Sony Electronics is rolling out the HT-S400 2.1 channel soundbar, promising a powerful audio experience thanks to S-Force Pro Front Surround technology, clear dialogue features and powerful 330-watts total power output.

Coupled with S-Force Pro Front Surround technology, Sony’s unique digital sound field processing technology virtually reproduces the surround sound field only using front speakers. The front speakers include an X-Balanced speaker unit sporting a unique rectangular shape that maximises the diaphragm, reduces driver excursion and maintains sound pressure for less distortion and improved vocal clarity.

The Separated Notch Edge on the X-Balanced speaker unit improves vertical amplitude symmetry, essential for clear sound quality. It achieves this by using strategically placed cuts on the edge, which helps to control the stress inside and outside the edge of the diaphragm.

The OLED display window on the soundbar offers at-a-glance status information on remote control functions, including input source, volume, and sound settings.

The soundbar comes with a powerful wireless subwoofer with a large 160mm speaker unit to deliver a deeper, richer bass sound.

Connecting the HT-S400 to a Sony Bravia TV is quick and easy thanks to an integrated user interface, the soundbar settings automatically appear on the Bravia TV’s Quick Settings menu for easy control of sound settings and volume with the Bravia remote control. To minimise cable clutter, the HT-S400 soundbar has been built to receive audio wirelessly.
