Summary: I don't care if this is the "old version" or lacks xyz feature...spent 3 months researching sound bars, surround sound systems, receivers, BR players, et al. My decade old, 1000 Watt JVC SS System finally bought the farm.
Summary: My wife and I are extremely happy with this product and it exceeds our expectations. We began looking at different soundbars a few weeks ago as a possible solution to our growing frustrations with the poor and distorted sounds coming from the tiny speakers within our new Samsung 50 inch LCD TV.
Summary: I went from a Sony 7.1 to this awesome Sony 2.1 I got it like like new but more like used from Amazon for my 60" Sony lx900 3dtv 240HZ. soundbar is awesome & loud sounds like a 5.1. Sub is powerful & nice. Sound from cable Tv is great.
Summary: Great terrific speakers!! Perfect for your bedroom! Its well built, strong, loud, and has a clean and crisp sound. I live in a three story house, these speakers are just perfect! Because my siblings rooms are right next to mine, so they could here anything.
Summary: A great sound bar surround sound system for someone looking for the greatest quality at the lowest price in a unit that doesn't take up too much space. I live in a small apartment and wanted a surround sound system that was small but effective.
Summary: My wife and I had our eyes on a BOSE Cinemate Series II System that runs about $600. I've listened to it in-store at a BOSE shop and it does sound great. However, I am not a big fan of seeing too many wires from electronics so I wanted to get a simple soundbar+subwoofer set-up.
Summary: Setup was pretty easy. Sound is really good. Don't buy this if you are expecting stellar 5.1 sound. Buy this if you want an excellent sounding tv that fills the room with full, clear, balanced sound.
Sony HTCT550W 3D Sound Bar Home Theater System with Wireless Subwoofer
23 July 2012
Summary: Although the HTCT550W does not perform as well as my 7.1 surround system, it is not designed to do so. That said, it does exactly what I was expecting and maybe even a little more. Adjusting the base, treble, and subwoofer are easy.
Summary: I set this up in a home classroom environment. The speaker bar is installed right under a whiteboard, and you don't even notice that it's a speaker. The sound quality is excellent. When not using it as a class, I love to stream my music through Apple TV to the unit.
Summary: Like most others I read the review from (LDB???) and applied the suggested settings and it sounded great. Out-of-the-box, this unit will sound hollow like a tin can. I hope if you read this review, you need to adjust the levels to bring out the full potential of this unit.
