Sony BDV-L800


looks fantastic playing music is a fantastic sound blu ray picture is fantastic easy to set up and update loads of features and inputs. its a very good tv speaker upgrade which is a defo buy with any flat panel tv. overall very happy with this purchase...

if you want a 5.1 surround sound buy a 5.1 system not sure on the difference between this model and the L600 in the terms of cost and sound quality, and if this model is the better option.
