Sony 2.1ch Soundbar with Bluetooth | HT-CT290 is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 63.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from GOOD SOUND Bought in conjunction with a 4K HDR Sony XE90 TV. The soundbar fits perfectly below the TV to allow for the use of the infra red handset. Easy to set up and plug in with HDMI (ARC) and bluetooth with the sub woofer which sits on the floor next to TV unit. Synchronisation with TV was faultless. Quality of sound is excellent especially with movies even when used without the sub woofer switched on. Plays music from a plug in USB to the rear with an on screen menu although does not include shuffling of songs.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic Product - Buy It The sound quality, dynamic range and volume of this Sound Bar is unbelievable! It made me get rid of my beloved Hi-Fi System because the Sound Bar sounds better. I bought it with a Sony Bravia 4K HDR TV. Downloading Spotify was simple and the sound makes the hairs on my neck stand up! I can easily Bluetooth into it from my phone and the sound is still incredible. It's the best rendition of MP3 files I have ever heard. Buy it and you won't be disappointed. FANTASTIC!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Some issues with syncing. Am very happy with the sound, and love the fact the Sub is wireless that requires no set up. However, I do have two problem with the sound bar. 1. I have a syncing issues with the sound from the Sky box. I can not find anyway on the sound bar to adjust this, no problem with the other sources, and no problem when using the TV speakers. It only occurs when using the HDMI cable rather than the optical. I prefer to use optical however the I loose the auto power / arc feature, bit of a design floor. 2. Then arc auto power on / off feature seems to loose it's memory evrytime I turn the system off by the mains. I have everything on and if I turn the TV to standby the sound bars goes off as one would hope. When I turn the TV on again the sound bar follows, great. However then at night when I turn everything off by the mains, the following morning I turn the power on and the TV on and no sound bar! It would now need to be manual powered.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from So frustrating! Although the sound is fairly good, this sound bar’s height is a good half inch above the bottom of the new Sony tv it came with. This means that when it is in front of the TV on a table top set up, it prevents the TV remote connecting with the TV - an amateur design fault in my opinion. We’ve had to raise the TV so unless you are in the minority and are wall mounting this set up, expect much frustration and fiddling!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good sound for the price. I have had this sound bar for a few weeks now. It was very easy to set up and the Bluetooth sub woofer connected without problem. I think the general sound quality is good although I was disappointed with the poor strength of bass sound even when purposely playing a heavy bass sound track. I have had subwoofers before and this is probably the weakest output of them. Otherwise a good quality product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great budget soundbar Great price. Easy to set up, interacts with my Sony TV & blu-ray flawlessly. Also easy connection with my Sony z & other non Sony products I own. Fantastic budget soundbar, go buy one

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Sony sound bar, I bought the sound bar to go with a new tv I bought just after Christmas, overall the sound is great and it does exactly as it should. However the sound keeps on going out of sync and is very frustrating trying to watch the tv with mouths opening and sound coming slightly after. I bought the unit to replace an old surround sound system that had given years of great sound.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from An 'OK' Sound Bar that could have been better This is a good looking sound bar that sits discretely in front of the TV although sometimes it's positioning can obscure the line of sight for controlling the TV. I found it quite difficult to set up- suffering lag between the sound and vision which I could only resolve by using a bluetooth interface between the TV and sound Bar (as well as the sub-woofer). Unfortunately this meant a 5 second lag between the TV picture appearing and the bluetooth link being established (and sound appearing). I was a bit disappointed by the lack of adjustments available for the sound itself these being limited to a few very similar options all of which contained more treble than I'd prefer, also the maximum subwoofer volume was quite low.
