Sony HT-CT150

 

For 2010, Sony released an updated version, the HT-CT150, and little has changed on the features front. Sure, its HDMI inputs are now 3D compatible, but otherwise the feature selection is nearly identical, which is fine since the competition still...

Three HDMI inputs; excellent sound quality for a sound bar home theater system; no AV receiver required; capable of switching between six devices

IR receiver on the subwoofer limits its placement options; subwoofer isn't wireless; cluttered remote

Sony's HT-CT150 sound bar home theater system sounds great and is way ahead of the competition with its three HDMI inputs; however, its IR receiver limits the subwoofer's placement options.

Combining powerful output, a broad sound stage and a wide variety of connectivity options, the Sony HT-CT150 sound bar brings superior home theater sound to your living room. Three HMDI ports ensure phenomenal sound quality, while the HT-CT150's...

Exceptional power output and HDMI connectivity result in superior sound quality

The wired subwoofer limits how far you can place it from the sound bar

"Great Performance for the price"

 

I bought this to hook up with my Panasonic VT50, Cable Set Top Box, and

low profile, good price, numerous HDMI hook ups, great performance

sub isn't wirless, no on screen setup menu unless you have a Bravia TV

"Good if you don't need surround sound!"

 

I went from a 7.1 channel 1000W Onkyo system with a 10" Sub, to this Sony HT-CT150. So, I lowered my expectations as it is not fair to compare a $550 1000W 7 speaker and a hefty receiver system with this unit meant for small spaces. So, I found it good...

1). Sounds surprisingly good, clear and crisp

1) Remote can only control SONY products

"Dependable Sony quality for a competitive price"

 

Exactly what I expected for the money. I bought it for my master bedroom and it does a good job filling it with sound. I would say the sound quality is above average but I'm kind of wishing I'd spent a few more hundred and got better system. That's not...

Good theatre kick from subwoofer. Ample bass

Wired subwoofer. Could use a few more amps.

"Very good sound from a compact sound bar"

 

I've owned this unit for about year before I upgraded to a 5.1 HTIB almost a year ago. I didn't realize that CNET had reviewed this model until now. This unit has been out for some time.

Very good sound

Mid range and trebble seem a bit muffled

Consumer review by:

"Great product for the price"

 

Great sound quality, good sub power, HDMI connectivity is great if you have more than one peripheral (ie cable box, apple TV, blu ray player, etc.).

Doesn't provide true surround sound.

"Love it, great for small spaces."

 

Does not take up a lot of space

So far none
