Stay away

 

Do yourself a favor and skip this.. Not worth the headache. Maybe check on a more direct website.

It looked new, and was packed nicely

DOA! Turns on, but shuts down right away. I have no idea how this could possibly get past any competent quality control check. Called for RMA, but the lady rudely told me to do it online because she was busy. Have to pay for return shipping, which is...

Great budget system

 

All in all unless you have a spare then buying an HDMI cable preferably one that is 6Ft is a must while getting this system as it does not come with one. If you are on a budget this is a great system at around the $280 pricetag not including the HDMI...

Easy to setup especially once you have the speakers placed where you want the auto calibration mic helps to adjust the system to provide the best decibel level from each speaker to provide an even sound around the room ; If you've used or own a PS3...

When you plug in two devices via HDMI cables to the two incoming ports there is an outgoing HDMI port to your TV but the system does not come with an HDMI port so you will have to buy one ; If you use the default video cable it will generate some...

Use a Quality HDMI Cable

 

I was having issues after the first few days with picture going out, breaking up, sound going out and coming back again. I thought it might be my cable box. I looked here to see if others had similar problems. I did find at least one review that...

Sound is great, easy setup

Don't recall if high speed HDMI cables recommended

Out of the box outstanding

Very pleased

 

This system surprised me in its full, rich surround sound. It was fairly easy to set up, provided even an FM tuner which they hardly mention in their writeup. I am totally pleased. Paul

Good Product but lot to improve.

 

Pros: Sound Quality is good but it doesn't produce enough sound for a 1000W system.

Easy set up, sound quality is good, sound from rear speakers are aslo crisp and clear

Rear speakers are not really wireless, The cord for rear speakers are not long enough, HDMI/optical cable not included

Consumer review by:

GREAT SYSTEM

 

Puchased Tues PM and received Fri AM - Easy setup with exception of not getting TV sound thru speakers. Had to get digital optical cable. DVDs, CDs especially super audio CDs sound very good. Worth the price!

Excellent sound, ease of use

Cannot decode 5.1 from cable box

What a piece of JUNK!!!

 

Physical setup is relatively easy and straight forward. The application interface is ugly and not very straight forward. After initial setup and connecting to my wifi network, the system would not download application updates. It said it was not able...

Unhelpful Customer Support

 

Out of the box, the unit caused continual screen flashing when connected with an HDMI input from a cable box. I tried it with a second HDTV in my house and had the exact same problem. Talked at length with Sony customer service, tried all kinds of...

Wireless rear speakers, good sound on Blu-Rays

Not able to support pass-thru from Cable box
