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.

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?

Lacking Power

anonymous, Woolworths
18 May 2014
  • Summary: For a 300 Watt unit, the sound although clear lacks volume. The controls are hard to set up too. It will only produce stereo sound - don't expect the 'Surround' sound to happen - it won't. I had hoped it would be a replacement for my Panasonic 5.1 Surround Sound system, but there is no comparison. I have gone back to the Panasonic. For true 'surround sound' you need a system with back speakers to achieve the effect.
  • Pros: Nice looking, Nice Sound When Working, Faulty

  • Summary: I do not know if it is the sound quality coming out of the telly or the equipment but it is not brilliant certainly not worth spending the £200+.

Not that impressed

Juju beanz, Amazon
11 January 2014
  • Summary: Bass keeps coming and going and the only difference this makes to the sound is more bass which is actually to much bass. Surround sound is disappointing for the money, I've heard cheaper products that sound a lot better. I actually get a clearer better sound from my plasma tv. The only good thing I liked with this was sending music to it from my iPhone now that was handy but sound was not impressive.
