    Hi there!

    Since (at this moment) the Sony HT-XT3 soundbar does not support Wireless Soround, is there another way of connecting 2 more speakers that would transform it into a 5.1 system?

    Probably, the Wireless Soround technology would be the best, but so far Sony has not announced anything like this for the XT3 (the XT2 supports this new technology, but only after a firmware update; no news so far for the XT3).

    Thanks!

    I think it unlikely, as the XT3 is older than the XT2 and may not have the necessary hardware on-board. Why not ask Sony?

    I thought that the XT2 is older than XT3, not newer.

    I've asked also on the Sony support forum, I am waiting for an answer there, too.

    As I recall, the XT1, which I have, was followed by the XT3 then the XT2 and finally the XT100. I remember thinking that I'd wish that I'd waited for the XT3, rather than buy the XT1.

    Hi, after reading your comments am wondering how you got on and if you have yet managed to transform it into a 5.1 system using rear speakers?

    Unfortunately, I have found no solution. My only hope is that Sony will update HT-XT3 to support Wireless Soround.
