Sony HT-CT80 review

Key features
  • Wireless subwoofer included
Reviewed

Entry-level sound bars like the Sony HT-CT80 might not give you the full surround-sound experience, but they can deliver a better, more immersive sound than you get from your TV without breaking the bank. The HT-CT80 is broadly similar to the HT-CT180, a previous Best Buy winner, but where that model had a wireless active subwoofer, this cheaper sound bar makes do with a cables passive sub. Does this make for a worse sound, or are you still getting good value for money?
