While this speaker is much larger than most Bluetooth speakers, you don’t have to worry about carrying it around yourself — it comes with a set of wheels and a handle to make it as portable as possible. If you’re running an advanced sound system for a bigger event, you’ll be pleased to know that through Sony’s Party Connect feature, you’ll be able to pair up to 100 compatible Sony Bluetooth speakers for a deafening sound that will raise the roof of your house (or venue). This can be amplified with the Mega Bass feature that ramps up the bass on the speaker, and for a realistic concert-like experience, Sony added the Live Sound option.
The device can also be used for karaoke or playing music live. You can plug in a microphone, or a microphone and a guitar, in order to perform for your friends or a larger live audience. Apart from crazy raves, you can use the SRS-XV900 for a more cozy affair, such as watching TV. The speaker comes with a TV Sound Booster function that enhances the sound of movies and shows; for that, you can use the included optical cable and use it with any TV brand or model.
The Sony SRS-XV900 is available for pre-order starting on September 20, 2022, directly from Sony, but it will also be made available at Amazon, Best Buy, and other retailers shortly. The model’s priced at $899.99, so it’s not exactly cheap, but it sounds like its sheer size and power could certainly help it rank high among the best portable Bluetooth speakers of the year.
