Sony HT-A7000 review: A fully loaded soundbar experience


There's no shortage of capable home theater soundbars out there, but few models attempt -- let alone succeed -- at doing as much as Sony's HT-A7000.

“Great sound, ease of use, and a big list of features make it hard to beat.”

Sony HT-A7000 review: a next-gen Atmos soundbar that’s (almost) perfect for gaming


But there's one downside for Xbox Series X or S owners.

Fantastic sound as a standalone unit ; Two HDMI 2.1 passthrough inputs ; Wide support for codecs and third-party features

Doesn’t pass through VRR or ALLM ; Adding subwoofer and rear surrounds gets wildly more expensive ; No granular EQ adjustments

Sony’s new flagship soundbar, the HT-A7000, delivers phenomenal audio quality. It also has two HDMI 2.1 inputs that can pass through 4K gaming at 120Hz from an Xbox Series X or PlayStation 5.

Sony HT-A7000 Review


The Sony HT-A7000 is a premium 7.1.2 setup released in 2021. It's advertised to support S-Force Pro Front Surround and Vertical Surround Engine technologies for ...

Lots of wireless playback options. Good stereo soundstage. Room correction feature. Dialogue enhancement feature.

Doesn't get very loud. Lacks low-bass.

The Sony HT-A7000 soundbar is satisfactory for mixed usage. Thanks to its balanced, neutral sound profile, it's suitable for most types of audio content, and there's even a little extra punch in the bass. However, it struggles to reproduce the deep...

Sony's Dolby Atmos Soundbar Is the Best of the Best—for a Price


Sony's HT-A7000 is impressive as hell, but it's also more expensive than the competition.

Sounds amazing. One of the best Atmos soundbars with simulated height. Has all the bells and whistles. Extremely future-proof and buildable over time.

Review: Sony HT-A7000 | Excellent Atmos Sound Sony HT-A7000


Sony's new flagship soundbar, HT-A7000, is packed with features that will provide perfect surround sound. But it costs!

The Sony HT-A7000 projects a large, clear and distinct sound picture, with a convincing surround effect. Plus for user-friendly on-screen menu!

Subwoofer is optional, which makes the total investment costly.

With a suggested retail price of GBP 1,199, the Sony HT-A7000 is an expensive soundbar, but it definitely provides sound value for money: Here you get a large and convincing soundscape on both film and music. The surround sound is solid, and we are...

Sony HT-A7000


Well-featured ; Excellent sonic performance ; Strong bass for a single bar ; Terrific music performance

Needs plenty of space ; Adding subwoofer and rear channels is expensive ; Standalone bar is pricey

A terrific performance across a range of sources, the Sony HT-A7000 is a sonic delight with movie and music

Sony HT-A7000 review: a Dolby Atmos soundbar that's both big and clever


The Sony HT-A7000 delivers huge sound (and even good bass) from a single box – and has future-proofed connectivity as a bonus

Punchy, expansive sound ; Real height and width to Atmos ; Extensive specification

Lacks complete HDMI 2.1 feature-set ; Oddly disjointed looks ; Not the easiest soundbar to accommodate

The Sony HT-7000 might be expensive, but it's serious impressive. The tall and impossibly wide Dolby Atmos audio with tight sound positioning is as good as we've heard from any system without rear speakers, and it even manages a good dose of bass. The...

Sony HT-A7000 review


Powerful and muscular room-filling Dolby Atmos from a single soundbar

Robust low-end ; Excellent Atmos performance ; Feature-rich

No VRR or ALLM at launch ; EQ controls would be nice ; Slightly confused styling

A powerful, musical and immersive single soundbar that succeeds where many multi-speaker systems fail

Sony HT-A7000 soundbar review: All-in-one immersion


Sony's all-in-one top-end soundbar solution for 2021 - with built-in woofers, as a 7.1.2 channel setup - has seriously immersive audio capability.

Extremely wide and high soundstage ; 7.1.2 channel output for successful immersive delivery ; 4K/HDR HDMI passthrough via HDMI eARC out ; Two HDMI inputs for multiple source direct connections

Immersive AE can lose its way with dynamic changes ; Built-in bass can be too 'thumpy' ; Reflective top ; No subwoofer included (but can add separate)

As an all-in-one solution, this soundbar is adept at delivering expansive and immersive sound quality from numerous sources. It'll put other standalone Dolby Atmos soundbars, such as the Sonos Arc, to task. But the Sony's Immersive AE and somewhat...
