Features

Breathe new life into music and movies with its high volume and clarity of sound with a rated output of 350 watts and 2.1 channel front surround sound. Enjoy clear, high fidelity sound with Dolby TrueHD lossless audio compression format.

Design and build

The Sony CT800 is a unique looking bar that is designed at an angle. The top of the bar has a brushed metal finish and has a metal grill covering the speakers. The grill isn’t flat with the soundbar and is slightly raised. The rest of the bar is made from plastic that has a glossy finish, and the base has a matte finish, but this won’t be very visible. Speakers located on each side of the soundbar provide clear sound in the mid and high frequency ranges, and a wireless subwoofer makes the bass sound rich and bright.
