I have been subsequent the Sony HT-CT260 for a while now but made a decision to hold out for an upgrade as I wished an HDMI enter/output. Sony finally determined to do the adjust. This product is nearly the exact same as the Sony HT-CT260 but with and HDMI enter rather of a the outdated coaxial enter. This audio bar has great audio good quality, comes with a wi-fi subwoofer, has distant management infra red pass by means of, has an optical enter and a 3.5mm analog input, has treble and bass controls along with a number of seem modes, has three distinct display modes (on, on when you make any modifications then goes again off and off), has a night time mode for much less impression sound, and greatest of all this audio bar is priced at a extremely acceptable $249 (at the time of this review). If you are looking for an excellent mid priced sound bar, do by yourself a favor and test this just one out very first.
I forgot to mention that this unit also has Bluetooth, so you can stream music from your phone which is a huge as well as. I tried out this with my Blackberry Bold 9900 and with my Samsung Galaxy S4 and it worked flawlessly.
I noticed the volume on the unit was significantly very low when in contrast to my Yamaha YAS-one zero one seem bar. If you encounter the exact same issue, go into the sound options and disable the “effect” feature as it in some way lessens the volume by a ton. With the “effect” feature on, I would have the volume at max (50) and it wouldn’t seem be be really loud but as soon as you disable the characteristic, which arrives activated by default, every little thing would seem to comes alive and the volume goes quite large. Sony genuinely did a good job with this device. When compared to my Yamaha YAS-101 audio bar, this device appears considerably much better but the Yamaha sounds a lot louder. The Yamaha seems to emphasis much more on mid-array and volume but lacks treble
