Sony HT-CT380 Soundbar Speaker : Top quality item great sound quality for the price well packaged

I have normally favored sony stuff imagining it was just that bit improved. It is really not quite loud taking into consideration its so known as ability. I’ve always liked sony things considering it was just that bit improved. I would say this bar is just ordinary. The app that sony endorse for it is under par alsocome on sony, get your finger out .

Makes a entire world of distinction to sound quality but restricted in quantity.

This sony seem bar has exceeded my expectations and has drastically improved my dwelling tv set viewing practical experience. I have only experienced a flat screen screen television for a lot less than a 12 months, obtaining been a single of the past british isles viewers still seeing on a boxy crt. (also a sony and lasted a very long time). It arrived in a clunky l shaped box and it looked significantly larger than i experienced bargained for. This is mainly because the sub woofer is on the chunky aspect and the soundbar is 90cm very long. So you have to have area to in good shape it into your area. My living house is crowded with bookshelves so it truly is been a squeeze. The package includes wall mounting brackets for the soundbar a distant with batteries provided, an optical cable, toes for the subwoofer and a comprehensive 43 web site working manual all of which is in english in addition a incredibly very clear and specific established up chart with images, diagrams and words and phrases which tends to make the established up truly quick. Outstanding for the reason that i am not really up to velocity on all the newest tech gear.

Comments from buyers

“Very Good Sound Quality, Nice bit of kit., A very effective improvement on thin flat screen sound., Good sound quality, Top quality item great sound quality for the price well packaged, Some things you really should consider before buying any soundbar”

The device does seem to be to do the job really effectively and go well with the lay out of our place.

I was so fed up with the bad tinny sound from our samsung lcd tv in our kitchen area so i acquired this, absence of area prevented me obtaining a proper encompass program, like the 7 mission speakers, pioneer amp and kuro 60′ plasma i have in the lounge (my spouse calls it stonehenge). This technique is a extensive advancement on the television speakers but i am even now a little bit disappointed, its fantastic for standard tv observing but not so great for music, it does not go really loud without distorting and the base is not really punchy even at maximum distorted volume it is not incredibly loud. Also a big flaw is the hdmi switching – 1 of the principal causes i selected thie model for 3 hdmi inputs – does not work with sky on input 1 and apple tv on enter 2 , sky operates but i are unable to get it to swap to apple television set like i can on other programs i have, very aggravating.

    • A real enhancement to tv viewing and music playing. I had always been sceptical about the value of soundbars but after taking the plunge with this sony kit i am a complete convert. Comparing the playback of some recorded tv drama with and without the soundbar swows how it adds a whole extra layer of experience with richer background and clearer foreground effects. There are various options to configure the sound to your personal preference and for people of a certain age the ability to accentuate dialogue is very welcome. It goes without saying that the increase in sound quality from music devices e. Ipad linked via bluetooth is immense. The soundbar is easy to connect (although i was glad i had a spare hdmi cable as one was not included) and the subwoofer connection and bluetooth links were faultless.

    Having already thrown out a cheap one for sounding no better than the tv. I’ve listened to dozens of soundbars, having already thrown out a cheap one for sounding no better than the tv. At last i have found one that gives me everything i want. The sound can be adjusted in so many ways that it would be impossible not to be able to set it up exactly to your preference. Worth every penny and highly recommended.
    • A profeesional musician so mu ear couldn’t tell how good it was. I am not a profeesional musician so mu ear couldn’t tell how good it was. It feels good but it’s too long.
  4. Comes alive when watching movies. I have to be honest, when i fist connected this soundbar, i was slightly underwhelmed. Televison channels sounded okay, but nothing special. However after connecting my skybox and blu ray player to the soundbar through an hdmi and then using an hdmi from the soundbar to the tv, i discovered that this is a fantastic sounding product, especially when watching a blu ray film. What makes the sony soundbar sound so good is the balance in sound. Speech is really clear and action scenes come alive with the help of the wireless sub which gives a rich powerful bass, without drowning out dialogue. Music through bluetooth also sounds good, but personally i think the ct380 is best used for watching films especially blu ray as the soundbar supports hd dts sound.

    Great sound system although the voices can sound ‘tinny’ sometimes. Suggest playing around with the settings.

    This product is incredibly easy to set up. As others have mentioned, if your tv has an arc hdmi input, then connect tv to soundbar (using the arc output on soundbar and arc input on tv) and then put all the other inputs (sky/xbox/playstation/virgin/whatever it may be) into the 3 hdmi slots on the soundbar. This means you have to change which input you desire using the small remote, but its easy enough. The subwoofer connected instantly too. I just plugged both in and the sub connected so i was pleased with that. I’ll be honest, i was a little underwhelmed when i first started using it (i put the formula 1 on to really test it) and i felt a little disappointed. However, turn the soundbar off so the audio comes through the tv and it will be then you truly realise just how good this soundbar is and how poor the speakers are on the newer tvs. So why 4 stars?because i’m pedantic and i wall mounted mine under the mounted tv.
    • Great depth and range of sounds previously undetectable and now. Watching fargo the other evening, now picking up the big engine grumble of those american motors. Great depth and range of sounds previously undetectable and now for all to hear. The sound bar is quite a bit bigger than i thought, but then if you want hifi type sound then thats what you needgreat.

    How to configure your sky remote for the ht-ct380. I was looking for a one box solution to improve the sound from my flat screen tv, also enable music playback from apple devices. The ht-ct380 is easy to set up, neat, and simple to configure with the small remote. Sound quality is perfectly acceptable but not perfect. It certainly beats the internal speakers. If you want to control the sound bar volume through your sky remote, here’s how:turn everything onon sky remote press tv buttonpress and hold select + 0 until red light blinks twiceenter code 2200press left arrow – sound should turn offpress tv button againhold and press select + 1 until red light blinks twicepress sky button, and the volume keys will operate the sound barhope this helps.
    • Be sure you connect sound bar in correctly. . This sound bar is very good but be aware, if your attaching a ps4 and tv you must plug hdmi from ps4 to sound bar and then hdmi from sound bar to tv otherwise you will not get full effect. Only proceed like this if your tv has a arc hdmi connection, otherwise you will not experience the true sound effects. Only realised this after plugging the connections in wrong and wondering why the sub woofer wasn’t working correctly.
