The Sony 2.1ch Soundbar + Wireless Subwoofer Set from Costco features X-Balanced Speaker Units for clear dialog, a wireless subwoofer for deeper bass, and S-Force PRO Front Surround for cinematic sound. The sound bar uses both Dolby Digital and S-Force PRO Front Surround, Sony’s virtual surround sound technology, to simulate theater-style surround sound. The X-Balanced Speaker Unit and Separated Notch Edge on the speaker works to enhance vocal clarity while the subwoofer provides a deep, rich bass sound.
The Sony Soundbar sound settings include Voice mode for clearer dialog, Night mode for when you want to watch TV without disturbing others, and Sound Field for converting conventional soundtracks like stereo audio into surround sound. 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 laptop, smartphone or tablet. To manage expectations, this Sony product is on the lower end of the price range of their soundbar products.
