Price was going to be high due to many reasons.
New product; all company's jack up the price when it's first release.
The CT100 has 250watts of power and the sub had a screen that did showed the settings adjustments. Also, the sound bar (with only 1 center speaker and L & R speaker) fits under 37" TV's perfectly and the Sub is TALL but not THICK. The CT100 has only HDMI, optical, RCA Audio, and a coaxial ports. As for the CT500, it pumps out 400watts of power now and the sub not only has an ON-(TV)screen display but the sub still shows you what the settings are (ie that's why there is a black screen in the middle of the sub). The soundbar is also longer (with 2 CENTER speakers this time around with a L & R speaker) with it fitting under 47" TV's perfectly and sub may be shorter this time around but it is PUDGY (THICK). The CT500 also is going to have a broad back with composite inputs (audio AND video), HDMI, optical, RCA, and coaxial ports, more ports than the CT100.
Take into consideration that the CT500 is still the most Affordable soundbar that tons of options for it's consumers (no soundbar is this cheap with this many inputs!) and the only soundbar on the market with 5.1/7.1 LPCM uncompressed sound support. $500 may seem like alot but what you get with the CT500 should make it cost alot more, like Yamaha YSP prices more...
P.S. If you want, if the CT500 costs too much, alot of us will be selling our CT100's for the CT500 upgrade. Just check up on Ebay or Craigslist...
