Introduced in the middle of September 2008 to be released soonafter in Europe, the HT-FS1 is an inexpensive 2.1 speaker system from Sony. Aimed at recent consumers of middle to high end flat panel televisions, the HT-FS1 is designed to be a drastic improvement on their smaller embedded speaker systems which are often poor due to lack of power, bass, and stereo separation. Sporting 3 HDMI in ports and a single output, the speakers, which are connected by the subwoofer unit support Dolby Digital, DTS, Dolby ProLogic, and Dual Mono. With no MSRP or release date announced, interested parties have pointed out the similarity to the HT-CT100, estimating the system will cost around $300. There is also no guarantee that the system will appear state-side.

Features
  • Speakers: 2 x satellites, 1 x subwoofer (with internal receiver and amplifier), 200W output (total system)
  • Connections: 3 HDMI inputs, one out (HDMI repeater), 3 optical inputs, analog audio options and DMPORT
