    Expert review

    The Sony HT-XT2 sound base aims to beef up your TV sound to make watching movies more exciting. It's designed to be used as part of a multi-room music system too, so this device could potentially solve all your living room audio problems, in one small package. We sent it to our lab to find out whether it lives up to that billing.

    What's included:
    • Pros and cons
    • What type of sound bar is it?
    • How does it sound?
    • What's it like to use?
    • Should I buy it?
