Sony HT-SS360

 

Home-theater-in-a-box systems have been around forever, but the latest marketing angle is the "Blu-ray ready HTIB." The new phrase simply means that the system consists of a surround-sound-speaker system and an AV receiver, so you only need to add a...

Blu-ray-ready 5.1 home theater system; three HDMI inputs; three digital audio inputs; three stereo analog audio inputs; automatic speaker calibration; satisfying sound on movies

Doesn't handle music well; no analog video connections; no onscreen display; iPod dock isn't included

The Sony HT-SS360 is an inexpensive home theater system with generous HDMI connectivity and satisfying sound on movies, but don't expect it to deliver with music.

The sound from this system is awesome.

 

The HT-SS360 system provides a great sound presence to help enhance any 5.1 video. The addition of a Sony BluRay/DVD player enables the Bravia capability which makes use of the system all but transparent and greatly enhances enjoyment. The presence of...

Instructions easy to follow. Calibration of speakers disclosed a loose connection. It seems to be quite a bit better than some of the highly touted B#$E systems. The Bravia interconnect makes use a pleasure

Presence of wires to connect speakers

Great Product!

 

If the lack of 3D video signal pass-through doesn't bother you, you can't go wrong with this system (unless you are buying it only for music, in which case, this might not be your best bet). The review nails it pretty well.

Produces excellent sound (for movies), excellent value overall

Beware - this receiver does not support 3D video signal pass-through, so you'll have to run everything with 3D video output through the TV first

Great value, for the money.

 

Very nice system for the money. If you're expanding from TV speakers to home theater, you will be blown away by the sound difference. Does it compare to high-end home systems costing $1,000 more?...I don't know because I won't spend that kind of money...
