Sound Sustem for Bravia

Rate this question

Question

We have had a Bravia 46FX400 Television for over a year and we are quite happy with it. The only gripe we have is the sound quality but then what should one expect from a pair of midget speakers pointing toward the wall behind the TV

.

Last week we decided it was time for an improvement. Understand that we have no desire for a "Home Theater", just some modicum of improvement in the sound quality.

The first system that seemed to fit the bill was the "Bose Solo" setup. We were ready to order one when it occurred to us to see if there was a Sony system that was competitive that might be a better match with the Sony, Bravia TV. A little research quickly made it appear that the Sony HT-CT260 was the perfect unit so we purchased one.

However, after studying the installation manual it appears that we will be adding a third Remote Control to the collection which is the last thing we want.

We already must use the TV Remote to turn the TV on and make input selections as well as other adjustments then for Channel changes etc, we must use the Cable Remote.

Are we I going to have to use the "Sound Bar Remote" as well in the daily operation or will the Sound Bar simple turn on and off and operate as an extension of the TV?

Mike

I have the HT-CT550 which is similar, I think. Its remote is specially set up to work a Sony TV. Maybe that's what you want. It has all the special Sony buttons (Bravia Sync etc). Unfortunately mine is not working with a Sony TV, so I have the same problem as you, too many remotes!

whatever you do, don't buy bose, it's the worst price-quality ever, if you really want to spend good money on a system you should go for something like a marantz amp with B&W speakers or so, 10x the quality of bose fo the same price
