2.1 Channel System Brings Out The Best In Your Movies

Feel the full force of every movie soundtrack with this 2.1 channel sound bar. The two drivers have been carefully engineered to deliver a balanced audio response across all frequencies, while a wireless subwoofer adds more body to your bass so every explosion and action sequence hits harder than ever before.

Virtual Surround Sound For A Cinematic Experience

A compact speaker bar coupled with a subwoofer creates room filling virtual surround sound that makes watching movies, TV shows, and sport a whole new experience. Virtual surround sound mimics the way the brain correlates sound sources to create a realistic three dimensional sound field using only left and right speaker channels.

S Master Digital Amplifier True Sonic Purity

Enjoy the best of digital audio with the S Master digital amplifier. Using a simplified, full digital signal path, the S Master amplifier reproduces digital audio signals without the multiple analogue stages required by conventional amplifiers. The result is not just more power, but significantly less distortion caused by heat build up.

Clear Audio Plus Enriches Your Music

Unique to Sony, Clear Audio Plus automatically adjusts sound settings for an enriching listening experience. By bringing together expertise in digital signal processing technologies, Clear Audio Plus is able to optimise audio formats to deliver a consistently clear, high quality sound whatever music you are into.

Slim Design For Any Room

Designed to offer big sound for big screen televisions, this slim sound bar is just 5.1cm in height so it won’t obscure your view. Its minimalist styling is ready to suit your room with both table top and wall mounting options.

Wireless Subwoofer For Flexible Setup

Add some body to your low end sound. A 34.2cm 13.5 inch x 17cm, 6.7 inch wireless subwoofer provides deep bass and an enhanced audio space that fills your room with cinematic sound. Its wireless design means you can place it anywhere in a room and still enjoy booming movie soundtracks and sound effects.

Wireless Streaming With Bluetooth

Wirelessly stream your favourite tracks and audio apps with Bluetooth. Pair your smartphone or tablet with this Bluetooth enabled sound bar, and you can enjoy your music and even control the playlists and volume right from your device.

One Touch Listening To Play Instant Music

NFC Near Field Communication technology removes the need for wired connections and complex set up sequences. Simply touch your NFC enabled smartphone or other device to the on body N mark and start your music. No NFC No problem. You can also pair the devices manually in Bluetooth settings. See compatible devices.

Multiple Inputs For Easy Connection

With multiple connections, it’s easy to enjoy your home entertainment. Use an optical cable to link up to your TV, DVD or Blu ray Disc player, or connect your choice of music player via the analogue input for great sounding audio.

Sony 2.1ch Bluetooth Soundbar | HT-CT180 is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 53.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice features but could have been better. This soundbar will improve the quality of sound coming from your tv but it does have limitations depending on the size of your room. There is a slight lip sync issue, which is mentioned in the instructions but you don't find this out until after purchase and there is no way to correct this. When using the optical connection, with the supplied lead, I found that I needed the volume turned up full to get decent sound. Using an analogue lead to the headphone socket gave the best volume. I have my bar placed on a unit sitting underneath. It does block the tv sensor. It was very easy to set up and looks nice. Over all, it does as it is supposed to but could be so much better.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good Basic Sound System to support a TV This sound bar was bought to accompany a 4K 49" TV in a medium sized room. It is a basic system at a basic price, well suited to non specialist users. I found it relatively simple to set up despite rather sketchy instructions. The performance is adequate rather than sparkling, - the bass sub woofer is, frankly, rather disappointing. This is not the system for those wanting very high definition and volume, but it is a useful addition to standard TV sound in a small to a medium size room with the minimum of fuss, to improve watching TV and films considerably.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Fitting to soundbar bracket could be better The back of the soundbar has only two keyholes for presumably hanging on a wall. Ours is fitted to a soundbar bracket for fitting to a cantilever TV stand and there are no threaded inserts on the back of the soundbar for secure fitting to a bracket. Only the two keyholes and the correct size screws are not supplied by Sony. We are finding it difficult to get the precise size screws to fit the keyholes. Again, two threaded inserts should also be at the back of the soundbar for those who want to fit the soundbar below the TV on a cantilever stand. Otherwise the sound improvement over the standard TV speakers is better.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from just the right size I was looking at other Sony soundbars, but with my new 42'' Sony tv they would have blocked an inch or so of the bottom of the screen, as well as the remote signal, as the stand is quite low. The ht-ct 180 is only 2'' high and sits below the screen, and allows remote signals (albeit bounced off the ceiling) to function. As for sound quality, well pleased, good base for movies, and plays my walkman back great. At 180 watts it is too powerful to play on full volume in my 18ft x 13ft lounge, so would suit most homes. A really good upgrade from the tv speakers, which seem to get weaker these days as tvs get slimmer.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not what I would expect from Sony I bought this product as a gift for a relative, on the basis of my experience with an earlier version (SA-CT60). After installation I could not believe how poor it was in comparison (should have read some of the other reviews) to my own one. The sound is tinny and there is almost no base out of the so called sub-woofer. Unlike the CT60 there is no treble or base control so you only have the factory set sound levels. I have been a great fan of Sony products in the past but this experience will make me more likely to look at other manufacturers. I certainly would not recommend this sound bar to anyone.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Brilliant sound. We bought this to go with our new Sony 43" UHD t.v. The sound on the t.v. Itself is not great, but this sound bar is just fantastic. It has several adjustments for surround sound, voice and sub woofer. We have placed the wireless subwoofer behind our armchairs, so when watching films, we get the full surround sound experience! We love the fact that it has Bluetooth, so I can now listen to the music from my phone on decent speakers! We are extremely happy with our purchase, and would recommend.
Date published: 2016-02-02
Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good but issues Good sound but does things like switches off without me telling it to, when not in use. Would love to control sound, at least volume, from tv remote, rather than having another remote to lose. These are important things but no clear instructions to indicate if it is possible to the above.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good when it works I bought this around a year and a half ago connecting it to an older hd tv. The sound kept dropping out, so after changing the optical cable a couple of times, I put it down to the old tv and struggled on. Finally upgraded to an expensive Sony tv and the same thing. Because I only had a 1 year warranty they wouldn't help, other than to say I should get it fixed by a repairer that would cost more than the soundbar itself. So, good when it worked, but shame it was always faulty. That'll teach me. I think the amount you pay for Sony products, you should get the peace of mind of a longer watranty. If they're that good, you'll never need it! Should give it an HDMI connection and get rid of analog at least in my opinion.
