Jeffrey, Leyland

Score 3.0/10
Good points:
It sits under the television. It does this well. That's all it does well.
Bad points:
Sound quality is chronic but it works. Unlike the two BOSE systems that failed after only a few weeks use with exactly the same problem.

Ash, Colchester Home cinema enthusiast

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
Sound is excellent, particularly from Blueray disks. Simple elegant design with lots of features and the unit integrates well with my Sony TV. This device does not have a the separate woofer, which makes the wife happy, and simplifies installation.
Bad points:
Instruction manual regarding the installation of the device needs to be clearer e.g. mentions the HDMI ARC connector and recommends its use but no reason why.

Zam, Nelson Bass music and movies

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
Bass control is a joy. Real surround cinema sound and options for other popular modes that are noticeably different. Cleverly uses the to cabinet it's sat on as the boom box. Good sub frequencies. ARC is very handy for most functions.
Bad points:
Temporarily misplaced the htxt3 remote and so had to settle for the last 'sound field' until I found the remote! With ARC i.e using the TVs remote I can control everything except the sub and sound modes which I think are just as important parameters as volume and channel. In audio settings theres no options to actually change this manually which is bizarre - have to use the htxt3 remote which almost makes the ARC useless.

Manufacturer's Description

Enjoy the subtlest nuances of studio-quality sound with High-Resolution Audio. Passion for music unites every component from signal to speaker, while advanced technologies such as digital upscaling help create the ultimate listening experience.

Switch seamlessly between immersive movie sound and rich High-Resolution Audio. With 2.1ch virtual surround technology and built-in subwoofers, the HT-XT3 delivers deep, powerful sound that puts you at the heart of the action. The all-in-one design sits beneath your TV, so you can save on space.

This 2.1ch base speaker gives your movie soundtracks the depth they deserve, thanks to the 350W power output and dual built-in subwoofers.

Connect to a multitude of other devices with HDMI, analogue, and optical inputs.

Stream High-Resolution class audio via Bluetooth with LDAC, which supports up to three times the bitrate of regular Bluetooth®.

The base speaker features powerful dual subwoofers, lending your films and music depth of sound and a great lower-mid range. It also features two-way coaxial drivers and a super tweeter, for great listening across all frequencies.

The S-Master HX digital amplifier reproduces the subtleties and wide range of High-Resolution Audio formats, with none of the distortion.

DSEE HX upscales compressed digital music (MP3, ACC, ATRAC, and WMA). It restores the highs and lows lost in compression, producing rich sound closer to High-Resolution Audio quality.

Combining Sony sound technologies, ClearAudio+ optimises audio so you hear music, dialogue, and sound effects with greater clarity and separation.

Maximum sound, minimum space. The coaxial speaker design combines a woofer and tweeter in a single two-way speaker unit to deliver a wide range of low and high-end tones. Working in unison with the built-in subwoofers, this enables the HT-XT3 to reproduce full-frequency sound in High-Resolution detail.

The base speaker’s super tweeter complements the ultra-wide frequency range, delivering soaring highs and great top-end sound reproduction.

Take your streaming to a new level. Developed by Sony, the LDAC codec supports up to three times greater bitrate than typical Bluetooth streaming, 96 kHz sampling rates, and more efficient coding for greater than CD quality sound.
