Summary: This a great system for the price. Forget calibrating it with the supplied mic. Just go to the audio setting and manually set your levels and it will put out some serious sound. I put the front center and sub on 6 (the highest) and the surround speakers on 4.5. If you do the mic calibration everything ends up on around -3. The 3d Blu-ray player works wonderfully and so does playing music off my note 3 over Wifi from anywhere in the house.
This is an affordable top of the line system for a poor boy

Summary: This unit is everything as described in the description. I'm not a tech type person but instructions and color coding made it a snap to set up. We used this unit with View Sonic pjd-5134 svga dlp projector and Camp Chef 120" outdoor theater screen. At one point I heard trickling water behind me and thought someone had turned on the fountain. When I turned my head to see...I realized it was the trickling brook in Avatar. DVD player also delivered excellent quality.
In this class of surround system - this is the one to beat!

Summary: I was a bit worried about buying a system online without getting a look at it in person. My fears were unfounded with this system. Simple and powerful You cannot as for more than that. In this class of surround system this is the one to beat. It has integrated extremely well with my 65" Sharp Aquos TV and XBox 360.
Summary: We love this system. Easy to install and the wireless rear speakers work great. Don't bother with the microphone...instead tune each speaker the way you want to hear the sound...we had to crank up the rear units quite a bit but the difference is amazing. For those with older speakers, we have had 2 Jensen 3' tall speakers in oak cabinets built in 1980.
Summary: sony BDV-N7100w 5.1 experience is great. Easy to setup. Used mic to do auto calibration and works good. connected TV using Audio Return Channel(ARC)HDMI. so, sony home theater just turns ON when my samsung smart tv turns ON, happy with this. netflix on my TV automatically detects 5.1 and enables the surround sound speakers.
Summary: Sounds great tio me. Rich bass and mellow mids. People this is noty a BOSE System so please give respects where respects are due. I own various Bose items. OK Set up was simple and easy. I like that it has so many direct links to apps like NETFLIX, YouTube, MLB and a whole host of other stuff and once your internet connection is reliable and or sufficient speed, then every thing streams seamlessly.
Summary: Gentlemen, Sony is Sony. This product is very good. Here in my house everyone is amazed. We see movies with excellent sharpness, and the part of the sound, something special, first time experience a sound envolmente .... Something special. I recommend this product 100%.
Summary: Best props to Sony for a Job well done. I have to say that in the past I've never considered Audio to be Sony's strong suite. However with this 1000 watt system I have to say they have proved me wrong. And I say that after owning a Bose system. I purchased this system to go with my new Sony 65' 4K XBR and the marriage is perfect. This system is capable of up scaling to the best possible picture available to date.
Summary: The unboxing experience is AMAZING. Everything is gorgeous with that design. When you power up for the first time it will ask you to calibrate your system with the microphone it includes and it will increase or decrease the DECIBEL levels according to what it seems recommended for the room you are at. The thing is I think this calibration is a piece of crap. Mine lowered the levels too much and didn't let me appreciate the full performance the system can provide.
