Sony announced its newest Dolby Atmos soundbar, the HT-S2000. This 5.11 channel 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 centre 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 Home Entertainment Connect app.[ii]
- Enjoy an immersive cinematic experience with Dolby Atmos/ DTS:X, S-Force PRO Front Surround and Vertical Surround Engine.
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 the 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.
- Experience Three-dimensional surround sound with the newly developed upmixer
With the newly developed upmixer, 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. Analysing the track in real time the new algorithm extracts individual sound objects depending on their localisation and reallocates them resulting in three-dimensional surround sound.
- A compact soundbar with X-Balanced Speaker delivers clear dialogue, powerful rich bass with built in subwoofer
The soundbar include a dedicated centre speaker for clear dialogue and built-in dual subwoofer for punchy bass. They work together to deliver clear and wide range of sound throughout the room. The 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 Home Entertainment Connect (HEC) app1. 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.
