The Sony 2.1ch Soundbar + Wireless Subwoofer Set from Costco features S-Force PRO Front Surround for cinematic sound, X-Balanced Speaker Units for clear dialog, and a wireless subwoofer for deeper bass. The sound bar uses both high-quality Dolby Digital and S-Force PRO Front Surround, Sony’s virtual surround sound technology, to emulate theater-style surround sound. Technologies such as the X-Balanced Speaker Unit and Separated Notch Edge on the speaker unit help enhance vocal clarity. A powerful wireless subwoofer with a large unit delivers a deeper, richer bass sound. The soundbar choice of sound settings includes Voice mode for clearer dialog, Night mode for when you want to watch TV without waking the house, and Sound Field, which converts conventional soundtracks such as stereo audio into a surround sound experience. But not only can you enjoy rich, cinematic surround sound while watching tv and movies, you can also play your favorite music through your soundbar using Bluetooth technology to wirelessly stream music from your smartphone, tablet, or laptop. To manage expectations, this Sony product is on the lower end of the price range of their soundbar products.
