Great unit with a few bugs.

Sony Blu Ray Home Theater system

I purchased this unit to enhance my new 42" HDTV. The BDV-E580 was easy to hook-up, set-up, calibrate, and use. The sound is very good for it's price range. I especially liked the various Internet options bundled with the unit.

Excellent Internet bundle (Netflix, Amazon, etc.)

Almost Excellent


This is a great Blu Ray player, decent stereo receiver, and an excellent way to combine all the functions of a home theater and content streaming service in one, compact package. It's a decent device for the price. Sony still has yet to realize the...

Great sound, access to streaming

Won't stream from Sony Tablet S as advertised

Good product


This is my first surround system, and it works great with our Sony LED TV. The sound is very good, the set up was pretty easy, and Blu-Ray movies look outstanding. The remote is not so great, looks and feels cheap, and the wires for the rear speakers...
