The LSPX-S2 replaces the LSPX-S1, which Sony launched at £699/US$799. Sony has dropped the price of its second-generation mood light and speaker to £550, although the company has not yet confirmed pricing for the US. The device should launch in May 2019. The LSPX-S2 looks much like its predecessor with its long glass stem and its LED light, but it now has a more bulbous bottom akin to more traditional lamps. Sony has still not added AI integration or voice control like Google Assistant though.

The LSPX-S2 weighs 1.1 kg and measures of 277 x 90 mm. The device has a 35 mm speaker with an 11 W output, which the company claims will provide well-balanced and powerful midrange tones. There is also a passive radiator that delivers bass from the bottom of the base. The LED has 32 adjustable brightness levels and can offer two candlelight modes when you want a warmer light.

The LSPX-S2 also supports Bluetooth, DLNA, NFC, Spotify Connect and Wi-Fi. Sony has incorporated a Push & Play button, which starts your last played Spotify track when pressed.

There is also multi-room functionality, which allows you to play the same song or different songs on up to ten compatible Sony speakers via the Sony | Music Center app. The app is available for Android or iOS, from which you can control the LSPX-S2’s brightness and set a sleep timer. Sony claims that the LSPX-S2 has up to 8 hours of battery life.
