Summary: Buying: A small problem with the information provided by EBay for the Sony BRAVIA® DAV-HDX279W. Information identified unit as a 6-1 (7) speaker system. This isn't true, it is a 5-1 (6) speaker system. After some discussions with the seller, we came to an amicable settlement with some of the original cost being returned by the seller. Using: Unit was easy to set up but it isn't exactly wireless.
Summary: Does what i intended it to do for me and great sounds from the speakers as well. Would recommend this to anyone who needs to save some money and space but loves to have BIG movie sound in their home!!!!
Summary: I researched Home Theater systems for months. I am not an expert by any means on home systems. I wanted a system that was easy to set up, easy to use and has excellent sound quality. The Sony DAV-HDX279W is that system!
Pros: Clear Sound, Easy To Setup, Interfaces Well With TV, Intuitive Controls, Thundering Bass
Summary: Since I bought my Sony Bravia 52" TV, I have been replacing outdated sound equipment. This unit took place of my Technics Surround system. Amazing sound and easy to navigate , if you have any of the Bravia sync TV's. I would highly recommend this. I just have never had all my functions in one unit [ audio, DVD, CD AM-FM] . My old school logic tells me if one function goes sour I'am stuck. Where in the old school I just had to unplug and repair a seperate componet.
Summary: I upgraded from HDX265--the HDX279 has much deeper base, and more movie theater like surround sound. Easy to set up. When calibrating the surround, favor closest to the front speakers, to give more surround to the back speakers.
Pros: Clear Sound, Easy To Setup, Interfaces Well With TV, Thundering Bass
Summary: I did some researching on the various electronic sites before making the purchase here of this system. I decided on this one because of the wireless rear speakers and because everything I've had Sony has lasted a long time with very minimal problems. Setting the system up was very easy and calibration didn't take too incredibly long.
Pros: Clear Sound, Easy To Setup, Intuitive Controls, Thundering Bass
