Sony HT-ST9 7 – Excellent sound bar with a few niggles here and there

Used with a sonia bravia television. This sony sound bar is a smart looking piece of audio equipment but sizeable, measuring 113cm length x 13cm depth x 9cm height. It can be shelf or wall mounted. In addition there is a large subwoofer, itself measuring 42cm depth x 40cm height x 42cm width. I have placed the sound bar on a shelf of a tv cabinet beneath a 40” television which is not intrusive. If the television screen were smaller, i feel the size of the sound bar would be out of proportion. The subwoofer sits out of sight behind the tv stand. The sound bar front may be left to reveal the seven speakers or covered using the black grille provided. Instructions provided are in two parts comprising a clear startup guide and a more comprehensive booklet of operating instructions. The sound bar and subwoofer each require a mains connection but the two are connected wirelessly, thus doing away with a further cable connection.

Excellent sound bar with a few niggles here and there. Home cinema systems with the traditional set-up are a staple diet in a home cinema set-up. The trouble has been the amount of space that is required for an array of speakers, subwoofer and amplifier along with the wiring. The sound bar came out of a need to provide some of that home cinema experience but in a compact form. Some of the first attempts were to say at least pitiful but yamaha became the forerunner in sound bar technology. Roll on to 2015 and we are using improved set-ups and sound bar technology has moved on. There have been reports that the traditional av receiver is declining in popularity whilst sound bar sales are on the up. Some purists may argue that isn’t so and will probably slate off sound bars for not offering a true cinematic experience. So what’s so very special about the ht-st9 that could make you think about ditching the av receiver altogether?.Hopefully with this review you’ll get an inkling of what the ht-st9 is about and what it is capable of. Here are the specifications for the Sony HT-ST9 7:

  • Enter your model number
