The soundbar lets you enjoy Sound Field Optimization with or without optional speakers. Activate the simple calibration process during initial setup or from the home menu.
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 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.
Reflect sound off the ceiling for immersive overhead audio. Combines with Vertical Surround Engine to give you an even more atmospheric overhead sound experience.
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.
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).
Provide high quality sound with less distortion and high vocal clearity 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 maximizes the diaphragm area for more punchy bass. It also reduces driver excursion while maintaining sound pressure, resulting in less distortion and greater vocal clarity.
Movies and games feel so real
Support for 8K1, 4K/1202 passthrough, and Dolby Vision brings vivid visuals and quality sound to shows, movies, and fast paced video game play.
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 recognizing 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.
A = Expanded audio dynamics (Strings and whisper-quiet subtleties)
B = Restored high frequencies (Acoustic and vocal instrument realism)

Omnidirectional Block Design
