Good Product but lot to improve.

  • Excerpt: Pros: Sound Quality is good but it doesn't produce enough sound for a 1000W system. Rear speake quality is also very good. Easy Set up. Cons: Rear speakers are not really wireless. I even called the customer support to enquire about the rear speakers before buying this product, they also said it is wireless. I will be more careful when I buy something from Sony next time.

Disappointed

  • Excerpt: My initial thoughts were very positive, Sound from Blu Ray and DVD awesome, but after several calls to my Cable company and Sony, Sony did confirm that this unit can not decode dolby 5.1 from external sources, ie. my Motorola Cable Box (DCX3510.) Sony did instruct me to get simulated surround sound, but it isn't the same thing. What a huge let down, why did Sony skimp on this?

  • Excerpt: struggling with this one. sounds great with dvd. however, not getting 5.1 sound from new samsung cable box, nor from the old scientific atlanta one through hdmi. spent hours on the phone with sony and cable company to no avail, and finally got optical audio cable instead to connect. sounds like 5.1 now, usually, but the display wont verify that, and the manual has a lot of weasel language about it. not convinced. sony - feel free to email me if you have a solution!

Like an oversized PS3!

B. P. Morrall "Buyer", Amazon
9 March 2013
  • Summary: After reading the reviews I took a long time thinking about buying this product as it is pretty expensive. Initially I was disappointed by how the base unit looks. It looks like an old PS3 that has been flattened and stretched. Just why it needs to be this wide is beyond me - it doesn't fit in my old style video cabinet. I have had to place it on top where all the little dirty fingers can access it. It shows up greasy finger prints very nicely...

Great until it failed

Roger G. Williams "Roganddi", Amazon
25 February 2013
  • Summary: The whole thing looks good, has a nice solid feel to it &, contrary to expectations planted by retailers, the wireless rear speakers are great. The subwoofer is a bit bigger than I would have liked but performed well. I'm afraid the Sony internet content is disappointing & really not worth the effort - though I have since discovered that the UI with this kit is better than you get via the Sony STRDN1030.

Underwhelmed

Robert Macrae, Amazon
24 December 2012
  • Summary: Easy to install, and capable of very high volumes. However on DVDs it does not improve sound quality as much as I'd hoped compared to the TV speakers.

Misleading information

Niveketak, Amazon
23 December 2012
  • Summary: As everyone else seems to be saying, when it is set up, the sound quality is very good. However, I bought the system for one reason alone and that was that the rear speakers are wireless. Imagine my surprise when I find the system I bought doesn't have any rear speakers, you have to buy those separately, something that is not stated anywhere.

Guter Sound - Mangelhafte Firmware

Johannes Boost, Amazon
5 April 2014
  • Summary: Die INstallation stellte für mich kein Problem dar. Auspacken, Teile an Zielort aufstellen, Kabel legen, zusammenstecken, fertig. Ein Handbuch braucht man hierfür eigentlich nicht. Über die Kabellänger kann ich mich nicht beklagen, habe die Anlage und den Sourround-Receiver jeweils zwischen den Boxen stehen. Nur die Stromkabel selbst sind etwas kurz geraten. Vom Sound her bin ich absolut zufrieden. Dolby Digital 5.1 oder DTS wird vernünftig wiedergegeben.

Ton super, optisch toll

Huber Sepp, Amazon
12 October 2013
  • Summary: Gute anlage, absolut preiswert. Besonders gut: Mitgeliefertes Kalibriermikrofon zum automatischen Einrichten der Boxen. sowie die hinteren Boxen die auch über funk an den Player angeschlossen werden können. Nur beim wiedergeben des tons von fernseher und anlage gleichzeitig überschlägt sich der ton.

J. Denzler, Amazon

  • Summary: Nach Update sollte ein Internetradio integriert sein . Nach Info von Sony ist das nicht vorgesehen stand aber so bei Amazon kann ja mal so sein . Ich habe es zurückgegeben und keinen Verlust gehabt also alles ok .
