Sony HT-XT1 2 : Extremely good product

Soundbar Speakers
1

The features are well documented elsewhere. It does everything i need – simply connect the ps3 and tv via hdmi. When i switch the tv on it fires up and vice-versa. Everything works seamlessly. There are many sound settings in addition to being able to fine tune the sub-woofer volume, enhancing the clarifty of voices and even toning things down with night mode. I was worried i might struggle with setting this up or getting sound and picture to synch but everything is handled automatically. When i have visitors they’ll quickly connect their phone and listen to some music to test it out – everyone has been impressed with what they’ve heard. It’s even girlfriend friendly as it looks very neat and tidy in the living room.

For the money nothing can touch it. Researched quite a few others, bose, sonos, denon and this came out on top. I heard the bose and was less than impressed. Compared to their sound bar (granted a vast more cash) it sounded flat, this with a bit of tweaking is impressive. Especially for the huge discount i managed to get. Came from holland, ordered on the 21st and it arrived on christmas eveit replaced a 10+ year old sony dav 5. 1 and i’m delightedlooks cool and already have family members trying to get one for themselves. Only issue is the remote is a bit naf.

Turn up the sub woofer at your own peril. Forget those tinny flat screen speakers this base speaker will make your tummy wobble. Clear sound and deep deep base, remember when kate bush sang about a sound that would kill, well don’t turn it up too loud with a cat on your lap. I didn’t know my very fat cat could jump that high. Here are the specifications for the Sony HT-XT1 2:

  • Enter your model number
    to make sure this fits.
  • 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

This system is fantastic and provides amazing sound, deep bass, pure treble. One minor point is that there is very slight rattling at high volume on some bassy soundtracks. . But then again my bose sounddock does the same. Easy to use, simple uncluttered remote control. Completely transformed movie viewing for the better.

1 channel tv base speaker with built-in subwoofer and all-in-one sound box design (170 w, s-force pro, bluetooth and nfc)i have a sony kdl-32w705c tv , i also have poor hearing & tinnitus in one ear. I was fed up with the poor sound produced by the tv, which i must say is perfect in every other way, but after connecting this fantastic sound base everything changed. Apart from the richer sound, the biggest improvement for me is that i can now hear the dialogue clearly. I also have a fire tv box & ps4 connected to the tv via an arc cable, which was simple & quick to set up. This piece of kit is sony quality i have come to expect after many years using their products. I unreservedly recommend this sound base, especially to anyone with impaired hearing.

Reviews from purchasers :

  • Easy to set up – sound is good.
  • Great booming sound and functionality
  • Turn up the sub woofer at your own peril!

Forget the cheaper options, save up and get this one. . I plugged it in and connected it to my samsung h6400 with a good quality hdmi cable via arc. Everything is working automatically; volume control, switching sources, turns on and off. The only other thing i had to do was change the audio format under the tv sound settings from pcm to dts. Make sure you do this because the sound gets even better. Sound wise, it’s a massive improvement over the tv speakers. Hearing the difference makes me wonder how i put up with it for so long. There’s definitely no going back. It’s loud and has impressive bass considering there’s no external sub. It’s not ground shaking bass but it’s enough to annoy the neighbours when set to 10+. Do not get the cheaper xt100 version. I was debating between the two for days and looked at countless reviews about them both. I don’t regret choosing the xt1.

Sony ht-xt1 2. 1 channel tv base speaker. The sony ht-xt1 is an amazing sound base. It fits into our oak tv unit superbly and looks very classy. But most importantly it sounds absolutely amazing. Voices are crisp and clear and music has a great bass range. Love this piece of kit and have to say it beats any sound bar i have heard.

After getting rid of a prized dolby digital yamaha 5 speaker system due to the amount of wires involved i decided to go for this speaker late 2016. Firstly ,the finish on this looks good with its shiny glass top affect,it has various different sound modes which do make a difference,for example,i prefer movie mode due to its surround affect,touching on the surround aspect,some programmes in dolby do make good use of it,but bare in mind it will never come close to a 5 speaker system,naturally. Night mode is very handy too when you need to decrease the bass for those sleeping. Secondly this has a 170w output,and for the price its a good deal,we have a decent sized flat and i dare not go above volume 12 out of 50. The subwoofer can be very good and at other times not so,it depends on the source of the programme. Some people don’t like the 80 style remote,it is a bit clunky and basic but i very much like it,just takes a bit getting used to. I had problems originally with the lip sync being half a second out of tune,this was pretty much fixed when i turned off auto lip sync. Overall,i recommend this product,if you have a big home then i will advise to pay the extra and go for next version up which has a better sub and louder speaker,personally i very glad i didn’t as this does exactly what i wanted :)tips-to check if the programme is outputting in dolby or not press the display button a few times and it will show on display. Increase the sub to its highest setting to get the best out of it.

Great booming sound and functionality. I purchased this sound bar for my parents flat screen. Originally the tv was to sit on top of this but the tv’s stand was just too big. This now sits on the tv stand on its own and it looks really stylish. The sound produced by this bar is very satisfying and has great bass. We have watched several movies with this running and it makes up for the lack of surround sound with ease. The bar also has a wide selection of functions including nfc/bluetooth, arc and optical.

The sound quality is astonishing. With all the options to adjust it everyone should be able to get it sounding just as they want. I have my pc hooked up to this and as i have dual screens i can see there is no noticeable lag on the picture.

The enhanced sound is great, even the wife went (wow) i set it. Just drove over 60 miles to pick this up. Worth every penny spent in fuel. The enhanced sound is great, even the wife went (wow) i set it up in under 2 mins with optical cable. All systems sounded so much clearer. I then set it up with the hdmi through arc & i think that sounds even better, but, that’s only my opinion. If you have the arc facility on the tv then set it up. Its a bit more complex than optical but, you can easily find the setup instructions online. Trust me, it is money well spent. No, its not surround sound like 5.

The way to go if you have sony stuff. This is a great bit of kit for sony users. It works seamlessly with my sony bluray player, ps4 and sony tv. The main sony tv remote allows for control of volume. You do need the base speaker remote for some functions like changing the sound settings. What you get is a much improved viewing experience with decent quality sound rather than the small embedded speakers. A nice touch is you can sync your phone up with bluetooth and have again a decent playback of music. This is nowhere near as good as a full blown surround sound system or a hifi separate but of all the soundbars i have seen and played around with this one certainly comes out top. So simply put if you want to improve things for your tv especially if have have a sony one then this is a great buy.

A good looking alternative to the classic sound bar + subwoofer, and it also elevates the tv a bit which is a plus for me (tv table is not so tall). It comes with a small remote, but we never use it as it adjusts the volume and turns on/off with the tv. The bluetooth syncs well with both androids and iphones. It doesnt give surround sound of course, but it is a great improvement over tv speakers. I have read some people here have issues with sound/picture sync and cut outs, and my advice is to change to a better quality hdmi cable. I was moving some stuff around and incidentally changed the cable to a thin and cheap china cable (that was ok for a dvd player), and before long i had this problem too. When i switched the cables back again, everything went back to normal.
