Sony HT-CT150
REVIEW

Sony HT-CT150

Sony's HT-CT150 sound bar home theater system sounds great and is way ahead of the competition with its three HDMI inputs; however, its IR receiver limits the subwoofer's placement options.

Sony BDV-E770W
REVIEW

Sony BDV-E770W

The Sony BDV-E770W is one of the best Blu-ray home theater systems we've tested, with excellent sound quality, tons of streaming-media options, 3D compatibility, and wireless rear speakers. The lack of HDMI inputs is the only big omission.

Yamaha YSP-5100
REVIEW

Yamaha YSP-5100

The Yamaha YSP-5100 sound bar has an outstanding assortment of features and best-in-class virtual surround, but it's very expensive and doesn't sound much better than the step-down YSP-4100.

Onkyo HT-S7200
REVIEW

Onkyo HT-S7200

While its bulky design isn't for everyone, you'd be hard-pressed to find a more full-featured and better sounding all-in-one 7.1 home theater system for the price than the Onkyo HT-S7200.

REVIEW

Eos Converge Wireless Transmitter

The Eos Converge Wireless Transmitter is easy to use and performs well, we just wish it wasn't so bulky.

Samsung HT-AS730ST
REVIEW

Samsung HT-AS730ST

The Samsung HT-AS730's unimpressive sound quality, finicky HDMI ports, unreadable display, and tedious input system will have you looking elsewhere for a Blu-ray-ready home theater package.

Onkyo HT-S9100THX
REVIEW

Onkyo HT-S9100THX

The Onkyo HT-S91000THX breaks the HTIB mold, offering four HDMI inputs, full-size speakers, and the best sound we've heard to date from an all-in-one system.

REVIEW

Polk Audio SurroundBar 360

The Polk Audio SurroundBar 360 DVD Theater delivers excellent sound from a single speaker bar, with the lack of built-in Blu-ray being the real sticking point.
