We’ve seen plenty of news about high-resolution audio lately. We’ve also seen a lot of Bluetooth speakers. Now, Sony is bringing the two together under the SRS-X9. The new high-resolution wireless speaker system is now shipping.

If high-res audio isn’t that important to you, Sony is also shipping the SRS-X7 and the SRS-X5, two new wireless speakers.

All three feature Sony’s “Definitive Outline” design, Bluetooth connectivity with Near Field Communication (NFC) for instant pairing, and on-board Wi-Fi. With all of those wireless options, users can stream content directly to the speaker from smartphones, tablets and computers. For even more musical choices, download the free SongPal app and use Apple Airplay or DLNA to tap into web-based music services such as Music Unlimited, Spotify, and TuneIn Radio.

Other features across the new lineup include Sony’s Digital Sound Enhancement Engine (DSEE HX), ClearAudio+ technology, and an S-Master digital amplifier.

The flagship model is that SRS-X9, which supports high-res audio and boasts 154 watts of music power. Other features include a bi-amped subwoofer and dual passive radiators. The SRS-X7 is slightly more compact, promising a built-in subwoofer and up to 6 hours of playtime when using the rechargeable battery. Last in the new lineup is the SRS-X5, which offers up to 8 hours of playback and has a built-in subwoofer with dual passive radiators, as well as 20 watts of audio.

Sony has listed the SRS-X9 with an MSRP of $699.99. The SRS-X7 and SRS-X5 are also selling now for $299.99 and $199.99, respectively.
