Caution in buying

 

Bought this to match my recently purchased Sony 32" BRAVIA. Found out that the speaker wire length would not allow me to put the speakers where I wanted to, because the wire ends are sealed on the speaker end and the opposite end has a SONY proprietory...

Easy to set up

Speaker wire too short with no way to make longer

Unbelievable surround sound system!

 

I have absolutely no complaints about this system. Everything is perfect about it. It does everything equally well whether its watching a movie, listening to music from the ipod, playing a game on my xbox 360, or just watching TV. It all sounds GREAT!

Clear, powerful, room-rumbling sound

None

Consumer review by: Summerlin (sony.com)

Don't buy if your room is pre-wired for speakers

 

All the speakers on this are hardwired (wires come out of the speaker itself) so you will have to splice and dice in order utlize any pre-wiring in your house. I always worry that there will be signal loss with splicing (and we'd have to splice twice...

Wifi, easy setup

Hardwired speakers, no HDMI in (switching between DVD and TV is a pain)
