Let say this again..
There's no need to buy a sound bar from the same brand as your TV. Get the one with the best sound and features that suits your needs..

Any Recommendations?

Hi everyone,
Can help suggest/recommend the best sound bar with similar or better features than Sony CT800 for around same price (around $600)? Using with my 55 inch LG SJ850T.
Requirements:
- Wireless Subwoofer
- HDMI input
- Spotify Connect (If not, then have option to connect Chromecast Audio by optical cable, while using HDMI to connect to TV)
- Wall mount preferable

No comment even just now I managed to listen to it.
Demo disc won't be able to judge unless I used 4K UHD disc.

This one is a 3.1 soundbar with option for the rear speaker.

Brief moment at Sony store 313 was wanting to buy Sony UBP-X700 there
but no stock.
That soundbar is hookup with X700 playing Atmos demo disc.

I haven't tried the M550.....

I auditioned the newer Sound+ range...the MS650 and MS750....
These soundbars are packaged without a sub (sub is optional).
I am blown away by the SQ and am impressed with its ability to play music rather well. Crystal clear sound with no audible muffling so far.

As I do not intend to have a sub due to space constraint....i think these are really really good bang for your buck!!!

Thanks for sharing. Not sure if i should just get 2.1 channel ones from other brands like sony or yamaha. Not sure how effective having the centre channel is. Guess i should go to the shops to test and compare.

Dear All,

Anyone owns a HT CT800 before? It is on promotion now and in paperwise it look impressive. However, i read from Amazon and some other website's user review that some of the unit break down after two months, i am concern about it. Please share with me whether it is worth to buy it? I was also looking at ysp 2700 but it is way above my budget. Thanks for your help.

My parents using Sony CT800 for their LG TV.
Wireless subwoofer
Many HDMI inputs (so LG TV remote can control volume/on/off Sony soundbar)
WIFI connection with Spotify Connect.
Now selling at Lazada from $590 to $649. Don't pay too much.
I think maybe prices dropping soon cos now trending lots of new single body soundbars(without subwoofer).

I usually check how low prices can go on Lazada before asking real shops to quote.
I just checked MS750 price on Lazada is $629 with 1yr S'pore warranty and free delivery
