Definitive Technology SoloCinema XTR Review


Venture into any brick and mortar electronics store such as Best Buy or even Costco and you'll probably notice a shift in focus has taken place in home electronics over the past few years. Expensive consumer gear such as dedicated home theater systems...

First sound bar with DTS-HD Master and Dolby TrueHD support ; HDMI ins and outs make this a true home theater hub ; Impressive simulated surround ; Solid engineering and construction quality ; High “spouse/partner” acceptance factor

Cheap plastic remote that has no place in such an expensive system ; Rear panel space is tight for connections ; Music mode of little to no use ; Subwoofer does not allow crossover or phase adjustment

A combination of unrivaled dynamics, a punchy and detailed midrange, and transparency that one usually only experiences from more expensive loudspeakers truly sets the SoloCinema XRT apart from the competition.

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.

The Definitive Technology SoloCinema XTR Sound Bar promises full surround out of three tweeters and six midrange drivers. The all aluminum enclosure, high quality drivers, and wireless sub have us intrigued as does the promise of support for lossless...

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.

Lucky me, I was able to put the SoloCinema XTR through its paces and see if the XTR could make a believer out of a skeptic. Well, it did not take long for me to become a believer in Definitive Technology's 5.1 channel surround soundbar. At $1,999, not...

Not up to todays technology


Sound quality was very good from this system but was very disappointed with the cheap feeling remote and menu system to set it up. If you do not use it thru your HDMI cable you have no way to know what any settings are. Also system worked better with...

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...
