Engadget Summary

The Sony HT-CT260 soundbar has an eye-catching design accompanied by an ear-pleasing sound. Gizmodo says the hexagonal design of the soundbar "will look sharp in a modern home, and could blend in anywhere." But the appeal of this soundbar isn't only in the design, as it's also capable of pumping out some decent sound, with CNET thinking it "sounded quite nice" and that "action movies had good impact." PC Mag had a similar experience, saying the subwoofer helps give "a nice sense of impact." While Gizmodo was impressed overall with the soundbar, they did find an issue with the subwoofer calling it "loose and boomy, but also punchy in a bad way."
