Summary: This is a very simple to install and great sounding system. Replaced a 5.1 speaker Harmon Kardon system and this unit sounds just as good or without all of the extras and speakers. The upscaling built-in DVD player is also a great feature. Beware: This unit sells for $599 from Sony and SonyStyle stores with free shipping (being discontinued in a couple of months according to SonyStyle store manager).
Summary: Very visually appealing, but not much to this system. It has radio function, but it's not even worth a bother because the reception is terrible (might be my apartment, but i really doubt it; the antenna sucks). Audio is satisfactory, does what i expect from a top tier 2.1 system. Dont think that a very expensive 2.1 system will have as good of a quality as a much cheaper 5.1 system; go for the cheaper 5.1 system if you have the space.
