Very good entry level system

 

I was a little leery to buy this based on some of the lower ratings and comments I've read. I've had mine now a few weeks and for the money, this is GREAT! For starters, to hook-up this system make sure you're using the optimal connections ie, HDMI and...

Easy set-up, 5 disk cd, good sound, iPod doc is great! and D.C.A.C. (Auto Calibration)

The display is a little hard to see from across the room and the remote is a little overly complicated

Terrible Speakers

 

I bought these speakers hoping they would sound great (being a Sony and all), but after i set it up and popped in a movie, the sound was garbled. I checked all the wires and everything was set up right. I called Sony and asked them for help and the...

Not much if any

Hard to set up, sound sounds garbled, short wires, crackles from time to time

great sound system

 

Excellent out of the box system that didn't take much expertise to set up. Sony did a great job with this one!

I liked several aspects ; 1. It has a 5 disc dvd/cd player ; 2. It is super simple to set up ; 3. The automatic self calibration mic was an amazing time saver ; 4. Excellent sound

Only a couple ; 1. Sony utilizes their own brand specific speaker wire plugs thus a problem if you loose a wire or break a clip ; 2. Took alot of playing to figure out how to get the audio from the TV, but found out just how simple it was

Surround Sound on the cheap

 

I got this bad boy for 200 bucks, which was a very good price. It's everything I wanted in a surround sound system and more. It even has rear speaker wireless compatibility so that in the future I can upgrade to wireless rears if I want. Pretty cool......

Very Very Very good sound. Those complaining about balancing don't know how to balance their own sound... too bad for you. Automatic setup is also a big pro as it adapts your speaker setup to any room perfectly, no matter where the speakers are setup....

Only one digital optical connection. Not a big deal though, I haven't seen any with more than one ever. And generally you can route everything through the t.v
