I don't think you can beat it for the price!

crl116, Ebay

  • Summary: I was looking for a low-profile sound bar with a wireless sub-woofer that had decent sound and didn't cost an arm-and-a-leg. This one fit the bill. It sounds good and the low profile does not block the TV's remote sensor. The only complaint I have is that with this hooked up, the TV's "Smart Volume" feature, which keeps the volume of commercials at the same level as the programing, no longer works. But aside from that I am pleased with my purchase.

DO NOT buy if you were planning on using bluetooth at all!

  • Summary: My biggest issue with this sound bar is the bluetooth. My phone can't be more then 5-8 feet away before the sound starts cutting in and out in the most infuriating way. I returned the first one I bought just thinking it may have been a quality control issue but the second was just as bad. I have a $50 portable bluetooth speaker that has a MUCH better connection sitting in the exact spot this sound bar is.
  • Pros: Sounds great.
  • Cons: Bluetooth range is horrible and connections are limited

Works great but sound level is low

Thom Nash, Amazon

  • Summary: Unit is easy to setup using the provided fiber optic cable. Sounds great but the level is low....even when max'd out....equivalent to the TV at half volume. Other issue it interfers with the cable/TV remote.....can't change sources (DVR to DVD back to DVR). Can only change volume with provided remote (versus the cable remote). Therefore 2 remotes now required...not good.

Not a techie so it may work better than we think it does.

  • Summary: It is ok. Sound is definitely better than from the TV itself, but not really crisp like we hoped. It is either too loud or too soft. Just can't seem to get it just right.

Excellent Sound Quality, Missing A Needed Feature

tmp, Amazon
20 April 2013
  • Summary: The product shipped fast, set up easy and has more options then we really need. The sound quality is excellent, however its missing a key feature, compared to the polk we already own. This system does not "learn" your cable programming as our polk does. Had I known that we would have purchased another polk, we purchased this because of the Amazon reviews.

An adequate Sony soundbar system, but without HDMI audio inputs...

APC Reviews "APC Reviews", Amazon

  • Summary: The "Sony HTCT260 Sound Bar Home Theater System" is good quality system with a number of interesting features, including Bluetooth and a wireless sub woofer. The big drawback for this reviewer is that it has no HDMI inputs or pass through, and no multi source input switching. The Sony HTCT260 has only a single optical/digital audio input and no audio or video pass through. Why is that important, at least to this reviewer?

Actors stop mumbling

  • Summary: We bought this to improve the soundtrack on movies and now we can hear the dialogue much clearer. The sub-woofer is good but terrestrial programmes can be spoilt by excessive bass (eg Pointless) and so we do not use this for all programmes. This unit works well with the bluetooth output of music from my phone.

Not bad, but...

Gary, Amazon

  • Summary: Great added TV volume for small rooms like mine, but the sound is easily distorted at middle to higher volumes when listening to music. Seems like the bass is rattling something, and I listen to country music with little bass. Can't imagine the sound with other types of music. Still happy since it does what I wanted, but would be happier if it would at least have the ability to go further.
