Sony HT-XT1 review


At this point, it's common knowledge that flat-screen TVs tend to sound pretty bad. Now, along with the nearly ubiquitous sound bar, an even more succinct solution has arisen in the form of the sound base (or sound platform, sound stand, etc.)....

Clear, present sound ; Loaded with features and inputs ; Elegant design ; Intuitive interface ; Great price

Midrange a tad too light and delicate ; Won’t hit the lowest lows

The XT1 sets the standard for this new sound base speaker category.

Sony HT-XT1


Sony's debut soundbase is feature-packed but sonically flawed

Generous feature list ; Superb build quality ; Dynamic, detailed sound

Brash treble ; Bass integration could be better

Sony’s HT-XT1 is an attractive, well-made and feature-packed affair with a crisp, attacking sound, but sonic flaws deny it a place at the soundbase top table.
