If you're looking to take your first step up from your TV's built-in speakers, then this Dolby Atmos soundbar deal is one you shouldn't miss. The really rather good Sony HT-G700, which we called "an affordable Atmos soundbar that's big on sound and value", is now down from its original price of £450 to just £249 at Amazon.
Sony HT-G700 Atmos soundbar
£399 £249 at Amazon (save £150)
A massive 44% saving on a soundbar and subwoofer we called "big on sound and on value... for cinematic scale and weight, there are few better soundbars at the price" under review. And just look at the price now!
The soundbar features three elliptical drivers for an overall 3.1 arrangement, boasting a total power output of 400W. It offers clarity and dynamism far beyond your TV's speakers, offering a nice weight sound with an impressive ability to deliver those immersive Atmos effects. The Sony HT-G700 can process the sound to something corresponding to either 5.1 or 7.1.2 channels for some Dolby Atmos effects – and deliver it with precision and room-filling scale.
The part you'll really feel though is that sub, when its large subwoofer kicks out the big hits when the on-screen action hots up.
There’s little set-up required with the Sony HT-G700. The soundbar and subwoofer automatically establish a wireless connection and you don’t need to do any audio calibration. There's a single HDMI input, which will pass through 4K HDR signals (including Dolby Vision) to the TV. There's also an eARC (Enhanced Audio Return Channel) compatible HDMI-out for connection to your TV.
You can control the volume of the sub on the box itself and there's even a dedicated night mode, which will reduce bass and dynamics to avoid waking your neighbours or housemates late at night.
The Sony HT-G700 is an excellent soundbar at this price. If affordable Dolby Atmos TV sound is on your shopping list, then you've just found what you need.
