      Advantages

      • "The subwoofer produces prominent bass that is punchy and focused."

      Disadvantages

      • "The dialogue clarity and surround sound are not as impressive as other sound bars we reviewed."

      The additional subwoofer makes this sound bar ideal for both gaming and action movies.

      The Sony HTCT380 has a sleek design. It sits flat on your TV stand with the front face angled upward. This unique design was most likely conceived so that the sound bar doesn't block your television receiver for the remote, which is a common complaint for sound bar owners. This 2.1-channel sound bar also features an additional subwoofer to take care of all the low-end frequencies.

      Everything you need in a soundbar

      I never had a soundbar before. This is the first one I bought to complement my TV and I have to say...it is amazing. I never realized that my Telly has a crappy sound haha.

      The Sony HT-CT370 differentiates itself from other rectangular soundbars by opting for a diamond shape, thickest in the middle and thinner at the top and bottom. This means you can see and hear both the front and the top when you place the soundbar on a surface. The slim, 35.5 x 4.5 x 2-inch soundbar, wrapped in back fabric, looked great with a 42-inch TV, but it appeared a bit undersized when placed on a shelf below my 55-inch Panasonic P55ST60. You can also mount the soundbar on the wall above or below the TV.

      The set up was very easy. You can pair it wirelessly which of course means that you don't need any extra cables.

      Sony placed three HDMI inputs on the back of the soundbar, along with an HDMI output to connect to your TV. If you don't have HDMI, you can connect to your TV through an optical digital audio or a 3.5mm analog audio input.

      It comes with 300 Watts which means you can make it very loud.

      Overall, Sony's HT-CT370 delivers what you want from a soundbar. It improves the sound quality of movies, TV and music without requiring the space of a dedicated home theater system. With its integrated HDMI inputs and Bluetooth, if offers more connectivity options than most soundbars, especially at this price.

      great value with amazing sound quality

      I personally love all sony products and have continued to buy more and more of their products and last year i was searching for a home cinema system for my room but also the family room and then i saw this which was although expensive but it was portable and easily moveable and could be shifted from one room to the next with ease. The system itself is high quality and produces a great sound which mixes with a swirl of colours which makes the image seem realistic making your viewing experience more enjoyable and well FUN…it really increases your viewing experience of films and tv shows which can be enjoyed by the family due to the sheer size of the screen that it creates backed with surround sound it feels like your being cushioned by sound i love it. When it first arrived it was extremely easy to setup with clear instructions and even if you don't understand them then you can search online or go to customer support which i found was very clear. Although the initial cost is expensive you must also consider that there are extra and additional costs which must be considered but this does not overlook the fact that it is very functional and an incredible piece of technology which i believe can actually bring people together because there is nothing like a film on a big screen to bring people together and it certainly did in my household. also the sound system was incredible and increased the viewing experience for me and my family. The sound quality was very impressive and it felt like i was stuck in the middle of the action in every single film it just changed the way i watched films forever…buy this-its amazing.

      Nice product With HDMI, Bluetooth and a wireless subwoofer, Sony's HT-CT370 delivers plenty of features

      In order to maintain their sleek profiles, some soundbars take the idea of simplicity in home theater audio too far: They strip out all the extras that an audio-video receiver offers, such as a way to consolidate your HDMI connections or stream music via Bluetooth. Sony's HT-CT370 preserves those features and yet packs them in a streamlined design. Thanks in part to its wireless subwoofer, this soundbar also delivers improved sound for movies and TV.
      The Sony HT-CT370 differentiates itself from other rectangular soundbars by opting for a diamond shape, thickest in the middle and thinner at the top and bottom. This means you can see and hear both the front and the top when you place the soundbar on a surface. The slim, 35.5 x 4.5 x 2-inch soundbar, wrapped in back fabric, looked great with a 42-inch TV, but it appeared a bit undersized when placed on a shelf below my 55-inch Panasonic P55ST60. You can also mount the soundbar on the wall above or below the TV.

      Sony placed three HDMI inputs on the back of the soundbar, along with an HDMI output to connect to your TV. If you don't have HDMI, you can connect to your TV through an optical digital audio or a 3.5mm analog audio input. You select your input source using the button on top of the soundbar, via the remote control or Sony's free SongPal app for Android and iOS.
      Unfortunately, even if you've connected the soundbar to your TV by HDMI, the HT-CT370 doesn't offer an onscreen display, something JBL's Cinema SB400 does offer. If you find the display limiting, the SongPal app provides a more visual approach to tweaking the settings, via Bluetooth


      Once I connected everything, I needed to adjust the tone settings to get the best sound from the system. The defaults produced sound that was too bright and didn't take advantage of the extra bass the subwoofer could provide. I increased the volume of the subwoofer to 10 out of a max 13 and reduced the treble to -3. I also found that the ClearAudio+ sound field worked best for most TV shows, movies and music, even though the unit offers separate settings for movies, music, sports and more.

      Advantages

      • "Great price for it's quality"
      • Bluetooth
      • "Incredible sound"
      • "3 HDMI inputs"
      • "Straightforward setup"

      Disadvantages

      • "There are some cheaper soundbars out there"

      Various HDMI ports, incredible sound from a low profile framework, bluetooth.. amazing.

      This fit my need precisely. The low profile of the Soundbar is a major change over Sony's earlier lineup (ct660, ct260). The tallness is right around 2 inches contrasted with the more seasoned adaptations that were around 4. This works incredible in light of the fact that it doesn't meddle with your screen in the event that you set it up on a stand.

      We utilize this Soundbar as a part of a family room and its' bounty capable for ordinary utilization. Sound is great!

      Setup was straightforward. The Soundbar has 3 HDMI inputs! This item coordinates extremely well with our Sony TV. Not certain how it would function with a non Sony or more seasoned TV. At the point when the TV is turned on it naturally turns on the Soundbar and changes from TV speakers to the Soundbar. You can then control the volume with your Time Warner remote (expecting your TV is modified)

      All around, this is an incredible worth for the price. There are numerous less expensive Soundbars out there. I haven't discovered one that matches all Sony brings to the table. Various HDMI ports, incredible sound from a low profile framework, Bluetooth, remote sub, numerous listening alternatives.

      Late entry to a great race

      Home cinema systems are extremely expensive, however they are obviously coming down in price as more and more enter the market and the longer that they are on the market. Sony were a late entry to this market and so may have appeared to originally suffered from this, however the wait was certainly worth it. This piece of machinery is a wonderful creation.

      The general look of the device is fantastic so looks sophisticated wherever you place it. The black colour fits with any colour scheme in any room, which is great, so means that anyone can buy it. Having said this, in order for you to connect this to the TV, you need to buy a separate HDMI cable, but this is the same with most blu-ry, DVD or home cinema systems, so is not an issue. All other cables are included though, which makes set up much easier, although the instructions are difficult to follow as they make little sense to those of us who do not speak 'tech' language.

      The sound that is emitted from this small device is outstanding. It is not what you would expect from such a small box at all and so knocks your socks off. It is so clear and resonates perfectly around whatever room you place it in. The ratio of base is perfection and so is pleasing to the ear.

      The remote control matches the box in both colour and style so again works in any room and is also easy to use, allowing all the family to take control of this box.

      Advantages

      • "sleek and elegant"
      • Slim

      Disadvantages

      • "A tad hard to fine tune"

      Exellent piece of kit from Sony

      Sony HT-CT370 2.1 Sound box.
      For starters all I can say is WOW, what a piece of kit. Sony as a brand were late in entering the market with this baby but what a surprise.
      It is slim, sleek and black, all the things that are needed in a sound box and sits comfy anywhere you want to put it. There is a enough cables with it to do whatever you want but there is no HDMI cable which would have to be bought separately. You can connect your ipod, and phones to it as well through the “bluetooth” channel only of course when the TV is not on.
      The instruction book is quite thorough if followed step by step, and fine tuning takes a little bit to get it right though I am sure you can accomplish this when common sense is used.
      The remote also comes with this kit and is really self-explanatory; it of course is also black like most remotes.
      Now for the sound, sit down and listen like you have not listened before, the sound that comes from this sound box is remarkable, for music it is clear as a bell and speech has an astounding quality of clarity, also when there is background music on a film you will see the clarity even more so, this is amazing. There is also a base speaker that comes with this piece of kit and is wireless connected of course by the Bluetooth.
      To sum this baby up, do not hesitate to buy it as from the moment you have this installed you never look at another one.
