HDMI™ Active Intelligence (3in/1out)
The HT-CT100 can detect and receive the best possible video and audio signals from all connected devices—making connection and performance as simple as plugging in a single wire. Sony®’s HDMI™ Active Intelligence, transmits both audio and video signals through one HDMI™ cable.

LPCM Playback
LPCM is a method of encoding audio information digitally which can have up to 8 channels of uncompressed audio. This wider bandwidth allows for high resolution audio which is closer to the original.

3.1 Channel

S-Force Surround
By using a powerful 100% digital Sony® S-Master® amplifier and DSP (Digital Signal Processing) technology, realistic surround sound can be generated from just two front speakers. Unlike other “virtual surround” technologies, rear sound is generated from the front two speakers using sophisticated digital sound processing and does not need to be bounced off of side walls. No matter what the size or shape of the room or what’s on the wall, it’s possible to hear sounds from behind you without needing to place speakers behind you.

As a leader in products with HDMI™ connectivity, Sony has created BRAVIA® Sync to go beyond simple audio and video transmission. When combined with a select number of BRAVIA® televisions and other Sony audio and video products, control functions will be transmitted via the HDMI™ cable. With “One Touch Play,” operations that took several steps have been reduced to one. Press the PLAY button on the remote, watch the audio and/or the video component(s) turn on then the BRAVIA® television turn on and switch to the correct video input.

Portable Audio Enhancer
A powerful Digital Signal Processor expands the quality of sound from any connected device.

The demand for digital audio and video content continues to be strong. Sony®’s DIGITAL MEDIA PORT (DMP) interface is a proprietary interface that adds networking and connectivity options to your home theater system. Just connect optional accessories (sold separately) which provide the ability to control and power devices while making set up easy and operation simple to use. The DMP will be compatible with various accessories which will include a PC Client ready device, Bluetooth® adapter and Audio Docking stations compatible with select Network Walkman™ and iPod® products. Regardless of where you store your music.
