The Sony HTSF200 Soundbar and Woofer
What can be better than a wonderful, high resolution, dynamic TV picture? Well, how about a wonderful TV picture accompanied by a top soundbar offering a high definition sound experience to enhance your viewing. A modern soundbar is essentially the home cinema equivalent of the ‘icing on the cake’.
Today we look at one of Sony’s latest offering, the HTSF200 2.1 Channel Soundbar with In-built subwoofer for full bodied, meaty and impressive audio performance.
Less is More
When it comes to styling and tidiness, the adage ‘less is more’ certainly applies to this powerful unit that removes the need for unsightly cables ruining the lines of the home cinema system its providing sound for. The reason for this? An integrated subwoofer, negating the need for any extra sound hardware.
The impressiveness of HTSF200 2.1 reaches a new level when you consider that its sound is produced by a unit that is just 58cm x 6.4cm x 9.5cm and weighs in at just 2.3kg.
Pairing the hardware to your TV is child’s play, as it comes with an HDMI ARC cable that connects with little effort and its wireless capability means connecting to your Android TV happens with just a few taps of your remote. If your TV is also from Sony, you’ll be able to control everything from the one remote handset!
Want to Live ‘Inside’ Your Movies?
If you’re a bit of an amateur movie buff and you enjoy a regular blockbuster, you don’t know what you’re missing if you haven’t experienced a modern soundbar. In particular, the HTSF200 offers ‘Virtual’ Surround Sound without the need for having speakers dotted around the room. A set up like this will make you feel like you’re inside the movie, with voices and atmospheric sounds coming at you from all over the room.
Powerful Mid-Range Sounds
The aforementioned ‘meaty’ sounds are provided by the subwoofer, but it’s not ‘all about the bass’, as a good soundbar offers good all-round sound. Quality mid-range tones are ably provided by 2 S-Force PRO front facing speakers, meaning that you’ll never struggle to hear voices, even in busy action films featuring lots of background noise.
This Sony Soundbar is a versatile beast too, as it provides an excellent and simple way to listen to your playlists streamed via bluetooth. Online platforms like Spotify, Pandora and Grooveshark offer a great way to listen to pretty much endless music, like it was meant to be heard.
