    I bought the Sony HT-CT150 as a replacement for the speakers on my TV. The sound improvement was outstanding. I was told that Bose blows away the competition, so I decided to run a head to head comparison between the Sony system and the Bose CineMate II speaker system. The Bose system sounded great in the store, but couldn't compare to the Sony system in my home. I spent quite a lot of time trying to optimize speaker placement and subwoofer level on the Bose system, but I couldn't get it to sound as good as the Sony system. Sorry Bose, but Sony wins this one!

    If you are looking for a soundbar, this is a great one with very good sound and it looks good. But, you have to point the remote at the very front of the Sub (angles barely work). Since this is on the floor and often not next to the TV or in a cabinet, this won't work for most people. Spend a little less and get the CT100 (previous model) and you won't be disappointed. I now have both (selling this one) and the sound is very comparable and you get to point the remote at the sound bar instead of the sub.

        Comments about Sony Black Virtual 5.1 Sound Bar:

        My only negative concerns the remote; It has A LOT of functions and it will take some time for me to get it all. Also, I'm a big fan of the universal remote, but I'm afraid of losing functions with one. As products get better (and this one is seems really good) they get more complicated and controlling thgem all with one device becomes almost impossible.

          Comments about Sony Black Virtual 5.1 Sound Bar:

          I like that I can up the level on the center speaker so that voices are not drowned out by the background music, as is so common on TV shows today.

          I would like a better range of treble.

          I like the low profile bar. It doesn't block the infrared window on my 42" Sony TV.

              Good enhancement to sound from TV speakers. Can control Bravia TV and DVD with the audio system remote. Can just use set-top box remote if you have no need to change audio for TV viewing. Make sure you have a suitable location for the subwoofer -- remember it is a wired connection to the TV.

                Purchased to up grade my sound system & my SONY BRAVIA and SONY BLU-RAY. The sound quality is so much better. I can actually turn down the volume, not have it as loud. It was very easy to set up. Highly recommend this Sony sound bar with subwoofer and experience a whole new sound.
