Conclusion: I am super pleased with the items I purchased. My thanks goes out to Jared Ratliff. He was knowledgeable in all aspects of my purchase and took the time to understand my desires and expectations. He then demonstrated the sound bar and subwoofer and assured me that it would more than satisfy my needs. He was right. The sound is amazing, like sitting in a movie theater. The system is easy to set up and creates a lifelike experience with the sound.
Pros: Good Power Output, Great Sound Quality, Easy To Connect, Attractive Design, Powerful Bass, Easy Set-Up
Summary: I bought this sound bar not knowing what to really expect sound wise when I got it. I plugged it in, set it up and then with minor tweeking I was able to get a sou7nd that makes you watch TV even more than before. The sound is awesome and I didn't have bad sound before on my Sony 52 inch Bravia TV. I found that if you just disable the effects that the sound you get is perfect both base and treble wise. And the volume level is more than you would ever want. Good job Sony!
Excerpt: This soundbar is an excellent buy for people who aren't much of an audiophile. The sound quality may not be the best out there but it still sounds awesome. The bass is thundering, the sound is very loud and has good clarity. The price is very affordable and overall a very good buy.
Summary: I purchased this at the first of the year but wanted to listen to it awhile before I reviewed it. I appreciate great audio, but unfortunately I have a budget and the CT260H seemed to fit that based on the reviews I read. Based on the high ratings, I expected it to sound awesome. While I am not disappointed, it does not sound as good as a high end sound bar, but very good for this price point.
Pros: Very good sound at this price point. Wireless sub works well too and allows location flexibility.
Cons: Not ARC compatible with all TVs. Menu could be easier to navigate. Supplied optical cable too short.
Summary: I know little about electronics, so I read and I asked advisor for recommendation. He send me a link and I read some more and compared. I bought the product, I made a call to get assistance for setting it. I like how it looks and how it sounds.
Summary: Bought the Sony soundbar to upgrade the listening experience of the Tv, which it does well. Bass woofer makes music and movies much more enjoyable, and fills the room with sound. Did not want to go to the expense of a whole room surround, with receiver, speakers, and all, so tried to get by with bar. You definetly sacrifice sound with this cheaper way out, but for the price, an improvement.
Cons: Does not give the separation and effects of higher priced surround system
Summary: Excellent product that lives up to its name and reputation. Great sound with the sub woofer and love the ability for my tv remote to pass through the sound bar to control the tv. Great feature and great product.
Pros: Great sound, ease of install, tv remote works even with sound bar blocking the tv on & off button
Cons: The only negative I found was that i had to order a coaxial to optical converter. Otherwise it was a piece of cake to install.
