        Comments about Sony Black TV Soundbar:

        Recently, I purchased a Samsung 32" LED televion from ABT. The televion's picture quality and features were exceptional, but the sound was lacking in volume and range. After my research, I settled on the Sony sound base. I compared this to the Yamaha and Bose units and found the Sony unit to offer the best value and sound quality. This is a great enhancement for the viewing and listening pleasure. Keep in mind, this unit is not a 5.1 or 7.1 sound system, but you won't be disappointed for its general purpose and function. I enjoy the Blue Tooth interface in order to listen to my music from my iPhone. The build and design is exceptional. You'll be happy with this product.

        Easily holds a 55" TV and is inconspicuous. Very easy to set up and interfaces easily with all my components. Sound is much better than TV speakers, and I notice improved voice clarity. Bass and treble can be easily adjusted. I still find the remote a bit confusing, but once the speaker is set up, it does not require much fine tuning.

        An elegant solution to small TV speakers

        Comments about Sony Black TV Soundbar:

        There's no getting around the sad fact that the thinner the TV, the smaller the speakers and the worse the sound. I use this with the Sony XBR55X850B, which must have speakers about the size of a quarter. The HTXT1 solves the problem elegantly by providing rich, broadly dispersed sound in a small, attractive package that doubles as a stand for the TV (with the legs in the center position). It doesn't replace a legitimate, receiver-based surround system--I still use one of those for movies--but more than adequately handles TV show sound. The only drawback is a fairly frequent volume disparity between channels or commercials and programming despite a setting designed to minimize that. For the price, a real winner.

          Worth the money. A lot of sound bars come with detached subwoofers, and I was worried that this would need it, but this thing gives off a lot of bass! Sounds is very clear too. Not the best thing out there, but for the price it is great!

              I did a lot of research on sound bars and sound bases and this was the one we felt fit our needs the best. I believe we made the right choice! Very easy to set up, even for my low-tech abilities. Only knock was getting the sound-base to consistently turn on with my Samsung tv. I have overcome this issue by programming the remote that goes with my cable HD box. Sound is great for our living room, including movies and sports.

                I could use my TV sound with satellite, but they don't have enough power to watch movies on Netflix. This system resolved the problem. 170 watts is more than enough for my living room. Besides, my TV stand is pretty low, and regular soundbar placed in front of TV would obstruct the view. This soundbar located under the TV, so the whole screen is in clear view. It has built-in subwoofer which doesn't take an extra space. Sound is fine for me, but I'm not an audiophile.
