Sony introduces HT-G700 3.1-channel soundbar with Dolby Atmos

Sony has a decent selection of soundbars, right from budget to high-end and now, it’s added a new mid-range model to its lineup.

The Sony HT-G700 is available in the U.S now for $600 (roughly Rs 45,300) and boasts of a wireless subwoofer, Dolby Atmos and the ability to upscale stereo audio to 7.1.2 channel surround sound. It shouldn’t be long before this model is added to Sony India’s portfolio too, which currently consists of just three soundbars which support Dolby Atmos.

The soundbar features two full-range drivers on either end or a centre speaker for voice sounds, such as dialogues in a movie.

Along with the subwoofer, the HT-G700 boasts of a total of 400W power output, according to Sony. The system supports most of the digital surround formats, including Dolby Atmos and DTS: X.

In terms of connectivity, the soundbar has a single HDMI input and output with eARC and ARC support respectively and optical audio-in. It also has Sony’s Vertical Surround Engine, to simulate the surround sound experience from a full Dolby Atmos setup.

You also get different sound modes such as Theatre, Music, Voice and Night. There’s also Bluetooth 5.0, so you can stream music from your phone directly through the soundbar.

Sony also updated its Extra Bass wireless speaker lineup with the SRS-XB43, SRS-XB33 and SRS-XB23 models. Some of the highlight features include a side, passive radiator for better bass and newly developed X-Balanced speaker for improved sound quality.

The XB43 is priced at $250 (roughly Rs 18,900); the XB33 is priced at $150 (roughly Rs 11,300); while the XB23 is priced at $100 (roughly Rs 7,500).
