Sharp Corporation of Australia has introduced the company’s first 2.1 channel Sound Bar System, the HT-SB200, offering advanced audio technology and easy setup to enhance a home entertainment system.

The slim and stylish HT-SB200 is designed to simulate surround sound without the added bulk and cost of a full blown home theatre system. With its low profile design, the model blends with the popular AQUOS LCD televisions for an overall sophisticated look.

Built for at-home use and ideal for wall mounting, the compact HT-SB200 encases left and right integrated speakers, an integrated powerful subwoofer, adjustable bass, treble and sub-level options for a truly unique surround sound experience. The unit can also be placed on a television stand with included mounting plates and adjustable feet to straddle the base.

The HT-SB200 also combines advanced HDSS sound technology with SRS WOW HD decoder for a realistic listening experience with a deeper and more natural bass response.

For flexibility and simple setup, the sound bar features dual audio inputs, left and right RCA jacks and a 3.5mm sub-mini jack which allows for an additional audio source including an MP3 player. Also included is a slim remote control, a programmed equaliser and an auto on/off button to save energy. The unit is energy efficient, with 0.6W or less power consumption in stand-by mode.

The Sharp HT-SB200 is available now from leading electrical retailers and is priced at RRP $299.
