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 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

GREAT SOUND at a good price


I have had this item for close to 6 months and I have had ZERO problems with it. The sound is excellent and it really amplifies my TV experience. The control is easy to understand but a little small for my liking. This is the only thing that I have had...

Easy to use sound


Purchased this to pair with a Sony 4k TV. Soundbar uses optical or HDMI for TV input and was immediately recognized under the speaker menu on the TV. Can also be used as a splitter for multiple HDMI inputs for your TV since it has multiple HDMI ports...

Amazing sound


I was skeptical of using a sound bar for my TV sound - but I was pleasantly surprised what great sound this has. You can also stream your music through it with ease.
