I heard the Sony HT-CT550W in the store the other day and I was amazed. To me, the HTCT550W Sony Sound Bar is a technological marvel. It's a slim 2.1 sound bar that behaves like a 5.1 system. It processes all the latest multichannel sound fields and has a wireless sub woofer that I can move around my room as I please. Not only does it produce very strong volume and deep bass--the sub woofer really woofs. Also, I was really impressed at how this sound bar produces surround sound from my favorite bluray movies. I can't believe how much better this system is than my old CT350 Sound Bar ( I thought the CT350 was very good) Well I ended up giving my CT350 to my kids and I kept the HT-CT550W for myself.

I purchased this unit hoping it would replace a home theater receiver, but found the limitations too great. I was pairing this with a Sony Bravia TV, using the HDMI interfaces. I found the HDMI audio to be 1 second delayed with only 1 adjustment option on the amplifier for 'Sync Video'. Setting this option to 1 caused the audio to be 2 seconds out of sync, instead of 1. When using the HDMI and ARC #Audio Return Channel# feature of the HDMI, this was more prevalent. If I was using the TOS interface, I did not notice the delay problem, but lost the auto switching ability, and have extra cables. In addition, when using the ARC, almost all the audio options are disabled in the TV, relying on the audio controls of the AV system, which are sub-par in the the CT550W. They're ok, but not great. According to the manual, the system would choose the correct sound field automatically, but all I saw was 'standard', and rarely liked the sound field. #IE: Playing Pandora should be 2Ch Stereo, while Netflix should Probably be movie, but if using ARC, this is not changeable by the user# Using TOS, the TV provides the options, but disables the auto speaker disable, resulting in a very poor audio echo if the TV speakers were not muted.

SIMPLY THE BEST FOR THE $$$

By 

from 30328

Comments about Sony Black 3D Sound Bar Home Theater System With Wireless Subwoofer:

I'm one of those guys that does months worth of research before buying something and boy, I'm glad I did. This unit sounds a looks like units double the price with more tech features, inputs, and support than anything else out there on the market. The sound on sports is fantastic, music thumps and provides monstrous bass and tight clear highs, and movies sound better than most theaters. You will no be disappointed whatsoever!

Sound is good but HDMI functionality is weak

By 

from Chicago, IL 60607, USA

Comments about Sony Black 3D Sound Bar Home Theater System With Wireless Subwoofer:

I bought this mainly because it has an HDMI pass through for connecting all of my other components. The HDMI functionality was disappointing though. It takes more than 10 seconds switching between HDMI inputs before the video appears on the TV screen, and sometimes it doesn't show up at all. I have to turn everything off and start all over for the video to come up. On the plus side, the bluetooth works well at closer ranges and the sound is pretty good.

Love it

Comments about Sony Black 3D Sound Bar Home Theater System With Wireless Subwoofer:

I read a ton of reviews and ultimately decided to go with this sound bar and I am not disappointed at all. It does exactly what it is designed to do. It's not a home theatre system, it's a sound bar and a good one for the money.

Great value

By

Comments about Sony Black 3D Sound Bar Home Theater System With Wireless Subwoofer:

So glad i finally purchased a soundbar, so worth it. The Sony is perfect for our condo, plenty of power and bass to really fill the room and great sound at low levels. Simple and convenient with all the basic features one needs.

Nice Sound Bar!

By 

from Tulsa. OK 74137

Comments about Sony Black 3D Sound Bar Home Theater System With Wireless Subwoofer:

It looks nice and generally works well. I like the bluetooth feature, although I don't use it much. I like the feature that you can set it up to turn on and off automatically with the TV, although I seem to have trouble getting this to stay activated. My biggest complaint and disappointment is the limited volume. It is "almost enough" volume at full setting, but I expected it to be "more than enough", so I would NEVER use full volume. That isn't true and I am really not satisfied for that reason. If I had it to do again, I would shop for something with more volume.

Not too shabby at all!

By 

from Auburn Hills, MI 48326, USA

Comments about Sony Black 3D Sound Bar Home Theater System With Wireless Subwoofer:

Bought this bad boy a month ago and I don't think I could be happier. Much better than the sound coming out of the TV and the wireless sub is a bonus. I run a gaming system and cable through it and have had no issues. Great job Sony!

Twice as lucky the second time.

By 

from Broadview Heights, OH 44147, USA

Comments about Sony Black 3D Sound Bar Home Theater System With Wireless Subwoofer:

After purchasing the HTST7 for our main living room I was looking for a less expensive alternative for our basement TV room. Given I had such a positive experience with the 7.1 surround version of the Sony soundbar I figured I would look at the less expensive alternative. I did my typical research on top selling soundbars and subsequently went to the local electronic store to listen to the quality. We have a 60" sony smart Tv so I was thinking I needed something large despite the relatively small space in the basement. After much deliberation I settled on the HT-CT770. I loved the look and simplicity of the wall mount application. Being a former employee of a top manufacturer of speakers I have relatively high end tatse when it comes to being impressed. After plugging in the soundbar and getting it setup (all of 10 minutes) I was simply amazed by the quality of sound! I immediately played some old favorite moves, sound tracks and was immediately impressed. After 2 hours of sitting on the floor being totally immersed in my experience, I decided I would write my first ever review and thank Sony for this wonderful product.

Great Sound Bar

By 

from Undisclosed

Comments about Sony Black 3D Sound Bar Home Theater System With Wireless Subwoofer:

The Sony Sound Bar met all of my requirements including excellent sound with a wireless subwoofer, HDMI ports on the sound bar that eliminate to the need for me to get behind the TV when, for example, I want to connect a computer. Did a lot of research prior and overall very satisfied with this product.

Great sound

By 

from 35114

Comments about Sony Black 3D Sound Bar Home Theater System With Wireless Subwoofer:

I purchased the Sony sound bar and woofer to enrich the sound of my dvd/cd/blueray player. I have found that it works great for hdtv as well. The only shortcoming is using the remote. I have to move to where I can point the remote for the sound bar to respond. Other than that it is easy to program and enhancing the sound and makes listening and viewing my dvd player and tv much more enjoyable.
