Sony BDV-E880


Sony's Blu-ray system is packed with features but flawed sound quality lets the side down

Stylish looks ; Excellent picture performance ; Generous connections

Boomy subwoofer ; Fatiguing high frequencies ; No built-in Wi-Fi ; Plasticky build quality in places

The subwoofer is much better. It’s a squat cuboid shape, with four short legs giving the downward-firing driver and port underneath a bit of airspace. It’s a helpfully compact size and the neutral styling helps it blend discreetly into the room.

Sony BDV-E880 review


Supports high-def movie streaming but sound is disorganised

Good picture ; excellent streaming services, including HD films ; easy to set-up

Disorganised sound is a considerable disappointment ; no wi-fi as standard

A fair effort, but the smaller BDV-E380 is the superior Sony, while the Panasonic SC-BTT775 is considerably better balanced

Style towers over sonic substanceMark Craven tries out a Sony home theatre system that looks the business.

Stylish design; solid video performance; packed with features

Audio performance lacks weight; not the easiest system to get to grips with

Undoubtedly a slick looking home cinema system, but up are the sonics up to scratch?

Superb looks, picture and online services are let down by confused sound

Sony BDV-E880


The sound is extremely good and clear

Iplayer breaks Al the time needing the user to do a full system factory reset and it gets quite annoying having to setup the audio mic each time the Internet tv messed up

This is one awsome stuff w.r.t both sound and video quality. The only concern is that it doesnt deliver sound upto the mark, if audio has been recorded in low bitrate. Something that I liked the most is that it has so many INPUT connections available...

Great Home Theatre System


The best feature of the home theatre system is auto calibration. After installing it I just performed auto calibration and the system optimized itself for great quality 3D sound. Watched Avatar with full HD and 5.1 Channel surround sound and enjoyed...
