Summary: The speakers are pretty much useless for listening to music. Bass is great, but everything else sounds like over a telephone. In movies dialogue is usually too quiet and you have to crank the volume up. And an annoying detail: I have Sony TV and Blu-Ray player, everything connected via HDMI. The sound bar switches on/off automatically with the TV. So far, so good.
Summary: I had this connected to a Samsung TV and have had it for nearly a month and watched TV, Blurays, played xBox through it and also just played music through it. I was assured that the TV being a different brand would not be an issue - however a quick look on Google and you will find many forums of people trying to find advice on how to get this sound bar to work with various different brands of TVs. So there definitely are compatibility issues with some features.
Summary: Subwoofer signal prone to frequently dropping out. Loud clicking through system speakers when using remote controls. Sony troubleshooting guide and technical support did not help. Soundbar finally died! Retuned. Very disappointed with this product. Was pro Sony .... now need to rethink!
Summary: I returned the original soundbar due to a hissing noise coming from the left channel, which appeared after a few minutes, but never on a cold start. On the replacement, the same noise was apparent, on the left channel of the speaker. The noise did Not get louder when increasing volume, however at low volumes, the noise actually impaired my ability to hear any sound! The noise was present on both soundbars through HDMI (ARC), Optical & Bluetooth.
Summary: Quality of sound when properly working is good. The unit was however faulty as the sub woofer kept on fading in and out I have sent it back to Amazon for replacement. The other problem is that when the unit is connected by way of an HDMI cable to the TV it still defaults to the optical input - very annoying. One important issue is the very poor quality of customer support provided by Sony.
Summary: Artikel trifft die Erwartungen nur zum geringen Teil, Versand, Verpackung, Aufbau/Montage sind wie immer beispielhaft, alles in allem ein problemloser Kauf. Der Artikel selbst jedoch war nicht fehlerfrei, auch ein auf Wunsch prompt gelieferter Ersatzartikel zeigte denselben Fehler. Die Funkverbindung zwischen Sound Bar und Subwoofer bricht ständig ab. DIe Position und Entfernung der beiden Geräte zueinander beeinflussen diesen Umstand nicht positiv.
