Bar Speaker Subwoofer Remote Control with x2 AAA Batteries Optical Digital Cable AC Adapter Ac Power Cord (mains lead) Speaker Pad for the Subwoofer (x4) Startup Guide Operating Instructions Product Registration Sheet Warranty Sheet Setup/Testing/Conclusion No fingerprints yay! The material that Sony used on this soundbar is quite nice. The design of it also fits perfectly with my entertainment setup at home. The setup of the Sony HT-MT300 was extremely simple. Without looking at the setup instructions (although I’d advise you to if it's your first time setting up a soundbar), I was able to get everything plugged in and up and running within minutes. Another recommendation is that if you’re planning on setting up the subwoofer underneath your couch; I would look at the instructions. The subwoofer can be placed either vertically or you could use the speaker pads that are included to have the subwoofer be placed horizontally.The whole system itself is definitely compact and a lot smaller compared to the LG soundbar I had previously. But ladies and gentlemen... DO NOT be fooled by its size! Sony again delivers a quality product to its electronics line. It performs well and the sound quality is excellent. I tested out the Bluetooth pairing and it was also easy to do. I love the fact that there were no sound skipping/stuttering at all in playing music with this soundbar. The difference I had was that the LG soundbar would ALWAYS skip music, even when my phone was right next to the soundbar… I did not experience that with the Sony HT-MT300. The Sony HT-MT300 has a couple of sound functions to choose from like music, movie, clear audio+, Dolby DRC function, voice, and night. It doesn’t seem to have as many as the LG soundbar I had but Sony has done an impressive job on getting the ones programmed “fine tuned”. I was able to play some music and test the difference out between selecting the sound functions of music versus movie (which it actually sounded better on the music setting of course). Then I went around and tested the difference by watching a movie and selecting the sound setting of movie versus music. The point I am trying to make is that sometimes those sound features don’t really make a difference; with the Sony HT-MT300 it did. Now comes the cons of the product; of course these are my opinions but I feel like I would need to share them with you. I personally feel like the Sony HT-MT300 is lacking a built-in digital display screen. Let me explain why. When you change your volume, or subwoofer level, or sound function; wouldn’t you want to know how high, how low, or if the setting you're changing is on or off? Because it doesn’t have a built-in digital display screen and doesn’t show on my TV what is going on when I am changing the settings on the soundbar; it can get a little frustrating. Even when changing sound functions by holding down a button on the remote, you would need to reference the operating instructions every time to make sure you’re doing it correctly and if it's on or off. Then you’re like wait.... Can’t you just use the APP (SongPal) that Sony has to offer? I downloaded the APP to try and resolve this “con” I had on the product. While it did show certain things being changed like the subwoofer level and what sound settings are on/off; I had huge issue(s) with the APP itself. When adjusting the volume on the remote for the soundbar and my iPhone had the APP installed and paired; it would also adjust the volume and ringer volume on my phone. I even tried closing out the APP on the phone but it still linked up and adjusted the volume on my phone when I was adjusting the volume on the remote for the soundbar. This made it extremely inconvenient because the only way around this is that I would have to disable my Bluetooth in order for it to stop syncing up with the soundbar. I keep my Bluetooth enabled because I have things like a Fit-bit that is always tracking everything I do and syncing and transferring data to my phone. The only other issue I had with the soundbar is the volume. Again since I couldn’t distinguish what my volume was; I didn’t know how loud my volume was. When switching between streaming T.V. on my Roku, Netflix, and streaming a movie from my phone; the volume was different between all of them. What I mean by that is I was watching T.V. with my Roku and decided to try out a movie and the volume was SO MUCH LOUDER when switching from T.V. to a movie; I literally scared my pregnant wife and she jumped up off the couch. I would also like to mention that I saw another review that someone stated the sound was out of sync when watching a movie on Netflix; I personally did not experience this at all. In conclusion, I would definitely recommend this product if you’re on the market looking for a soundbar to go with your T.V. I personally feel like the pros I had with the Sony HT-MT300 outweigh the cons. The sound quality on this thing is amazing and it adds a nice punch when you’re watching an action movie. Even if you’re just streaming music it sounds excellent. If you have guest over; they will be wowed. Compared to the LG soundbar I had; the Sony HT-MT300 definitely performs better. The only thing I wish is that Sony would’ve added a built-in digital display screen. If that built-in digital display screen was there; this product would’ve gotten a 5 out of 5 or a 10 out of 10 from me personally.

      Review Date: 5-4-2017 The setup for the Sony 2.1CH COMPACT SOUNDBAR WITH BLUETOOTH® TECHNOLOGY is easy for people who have ever connected soundbars before. If you haven’t, there are very easy to understand diagrams of how to plug everything in. I only needed to use two cables to the soundbar itself, an optical cable and the power supply cable (both detachable and included). The only other non-detachable cable that comes in the box is attached to the subwoofer and that is a power supply. One of the features of this bluetooth speaker is the ability to put the subwoofer under furniture such as a sofa (or in my case, a bed). You have to change some settings for this to work adequately using the provided instructions in the manual. That section of the manual is highly recommended that you save, in case you change the location of your subwoofer. I’m sure the documents are available online in case you misplace them, though. The performance of this bluetooth speaker is, without a doubt, one of the best I have tried. I own 2 other soundbars and this one gets surprisingly loud compared to the other two. I say it is surprising because in terms of length, it is much shorter than the ones I currently own. Yet even though it is short, the booming sound of the sound bar with the included subwoofer makes any room in the house feel like a theatre. If your concern is it being too loud, then there is a nocturnal option which reduces the necessary levels so that it’s still pleasant to hear without being too loud. This soundbar meets my expectations but there is one minor drawback that I find slightly lacking and that is the fact that the sound bar doesn’t have any display of any kind. Another brand of comparable price that I own does have an LCD display. On the Sony one (the one I am reviewing), you have to memorize the functions you are doing based on the number of blinking lights that its control causes it to do. It won’t be a big problem for most people, and it won’t be a big problem for me either, as after the initial settings, I don’t plan on messing around much with the soundbar other than to higher or lower the volume. The price for the speaker in terms of value is reasonable if your reason for buying its ease of use. This soundbar will be replacing my living room soundbar as the primary use for the family. The simple interface of the remote makes it easy for any family member to use without getting confused. I highly recommend this product for people who want a soundbar that occupies minimum space as the size of the soundbar itself (50 cm/19.7in) and the subwoofer (9.5cm/3.74 in) make it ideal for that. Another reason to buy it is it’s ease of installation and use.

      Thrilled to finally have movie quality sound

      • Verified PurchaserVerified Purchase
      • My Best Buy® MemberMember

      A few weeks ago I went into my Best Buy store intent on getting a budget bluetooth speaker we could use for both listening to music from our phones, and as a supplemental speaker for our 28" Samsung smart TV. I like Samsung TV's, but good sound quality seems to be a consistent problem for even their larger screens, and understanding dialogue is often problematic. I figured I'd find something with very impressive sound on sale at Best Buy with a little patience. I first picked up a UE Megaboom on a great special, but ended up being quite disappointed by both volume and sound quality despite some great reviews. WIthout going into that further, I returned the UE Megaboom to Best Buy after looking for another special on something a little bit better that would work with the outputs on my Samsung TV. I really didn't want to spend more than $150.00, but finally realized that was probably just a little too low for truly great sound and all the other features needed. I found something for about $200 on sale, and went into the store to try it out, ready to buy. I was grateful for the technical competence of the personnel there, because they quickly made me realize the one I was interested in wouldn't work with the optical output on my Samsung. This Sony was on sale, and only about $50 more than what I came in to spend. We live in a large tiny house, and space is a major consideration for anything we add. Most soundbars are about 35" wide, but at 20" wide this one fit our needs for an existing shelf. And the compact subwoofer can be used under our sofa, so doesn't take up any unnecessary space. Transitioning between phone music and TV sound is very easy, especially with the provided remote. And this Sony doesn't drop the Bluetooth signal at all. The UE Megaboom had tended to drop the signal occasionally, which was annoying. People have commented on the lack of more equalizer control with this Sony, but quite frankly we're satisfied with the couple of pre-sets designed into the unit. We usually use the MOVIE setting when watching TV, and the MUSIC setting for listening to Amazon Music or Pandora. And my wife is delighted with the richess of the sound....not even critical of what I ended up spending despite us being on a tight budget (We’re both retired). Music is important to her too. :-) I don't feel bad about spending $249.99 for this quality sound. After reading reviews and Googling for sales for weeks....and listening to a lot of speakers in stores.....I finally accepted that I was going to have to cough up a little extra for the sound quality I wanted. And since it was a great sale, I even ended up buying the extended Geek Squad warranty. The sales guy alleviated my concerns about "Will Best Buy even be here in 4 years with all the retail chains going under?" He explained a lot about how Best Buy is meeting the challenge of the Amazon juggernaut and other factors in the new economy....explanations which were reinforced when I went to read about Best Buy in the financial pages. Having worked with a company doing LED lighting retrofits, I am only too aware of how voltage transients can come out of nowhere and damage circuit boards. I have the comfort of knowing that if my speaker stops working for any reason in the next 4 years....the Geek Squad will either repair or replace it. I had stopped going to Best Buy for a few years, because I’d picked up the idea that they were a little too expensive considering the deals I could get online; but with price matching….brick and mortar locations for convenience…..and knowledgeable salespeople…..I will start haunting their aisles a little more frequently.

      Great for Small Spaces but not Perfect

      This compact sound bar can be a good companion to a TV in a bedroom or other smaller room that does not already have its own sound system. It can effectively upgrade your TV's built-in speakers into something that's more rich and dynamic, however most TV speakers are poor sounding to begin with. While it's no substitute for a good receiver and 5.1 speaker setup the S-Force Pro surround emulation actually does a good job in simulating surround sound effects. I'm not sure how it works since I know it's coming from this little bar sitting under my TV but at the very beginning of the Empire Strikes Back for example I can hear the probes behind me as they are dispatched from the belly of a Star Destroyer. When paired with my particular TV I noticed an improvement in dialog clarity (ability to understand what is being said) and much better music quality. My bedroom TV has Roku built in so I used the optical output from the TV to the soundbar. The subwoofer is hit or miss...sometimes it sounds great and I want to turn up the bass (there is a separate bass control on the remote) and sometimes at full bass volume it was a bit distracting and I had to turn it down. Seems that the sub mostly sounds good for music tracks but can be a bit distorted in action movies. My main issues with this system are the lack of an LCD screen and no HDMI inputs at all. While it does have little LED indicators on top that react when you push a button on the remote it is impossible to determine what volume it's set at or whether features such as Night or Voice are actually turned on or off. The lack of HDMI is more about future interoperability and functionality than actual sound quality. Optical audio is 100% digital and in no way inferior to HDMI however it is becoming less and less common on devices as HDMI is so prevalent. Optical out was omitted on the latest version of the Apple TV for example. I didn't try the USB or analog inputs. Bluetooth is extremely easy to use though and works as you'd expect. Without HDMI you also don't get to use some advanced features that could make up for the lack of indicators. For example, most recent TVs and streaming devices are able to control the volume and power of connected sound equipment through HDMI, and will then display the volume on the TV. Also, without this you are stuck using two remotes or a universal one to control both TV and sound bar. Pros: Compact Easy to Setup Subwoofer can be placed under furniture Bluetooth Surround Sound Emulation Cons: Weak subwoofer No volume / feature indicators No HDMI input Would only recommend to someone who wants or needs the compact form factor and can live with its quirks. However, at this price range there are other products out there that do not have these shortcomings and perhaps even better sound.

      OK for a 2.1 system

      I chose this soundbar because of space limitations. This unit was on sale and sounds good in the store with the manufacturers dedicated sound track that maximizes the capability of the unit. I use this mainly for watching movies and it is far better than the TV audio, but far short of a surround system. Because of the small width of the soundbar there is not enough separation of left and right channels. The wireless subwoofer is adequate and adds some depth, but barely even at the subwoofer's maximum level. Also the wireless distance of the subwoofer from main unit is limited and I had to locate the subwoofer in a visible area of the living room (8ft against wall) and not where I wanted (12ft between couch and end table). I could get it to connect at the couch but it required I pull the subwoofer out in front of the couch and then place it back after it connected. It would hold the connection while in use, but if I turned off the subwoofer and back on it would not connect unless I pulled it back out. There are no controls for Treble, Bass, or equalizer. Watching movies via the TV speakers always causes movie dialog audio sound to be low and I am constantly turning the volume up to hear dialog and back down when other sounds are now too loud. The Sony soundbar has a "Clear Voice" setting that does help with movie dialog without having to adjust the volume, like a center channel. Great feature! The unit can only decode Dolby Digital and PCM, not DTS. The unit has no display window to indicate volume level or other settings like clear voice. You have to watch the blinking lights on top of the soundbar to see what mode is set. This is an inconvenience, but not a deal breaker. There is no HDMI in or out only Optical and analog audio in, therefore you cannot control volume via the TV remote. This is fine for what I use it for. It can play USB MP3 and Bluetooth Android/iPhone which now allows me to have a convenient music source in the living room. If you are limited on space and require a small soundbar to give you better stereo audio, this will do the trick. I cannot recommend this soundbar at the retail price of $350. At this price point it should have HDMI ARC, a display settings window, codec for DTS, better stereo separation/surround sound effect and a better subwoofer. However, at the $200 sale price it's good a buy.

      Setup: Setting up this Sony Soundbar System was quite simple. However, I did need to do some reading about the various settings available and how to change them. There is no display on the soundbar to show what setting it is on, but that can be viewed in the “SongPal” mobile app. Design: I am impressed with the sleek design, which does not seem to compromise sound quality, which I elaborate on below. My favorite part about the design is that the subwoofer is wireless and can be placed upright or laying on its side. This provides placement flexibility, and there is even a “sofa mode” setting that optimizes the bass if you decide to place the subwoofer under a couch. Sound Quality: As I mentioned, I was pleasantly surprised with the high-quality sound that is produced from this compact soundbar system. I have heard better, but this is a great value for the price and the size. This is the smallest soundbar and subwoofer system that I have seen, yet the sound quality is on part with some larger/more expensive systems. Additionally, there are a number of sound settings that allow you to fine tune your audio experience, which is a nice touch. Features: I find myself using the Bluetooth feature quite often to play music. The music fills the room and carries well throughout the main floor of our home. Until now, I frequently used a standalone Bluetooth speaker for my music, but now this Sony soundbar is my go-to speaker because the audio quality is exponentially better. Pairing was simple, and if your phone supports NFC, it is even easier. Verdict: If you do not currently have a soundbar hooked up to your TV, this Sony Soundbar System is a no brainer. It has fantastic sound quality, Bluetooth connectivity, and a sleek design. Although I have heard better soundbar/subwoofer systems, they are much pricier, and I truly believe this is a great value for the price and size.

      Good overall, but lacking little things

      • Tech Insider NetworkTech Insider Network
      • My Best Buy® MemberMember

      I want to start off with what I think is the biggest flaw of this sound system, the very annoying lack of inputs available. Be warned now if you get this unit that it only has 3 input methods, an optical audio link, a standard headphone plug type in, and Bluetooth. The latter is really only useful if you want to pair the sound bar with your phone for audio output (and possibly an apple TV or other TV box if it supports Bluetooth sound out). The one major thing that is missing for an input is HDMI in with ARC support. The lack of any HDMI inputs or passthroughs means you may be limited on how you can use the sound bar if your TV is of the type that does not have an optical audio out. Please note however that you can purchase a converter if your TV has digital audio out to go from the digital audio coaxial out to the optical audio coaxial in but they cost about 30-50 dollars and its an added expense. I think this issue could have easily been avoided if they would have included either HDMI or coaxial digital audio in as well as the other connection type. Due to the lack of input types I had to find a creative way to get the audio off of the devices I use to the sound bar but once I got that figured out everything else seemed worth it. Sound Quality on this unit is except-able for the price range but not perfect. At times the included wireless sub seems to add a bit of echo to the sound making some sounds seem a bit like they are in an amphitheater. This can be avoided if you leave the sub near the TV though that seems like a shame considering they market a "Couch Mode" with the unit being wireless. Obviously location in the room and surrounding objects can affect the way the sub sounds so pick an area of your room that won't offer lots of reflective sound surfaces and you will probably get better sound out of the sub. As for the sound bar itself I enjoyed the several different modes the bar offers for music, movies, and night mode. Overall quality was good if not a little tinny at times but it pairs well with the sound of the sub, and for a 2.1 channel system fills a surprisingly large room with understandable audio even at higher volumes. The only think I wish this unit had on the audio side was the ability to have your own mix adjustments for how you like to listen to music. For some music the mids seems to be lacking at times and it would have been nice to be able to turn down the treble just a bit. If your looking for a simple 2.1 system to use in place of bad TV speakers this is a good unit to choose. Since getting this unit we have started using it all the time instead of the TV speakers just because the sound is that much better, and if your TV supports optical audio out hooking up the bar is very very simple. Just give the bar power attache the single optical audio cable (which was included in the box, a very nice touch by Sony) and you are good to go. Very quick and easy.

      Small Sound Bar, Small Sound

      Sony HT/MT300 is a small form sound bar that would sound best in front of a smaller 32"-40" in. TV in a small enclosed area like a small bedroom or a den. Sound bar itself is very small and compact compared with most sound bars on the market. Same goes for the wireless subwoofer, thin and square. Remote is pretty standard remote, I used my Harmony remote with no issues. Build quality is up to Sony standards, everything fits and works well, super easy to set up. Note there is no HDMI input only digital optical and Bluetooth connections. Bluetooth worked perfectly, pairing was easy. Subwoofer comes already paired, just turn the power on and it paired right away. As for sound the small form factor of the sound bar limits the power and output of the sound bar. In a larger room the sound kind of gets lost in the space of the room. Sound quality is good, clean and voices are easy to understand. Sound needs more punch but at only 100 watts of power it's going to limit the system. The system sounds much better in a smaller enclosed space than a large open area. But I'm sure that was the intention when it was designed. Subwoofer is adjustable either horizontal or vertical so you can slide the subwoofer under a couch or piece of furniture to hide it. The problem is the subwoofer is pretty underpowered and in a horizontal position under my couch it was barely noticeable and didn't put out much bass at all. It was a bit better vertically in an open space. All in all if you have a small space with a small TV then the HT/MT300 will work fairly well in your situation. If you have the space and a 40" or larger TV and have the room for full size sound bar in front it would be a better choice. Recommended if your limited on space and have a smaller TV you want to use it with.
