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

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.

4K Video Users Beware


Just a word of warning for those who plan to connect their 4K video components to the Sony ST7 via HDMI. The Sony ST7's max video output is 1080P. All video passing thru that has video quality over 1080P will be dropped to 1080P. I verified this with...

I expected more for the Price


When I saw this soundbar at the store I was impressed but forgot they were using a cd that was made by Sony. In real life the sound isn't the best and for the price paid I would have expected it. I'm disapointed that Sony didn't think of allowing...

Easy to set up

You can't add additional speakers

Worth the money


I did a lot of research before considering this unit. The price scared me off at first but I am glad I made the purchase. The sound is incredible for simulated surround sound. I love the option to play music from my iPhone via bluetooth.

fills a room with sound, bluetooth input, easy to set up

Better than most speaker systems


This speaker is great at about $500 less. I have always trusted Sony so I gave this a shot over the Bose soundbar at the 1300 price. I am not upset with the sound or quality. It is a little bulky but looks stylish and the wireless soundbar works...
