Rated 5 out of 5 by Rich145 Very Happy With Purchase
The HTXT1 was just what I was looking for when I set up a whole new home theater system. Along with this purchase I bought a wall unit and 60" TV for a large family room (20'X20') with high ceilings. Visually the HTXT1 is very sleek. I have no cables showing. My wife is happy to be able to seamlessly stream her favorite NY radio station through wireless Bluetooth from her iPhone radio app to the HTXT1. There have been no dropouts that I can recall from 30 ft away. The sound quality for Netflix, Amazon Instant Video, Blue-Ray movies, Xbox 360 games and radio has been terrific and plenty loud enough. My neighbor really likes the system and wants me to convince her husband to give up his bulky home theater system with 5 speakers,sub-woofer and cables spread throughout their family room. This really is a sleek package. Just make sure your TV's stand will fit on the unit and doesn't exceed the weight requirements. I found a nice 60" LED that was light enough and fit perfectly.

Rated 5 out of 5 by sporeboy Excellent space-saving option
Exactly what I was looking for. I have a small Toshiba television with awful sound quality and have had to use a separate sound system to control the audio. I had a receiver setup, but it was quite a hassle to do all the switching and some of the audio channels were'nt coming through.
This Sony sound device setup in a snap, it handles all the switching for my cable box/television and the Blu-ray player. My tablet paired instantly with the NFC link.
Sound A+ for what it is. Separate subwoofer volume from the main volume. The front dislay is simple, but it shows what device is being played. Voice controls, HDMI passthrough. Honestly, it's a pretty well designed sound bar that didn't require my electrician to do the wiring. It exceeds my expectations for a very fair price.

Rated 5 out of 5 by JesusChrysler Phenomenal sound!
Three weeks into owning this stunning sound platform and all I can say is "how did SONY do it?" This device far exceeded my expectations in every way. It easily supports the weight of my 52" TV. It delivers a multitude of sound choices that are pre-programmed into the slick remote.
I was having a difficult time hearing dialogue via my TV speakers or a Vizio sound bar. Now it's like I can really hear again thanks to the many adjustments available for this system.
Great bass, nice tonal separation between sound effects and the spoken word. If you're having problems discerning the spoken word while watching TV this unit does the trick. I have no regrets in deciding on SONY!

Rated 4 out of 5 by Shopper1725 Wonderfully inegrated sound stand
It is perfect for clear and full sound. I wanted an integrated, plug and play, full sound solution to my Sony XBR ultraHD set. I needed clearer sound for voices. I wanted it to work with the TV sound settings. It does both. I would buy this again. Note, it has a big, clear, sound, but it's not really a sourround system. It suits my condo living room well and is clear and full at all volumes, even with the 'night' setting turned on.

Rated 1 out of 5 by mate Disappointed 3d image does not work
The sound HT-TX1 produces is just OK and I know that going in, I got it to connect several components into a projector with only two hdmi inputs. But I'm disappointed to find out it does not push through 3d image (as claimed). I even bought a $20 Sonly HDMI cable in the hope that that will solve the problem, but it did not.
My 3D-BD player is also a Sony product that has no issue when connected directly to a TV or projector.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Dath Good all around system
the Sony sound plate is a good all around system. great full sound and deep bass that sounds just right but you have to find the right settings that you would enjoy. the subwoofer should not be to high where the sound would crackle ie: keep it between 4- or 9 and play around with the other settings until you get the sound you like. Once you achieve that it sounds great you hear every little thing that goes on either watching a movie or playing a Video game. it sounds great for playing music you can attach your smart phone via Bluetooth to stream your music! Its a great purchase!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Dcowgill Outstanding sound
Great sound and with the built in subwoofer it provides a complete sound field. Using it with 5.1 sound source you can hear how the sound positions the center, right, left and the deep bass that creates an overall wall of sound. Does a really descent on standard audio. The connection options make this easy to install and set up. I have a Blu-Ray disc player, my computer and an Apple TV attached. All connections work well. Overall it provides great sound for anything connected and it is really easy to install and setup.

Rated 5 out of 5 by MikeK Very Impressive Sound Bar
We thought the sound bar would be decent, but we have been amazed by how good it is, particularly when watching movies. While not quite the same as our full home theater setup, this sound bar is solid, beautiful, and brings near home theater quality to the new Sony TV in our den. We couldn't be more pleased with it.
