Great Home Theater System


Purchased with a Sony LED-LCD 40EX710. Was able to purchase on sale from newegg so the product was a great buy. Have used almost on a daily basis and have not had any issues with the player or speaker. Newegg shipped the product quickly and safely to...

Easy set up ; Blu-ray quality is excellent ; Plays blu-ray and DVD flawlessly ; Customizable ; Apps/Features ; Free software updates with Sony

Sound quality falls just shy of being great ; Including even cheap wall mountings for speakers would have been a nice add to the package

Terrible unit


The unit has the most recent firmware, and it's connected to a 1080p Plasma. It does not appear that my experience is isolated. Stay away from this unit!


Sound quality is mediocre at best when it works. When you can get the unit to pick up on the optical audio input from the tv, it will work until you change the channel. If the channel does not have the same resolution as the last, it will lock the unit...

good system, but...


Wire streaming worked fine off NAS when it would read the file. USB streaming works fine too surprisingly as NAS/PC streaming are iffy at best. Wireless is kind of pointless streaming wise as it stutters on playback. Netflix works pretty well, as does...

Simple, out of the box worked as needed for very good 5.1 DTS HD sound from bluray, and connected cable box audio sounds like it should. Start up is fast enough, though not instant or anything. Menu's are ok to work with and controls thru it are fast...

DLNA support is questionable at best. Sometimes it works streaming media from my DLNA NAS device (Lacie 4TB NAS). Most of the time it hasn't work. I have mp3's, and mp4 audio that it has lately been playing. Updates may have fixed some of those issues....

Look Elsewhere


I ended up picking this up to replace my Sony DAV-HDX275 since this was on sale at Newegg. When comparing features both have the older DVD system is far superior, to the point I put it back in main room. The E570 is now sitting back in its box unused. ...

Audio quality seems as good as any other HTS ; Can stream online services such as Hulu and Netflix(with paid accounts) ; Speakers look sleek with standard Sony setup

Online streaming commonly buffers, making watching a show impossible. And no it isn't my internet connection, I've had 5 computers using the same service at once with no issue ; Menu system is slow to respond and has no customization options. Streaming...

Buy something else


Just sit down & use it." Or not. In 10 Seconds I had the Cable Box functions working fine. The TV, a Sony Bravia, also worked fine. Then I started trying to get the E570 to work. No Luck in the 1st 2 Hrs. I went to ESupport Chat. After much Polite...

Looks good, Sounds Good, Blu-Rays play great

My problems began when I selected a Sony Blu-Ray BDV-E570. It turns out there's a difference between the Blu-Ray PLAYER & the Bu-Ray Home THeater System as far as Remotes are concerned ; THe E570 is an HTS. The HTS doesn't seem to be compatible with...
