By summitboyVerified Reviewer from ca on 9/19/2013

I have been a Sony loyalist for 30 years. I've had Walkmans, stereos, VHS/CD players and currently have 3 Sony trinitrons. I bought this sound bar and a 50"r450 bravia to replace my 36" HD Trinitron that died. Bad idea, the new TV and sound bar don't hold a candle to my old TV. The reviews for the sound bar were overwhelmingly great. I disagree. I thought Bose systems were bass heavy but this sound bar is extreme. Even with the bass turned all the way down, its still overpowering. With an iPod hooked up and the volume maxed it not very loud at all! Thought I could use it as a stereo, not a chance. The sound on just my old TV way much better than the whole soundbar. I have it unplugged and its now just a dust collector. I was a huge Sony fan, but not anymore. These new products just don't compare to the old ones. I think I'm moving on to another brand, I've had good luck LG appliances, think I'll go that route next

 
Just what we wanted
By GGortVerified Reviewer from Florida on 5/22/2013
Bottom Line:
Yes

This sound bar was ideal for our needs. It replaced an older sony sound bar that just didn't cut it in our great room.

 
Powerful Sound Bar - Put Subwoofer in Corner!
By cmttu08Verified Reviewer from San Antonio, TX on 5/5/2013
Bottom Line:
Yes

I replaced my Sony 5.1 Sound System (HTSS360) with this sound bar and love it! I never quite got the rear satellite speakers setup on the old system (I'm no audiophile) so I decided a simpler setup would be better. Didn't want to run the wires. This sound bar doesn't disappoint. I had to experiment with the location of the subwoofer to get the most "thump." Thank you Sony for making this wireless! Made placement a snap. I found the corner of the room gave me the most bass. I like the Bravia Sync feature with the TV and Blu-Ray, but I found the navigating the sound bar's menu annoying...you'd think they could send something up to the TV or have an app to configure instead of clicking around on the little 1 line LED screen, but after I got everything setup the way I thought sounded best I don't think I'll have to go in there again. I'm using both 1.4 and 1.3 HDMI cables and don't notice a difference in the sound from the connected devices. I also like how it has an FM Radio built in, some other sound bars I looked at didn't have that feature. The build quality is great and it feels solid...they ship it well protected too!

 
Sounds ok but
By NJSonyPhanVerified Reviewer from South NJ on 2/10/2013
Bottom Line:
No

I purchased this unit hoping it would replace a home theater receiver, but found the limitations too great. I was pairing this with a Sony Bravia TV, using the HDMI interfaces. I found the HDMI audio to be 1 second delayed with only 1 adjustment option on the amplifier for 'Sync Video'. Setting this option to 1 caused the audio to be 2 seconds out of sync, instead of 1. When using the HDMI and ARC #Audio Return Channel# feature of the HDMI, this was more prevalent. If I was using the TOS interface, I did not notice the delay problem, but lost the auto switching ability, and have extra cables. In addition, when using the ARC, almost all the audio options are disabled in the TV, relying on the audio controls of the AV system, which are sub-par in the the CT550W. They're ok, but not great. According to the manual, the system would choose the correct sound field automatically, but all I saw was 'standard', and rarely liked the sound field. #IE: Playing Pandora should be 2Ch Stereo, while Netflix should Probably be movie, but if using ARC, this is not changeable by the user# Using TOS, the TV provides the options, but disables the auto speaker disable, resulting in a very poor audio echo if the TV speakers were not muted.

 
Great addition
By TheChosenOneVerified Reviewer from Md. on 1/16/2013
Bottom Line:
Yes

I have had mine well over a year now and have had no problems at all. I first had it hooked up to my Sony 40" and now have it running sound for my hx750. With my ps3 acting as my do everything 3D/blue ray player and Bravia sync., it's the perfect set up.
