Sony's S-Force Pro 2.1 surround sound technology emulates a three-dimensional surround sound field by using advanced signal processing and sound wave phasing, while the omnidirectional subwoofer handles the low-frequency effects. The result is full immersive surround sound with fewer wires, and less speakers than some surround systems. The digital direct twin drive subwoofer delivers a much more powerful and uniform bass sound that exceeds most passive or active subwoofer systems. The speakers are specially designed with two unique drivers in each, which are fed by multiple discrete channels, helping to create an immediate, "out of box" surround sound experience. The DAV-X1 provides built-in Dolby Digital, DTS, and Pro Logic II surround decoding for playback through two speakers and subwoofer).
