Sony will launch the new HT-S2000 3.1 channel Dolby Atmos/DTS:X soundbar featuring Vertical Surround Engine and S-Force Pro Front Surround. It will be the first Sony device compatible with the new Sony | Home Entertainment Connect app.

Thanks to a newly developed up mixer, this soundbar delivers a three-dimensional surround experience even when playing stereo content. Analysing the track in real time, Sony’s new algorithm extracts individual sound objects depending on their localisation and reallocates them, resulting in three-dimensional surround sound.

The centre speaker ensures clear dialogue, while the built-in dual subwoofer delivers deep bass. Sony’s X-balanced speaker unit is the key technology to achieve louder sound pressure with less distortion and greater vocal clarity.

The Sony | Home Entertainment Connect app can guide through initial settings, assist with troubleshooting, and give full control of volume, sound fields and more. It also offers useful information such as recommendations of features, new software updates and more.

Reflecting Sony’s commitment to using less plastic in products and packaging, the HT-S2000 uses specially developed recycled plastic in several parts of the product and approximately 95% of the packaging is made from recycled paper and paper-based materials.

The HT-S2000 will be available in Australia from late April 2023 for SRP $699.
