Smart Guidance in Buying Sony HT-XT1 2

Not as impressed as i imagined i would be after. Not as impressed as i imagined i would be soon after examining the advertising and marketing blurb. Sound is from entrance only despite what sony assert and using with dolby on sky the spoken term id pretty much inaudible in spite of applying the max. I obtained rid of my sony theatre sound method with dvd and radio to preserve place but now wished that i experienced held it as viewing blu-rays now is absolutely nothing special as the sound does not ‘travel’ to other parts of the home but can only be read from instantly in front.

Wow this sony sound board is a bid advancement on tv speakers. I was blown absent get how substantially greater blu rays, ps3 & ps4 game titles sound. I just finished viewing jail split period 1-4 on blu ray in dts high definition ma & the sound is simply just stunning, at a one hundred seventy watts this is ideal for me. Its nice to have the speakers all created into just one unit, so no annoying cables everywhere you go. It appears to be like excellent & nicely created, a differ great design. I question what the 350 watt design would sound like.

Sony HT-XT1 2.1 Channel TV Base Speaker with Built-in Subwoofer and All-in-One Sound Box Design (170 W, S-Force PRO, Bluetooth and NFC)

  • Experience the action of your favourite movies in room filling audio with the help of 2.1 channel and 170 W total audio output
  • All-in-one sound box design provides an emmersive cinematic sound experience
  • Experience virtual 3D cinematic sound with S-force Pro front surround technology
  • Stream music instantly with bluetooth and NFC
  • Effortlessly connect the sound base with TV, blu-ray player or playstation via three HDMI inputs and one output for an easy setup

And fantastic clarity for dialogue and adequate base. The sound good quality is apparent, with richer audio, and very good clarity for dialogue and satisfactory base. The variety of hdmi sockets, furthermore nfc etc, tends to make it a fantastic addition, even though the compact measurement and all in a person nature, for my flat in which far more speakers is not possible, make it great for improving the cinema experience though not demanding loads of extras dotted about the home.

The features are perfectly documented in other places. It does every thing i have to have – basically connect the ps3 and tv through hdmi. When i swap the tv on it fires up and vice-versa. Almost everything works seamlessly. There are lots of sound configurations in addition to remaining able to good tune the sub-woofer volume, boosting the clarifty of voices and even toning factors down with night time method. I was nervous i could possibly struggle with placing this up or having sound and picture to synch but almost everything is handled mechanically. When i have site visitors they are going to immediately connect their telephone and pay attention to some tunes to check it out – every person has been impressed with what they’ve listened to. It is really even girlfriend friendly as it looks incredibly neat and tidy in the living room.

Acquired this to replace an previous 5. 1 program that wouldn’t link to any of my more recent package. It took about an hour all in to set the base up with our dvd/hd recorder, bravia telly and ps4 (probably more time than it ought to have been mainly because i was impatient and did it late at night). Every thing performs by means of it beautifully, and it appears great. A good deal great adequate to act as a lounge sound method for new music way too. It is so much more simple than a wired surround sound technique, and suggests no wires or dusty subwoofer wedged by our tv stand.

Sony HT-XT1 2.1 Channel TV Base Speaker with Built-in Subwoofer and All-in-One Sound Box Design (170 W, S-Force PRO, Bluetooth and NFC) : Nice unit, built for purpose. Typical sony being one of my favourite companies where high quality meets fair prices. This sound base is basically for people who don’t want subwoofers or home cinemas. The sound is lovely with more than enough weight and depth to background music and adds weight to vocals. The remote is good with everything needed and it isn’t one if those cheap credit card types either. It has a range of inputs and bluetooth for quick pairing through nfc which doubles it as a stereo system. If you you power then go elsewhere but don’t underestimate the output of this system. For movies and gaming the sound is fantastic but its not super acoustic for music and more bass heavy tunes are slightly more muddy not having a separate sub. However this is, i think, a perfect ten considering is built for purpose.

    Excellent clarity of speech. . I was unhappy with the clarity of speech output from my sony bravia television due to the small rearward facing speakers. I wanted something to enhance the sound but not just by making it louder. I don’t game on my tv nor do i watch many films but the sony has vastly improved my overall listening experience not only by enhancing the clarity of speech but also my viewing and listening experience as a whole through it’s additional modes ( sports, movies, music etc: ) as it is a single, neat and unobtrusive box upon which the tv sits it has fitted almost seamlessly into my set up. There are no trailing wires and additional speaker boxes to incur the wrath of my wife. It was also very easy to install and set up. So for my need to enhance the sound output of my tv it fulfils my requirements to perfection. If you want to go for a full blown ” cinematic sound experience” get something else.

    Great sound quality, at a good price. Don’t judge until the system has had chance to sync with tv fully. The complete sync happens within first a few days of use and once this happens the sound quality is excellent.

    Easy to set up – sound is good. . I bought this to replace a wired 5. 1 lg surround dvd player as some of my ‘hidden’ cables had worn and broke. I didn’t want to have to re-wire all the speakers around the room. First impression was this thing is big, heavy and sturdy. I don’t know what my 42″ tv weighs but i could tell the sound bar would be able to cope with it on top. The ht-xt1 is well built and looks gorgeous with its shiny glass top. The remote is also very nice and slides open to reveal some extra buttons. The ‘night mode’ button is an excellent idea, as i am usually the first to go to bed and i hate hearing the bass tones rumbling through the floor. With my old set-up i would kindly ask my wife to turn the bass down or unplug sub-woofer.

      Good quality, sounds a big difference than going from the normal tv speakers.
      • Emlyn Owen
        Excellent system with great bass. Has enhanced the viewing experience hugely. Streaming music from your mobile is easy and the sound quality brilliant. At under £200 it’s a bit of a bargain.

      After reading the positive reviews i took the plunge and bought this soundboard from a local high street retailer than amazon. It sounds great, but one think the description doesn’t mention or the reviews is that it doesn’t support hdcp. My sony lcd is a few years old and doesn’t support arc (used to pass audio from the tv to the soundboard), so i plug everything into the soundboard and a single hdmi connection to the telly. The problems start when i try playing netflix on my apple tv. I get an error saying my setup doesn’t support hdcp. Turns out the higher end soundboard doesn’t support hdcp, but this mid range one doesn’t. Looks like i’ll have to buy a new tv that supports arc and plug all my devices directly into the tv.
