Definitive Technology SoloCinema XTR Sound Bar Preview


The Definitive Technology SoloCinema XTR Sound Bar promises 200 watts, five discrete channels, and a wireless subwoofer. But at $2000, there is a lot of competition.

Definitive Technology SoloCinema XTR 5.1 Soundbar and Wireless Subwoofer


Soundbars continue to evolve, bringing better performance and more features, but there are still reasons to be skeptical. For those reason's Alex Lezcano approached his review of the Definitive Technology SoloCinema XTR soundbar with skepticism.

Great sound, nice center and surround sound


One concern I had was the center sound overcoming the ambient/ surround sound or vice versa. This unit is pricy, but it is worth it, since you get rich sound. I have another set of Definitives in an entertainment room, and really like them. With this...

It was great - while it lasted - which wasn't long


I regretfully add my poor review to those already posted. I have been a DefTech customer in the past and still have 10+ year old incredibly substantial tower speakers, wonderful sonority clarity and depth. So I bought the SoloCinema soundbar system...
