Bose Soundbar 700 review

Comparing these two sides I found out that Bose has 3.0 built-in channels. Input rating is 65W. Sony boasts 7.1.2 channels and 140W of power. With its glass panel, metal grill, clean lines and sophisticated finishes, the BOSE Soundbar 700 is just as beautiful on the outside as on the inside. Place the soundbar on the TV stand or gently mount it on the wall. In any case, it is pleasant to the eyes and hearing. With Amazon Alexa's virtual assistant built into the BOSE Soundbar 700, you can use your voice commands to control music from various sources. Bose Soundbar 700

Sony HT-ST5000 review

The main channel for communication between the components of a modern AV system is the digital HDMI interface. It was on him that the main stake was made in the switching arsenal of the Sony HT-ST5000 soundbar, which is equipped with three HDMI input ports version 2.0 with support for the latest generation of copyright protection system HDCP 2.2. The video path of the device confidently copes with 4K-video with HDR. The HDMI output is compatible with ARC (Audio Return Channel), so if your TV supports this specification, then the soundbar will easily take over the broadcasts. Sony HT-ST5000
