by Luvtoride Great sound, features and so easy to set up
Got this as a gift for my new Ultra HD TV set up. My family wanted to get me a good sound bar but didn't want to spend a fortune. The Sony sound bar and wireless sub woofer unit fit so great with my TV they are almost invisible. They were so easy to set up and connect and were working in minutes. The sound and deep bass from the sub is phenomenal. Still have to set up the remote on my Harmony universal remote, but I'm sure that will be easy to do. Very Happy with my gift and the great price for a quality sound system!

Rated 5 out of 5 by MagusLCX Great Quality Good Price
After doing a little research and some comparison of reviews from competing products I purchased this soundbar. Sony did a great job with both the design and the quality of this unit. It has a low profile so it is lower than the bottom of most TVs that are on a stand. It can be mounted on a wall as well. The Wireless Sub syncs to the unit easily. Works great out of the box and is very easy to set up. Depending on your specific sound needs it may need a little adjustment but doing so is also very easy. The sound is excellent, I have it connected via Digital Optical cable. It is only 300w unit so don't expect super loud sounds but you get great sound and it definitely equalizes the audio of commercials for over the air broadcasts. The sounds is nice and clear whether you are watching a blu-ray or watching cable tv. I have no complaints and have been extremely happy with this product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by JDmp1 Heavy duty bass
- Outstanding Sony quality and sharp looks
- Easy set up
- Plenty of subwoofer power
- Useful sound modes
- Narrowish bar = little L / R channel separation
- Cannot control volume from the cable company's remote, even though their remote will control the volume on a Sony TV; it means forever juggling a second remote just to change volume level.

Rated 4 out of 5 by AudioEnthusiast Great Sound Bar for the Money
I did not want to get into running of wires for a full surround sound system so I decide to look at sound bars. I spent some time reviewing what was available, costs, etc, and then whet and had a number of systems demonstrated. I found the HTCT370 provided the best performance for the money that I could find. There were better systems out there but they were twice the price. I find that in order to get great base out of the sub woofer that you have to really increase the volume of the unit. I assume this is an efficiency matter. I found that most units in this price range have the same problem. So if you are looking for a great sound bar that will not break the bank this is the one.

Rated 5 out of 5 by MadMartigan Very Awesome Full Featured Sound Bar
I needed a sound bar with a low profile to accommodate the clearance for the height of my TV. I was pleasantly surprised how slim and beautiful this sound bar was. After set up I was once again surprised by how complete the audio experience was. The wireless sub woofer is a slim design and fit perfectly between my couch and wall. My wife normally hates my tech purchases but as soon as she learned that she could play music through the sound bar by simply tapping her phone to the bar, she was hooked. I am very happy and highly recommend.

Rated 4 out of 5 by SwooTech Problem Solver
I love Sony XBR TVs except they don't stream a 5.1 signal through the TOSLINK when the internal speaker are on. For casual television viewing I like to use the internal speakers. When I'm viewing a 5.1 Amazon or Netflix video, I like to use my THX AVR. Problem: I would have to manually switch to "audio system" to get the 5.1 bit stream. If I forget to switch back, the next casual user will not be able to get sound.
The HT-C370 solves the problem because the TV needs to be on "audio system" mode for the HT-C370 to work. Effectively, the HT-C370 is now my "TV Speakers" for casual viewing and the TOSLINK is now streaming the 5.1 signal. I simply mute the sound bar or lower its volume when the AVR is on line.
The Casual viewing experience is now enhanced with the wireless subwoofer which the internal speakers didn't provide. Also, you gain two extra HDMI ports on the sound bar that routes to the TV.
The only thing that kept from getting five stars is the status light won't turn off when it's on mute. It keeps flashing "Muting" and is distracting. The work around is simply to turn the sound bar down to minimum.

Rated 5 out of 5 by LadyMusic62 Love My Sony Soundbar
I love my HT-CT370 Soundbar! The woofer gives full deep sound. I feel like I'm in a theatre watching a movie. In the store I compared it to the Bose for 4 times the price. Yes, the sound on the Bose was louder and deeper, but I would never listen to music or a movie at that high volume level in my house. When I'm watching TV and movies, I still want to converse with the people I am with, so this Sony soundbar is perfect!! All the rich sound and volume I could ever want, and still enjoy my family and friends. I also love the companion SongPal phone/iPod app and the Bluetooth capability, I can listen to all my favorite music at full volume and hear it throughout the house, when I'm alone.
