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.

Bought Sony soundbar to give flat screen tv an extra punch. Looks good under tv and takes up little space. Sounds very good but doesn't allow much adjustment. That's ok, I just don't like tv blasting me out of the room through my hifi equipment!

Easy to set up, easy to use. Takes up very little space for the $$$ it's better than buying a overpriced receiver, speakers and sub, running all of the cables yourself and hoping it sounds decent when you're finished.
