Sony BDV-E880 review


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

This Sony home theatre system looks the business, but can it cut the audio mustard?

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.

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...

poorly designed HTS


I was quite tempted by this HTS, and purchased it on a sale for [price]. The audio/video quality is good. However the HTS is severely lacking in features. Interface is poorly designed, and lack of inbuilt wifi makes it worse (USB dongle that comes...
