This system is ahead of its time. You can input an xbox, or other vcr connectors; the bass incredible; go loud- quality remains

Summary: This DVD player sounds amazing; I've owned mine for years and it acts like it is still brand new; the sound quality lives up to Sony's reputation; Holding 5 DVD's is convenient because no one sets the DVD we just watched on the floor to put in the next one. I know where to find it to return it or put it away. The remote control has so many options to control this unit.
Summary: Average system. I was happy when I brought it, especially because of ease of setup and also as I own a Sony TV, I can operate with one remote. Points to consider before you buy 1. Not very many inputs and outputs. (If you want to route audio of multiple system like TV, computer, audio systems you have to keep switching wires same with video if you have a TV and a projector). 2. The DVD changer is a bit on the slow side. 3. No zoom, which is annoying some times 4.
Summary: I bought this system 10 months ago, and initially I was pleased... simply because it was a big step up from what I had before. That's not saying much, though. I would strongly advise others to purchase a different system. I can't comment intelligently on sound quality, but this home theater in a box lacks some basic and important features: No random, which is bad if you are just listening to music. No zoom. You also can't continue to play a disc while changing others.
Summary: If there was an option to rate this system with 0 stars, that would have been my pick. First of all, Sony has always been known for its impressive line of electronics and certain entertainment systems, but I must say I am extremely dissapointed with this system. It was enough that the music sounded like trash because no sound came from the smaller speakers, proving that this system was not made for parties or using it as a source of "surround sound".
Summary: I think we have some Sony reps on here posting 5 stars and phrases like "Sounds Great" because the first thing I noticed was the lack luster sound for being 650 watts. The volume indicator only goes from 1-40. 40 seems like an incomplete number on a volume scale , and it seems to be very indicative of the seeminly lack of volume at MAX. The bass was practically non existant , even after flipping through the cumbersome menu to raise to 6 (its max).
Summary: This home theater system is great for under 300 dollars. the good. 1.has good sound 2.comes with great little speakers 3.is a 5 dvd changer 4.the remote is good if you have a sony tv 5. has good bass The bad. 1.the remote is not so great if you do not have a sony Tv 2.not very many imputs and outputs 3.the dvd changer is a bit on the slow side other than that i would over all recomend it it has many great features . this is my setup.
Summary: Great picture and sound - my only complaint is that it doesnt have a zoom feature. This is something you'll need for older dvd's that are widescreen but not formatted for playback on a widescreen tv (has black bars on the top and bottom to make the widescreen output 4:3); for example, the original Pulp Fiction dvd release (1998). My widescreen tv has a zoom, but I have to turn off progressive scan to use it.
Summary: Well, I just hooked up my system. The sound is great, but I was really disappointed with the lack of audio inputs (there is only one stereo input). I mostly wanted the system for SRS for my Xbox, but I can't hook that up. So, if you only want to use these speakers with the DVD player that came with the system, then go for it -- good speakers, great price! If you were hoping to hook up other components, though, forget it.
Summary: thats the best home theater system for that price, i ve been trying to find that kind of set, i am fully happy to have chosen this set, after spending 1 hour for proper audio and environment settings, you will definately love more watching dvds or listening music....
