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.

Excelent sound quality

Excellent sound from a very versatile component


It's compact, versatile, has big sound, and is wonderfully sturdy! Since it'll handle up to 65 lbs. of weight on top of it, even our 55" TV can sit on top to save space. We have two of these and are most pleased.

Loving it!


So it was time to buy a new HDTV but one thing I noticed (and learned the hard way) was unlike the first HDTVs years ago that delivered great sound, this new era of "slim is in" HDTVs gave the sound quality of a laptop. Looking at room my next TV was...

Good sound enhancement for a bedroom


My application was to use with my recently purchased 40" Sony Bravia for the master bedroom. For that purpose it is adequate and takes up very little space compared to a conventional sound bar and remote speakers. For a large great room or home...

Great sound, good value


The Sony sound system (not a sound bar) is easy to connect and provides great sound at all volume levels. You might have to play around with the different sound types (movie, standard, etc.) to see which you like best, but this is a quality product at...
