The Sony HT-CT290 is seeing a price drop at a number of places today including Amazon. As a result buyers can now pick up this Sound Bar for only $148 which represents a hefty discount compared to its close to $300 usual price. Making now a great time to upgrade your home audio system for an improved home theater and general listening experience.
Some of the major selling points with this model (which is a 2017 model) is that it is a Bluetooth-enabled sound bar. Therefore, as well as adopting the backbone role of your home audio setup, the Sony HT-CT290 is also able to play audio files received over Bluetooth from devices including smartphones and tablets. Adding to that this is also a soundbar that is designed to be super slim so those who prefer a more minimalist-looking setup can have a powerful sound bar without having to compromise on size and space.
Speaking of which, this is a fairly powerful sound bar with the total output on offer coming in at 300-watts. This is made up through the use of a 2.1 channel system where the sound bar comes equipped with a driver at each, along with the separate dedicated bass unit for lower frequencies. The bass unit is able to be positioned horizontally or vertically, while the sound bar can be attached to the wall if preferred. Two aspects which further add to the system's general level of versatility. Likewise, the bass unit is able to wirelessly connect to the sound bar so besides the cable connecting the sound bar to the TV, this is a fairly wireless and powerful home audio solution. In addition to Bluetooth, the Sony HT-CT290 also features all the usual ports including HDMI and optical, and also does come equipped with a USB port – which can be used to charge connected devices when needed.
