The sound is great, but....

Summary: I've had these speakers for four days and the sound is amazing, music sounds beautiful, I hear a perfect balance in highs and deep bass, the subwoofer shakes my floor and puts out a sound you can feel, on the other hand, movies require constant volume changes, during quiet parts you need to turn it up almost all the way, and during the action scenes you need to turn it down because it get way too loud.
Summary: After reading all of the negative reviews about any home theater system I look at, I was scared to purchase anything. I took a chance on the Sony Bravia DAV-DZ170. The setup was as easy as described by others. Once going, I wanted to experience the rotten bass I had read so much about, and decided a good test would be, say, the first ten minutes of "Saving Private Ryan.

Summary: This system is great! Works very well and was easy to hook up. My *only* complaint is that it's not wireless...the wires aren't long enough to string around our living room and they're super unsightly so we had to place most of the speakers towards the front.....kind of defeats the purpose of surround sound......would give 5+ stars if it had a bluetooth feature.
Decent, will have to adjust sound some, no HDMI inputs

Summary: Decent, obviously entry level. Sound can get loud and full which is nice. Did the auto-calibration and the speech was still too quiet so I turned the center speaker up quite a bit. One irritating negative is that it is in no way a receiver (which it isn't advertised as). It has no inputs for HDMI for other devices.
Summary: I went from my cheapy tv speakers to this; so it was quite a change. I set everything up and started watching tron and skipped to a action filled scene. I was blown away. Everything sounded great. The bass is intense for such a small subwoofer, the highs and mids are great. I would recommend this system to anybody looking for a cheap and nice system.
Summary: This unit delivers great, clear sound with a solid mix and easy setup. The only thing I didn't like is you don't get even a basic equalizer. All I really want to do is be able to turn the bass down just a bit. That's why I can't give it a 5 star rating. If you're looking for an affordable but high quality, easy to use surround sound system, look no further. Would definitely recommend.
Summary: Just got it today so my review may be premature, but so far this product rocks! It was very simple to hook up, the instructions are very clear and precise, and most importantly of all it sounds AWESOME! I now home a home THEATER.
Summary: Bought this system without Blueray being that we have an xbox in the living room and just wanted that extra sound. Sony did it again simple enough for grandpa to use and loud enough for teenagers to enjoy.
Summary: As always, Sony delivers. This sound system is WELL worth the money. It has an auto tune feature that makes setting up the speakers really easy, and the rear right and left speaker wires were a lot longer than I thought they'd be, making it easy to set them all up. The bass is nice and punchy when you need it to be, and the sound quality is pretty good too, nice and clear mids and highs. Overall, I love it.
