Sony HT-XT1


As televisions get slimmer and less "audio friendly," the demand for a separate sound system has increased significantly. Sound bars have been around for a while and have quickly become popular as an easy step-up over a TV's built-in speakers. But they...

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 for Large Screen Computing


I actually use this for my current primary desktop computer. That machine uses a 40 inch 4K monitor as the primary display. I had a Logitech setup with it, but it just took up too much space. I replaced it with the Sony HT-XT1 and could not be happier....

It does what it advertises


Much better than TV speakers, not too expensive. They sound good but I think they could even sound better.

Great value


I purchased this soundbar to get some extra volume out of the TV while working on a treadmill. Decent sound quality for the price point

Just right for the room.


It's not the loudest sound bar, but it's definitely loud enough for the room. The bass and sound are strong enough to feel a good vibe. Especially when listening to music.
