Picked-up the SONY HT-A7000 soundbar, SA-RS5 rear surrounds & SA-SW5 sub. during SONY’s pre-Xmas promotion to partner existing SONY Bravia XR 4K UHD TV. Combined with price match offer, saved over £900- on SONY UK MSRP.
Despite it’s class leading connectivity, functionality & sonic performance - particularly with respect to movies & TV - i doubt that i’d be willing to part with much more if I was shopping around now. And probably not at SONY’s current prices.
Although complex movie scenes, dialogue & soundtracks are handled with aplomb, i do think there are a few soundbar & sub. options, a couple of them for significantly less, that offer slightly better replay of stereo or multi-channel music.
