‘Powerful and muscular room-filling Dolby Atmos from a single soundbar’

September 2021

FEATURES

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.

Up-firing speakers


Reflect sound off the ceiling for immersive overhead audio. Combines with Vertical Surround Engine to give you an even more atmospheric overhead sound experience.

Beam tweeters


Bounce sound off the side walls and expand surround sound to give you an immersive experience that goes beyond the size of your TV. Combines with S-Force PRO Front Surround for even wider surround sound.

Built-in dual subwoofer


Delivers high sound pressure for clear, deep bass. This has been achieved by expanding the area of the diaphragm and the size of the subwoofer (X-Balanced Speaker Unit).

Front speakers


Provide high quality sound with less distortion and high vocal clarity from an X-Balanced Speaker Unit.

X-Balanced Speaker Unit


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[FN|Requires download of Sony | Music Center app. Subscription to compatible online music service and third party terms, conditions, account and fees may apply.

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.

Get a fuller, richer sound with a wireless subwoofer and rear speakers


An optional wireless subwoofer allows a built-in dual subwoofer in the soundbar to handle bass and vocals with the optional wireless subwoofer focusing on low range sound. For even more cinematic thrills with sound directly behind you, add our optional wireless rear speakers.

SA-SW5 optional subwoofer
