the price was right

Branden J. Strot, Amazon
28 December 2013
  • Summary: for the most part, the system is great for what i paid. but it has an occasional issue where the sound and picture will cut out for a second. it usually only does this one time when it is turned on, but annoying non-the-less. at least i have tivo, so i can skip back to find what i missed.

Almost Great

The One, Amazon
19 February 2013
  • Summary: Very Awesome, it was the first surround i got with 3 HDMI inputs. It is a great and decently priced unit, however be aware the Sub will blow in no time, I suggest you build a custom box and put a real sub in it. Other than that I would have given 5 stars.

Home Theater System

Antonia I. Epstein, Amazon

  • Summary: It does everything I expected and sound is great. The base is deep and penetrates the walls. I'd recommend this system to those who are in the market an excellent sound system at a very reasonable price

Nearly 4 years and still going strong

Kevin "Tree Frogs", Amazon
1 July 2012
  • Summary: I have had this setup for nearly 4 years and it has been awesome. It gives me more sound than I could really need and sounds great whether watching a movie, listening to music or playing video games. I was leery of buying the Home theater in a box but this has been great.

Good sound for the price

John D. Steere, Amazon
25 November 2009
  • Summary: I spent a long time shopping for a home theater system. I'm glad I followed the advice of other reviewers and chose this item. I have a small room with a big TV, and this provides just the right kind of sound. Works especially well with my PS3, and it was a breeze to hook up.

Warranty is Useless

Bob, Amazon
17 November 2009
  • Summary: I've owned this unit for a little less than a year. I began having distortion problems with the subwoofer about a month ago. I hooked up a neighbor's subwoofer to the system and it worked fine. I contacted Sony and learned the product had to be shipped to Texas at my expense for warranty repairs. I boxed up the subwoofer, attached a note explaining the problem including that another subwoofer worked fine, and shipped it to Texas.

SONY WARRANTY NOT WORTH THE PAPER PRINTED ON

Eric M. Stark, Amazon
15 October 2009
  • Summary: System worked great for 5 months. Then all of the sudden it stopped sending the video signal to the tv (SONY 52" Bravia HD LCD). It continued to send the audio signal. Sent it to SONY service center in Laredo, Texas at my expense ($51). They sent it back two weeks later with a note that stated that the unit was not broken. Same problem still exited. Called 800 222-SONY and spoke with supervisor in El Salvador (Yes, the country in Central America!!!!!!!!!

The sub-woofer is seriously flawed

Michael J. Scott, Amazon
12 October 2009
  • Summary: I have had this system for about 9 months now and other than the sub-woofer it is a fine home theater system which is easy to set up and use. Unfortunately at anything over about volume 20 the sub-woofer will crackle and pop loudly, rendering it worthless. I was forced to unplug it entirely. Equally problematic is the fact that unless you are into wiring you cannot replace the sub-woofer as it is designed to work with this system only.

Excellent system for my living room

T. Nguyen, Amazon
16 September 2009
  • Summary: Got the system for about 2 weeks now. Setup to work with my Sony blue-ray disk player is a breeze. The system was setup in 10 minutes with the sound calibration using the microphone thingy. However, I need to adjust for the surround-sound speakers individually for my taste. I try the radio FM signal to test the speakers. They perform excellent for their size; the sound is crisp, clear. The only issue is the speaker wires come with the system are short.

Glad I Bought

Robert Adams, Amazon
9 September 2009
  • Summary: I had to replace my old Sony that got struck by lightning, looked at a lot of "combo" systems, took a chance on this one. It is set up in our living room, about 14x20 in area. Unit has more than enough oomph for me. Pros: Though not stated any where I could find in the specs the 3 HDMI inputs are not pass through. Really helps the sound from both my Blu-ray and my Sat. Easy to wire; wires come with color coded connections for the unit, no brainer.
