Review Summary:

This is a sleek sound bar that has everything that you need to add powerful sound to your HD TV. The combination of the four speaker sound bar and wireless subwoofer makes for a system with some serious range and the processing effects provide true to life audio. At about £300, this is one of the more expensive 2-channel sound bars, but if you have the budget for it, the quality does warrant the price.

If you are looking to add some life to your home viewing experience, then the Sony HT-CT780 sound bar is an addition that you might want to consider. This 2.1-channel system delivers 330W of sound for audio that sounds fantastic. With a wireless subwoofer and tons of great features, this sound system is sure to impress.

The sound bar itself has four speakers in the enclosure that cover the highs and the mid-range and then you add in the 120W wireless subwoofer for the deep bass. The sound comes through with stunning clarity for an experience that makes you feel as though you are right in the middle of the action.

With the HT-CT780 sound bar, the consumer gets Dolby Digital TrueHD for studio quality sound and the best replication of what the director intended that you will find in a 2-channel system. It also comes with Sony’s S-Force Pro for a virtual surround sound effect and Clear Audio Plus for top quality sound reproduction.

For the set up and connectivity, this sound bar offers some of the best options. It comes with three HDMI inputs and one HDMI output. This allows you to connect all of your components to the sound bar and only have a single connection to the TV. Sony has also equipped this system with full 4K pass through, so you won’t lose any of the video quality as the source streams through the sound bar to the HD TV. As a second option, you could also connect all of the devices to the television and have a single audio connection running from the TV to the sound system. Beyond connecting to the TV and the components, all you have to do is set up the wireless subwoofer and connect the power supply.

This Sony sound bar also comes with Bluetooth for streaming music from your mobile devices. The user can connect their phone or tablet to the sound system to bring all of their favourite songs to this high-quality system. The Bluetooth has NFC capabilities for easy connecting. Just touch the device to the sound bar and you have an instant Bluetooth connection. If the device does not have NFC, then you can still learn the device into the system using standard Bluetooth pairing.

For usability once the system is set up, this sound bar is one of the best. All of the different functions can be easily controlled through the remote. You can switch from source to source, control the sound presets and make some adjustments to the equalizer. Along with that, you can make the system even easier to manage by downloading the Sony Song Pal app to your tablet or Smartphone.
