HT-CT380 Features:

2.1 channel system brings out the best in your movies

  • Feel the full force of every movie soundtrack with this 2.1 channel sound bar. The two drivers have been carefully engineered to deliver a balanced audio response across all frequencies, while a wireless subwoofer adds more body to your bass – so every explosion and action sequence hits harder than ever before.

Dolby TrueHD for cinematic surround sound

  • Listen to HD movies in clear, high-fidelity surround sound. Dolby TrueHD has been specifically engineered to deliver lossless sound across movies and music. By enabling bit-rate efficiencies and reproducing near studio-quality sound, Dolby TrueHD is able to deliver unparalleled audio fidelity for Blu-ray Discs and downloaded content.

DTS-HD for studio master precision

  • Enjoy precise, detailed home audio. With DTS-HD Master Audio, you’ll enjoy the original, uncompressed soundtracks on your favourite Blu-ray Discs and streamed movies — just as the director intended. DTS-HD High-Resolution Audio also offers intensely detailed reproduction for musical performances, allowing every note to shine with near studio-like quality.

Cinematic S-Force PRO Front Surround

  • An immersive virtual surround sound experience. S-Force PRO Front Surround mimics the way the brain correlates sound sources to create proper volume, time lag, and sound wave spectrum – using only left and right speaker channels. By naturally emulating three-dimensional sound fields, you’ll be able to enjoy rich, high-fidelity audio across a wider listening area.

S-Master digital amplifier: true sonic purity

  • Enjoy the best of digital audio with the S-Master digital amplifier. Using a simplified, full digital signal path, the S-Master amplifier reproduces digital audio signals without the multiple analogue stages required by conventional amplifiers. The result is not just more power, but significantly less distortion from heat build-up.

ClearAudio+ enriches your music

  • Unique to Sony, ClearAudio+ automatically adjusts sound settings for an enriching listening experience. By bringing together expertise in digital signal processing technologies, ClearAudio+ is able to optimise audio formats to deliver a consistently clear, high-quality sound – whatever music you’re into.

Ultra-slim design for minimum intrusion

  • The ultra-slim premium finish is designed to fit simply in front of the TV without blocking the screen or interfering with IR receivers. Its sleek profile also lends itself well to various wall mounting options. It measures 90cm (35.5”) width x 5.1cm (2”) height x 11.7mm (4.6”) depth. The subwoofer is wireless and compact, giving you more flexibility when space is at a premium.

NFC One-touch for instant connectivity

  • Near Field Communication (NFC) technology makes complex connection set-up sequences a thing of the past. Simply touch selected NFC-enabled devices to the on-body N-mark for a quick, seamless connection, then start streaming content via Bluetooth. No NFC? No problem. You can still manually connect to Bluetooth using your device’s settings menu.

Wireless streaming with Bluetooth

  • Wirelessly stream your favourite tracks and apps with Bluetooth. Pair your smartphone or tablet with this Bluetooth-enabled sound bar and you can enjoy your music and even control the playlists and volume right from your device.

Unite your music with SongPal

  • Download SongPal for your smartphone or tablet, and take control of your music collection. Simply connect over Bluetooth and you’ll have seamless access to all your favourite tracks, whether they are stored on your phone or via your favourite online music app.

Multiple HDMI ports for simple connectivity

  • With three HDMI inputs and one HDMI output you can connect an Internet TV box, Blu-ray Disc player, games console, and more. You can enjoy all your Home Cinema in one place, without the need for a separate receiver.

Simplify your sound setup with HDMI ARC

  • The HDMI ARC (Audio Return Channel) means audio is also carried back to your sound bar from compatible TVs, without the need for an extra audio cable. Every device connected to your TV can now be heard through the sound bar, so you can hear all of your audio in high quality.
