Sony 2.1 Channel Soundbar + Wireless Subwoofer is rated 3.9 out of 5 by 97.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Purchased last weekend and very happy Very reasonable price considering the high sound quality and good set of features. I currently have it connected to my TV via an Optical cable and can't complain about the sound quality at all. It aso has bluetooth with NFC so connecting to a phone is no trouble. Another great feature is 'Night Mode' (basically, when enabled from the remote it cuts back on the base/high notes and makes it less likely to wake anyone up). The only thing missing IMO is a HDMI input - Optical is fine quality wise, but it means that you can't control the volume via the TV, and you'll need two remotes.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing sound quality and accessability This product gives out a solid sound quality that has enhanced my experience of watching movies at home and listening to my music, whilst around the house. The fact that it has minimal wires makes it REALLY simple to set up and have around the room (my sub woofer is hidden behind the door but it still gives a great bassy sound that fills the room). Linking this device to smart phones and tablets is easy, either with the WiFi or Bluetooth connection. I was sceptical about getting a new soundbar system but glad I have as it is a lot smaller and better than my previous Pioneer home theatre system.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good but not great sound Got this to go with my Sony 4K TV and PS4 Pro and the set up was nice and easy, however, first imprressions of the sound, whilst good was not great with not much in the way of bass through whilst watching the TV. I upgraded my HDMI cable to a more expensive 18Gps 4k cable and the results were much better. The bass came alive much more and the sound whilst playing the PS4 Pro and watching Blu Ray movies was really good. Never going to be as good as a full home theatre system but perfect for a gaming-set up. The wireless sub woofer is a great addition and have found that I get the best bass from it when it is away from the TV and behind where I am sitting, also gives the sound more depth.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from GOOD SOUND Bought in conjunction with a 4K HDR Sony XE90 TV. The soundbar fits perfectly below the TV to allow for the use of the infra red handset. Easy to set up and plug in with HDMI (ARC) and bluetooth with the sub woofer which sits on the floor next to TV unit. Synchronisation with TV was faultless. Quality of sound is excellent especially with movies even when used without the sub woofer switched on. Plays music from a plug in USB to the rear with an on screen menu although does not include shuffling of songs.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Out of sync I bought this a month ago, together with a new Sony 65” TV. Both give a lovely picture and sound, however I am very frustrated, because even though I have connected the products as shown in the instructions, after a while the sound goes out of sync with the picture, and can only be rectified by switching the tv and soundbar one-off and on again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic Product - Buy It The sound quality, dynamic range and volume of this Sound Bar is unbelievable! It made me get rid of my beloved Hi-Fi System because the Sound Bar sounds better. I bought it with a Sony Bravia 4K HDR TV. Downloading Spotify was simple and the sound makes the hairs on my neck stand up! I can easily Bluetooth into it from my phone and the sound is still incredible. It's the best rendition of MP3 files I have ever heard. Buy it and you won't be disappointed. FANTASTIC!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Some issues with syncing. Am very happy with the sound, and love the fact the Sub is wireless that requires no set up. However, I do have two problem with the sound bar. 1. I have a syncing issues with the sound from the Sky box. I can not find anyway on the sound bar to adjust this, no problem with the other sources, and no problem when using the TV speakers. It only occurs when using the HDMI cable rather than the optical. I prefer to use optical however the I loose the auto power / arc feature, bit of a design floor. 2. Then arc auto power on / off feature seems to loose it's memory evrytime I turn the system off by the mains. I have everything on and if I turn the TV to standby the sound bars goes off as one would hope. When I turn the TV on again the sound bar follows, great. However then at night when I turn everything off by the mains, the following morning I turn the power on and the TV on and no sound bar! It would now need to be manual powered.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from So frustrating! Although the sound is fairly good, this sound bar’s height is a good half inch above the bottom of the new Sony tv it came with. This means that when it is in front of the TV on a table top set up, it prevents the TV remote connecting with the TV - an amateur design fault in my opinion. We’ve had to raise the TV so unless you are in the minority and are wall mounting this set up, expect much frustration and fiddling!
