It lacks adequate channel separation in spite of being a 7.2.1 Dolby Atmos System.
repair. They called today and told me that Sony's engineering wants my unit sent back to them. The person on the phone told them that they have seen quite a few of them in for repair and all having the same issues.
If your thinking about purchasing I would recommend you wait or look at another Atmos bar at this time.
I sent everything back to United Audio. I've been without the soundbar now for over a month. I've called Sony and United Audio and no one seems to be able to tell me what is going to happen next. Hoping they just refund me so I can buy something else. SONY IF YOUR LISTENING YOUR CUSTOMER SERVICE SUCKS!!!!!!!
Update: sony issued me complete refund via check. No option for repair. Who does that in 2017 unless there is a problem they can't fix.
DTS is now supported via firmware update. Updated to 4 stars. After using this daily for for a good amount of time, I feel that the AV Receiver like features and sound performance is still one of best for a soundbar, especially with the DTS update. If they are able to update it so that we can use additional speakers as surround then this would be perfect.
I moved the setup into a smaller room with lower ceiling, essentially a 10x10 box, and it sounded much better. While I still stand by my 3 star rating, based on the performance in a normal living room compared to it's price point, I did wanted to note that in a smaller space this system is actually quite impressive. Given the right space to allow for the sound to bounce properly, it did feel more immersive. Not a total sphere of sound, but more like a front half sphere. The Atmos speakers did a better job of bouncing the sound on top and I heard clearer distinct sounds as if there were coming from the sides. A good example was chapter 8 of Mission Impossible Rouge Nation, the water scene. I really did thought the water sound was coming from all directions in front of me. Following that scene, I felt as if the echoing was coming from my room. I also noticed that while it is loud in room, the sound is more contained compared to an actual surround sound set up. Watching a movie won't disturb anyone else in the house as much. If you're looking to use this in a smaller space then I'd give it 4 stars. It's still pricey and I still would rather have satellite speakers, but given that it's one unit, the output is good.
Original review (updated with addition of DTS support):
This is a bit tough, this soundbar sounds great, but doesn’t live up to it’s claim and comes in at such a high price. Maybe if you have an ideal small space it can good. Bottom line, if you’re looking for immersive surround, then this isn’t it. While the sound quality is quite impressive, at best this is a 3.1.2 front surround speaker. It also lacks DTS support, which is unacceptable for such a premium product. (EDIT 9/29/17: DTS now supported) Even with good performance, great build quality, and ease of use, the high price tag is a hard sell. Claiming 7.1.2 at such high price, I expected to have better sound bouncing technology or wireless satellite speakers. However, if you need Atmos for a small space and don’t mind the lack of immersion, and have cash to spare, then you might be happy with the sound this thing can put out.
Build quality is solid and hefty
Subwoofer is good
Easy to setup and use
Support standard 4k features, sound upscaling, and pass through
Not immersive “7.1.2”
Remote too simple and feels cheap
Setting up is easy. There’s 3 HDMI outs and ethernet port, which is pretty nice for a soundbar. Once connected, you can run easy setup to configure the network and go into the setup menu to set your levels and distances of your ceiling. It may be too simple. You can set the levels of the front as a whole, upfiring speakers, and the sub. Distance can only be set up with the ceiling speakers. There’s no calibration mic to use.
Everything is quite easy to use. You mostly just have to select the input and sound field of your choice. The menus are easy to navigate and options are there as they should with each options explaining what it does. If anything, I would say the remote is too simple. You have to cycle through all the different sound fields with a single button and there’s two buttons to cycle through the inputs. I tried all the functions except for the streaming services and chomecast, and all worked well.
I had low expectation that this soundbar would live up to it’s claim of full “immersive, cinematic audio,” and unfortunately I was right. It is capable of producing full and deep sounds rivaling bigger speakers, but it is not a full immersive 7.1.2 surround. It’s 3.1.2, with the Atmos speakers bouncing sound on the ceiling that will give you a sense of sound coming from high front speakers rather than on directly above you. There’s no sense that sound is coming from the sides or rear. It would take an ideal setup, which is a small enclosed space with low ceilings, in order for the sound to bounce properly.
For movies, I started out with Mad Max Fury Road, and the explosions were loud and booming. The subwoofer packed quite a punch for one that small. The whizzing sounds were audible from side to side, but mostly from the front and not immersive. The vocals were low on the default setting, and turning on the “Voice” option helped but it muddled the other sounds a bit. Next I tried Mission Impossible Rogue Nation, and again was not impressed. The biggest issue here is that this soundbar doesn’t decode DTS. I tried Deadpool, and it was being outputted as Linear PCM. That’s a major issue as many movies are DTS and is not acceptable in a modern sound system. I’ve had 3 receivers in the last 10 years, including Sony latest Atmos receiver, that decodes DTS.
Music actually sound fine to me. I’m not a big enough audiophile to be able to discern the differences between normal and the upscaled near hi-res music. Soundstage was good, vocals were clear, and mids and lows were fine to me. Streaming with bluetooth is simple and the quality is as expected from wireless. Playing from USB produced was consistent and quite nice.
I just can’t fully recommend this. Yes the sound is really good, and had this been a typical front firing soundbar at a lower cost, or have included satellite speakers, then I would have given it 5 stars. There are other soundbars out there that can produced a better immersive experience. At this price, you could buy an entry level Atmos receiver and decent speakers that will give you real surround sound.
