Sony HT-ST7 Sound Bar


For all the things we associate Sony with for home theater, speakers are lower down on that list. Many people scoffed when they decided to introduce a $27,000 pair of speakers, the SS-AR1, but response to them has been phenomenal. They've followed that...

Sony HT-ST7 7.1 Soundbar Review


We ran the Sony HT-ST7 Soundbar through a full barrage of measurements and listening test, even taking it apart to look at the guts. Our review revealed some big product strengths and some weaknesses.

Built-in Bluetooth and NFC ; Wireless Subwoofer ; HDMI pass-through with HD audio decoding ; IR pass-through ; Wide soundstage in Movie mode

Treble can sound too bright ; Lackluster subwoofer build quality and performance ; Dialing in sound to personal preference can be difficult

Sony HT-ST7 Soundbar Reviewed


The Sony HT-ST7 from Sony joins the already crowded sound bar market. How does it fare? It's worth a listen, according to Adrienne Maxwell.

Sony HT-ST7 review


If square speaker drivers existed then Sony would have certainly used them for the HT-ST7, a soundbar that's got more hard edges than Jason Statham and more angles than a protractor factory. Even the remote control is a perfect oblong with triangular...

Hi-res Blu-ray audio decoding; good connectivity; easy to use; powerful, controlled sound; impressive movie playback

Not cheap; music performance lacks polish; substantial size; remote control isn't backlit

Sony HT-ST7


The Sony HT-ST7 is a visually stunning sound bar with a fine feature set, but it doesn't sound as good as you'd expect at its sky-high price.

Stylish, solid build quality ; Plenty of inputs ; Built-in Bluetooth and NFC

Mediocre sound quality ; No AirPlay

love this sound bar


if you are looking for true 7.1 this isn't your soundbar, but it does do a good job of mimicking it when a movie actually is 7.1 capable (few I watch are). the bar really booms and I love the sound from it.

Loving it!


Replaced my old Boss 321 system and I was pleasantly surprised to find that I prefer the sound of this bar to the 321. Compact, powerful, crisp highs..... Great price. Adding one to my shop TV as well.

If you have a larger room save your money. The tv sounds just as loud as the Sony sound bar. I have the volume pegged. I am going to go back & hook up my old surround system. There is no comparison.

Amazing soind


I went in looking for a surround sound system, and ended up leaving with a sound bar. I had my doubts as I always have loved surround sound with speakers behind me. This thing is amazing for sound and fills the whole room! Amazing product

Easy set up and can fill a big room with sound


This unit is easy to install and provides excellent sound. I went to buy the Yamaha but switch to this unit after hearing the store demo. I placed this unit on my main TV in the Great room (60x35) to provide sound for my 75 inch Samsung 4K TV. The unit...
