Wide choice of installation options
With a variety of installation options, the SC-HTB770 is one of the most versatile soundbar systems on the market. Whether you use it as a soundbar or free-standing separates, on the wall or on a TV stand, it can be integrated into your living room with minimum fuss - perfect if you have limited space to play with.
But even better news is its terrific sound quality - powerful, poised and expansive, it makes movies sound ten times more exciting than any TV.
Great Sound Bar for a Great Price
I was in the market for a better sound system since my TV speakers weren't loud enough for me. I decided on a Sound Bar because I wasn't looking to spend a huge amount for a home theater system. Also, sq footage-wise, my living room is not that big. I ended up with this Sony HTCT260, since my TV is a Sony as well and I wanted to pair up the remotes. I chose this particular model because of the wireless Sub.
Overall The sound is great. Very clear and crisp dialogue.
Ease of set up
The Sony HTCT260 offers some good features like the Blu-tooth option that works really well when streaming audio from a iphone or any other Blu-tooth device, which makes this an ideal docking sound system but without the dock. Set up is very straight forward and you can be up and running in minutes, the functionality of the wireless sub is ideal for those that are short on space and donâ?? t the untidiness of wires running everywhere as this can be placed anywhere in your room.
Solid product for the price range
This product really met our expectations. We were putting no small change into a new Samsung TV and couldn't afford to upgrade a 10 year old A/V system from the ground up at the same time. By staying with the same manufacturer as the TV, the unit interfaced flawlessly into one remote control and we're sitting here delightfully enjoying a 3D movie. You could easily spend 3 times this amount for a clean A/V unit, speakers, and a 3D Blue Ray player.
Surprisingly rich sound
Got this to augment the sound coming from our 52" LCD TV, which has meager speakers. HD set top box and Blu-ray player connected to the Yamaha with optical toslink cables. For action movies the sound has good punch with the bass remaining tight and manages to fill all corners of a spacious open floor plan living room-kiitchen area. Shows with dialogue emphasis get the "voice" option and this works very well.
Great Sound Bar and Sub
Got this brand new for a steal off of CL. I was a little apprehensive due to the lack of reviews of this product but decided to roll the dice...and I am glad I did. Like other reviews, the sound that this bar produces is clear and crisp. Super easy to set up. I have this baby hooked up to my Sony Bravia 46" in my large living room and it does not disappoint. Besides audio from shows and movies, I cranked out music from my PS3 and it sounded great.
Good bass performance
The Panasonic SC-HTB20 is a neat package and the flexibility of its design - it can be used either as a soundbar or traditional 2.1 system - helps broaden its appeal. It's also a good sonic performer for the price, but we can't help feeling it would have been easier to use if Panasonic had kited it out with a proper screen.
Build quality and versatility out of the box is among its greatest attributes
I must admit, I didn't have high hopes for Panasonic's new roughly $200 HTB20 soundbar system. That was my mistake. For what it is, the HTB20 is quite good. As a $200 upgrade to any HDTV purchase, the HTB20 doesn't disappoint and is worth every penny. I have a dedicated home theater, and yet I have kept the HTB20 hooked up just for casual viewing or listening when I don't want to fire up all the equipment or go through all the pageantry required for big-time movie watching.
Great, depending on intended purpose
So, in all it really depends on what you are looking for. If you are an audiophile with cutting edge equipment looking for a sound system, you might be better served by something else. If you're in the market for a nice multi-disc unit that can reliably play your ever-expanding collection of divx videos, and deliver great sound - all without breaking the bank, I would recommend it all the way.
Crisp dialogue and strong bass
The SC-HTB550 is a major step up from last year's SC-HTB520, not just in the flexibility of its design, but also in the array of connections on offer. Changing some of the more in-depth settings can be a bit obtuse, but most of the main features are still easy to use. And when it comes to delivering good bass effects and clean, clear dialogue, it's up with the best soundbars we've tested. As a result, if you're looking for a modestly priced soundbar or 2.1 system, we think it's a good option.
Virtual surround sound
A symphony in black plastic, the Panasonic SC-HTB550 confounds expectations. The system, which comprises a wireless subwoofer, 95cm soundbar and dedicated audio processor, looks decidedly utilitarian yet it sounds like a mini multiplex.
Two HDMI inputs mean you can hook up both games console/disc player plus a set top box, and system is Bluetooth compatible too.
Great sound, Great picture!
The picture quality is very good, crisp, clear, smooth motion. Sound is very good as well can hear all pitches, highs, mids, and lows. Smarthub is not so great few apps work. The youtube app, only a small percentage of the videos will actually play but when you do eventually find the very few videos that will play it is pretty nice and fair enough video quality.
A solid offering
If we had to describe the Klipsch HD Theater 600 is a few words, we'd call it a solid offering. While the 33Hz low end rating seems a bit optimistic to us, the price tag certainly is right. At $600 for a full 5.1 system, the Klipsch HD Theater 600 is sure to introduce a lot of people to the Klipsch brand and, more importantly, the Klipsch sound. And once they get a taste for it, they'll be more likely to stick with it.
