Summary: I have been a devoted Sony customer for years and have owned a few Sony DVD systems and TVs along the way. This system looks great, sounds great but is plagued with defects and has affected my devotion towards Sony products. - Like other Sony products, this system looks really good. The player and the speakers all have aluminum casing that makes it durable, look good and produce great sound. - The Amplifier and the speakers are powerful with 800w total output.
