Sony launches powered line array speaker

Designed specifically for large displays, the SLS-1A has been purpose-built to create a new sound field when paired with large-format displays. Sony reports that the speaker will solve common problems for large spaces with large display formats, such as unfavourable acoustics, separation of visual and sound, and the inability to install the speakers in a way that creates a prioritised listening experience for each viewer.

“We are really excited to launch this new speaker into the market to sit alongside our already well-established range of large display format products, such as our BRAVIA 4K Professional Displays, Crystal LED B and C series, and our line-up of business projectors,” commented Christopher Mullins, product manager, Sony Professional Displays & Solutions. “The launch of the SLS-1A demonstrates our commitment at Sony to developing products that focus on enabling the highest quality, most immersive AV experiences for our customers, dealers and integrators, across the retail, education and corporate sectors.”

One key feature of the modular bar-style speaker is its wide sweet spot, which creates a clear sound field in larger spaces. The SLS-1A is equipped with eight proprietary magnetic fluid speakers that use a flat and square diaphragm to achieve clear, high-quality sound with little distortion. Eight channels of DSP and an amplifier with a maximum output of 10W are built into minimal housing. In addition, the eight speakers are arranged at a narrow interval of 48mm. This is said to not only suppresses sound distortion but also enables beam control that controls the direction and angle of sound delivery with a high degree of accuracy.

The SLS-1A can be aligned vertically or horizontally, which boosts its flexibility and multiplies its potential installations in different environments. Its modular approach means that several speakers can be added through a single Dante connection. The speaker features onscreen centre sound localisation technology using a line array display with a central “phantom” speaker, making it suited to large displays where centre channel localisation is challenging due to speaker position, but also creating a uniform sound experience no matter where a viewer is positioned. The SLS-1A is designed to be paired with multiple large-format display types, including Crystal LED, BRAVIA 4K Professional Displays, as well as business projectors.
