Your TV might look great, but if you aren't rocking a soundbar in your setup, the audio is probably not living up to its potential. Good news: Sony is having a massive sale on an array of great soundbars, with some models over 30% off. Trust us: In one fell swoop, you'll revolutionize your at-home viewing experience.
This combo is a great pick for first-time soundbar buyers, especially at its sub-$200 price point. The included subwoofer will make punchy sounds — explosions, crashes, etc. — feel all the more real, while the bar delivers a balanced soundscape that brings movies and music to life in ways that built-in TV speakers just can't.
"One of the best items I’ve ever purchased from Amazon. I am no expert when it comes to soundbars or speakers. I contemplated for a while before coming across this item. For the price I paid I am satisfied with this item. Sound is clear and crisp... If you want a soundbar with clear sound with a sub I HIGHLY recommend buying it. BUY, BUY, BUY," said one grateful shopper.
If your budget is a little higher, score yourself 3.1-channel sound with the HT-G700. It also includes a subwoofer, and it features 4K HDR passthrough. This means you can connect your devices (Blu-ray player, game consoles, etc.) directly to the soundbar receiver, resulting in a cleaner setup and better fidelity and power all the way around.
"Best-in-class audio experience, and it enhances to next level...if you have Sony TV too. This is not another soundbar of other brands but carries 3.1 output with theater experience having Dolby Atmos sound...." said one listener. "Bluetooth connectivity is seamless, streaming Spotify songs on this soundbar outputs amazing sound. For movies, my personal recommendation is to keep the woofer behind/next to sofa, away from the soundbar, to get the Dolby experience."
The HT-A3000 is a brawny step up. While it lacks the included subwoofer for those bassy punches, it utilizes Sony's Vertical Surround Engine and 360 Spatial Audio Mapping. This means it'll automatically determine the layout and arrangement of your room to deliver the best sound configuration. It's like theater-quality audio, without the need for a theater-quality setup.
One articulate user said, "When I first paired it with my TV and 'turned up' the immersive surround sound from the built-in dual subwoofers and three front speakers, in terms of increasing the volume a considerable degree, I felt the very definition of the word immersive. It was an exhilarating and enveloping audible rush, and it was awesome! The music pouring forth really came to life! Later, when I was watching the news at a more contained and reasonable volume, I was hugely impressed with the center channel of the speaker. It pushed a clear and impressive dialogue easily heard and understood into my ears. The vocals were outstanding. Connecting to the app, the music still fills the room, and you feel really surrounded in a dancehall way."
Don't let the price scare you — trust us, the performance it delivers is worth it. The HT-A7000 is the very best that Sony has to offer in terms of soundbars, with full 7.1 surround sound performance. It supports the same Spatial Audio Mapping and Vertical Sound Engine as the A3000 while also supporting 4K HDR and 120 frame-per-second passthrough.
"My wife has always been the biggest critic of any sound system I have put in place. Her biggest complaint was not being able to hear voices clearly. This soundbar she absolutely loves because she can hear the voices more clearly and overall sound quality is fantastic!" said one happy hubby.
And the deals don't stop there. In addition to soundbars, Sony has a slew of subwoofers, rear speakers, and floor speakers on sale to help you create the ultimate home theater system.
