My father can hear the TV again,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Sony 2.1 Channel HT-CT60 Virtual Surround Sound Bar and Subwoofer for TV (Electronics)
Following a stroke my father's hearing deteriorated and he was experiencing difficulty in watching TV.
He bought a new flat screen TV but although marginally improved difficulties still remained. The 'deaf society' loaned him a device that enabled him to wear a pick up hearing aid but he found this uncomfortable and meant he could not join in with other conversations.
Purely by accident I learned that flat screen TV's produce the sound from the rear which then reflect back from the wall into the room. Having installed this sound bar, he has been amazed at the much improved sound due to the outward facing sound. He can hear so much better what is being said on the TV and has not stopped singing its praises since it was installed at Christmas.
His only criticism is that it does not have a any means of visually seeing how high the sound is, but that's a small price to pay for such an excellent product.
