Sony has launched the HT-G700, a new partially-wireless 400 watt (W) soundbar system rated for up to 7.1.2-channel audio reproduction and effective room coverage. It supports standards such as Dolby Atmos and DTS:X while using its HDMI eARC, and also incorporates a standalone sub-woofer for bass.

Sony has announced the HT-G700, a new soundbar that also incorporates a wireless sub-woofer to ensure its bass is as clear and deep as possible. This whole system is rated for 400W of power and 3.1-channel (although the OEM claims it also upscales up to 7.1.2) audio.

This new soundbar is capable of connecting to a TV, console or other device via just 1 HDMI cable. In this mode, it can support eARC with Dolby enhancements such as Atmos, TrueHD and Digital Plus.

It also includes Sony's S-Force PRO tech, which causes external speakers to suit larger TVs (of 55 inches or more). The system can also use Bluetooth to stream a user's music for them.

The HT-G700's bar has a center speaker equipped with a Vertical Surround Engine, which, according to its maker, should help it achieve home theater-level coverage. It is priced at US$599.99, and can be ordered from outlets such as Amazon and Best Buy from now.

I became a professional writer and editor shortly after graduation. My degrees are in biomedical sciences; however, they led to some experience in the biotech area, which convinced me of its potential to revolutionize our health, environment and lives in general. This developed into an all-consuming interest in more aspects of tech over time: I can never write enough on the latest electronics, gadgets and innovations. My other interests include imaging, astronomy, and streaming all the things. Oh, and coffee.
