Your TV Deserves Better 

Want to get more out of your TV? Tired of listening to your laptop’s tinny loudspeakers? Ready for that high-fidelity audio experience? Our Sony HT-XT2 Sound Base with Wifi and Bluetooth has just what you need. It’s versatile, compact, and a perfect compliment to your television. It's time to fill your living room with rich, deep, professional-quality Sony sound. 

An All-in-One Box 

Designed to fit in front of your TV without blocking the screen or interfering with IR receivers, the HT-XT2 boasts a slim, flat finish. Boasting a built-in subwoofer, this little beauty fits right on top of any entertainment stand, snugly between your flatscreen and its pedestal. Only a Sony soundbase can fit this much sound into such a compact unit! 

Experience Dolby® Surround Sound 

With six specially tuned speakers -- two top-firing tweeters, two front-firing tweeters, and two front-firing midranges -- in dedicated enclosures flanking its central HDMI display, the HT-XT2 belts out rich, deep Dolby surround sound. Admire this speaker’s detail -- your favorite TV shows will never sound the same again. Augmenting this is the dedicated deep-bass wireless subwoofer: pair with a Sony TV, and any room can become a home theater. 

DVDs in HD 

Digital audio -- like CDs, MP3s, and even Blu-Ray -- loses a lot of clarity in the translation to digital 1’s and 0’s. Experience incredible sound restoration with Sony’s incredible Digital Sound Enhancement Engine (DSEE) technology, returning missing highs and lows to the audio stream. And with a dedicated HDCP2.2-compatible HDMI port, your HT-XT2 is completely 4K ready for Ultra HD technology. 

Wireless Control Center 

Use the HT-XT2’s Bluetooth to its fullest extent by connecting all of your other compatible Sony speakers to it. And with its built-in SongPAL Link app connectivity, easily connect this sound base with every other speaker in your house. Enjoy the sensation of your music following you from room to room. 

Better Bluetooth = Better Sound 

Simplify your Bluetooth experience with the HT-XT2’s built-in Near-Field Connectivity (NFC) enablement. Just tap your device’s NFC logo to the sound base’s, and enjoy rich, clear wireless streaming as built-in software prevents signal loss. The Bluetooth feed goes the other way, too. The HT-XT2 connects to your wireless headphones to listen to your audio without disturbing the peace late at night. Enjoy the true two-way wireless audio experience.  

Lossless Streaming 

Featuring Sony’s latest LDAC technology, the HT-XT2 has more streaming bandwidth than any other speaker brand on the market. Three times more, to be precise. With all that bandwidth, the stream doesn’t need to be compressed -- the sound coming out of your speakers has the same purity as the MP3’s and MP4’s you’re streaming from. 

With Google Cast, It’s Just Better 

This isn’t just a Bluetooth sound base, though! Enabled with Google Cast, experience the simplicity of music streaming without the clumsy Bluetooth handshake and the ability to take calls without interrupting your wireless stream. Just connect any device with the Google Cast app to it and go. 

Control, Simplified 

With its included remote, easily control your system from the comfort of your couch. Not only does it include basic functions like power, input, and volume control, but it also has Bluetooth playback and separate subwoofer volume controls. It also has separate controls for secondary audio systems and tone, among other things.
