Sony HT-CT790 overview

  • 1Description

Enhance your TV's audio with the Sony HT-CT790 330W 2.1-Channel Soundbar System. Along with the included wireless subwoofer, its ability to decode Dolby Digital and DTS is designed to enhance the quality of your sound compared to your TV speakers alone. The S-Force PRO Front Surround feature emulates theater-style surround sound without adding side or rear speakers.

The HT-CT790 has Bluetooth with NFC for pairing with your smart device and wirelessly streaming your audio content. The soundbar's wired connections include an optical input, an 1/8" input, and an HDMI output. The USB port will allow you to connect your USB drives for playback of your stored audio files. It includes a wall-mount bracket for the soundbar and a remote control.

The soundbar's three HDMI inputs and output support 4K pass-through so you won't lose any quality by connecting through it. The output is also ARC-compatible, so you can hear TV-based audio from built-in apps like Netflix and YouTube.

2.1-Channel System for Enhanced Stereo Sound
The two drivers have been engineered to deliver a balanced audio response across all frequencies while the wireless subwoofer adds more body to your bass, so every explosion and action sequence hits harder.
330W Total Output
Bring all your music and movies to life in the volume and clarity they deserve with a 330W power output.
Wireless Audio
Wirelessly connect to your home network and Internet music streaming with built-in Wi-Fi, or use Bluetooth to stream audio from your smartphone or tablet.
Made to Match Your Space
The slim 2.5" profile of the HT-CT790 means it won't get in the way of what you're watching. Wall-mounting is easy, too, and the sleek black design integrates seamlessly with the rest of your home theater setup.
3x HDMI Inputs, 1x HDMI ARC Output
HDMI ARC (Audio Return Channel) lets you connect to your TV with a single cable for easier control with fewer cables, while three HDMI inputs give you the freedom to connect to more devices.
USB Port
Enjoy a stable connection for smartphones, tablets, and USB drives, so you can charge your device or play MP3 files.
Bring movies and music to life in dynamic surround sound thanks to the DTS-HD format.
Dolby TrueHD
Enjoy clear, high-fidelity sound with the Dolby TrueHD lossless compression format.
Wireless Subwoofer for Flexible Setup
Position the wireless subwoofer anywhere in the room to enjoy bass with low-end detail thanks to a bass-reflex port.
Spotify Connect
Play Spotify through your audio device using the Spotify app as a remote.
S-Master Digital Amplifier for Pure Sound
Using a digital signal path, the S-Master amplifier reproduces digital audio signals without the multiple analog stages required by conventional amplifiers for more power and less distortion caused by heat build-up.
S-Force PRO Front Surround
S-Force PRO Front Surround mimics the way the brain correlates sound sources to create proper volume, time lag, and sound wave spectrum using only left and right speaker channels. By naturally emulating three-dimensional sound fields, you'll be able to enjoy enhanced audio across a wider listening area.
ClearAudio+ Enriches Your Music
ClearAudio+ automatically adjusts sound settings for an enriching listening experience. By bringing together expertise in digital signal processing technologies, ClearAudio+ is designed to optimize audio formats to deliver a consistently clear, high-quality sound, whatever music you're into.
Connect to Your Home Network with DLNA
The Digital Living Network Alliance (DLNA) standard makes it easier to stream and transfer your favorite music, films, and pictures between your DLNA-supported devices including TVs, computers, portable servers, and gaming consoles.
One-Touch Listening to Play Music Instantly
NFC (Near Field Communication) technology removes the need for wired connections and complex setup sequences. Simply touch your NFC-enabled smartphone or other device to the on-body N-mark and start your music.
DSEE Restores Detail to Your Digital Music
When an original music source is compressed, it loses the high-frequency elements that add detail and richness to your favorite tracks; the Digital Sound Enhancement Engine (DSEE) is designed to faithfully restore these to produce high-quality sound that's closer to the original recording.
Multi-Room Listening with the SongPal App
Use the SongPal app to group selected Sony sound bars and speakers together, then stream music from a computer or your home network in multiple rooms throughout your home. The app can also be used to customize sound settings to ensure great, balanced audio.
Compatible with HDCP 2.2 Copy Protection
Designed primarily for Ultra HD 4K devices, HDCP 2.2 employs advanced encryption techniques to create a secure connection between source and display, preventing the unlicensed copying of copyrighted content.
Google Cast for Simplified Streaming
The HT-CT790 has Google Cast built in, so you can cast your favorite music apps from your personal device to your speakers. Simply tap the cast button in a music app on your Android phone or tablet, iPhone, iPad, Mac, Windows laptop, or Chromebook, and select a speaker or group of speakers to get started.
LDAC High-Bandwidth Bluetooth Streaming
LDAC transmits approximately three times more data (at the maximum transfer rate of 990 kbps) than conventional Bluetooth audio, for an augmented wireless listening experience.
High Dynamic Range Pass-Through
By supporting High Dynamic Range (HDR) pass-through, you can enjoy the enhanced image contrast and brightness it brings.
4K Pass-Through for 4K Content
The 4K pass-through feature allows 4K data to "pass through" and be displayed on a 4K TV or projector without compromising image quality.
Bluetooth Streaming for Personal Listening
Stream audio directly from the soundbar to your headphones via Bluetooth for convenient wireless listening. Compatible with LDAC and AAC codecs, the HT-CT790 is designed for personal viewing, so you can put your headphones on to enjoy a movie on the big screen without disturbing anyone.

    Sony HT-CT790 reviews

    HT-CT790 330W 2.1-Channel Soundbar System is rated 3.8 out of 5 by 5.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from great sound very easy to connect the sound bar to our tv. the volume is very adequate, sharp and crisp audio, definitely worth the purchase price. The delivery of our product was received as promised, this our second major purchase here. We would not hesitate to refer anyone to deal with this store as we are completely satisfied.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Save yourself a headache and get a surrond system instead. Purchased with Sony smart tv and remotes are not compatible so you need 2 remotes to control the tv and sound bar. If you hook inputs through the sound bar the interface is junk and you have to use both remotes every time. I had to hook all inputs to tv and then hdmi arc to the sound bar that way i can use 1 remote for the volume control. Other than the little bit of bass it performs the same as the tv speakers. Get a surround sound system instead.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great soundbar with 3 HDMI inputs and more After going through 3 soundbars in less than 3 weeks of a different brand, I purchased this one. I couldn't have made a better choice. It has clean and crisp highs while balancing the sound well. Three HDMI inputs, optional rear speakers, and it even connects to the internet to stream music. The best part, it works great. It also comes with the wall mount.
    Date published: 2017-05-27
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Dynamic sound for dynamic pictures Very good high and midrange, decent bass. But should be set at maximum for cinematic effects. Very good fit and finish and easy to set up. Very good sound effect when TV sets to sports mode.
