Summary: I really like the ability to turn the subwoofer on off or the volume of the sub up or down. The surround sound works very nicely in my living room. I had basically the same system before (it was the 850 model with dvd player) i think the sony systems sound very nice for the price. a new reciever with speakers is easily 300-400+. I paid 125 for this reciever surround sound speakers and sub.
Summary: I have been wanting a home theater system for a long time and this one was a great first choice. The instructions take a little longer to digest through than I thought they would, but within 2 hours everything was set up, adjusted and I was watching a dvd. Great for someone who already has a dvd player they like and only needs the basic system. I live in an apartment and the sound is fantastic.
Summary: At first I thought that this sytem would'nt meet my audphile demands, but it proved me wrong. I got it for only ... and it is awesome! The receiver has 500 watts, and very useful options like prologic II and its jaw-dropping cinema ex sounds. Te satallites deliver the rich sound you expecet from sony, and the sub is very clean and powerful. I live in a large 2-story house, and my parents complain that the whole house is shaking!If you want audiophile sound for only ...
Summary: This is a nice home theater system. Might not be right for audiophiles, but good enough for average guy like me. And for me price was right and I get Sony brand name with it. I was thinking about buying Onkyo system, but would have cost me additional $300 which I couldn't justify. One curious thing about the receiver was that it accepted both digital coax and optic, but in the manual Sony recommended using coax, I wonder why. Hmm...
Summary: All i can really say for this system is Oh My God! After it took me awhile to figure things out like the initial setup which still needs some work, i got it working with my new DVD recoder and i was blown away, my ears were ringing and house was shaking...just kidding, but it was lound and sounded wonderful, so much better than my old audiovox crap. Excellent deal for the money and i am truly happy. I have been waiting along time to replace my old system, so glad i did.
Summary: I'm a pretty picky person when it comes to sound systems. However, with a family, I can't afford to spend a lot on a "great" sound system. I was a little skeptical at first but after I started using this sytem...I was pretty happy. I did replace the 24 guage wire with 16 guage wire for all the speakers and even added a nice subwoofer cable. Makes all the difference in the world. Nice Starter Unit!!!
Summary: I have never had anything but the audio coming from the stereo speakers on my TV, and I was blown away the first time I heard this system. I bought this system brand new off of eBay for $250 total in late February 2004 and have been completely satisfied since. I like to relax in my room now and crank that sub all the way up untill my windows rattle and the pictures on the wall shake.
Summary: This is a great home theater system for the price, I paid $264.00 from Amazon. The music it plays is rich and full--good highs from the satellite speakers and the sub is good without being too boomy--you can adjust the levels of all 5 speakers including the sub. The best part is sound from the Dolby digital 5.1 and DTS--WOW! I recommend one try the Gladiator DVD encoded with DTS.
Summary: This is a great HT system for those who already have a DVD player. The sound quality for this system is very good. The sound coming out the center speaker is bright and rich. When I narrowed down my choice between this Sony and the Kenwood 306, I compared the sound of the two side by side.
