- Long distance bass sound with JET BASS BOOSTER
- Party Light and Speaker Light
- Gesture and voice control
USB port lets you plug in, play and charge
Play tracks stored on a USB device, or make your own custom playlists with direct CD-to-USB recording. Simply connect your device to the PLAY / REC port and you are set to power up your next party with all your favourite tracks. Or use the USB port to charge your smartphone too while you're partying.
Fill your party space with sound
Bring the festival sound to birthdays, special occasions and spur of the moment gatherings. Long distance bass sound delivered by the JET BASS BOOSTER allows your partygoers to enjoy even more powerful music all around the venue.
Fill the room with big, festival sound thanks to angled tweeter units that spread sound wider.
Feel the beat even at long distances with JET BASS BOOSTER
A tapered bass reflex duct structure concentrates the airflow of the bass sound, so you can hear it clearly and feel it physically, wherever you are in the crowd and over long distances.
DSP Technology creates that festival vibe by flooding your party space with the realistic sound of a music festival and live concert.
Enjoy high-quality Bluetooth streaming with LDAC
LDAC sends approximately three times more data (at the maximum 990 kbps transfer rate) than conventional Bluetooth audio for a superior wireless listening experience.
Handle for easy carrying
Whenever you want to move the MHC-V42D, just hold the convenient handle, lift and take it to wherever you want to party.
Boost the party with extra speakers
Enjoy more powerful sound by connecting multiple home audio systems via Bluetooth connection. Connect up to 50 compatible home audio systems and synchronise the music and lighting.
Multi device connection lets more people control the music
You and your friends can pair up to three smartphones with the MHC-V42D simultaneously using Bluetooth technology. You'll all be able to play tracks from all your music libraries, giving you even more choice.
DSEE automatically restores detail to digital music
Boost the quality of your compressed music files. When an original music source is compressed, it loses the high frequency elements that add detail and richness to your favourite tracks. The Digital Sound Enhancement Engine (DSEE) faithfully restores these to produce high quality sound that's closer to the original CD recording.
Party Light and Speaker Light
Light up every corner of the party, even in large spaces with multi-coloured party lights and speaker lights, so you can enjoy an authentic nightclub or outdoor festival atmosphere.
Unleash your inner pop star
Keep everyone entertained - with two mic inputs you and your guests can go head-to-head singing along to your favourite tunes. Add a rock and roll layer by alternatively connecting a guitar to one of the inputs and using the system as a guitar amp. Enjoy three modes - Clean for a clear sound, Overdrive for a distorted guitar sound and Bass for your bass guitar.
Vertical and horizontal Gesture Control
Skip a track, change up from flanger to WAH, turn up the karaoke mic, control the pitch of the mic and music, or turn up the volume with a vertical or horizontal wave of your hand. Gesture Control lets you control the MHC-V42D's functions quickly and easily so you can stay right in the heart of the party moment.
Voice Control via Fiestable
Change track, turn on the light, flash all the colours just by speaking. Simply select the Voice Control via the Fiestable app and speak your command - the lights and sounds will obey.
Enhance the experience with Party Light via Fiestable
Just tap Party Light via Fiestable app on your smartphone and the phone's display starts to mirror the sound system's lighting effects, flashing and changing colour in time with the music. There's no limit to the number of smartphones that can join in, which makes for a unique shared experience.
Be the party king
Share your party status on social media with just one click from the Fiestable app. Then, turn up the music and climb the party people ranks to become the certified Party King.
Run everything from the dancefloor
The Sony | Music Center app lets you control music and sound settings right from your phone. Plus the Fiestable app puts you in charge of the light colours and lets you activate DJ and karaoke modes. Make changes with a flick of your wrist, thanks to intuitive motion control.
HDMI output for simple setup
With the HDMI (ARC) output you can easily connect the system to your TV. Watch TV and DVDs on your normal screen while enjoying huge sound from the MHC-V42D speakers.
Watch movies with a built-in DVD player
Enjoy the drama in every scene with powerful volume and sound pressure that puts you at the heart of the action. Turn your living room into the theatre and host epic movie nights.
NFC One-touch for instant connectivity
Near Field Communication (NFC) and Bluetooth technology remove the need for wired connections and complex set-up sequences. Simply touch your NFC-enabled device to the headphones for a quick, seamless connection, then start streaming your music collection. No NFC? No problem. Connect via Bluetooth and you're ready to go.
