Good budget sound bar
Posted by: garrett94 from: on
I purchased this sound bar along with a new Sony tv about a month ago. So far I have not had any issues with it whatsoever. It works perfectly. Setup was a breeze, I just plugged it in and followed the couple simple steps to pair the wireless subwoofer. I have never lacked for sound with this sound bar and it sounds a lot better than the audio coming out of the tv. However, I feel like if you really want to hear loud bass or want to blast your movies at movie theater volume you might be better off buying the next model up (this is the only reason I'm rating it 4 stars). Despite this, I think I've only had the sound bar turned all the way up once, and I typically watch tv with the volume about halfway up and it sounds great. The sound is also customizable so you can adjust the bass and other options to your taste. I think this is a great sound system for the price and I doubt you can get a better one in the same price range. If I had the extra $200 to spend I would probably think about getting the next model up, but this set up more than gets the job done!

Sony is superior to similar priced/ranges for LG
Posted by: meowtime from: on
Compared this Sony HT-CT390 (BestBuy open box for $129.99) and the LG SH3K (BestBuy $125 after Visa Checkout) and with two TV's in two separate bedrooms did independent tests to compare the two and found the Sony to have several key advantages. The advantage of the LG was slightly louder and larger oomph from the bass. Advantages for the Sony were:
1. More clear audio, sharper details, tested with 300, The office, music
2. HDMI (ARC) so higher quality connection and ability to control with existing TV remote
3. Longer Bluetooth Range, and remote can actually control the Bluetooth device (phone) unlike LG
4. Slimmer so can sit down in front of TV, without blocking screen or wall mountable
5. LED display so you can see volume level
6. LG has just Standard, Movie; Music. Sony has those plus additional modes of clear voice, sports, and Game, plus night mode
7. Better wall mounting brackets
9. USB input, plus the ability to see the data on the LED display
I returned the LG and kept the Sony and couldn't be happier.

Great Sound Quality
Posted by: SuperDadGoku from: on
I was impressed by this soundbar in the store, but was not when I got it home. It didn't sound much better than my TV speakers until I turned on some music and wow! The range and volume is really impressive, and the sub is surprisingly powerful. The only complaints I have are that there is a sound lag if you are using anything other than HDMI ARC, and the remote is garbage. Obviously both of these issues would be fixed by using ARC if your TV is capable. Mine, unfortunately, is not.

SONY Soundbar w/ Wireless Subwoofer - GREAT!
Posted by: JGBaseball from: on
Bought a new 64in SONY 4K TV and sales associate recommended the new SONY - 2.1-Channel Soundbar System with 5.12 Wireless Subwoofer and Digital Amplifier. The clarity of the sound and base was awesome. There is a bluetooth feature as well.

Doesn't connect to my new Sony Tv
Posted by: furthur35 from: ohio on
I got this with my new tv because I figured it would work best, like it says use one remote. Well not so. For it to even be recognized by the tv I have to do a combination of turning th sound bar on then my tv or vise versa. Now I have it hooked up through the ARC hdmis with a 4K high speed cable and still nothing. I'm very disappointed by because now the sound bar barely gets used and I feel it's a waste of money. Now using the Bluetooth and listening to music it sounds great very low distortions at high volume and the bass is super tight and responsive. I bet it would sound great for movies

Have a Sony tv. Figured get a soundbar as well. Great sound and it fits the low profile of the tv.
