Comments about Sony Home Theater Soundbar System:

Great sound at a reasonable price! I love all the sound adjustments that I can make to micro it to my liking.

Comments about Sony Home Theater Soundbar System:

I'm one of those guys that does months worth of research before buying something and boy, I'm glad I did. This unit sounds a looks like units double the price with more tech features, inputs, and support than anything else out there on the market. The sound on sports is fantastic, music thumps and provides monstrous bass and tight clear highs, and movies sound better than most theaters. You will no be disappointed whatsoever!


Sound is good but HDMI functionality is weak

By BML23

from Chicago, IL 60607, USA

Comments about Sony Home Theater Soundbar System:

I bought this mainly because it has an HDMI pass through for connecting all of my other components. The HDMI functionality was disappointing though. It takes more than 10 seconds switching between HDMI inputs before the video appears on the TV screen, and sometimes it doesn't show up at all. I have to turn everything off and start all over for the video to come up. On the plus side, the bluetooth works well at closer ranges and the sound is pretty good.


Love it

Comments about Sony Home Theater Soundbar System:

I read a ton of reviews and ultimately decided to go with this sound bar and I am not disappointed at all. It does exactly what it is designed to do. It's not a home theatre system, it's a sound bar and a good one for the money.


Great value

By Mandela

Comments about Sony Home Theater Soundbar System:

So glad i finally purchased a soundbar, so worth it. The Sony is perfect for our condo, plenty of power and bass to really fill the room and great sound at low levels. Simple and convenient with all the basic features one needs.


Nice Sound Bar!

By JerryS

from Tulsa. OK 74137

Comments about Sony Home Theater Soundbar System:

It looks nice and generally works well. I like the bluetooth feature, although I don't use it much. I like the feature that you can set it up to turn on and off automatically with the TV, although I seem to have trouble getting this to stay activated. My biggest complaint and disappointment is the limited volume. It is "almost enough" volume at full setting, but I expected it to be "more than enough", so I would NEVER use full volume. That isn't true and I am really not satisfied for that reason. If I had it to do again, I would shop for something with more volume.


Not too shabby at all!

Comments about Sony Home Theater Soundbar System:

Bought this bad boy a month ago and I don't think I could be happier. Much better than the sound coming out of the TV and the wireless sub is a bonus. I run a gaming system and cable through it and have had no issues. Great job Sony!

Twice as lucky the second time.

By giddyup

Comments about Sony Home Theater Soundbar System:

After purchasing the HTST7 for our main living room I was looking for a less expensive alternative for our basement TV room. Given I had such a positive experience with the 7.1 surround version of the Sony soundbar I figured I would look at the less expensive alternative. I did my typical research on top selling soundbars and subsequently went to the local electronic store to listen to the quality. We have a 60" sony smart Tv so I was thinking I needed something large despite the relatively small space in the basement. After much deliberation I settled on the HT-CT770. I loved the look and simplicity of the wall mount application. Being a former employee of a top manufacturer of speakers I have relatively high end tatse when it comes to being impressed. After plugging in the soundbar and getting it setup (all of 10 minutes) I was simply amazed by the quality of sound! I immediately played some old favorite moves, sound tracks and was immediately impressed. After 2 hours of sitting on the floor being totally immersed in my experience, I decided I would write my first ever review and thank Sony for this wonderful product.


Great Sound Bar

By ElectronicsGuy

from Undisclosed

Comments about Sony Home Theater Soundbar System:

The Sony Sound Bar met all of my requirements including excellent sound with a wireless subwoofer, HDMI ports on the sound bar that eliminate to the need for me to get behind the TV when, for example, I want to connect a computer. Did a lot of research prior and overall very satisfied with this product.


Great sound

By Boarman

from 35114

Comments about Sony Home Theater Soundbar System:

I purchased the Sony sound bar and woofer to enrich the sound of my dvd/cd/blueray player. I have found that it works great for hdtv as well. The only shortcoming is using the remote. I have to move to where I can point the remote for the sound bar to respond. Other than that it is easy to program and enhancing the sound and makes listening and viewing my dvd player and tv much more enjoyable.
