Don't let its size fool you. Behind the sleek, stylish façade lies a powerful speaker system capable of delivering an immersive, true movie theatre experience. The Sound Bar utilises speaker technology to minimise speaker vibrations and deliver sharp, high-resolution audio. And with the power of the 4.1 channel S-Force Pro Front Surround 3D technology and accompanying subwoofer at its core, you can breathe life into your favourite movies, games, and music. It comes with three HDMI ports, built-in one-touch listening via NFC, and Bluetooth functionality, too - so whatever you connect and however you connect it, you'll always be able to enjoy rich, high definition sound.
Designed with discretion in mind
You don't need a big, bulky audio system to deliver powerful true movie theatre sound. The HT-ST3 is the perfect combination of style and substance, so you'll certainly feel and hear its presence even when you can't see it. The Sound Bar's slimline design enables it to be discreetly mounted in any living space, so it won't pull focus while you're watching the latest blockbuster movie. The accompanying super-slim, compact subwoofer system has also been designed with flexible installation in mind: lay it horizontal for an easy fit into your TV unit or rack, or stand it upright for a freestanding floor-based subwoofer that can be positioned anywhere in your living room.
Immerse yourself in sound
Hear every whisper and creak. With 4.1 channel S-Force Pro Front Surround 3D technology and an enlarged subwoofer, the HT-ST3 creates a realistic, immersive soundtrack that's perfect for family entertainment. Sit back and enjoy your favourite movies and games with a wide range of sound that puts you right at the heart of the action.

Add depth to your audio

Throttle up the bass level and hear every booming explosion while watching films, or tighten the tone to keep pace with today's hottest, bass-driven music tracks - just flick a switch and you're in complete control. The slim design also makes this subwoofer particularly versatile, allowing it to be either discreetly placed flat on a shelf or stood on its side.
The power of HDMI
Consoles, televisions, music systems - your living room is the entertainment hub of your house, so why should high definition sound be restricted to the movies? With four HDMI ports built in to the HT-ST3, you'll always be able to get enjoy flawless, high-quality sound. Whether it's listening your music collection or hearing every boom, blast and tyre screech while gaming on your Playstation - if it has an HDMI connection, you're just a cable away from an incredible audio experience.

My short list consisted of this and the 770 , so I started to read every review that I could find on line.
Reviews on the ST3 are mixed to say the least and I almost bought a 770 until I saw that Amazon Germany are selling the ST3 for the equivalent of only £308.00 delivered , so I took the plunge and ordered one .
If you do the same ensure that you download the English manual on line and have a euro plug converter (to avoid invalidating the warranty by chopping off the two pin plug)
Five days later it arrived via Italy and Dunfermline !!
In my opinion the sound when adjusted correctly is excellent ,using it as an HDMI hub also makes things very straight forward , it even sounds pretty good via blue tooth from my Kindle and is very well made .
Highly recommended , especially if you save yourself a few pounds by buying from Germany.
I am a big fan of Sony products and I don't think that I have ever been let down by one and I doubt very much that this one will either.
Out of the box both the soundbar and the solidly built (and heavy) sub-woofer appear to be very well made, quality items.
I had to re-organise my entertainment centre to accommodate the sub-woofer but once that was done, everything was connected and I figured out the settings it has been plain sailing.
The sound is full, rich and vibrant without being overbearing or booming during the loud parts of films, which is exactly what you want a surround sound system to be. A fantastic product and I am delighted with it.
The subwoofer is big in size but then all the connections and amp is built into it. The sound bar itself is very thin and long and well made as the sub. The sub is connected via a lead, so not wireless but that don't bother me. I find the subwoofer more powerful than the HTGT1, and also than the other Sony models HTC-370 and HTC-770 as I tested then in other Sony retailers.
Trust me you can't go wrong if you want high quality loud sound then go for the HTST3!
Anyway, setup was pretty straightforward. To save space, I actually placed the bar on the top of my (40 inch) TV stand as it is so low that it doesn't interfere with the TV operation. Once both were in situ I connected them together with the ribbon cable that comes from the bar and splits into four ethernet-type connectors to plug into the colour coded ports on the sub. The optical cable was carefully connected between the TV and sub and once the batteries were in the skinny remote and rubber feet attached to the bar it was more or less job done. [ Note the sub has an HDMI ARC port (and 3 other HDMI-in ports) also which audiophiles may prefer to use instead of optical but I prefer to keep it simple with the latter ]. On the subject of the remote, it is a slim and boxy "designer" affair that although easy to use does not have a premium feel to it in my opinion.
Replacing my (excellent) Sony HT-CT260 soundbar, I was on familiar ground with the operation of this. After setting the TV to external speakers and selecting Optical on the sub it was game on. The LED display is discreetly hidden behind the mesh front and can be toggled on or off with one button push.Read more ›

Arrived on time, well packaged. Soundboard is very compact, slim and neat but the subwoofer is quite big and bulky. Sound not as good as expected from a Sony product. Read morePublished 13 months ago by Twill1965
