Sony has launched a compact home cinema speaker system that looks squarely aimed at PS3 owners. Offering a 5.1 speaker system and a subwoofer complete with receiver, it can also accept decoded HD audio in the LPCM format.
That means the PlayStation3 – or other Blu-ray player – can decode the HD audio and output in a format this system can understand.
There's 3D pass-through on three HDMI inputs and one output, plus two optical and one coaxial digital input.
The HDMI channel supports audio return, while there's also an FM/AM tuner and an auto calibration system.
Available now, the Sony HT-AS5 looks set to sell for around £370.
