Certified THX Integrated System Image

Certified THX® Integrated System

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 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 Image

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.

Unleash Dolby Atmos or DTS:X Home Theater Image

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 for an immersive movie or gaming experience. 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.
