Small for shipping, big in sound

The HT-SF200 is an all-in-one soundbar with built-in subwoofer. Sony went to great lengths to give it a full sound, but with a smaller footprint. Because it is smaller than conventional soundbars, it's also far more energy efficient to ship.

A stylish body with rich sound, in a smaller package

Sony cares about both user experience and the environment. The ingenious design sounds great and is over 50% smaller —both the unit and its packaging, minimising resource consumption and moving closer to our goal of a zero environmental footprint. 

The HT-SF200’s small size is big for sustainability

Good design, for people and the environment

Eco-efficiency was a key design goal for the HT-SF200. The aim was to create an all-in-one soundbar with full sound and a reduced product volume, to significantly improve efficiency in logistics and shipping.

Small and appealing design dimensions

The simple one-box design is easier to set up and, compared to soundbars with separate subwoofers, the product volume is reduced by nearly 80%.

Cutting out unnecessary bulk

The HT-SF200 weighs only 2.3kg—as much as 65% less than conventional subwoofer-soundbar separates, and the small form integrates unobtrusively with your room décor.

As size goes down, shipping efficiency goes up

The volume per packaged product (packaged condition) is reduced by about 59%, so the number of products per pallet is increased. This contributes to approximately 63% CO2 reduction per product and greater handling efficiency during transport.

Innovative acoustic design for powerful bass

Sony devised novel solutions for rich and powerful bass in a compact one-box soundbar. Special sound channels, from the integrated woofer to bass ports at both ends of the bar, deliver high-quality sound from a discreet and stylish component.

The internal subwoofer was the key

In response to the interior matching, space-saving, and free-layout demands of the still-growing soundbar market, we aimed to not only internalise the subwoofer, but to do so in about half the existing space. There are several issues with internalising the subwoofer, including that major mechanical vibration be suppressed in order for the bass to emanate smoothly without affecting the other speakers. The large amp output required by the subwoofer must also be provided efficiently from a small-capacity power supply. We addressed and solved those issues one by one.

Miniaturisation and the internalisation of the subwoofer have also allowed us to achieve environmental goals such as economies in the use of materials and more efficient transport. We intend to continue this kind of environmentally conscious design going forward.
