Summary: great sound and you can put the sub-woofer anywhere you want (i recommend behind the couch if possible). i use this with my Xbox one and it works with the Xbox one "power on" functionality ( if you are unaware what that is it just means you can set it up to where the xbone powers on the receiver for...
Summary: Needed something better than the sound from my flat screen speakers and this did the trick . Granted its not the same as a good surround sound system but it does the job well. Very easy to setup and use and for us having the fm tuner built in was a plus. I am happy with it.
Summary: Wouldnt say the sound is awesome with all caps, but it works for what it is. The receiver works well and the media link to your other media devices is perfect for all your sony stuff (and works with my sharp tv also). Again, sound is good but not great.
Summary: I like the sound of this speaker set a lot. It sounds great and the presets work well. I don't find it too boomy or too thin. The controls are out of date. The old LCD display could use an update.
Summary: I bought this because of the integration to the Sony Bravia television. The sound is much better than the built in speakers and the bass really rumbles. The sound bar is not true surround but sound good anyway. One downside to this unit is mounting options.
Summary: I love sound bars. This is my second one from Sony. My first was the smaller version with only the subwoffer and the sound bar. This one has an outboard amp and although I really love the sound...it sometimes does not come on.
Powerful, convenient, easy to set up, confusing to program, and lacks headset jack

Summary: I just received this product yesterday and spent about 6 hours trying to make it match my expectations. I hope this review helps others who have the same need I do. I used to have a custom (read: Frankenstein-ish) sound system attached to my home stereo.
