Sony has introduced the flagship soundbar (HT-A7000), which it said enables users to discover a whole new level of immersion. Surround yourself in absolute realism.
The HT-A7000 has 7.1.2 channels, two up-firing speakers for overhead sound, two beam tweeters and five front speakers for wider surround and a built-in dual subwoofer for deep bass. Coupled with Vertical Surround Engine and S-Force PRO Front Surround, the HT-A7000 creates virtual surround sound that comes from all around, so users can fully enjoy the thrill of Dolby Atmos and DTS:X.
The HT-A7000 comes with two up-firing speakers that reflect sound off the ceiling for overhead sound. The up-firing speakers, when combined with the Vertical Surround Engine, gives an even more atmospheric overhead sound experience.
Beam tweeters bounce sound off the side walls and expand the surround sound to give you an immersive experience that goes beyond the size of your TV. When this is combined with S-Force PRO Front Surround it gives users even wider surround sound for a fully immersive experience.
For even deeper bass, add an optional wireless subwoofer. Having two types of subwoofer allows the built-in subwoofer in the HT-A7000 to handle bass and vocals with the optional wireless subwoofer focusing on low range sound.
For rich bass, add the SA-SW5 subwoofer with 300W of deep, rich bass from a 180mm driver with passive radiator. Or, opt for the SA-SW3 subwoofer with 200W of sound from a compact bass reflex subwoofer with a 160mm driver.
For even more cinematic thrills with sound directly behind you, add the SA-RS3S wireless rear speakers with a total 100W of wider surround sound and wall mount capability.
With the soundbar, users can easily access popular music services like Spotify and stream their favourite albums and playlists using Chromecast, Spotify Connect or Apple AirPlay 2 on the HT-A7000. Users can stream wirelessly from their smartphone via Bluetooth technology or use the built in Wi-Fi to stream music from devices.
The soundbar is compatible with Google Assistant-enabled devices with Chromecast built-in and Amazon Alexa-enabled devices. Just add the HT-A7000 soundbar to a speaker group using the Google Home app to start playing music, change the volume or many other functions using just your voice.
