Summary: Likes - Sound quality - Nice features - Sony's quality Dislikes: - Too many wires - When you use iPod doc it freezes the access of it, we cannot access iPod directly rather we have to use the main unit's remote always and songs are played in alphabetical order rather it will not resume from where it...
A generally good cinema system but some design flaws

Summary: My old denon av500 went bang and I was forced into a quick purchase of a replacement. What HiFi recommendations have not failed me so far so I purchased the Sony BNV-N590. Firstly the good. The sound is pretty OK for an all in one cinema system and the picture from even ordinary DVDs is fabulous.
Summary: Set up was easy and I'm very pleased with the product sound is excellent it looks good and the rear speakers work well I used HDMI to the TV and optical cable to my Tivo box some all my media is played the the system.
Summary: V good sound and audio but beware it only plays one region dvd and blu rays. You won't be able to play imports so your choices of films will be severely limited. If you like foreign films you'd be better off getting an all region player from somewhere else as amazon for some obscure reason only sell...
Summary: I like the sound quality, it makes watching TV so much better, Blue ray films are brilliant on this system. The start up is a bit on the slow side, the TV picture comes on about 30 seconds before the sound which is a bit irritating.
Summary: I won't go into all the specifications of this system as the first reviewer does this very well (although revised slightly by the third reviewer) This is not our first Surround Sound system but is much more stylish than the last.
Good sound and clear pictures but Iphone/ipod functionality issues and slow internet services

Summary: I've always wanted a proper Cinema surround sound experience and this system delivers nicely. As can be seen in the product description pictures, the speakers are quite small however don't let that deceive you.
Summary: Nice piece of kit, Sony at last producing good products again. Good looks, good software, good performance. No lip sync problems, (a dream compared with my defunct Samsung)easy menu and set up, Wifi also works well (provided you put all required files in Win media player).
