POOR SOUND QUALITY, TOUGH SETUP

John Mize, Amazon
18 December 2009
  • Summary: No offense to those who gave this system a favorable sound review, but you have to be deaf in one ear to miss the shortcomings with these tiny TINNY speakers. Look closely at all the pictures, the one that shows them almost as tall as the main unit is photo-shopped. These speakers are smaller than a golf ball and can only carry the upper frequencies of a tweeter.

Rear speakers still do not work!

IBALL, Amazon
20 September 2009
  • Summary: My sole complaint is that the rear speakers do not work. When the rear speakers would not pair, we got on the phone with Sony support. After a couple of hours it was determined that Sony would send us a signal boosting cable (sony part# EZW-EC10). I also bought a very expensive Monster HDMI cable to help. This fixed the pairing problem, but still no sound came from the rear speakers.

Surround

James D. Roberts "jd", Amazon

  • Summary: When I hooked this system to a new television- Sony brand - the rear speakers would not pair. I've given up! I've read all the reviews and tried foil on all the cables, have a shielded HDMI cable, turned off every freakin' wireless item in the house, and still no luck. Just don't know what to do. Maybe trying to return it, but it's been six months since I purchased. DON'T BUY THIS UNIT!

Not What'd I'd Expected

MikeD, Amazon
14 June 2009
  • Summary: I had an '02 Pioneer home theater that gave me great "surround sound", Sony's $700+ system is, so far, much inferior! Maybe I'm technically stupid? System set on Dolby Pro-Logic II, surround on and "auto-calibrated", DISH HD satellite set on Dolby. Regardless of the input, including Dolby re-mastered DVD's, don't really get a "surround" experience. BTW, the hoops Sony put me thru to get the correction to their HDMI cable/S-Air conflict is unbelivable!

Problems with Sony theater system

Thomas R. Kempke "TRK", Amazon
7 June 2009
  • Summary: Unit arrived intact and as advertised. I installed everything according to the directions, but couldn't get the wireless rear speakers to work. After about five hours of trying over two days, I gave up and returned the unit. Amazon accepted the return and even paid the return shipping. They credited my account for the full amount with three days. Product -- not so good. Amazon -- Great!
