Sony HT-XT3

Sony HT-XT3 review


The Sony HT-XT3 is a great soundbase with integrated subwoofer and plenty of connections

Highly recommend


I was a little bit trouble by previous reviews but as the 5 stars outweighed the 2 stars i went with it. Boy, am I glad I did. I replaced a 5.1 ch Sony surround system with this and it surpasses the old system easily. It really is plug and play, it...
