An international forerunner in the electronics industry, Sony Electronics is renowned for its dominant grip on creating exceptional products for consumers. From projectors to speakers, Sony has proven itself to be a premium brand consistently delivering a high-quality entertainment experience.
Recently, Sony reported the release of their latest soundbar, the HT-S2000. This soundbar has been crafted to give listeners a "cinematic surround sound experience". Made possible by Vertical Surround Engine and S-Force PRO Front Surround, the HT-S2000 reproduces immersive audio when enjoying all types of content, including stereo sound. Using the power of this innovative technology, the soundbar can give recordings a natural, lifelike feel that is three-dimensional, making its Dolby Atmos/DTS:X capabilities a worthwhile addition. Built within the speaker is a dual subwoofer that provides intensity and richness to bass and a center speaker that amps the clarity of the audio's dialogue.
Another incredible feature found in this soundbar is its compatibility with another new creation by Sony, their Home Entertainment Connect app. This app allows full control of the soundbar from a smartphone and offers information about the soundbar, including software updates and recommendations. Users also have the option to maximize the soundbar's functionality by pairing it with a BRAVIA XR TV for seamless control of its settings through the Quick Settings menu feature. This soundbar is great to use in any home theater and for the environment, as it is made with recycled plastic. The MSRP on the HT-S2000 is $499.99 and will be available for pre-order at Sony Electronics, Amazon, and select retailers.
SAN DIEGO, CA — March 1, 2023 — Sony Electronics Inc. today announced its newest soundbar, the HTS2000. This 3.1ch Dolby Atmos®/DTS:X® soundbar delivers cinematic surround sound by Vertical Surround Engine and S-Force PRO Front Surround. Thanks to a newly developed up mixer, this soundbar delivers a three-dimensional surround experience even when playing stereo content. The center speaker ensures clear dialogue, while the built-in dual subwoofer delivers deep bass. This soundbar will also be the first compatible device for the new Sony | Home Entertainment Connect app.
With Vertical Surround Engine and S-Force Pro Front Surround, the HT-S2000 creates cinematic surround sound that lets consumers enjoy the thrill of Dolby Atmos and DTS:X. With Sony’s virtual surround technology, the soundbar can position sound in vertical space. S-Force Pro virtually reproduces the surround sound field, with audio coming from both sides. Entertainment lovers can enjoy rich, cinematic surround sound without cluttering their living space.
With Sony's newly developed up mixer, users can experience three-dimensional surround sound not only with surround sound format content, but also with stereo content, like streaming video or music services. Analyzing the track in real time, Sony’s new algorithm extracts individual sound objects depending on their localization and reallocates them, resulting in three-dimensional surround sound.
The powerful speakers include a dedicated center speaker for clear dialogue and built-in dual subwoofer for punchy bass. They work together to deliver clear and wide-ranging sound throughout the room. Sony’s X-balanced Speaker Unit is the key technology to achieve louder sound pressure with less distortion and greater vocal clarity.
Setting up and using the soundbar is easier than ever with the Sony | Home Entertainment Connect app. It can guide the user through initial settings, assist with troubleshooting, and give full control of volume, sound fields and more right from their smartphone. It also offers the user useful information such as recommendation of features, new software updates and more.
The optional wireless subwoofer (SA-SW5 / SA-SW3) will add rich bass sound. For even more cinematic thrills, including sound directly behind, add Sony’s optional wireless rear speakers (SA-RS3S). Paired with a compatible BRAVIA XR TV™ TV, soundbar sound settings automatically appear on the BRAVIA Quick Settings menu for easy control.
The home audio products from Sony are designed not only for an excellent sound experience but also with the environment in mind. Sony is committed to using less plastic in our products and packaging. The HT-S2000 uses specially developed recycled plastic in several parts of the product, which enables Sony to reproduce superb acoustic performance with recycled plastics. Approximately 95% of the packaging is made from recycled paper and paper-based materials to minimize the use of plastic. To learn more, please visit: https://electronics.sony.com/sustainable-audio.
