Expert review

The Sony HT-ST9 is pricey. This 7.1 channel, 800 watt sound bar will set you back around £1,000, which for most is more than they'd have paid for their TV. The marketing blurb sounds impressive, promising 'sonic perfection', but when we tested it in our lab, we were surprised by the results. Find out why in our full review.
