Sony HT-CT100

 

Editors' note : The rating of the Sony HT-CT100 has been changed since publication to better reflect its value compared to competing home theater systems.

Superslender soundbar home-theater system eliminates the need for an AV receiver; comes with a potent subwoofer; three HDMI inputs; supereasy setup.

Subwoofer-based connection jacks may require creative placement or cable runs; only supports four AV sources (plus Sony's proprietary DM Port accessories).

Sony's HT-CT100 soundbar/subwoofer audio system is a phenomenal value that sounds great with movies and music.

Sony Surround Sound System for PlayStation 3 Review

 

Sony's new all-in-one surround sound bar promises to deliver an immersive audio experience for gamers, but does it deliver?

Beyond the rigors of the setup process, the real test of the Kinect is its motion tracking performance. The sensor recognizes players and detects their motions with an impressive amount of accuracy, capturing the slightest movement of their bodies, but...

Great sound for small rooms

 

In lamens terms you can't stream Netflix through supported devices such as an XBOX 360, PS3, or Home Theatre PC. The work around to to connect your "Netflix" device directly to your TV.

Easy set up. Good bass. Bravia theatre sync

Won't support high bandwidth digital content protection (HDCP)

"Awesome sound for the size and price"

 

I would recommend it to a friend.

Small sound bar which can be placed neatly under the TV or mounted on the wall/TV unit.

None at this time.

"Great Product. Just to need set everything up properly."

 

Earlier reviews had some folks complaining about the

Minimalist design. Great sounding straight out of the box. Super easy to set up !

There could always be more HDMI ports =) ! Great if they could provide a longer Optical Cable..

"Does not give enough sound"

 

Easy set up.

Sound negligble. Had it turned up ALL the way, only a bit more than the regular tvs speakers. Wanted to improve the sound of the tv.

"Best system Ever"

 

If you think that you can just plug this in and you are going to get great sound you are sadly mistaken. Even with owning a PS3 I had to go in my setting and turn on HDMI compatability. This is the best system I have ever owned. I have a 800sq. ft...

Great Sound, very few wires!!
