Great addition to sony bravia tv. Brought this soundbar to go with my sony bravio tv and its great, it goes really loud, no more tinny sound, the sub has nice base, and i don’t even have it on full volume. Takes around half hour to get it all plugged in and to go through all the settings to how you want it, and now it’s all synced it all comes on with touch of the sky remote.
Long, shallow, sleek looking soundbar with subwoofer; gives the illusion of sound from all around the room. . This is the first time i have owned a soundbar, and wow, it certainly opened my eyes, and ears. I had looked at some models in stores and decided that the sound reproduction really wasn’t worth paying so much extra for. This is something different. It’s worth noting that this soundbar is a sizeable piece of kit, it arrived packaged in a large l shaped boxed unit. Out of the boxes the soundbar itself is almost a metre across. It’s not deep or very tall – a fraction over two inches, or 5 cms – and as such doesn’t obscure our tv screen when placed below it. At 38′ our tv is actually on the small side for what this unit can cope with, which is tvs up to 48 inches. The subwoofer speaker is wireless, which means that it is much easier to obtain a balance of sound by moving the speaker around the room once it is set up – no trailing wires snaking up walls to a shelf or bookcase where the speaker is perched.

Connecting to the ipad is easy. Brought this to go with my 42 sony bravia kdl43w75 led hd, got it in the sale. It integrates well with the tv control. However the bar its self does block the ir signal to the tv in the end i moved the sound bar under the tv cabinet, which offers more protection from the kids. Connecting to the ipad is easy. Sound is good, much better than a standlone tv.
Ok sound not up with the best tho dissapointed.
Be sure you connect sound bar in correctly. . This sound bar is very good but be aware, if your attaching a ps4 and tv you must plug hdmi from ps4 to sound bar and then hdmi from sound bar to tv otherwise you will not get full effect. Only proceed like this if your tv has a arc hdmi connection, otherwise you will not experience the true sound effects. Only realised this after plugging the connections in wrong and wondering why the sub woofer wasn’t working correctly.

I was looking for a one box solution to improve the sound from my flat screen tv, also enable music playback from apple devices. The ht-ct380 is easy to set up, neat, and simple to configure with the small remote. Sound quality is perfectly acceptable but not perfect. It certainly beats the internal speakers. If you want to control the sound bar volume through your sky remote, here’s how:turn everything onon sky remote press tv buttonpress and hold select + 0 until red light blinks twiceenter code 2200press left arrow – sound should turn offpress tv button againhold and press select + 1 until red light blinks twicepress sky button, and the volume keys will operate the sound barhope this helps.
