First Look: Sony HT-CT500 Sound Bar Home Theater System

1:01 /

Sony's single-speaker surround-sound home theater system is sleek, relatively inexpensive, and actually sounds pretty good.

[ Music ] ^M00:00:02 >> Hi, I'm Molly Wood from CNET.com here at the Sony 2009 Line Show. I am taking a Look at the HT-CT500 Home Theater System which is all contained in this little speaker bar right here. It is a single speaker surround sound system. It accepts 1080p inputs. It has 3 HDMI ports on the back and 1 out and it is overall as you can see extremely compact. It can hang either on the wall as a wall-mounted speaker or fit into a TV stand and it delivers 3.1 channel surround sound, again out of this one speaker. Now we did get a chance to crank up the sounds... ^M00:00:36 [ Music ] ^M00:00:41 >> And it was pretty impressive. It also does picture upscaling over components and in general is a pretty good price. It should be available in June for about $500. Again this is the CT-HT500 Home Theater System from Sony and for CNET.com, I'm Molly Wood. ^M00:00:57 [ Music ]
