Elevate home theater setups with Dolby Atmos for a breathtaking cinematic audio experience with three-dimensional sound and extraordinary height sensation

LAS VEGAS January 8, 2018 – Sony Electronics announced today its sophisticated and compact SS-CSE Dolby Atmos enabled speakers. Dolby Atmos transports you from the ordinary into the extraordinary with breathtaking, moving audio that fills your room and flows all around you, even overhead. Adding to an already impressive lineup, the speakers are designed to be placed on top of the SS-CS3 floor standing speakers and SS-CS5 bookshelf speakers.


Full Home Theater Experience with Dolby Atmos

The SS-CSE speakers provide home theater aficionados with a truly cinematic sound experience. With Dolby Atmos, you’ll feel like you’re inside the action as the sounds of people, places, things, and music come alive with breathtaking realism and move throughout the space. Consumers also don’t have to worry about the hassle of mounting. The angled design of the SS-CSE up-firing speakers reflect sound off surfaces to provide a revolutionized multidimensional experience.

Aesthetically Pleasing Design

The SS-CSE speakers’ compact design provides users the freedom to choose the best combination of placement options to fit their unique entertainment needs by simply placing the speakers on top of any floor standing or bookshelf speaker – equipment mounting is not required. If mounting is preferred, the speakers can easily be secured to the wall for a Dolby Atmos enabled system and employed as surround speakers. Though the SS-CSE design allows for usage on any home-theater setup, it is ideally designed to match the appealingly design of the SS-CS3 floor standing speaker and SS-CS5 bookshelf speakers and deliver clear, wide spatial reproduction of sound for TV and movies.


Connectivity Bringing Sound to Life

The SS-CSE is the perfect match for the newly announced Sony STR-DH790 7.2ch 4K HDR AV Receiver that supports Dolby Atmos and DTS:X™. For fans of the STR-DN1080 7.2 ch. Dolby Atmos Wi-Fi Network AV Receiver, the SS-CSE speaker pairs seamlessly with the powerhouse receiver to envelop you in a new level of sound performance. The speaker compliments the CS-Series Speaker line-up, which includes the SS-CS3 floor standing speaker, SS-CS5 bookshelf speakers, SS-CS8 center channel speaker and the SA-CS9 active subwoofer, to expand your true home theater experience without limitations. The 7 1/8 × 5 3/4 × 7 1/8 inch (145mm height with grill; 180mm length without speaker terminal) SS-CSE features rich acoustics with a strong MDF cabinet, 10cm full range speaker system, a Mica Reinforced Cellular cone, with a Maximum Input Power of 100W per channel, and 70Hz-32000Hz frequency range.
