Summary: This speaker system was easy to hookup and the sound is very good for such a small unit.The only drawback is that it is limited to using only a "mini-stereo cable" for input into the unit. This limits you to basically a iPod or DVD player. Can't be used for for other sources of input without adapter cables. While the specifications sort of suggest there are accessories not included, it is unclear as to what would be appropriate for other applications.
Summary: All around good speakers for the price. They don't handle bass real well but for their size they do an okay job with it. Mid range and treble are all real good. Music played over them is clear and distortion free. Overall a good deal.
Summary: Needed a good speaker system for my parents LCD TV/Monitor Christmas gift that they use exclusively as a tv. I had bought this exact system for my teenager about 4 years ago and was very impressed with the sound. There was a little wear on the amp, but once I hooked it up to the headphone jack and turned it on, my parents were thrilled. Sound is great and by connecting it the way I did, everything is controlled by one remote.
Summary: I work in Pro audio and got turned on to these by a friend who already used them and let me borrow his set first. The sound imaging and clarity is exceptional for their size and price, but people who don't specifically listen for detail might want to be able to add more low-end. For me this is the perfect set of lightweight speakers to take on the road with my laptop.
Summary: I had been looking for a better quality speaker to replace the high quality (but huge) speakers that were packaged with my new Sony R series computer. I considered the Bose media mates and others recommended on this site but most still took a significant chunk of real estate and did little to free up visual space either.
Summary: If you really want portable speakers that sound great and cost a lot less go for the Bose Mediamates. They have exceptional sound quality for their size and price. Search for them and read my review on the Bose Mediamate! If you just want great speakers that go even louder than the Bose and have room shaking bass and can afford expesnive ones go for the Bose Companion 3! It is an AMAZING speaker system and it is like $20 more dollars than htis Sony speakers...
Summary: O.K. So you're an audio enthusiast with a multi thousand dollar esoteric hi fi system at home. Only you like to travel, and there's no way 100 odd kilo's of gear are going to find a place in your samsonite. Now here's a solution for all you music lovers out there who have been looking desperately for a portable system that adheres to higher fidelity standards: the Sony srs-Z1.
Summary: One of the smallest speakers on the market with fully qualified hifi sound. It's incredible that so small speakers could manage to create such a large soundstage. They present treble and midrange with an accuracy similar to electrostatic speakers. The bass is good enough, but lacks in quantity and power. My only recommendation: Buy and enjoy them ! I'm doing so !
Summary: Sony SRSZ1 are a great invest if you like a good sound. They have a great design and the separated amplifier fits anywhere. The sound is clear and has a great response to high and mid frequencies. They're great to use with personal computers or portable music players (like CD, MiniDisc or MP3 players). I've tried it with my Sony DE200 CD player and the sound is amazing. There's only one problem with these speakers: the high prize.
Summary: Big sound, very good quality. Only drawback is that they're a little hard to pack for travelling, with the separate amplifier and the speakers with their integral stands. Other than that - highly recommended.
