Sony HT-G700 review

 

The Sony HT-G700 is an affordable Atmos soundbar that's big on sound and value

Big, weighty sound ; Impressive Atmos effect ; Solid and stylish

Lack of crispness and clarity ; No streaming functionality

The Sony HT-G700 is big on sound and on value – for cinematic scale and weight, there are few better soundbars at the price

Sony HT-G700 Soundbar review

 

The Sony HT-G700 leads its features on delivering “cinematic surround sound” from a 3.1-channel Dolby Atmos/DTS:X soundbar and wireless subwoofer. Physically, those three channels face forward and have nothing to do with surround nor the height...

Compact Atmos/DTS:X bar Immersive AE for lesser signals Bluetooth for TV and music

No dedicated height/surround drivers Height/surround claims overstated

Sony’s 3.1-channel soundbar delivers TV and movie sound respectably, and music averagely. It’s not class-leading at the price, and the claims for delivering virtual height and surround are overstated, but it’s a nice little soundbar that will perfectly...

Sony HT-G700 review: Virtually irresistible

 

Sony has tasked its new soundbar with achieving the near-impossible: Creating the immersive experience of a home theater, without the many speakers that typically work in unison to deliver that kind of sound. To add to the challenge, Sony attempted to...

Simple setup Compact design Stellar sound for music Effective virtual Dolby Atmos

Lacks Wi-Fi connectivity Not quite as immersive as true surround sound

The Sony HT-G700 is a value for its price, offering great sound for both music and movies while doing so in a minimalist package. While its technology commendably compensates for its lack of true surround sound, it doesn’t totally make up for the...

Sony's Dolby Atmos soundbar is excellent for home theater and music even though it lacks "true" height effects.

Sony HT-G700 review: This Atmos- and DTS:X-enabled soundbar boasts a trifecta of virtual 3D modes, but no Wi-Fi

 

Its arsenal of virtual 3D modes is impressive, but without Wi-Fi, the HT-G700 is missing a bevy of key features given its price tag.

Support for virtual 3D modes from Dolby, DTS, and Sony ; Crisp, punchy sound ; Easy setup ; Night and voice enhancer modes

Virtual 3D modes sound harsh at times ; No Wi-Fi support ; Remote is tricky to use

The Sony HT-G700 offers an embarrassment of riches as far as virtual 3D audio engines are concerned; indeed, if you ever wanted the opportunity to stack the virtual 3D sound technology of Dolby, DTS, and Sony against each other, this versatile soundbar...

SONY'S NEW BAR PACKS BIG SOUND INTO A VERY SMALL PACKAGE

 

While other Dolby Atmos soundbars are finding new ways to add more speakers, Sony has taken a different tack: Atmos virtualization. Instead of loading up speakers that bounce sound off your walls for sonic immersion, bars like Sony's new HT-G700 use...

Clear, detailed sound Slim and simple design Impressive Dolby Atmos virtualization

Not upgradeable No WiFi Lack of height speakers limits Atmos immersion

Sony’s HT-G700 sounds quite good, offering a surprisingly expansive soundstage for everything from music to Dolby Atmos content. It offers future-proofing features like eARC, and supports every sound format you could want, all in a decidedly small form...

Consumer review (richersounds.com)

I can't believe all the positive reviews!

 

Yes it works, yes it decodes Atmos, 5.1 etc. But does it sound good? Not really and definitely not worth the money. Some background to help explain. I have been looking for a replacement for my (very) old Sony 5.1 system and am very tempted by the...

Great sound from the Sony soundbar

 

I bought this as a replacement for another brand that developed a fault. I spoke to the manager of the Maidstone store (Ben), and took his advice to buy the Sony. It was just a bit more expensive but definitely worth it. The Sony has a few more...
