... my 55'' Sony 4k TV (model xbr55x850d) and really like it so far
I bought this for my 55'' Sony 4k TV (model xbr55x850d) and really like it so far. Good sound quality, very easy to set up, and I like being able to play music from my phone or tablet as well. I live in an apartment and did not want to disturb my neighbors so it is very useful to be able to control the sub woofer volume, which you can do with this soundbar. It also has a "night" mode which keeps some of the "surround" sound properties at a quieter setting. Originally I looked into some of Sony's higher priced soundbars but I couldn't find any way to verify if the sub woofers could be adjusted for output strength on them (the guy at Best Buy said he didn't know and couldn't find this info when he looked it up, so I didn't buy the soundbar there). I wasn't sure I would be able to adjust the sub on this model either when I ordered it from amazon but it turns out you can-I am not sure if this is a feature of all of Sony's soundbars or what, they should make this info easier to find or maybe I didn't look hard enough. I did listen to the CT-790 model and one other at Best Buy - I would say the sound quality on Sony's more expensive soundbars is a little better and the sub woofers are more powerful. Having said that, I am very happy with this model; it sounds good to me and I still set the sub to a lower level in my apartment so that I don't annoy the neighbors as the highest it goes is still probably a bit much for my apartment.
