SAN DIEGO, March 1, 2023 /PRNewswire/ -- Sony Electronics Inc. today announced its newest soundbar, the HT-S2000. 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.1
An immersive surround sound experience
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.
Clear dialogue, powerful rich bass
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.
Introducing the new Home Entertainment Connect app
Setting up and using the soundbar is easier than ever with the Sony | Home Entertainment Connect app.1 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.
Upgraded home cinema experience
The optional wireless subwoofer (SA-SW5 / SA-SW3)2 will add rich bass sound. For even more cinematic thrills, including sound directly behind, add Sony's optional wireless rear speakers (SA-RS3S)1. Paired with a compatible BRAVIA XR TV™1,3 TV, soundbar sound settings automatically appear on the BRAVIA Quick Settings menu for easy control.
