Sony Black Sound Bar Home Theater System With Wireless Subwoofer - HTCT260

Bring your movies to life with the Sony HTCT260 soundbar. No matter how much you paid for your TV, if you have a modern flat panel HDTV, then you are probably not getting very good sound out of it. Despite incredible advances in picture and sound quality, good speakers still take up a lot of room, and there just is not room for very large speakers in a super thin HDTV.

You can get amazing sound out of a soundbar like the HTCT260, so you do not have to go through the hassle and expense of buying and installing a full surround-sound home theater audio system. The 2.1 channel stereo sound that comes from this beautiful speaker bar is designed to replicate advanced surround systems. Although the audio is not quite the same, the difference is so subtle that it is almost unnoticeable.

To produce really big sound, a larger subwoofer is included in the box. The subwoofer is what will actually make the low-pitch sounds from explosions in movies or bass parts in rock music sound great. The combination of the two speakers, when positioned well in a room, will deliver incredible sound quality.

The sound quality from these speakers is so good that you will want to use them for more than just movies. That is why Sony put a Bluetooth receiver in the main speaker. You can play music or any other audio wirelessly from your phone, tablet, computer, or other Bluetooth-enabled device. The HTCT260 really is a high-quality sound system packed into one compact little bar, and you will love the sound that you get from it.

  • 2.1 Channel; 300W Soundbar
    Bring your TV experience to life with exceptional audio marked by rich, natural sound with incredible clarity and definition in a compact, stylish design

    I bought this product seeking a low profile, clutter free replacement for my old school boxy all-in-one shelf stereo. I simply needed something small but powerful and reliable. If your situation is similar - this is the product for you. Setting up was a breeze really, though I was a bit annoyed that the optical cable is only about 2 feet long. Many will find they have to go buy their own. No coax/component audio or analog 3.5" jacked wires are supplied which makes no sense given how it must cost Sony pennies to produce. Anyway - the unit sounds awesome. It auto detects Dolby broadcast streams and automatically optimizes for best sound. You can also tweak the sound dynamics (movie, talk, music). The Bluetooth connectivity is a HUGE bonus for those with smartphones. Speakers produce crisp and clear sound Subwoofer is adequate. I don't think though you'd want this system for a great room or large living area. Small living rooms and bedrooms only and you got yourself a perfect, low cost solution!

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

        I already own a Sony tv so getting a Sony sound system to connect to it made sense as far as compatability. It was very easy to set up and the sound was very good with a really nice price. I only wish that Sony would add a smart phone app so that you could bluetooth music through the system as the Sonos system does. This would be the cherry on the top! I have Sonos components and they are expensive and do not sound better than this Sony system.

        A very worthwhile accessory

        By Tweak

        from Billerica, MA

        The charger allows you to charge a battery for your RX100 in 90 minutes, outside the camera, instead of tying up the camera while changing the battery in the camera with the OEM charger supplied with the camera. It also is strong enough to run the camera and comes with USB output as well. It's bundled with a battery which makes it a great deal. I gave only 4stars for design, be ause you have to carefully seat the battery in the charger to make sure the contacts line up. If you have done it right , the charging light comes on, then multiple green lights tell you what fraction of the charging is completed.

              I don't think I can say anything better about this product that anyone else who gave it high marks. I read a lot of comments about the shape not attractive. I would rather have the cool hexagon look than a square bar. It sets it apart. Also if you place the subwoofer to the side of you or behind you it makes the Surround Sound better.

                  Above average sound quality at the price level. Definitely worth the price of purchase. The IR pass-thru in case the soundbar blocks the IR on your TV is a great touch. Bluetooth connectivity works and sounds great. Remote control is seemingly a little busy and not the greatest.
