    Sony HTZ9F reviews

    HT-Z9F 400W 3.1-Channel Network Soundbar System is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 1.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good with something to desire I have been selecting a high end bar based on reviews (no showroom near by) and chose Sony (over Sonos, as the last two contenders on my list) because of the inclusion of the sub-woofer and the variety of input ports. I like the sound quality and the amount of power is more than enough for my room. TV now sounds significantly better and music sounds fine, but it has too much bass for my taste, and unfortunately I could not find a way to adjust the bass levels on the bar. Another issue was that music playback over Bluetooth would have frequent dropouts when the bar was on for a while. Restarting the bar resolves the issue. What bothered me most, was that reaching Sony support is impossible, no response over email and the chat function on their site does not work. I expected better support from Sony. Overall I am happy with the bar, but would be happier if they released a firmware update with and equalizer and a fix for bluetooth connectivity.
