“These new Soundbar type Home Theatre have been launched keeping in mind the shift from Home Theatre to Soundbar globally. During a recent survey, it was observed that 90% of the people use Home Theatre through DTH, smartphone, pen-drive or disc. It has also been observed that 36% of conventional Home Theatre users are not satisfied with their system because of the complicated set-up and messy cables. With the new Soundbar type Home Theatre, Sony will be able to cater to this demand very well,” as per Sony.
