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.
