The Perfect System

By Nautictalk

from Miami Beach, FL

Pros

  • A Work of Art. Sound and features

Cons

  • Documentation. Inconvenient to switch between BD and TV

Best Uses

    Comments about Sony 3D Blu-Ray Disc Soundbar Home Theater System:

    I never write reviews. But since my interest was piqued with this system; I was surprised with the dearth of user reviews on the net. And because of this, I was indecisive and it took me a week or so until finally 'bit the bullet' and went with this system. So, I thought I would write this review and help those who are unsure of this system .
    On the face of it, this system had everything I was looking for. It's sleek, simple and powerful. And it was a design match for my new Bravia. I acquired this system because I wanted a simple system for my second home. I also wanted something that would complement my new Bravia 55 TV. First, this system is not only sleek and a work of modern art, it produced amazing sound which belied its size. I installed in a relatively large great room and the sound filled the room fully, powerfully and with clarity. We listened to Pandora music, and both my wife and I were simply amazed of the high fidelity. Yes, its not 5.1, but all I just wanted a simple sound bar and small woofer with great sound. And the small subwoofer fit perfectly behind my TV stand, and was more than adequate to shake my room.
    It was relatively simple to set up. You connect one Ethernet cable to the cable box which was right next to my unit; although you have the option to do a wireless hookup. Then there was one set of speaker wires to the sound bar and one wire to the subwoofer. But the HDMI connection is where I had a problem. One of the reasons why I wanted this system was because of the ARC HDMI connection. For those who dont know, the ARC feature basically enables the TV and added components to communicate back and forth. I incorrectly took it for granted that all the HDMI inputs were ARC enabled. In this case, I had incorrectly installed my cable box to the ARC HDMI and the system was connected to the standard HDMI. And because of this, I couldnt get any sound when everything finally connected up. I was mystified. I had to re-read both the TV manual and also the system manual, to finally get it. I switched the connections, and all was well. But Sony should have really made this clear that the system must be specifically connected to the HDMI input indicated with only ARC enabled HDMI input. Sony should really address by highlighting this. The other issue is that you cannot easily switch back and forth to regular TV viewing and BD viewing. Unless I am doing something wrong, you have to deal with 2 remotes and remember the process. But its not a real problem for me, because I dont really watch a lot of DVDs. All in all, these are really minor issues.
    But I have to say, the system greatly exceeded my expectations. Its a clean set up and the monolith design of the system matches perfectly to the Bravia TV. Also, I found that the upright position of the unit is a big advantage for me. I have my TV mounted on a stand and the upright unit hides my router modem. The sound is full and the woofer rumbles my room while watching Avatar. The BD also played perfectly. BTW, I supplemented the sound bar with the TV speakers. I recommend this. I also programmed my cable TV remote, and with one button everything powers up. Channel, home theater volume and power. Plenty of internet channels such as Netflix, Pandora, etc. Once you have the sound bar going, you wont go back to just TV speakers. In actuality I have a 5.1 system at my primary home and its just too overpowering sometimes for just for regular TV watching. But this sound bar system is just right for regular TV watching as well as the occasional BD or movie watching.
    All in all, I couldnt be more thrilled and I highly recommend this system. Its well worth the price and I am giving it five stars. If you are thinking of getting this system, I suggest you act quickly since Sony had discounted it, and it might be discontinued soon. And they may or may not have a similar replacement from a design standpoint. And at current prices, its a tremendous value. Trust me, you wont be disappointed!

    Even Better Than Expected!

    By jbmaverick

    from Roanoke, VA

    Pros

    • Easy Install
    • Great Design
    • superb audio/video quality

    Cons

    • Interface with my Sony Bravia TV is a bit awkward

    Best Uses

      Comments about Sony 3D Blu-Ray Disc Soundbar Home Theater System:

      Wow, I love this system! First of all, it LOOKS beautiful - the Blu-ray player doesn't even look like any kind of electronic component (since you can't see any control buttons on it) - It looks more like just some futuristic, super-cool black glass box (the discs slip into a slot on the side - there's no tray to have to open and close). The sound bar sits perfectly on my TV stand, right in front of my Bravia TV, without blocking the remote sensor. The sound quality is terrific, a major improvement over even my pretty high-quality Bravia TV sound, and the video quality is naturally excellent as well.

      Great integrated system for entry into 3D

      By Chunon

      from Wilmington, Ohio

      Pros

      • comes with wifi dongle
      • Design
      • internet connectivity and apps
      • Small Footprint
      • Sound
      • Styling

      Cons

      • Limited number of inputs
      • no simulated surround for two channel sources

      Best Uses

        Comments about Sony 3D Blu-Ray Disc Soundbar Home Theater System:

        Excellent system for a small to medium size room. Surround sound effect is good but better with a true 5.1 system. Styling is very nice and it sound great even with two channel sources. Was a little disappointed that it doesnt doesnt offer sumulated surround for two channel sources but overall I am very pleased with this product. DLNA could be improved but lots of options for intenet content. Set up is a breeze and the unit has a very small footprint.

        Nice Design and sound / limited media streaming

        By bblaroux

        from New York

        Pros

        • good sound quality for my small room
        • Sleek design

        Cons

        • EXTREMELY limited DLNA functionality

        Best Uses

          Comments about Sony 3D Blu-Ray Disc Soundbar Home Theater System:

          I have a small television/game room (20x12) with a 40" screen. The sound of this product is very good and hooks up nicely with my daughter's IPOD. Netflix movies stream without a hitch and my wife enjoys playing music through Pandora. Unfortunately I should have done more research before purchasing, because even though
          the BDF-F7 touts DLNA capability, it is extremely limited in it's file support. I have home videos and movies in AVCHD and H.264 format, but the BDF-F7 does not support streaming of these files as well as various other popular ones (M2TS, Xvid, etc). I went out and purchased a WD-TV live Hub which now sits in front of the Sony product to handle home media content. Hopefully a future firmware upgrade will include streaming support of these and other popular codecs.

          Not Worth The Money

          By EricT

          from Ft. Laudedale

          Comments about Sony 3D Blu-Ray Disc Soundbar Home Theater System:

          This product is way too expensive for what it is worth. I'm having a hard time with the receiver accepting my Ipod and the sound bar is not that great for sound. Very disappointed in this Sony product. The only good thing is the qualty of the picture when DVD's or Blue Ray's are played.
