Surpasses Expectations
 
I just moved from a townhouse where my bedroom was 19x19. I have a 46" Sony Bravia TV, and I employed a 7.1 Onkyo sound system to complete my dream home system. But since we needed to downsize to a small apartment where the Bravia would be placed in a smaller living room, the Onkyo would be overkill, plus I didn't want the clutter of the wiring. So just before we moved, the Sony HT-CT500 came out. I knew it couldn't match the sound of separate speakers, but still, wow!!! The difference between t...

Not So Quick...
 
I tried to read as much as I could about the CT-500 prior to it being released. Still shocked at the lack of reviews for such a highly awaited piece of equipment. Once it was released to the public I had one in my house within two weeks. Very impressed with the shipping and packaging...arrived undamaged due to the care Sony uses in packing their electronic equipment. I also bought a very expensive Bravia 46in XBR8 to go with my CT-500. I was very disappointed that Sony did not make a bracket to ...

Excellent soundbar/subwoofer option.
 
This is one slick little soundbar/subwoofer combination. A significant improvement over the previous offering, the CT100. The sound bar is bigger than that model and feels like it is better constructed. The subwoofer is a solid piece of work as well.Now for the important part, sound quality. The sound quality is much better than the old model and I would say it approaches the quality of the more expensive Yamaha YSP sound bars. You will probably have to do a little tweaking with...

Fantastic Product
 
I really wish this product was around 5 years ago. I had just purchased a HDTV and found out I needed to upgrade to a receiver with HDMI and Component inputs to implement a surround sound setup. I absolutely loathe hooking up Home Theatre equipment whether it's contorting my body to get to the back of the receiver, organizing the web of wires, running of speaker wire under carpet/behind walls... Not to mention the receiver/speaker setup we when with was 5 years ago was 2-3 times more than th...

CT100 trumped by it bigger brother, the CT500
 
As many know, I was a big fan of the CT100. CNET loved it and so did many other reviewers, and others noticed it as well due to its extremely low price that it was the best bang for your buck you could get at the time. That's when critics and users had a mixed result on, some liked it and some didn't with varying reviews from the user/consumer base. Even though I didn't have as many issues as others, It most likely had to do with where it was located (small room), tweaking the CT100 (which I'm f...

Sony HTCT500 Soundbar/Sub system
 
I decided on purchasing a Soundbar for the same reason that many folks do; to eliminate speakers and wires. I was prepared for a reduction in sound quality in my 20x20 two story viewing room after removing my Yamaha surround sound receiver & 5 speaker/sub woofer arrangement and replacing it with the Sony HTCT500. After playing this system every night for a few weeks, I must say that the Sony HTCT500 is performing very well and has exceeded my expectations - to a degree.Out of the box per...

Very Happy with my Sony CT-500 soundbar !!!!!!
 
I've been a soundbar junkie for years and have owned in the past almost ALL of the Yamaha YSP's ever released and have also owned the older Sony CT-100, the CT-500 is a big improvment over the older CT-100.Big jump in sound quality and the surround effect, plus on-screen menu's, more connection options and a bigger wider more powerful soundfield,,, the subwofter is even much improved sound wise from the older CT-100 as well.As with any soundbar though, they will not work in eve...

recommend HT-CT500
 
It has now been a week since I set up the unit. This home theater system made by Sony is a pleasant suprise. Model HT-CT500.I am very impressed with the multiple HDMI ports which made set up a snap. The cable/satellite box and high def DVD connect to the back of the subwoofer and then one lead goes to the TV. All HDMI. Very straight forward and simple. No pass-though signal loss or degredation noted.I was never comfortable with the former phono plug cables as far as consistent tone q...

Sony HT-CT500
 
I wanted a better sound from my 42" Sony TV particuarly for playing blue-ray movies and this is the product!. The TV/Sound System is set up in our sitting area (12' X 14') off our master bedroom and what a difference it made. The Sony Sound System is almost an overkill for this small area. Extremely easy to set up. The sound bar has sticky rubber feet that fits perfectly on the Sony TV stand with no vibrations. You can turn the volume all the way up without distortion. You have to read ...

Looking for an improvement... this is good (not great or excellent)
 
If you are tired of the hollow sound you get from your LCD/Plasma internal speakers this is definitely an upgrade for you... Is this a fantastic system like you read from other reviews (it is all based on the individual and the room size, which matters)...I have a decent sized family room that has an open loft and cathedral ceilings... My wife and I were tired of the terrible sound from our Samsung 47" LCD so I was researching and researching soundbars and almost pulled the trigger o...
