Product Reviews for Sony HT-CT150 Virtual 5.1 Channel 32" 3D sound bar Home Theater System
from Lake Forest, Ca on 4/6/2012
Purchased to up grade my sound system & my SONY BRAVIA and SONY BLU-RAY. The sound quality is so much better. I can actually turn down the volume, not have it as loud. It was very easy to set up. Highly recommend this Sony sound bar with subwoofer and experience a whole new sound.

That is the ONLY thing I don't like about the sound bar. I bought the Phillips 52 in plasma two years ago and really FELL IN LOVE with the ASL system. No more annoying commercials blasting at you, as well as LEVEL sound when you changed channels. With the sound bar that feature is not available and I'm back to adjusting the sound every time a commercial comes on or i change channels on the TV THAT IS A BIG DEFECT in this old man's mind.
The Best Sound Bar I've Seen Yet

The system is great. I don't understand why people are negatively rating this system for functions that are clearly stated. Do people understand the fact that they may have to read the manual? The bass is solid, but I did notice that I had to turn up the subwoofer level a few notches (I did +5) because I think the bass is what really gives the experience that punch. The sound overall is great, and I often forget that there are no speakers behind or beside me. Two of my coworkers made the investment in this system, and they have nothing but great things to say about it as well. I did have to turn to the manual and read as to why some sound was not working initially from a few devices. Turns out that the compression my devices were using was not compatible with fiber optic, and so I had to readjust accordingly. I chose to pursue the fiber optic route because my TV has the output for it, thus allowing me to route all my devices through the TV, and then sends the audio via fiber optic to the sound bar. I understand that you get the DTS HD 5.1 through HDMI, but honestly, the DTS 5.1 sounds just fine through fiber optic. I also had to adjust the latency of my TV because by default it was delaying the audio by 100ms. Why? I don't know, but I put it at 0ms, and it was smooth sailing from there. If people want a workaround for all their devices that use coaxial or composite wiring, consider using your TV as a converter (this requires thinking outside the box...) A TV that you actually spend a good chunk of cash on will AT LEAST have composite output (while higher-end models will do fiber optic or an HDMI with audio only), so for those who are whining about the sound bar system not having enough ports are just being lazy in doing work on their part. It's a good system; buy it if you don't want to invest in the big receivers and extra speakers scattered across the room.

I bought this sound bar after watching a video recommendation on CNET and I am glad that I did. The best part of this thing is the HDMI switch. Run all of your HDMI components to the subwoofer, one HDMI cable to the TV and watch the magic. I have a new 55" Sony LED-LCD and it works flawlessly with it. The Bravia Sync works perfectly with my Sony Blu-Ray play and Direct-TV HD DVR box. The satellite controller will change the volume so I pretty much use one remote. I only need to get the soundbar remote to change the pre-set sound "types".

Easy To Install, Good Value, Sleek design.
I love this sound bar system! The sound is much better quaility than the tv speakers and suprisingly more options than I thought when I bought it. I think this is perfect for a small room although its not true 5.1 surround sound it offers a good value for the product.
