Most reviews are very subjective without any testing data. I read and trust more in RTINGS as they provide real testing data. It is interesting that A7000 is worse than Sony HT-ST5000 from their recent review. From their test, A7000 is another junk. They are testing HT-A9 and will publish the result soon. It is really interesting to see how good or bad it is.

PSA: You should usually plug the PS5 into HDMI port 4 on most Sony BRAVIA’s because on those TVs only HDMI ports 3 and 4 are HDMI 2.1 compatible, and since HDMI port 3 is the only EARC port, that only leaves HDMI port 4 for other HDMI 2.1 devices I.e. the PS5.

What the HELL are you doing with a 25' foot acoustically treated room!?! Are you starting a Tech-Church? Usually when you have 25' you just let it ride and get the openness with big speakers that 8' ceilings can't give, and otherwise are limited in 8' standard rooms(Klipschorn for one).

Hey Linus Why don’t you get Sony HT-A9 for review. This Sony HT-A7000 is SUCK compare to HT-A9. I watch Andrew Robinson reviewed this HT-A9 4 speakers while you review this moderate soundbar. Go get it Linus!!! HT-A9 is more amazing and excite than HT-A7000 even than any other products in market right now. A9 is able to simulate 12 phantom speakers with just 4 small speakers. It’s amazing magic of sound that you missed to reviews it. Shame on… Andrew Robinson review HT-A9 link https://youtu.be/eHcjvdGbaa0

For this kind of price, especially if you want an actual surround sound system without dealing with a receiver and if space is availalbe you should get the Nakamichi 9.2.4 surround sound system. Comes with a powerful soundbar, two subwoofers, and four surround speakers with built in Dolby Atmos for around $1,400.00. I use it for my home theater and it shakes the walls.

The only thing that I can see wrong about it is that it's too big. How are you supposed to fit this under your TV? That's already a huge TV and it doesn't fit between the feet and it's slightly too tall.

I've been waiting for this ever since I picked up the HTST-5000. Fantastic sound, but year after year disappointed no rear speakers were ever made for it. I just ordered the A7000 at Best Buy.
