Just as I wanted. Both the seller and Ebay were great to work with.

Summary: First viewed and listened to this system at my brother-in-law's home. Set out to find one for myself. Found on Ebay at a reasonable price for a used system. Total experience was just as I hoped it would be.
Summary: I have a difficult time understanding how anyone could rate this system anything but 4 or 5 stars. Seriously, if they did they must have gotten a lemon. I received this system a couple of weeks ago and waited to set it up till we moved into our new home which we did this morning.
Summary: Speakers look like toys and when you first look at them you will definitely think over and over if you have done the right thing. We live in a town house(row house) so can't put in a real heavy sounding giant. Picked this and it is the perfect fit for my house.
Summary: Overall, very pleased with the results I've received from such tiny size product; however, it turns into a powerful "phenomenon" the minute I press that power button on my remote. I have it hooked to a Sharp 42" 1080P and PS3.
Summary: The small speakers give out pleanty of great sound for a modest (12 X 16) open concept family room. The clarity of sound output for network programs (i.e. CSI) broadcast in 5.1 adds clear dimention to the experience.
Summary: Got this system from J&R for sub $300. This system is truely awesome, regardless of price. Sony hit a homerun with this unit, crystal clear sound, nice bumpin bass, super small speakers, they amaze my friends with comments like "theyre smaller than bose" and "wheres the sound coming from".
Summary: We'll get the bad out of the way first...You have all read already about the terrible location of the display screen. Heres a little note to sony, "What the hell were your designers thinking". I know in Japan space is limited, maybe there they are so close to the system you can see the screen.
Summary: This sony system is just what our living room needed. My wife and I were going for a minimalistic look. The fact that the micro speakers are sooooooo small allows you to place them anywhere to give the illusion that you dont have a surround sound system but when you turn it on there is no mistaking...
Summary: I was looking for an unexpensive, small 5.1 system for my 1 bedroom apartment. The main purpose would be to use with my PS3 system (gaming, watching movies, listening to my mp3s). I didn't want something really loud, but I needed multiple hdmi and digital inputs.
Summary: I recently purchased this system, as well as the WAHT SA10 wireless rear hub and the EZW T100 transmitter, and I tell you small speakers or not, this sounds nice. I've had no problems with the rears being out of sync ( using wireless ) and this system pumps out a very clean sound for PS3 Blu Ray...
