  • Bring your favourite TV shows and movies to life with immersive surround sound from Sony’s new 3.1 channel HT-G700 soundbar, featuring Dolby Atmos® and a new, dedicated centre speaker for clearer dialogue 
  • Enjoy powerful 5.1 channel surround sound with a sleek design thanks to the HT-S20R

Sony today introduced two new soundbars with the launch of the HT-G700 and HT-S20R. The new models are perfect for enjoying TV and movies with powerful and immersive sound in the comfort of your own home.

Cinematic surround sound and clear dialogue

The HT-G700 is a 3.1 channel Dolby Atmos® and DTS:X soundbar that couples powerful surround sound with clear dialogue so you can lose yourself completely in your favourite TV programmes and movies. 

Hear sound from all directions with up to 7.1.2 channel surround sound. The HT-G700 includes Sony’s Vertical Surround Engine, meaning that the HT-G700’s three front speakers, combined with Sony’s signal processing, enable sound placements that can envelop you, in both vertical and horizontal planes. The signal processing has also been improved to deliver surround sound to a wider area[1]. Plus, by selecting the Immersive AE (Audio Enhancement) button, 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.

In addition, the HT-G700 offers a dedicated centre speaker so that vocals can be heard clearly, whether it’s quick-fire dialogue in your favourite TV shows or whispered lines in a Hollywood movie. It’s also great for music, creating a rich, detailed listening experience. Furthermore, the HT-G700 includes finely tuned S-Force PRO that uplifts sound to fit larger TVs (over 55 inches) so you can get fully immersed into what you’re watching.

Choose your perfect setting

The sound or audio mode best suited to what you’re listening to can be selected directly via a button on the remote control. It allows you to get deeper into movies with Cinema mode and hear every detail of your favourite tracks in Music mode, there are also additional Voice mode and Night mode settings. Voice mode tailors sound settings to accentuate speech, so you won’t miss a word and Night mode optimises the sound balance so you can hear clearly, even at low volume levels. 

The HT-G700 comes with a powerful, wireless subwoofer that delivers a deeper, richer bass sound. In addition, a larger interior cabinet creates much deeper and richer bass[2]. Finally, set-up with a TV is quick and easy via Bluetooth® or HDMI eARC/ARC. 


The HT-S20R is an affordable yet powerful 5.1 channel soundbar. Housed in a sleek design that belies its capabilities, it offers 400W of power, two rear speakers and subwoofer. Designed to perfectly fit alongside TVs, the HT-S20R is also easy to connect to your TV via HDMI, optical or analogue input. You can also enjoy music via Bluetooth® connection or USB.  

The HT-G700 will be available from May 2020 priced at approximately £450 and €540 for IE. 

The HT-S20R will be available from May 2020 priced at approximately £250 and €300 for IE.
