Sony HT-CT550W sound bar review: Lots of inputs, but falls short of cheaper competitors

CNET
2 October 2012
  • Summary: Consider the Sony HT-CT550W if you need a sound bar with a lot of connectivity, but it's otherwise not worth its premium price.
  • Cons: Unlike other budget sound bars, the HT-CT550W requires a separate head unit, which vitiates some of the benefits of a minimalist sound bar system in the first place. And although it's priced at a premium, its sound quality is not as good as that of other budget competitors. Also, the included remote is very complicated for a relatively basic device.

Sony HT-CT550W sound bar review: Lots of inputs, but falls short of cheaper competitors

CNET
23 May 2012
  • Summary: Consider the Sony HT-CT550W if you need a sound bar with a lot of connectivity, but it's otherwise not worth its premium price.
  • Pros: The Sony HT-CT550W is packed with more connectivity than your average sound bar, with three HDMI inputs and three digital audio inputs. The sound bar itself feels surprisingly well-made, with a stylish, refined look.
  • Cons: Unlike other budget sound bars, the HT-CT550W requires a separate head unit, which vitiates some of the benefits of a minimalist sound bar system in the first place. And although it's priced at a premium, its sound quality is not as good as that of other budget competitors. Also, the included remote is very complicated for a relatively basic device.

Test: Sony HT-CT550W (Soundbar)

CHIP Online
22 September 2012
  • Conclusion: Die Soundbar Sony HT-CT550W kämpft mit akustischen Problemen, die in der Summe nur zu einer befriedigenden Note bei der Klangqualität führen. Es fehlt durchgehend an Präzision und tonaler Homogenität, weshalb das Set den integrierten Ton guter TV-Geräte kaum aufwerten kann. Angesichts der modernen Technik des Systems ist das schwach; das Steuergerät bietet viele Anschlüsse, Bedienung und Ausstattung sind insgesamt gut.
  • Pros: Flache Soundbar auch für Wandmontage, Verwaltet viele Quellen inklusive HDMI, Drahtloser Subwoofer
  • Cons: Wenig präziser, mittenbetonter Klang, Grundtonlücke, Subwoofer dröhnt leicht
