DO NOT buy something that lacks Dolby 5.1 capabilities. Period.
26 November 2013
Summary: Well, i blame my own stupidity and not fully researching the importance for Dolby 5.1. When I purchased it, I believe it was just over $300 and it was shortly after buying a 65" Bravia, a top of the line Blue Ray, etc... Anyway, I didm;t realize just how important Dolby 5.1 was until I got the new update for Netflix.
Summary: I don't often write reviews, but I want to warn people about this system. I have the "prior generation" model, the 350, and I did a side-by-side comparison. The earlier model just blows this one away. I'm not sure why Sony downsized the speakers and removed the center channel, but the results are clearly not good. The sound is flat in comparison. I'd avoid it unless the wireless subwoofer is important to you.
