IF you’re in the market for a fuss-free, space-saving add-on to your television, soundbars are the answer – and if you don’t want to go overboard, there’s the Sony HT-G700, announced a few months ago and available now.
Immersive sound in your living room is what Sony promises with the HT-G700, which features a 3.1ch Dolby Atmos/DTS:X system.
According to Sony, “The HT-G700 includes Immersive Audio Enhancement, which provides an upgraded surround experience, seamlessly enveloping listeners with up to 7.1.2 channel surround sound. The three front speakers, combined with Sony’s signal processing, enables sound placements that can envelop you in all directions, providing an experience that carries the user away into the world of movies and music though the latest technology.
“This new signal processing is also advanced to deliver surround sound to a wider area. Furthermore, the finely tuned S-Force PRO for HT-G700 uplifts sound to fit a wider TV screen height (over 55-inch), enabling viewers to relive moments in newfound clarity and depth.
“Plus, by selecting the Immersive AE (Audio Enhancement) button on the remote, the HT-G700 can also upscale even regular stereo audio to up to 7.1.2 surround sound so every TV show and movie gets the surround sound treatment.”
Sound modes can be selected from the remote handset or directly, tailored to the source or your requirements.
The HT-G700 system, which includes a well-muscled, wireless subwoofer, is now available in Malaysia at Sony Stores KLCC and The Curve, Sony Store Online, Sony flagship store on Lazada and Sony authorised dealers, with recommended selling price of RM2,299.
