Sony today released the high-end 7.1-channel HT-ST7 sound bar speaker with wireless subwoofer for the lofty price of $1,299. The sleek aluminum chassis of the sound bar incorporates 9 independent speaker drivers and 7 discrete 50-watt amplifiers. Using both Dolby TrueHD and DTS-HD Master Audio decoders for high definition audio decoding, Sony claims this system delivers a master quality sound experience with deep, clean bass from its high quality dual driver wireless subwoofer. Each component is meticulously designed to deliver the best audio reproduction possible, which results in great imaging with a wide sound stage, something traditionally found only in larger component based home theaters.
The HT-ST7 sound bar was engineered in collaboration with award-winning sound engineers at Sony Pictures Studios, and redefines “movie night at home” with magnetic fluid speakers producing clear dialogue, S-Master Digital Amplifiers presenting high-quality music enhancing expressive emotions, and S-Force Pro Front Surround to reproduce even the most subtle and faintest sound effects.
Sony’s HT-ST7 sound bar serves as a perfect solution for listening to music with any mobile device. With its built-in wireless Bluetooth connection (with support for AAC and AptX) users can simply connect any mobile phone or tablet through a single press of the “Bluetooth Sync” button. Additionally, the Sony HT-ST7 incorporates OneTouch NFC (Near Field Communication) technology, enabling an instant link to music simply by touching a compatible device to the sound bar.
With its easy quick-start guide, this speaker system is simple to assemble and install. The Sony HT-ST7 sound bar speaker uses advanced technologies like Audio Return Channel (ARC) and HDMI for convenient set up with just a single cable. Unlike other comparably priced models, the HT-ST7 sound bar includes a total of 7 inputs (3 HDMI, 3 digital audio and 1 analog), making it flexible enough to support a variety of AV components.
