LOS ANGELES, April 25, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- At a special listening event
today, Sony Electronics debuted new products from its 2013 Shelf System and
Personal Audio lines. Available May 27, the products exemplify Sony's
legendary commitment to music and sound, and are packed with easy to use
connectivity and accessibility features.

"Music is the soundtrack of our lives, and for generations Sony has delivered
innovative, fun devices for sharing music as a part of most every social
occasion," said Andrew Sivori, vice president product marketing, Sony
Electronics' Home Entertainment & Sound division. "Our newest audio products
not only deliver explosive sound, but do so with easy connectivity and
built-in lights ready to start the celebration at any time."

A Sound Machine You Not Only Hear, but See and Feel

The RDH-GTK37iP portable sound system is a 420 Watt mega-boombox party
on-the-go, with connectivity features designed to get the party started with
OneTouch. Simply touch Near-Field Communications (NFC) enabled mobile devices
such as smart phones and tablets to the sound system to quickly and easily
stream your favorite music. Devices without NFC capabilities can still connect
easily through the system's built-in Bluetooth. Additionally, a front USB
input connects MP3 players and flash drives, and an integrated docking system
accommodates iPod and iPhone devices with ease.

Music is powered through a 2-way bass reflex speaker system with dual
subwoofers, delivering 420 Watts total RMS power to ears in the room and
beyond, and EQ and DJ effect controls let you customize the sound and take
over as MC. But, the party doesn't stop just there, as the system speakers
also incorporate multicolored LED/strobe lights to display illumination
effects, turning any room into the hottest club. Priced at $349, the
RDG-GTK37iP boombox will be available at Sony Stores and, as well as electronics retailers nationwide.

High Wattage Mini Systems Let the Neighbors Know the Block Party Has Started

Last year Sony brought more than a little shake, rattle and roll into its
music lineup with the LBT-SH2000 high wattage mini system, a 2000 Watt
powerhouse that gained king of the hill status in cities nationwide for its
ability to deliver disruptive sound. Joining it in this year's lineup are the
new LBT-GPX55 and LBT-GPX77 mini systems. Boasting 1600 and 1800 wall shaking
Watts respectively, the LBT-GPX55 and LBT-DPXX77 mini systems both feature
3-way speaker systems and a single disc CD player, as well as dual front USB
inputs for use with MP3 players and flash drives and also include Bluetooth
audio streaming with simple NFC OneTouch pairing.

Both products feature EQ and DJ effects controls, letting consumers develop
and customize their own signature sound, and the Sony Digital Sound
Enhancement Engine (DSEE) restores life to compressed MP3 files. Like the
RDH-GTK37iP system, the LBT-GPX77 model has selectable multicolored LED
illumination to pulse with the music.

Starting at $499 for the LBT-GPX55, both mini-systems are available at Sony
stores and, and electronics retailers nationwide.
