summitboy, ABT Electronics

  • Summary: I have been a Sony loyalist for 30 years. I've had Walkmans, stereos, VHS/CD players and currently have 3 Sony trinitrons. I bought this sound bar and a 50"r450 bravia to replace my 36" HD Trinitron that died. Bad idea, the new TV and sound bar don't hold a candle to my old TV. The reviews for the sound bar were overwhelmingly great. I disagree. I thought Bose systems were bass heavy but this sound bar is extreme.

non compatible with other TV's

Mrs. Aileen Thomas, Amazon
16 February 2014
  • Summary: This didn't deliver as advertised. The HDMI connection only works with Sony TV's - this is not made clear at the time of purchase. Sony support was useless as they didn't understand what the problem was. It is not as loud as it is purported to be. In the end, i returned it to Amazon on their 30-day return on the basis it was not as advertised or compatible.

très déçu

Ahmed Habbar, Amazon
20 May 2013
  • Summary: Je suis déçu par la qualité... je pense la remettre en vente. La barre s'éteint automatiquement et donc il faut la rallumer à chaque fois. Le son n'est pas à la hauteur de Sony..

Technisch mangelhaft

khrrugh, Amazon
23 December 2012
  • Summary: Die Soundbar ist in der Tat kinderleicht aufzubauen und sieht wunderschön aus. Der Klang an sich ist sehr gut, sowohl Bässe als auch Höhen werden klar wiedergegeben. Aber irgendwo muss Sony einen Konstruktionsfehler eingebaut haben: Die Boxen der Soundbar rauschen, und zwar nicht zu knapp. In den lauteren Passagen eines Films oder eines Liedes ist das kein Problem, sobald aber wenig bis kein Ton zu hören ist, rauscht es.

Leider störendes Hintergrundrauschen

Philipp, Amazon
21 December 2012
  • Summary: Ich habe mir diese Soundbar gekauft und gleich 2 Tage später zurückgegeben. Der Sound ist wirklich top, keine Frage. Jedoch gibt es da dieses kleine, aber sehr störende Manko. Die Soundbar gibt nämlich, nachdem man sie am Strom ansteckt und sie einschaltet ein nervendes Rauschen von sich. Ich habe alles umgestellt doch es hat nichts geholfen. Sogar wenn man die Soundbar mutet giebt sie dieses Rauschen von sich! Gerade in ruhigen Film-Szenen ist es extrem störend.
