Too large

Luke, Amazon

  • Summary: This system is really planned out and delivers wonderful sound. The only issue is the size, the receiver is about the size of a large suitcase and takes up way too much room. But other than that, it's stylish, functional, and durable.

Sony Sound system

  • Summary: I bought this for a gift and from what his wife tells me, he is very happy with the set-up---had it up and going Christmas Day. I have a similar set-up by Sony and have really enjoyed the sound.

Didnt buy it here but...

Garrett Bennicas "MasterFramer", Amazon

  • Summary: I got a new system off craigslist this evening and I must say I am VERY happy with my purchase. Set up was a breeze. I have my Comcast DVD hooked up to the coax and my 360 hooked up to the optical. Simple. I watch movies on my 360 so no need to use the other standard RCA inputs. Speakers sound great, sub is plenty for my apartment. If you only have $200 or so to spend... buy this system you wont be disappointed.

Great for small rooms or apartments

John Beals, Amazon
10 September 2014
  • Summary: I purchased this unit for our master bedroom. The number of inputs were perfect for our setup; Digital Coax for the DVD and Optical for the Digital Cable box. Setup was fast, but I had to go online to get a good feeling about speaker location. The only real problem I had was no sound at first. This was after the auto sound setup, which worked fine. I was afraid to turn it up too high because I thought the problem was the inputs from the DVD player and Cable box.

Disappointing

Randall Bresee "war buff", Amazon
10 September 2014
  • Summary: Purchased because of loyalty to SONY, wanted small HTIB for HDTV in game room. System performed well for one week then, in the middle of "Saving Private Ryan" system flashed PROTECT and shut down. Went through very cryptic trouble-shooting routine in the user manual and then contacted SONY support. They were not particularly helpful other than to say it would require SONY service and directed me to a location far, far away.

Great for the price

  • Summary: This is my first AV receiver system. I didn't know what to expect. I like Sony products and decided to give this a try as it was cheap in amazon (even before using my gift card). Sometimes, i feel the bass is too high even when i reduce it. But, overall i feel it's an awesome purchase. Especially, watching DVDs with DTS 5.1 output is awesome using this system.

Great unit for price!

Nicholas Vlies "Nick Vlies", Amazon

  • Summary: After researching this unit on the internet I purchased one at a retailer location near my work. The service was Horrible but the heavily discounted price made the hassle well worth it. For a small to medium sized room this is the best unit out there for under $300, much less under $200. Yes more expensive units will allow for greater expansion and more options for input and output of sound.

Excellent System for Price.

K. Der, Amazon
10 September 2014
  • Summary: If you want a budget home theater system for under $200 there is probably not many systems better then the Sony HT-DDW700. This system is ideal for small rooms such as a bed room or a tiny living room. Considering the price, sound quality is actually better then expected for me. The tiny cube speakers presents pretty good clarity. They may look like cheap computer speakers but they aren't and are a bit heavier then they look.

Excellent Choice

Shiva "Sound Rules", Amazon
10 September 2014
  • Summary: I purchased this item recently and it's excellent in all aspects. It took me less than a hour to set it up and the super cool auto calibration takes cares of calibrating the speakers without having the pain of doing it manually. The subwoofer delivers a meaty bass and the surround speakers are very impressive. The centre channel could have been powered up a bit more so that it can deliver the movie dialogues in depth, but still it does a good job.

  • Summary: Bought it over five years ago... No need to upgrade! Using HDMI cables for the Blue Ray DVD player and Apple TV; optical cable for the HDTV. This system rocks, pun intended!
