Sony HT-CT260

 

It starts with excellent sound quality, topping last year's sonic champ, the Haier SBEV40-Slim , and holding its own with the best we've heard this year, too. There's built-in Bluetooth, making it easy to wirelessly stream audio from just about every...

The Sony HT-CT260 delivers excellent sound quality for a budget sound bar/subwoofer system. It has a distinctive, angular design, plus a built-in remote control signal repeater in case the sound bar blocks your TV's remote sensor. There's also...

Some similarly priced sound bars sound even better. And the hexagonal design may not be for everyone.

The Sony HT-CT260 is our go-to budget sound bar pick, with excellent sound quality, built-in Bluetooth, an adaptable design, and no major missteps.

Sony HT-CT260 Home Theater Soundbar

 

The Sony HT-CT260 soundbar adds Bluetooth to an already highly capable and modestly-priced two-piece audio system.

Excellent value. Built-in Bluetooth. Powerful bass. Warm-sounding midrange response

Treble response isn't the clearest. Stereo and surround imaging isn't quite expansive enough

Sometimes a simple extra feature can take a product to the next level—in this case, it's Bluetooth. The Sony HT-CT260 soundbar is already a solid choice for enhancing your HDTV's audio with a wireless subwoofer and warm midrange response, but built-in...

Sony HT-CT260

 

It's not the cheapest sound bar you can buy, and its sound quality falls short of what premium sound bars can deliver. But few competitors in its price class can deliver as good a balance of performance and features. The Yamaha YAS-101 (Est. $250)...

Excellent value, Built-in Bluetooth support, Deep, effective bass

Treble could be clearer, Average connectivity

Great soundbar

 

Great sound, abundant inputs including BT, looks slick, easy to mount on wall. Subwoofer links up without fuss. I purchased it refurbished, and it works like a charm. Very nice, I'm happy to have it in my living room!

I was under the impression that this soundbar had a digital coax input. Not the case! The "H" in CT260H specifies that this revision of this soundbar replaced the digital coax input with an HDMI input.

Dead on arrival

 

Arrived and the soundbar would not turn on. Which basically means they "refurbed" it and did no testing, or they sent me a model that was meant to be refurbed and no one repaired it. Embarrassing screwup on their part, and now I have to go through the...

Shipping was fast

Arrived DOA
