Sony HT-CT770 2.1 Sound Bar w/Wireless Subwoofer review: This sleek speaker delivers the goods

Christopher Null | Feb. 18, 2015
The Sony HT-CT770 is a sleek and relatively compact unit that fits in unobtrusively with any home theater setup. The 41-inch long bar lies flat on your entertainment center, or you can prop it up with the included foot stands.

I did experience a nagging issue with the first HT-CT770 unit I received. While initial setup was easy, the unit would switch to Bluetooth pairing mode any time I turned off my audio source while cranking the volume up to near max. The soundbar was also unable to be turned off at all (short of unplugging it). Fortunately, a replacement unit solved the problem. Sony's guess was that the original unit was damaged during shipping, but it's worth noting the box had not been damaged when I received it.

Build-quality concerns (or bad luck) aside, the unit makes for a compelling speaker, providing powerful, high-grade audio in an attractive and relatively compact package.
