Sony Electronics Singapore announced the HT-S400 2.1ch soundbar, a living room audio companion for cinematic sound and audio enjoyment.

The HT-S400 uses Dolby Digital and Sony’s S-Force Pro Front Surround for virtual surround sound competence via its front-facing speakers. The rectangular X-Balanced Speaker Unit (also on the front) comes with a separated Notch Edge to control the stress on the diaphragm. Together, these features put the viewer and listener front and centre of the cinematic experience, without losing clarity or impact in audio.

HT-S400 also comes with a self-standing wireless subwoofer unit (160mm). Together, the sum of its parts has a power output rating of 330W, speaking to the HT-S400’s audio prowess.

If you have a compatible Sony Bravia TV, the HT-S400 is capable of receiving sound wirelessly, so there are fewer cables required for connection and setup.

For further ease of use, the soundbar also has a remote control that comes with Voice Mode and Night Mode toggles. Voice Mode forces the soundbar to place emphasis on dialogue and conversations in movies, while Night Mode is for users who wish to watch the telly “without waking the house” (we presume that just means the soundbar gets a hard ceiling on its dB levels with Night Mode toggled on).

According to its specifications list, the soundbar has optical audio input and Bluetooth 5.0. There’s also a USB-A slot for updating the soundbar’s firmware.

The Sony HT-S400 soundbar retails at S$799 from July 2022 onwards. It can be found at select retail shops and online stores.
