Sony Releases HT-G700 Dolby Atmos / DTS:X Soundbar

The Sony HT-G700 is 3.1-channel soundbar with wireless subwoofer that upscales audio to 7.1.2 surround sound and produces vertical audio.

7.1.2-channel Virtual Surround Sound

Sony today released a new home theater soundbar with wireless subwoofer, model HT-G700 priced at $599. The 3.1-channel system has three speakers across the front which work in conjunction with a software based Vertical Surround Engine to capture Dolby Atmos and DTS:X sound effects without any rear speakers. Sony claims its signal processing reproduces “vertical” audio, creating virtual surround sound that seems to come from all around you.

HT-G700 Soundbar (SA-G700 is model name just for soundbar)

With the same 400-watts of total power and nearly matching dimensions, the HT-G700 appears to replace the HT-Z9F soundbar from 2018, which cost $899. The new HT-G700 for 2020 improves signal processing to deliver surround sound to a wider home theater area. Additionally, finely tuned S-Force PRO technology uplifts sound to fit larger TV screen heights (over 55 inches), so viewers can enjoy a more immersive experience. 

 Rear ports include optical-in, HDMI-in, HDMI-out (TV eARC/ARC) and USB port for software updates.

The HT-G700 includes a dedicated center speaker, which ensures vocal clarity, whether it’s quick-fire TV dialogue or whispered movie lines. This feature also enhances music to offer a detailed and intimate listening experience.  In addition, with Sony’s Immersive Audio Enhancement, regular stereo audio can be upscaled to a 7.1.2 sound experience – so every TV show and movie sounds exceptional. 

Connectivity

Using the HDMI eARC/ARC port, only one HDMI cable is needed to send audio and control information from your TV. The HD-G700 supports 4K HDR 18 Gbps pass through and HDCP2.2/HDCP2.3, along with the latest home theater formats including Dolby Vision, HDR10 and Hybrid Log Gamma. Plus, customers can also stream music wirelessly via Bluetooth 5.0.

Wireless subwoofer (model SA-WG700) offers flexible placement options.
