Sony BDV-E300


You trust Sony, so why not let them entertain you in up to 10 rooms with the BDV-E300 multiroom system?

With its latest home cinema offerings (which should drop this June), Sony takes a step ahead of the competition by going past great image and sound to offer a bunch of cool new features. Among the stellar features on the Sony BDV-E300 are Wi-Fi...

This home cinema setup could be the ideal way to upgrade your disc player and sound system at the same time.

Sony BDV-E300 review


A Blu-ray one-box system for £400? Really? Yep. And just look at that star-rating – we couldn't wait to get this one out of its packaging. The positive vibes start before you even turn the Sony BDV-E300 system on. The satellites are fairly nondescript,...

If you're after a system that does it all, all-round ability is more crucial than ever, and the Sony is the best all-rounder in its class

Sony BDV-E300


The Sony BDV-E300 is a Blu-ray home cinema system with 5.1 speakers and a total of 1000W audio power. It supports optional wireless rear speakers, meaning you can increase the surround setup to 7.1 channels. An Ethernet slot and USB port (for storage...

While the Sony BDV-E300 isn’t hugely impressive on the feature front, it hits its marks more than adequately when it comes to the nitty gritty of audiovisual performance. Factor in the easy setup and it makes for a truly solid all-round home cinema...

Sony BDV-E300


Blu-ray home theatre in a box solutions like Sony's BDV-E300 are reasonably priced and easy to setup. With HD video output and virtual 7.1 surround sound support the E300 is a very attractive home theatre option, especially if you are pairing it with a...

The Sony BDV-E300 is an altogether decent system. It offers an easy entry into the Blu-ray home theatre market for first time buyers, especially for consumers who already own a Sony Bravia TV. The DM port is a major frustration because it prevents you...

Just a home cinema with blu-ray, nothing special.


It's too high price just for home cinema with blu-ray player.

1. Using one remote control for TV and for cinema if the TV is Sony brand ; 2. Easy to install and connect all cables ; 3. Small speakers with great realistic sound ; 4. Modern design ; 5. Noiseless CD/DVD driver

1.It's impossible to use the rem.contr. for other TV brands ; 2.Ethernet interface is useless.It's impossible to play any network contents ; 3.Too less audio and video formats supported ; 4.Doesn't support MP3 format and lossless audio formats

Gives movies a new experience. Love it for music.


I went out and checked several systems including the Sony Ct100 and was a disappointed with most of the sounds. I was planning on buying a cheaper system but when we heard this at Walmart and compaired it to the lower end systems my wife said we should...

Great seperation and good sounds. My friend has the Bose system and my wife thinks is sound better than his system

If anything it might be a little light on the bass but you can enhance it as one of the settings

For the delivers


Little pricey at $475 (PC Richard on Long Island) and we did buy 4 stands for the front and surround speakers for an additional $100 total, so that made it more expensive. However, I suspect we would have bought the stands anyway!

Easy installation and set-up via on-sceen menu on a new Samsung LCD. Talk's to the TV via "anynet", i.e. put a disk in and the tv switches to the BD player and starts the movie

Nothing at all wrong with the system

EZW-T100 not included


false advertising. Nothing on says that EZW-T100 s-air cartridge must be purchased separately. calling sony customer care, they point to the manual to say it's not in the list of items. No way to tell that until you've bought it. BE...

Compact, looks nice. Color-coded setup

1. EZW-T100 is not included in package ; 2. You must use the speaker wire plugs to connect to the receiver, or splice in your own wire to the jack ; 3. Don't use HDMI control for TV in setup if non-Sony TV
