Product Details

Sony 2.1 Ch. Black Sound Bar With Wireless Subwoofer - HTCT790

Features:

  • 2.1 channel system brings out the best in your movies
    Feel the full force of every movie soundtrack with this 2.1 channel sound bar. The two drivers have been carefully engineered to deliver a balanced audio response across all frequencies, while a wireless subwoofer adds more body to your bass – so every explosion and action sequence hits harder than ever before.
  • S-Master digital amplifier: true sonic purity
    Enjoy the best of digital audio with the S-Master digital amplifier. Using a simplified, full digital signal path, the S-Master amplifier reproduces digital audio signals without the multiple analog stages required by conventional amplifiers. The result is not just more power, but significantly less distortion caused by heat build-up.
  • Cinematic S-Force PRO Front Surround
    An immersive virtual surround sound experience. S-Force PRO Front Surround mimics the way the brain correlates sound sources to create proper volume, time lag, and sound wave spectrum — using only left and right speaker channels. By naturally emulating three-dimensional sound fields, you'll be able to enjoy rich, high-fidelity audio across a wider listening area.
  • Wireless subwoofer for flexible setup
    Add impact to movies with rich, powerful bass. Position the 15" (38 cm) wireless subwoofer anywhere in the room to enjoy rich, resounding bass with fine low-end detail thanks to a bass-reflex port. The compact, stylish black unit blends in with any décor.
  • Unite your music with SongPal
    Download SongPal for your smartphone or tablet and take control of your music collection. Simply connect over Bluetooth® or Wi-Fi and you'll have seamless access to all your favorite tracks, whether they're stored on your PC, server, or favorite online music service. The app can also be used to customize sound settings to ensure great, balanced audio.
  • ClearAudio+ enriches your music
    Unique to Sony, ClearAudio+ automatically adjusts sound settings for an enriching listening experience. By bringing together expertise in digital signal processing technologies, ClearAudio+ is able to optimize audio formats to deliver a consistently clear, high-quality sound, whatever music you're into.
  • Connect to your home network with DLNA
    Digital Living Network Alliance (DLNA) is an industry-wide standard for sharing data over a home network. This makes it easier to stream and transfer your favorite music, films, and pictures between your DLNA-supported devices—including TVs, PCs, portable servers, and gaming consoles.
  • One-touch listening to play music instantly
    NFC (Near Field Communication) technology removes the need for wired connections and complex setup sequences. Simply touch your NFC-enabled smartphone or other device to the on-body N-mark and start your music. No NFC? No problem. You can also pair the devices manually in Bluetooth® settings.
  • DSEE restores detail to your digital music
    Boost the quality of your compressed music files. When an original music source is compressed, it loses the high-frequency elements that add detail and richness to your favorite tracks. The Digital Sound Enhancement Engine (DSEE) faithfully restores these to produce high-quality sound that's closer to the original recording.
  • Set your music free with Multi-room listening
    Fill your home with the sound of your favorite tracks, thanks to multi-room listening. Use the SongPal app to group selected Sony sound bars and speakers together, then stream music from a PC or your home network in multiple rooms throughout your home. It's the perfect way to enjoy your favorite songs without being tied to one room.
  • Compatible with HDCP 2.2 Copy Protection
    HDCP (High-bandwidth Digital Content Protection) is the latest generation of copy protection. Designed primarily for Ultra HD 4K devices, it employs advanced encryption techniques to create a secure connection between source and display, preventing the unlicensed copying of copyrighted content.
  • The simple way to send music to your speakers
    The HT-CT790 has Google Cast™ built in, so you can cast your favorite music apps from your personal device to your speakers. Simply tap the cast button in a music app on your Android phone or tablet, iPhone, iPad, Mac®, Windows laptop or Chromebook and select a speaker or group of speakers to get started. You can also play Spotify through your speakers, laptop, and TV using the Spotify app
  • Higher quality wireless audio streaming
    LDAC transmits approximately three times more data (at the maximum transfer rate: 990 kbps) than conventional Bluetooth® audio, for a superior wireless listening experiencestyle name="sup"1/style.
  • Bluetooth® streaming for personal listening
    Stream audio directly from the sound bar to your headphones via Bluetooth® for convenient wireless listening. Compatible with high-quality LDAC and AAC codecs, the HT-CT790 is designed for personal viewing, so you can put your headphones on to enjoy a movie on the big screen without disturbing anyone.
  • High Dynamic Range (HDR)
    By supporting High Dynamic Range (HDR) signal pass-through, you can enjoy the incredible jump in image contrast and brightness it brings, and the additional shadow and highlights further enhance picture detail and brings colors to life.
  • 4K pass-through for 4K content
    Maintain 4K quality from source to screen. The 4K pass-through feature allows 4K data to 'pass through' and be displayed on a 4K TV or projector, without compromising image quality. Giving you the pure 4K experience makes this sound bar the perfect partner for 4K-capable TVs and players, and a solid cornerstone for your home entertainment system for the future.

So it's "only a 2.1 channel" soundbar, but to be honest I don't see much need beyond 2 channels and the sub, considering the soundbar is placed in front of you (and not around you). What can I say? The sound is excellent (for all uses). The price is right, and the core features are there. (Bluetooth works well and is easy to pair devices). The subwoofer requires pretty much no setup which is appreciated. It pairs to the bar the first time you use it with zero intervention required. One edge this soundbar has over some slightly older models is that it has an HDCP 2.2 port. For those who don't know, thats essentially an HDMI port that will probably wind up being required when 4K Ultra-HD Blu-Ray players come out. If the player requires HDCP and your soundbar/TV doesnt have it, then you're out of luck - it won't work. While only 1 of the 3 HDMI ports are HDCP, it does at least have it whereas some devices don't. As a final added bonus, if you happen to use this with certain TVs (I happen to have a Sony XBR-55X850C), it syncs flawlessly with it. No need for multiple, remotes. The power/volume/mute/input controls are completely synced between both the TV and Soundbar which was quite satisfying. It won't be a feature for everyone, but for those who do use it - it's pretty sweet. Ultimately though for the price, quality, and easy setup, this is an excellent option for those looking to upgrade their TV sound without buying a receiver and separate speakers.

      Comments about Sony 2.1 Ch. Black Sound Bar With Wireless Subwoofer:

      Great sound for a small unit, I was between a Sony, Polk, and Klipsch but for the features and price point of this sound bar it was a no brainer. Salesman was extremely helpful helping narrowing down my choices - was not "sales-y" whatsoever.

      Extremely easy to wall mount.

      Purchased with a Sony xbr65x750d.

      I'm not used to having just a sound bar so when you are sitting in the far back in the room, you won't get the same feel you would get with a real 5:1 system.

      Loud but soft

      Comments about Sony 2.1 Ch. Black Sound Bar With Wireless Subwoofer:

      Produces very well balanced sounds. Even for the loud sounds, it produces nice sounds that doesn't hurt my ears. Extra HDMIs are big plus, though I found my TV box sounds better through Samsung TV output rather than connecting directly on HDMI. Of course, Sony Playstation worked better with the direct input. I would only take out half star if I could, for being a bit pricey when compared with others.
