Sony HT-XT1


For $300, the Sony offers a ton of features, including HDMI connectivity and Bluetooth, plus the sound quality is pretty good too. Like a traditional sound bar , it's easy to hook up and simple to operate with a better-than-average remote. The HT-XT1...

The Sony HT-XT1 sound stand offers solid performance for both movies and music. It's also loaded with features, including three HDMI inputs and built-in Bluetooth with NFC support. The design is sleek, including a subtle front panel display and an...

There's no separate subwoofer and no ability to add one later, which means it can sometimes sound thinner than system with a true sub. Occasionally dialogue can also sound less intelligible than other sound bars at this price.

Sony's HT-XT1 sound stand is packed with features, looks sleek, and sounds great, making it a no-brainer upgrade over your TV's built-in speakers.

Great sound.


We purchased our first Smart TV (Sony) and were concerned about the sound since the speakers are on the bottom. The salesperson recommended the Sony sound bar system. The TV sits on top of it so it takes up little space and sounds great.

Amazing sound


This sound base is amazing. I have had many sound bars and bases over the years. Easy hookup and great sound to fill my bedroom.

Great value


The sound coming from this speaker compliments any TV well and the built-in sub is a good added value for the price. Additionally you don't have to worry about more than one component. Unfortunately the output is limited to HDMI as the bar does not...

Good sound


Very good sound, more discrete than a bar as used platform under the TV central stand. So looks like it's part of TV rather than sitting in front.

Surprisingly Wonderful


I was looking for a soundbar within this price range and was wonderfully surprised to find this. Besides the pristine sound quality, I love the design of this. Prior to this purchase I always purchased soundbars with wireless subwoofers thinking that...
