Sony HT-XT1 review

 

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.

Sony HT-CT770 Soundbar and HT-XT1 Sound Platform Preview

 

Preview: If the Sony name on the HT-CT770 SoundBar with Wireless sub and HT-XT1 Sound Platform don't sell units, the prices certainly will. At $449 and $299 respectively, these are priced to move.

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.

Sony HT-XT1 review

 

A stylish, feature-packed answer to the budget soundbase question

Great build and design Well featured Large soundfield Punchy, exciting sound

Hard edge to treble Midrange could be better integrated

Sony’s hit the ground running with the HT-XT1. We really like this soundbase: the wealth of connections, features and the smart design make it an attractive buy, and the punchy, energetic sound is bound to have its fans. It’s worth an audition.

Great till it breaks down (less than three months old

 

I had a problem with my Sony HT-XT1 Home Theatre System where the TV sound just stopped working. I tried all the manual listed tests and resets but to no avail. I called Sony Canada and spoke with Frank who was unable to help other than to say there...

Sounded good when it worked

No use when it doesnt work and the Sony warranty is worthless - they wont do anything for you

Quality built product with ok sound

 

For a one-piece speaker system, this unit works ok with a 55" TV. It removes clutter and works well with a Bluray player, Dish receiver, Wii, and karaoke unit specifically with the ARC capability.

Sleek design, fits nicely under 55" TV, solid product

Bass sounds dull and thin
