music files in rich, natural sound, closer to the quality of the original recording.
LDAC: High quality wireless listening
LDAC is a new audio technology from Sony that allows you to enjoy high quality wireless audio via Bluetooth. With three times the data transmitted2, LDAC provides an enhanced wireless listening experience for all your music.
