Sony BDV-L600

 

Fantastic features and a really good sound

A bit fiddly to set up, the instructions are not clear. It worked better once I routed all the various HDMI sources to the TV and then the audio output from the TV to the Sony via an optic cable. It was easy to connect an Ethernet bridge to pick up my...

Quality of sound from a 2:1 system.

Louder than expected background noise from the unit. I/F not as easy as I am use to with Apple devices.

Plenty of features and relatively easy to use. Smart looking. Good value.

Silver bases to the speakers - should have been black. Sony have developed this annoying principle of not providing a hard copy User Manual - why not make it optional and pick one up f.o.c. from a Sony Centre if you want one?

Sony BDV-L600

 

Sounds very nice, always use it when watching a film Has lots of features not ven explored yet due to complexity of various options

Too complex to use straight out of box for more than listening to films etc. The amount of buttons you have to press to get anything other than basic sound is too much. Still getting used to the buttons and options on the remote, very frustrating when...

Makes sound quality match HD picture of Bravia TV. Standard TV sound was lacking especially noticeable after 'old tv' with nicam stereo sound built in.

Found placing main control unit difficult as it couldn't go under TV as Blueray disc inserts into right hand side ie side loading as opposed to DVD front loading. Removed all stand bracketry & it now sits flat in front of TV.
