I thought this was kind of an interesting soundbar shoot-out artical, make sure a go to the link inside the artical for a more in-depth read on their findings.
The Sony RHT-S10 beat the YSP-900 in this review,,, as a big fan of the YSP's it makes me wonder if I should go to the Sony store and give a listen to it,,,, or makes me wonder if the reviewer was paid by Sony.
Thompson heard some noise from behind - not a lot, but more than from the other models.
This is what I've been trying to tell people for so long, I too hear rear effects just not a WHOLE lot or very loud. It works and I think it depends on the size of the room and if you have very good ears as well.
@Davyo: Great article by the way, glad I purchased the Sony CT100. It's also THE ONLY RHT-S10 review EVER! I wish I had a Store that housed the unit so I could hear for myself. Rault has mentioned the RHT-S10 sounded better than our CT100's, hmmmm....
