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.

Great value


I had an older surround sound system that only did surround sound sometimes and was pretty poor quality. This system performs beyond my expectations. The system comes with a Microphone used to auto-configure the speakers for your room and it works...

Good overall system


The base is pretty powerful when watching blu-ray movies, which is pretty great but have kids so had to turn it way down. It doesn't come through with music, but movies definitely bring out the best of this system.

Very easy to use and setup. Awesome sounding system for surround sound and good enough for music. This is my first surround setup and I was looking for something pretty good at a decent price point. I've been impressed with it and find it very easy to...

I wish the remote could be setup for multiple devices; it will only do so for Sony systems. I now have at least two to use and usually 3 in order to watch a movie or other device. Not a huge issue but my wife has a hard time figuring it all out and I...

Fantastic System


Got this system to replace an old Insignia system and WOW what an upgrade!! While the speaker connections to the receiver are a special type of connector, the connections to the speakers themselves are your typical black and red. Anyone with a lil tech...

This system is fantastic!! The sound is nothing to complain about, you just need to have it calibrated correctly. The only system I could find with 3 HDMI inputs, which was a must for me as I have a blu-ray play, XBOX 360, and my cable box. The design...

SONY HT-SS360 5.1-Channel Home Theater System


SPL junkies may not be impressed, however plenty of volume for most medium size to small rooms. The receiver has a low profile, however the total footprint area was larger than i expected.

Quality construction, nice balanced sounding system, highly configurable

Great Little System


No regret whatsoever. I did several days research before buying my HTIB, and I am very satisfied with this one. The features, ease of use, and sound quality are great.

Easy setup ; The small speakers really deliver and are easy to mount ; The three HDMI inputs were perfect for my needs and easier than having to use multiple wires for my devices

I expected the speakers to be a little bigger, but honestly, they do a great job for their size ; I used the Auto-Calibration feature and wasn't impressed with how it performed. I manually re-calibrated everything to my liking ; Not enough to deduct an...
