Great surround sound system especially for the price ; Very evenly balanced sound with better than average FM reception

Only complaint is that they dont offer wireless speaker's with this brand

Where affordability and quality peak


It took me a while to figure out but in the beginning, the sound wouldn't work on the sound system when I was trying to play my PS3. I solved the problem by connecting an optical cable from the sound system to the TV, not from the PS3 to the TV or PS3...

I bought this sound system to accompany the Sony TV I just got, and as promised, it's very user friendly. I just plugged it in and it was pretty much ready to go. I'm an audiophile and I must say that I'm very pleased with the sound quality. The...

It says iPod compatible but it is very limited to which models it can play. My iPod Video doesn't work on it. Check the table on this website for compatibility (replace the first "k" with a "c" - newegg thinks krutchfield with a "c" is a baaaaaad word)...

Good for the money.


If you are looking for a machine that will multi-task, do some light gaming, watch movies (I would recommend headphones), or simply just browse, this is a perfect machine.

Good sound. Has been a solid unit. No issues as of now. Good system for the $200.00

Rear surround speaker wire isnt long enough. Subwoofer vibrates the wooden box its in on low frequencies. Only two sound settings > Movie or Music, then there is Auto but that just chooses whats best

Wire connectors


You can find an adequate replacement inner connector

It does what it's supposed to

The wires are too short to the speakers and comes with connectors that you cannot purchase from sony

Great !!!


Deffinaltly would recommend this system to anyone who has a shred of commen sence in there brain... Seriously people ! Lol

Sound quality is super fantastic ! The system has very little noise when running easy to setup and a unbelivebe price for the system ! I went to and it. Was like 600 !! Get it here newegg rocks

No EQ it has a calibration mic though and diff sound modes but I still wanted to tweak it so that I could make it the way I want it. But o well it's still a rad system

I spent $190 on this system at a local retailer, but it's easily worth the listing price! No longer do I have to constantly adjust and tweak my stereo, speakers, headphones, I just have to go back to my Sony. Oh yea, 1000 Watts.... XD

Wow! I got this system today and hooked it up in fifteen minutes. Powered it up and instantly this Sony impressed me. Speakers give clear mids and highs and the sub pumps out thumping bass that satisfies the bass enthusiasts out there. I don't have a...

My room looks like an expanse of black spider web with the wires running to the speakers, but the sound quality is worth it

Great product.


Setup was easy, you don't have to be super tech savy to look at a color-coded diagram. Would def recommend getting a high quality HDMI and Toslink cable for this to hook into your NextGen gaming platform and from the receiver into your TV in order to...

Receiver has multiple connections for flexibility. Speakers and sub provide excellent sound and are compact. Although I would prob not recommend this setup for a large room, my living room is 15'-35' in my apartment, and these speakers fill the place...

None at the moment. This system fits my needs and my price range. Not a great system for the money, A GREAT SYSTEM PERIOD

Thats about it..

Got this system elsewhere because of local pickup, price was the same ; Overall sound quality is impressive. We have a smaller place so didnt need alot, and was just looking for a pass throough for our TV & WD HD Media player. This fit the bill perfect...

No DivX Ultra or MKV playback, no iPod dock, no wireless rear speakers

I bought this system for several reasons 1) It was Sony and Sony is a great company with great products 2) I am a college student so i dont have a lot of money so when Newegg made it $199 i had to buy it 3) the sound quality that comes out of these...

i would have liked it if they recommended some wall mounts for these but other than that no cons with the actual system itself
