Great sound base, fantastic build quality and very easy set up (married up to a Samsung TV no issues at all ). High Definition Audio sounds incredible when playing FLAC/lossless files etc. Good bass tested with a room shaking rendition of blue ray 'Fury' (bass fully adjustable and independent of main volume control ). Would definitely recommend to anyone who doesn't want the mess or inconvenience of a full surround set up or anyone restricted by space or room shape etc.

Pros: Ease to use, Good build quality, Looks good Cons: None


Wow - what a sound comes out of this little base. The sound is so much clearer. Movies are out of this world, it really is like being in a cinema. Very, very simple to set up, although I've got a SONY TV which helps. Looks fantastic. So worth the extra money more than a soundbar. Superb quality as you would expect from SONY.

Pros: Ease to use, Good build quality, Looks good, Value for money Cons: None

Looks good sounds rubbish

Is really poor quality on normal TV listening, to the point where I only turn it on for xbox and dvds and just use the TV speakers, otherwise it constantly needs adjustments. Crackles, can't cope with accents particularly Scottish, have tried a million different settings but it's no where near as good as my old lg unit which I unfortunately sold, despite that being half the price 3 years ago. Running with a 42 inch smart Sony bravia, only a couple of years old, wish I had not bothered 'upgrading' Same on hdmi and optical cables, very dissatisfied. It looks nice, it syncs up well with the tv remote but I can't think of another nice word to say about it.

Cons: Expensive, Poor quality

SOny XT3

fantastic bit of kit, great improvement on the sound from the TV

Pros: Ease to use, Good build quality, Looks good, Quiet, Value for money Cons: None

Superb system

So easy to set up. No wires all over the room but still such good sound. Bass is much better than my old sound bar.

Pros: Ease to use, Good build quality, Looks good, Value for money Cons: None
