I have been very impressed with this system so far. The sound quality is amazing! The bass shakes the room, and the sound from all the speakers blends together very nicely. It was a bit complex to set up but I figured it out without much trouble. The calibration mic makes calibrating the speakers fast and simple. the wireless rear speakers connected with no trouble. The built in wifi is nice and there are lots of internet apps with on demand movies, videos, internet radio, and music. The ipod dock is nice, but you can also plug in your ipod with it's charging cable to the front USB port and play it (this is what I usually do because I have to take the case off to use the dock). The menu is very intuitive and easy to use. it also works well to control iPod. The only real complaints I have is that the universal remote is difficult to program if you don't have sony components. although my TV is a samsung and it automatically synced with it. Also there aren't may inputs. there are only 2 HDMI ports and no other video in ports so you have to plug any other visual components into the TV separately. Generally, I think that this is a very good all around HTIB at a reasonable price. with great sound and picture quality, built in wifi, and good menus, I would highly recommend this product.

I will start by saying I have owned this theater system for a month and the sound is, in my opinion, awesome. The rear speakers make it worth the money. But there are some minor issues that Sony has missed. #1 - If you have the system in a cabinet, there is no way to read the display on the unit. Therefore, if you want to change the sound, you need to get up from the couch and read what the display states. #2 - Sony recommends setting up the system through HDMI and I agree, but Sony has the default function set to Composite. When the unit is shut off, it automatically returns to the Composite function. Every time I turn the set on I need to change the function setting from TV (Composite) back to HDMI 1. I called Sony suport and they stated I would have to manually change this function everytime if I have the unit set up with HDMI cables. This makes no sense. That is a major inconvenience for me, it may be minor to other customers.

Overall good system


from Saskatoon, Canada

Overall I am very happy with this system. The sound quality is awesome at any volume. It is very loud (never had volume above 70/100). The only thing I would improve is having a subwoofer with more power. The only problem I've had is that twice now the audio and video has gotten out of sync. Both times I did a factory restore which solved the problem.


I would buy this product again.

    This isn't the highest-end surround sound system, but it's the highest-end surround kit (all in one sort of kit). If you wanted to go higher, you'd have to purchase individual components, which I've done in the past. For this particular room, I just wanted a solid surround. This is it.

    My one main complaint comes from the initial set up. I had to install an update (wirelessly) to the system when I first had it delivered. It kept getting hung up and WOULD NOT LET ME CANCEL out of the update. While it was stuck in this update, I couldn't do anything with the system--couldn't watch TV or movies, etc. It was exceptionally frustrating. I called Sony support and while the person was pleasant, it took him forever to basically tell me that I had to go to my home computer and download the software update onto a CD. FINALLY, the surround sound update installed. It's worked great since then (although for a time, it had an issue with syncing up the voice with people's mouths, but that seems to have resolved).

      Blu-Ray Home Theater. System


      from Grand Rapids, Michigan

      I bought this system for my newly renovated basement and I really like this system. I have bought me some 3D movies and I love watching them and I am always listening to the TV with the system also.

      Best Uses

        This is the best Sony Home Theater i have ever bought. The sound is amazing, is crisp and clean with no distortions. It's real load and the subwoofer could really make the floors shake. The Front tall speakers look real nice and elegant and a perfect height. I love that it comes with the included Network Speaker (SA-NS310) it's a plus and it's and its load for being such a small speaker. But at the end it's a great system and i recommended it to anyone.

        Very Good once setup, but setup requires AV smarts


        from Seattle, WA

        My main reason for purchasing this solution was the wireless rear speaker setup. To clarify "wireless", this system does not require you to run wires from the A/V receiver to your rear speakers. The rear speakers connect to a receiver box that gets the audio signal wirelessly from the A/V receiver. Once setup, this system is brilliant. - The front tower speakers are great for not requiring separate speaker stands. - The A/V receiver is compact (compared to most standalone receivers). - Audio setup is easy and very accurate - All the passthroughs allow you to eliminate wires over a normal setup The big negative on this system is the lack of plug and play with Xbox360 and my Comcast cable box. - With the Xbox 360, if you want to pass the audio/video through this A/V receiver you must make a number of settings changes on the Xbox and the Sony receiver for it to work. This took me about 1.5 hours to figure out - With the Comcast cable box, you will not be able to pass the video through the Sony A/V receiver. This is due to something with HDCP between the Comcast box, the A/V receiver. You will need to run the HDMI for video directly from the Comcast box to your TV, then run Optical Audio from the Comcast box to the A/V receiver. This makes switching between TV, Xbox, and BD/DVD more involved. Before buying, I would check your cable box and with your cable company to ensure this will work seamlessly. I will be buying a TiVO to get around this issue. I would also highly suggest buying a programmable universal remote such as the Logitech Harmony One.

        I love it! Speakers are amazingly clear no matter how high you turn them. Design is simply amazing. This system had everything i ever wanted in a home theater system plus more that they did not even advertise (like web browsing!) I LOVE IT! Great job Sony, way to step up your game!!!
