The system is not chock full of customizable features but it gets the job done with fantastic sound. Would not consider myself an Audiophile by any means but I do enjoy premium sound so not having a fully customizable output interface is fine by me. Would like to have a separate control on the sub to bring it down a notch since I have a very small living room. I did notice a major difference by using an actual tripod for the calibration mic during the set up process as opposed to simply setting the mic on the couch round about ear level. Am running the cable and PS3 through the TV via HDMI then sound from TV to this box via optical cable. Quality is great. Do note the DAV-DZ170 model is not a BluRay player. (Seriously, BlueRay should be standard offering by now.) Not a big deal for me since I have the PS3 but is something I did not check pre-purchase as I was simply looking for a sound system upgrade from my old analog Pioneer receiver. Has support for iPod connection and the remote control can control the iPod, however, the receiver does not display the iPod screen info out to the TV which is a skosh disappointing. Perhaps I have to look deeper into the settings on this.... Overall a great value for the price point.

Let me start by saying I'm by no means a audiophile, but I do know good sound quality when I hear it. Sony really let me down with this product. I understand that this home theater system is priced well for a economy system. With that said though its still over-priced for not having a blu-ray player. I took the bait thinking the 1000w system would make up for the lack of not having the blu-ray player, because I was really looking for a system that would be good for just watching good movies on our cable & netflix because we simply don't watch many dvds. I have a soundbar alone set up in my other room with a wireless sub that blows this Sony theater system away, & it was just a fraction of the price. You are very limited on the settings, its very standard. You are not able to control nothing in all reality. The sub is a major issue as it seems too get most of the juice coming from this system, tends too be way too loud and over takes the other speakers. Sad thing is, I'm the type of guy that likes a lot of bass with movies & music, but this is just too much at times and completely ruins the effect. Would be nice too control the bass, but you can't. I can control the bass on the sub included with my $40.00 Computer speaker system, why not this one? Lol. So with that said, in this price range I do believe that there are way better products out there. Most that even include a blu-ray player at the same price. Do you're homework and research online, find a truly good product worth dropping your hard earned money on.

Lot of Bang for the Buck

    Comments about Sony Bravia Black Home Theater System:

    Purchased from The Sony Store as a refurbished unit. What a tremendous deal! There was a bit of a learning curve for me as far as wiring, etc., but once I got everything squared away, I was impressed! I would like to have bass and treble controls, (if I'm missing something, please let me know!) but so far that has been a non-issue. Totally happy with this purchase!

    Worst product ever

    By legit

    from Undisclosed

    Comments about Sony Bravia Black Home Theater System:

    I recently purchased the sony sorround sound system and its not a good product. Very dissapointed. The S-Air sytem constantly drops out which makes the back speakers stop working all the time. 5-6 times a movie the sound will just go out in the back speakers. I've contacted sony about this problem and they basically tell me that you cant have wireless internet because there frequency to run their speakers is the same 2.4ghz. Really wish I would of known this. Very annoying!!

        • no equalizer

        Best Uses

          Comments about Sony Bravia Black Home Theater System:

          overall an OK system. Just OK. 1000w rating is misleading, at best. Very disappointed with the sound volume - has to be on at least 5 to hear anything standing right in front of the speakers. Did not expect Sony to overrate the wattage like a cheap flea market system. DVD player works OK, needs an eject button on the remote. Can't individually adjust the volume of the sub woofer. I would have bought something else had I known all this. For the money, it's just an OK system.

            • Sleek look

            Best Uses

              Comments about Sony Bravia Black Home Theater System:

              Overall, I'd have to say that this is a great system. I'm not a full blown audiophile, but I know good quality sound if I hear it. I got it for my birthday a week ago and it's in my room right now. All I can say is wow. The sub hits and when it does, you'll know it and the highs and mids on the speakers are so clear. It couldn't have been any easier to set up: take it out of the box, match the colors up, and away you go. The A.CAL mic was iffy for me, I hadn't read the instructions so I hadn't anticipated how loud the test sounds would be. I'm not one for a bunch of remotes so I was a bit concerned as to whether I could program my tv remote to the stereo but I found out soon enough that my stereo remote was programmed to the tv already- perhaps because it's a Sony. All in all, a great system> If later on Sony had the option of playing movies through the USB attached to an iPod, that'd be a good selling point but for now, it suits my needs more than enough.
