Voice speaker that clearly reproduces a person's voice
SRS-LSR200 has a dedicated centre voice speaker positioned between the left and right stereo speakers. It mainly outputs the sound frequencies of the voice and suppresses the influence from the left and right speakers which minimizes distortion and allows the reproduction of a crisp and clear voice.
"Voice Zoom" function to reproduce a person's voice clearly
SRS-LSR200 is equipped with a "Voice Zoom" function that detects the components of the human voice and makes it stand out. In addition to the normal stereo playback mode, it offers "Voice Zoom 1", which brings voice to the front, and "Voice Zoom 2", which emphasises high frequencies. You can switch between the modes easily using a designated button.
Passive radiators, realistically reproducing the lower register of the voice, mounted on the left and right sides of the device
By outputting the lower register of the voice from the left and right speakers and passive radiators, the voice sounds naturally and realistically.
Easy-to-use integrated TV remote control
SRS-LSR200 comes with an integrated remote to control the TV from a distance.In addition, Sony’s new handy speaker features a big volume dial and easy-to-read buttons and is drip-proof.
You can charge the speaker conveniently by simply placing it on the charging dock. A 3-hour charge allows a continuous use of the speaker for about 13 hours*4.
*4 "Voice Zoom" function off, according to JEITA standard
Intuitive and easy-to-understand set-up
Both the charging dock and the connecting cables are labelled with colour-coded numbers making the set-up truly effortless even if you’re not great with electronic equipment.
Stable wireless connectivity
The transmitter and speaker units are connected by 2.4 GHz wireless transmission one-to-one, for a low latency connection with high resistance to interference. Hear sound from the TV and the speaker simultaneously for a natural listening experience.
Pricing and availability
Sony’s wireless handy TV speaker SRS-LSR200 will go on sale in the UK and Ireland from July priced at £159 and €189.
