Sony BDV-E3100 review

  (Rating Hidden)

While some home cinema systems are designed to be heard, not seen, the Sony BDV-E3100 goes all out for style by carrying its 'quartz' design across all five speakers, the amplifier and Blu-ray player unit and even the subwoofer. It's a good-looking...

Consumer review (newegg.com)

It works good, interfaces with my Sony TV

 

Works good as long as you don't push it.

Works as advertised (more or less).

kicks out at high volumes or with some movies with HEAVY low base sound. A kick out requires a full shut down and re-boot TWICE. One would think the engineers at Sony would have had a simple auto reset like all older amplifiers. This is a STUPID error...

excellent sound quality talk about easy setup from the box to watching netflix was less than 20minutes

 

would recommend

well worth the price for the simplicity of the set up and for the crystal clear sound quality and this thing is loud

i over looked it not having wireless speakers however its not worth taking an egg off that.

Great Buy

 

I really like this system. The sound is good, I just wish i could adjust the Treble and Bass settings. Not sure if there is a way, but I have looked around all of the settings and didn't see an option. But other than that, I like that fact that its set...

Looks Good, Sounds Good

No Treble or Bass Settings

Great system. But needs some work in the manual..

 

This is my second Sony Theater System. And I love it. I have only had it a week. And happy with Quality vs. Price. Can't compare it to a high-end unit that is separate components but for $300 it is just what my family needs. As I noted though, the...

Sound problems

 

I tried two BDV-E3100. The first one I brought home had 2 problems. One was it would get stuck on maximum volume when you were adjusting the volume. The other was it would get in a mode where it'd alternate between sound and being muted. It could only...

Very nice system, But... BEWARE!!

 

Awesome system (The only reason it got 4 stars)...UNTIL YOU ATTEMPT TO ADJUST THE 5.1 SURROUND SOUND!! Unless you have a Sony Bravia TV connected to this system there is NO WAY TO ADJUST THE SOUND AT ALL!! Without the ability to adjust the speakers...

Consumer review (walmart.com)

I got this for free so of course I love it.

 

It came as a service/safety award from my employer. I installed it in my daughters tv room and can't believe the quality and features. Surely worth $400. Set up was fast and easy and navigating the menu was also a breeze. LOVE IT!
