Sony today introduced two exciting new models to its High-Power Audio Systems range with the MHC-V83D and MHC-V73D, expanding choices for party lovers and families with omnidirectional sound and lighting, portable design and ultimate party entertainment.
Even more powerful sound
This new line-up of High-Power Audio Systems feature key upgrades for better power and improved sound quality, such as the High-efficiency Tweeter that uses horn tweeters and High-efficiency Midrange that uses mid horn speakers. It introduces not just greater height expansion of sound but also a wider range, covering a larger area.
Omnidirectional Party Sound for V83D and V73D
Pack the dancefloor with stunning audio thanks to the new Omnidirectional Party Sound on the V83D and V73D. The V83D and V73D feature four tweeters at the front and rear to expand the sound stage upward. The midrange distributes sound from the front and the back of the speaker, covering a wider area with improved clarity for mid-range frequencies to create powerful, vibrant sound and direct clear vocals to please every partygoer.
The Omnidirectional Party Sound is a result of combining the front and rear tweeters, the midrange, a woofer and JET BASS BOOSTER, enabling music to reach further and wider, pleasing guests with great sound wherever they are and delivering strong bass while also improving clarity.
Light up the night
Omnidirectional Party Light for V83D and V73D
The V83D and V73D feature the all-new Omnidirectional Party Light that light up the party from floor to ceiling whilst creating an unforgettable atmosphere. The units send out waves of deep blue, sky blue and green with multi-coloured stripes to immerse party-goers in the ambience of a truly memorable party. Create an authentic nightclub experience thanks to the lighting’s dynamic movement.
In addition, the V83D and V73D feature woofer and midrange lights that are a deep blue colour, making them perfect for parties and events in any space.
Ambient light mode
A new ‘Ambient light’ mode across the new line-up, makes it easier than ever to transition lightly from party mode to a low-key atmosphere. This new setting makes it perfect for the family looking to unwind with slower and relaxing light animation.
Take your party to the next level
Karaoke and Mic input
With home karaoke becoming more popular than ever, the new range allows you to unleash your inner pop star with two microphone inputs. You and your guests can go head to head singing along to your favourite tracks. The Microphone Echo feature blends vocals with background music to make the experience more seamless, mirroring the effect of singing in a concert hall. When you’re finished, you can store the mics and cables safely and hassle free in the dedicated built-in microphone holders.
Alternatively, add a rock and roll layer by connecting a guitar to one of the inputs using the system as a guitar amp. Enjoy three modes for the ultimate jam session: ‘Clean’ for a clear sound, ‘Overdrive’ for a distorted guitar sound, and ‘Bass’ for your bass guitar.
Control from the palm of your hand
Party Playlist via Fiestable
The new range of systems also now feature Party Playlist that lets your guests add their favourite tunes to your playlist. Guests can add music stored in their smartphones to your playlist over your Wi-Fi® network via the Fiestable app, so your party never stops.

TAIKO mode for V83D and V73D
The latest Taiko Game mode on the V83D and V73D allows you to add your own drumming to any song by tapping the top panel in time to the beat, putting your rhythm to the test when you play against your friends, adding even more excitement to the party.
Protect the party for longer
The V83D and V73D sport a 360-degree robust design which includes a hard-plastic exterior that protects all sides of the unit and four corner protectors. Transporting these units has never been easier, just simply hold the convenient carry handle, tilt it back and the sturdy caster lets you roll right onto the party.
