Best Featured Soundbar Under $300

Sony HTCT260H Soundbar

Although we prefer the sound (and the simpler remote control) of the Vizio S4221w-C4, the Sony HT-CT260 also sounds very good, just not quite as robust and powerful. CNet loved the HT-CT260’s combination of sound quality and features, and gave it an Editor’s Choice award.

What’s the HT-CT260 got that the Vizio doesn’t? The new CT-260H version adds an HDMI input. The HT-CT260 also has an infrared repeater in back. The advantage of this feature is that it assures the soundbar won’t block operation of your TV’s infrared remote control, as can be the case with the S4221w-C4. The HT-CT260 picks up these signals from your TV remote and sends them out again through a flasher on the back of the soundbar.

Whether you prefer the Vizio S4221w-C4’s simpler look or the Sony HT-CT260H’s flashy hexagonal design is, of course, something you’ll have to decide for yourself.
