Experience the thrill of the cinema, with the Sony HTCT80 soundbar and subwoofer package.
Powerful sub, separate slim soundbar
By putting the bass unit in a separate subwoofer, the Sony HTCT80 soundbar has the freedom to be one of the slimmest in its class. Thanks to Virtual Surround Sound it still manages to give a spacious and immersive sound with that separate subwoofer providing the rumble. Unlike the sound from your TV, with the Sony HTCT80 you can now feel the action rather than just seeing it.
S- Master digital amp and wireless streaming
Acting as the perfect complement for the dynamic speaker system is Sony's S-Master HX digital amplifier. Designed with simplicity in mind, the result is not only more power but also significantly less distortion. When you combine Bluetooth with NFC, streaming your music becomes easier than ever. Simply swipe your smartphone for NFC pairing alongside, or use standard Bluetooth pairing if your phone's not NFC equipped.
Got a music collection saved on a USB stick, MP3, smartphone or tablet? Then you can get quick and easy access with the Sony's USB port. Handily mounted at the front of the unit, connecting up your device is quick and easy. Once connected, the Sony's remote allows easy access to enjoying High-Resolution Audio across all of your devices.
Standing just 52mm tall, the HTCT80's low profile won't block your TV's image. In some cases, the soundbar may even be able to be slid under the TV (depending on TV stand design). Alternatively, the soundbar can easily be wall mounted for an equally discreet look.
For a big sound from a discreet package, let the Sony HTCT80 transform your home entertainment.

Speaker/interconnect cables included with the package. Please note that in most cases, these are basic cables only and would often benefit by being upgraded.
Soundbars are bar-shaped speakers designed to fit in front of or below your TV.
Sound bases are box-shaped speakers, designed to fit beneath your TV.
Does it have an Infra Red (IR) repeater? This means that it won't matter if the soundbar blocks your TV's remote control sensor. The signal will be detected by a sensor on the soundbar and relayed through to the TVs sensor.
Learning TV volume
Does the soundbar/base learn your TV's volume controls? A learning IR (Infra Red) sensor will learn your TV's remote volume control - meaning you only need your TV's remote, and not the soundbar/base one, for most TV watching.

Good value Sony.
This offers a large improvement in sound quality from my Sony 40" TV, with surprisingly deep bass. I use this in my bedroom where it's sound is more than enough. For the money, I'd certainly recommend this product as a budget, but quality item. One thing worth noting; the power cable is very short, perhaps only just over a metre long.

Does exactly what is asked of it
I got this for a wall-mounted TV in my bedroom. So it didn't have to be loud or clear. This is keenly priced, and delivers the sound quality expected within the price range. Thank you Richer Sounds for an honest opinion on the product, and a nice easy sales experience. Excellent store staff at London Bridge.

Nice clear quality sound, but not much power
At the right price this sound bar makes a sensible purchase. Nice base sound but not a whole heap of power.

I received this soundbar free with a Sony Bravia TV.
I expected it to provide a bit of oomph but found it very lacking in power. Used in conjunction with the TV's speakers it did improve the sound slightly.
Also this device does not link with the TV, so Its own remote needs to be used.
There is no indication of volume level, however, this should not be a problem as the maximum volume is so low.
This soundbar would probably be suitable for a bedroom, but if you want a decent sound experience you should look for something better.
