Supreme surround sound from our flagship soundbar

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. With Vertical Surround Engine and S-Force PRO Front Surround, HT-A7000 creates virtual surround sound that comes from all around you so you can fully enjoy the thrill of Dolby Atmos® and DTS:X®.

Experience sound from above 

Thanks to Sony’s virtual surround technology, the soundbar can position sound in vertical space – so you can experience 3D audio without the need for in-ceiling speakers. As well as Dolby Atmos and DTS:X, Vertical Surround Engine lends a more realistic, multi-dimensional sound to other formats too.

Surround made simple 

Using front speakers only, Sony’s unique digital sound field processing technology virtually reproduces the surround sound field, with audio coming at you from both sides. You can enjoy rich, cinematic surround sound without cluttering your living space.

Sophisticated speaker technology

Sit back and enjoy room-filling acoustics with two up-firing speakers for overhead sound, two beam tweeters and five front speakers for wider surround plus a subwoofer for deep bass.

The up-firing speakers, built-in subwoofer and front speaker feature an X-Balanced Speaker Unit. The unique rectangular shape of these speakers maximises the diaphragm area for more punchy bass. It also reduces driver excursion while maintaining sound pressure, resulting in less distortion and greater vocal clarity. 

Immerse yourself in supreme music quality

Enjoy music the way the artists truly intended with High-Resolution Audio for crystal clear precision. Or discover a new way of listening with 360 Reality Audio for a truly immersive live concert or studio session experience. With the HT-A7000, your music comes to life like never before.

Real-time restoration of all your compressed files

Using Edge-AI (Artificial Intelligence), DSEE Extreme™ (Digital Sound Enhancement Engine) upscales compressed digital music files in real time. Dynamically recognising instrumentation, musical genres, and individual elements of each song, such as vocals or interludes, it restores the high-range sound lost in compression for a richer, more complete listening experience.

Movies and games feel so real

See vivid scenes full of real life colour and depth. All of the original picture quality is preserved when played through the HT-A7000 soundbar so you’ll be completely immersed in movies. Gaming is also much more thrilling and realistic as HT-A7000 supports latest formats.

Even more immersion with BRAVIA Acoustic Center Sync

When connected to a BRAVIA TV with Acoustic Center Sync, both the soundbar and the TV become the centre speaker in your home cinema system. Furthermore, connecting the soundbar with optional wireless speakers, the TV speaker plays the centre channel role with your soundbar as part of the 360 Spatial Sound Mapping setup. This enables sound to precisely match what's on the screen for a truly immersive experience.

Sound perfectly matches action

With Acoustic Centre Sync, you'll hear dialogue from exactly where the character is standing in the scene. Action and sound are precisely aligned so your viewing becomes much more immersive.
