This device does not have a 3.5mm input anywhere on it, this was confirmed with a 35 minute phone call to SONY. The device will not play the supported media types (.avi .divx .xvid) as the instructions claim it is capable of playing, this was confirmed...

Website claims are false

Not Apple Compatible


This system is useless if you use any apple devices. There is a usb port, but it does not support an iphone. Unfortunately, I don't use DVDs anymore since the invention of apple tv so again this system is useless for me. Sony, if I am wrong, please...

does not support my electronics

Not what I thought it was.


I was thinking that it was have a better performance than what I am getting out of it. The volume only goes up to 33. I have to put in a smaller room now and get something else for my theatre, because it does not put out enough sound for anything...

Basic design

Not the volume nor performance I expected

wrong info listed


Be careful if you order this, it is not a 5 disc as advertised. It only takes 1 disc at a time.

Interfaces Well With TV, Good Remote, Clear Sound, Energy Efficient, Intuitive Controls, Easy To Setup

Way too quiet


The rear speakers basically serve no purpose, you need to put your ear right up to the speaker to get anything. I need to use it at top volume to get anything out of the unit. There just isn't enough power kicking out to be useful. The radio is pretty...

Cheap and build in DVD player

Way too quiet.

It is completely [censored word removed], thee sound is disgusting it doesn't even turn up until you get to around 25 volume. All I can say is what a waste of 180 buks!
