5.0 out of 5 stars Dont even worry....., June 22, 2010
This review is from: Sony HT-CT150 3D Sound Bar System (Discontinued by Manufacturer) (Electronics)
I was skeptical I admit

I moved out of my house into a much smaller townhouse and I had to give up my Klipsche 2 series 5.1 system.....I HATED giving up surround sound. I have been bouncing back forth between this one and the CT350 model. I was scared that this wouldn't be as loud as I would like it........wow was I wrong. The room I have it in is only 11 X 15 (system on short side) and this thing is fantastic. It has a max volume of 50 and I find 24 to be more than enough. Is it true 5.1....no... but it has great surround effects and very full sound.....you will feel like the action is going around you which is what we all want anyway isn't it?

I tested it with Avatar Blu Ray..... Lord of the Rings ROTK Disc 2 DVD......Invictus ON Demand (for the accents.....hard on TV speakers).....was blown away each time

I turned up the center to +5 to bring out the dialog a little more and set the sub at +2

I also mounted the speaker ABOVE the TV which I feel really helps to bring out the surround effects because they don't get lost down near the ground around the furniture

It is a little slow switching inputs but that is to be expected......the remote will only control Sony products....so if you have non Sony stuff invest in a Harmony remote

If you are planning this for a really large room and you are going to be sitting 17 or more feet away maybe you should consider the 400W 350 model..... but for a normal room you will be thrilled by this unit.

I couldnt be more happy with this purchase

Many people have difficulty when listening to electronically compressed accents (accents different from their own, of course) and non-native languages -- for example, over the phone, but also on the TV. This is well-known. Similarly, one's comprehension can go way down in a noisy bar, even if one's comprehension of someone speaking one's native language with an accent similar to one's own would *not* go down. There's nothing stupid about that. It's just that the sound compression and of course poor sound quality makes comprehension that much harder.

As a practicing physician, I am embarrassed and dismayed by your comments: embarrassed by your arrogance and rudeness, and dismayed that you are apparently preparing to represent my profession.

Thanks for the review J. Spencer.
You stated that you put the speaker bar ABOVE your TV. Is there a groove or latch that hooks on top of the TV? or did you mount it on the wall? Is there any way you can post a pic somewhere of your setup?
Thanks

I too am curious about mounting this above the tv. I have the Kinect sensor below, which has a mic and can't have anything sitting directly in the path of the lens.

p.s. Mean people suck *pointing at you MedStudent CZ*

If there is any justice, you will fail out of med school and be in major debt.

What did you use to mount the speaker above your tv? Double sided tape? Velcro?

My guess is he used something similar to this. I'm planning on purchasing it for my television to do the same.

He/She meant that accents in general (any language that is foreign to the listener, including English for those who are not native to America) are "hard [to understand]" on TV speakers. Minus a cool point.
