Upgrade Your System to Dolby Atmos or DTS:X
The SS-CSE speakers are designed specifically for Dolby Atmos surround sound setups, but are also compatible with other advanced surround formats like DTS:X.
Place Atop Your Speakers
The SS-CSE speakers can sit on top of your existing speakers and reflect sound off your ceiling for immersive audio.
Wall-Mountable
Rather than placing the SS-CSE speakers on top of your existing speakers, you could mount them to the wall in various placement options for more effective multi-dimensional Dolby Atmos sound.
MDF Cabinet for Enhanced Acoustics
The all-wood cabinet is designed to deliver resonant acoustics while dampening and absorbing unwanted vibrations with the MDF (medium-density fiberboard) interior joints.
Mica-Reinforced Cellular Cone Drivers
The MRC full-range drivers are more rigid than paper cones, retaining their shape even under high pressure.
CS-Series Design
The SS-CSE speakers are engineered to blend into your décor and match the existing CS-series speakers in both sound and design.

Sony SS-CSE Reviews

The Sound Bouncer

By Lauri821
Rated 5 out of 5

I bought four of these speakers to fill out a 7.2.4 setup where ceiling speakers could not be installed. I am happy to experience the immersive sound while sitting in more than just the acoustic "sweet spot". The chance to hear sound coming from what seems to be not from the speakers is expected but also unnerving to the folk that are not accustomed to such a level of surround sound.

A World of Difference

I purchased these upfiring speakers after reading about Dolby Atmos sound. Wow! Instead of listening to 5.1 surround coming from my left, right, center front speakers and left, right rear speakers and my subwoofer, it now sounds as though I'm in a geodesic dome of speakers with sound coming from everywhere around and above me. Dialogue is clearer and music envelopes me, while the sound effects of the movies happen in a real-world environment. These Dolby-enabled speakers unleashed my tuner's Atmos capabilities. It's quite remarkable.

Decided to buy a discrete system after having bad luck with a soundbar system from a four-letter (!) manufacturer. No regrets! Treated myself to a Sony STR-DH790 7.2-Channel A/V Receiver, the Sony SS-CS3 3-Way Floorstanding Speakers, a set of Sony SS-CSE Atmos speakers (this review), the Sony SA-CS9 10 115W Subwoofer, Sony SS-CS8 2-Way Center Channel Speaker, a set of Sony SS-CS5 3-Way Bookshelf Speakers for the rear... These speakers add the front Atmos channels to the system in our living room. Maybe I expected more of an Atmos enabled system - when playing videos that are encoded with those channels (and made sure the receiver is set correctly!). But I do not get that overhead feeling from them, like it has been described in numerous tests and demonstration videos. Yes, I DID take time to adjust the settings in the receiver to get the best sound image in the room. If you take your time and go through all the settings and figure out all the settings/options on the receiver, the end result OVERALL will NOT disappoint you. But the Atmos presence... well... the jury is still out on that. Maybe it is not the speakers, maybe I have unrealistic expectations. Have not watched/listened to a lot of movies yet, but my favorites so far are Das Boot and the end live-concert of Bohemian Rhapsody... The concert scene puts you in the middle of the audience - I can play that concert over and over just to be immersed in it. In Das Boot, you do get the claustrophobic feeling delivered to you. Overall, this has been a good investment.

Currently have these hanging as front height speakers. They were easy to hang. Still tweaking the 5.1.2 set up,but aren't we always? I will say, adding these does make a difference while watching a movie with Atmos. Using these with a Sony STR DH790. Very happy with these speakers, and as always B&H made it very easy to get these home. If your on the fence, go ahead a grab a pair of these, you'll be glad you did!

question

Will these speakers be compatible with Sony Ht-St5000 dolby atmos soundbar?
Asked by: jean l.
They are not designed for use with soundbars. They will connect to an AV home receiver with DOLBY ATMOS speaker outputs and processing. The compact SS-CSE speaker can sit on top of your existing speakers for an even more immersive surround experience. Unlike conventional speakers, they are designed specifically to reflect sound off your ceiling for sound that is truly all-encompassing.

question

What is the suggested mounting height when I mount these on the wall? I have a 17 foot sloped ceiling.
Asked by: Reynold B.
The maximum recommended ceiling height is 14 feet. Atmos will not work well with your ceiling. These were originally designed to sit on top of ear-level speakers. If mounted on the wall, with a 17' high ceiling, the speakers should be about 3-7 feet below the ceiling.

question

Will these speakers sound similar to svs prime elevation speakers if I wall mount them?
Asked by: Anonymous
These SONY speakers do a fairly nice job reproducing the Dolby Atmos effects. The SVS speakers will offer more detail. Bear in mind that in audio, as in most things, you usually get what you pay for. The SVS speakers are about twice the price of the SONY's.

That DVD system was not built for Atmos. You could theoretically use them, as basic surround speakers, but you would not get any Atmos effect.

Asked by: Gjergji
Hi, your receiver is an Atmos capable receiver. These are the Atmos add-on speakers that go on top of your front main speakers and fire off of the ceiling to get the Atmos effect with your surround sound system. They are made for a receiver like yours.
