Keep shopping
Mono sound with no way of changing it manually. I’m sure there are tons of better choices. I used gift cards so it was basically free for me. Otherwise I would return it to get my money back.

Good performance for the price
Overall very happy with this unit that replace an old 5.1 cinema system (Sony). Good sound when the wife isn't around. A bit disappointed with the speech enhancement feature, didn't seem to make much difference. Sometimes switch between signal sources I get no sound unless I switch the unit off and on again whereupon it seems to sort itself out.

Sound we didn’t know we were missing.
When we bought our new Sony TV several weeks ago, we impulsively bought the HT-G700 soundbar. Boy, are we glad we did. It makes the sound so much richer. And it was easy to self install.

Good, but pricey
I feel it necessary to preface this review by saying I'm comparing this sound bar directly to an older Sony HT-NT5. I loved the sound of the HT-NT5, unfortunately mine died earlier this week. I immediately started looking for modern Sony options to hopefully replicate my experience.

So far I'm underwhelmed with live TV sound despite trying every sound option. It's certainly better than the TV speakers, but it's not amazing. The HT-G700 has impressed with movies and other streamed shows with good sound and impact, though I sometimes feel like voices are muffled (voice setting is on).

I suppose my biggest disappointment comes when playing music. Don't get me wrong, the G700 sounds good..... But not great. The older HT-NT5 was much more detailed, more rich and the bass was punchy without being boomy. The G700 just can't reproduce a lot of the finer detail in songs. Guitar strums/strings are muddy and blend together and other treble specific sounds just aren't there. I think I was spoiled by the HT-NT5 and it's dedicated silk dome tweeters. The G700's drivers are not up to the task in the same way with integrated tweeters.

Build quality seems good. Looks are unremarkable....which is good.

I'm happy with the connection options and the sound processing. The tech inside seems good......I suppose I just wish the quality of the components was better to enhance the sound..... especially given the price.

Perhaps I was just spoiled by the last bar, but I'd be happy with this bar if it was $399 or less, but I'm not blown away for the price.

I believe I'm going to keep the bar in hopes that more play time will break in the components and.......I honestly don't feel like doing all sound bar the research again.

I realize this review sounds pretty negative, but I do believe it's a good product that will make most people happy. I just wish it lived up to the HT-NT5.

First impressions is I have just wasted £399.00
I bought this product today, set it up and thought what have I done. The sound is distorted and every S is coming as a shh. I will be contacting John Lewis tomorrow to complain.

Do I need a receiver to operate? If so what one

  Thanks for your inquiry. Soundbars are designed to connect to a TV and provide amplification, front directed speakers, surround effects, and many with wireless subwoofers. They eliminate the need for a receiver and wired speakers.
