Sony HT-XT1 Review
https://youtu.be/AdN9BNacUd4This is my review of the Sony HT-XT1 2.1 Home Theater System. It has been a while since my last sound bar review. When I picked this up I did not expect much. Sound bars are are often the lukewarm of home audio, being better than just tv audio but not full surround sound. In the box an Optical Digital Cable is included, a remote, batteries and the sound bar.
Sony HT-XT1 Design
The Sony HT-XT1 2.1 has a slim profile with a clear soft light display behind the speaker grill. The look and feel of this sound bar will fit well with any television. The controls for the Sony HT-XT1 have a touch interface, which is a nice touch. So far, I am impressed.
In the rear of the Sony HT-XT1 there is a Digital Audio In, Analog In, 3 HDMI IN ports, and one HDMI out.
Sony HT-XT1 Remote
The remote is slim and well designed. It controls Input, Volume, Sound Field, which gives ideal settings for things like movies and games. There are hidden buttons within the remote. The hidden buttons enable you to fine tune the HT-XT1. There is a night button which basically minimizes the bass so that it doesn’t disturb people in other rooms. Sony also provides the Songpal app for control from your mobile device.
This sound bar has bluetooth. Bluetooth wireless connectivity works well allowing for audio play back from your phone or tablet.
Sound Quality exceeded my expectation. There are numerous preset sound profiles for when you are watching sports or movies. You can also adjust bass, treble and sync.
Bass performance is usually where sound bars completely loose me, but the built in subwoofer performs really well, delivering, warm engrossing audio.
The Sony ht-xt1 2.1 channel soundbar with built-in subwoofer is a great sound bar that will significantly improve the audio from your television. It is ideal for apartment dwellers and compliments televisions in smaller rooms.
