Sony HT-CT500 Sound Bar Theater System


Two Piece Home Theater System

The Sony HT-CT500 packs a powerful home theater into two pieces — a sound bar and subwoofer — connected only by a single wire. The 3.1 channel theater system features 400 watts (RMS) of total power and a fully functional A/V receiver built into the subwoofer. It has ample connections for all home theater needs with three full HD 1080p HDMI inputs (one out), two component inputs and several audio inputs.

This system also showcases a slim speaker design that matches Sony’s new BRAVIA W5100 and XBR9 television series. (A bracket is provided for attachment to the TV.) The model supports full 1080/60p and 24p video as well as both Deep Color™ and x.v.Color™. For multi-room listening, the unique home theater is S-AIR ready, with the ability to transmit wireless audio up to 164 feet. A Digital Media Port (DMP) allows external audio sources to be easily connected to the system.

Additionally, the system has an icon-based menu that can be blended over 1080p sources (connected via HDMI), allowing for simple navigation through all connected devices. The sound bar system also uses Faroudjas’ DCDi Cinema chip to up-scale all video to near high-definition quality and up-convert analog audio/video signals to HDMI.

The HT-CT500 Sound Bar theater system will be available this June for about $500.
