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

Too tinny


Too much mid range. You can turn the base up, but not turn the mid ranges down or the highs up. Needs an equalization feature.

Just as good as Bose or better.


Must get flagship bar. It's just as good as my Bose . Perfect size under the Sony 75 TV . Looks clean too .

Consumer review by: GoEagles997 (



I saw the original model (HT-ST5) & always wanted this thing, but at the price, it was WAY too expensive. It came hundreds in prices before I finally got one. It was worth it. When a weapon fires, or a loud car passes by playing in a movie, you...

Not as good as in the store


Overall I would say this is an average product. I am not sure if it is just our room but the overall sound quality is not the same as what we heard in the store. We purposefully bought the top of the line in this sound bar category yet after listening...
