Summary: such poor sound from such a reputable brand, and the reviews made this out to be a quality sound producing system but it is not, poor quiet tinny sound with extremely little bass. the volume must be turned nearly all the way up to understand the quiet voices in a movie.
Summary: easy to install the sounds are excellent easy to operate I would recommend this system to anyone who requires a surround sound I would also recommend the seller Sotel for an excellent service.
Summary: Very disapointed good sound and picture but no deep bass,I don't wats happening to sony most of there products are full of gadgets but less bass especially home cinema system,I think next time I ll try to get a bose
Wish I'd got this earlier! - but see added note re software update

Summary: First off, another exemplary delivery from Amazon - why does anyone pay for fast delivery when that's often what you get anyway? This arrived in its own Sony box without any extra "carrier protection" packaging but all was well on arrival.
