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.

I like it, with a reservation


This Sound Base has impressive thought behind it, Settings for older folks to better hear and understand dialogue, for greater bass, and multiple HDMI ports to compliment additional players. Only wish it had a coaxial digital connector - Sony is not...

Delivers as promised


I wanted to buy a sound bar to "raise the bar" on my Samsung TV audio. I researched different brands, models, and read many reviews. I decided to buy this reasonably priced one. It provides a significant increase in tenor and bass levels compared to...

Greatly enhances TV sound


Unlike most sound bars I've seen, this unit is thin and deep, allowing you to place it under a stand-mounted or wall-mounted TV. It nicely enhances the sound when watching movies or music videos and is a practical alternative to wiring external...

Small but carries a great punch.


My wife and I moved to a smaller home and had to downsize. As a result, I had to give up my Home theater system (80" Projection with 5.1 surround) for a very small TV (32") in a small AV cabinet. What is a guy to do? I picked up an HTXT1 in hopes that...
