    Sony HT-CT290 reviews

    HT-CT290 300W 2.1-Channel Soundbar System is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 5.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from A solid upgrade to your TV's speakers Off the bat, this system was easy to install. I was able to get the TV sound and bluetooth from my phone up and running in under 5 minutes. Pairing with the subwoofer is simple. The sound is good, and clearly a step up from the TV speakers on my LG. On the other hand, the sound is a clear case of "you get what you pay for". It doesn't compare to larger, more expensive speakers; I'd say the midrange is where it's lacking the most. In terms of EQ and adjusting the sound, your options are limited; you can the Sub up or down, or select from 5 presets.� The biggest issue for me is the distortion that you can get from certain types of music or voices. I'm noticing that low female voices and acoustic music can cause the bar to distort. Attenuating the input doesn't seem to fix this problem for Bluetooth. Overall, I would recommend if you're just looking to upgrade your TV sound. This is not for audiophiles.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great purchase for price point This sound bar is impressive beyond its looks; a smaller foot print sound bar hides its 300 W of total power. The subwoofer hits perfectly especially at medium or higher volumes (at lower volumes I feel the bass drop dramatically) and meshes well with the rest of the sound bar's output. my only complaint is the subwoofer needing its own AC cord. You need it obviously for full 300 W output but it would have been nice to have the sound bar provide power to subwoofer.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Pretty Great Soundbar The bluetooth�feature is GREAT and sound can go really loud. TV no longer sounds plain and flat.� Took a star off because the bass is OK, I was expecting more but got this for the sound bar. It can be noticeable in some instances, perhaps I haven't really tested it completely but its there. On the plus side, the bass is paired wirelessly to the bar.� I would recommend it because I love using bar for my bluetooth�music from my phone.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Sound, Easy installation I really love this. Shows me how long I've been living with mediocre sound with just the TV sound. If you do not have a sound bar, get one. If you get one, this one is a start.
