Even if you have a brand-new, spectacular-looking HDTV with lots of cool features, you're still missing something: great sound. The Sony HT-CT770 can solve your problem. This 2.1-channel system features a sound bar with four built-in speakers, so you can enjoy rich, powerful sound along with your TV's larger-than-life picture. Feel those movie sound effects come to life, and understand dialogue the first time, without hitting the "Rewind" button on your remote. The angular design of this sound bar will add a touch of style to your living room. Mount it on your wall or place it on a stand — the built-in gyro-sensor will detect the bar's orientation to properly adjust sound output.
Deep bass response is a must for true home theater — it adds impact to movie sound effects as well as music. The 'CT770's separate subwoofer features a 6-3/8" down-firing woofer, which ensures you get plenty of low-frequency rumble dispersed throughout your room. The subwoofer connects wirelessly to the bar, so it's easy to find a place for it without worrying about where to run wires.
Complement your large-screen TV with the big sound of the Sony HT-CT770 sound bar and subwoofer.
Some sound bars offer HDMI connectivity. But very few offer three HDMI inputs like the HT-CT770. Connect your cable box, Blu-ray player, and gaming system via HDMI to the sound bar. Then a single cable connects the bar to your TV, for a clean setup. The output offers single-remote control capability with TVs that offer HDMI control (CEC) functionality — turning on one component can even trigger other HDMI-connected components to power on. With advanced Dolby® and DTS® audio decoding, as well as 3D and 4K video pass-through, you'll hear and see all the detail your Blu-ray movies offer.
Built-in Bluetooth makes it easy to get the music started with your smartphone, tablet, or compatible computer. Pair your device with the HT-CT770 for wireless playback with tunes stored on your smartphone or streamed from your favorite music service. Download Sony's SongPal app and use your smartphone as a Bluetooth remote to control the sound bar.
With so much functionality, it's nice that Sony provides you the option to optimize this system's sound for various applications. Seven listening modes offer sound tailored for music, movies, sports, video games, even music from portable devices. Having trouble with dialogue? The "voice" feature enhances dialogue clarity by making it stand out in the mix. You can also tweak the bass response of the subwoofer to dial in explosive sound effects, or tame the volume for late night viewing. Best of all, all these tweaks are easily made on the included remote.
Add big sound to your TV without a roomful of speakers. Sound bars require minimal space and wiring, and their sleek designs complement today's flat-panel TVs. Most sound bars have their own built-in amplification, so you won't need to use a home theater receiver. Some models use advanced surround processing and carefully aimed speaker drivers to simulate the effects of a full home theater audio system.
Very good product. I use it mostly for listening to music through the bluetooth. Very good sound from such a small bar
First venture is sound bar usage. I am pleased and works well with Sony TV. First step in quest for ultimate sound quality.
Pros: Hook up is easy
Very good soundbar; nice sound, clearer dialogue, nice bass. Extremely easy to connect, but it does block (partially) the reception from the Sony remote to turn on the TV. That can be fixed by either elevating TV or offsetting the soundbar from being directly in front of the TV. Very nice Bluetooth matching with iPhone and other devices, and it is easy to now play music library directly from phone to soundbar. I'm not saying the soundbar suddenly turns the iPhone into a concert experience, but it is definetly better than just the phone speaker.
Pros: Easy to Connect and works seamlessly with my Sony Bravia flat screen. Much easier to hear dialogue and the subwoofer adds nice base and low frequency sound to movies, TV shows.
Cons: I connected the TV to the soundbar using HDMI and it is a little annoying that (after turning both units on), it will "transfer" the sound from the TV to the soundbar -- you end up losing about 30 seconds of sound/dialog from whatever you are watching during the "transfer". But since both the TV and soundbar are Sony, one remote turns on both, and the "transfer" is automatic.
I was pretty excited to purchase this product, but I have to say it has fallen short of expectations. It was easy to hook up, but it didn't actually work when I did hook it up. I went out and grabbed some new cords fearing that might be the issue...but no luck. A call in to CS at Crutchfield and some time spent on the phone with both of us perplexed finally got things working right. The CS agent was patient and helpful, but it did take a half hour. The sound on the product is great. the only issue is that it randomly stops working and shuts off occasionally. I have had it about three weeks and there is clearly some bug in the system. If it worked consistently this would be a 5 star product....but unfortunately it doesn't. I have had many dealings with Crutchfield and I have to say this one is disappointing.
Pros: Great sound, voice function.
Cons: Connectivity, reliability.
I like Sony products. They perform and last a long time. But this time the Sony HT-CT770 failed. Everything was fine for a couple days then the bass quit working. I did all the Sony book said to do and nothing. ONE phone call to Crutchfield to explain the problem and presto, a new Sony sound was on the way! No questions about what I did wrong, just a sorry that happen. Very nice indeed. Got a return slip and in a couple days, a new Sony sound bar. Way to go staff of Crutchfield. As for the new Sony sound bar, it had transformed our TV. Rich bass and no "tinny" sound any more. The feature I like the most is the setting for music or movies. All and all very happy!
Pros: Ease of set up, the sound, and Crutchfield's great service!
Sound grt8 playing movies....The sub is crossed up too high, because the mids are so small, can't play acurrate bass (mid woofers ) When playing music... Great features, 3HDMI INPUTS, analog input, and app to control everything via iPhone... Grt8 purchase .... Average sound, 5 star feature
Pros: Cheap, good feature
Cons: Mid speaker can't handle full range sound
Easy to assemble. Good quality. I had a problem determining weather to use the HDMI cable or the optical. It came down to what was easier to control the TV and the sound bar. I settled on the HDMI cables. I wish I could control the cable box, sound bar and TV with one remote. I have it down to two.
Pros: Good value for the money. Good sound.
Cons: Instructions could be clearer as to what is the preferred connection for the best performance based on different scenarios. The sub must be set at the highest setting for it to be effective.
Sounds great and connecting different devises via blu tooth is a piece of cake. Had it up and running in less than a minute.
Pros: Looks, sound, ease of use
Cons: it does block my 55" sony 850B remote. To use my sony remote I must raise the remote higher than the soundbar. I also must do this with the sound-bar remote because the way this sound-bar sits in my set up, I am a little lower than the sound-bar so I must raise the remote higer than the sound-bar to use the sound-bar remote. The sensor on the sound-bar for the remote is on top of the sound-bar.
Great soundbar so far! It has some preselected eq ranges that work quite well using the remote control. Crutchfield installed this with along with a Sony TV. We've been very happy with both thus far!
I've had this soundbar for a few months now, still trying to figure it out. I'm by far no professional but I do enjoy listening to my movies and sports on how they were intended. I actually purchased this to replace my Harman Kardon AVR 645 with a Harman Kardon 5.1 speaker system. To me this was a downgrade but I wanted a soundbar because of the reduction of wires and spacesaver. Plus I was skeptic about soundbars, so I went with what I believed to be a safe purchase. Even though I believe I have downgraded my sound system, I still believe it's a decent producing soundbar. The sound is actually pretty impressive and the subwoofer is not Godzilla thumping but its good enough. I am having some issues and some concerns, not sure as to why but when switching from one device to the next it either doesn't switch or doesn't recognize the attached device. Not sure if this is due to the ARC connection or just the soundbar itself malfunctioning. I will probably, more than likely attached my cables to my Samsung 75H6350 TV and see if that will fix the issue but I shouldn't have to do that for $450 worth. The soundbar says it can support this function. I know it is not my cables since I only use Monster HDMI black edition cables. If you're using generic cables you're wrong, upgrade and see the difference. Anyways back to the soundbar.... This soundbar has a nice enough amount of HDMI connections but is it too much for this device to handle?
Pros: Overall, I like it; it does what I want sort of but I wouldn't do it for the price and currently debating to go with the Yamaha YSP-4300. Not knocking on Sony products but if your budget is limited good buy but if you can go with better than go with better.
Cons: Switching devices (possibly ARC Connection); pricey
This is a great soundbar if you want better than tv sound (which isn't hard in most cases), HDMI, and BT. If you want a virtual "surround" this is not a viable option. This system excels at giving you a front and center soundstage only, and the Sub provides a very nice kick. Overal a very nice system.
Pros: Plenty of hookups for a soundbar, the subwoofer can handle its business well, pretty attractive system, produces are rich sound (after adjusting settings).
Cons: Out of the box sound not that good, it takes some tinkering.
Overall pleased with the sound bar.
Pros: Bluetooth is a nice bonus, sound is great.
Cons: I also have a Samsung 7150 TV and as another user stated , and the ARC connection is troublesome. I went with the optical wire connection and feel that i may not be getting the full benifit of the sound system. Also the display is not visable when sitting on a fireplace mantle.
Extremely easy to set up. Needs short break in for best sound. Very pleased with overall sound quality. Used in medium sized bedroom. Stream Pandora, etc. Bluetooth works great. Phone app adequate for basic use.
Pros: Good looking. On wall underneath TV. Good sound. Ease of use.
Cons: None to note.
Long time user of Sony sound bar systems. Overall, a great system. However, as many people have said before, it does need tweaked a bit. The default amp settings aren't the best. The sub drowns out dialogue way too much. Likewise, it takes adjusting the various settings based on how large your room is, and where you have the bar and sub are located. Once you get the settings adjusted, it is easily better than a lot of much higher priced systems. Like other Sony bars, it includes multiple HDMI inputs. Sadly, a number sound bars, (including Sonos Playbar), are "dumb" bars. They either lack HDMI or offer no more than 1 input/output connection. They expect you to connect everything to your TV, and only 1 wire to the bar. It amazes me just how lazy or stupid designers for other bars are. Unless you have a TV that costs over $2,000.00, your TV lacks true Dolby/DTS capability, and when they expect you to use an optical audio cable to connect the bar, (like Sonos again).Unfortunately, this really hurts sound quality because the TV will down mix any surround audio to stereo, and expect the bar to up mix it back and fake the signal. The Sony bar is leaps ahead of much higher priced sound bars. The HT-CT770 handles all your connections, and plays true Dolby/DTS audio. It isn't the absolute best on the market, but between connections and capabilities is easily a good choice to try out.
Pros: Multiple HDMI connections. Easy to use. Many option settings for music, movies, and dialogue. Nice looking bar, with many options for where to place the bar and the sub.
Cons: Lacks the many additional speakers the Sony sound bar HT-ST7 bar has. Lacks the rear speakers the VIZIO 5.1 systems have. However, those systems require the rear speakers being wired to the sub. No system offers true wireless battery powered rear speakers. Neither Sony or any other bar makes use of a long existing technology. If any of them had true wireless rear speakers, powered using solar chargers like pocket calculators use, letting ambient and solar power to power them.
We have had this soundbar for about 2 weeks now and in general really like it. It looks great wall mounted beneath our TV, and the remote gives you full control of the system. One of my favorite aspects of this system is that you can control the volume coming from the subwoofer independent of the main volume for the soundbar. Generally, I think this soundbar sounds really good. The only caveat to this is that I think the soundbar comes into its own as the volume is turned up - when we have it turned down I sometimes struggle to clearly understand dialog in movies. However, there might be some more tweaking that I could do to improve this, and it certainly isn't a deal breaker for me.
The two disappointments for me are 1) even after working with Crutchfield technical service, I haven't been able to make the ARC connection work between this soundbar and our Samsung 7150. I have yet to contact Samsung or Sony, so I'm still optimistic that this might get resolved. 2) I cannot make the soundbar be controlled by the TV remote. This would be resolved by the ARC connection, so the two issues really boil down to one.
Pros: Aesthetics; good (but not necessarily great) sound quality; easy to install; clear instructions; independent control for volume main soundbar and subwoofer
Cons: Cannot get ARC connection to work with Samsung TV; sound quality seems to be better at louder volumes
Pros: Great sound easy set up
Cons: Will not sync with current TV / satellite remotes
This was purchased to redirect the television sound from behind the tv to the front. The sound had formerly been louder in other rooms than sitting in front of it in the same room! This also allowed the sound to be lowered.
Pros: Clearer sound from television. Much more comfortable in all rooms of house.
Cons: There are two remotes now, one for the television and one for the sound. We believe perhaps there is a way to adjust this but we haven't found it yet.
Easy set up great sound easy to use and wireless sub woffer is just as good sounding as the sound bar itself.
Pros: looks great, sounds great, works great love it!
This unit is for small living rooms or bedrooms, it fills the room with great sound and bass , the bluetooth works well with all my units and it's pretty loud
Pros: Bluetooth is great, sound quality is awesome just like being in a theater .
Cons: I prefer you use an HDMI for everything, the Optical wire it comes with is not compatible with TruSurround , therefore it is limited to sound quality but with HDMI you will get all kinds of format sounds
Excellent Soundbar that's very user friendly and easy to setup with 3HDMI connections available which allows you to connect Blu-Ray, Satellite TV box, gaming console all via the best connection HDMI! Hard to find option on many comparable brands! Thanks Crutchfield for recommending this product for my needs of great sound with modern connections and semi- space saving.
Pros: Easy Setup / Install , sounds great for a Soundbar and wireless subwoofer. Greatly enhances TV shows and movies without taking up a lot of precious living room space!

Overview: The Sony HT-CT770 Home Theater System is a two-piece surround sound system which includes an amplified soundbar speaker and a wireless powered subwoofer module. This two-piece home theater system brings simplicity and performance together by pairing an self-amplified soundbar speaker and a wireless powered subwoofer to create a surround sound experience in a compact and easy to install package. The HT-CT770 home theater system features HDMI connectivity, Dolby Digital & DTS decoding, along with S-Force Front Surround; plus built-in Bluetooth w/ NFC. The HT-CT770 includes an IR remote control and offers a free app for your Apple iOS or Android device for wireless operation of the system.
Active Soundbar Speaker: The HT-CT770's soundbar speaker features a two-way driver design with two 0.8125" dome tweeters and two 2.375" midrange cone drivers in an acoustic suspension (sealed) enclosure, powered by a 105-watt x 2-channel S-Master digital amplifier. The soundbar speaker acts as your home theater systems front and center speakers as well as giving you the effect that you have rear speakers positioned behind you. The soundbar speaker can be securely placed on a stand or shelf via its two integrated feet, or even wall mounted using the included brackets and their rear-mounted keyhole slots (mounting screws sold separately). The wall-mount bracket's keyhole slots are spaced 23.875" apart.
Wireless Powered Subwoofer: The HT-CT770 wireless powered subwoofer is equipped with a down-firing 6.375" cone woofer in a bass-reflex enclosure (down-firing port), powered by a built-in 120W S-Master digital amplifier. The wireless powered subwoofer gets its signal from the system's soundbar wirelessly, via 5.8GHZ RF wireless transmission. The wireless powered sub can be placed virtually anywhere in your room. There are no extra audio cables to run; you do have to plug the powered sub into an AC outlet.
S-Force Pro Front Surround: S-Force Pro Front Surround provides realistic surround sound from this two-piece home theater system. Unlike other "virtual surround" technologies, rear sound is generated from the soundbar speaker using sophisticated digital sound processing and does not need to be bounced off of side walls. No matter what the size or shape of the room or what is on the wall, it is possible to hear sounds from behind you without needing to place speakers behind you. You can select from one of the following sound fields to optimize your surround sound experience.
Note: You can also activate ClearAudio+ which automatically makes sound adjustments based on the type of content you are enjoying.
Digital Surround Formats: The HT-CT770 features Dolby Digital and DTS decoding, as well as support for multi-channel PCM. Supported formats include:
Audio Adjustments: The HT-CT770 home theater system offers various audio adjustments to customize your music or movie listening experience.
Note: An internal gyro-sensor detects positioning (wall or table-top) of soundbar speaker to optimize the sound depending on placement.
HDMI Inputs/Output: The Sony HT-CT770 features 3 HDMI inputs and 1 HDMI output which support 4k pass-through, 1080/24p, x.v./Deep Color, and 3D video; as well as ARC & HDMI control, plus Standby Pass-Through. The HDMI jacks transmit both multi-channel audio and high-definition video signals. The system's HDMI inputs/output supports 480i, 480p, 720p, 1080i, 1080p, and 4K.
Note: Because with most televisions, the ARC-enabled HDMI input will only pass 2ch PCM from devices connected to the TV via HDMI or analog, we recommend that you connect your Blu-ray/DVD player, Satellite/Cable box, or Gaming console to the Sony HT-CT770 directly; and then connect the HT-CT770's ARC-enabled HDMI output to your TV's ARC-enabled HDMI input. This setup will give you with the best overall sound performance.
Digital + Analog Audio Inputs: The Sony HT-C770 home theater system features both analog (minijack) audio and digital (optical) audio inputs for connecting external audio sources such as your DVD player and CD player that do not offer HDMI connectivity. There is single minijack (3.5mm) analog audio input and one optical (toslink) digital audio input. The optical digital input supports Dolby Digital, DTS, and 2ch PCM audio signals.
Note: The digital optical output terminals of most newer flat-panel TVs only send an audio signal in 5.1ch when receiving Dolby Digital/DTS surround sound from the TV's built-in tuner, network connection, or connected USB device; and will output only 2ch stereo from sources connected to the TV via HDMI, or RCA (like your Blue-ray/DVD player or satellite/cable box).
Built-in Bluetooth: The Sony HT-CT770 features built-in Bluetooth (version 3.0) with support for A2DP 1.2 & AVRCP 1.3 which allows you to wirelessly stream and control music on your Bluetooth-enabled through the soundbar system.
Note: Due to the differences in Bluetooth technology, some Bluetooth enabled devices may be incompatible, function improperly, or may not support all features when used with the Sony HT-CT770.
IR Remote w/ HDMI Control: The HT-CT770 comes supplied with a full-function IR remote control for wireless operation of the system. The IR remote is programmable and offers HDMI control. In addition to controlling the soundbar speaker system, the remote can be used to operate basic functions (Power On/Off, Volume Up/Down, Input) on select Sony, Samsung, LG, Panasonic, Vizio, Sharp, Toshiba, and Funai TVs. HDMI Control allows you to easily manage and operate an HDMI Control compatible television and other audio/video components with a single remote, when all components are connected via HDMI. By connecting HDMI-CEC components operation is simplified in the following ways:
SongPal Remote App (via Bluetooth): By downloading Sony's free SongPal remote app (from iTunes or Google Play), you can use your Apple iOS (6.0+) or Android (2.3+) device to control the HT-CT770 system via Bluetooth. From the SongPal remote app, you can select input sources, switch to other entertainment apps, and customize sound settings of the soundbar speaker system. You'll need to exit this app to stream & control stored music or music apps on your Bluetooth-connected phone.

I have a similar issue. When turning on, the device reverts to HDMI 3 even after I changed to HDMI 1. I switched to a universal controller (Logitech Harmony 650) which specifically sends the HDMI 1 signal, and the same issues occurs. I assume this is boot error in the HT CT770. [ Pat Aug 10, 2015 ]
The ports on the back are well labeled and easy to use instructions come in the manual. The output goes to the TV letting you choose which input to use for your devices. I use HDMI 1 for my cable and HDMI 3 for my Blu-Ray. [ Pat Apr 04, 2015 ]
I don't remember but it was not difficult and we are not techies. [ Paula Apr 03, 2015 ]
Yes there is an instruction book with the different wiring methods [ GERALD Apr 03, 2015 ]
There are directions for hooking the unit up. It is literally connecting the hdmi from the sound bar to the tv. I have mine also hooked up to a PlayStation. So all that really involved was taking fhe hdmi from the PlayStation to the sound bar & another hdmi from the sound bar to the tv. I am using the fiber optic cable as well per the instructions which just plugs into the bar to the tv. Overall from unpacking to set up took about 15 minutes [ Adam Apr 03, 2015 ]
Not needed, very simple to hook up!! Great product, you will be very pleased. [ Anthony Apr 03, 2015 ]
It does come with two feet and two screws that raise it about an inch and a half if laying flat on a surface. The supplied feet are also meant to be used in wall mounting of the soundbar. If yours doesn't come with them as others stated, I would make sure to let the store know. [ Adam Jan 24, 2015 ]
Hello Jami, Yes, there are two feet that will raise the sound bar 1 1/2 inches in the rear and 1/8 inch in the front. The feet slope. The sound bar fits reasonably well with the slopping feet of the stand (feet) for my Sony television, except the raised sound bar blocked the signal from the television remote. Otherwise, the sound bar feet worked well. The sound bar was still low enough not to block viewing of the television. The feet also have slots to facilitate hanging the bar should you wish to hang the sound bar from a wall or television stand. With my stand (feet) mounted Sony television, placing the sound bar on its feet in front of the television blocks the signal from the remote. I use the sound bar without the feet. [ R. Gerard Jan 07, 2015 ]
The sound bar design is to sit flat, as shown in the picture, on small (less than ? inch tall) rubber feet or hang from a verticle surface using small brackets. My bar rests on its feet on the cabinet that holds the DVR and etcetera. [ Pat Jan 07, 2015 ]
There are two threaded "holes" where feet could be inserted, but no feet came with the sound bar. [ Jean Jan 07, 2015 ]
There are no "feet" provided with this sound bar. However, it would be quite easy to fashion feet of any desired height out of hard rubber, wood or almost anything solid and epoxy them to the bottom; or even use the screws provided for the wall mount brackets to fasten the home-made "feet " to the bar. Be careful the bar doesn't block the TV sensor which is usually in the bottom of the screen. [ Robert Jan 07, 2015 ]
Thanks Ronald. [ Jami Jan 07, 2015 ]
I don't really understand your question. However, before I mounted mine under my TV, I had to lay it flat on our entertainment center. I believe it has rubber tabs on it so it shouldn't move around. Hope this helps! [ Kelly Jan 07, 2015 ]
The Sony HT-CT770 sound bar does not have feet. It sits on the table in front of tv stand. Performs perfectly. [ RONALD Jan 07, 2015 ]

Sorry I don't have Direct TV. I have Cable TV and I do not use the Cable furnished Remote. I use the Sony Remote for selecting the sound level and base level. Also use it for selecting the sound preferences and HDMI/TV channel. I'm not sure if all this can be accomplished with a Direct TV Remote. [ thomas Dec 01, 2014 ]
NO...I USE DIRECTV FOR CHANNEL SELECTION ONLY...SONY REMOTE VERY USEFUL FOR MANY AUDIO FUNCTIONS...ENJOY THE HT-CT770...I CERTAINLY HAVE CHEERS DOUG S. [ DOUGLAS M Dec 01, 2014 ]
soundbar remote. [ doyle Dec 01, 2014 ]
thank you adam [ charles Nov 30, 2014 ]
thanks robert [ charles Nov 30, 2014 ]
thanks pat [ charles Nov 30, 2014 ]
well I cannot be precisely accurate with regards to your question as I do not have DIRECTV. however, what I can say is that I have a sony tv with this sound bar and I use my TV remote to control the sound bar power as well as the volume. My TV is approximately 4 years old and I did not have to do anything with my tv remote in order to have it control the sound bar. My TV remote controlled the sound bar right out of the box. As with many other remotes and devices, you may have to get the codes for the remote in order for it to control the sound bar [ Adam Nov 30, 2014 ]
Charles, I have Comcast cable rather than Direct and the Comcast controller will operate the amplifier volume of my Sony CT 770 sound bar so I believe the Direct TV controller would also. [ Robert Nov 30, 2014 ]
Set your TV to external speackers and use your TV remote. If you have more than one HDMI input to the TV, you can use a universal remote such as the Logitech Harmony series. [ Pat Nov 30, 2014 ]
Yes, you can use the DirecTV remote for the soundbar. [ Kelly Nov 30, 2014 ]
