I was catching up on Engadget.com this morning and saw this:
Sony prices and dates its 2013 home and shelf audio lineups


June release date at $399


All it says is:

A Soundbar to Bring Boom to Any Room


Designed to bring the TV experience back to life, the HT-CT660 Soundbar is a 330 Watt system producing exceptional audio marked by rich, natural sounds and incredible clarity. The 2-way, 4-driver mica reinforced speaker system delivers exceptional sound clarity with detailed highs and lows, with big sound and minimal distortion, all complemented by a wireless subwoofer that brings feeling back to the low end, along with an added convenience of being able to be placed anywhere in the room. The three HDMI inputs allow easy connection to up to three devices, such as gaming consoles, Blu-ray Disc players and cable or satellite boxes, while delivering superior high-definition picture and sound quality. Movies are presented as directors intended, with Dolby® TrueHD and dts® HD Master Audio modes the reproduce high definition sound for uncompromised quality.


Adding to the soundbar's arsenal, Sony's S-Force® PRO Front Surround 3D technology synchronizes sounds to match the motion and depth of images on screen so viewers enjoy a fully immersive, simulated 3D surround experience without the bother and clutter of surround sound speakers.


Connecting the HT-CT660 soundbar with mobile devices such as phones and tablets to stream music is as simple as one touch of any Near-Field Communication (NFC) or Bluetooth enabled device. And with Bluetooth standby mode, you can start streaming and enjoying music without having to turn on any additional components.

I googled for more and searched the Sony website, but didn't find anything.


I have to run to work, but hopefully someone else can find more details................

The you tube video says its 46 inches long.Specs on sony says its only 40.5 inches long which measurment is correct?

I think it is 40.5" wide. It is made to match the width of 46" TVs.

I'm definitely interested in this guy as well. I wish it had 4 hdmi inputs but 3 will hopefully work for me using ARC, and the other hdmi input on my tv.

I bought the Sony CT660 this morning from Rakuten(buy.com) for $333.00 including shipping plus no taxes. Also Rakuten has a 45 day return policy. It has just begun to ship so I am looking forwad to getting it. I liked the Sony CT260 and it had great reviews. This is the upgraded model and offered more of what I wanted from a soundbar.


Here is one review I found.

Update: This speakers sound better than my neighbors $2,000 Bose! Deep Bass, clear voice, they are loud, tons of configurations, manual adjustments, Bluetooth is a snap to set up. It took 10 secs to pair my galaxy phone. You can control your phone with the control from the sound bar which is pretty neat. I have it hook with the optical cable.

Set up is easy. it took me more time drilling a couple of holes in the wall than anything else. Recommend! A+++

I went to the Sony store in my local mall and the salesman and the manager had no idea it was out until I told them.

Wow, that's a great deal. Did you have a coupon code or something? Because it seems the price is back up to retail.

Just checked and it is back to $399. When I bought one it was listed as 5,984 in the sales rank. Now it is sales ranked 234, so it is getting an big bump in the numbers of orders placed. It did not require a coupon. Keep an eye on it. If I see it go back down I will post on this site.

Thanks, I appreciate that. I put an Amazon price alert on as well just in case it goes down there.

Mine arrived from buy.com today the box was a little roughed up and once opened it was missing all of the feet for table top mounting. 2 different sets both missing. I'll hook up in the morning and post my thoughts tomorrow.

I just took measurements and the bar is really tall! It's almost 5" tall, and that would bring the top of it up to the bottom of my TV (which is just on the stand). So it would cover the bottom bezel of my plasma but probably not block the picture. I guess that's going to be a problem!

Per the below specs of the Sony CT660 this should not be a problem. Take a look and let us know if it is working.

IR Repeater Pass-thru

While glitzy product photos often show sound bars wall-mounted, most consumers place their sound bar on a TV stand, which can be problematic blocking the TV’s remote control sensor, forcing you to stand up and angle your remote to control your TV. With the Sound bar’s IR Repeater pass-thru, there’s no more standing up and trying to angle your TV remote just right to control the TV if your sound bar is in the way. The sound bar’s IR repeater allows other remote control commands to pass-through the front of the sound bar to the TV behind it, eliminating this problem. Therefore you can do less standing and more enjoying!
