Great Sound

B. Martin "Mar10", Amazon
12 April 2009
  • Summary: System installed fairly easy. Remote control is a little busy. Would of liked to see more definition between TV and stereo controls. Once I get used to it I'm sure it will be fine.

Good fit for Bravia TV

Nate Biddle, Amazon
19 February 2009
  • Summary: This is a very easy system to set up and works well with my Sony TV. The wireless speakers are not exactly wireless but they don't connect to the receiver, so I was able to put them were I wanted to. Just had to move them around a bit to plug the amplifier in. For what it cost it is a great value.

compatibility of sound system with TV

E. H. Stone, Amazon
20 January 2009
  • Summary: I have a Sony Bravia 40 inch high definition LCD. I wanted a sound system that was compatible and would integrate well with the TV. After reviewing several surround sound systems, I decided on the Sony Bravia Theater System, due to the specs but mainly because it was the same brand as the TV.

Works OK

David A. Ferreira Sr., Amazon
19 January 2009
  • Summary: This system works ok for the price. It was relatively easy to set up, wires are clearly color coded. The wireless rear speakers are one of the best features. I just wish there was more of an equalizer. Can not customise the bass or treble.

Nice

  • Summary: The product is good so far. I've only used for about a month. The subwoofer is great. The up-convert is good too. The system does go well with a Sony Bravia HDTV.

A good value

Joel I. Tanner, Amazon
7 January 2009
  • Summary: Was pleased to discover that this product also had a radio tuner. It was not mentioned in the specs or even on the box. Would like for it to have had totally wireless rear speakers, but . . .

Pretty good overall - but with some frustrating limitations

D. Hegarty, Amazon
23 December 2008
  • Summary: All in all, it's fine considering I got a really good deal on it, just fell below my expectations. Had I paid full price I would probably have returned it. Beware if you think you're getting into a simple "setup and go"/"plug & play" system.
