Sony HT-A7000 soundbar review: All-in-one immersion

The soundbar, which is 1.3m long, has a 7.1.2 channel setup - meaning seven speakers, one built-in woofer (not separate), and twin upfiring outputs. (image credit: Pocket-lint)
In addition to the HDMI eARC out, there are two HDMI inputs to handle all your sources direct. It'll passtrhrough 4K120/HDR compatible too (but no VRR/ALLM). (image credit: Pocket-lint)
Predominantly a plastic shell - which is a bit too reflective - the A7000 has a front metal grille and fabric-covered ends for the up- and side-firing speakers. (image credit: Pocket-lint)
There's a display behind the front grille, which is useful for knowing sources, volume adjustment, and so forth. You can turn this off it you wish. (image credit: Pocket-lint)
The 'bar can handle Atmos and DTS:X object-based formats. On-screen display can tell you the source type and channels used, too. (image credit: Pocket-lint)
As an all-in-one soundbar, this Sony is adept at delivering immersive sound quality. It'll put other standalone Atmos soundbars, like the Sonos Arc, to task. (image credit: Pocket-lint)
