Sony HT-CT290 review

  (Rating Hidden)

The Sony HT-CT290 is a large sound bar that sits in the middle of Sony's sound bar range. It's got some useful features, such as a wireless subwoofer that will cut down on your living room clutter. But how does it stand up in the all-important sound...

Weak sound


I bought this as a replacement for the HT-CT260. I was very surprised to find that this product is lacking in many areas. A very limited remote control, weak sound with little to no middle and a muddy and vibrating bass. I have since found a far better...

Fantastic Bargain


The sound is fantastic, crisp and clear. I use this for my TV and for playing music. This replaced an original soundbar and is far superior that the previous. I would recommend this to anyone, the price is excellant

Amazing sound quality

Good sound.


With my Sony TV, I needed to use both an HDMI cable (not supplied) and the optical cable supplied to get A/V sync. The sound bar turns on and off with the TV remote.

Should be able to increase gain on sub


Have to put it on full volume before sounding OK. Should be able to configure gain and crossover for the sub. Also a really noticeable lip sync problem with the sound bar.
