I had been looking for a sound system and blue -ray player for about six months. I was very pleased to find Sony on line had both combined into one componet. The other plus feature is the wireless rear speakers. I had just built a new home and did not want to drill into the hardwood floors.

Everyone whom I have shown the system too can not believe the superior sound coming out of those thin speakers. Needlees to say the blue-ray disc purchases have started and we are enjoying the movies as well as the HD 5.1 broadcasts of sports and prime time tv from our satalite hook up.

I am waiting for Sony to offer the speaker stands to complete the instalation. Beacause of the furniture layout, I will need to have two of the speakers off the floor.

I will be taking advantage of the Wireless S-Air feature in our other rooms in the house.

I could not be happier.

Good Product but lot to improve.

Pros: Sound Quality is good but it doesn't produce enough sound for a 1000W system. Rear speake quality is also very good. Easy Set up. Cons: Rear speakers are not really wireless....Read complete review

Pros: Sound Quality is good but it doesn't produce enough sound for a 1000W system. Rear speake quality is also very good. Easy Set up. Cons: Rear speakers are not really wireless. I even called the customer support to enquire about the rear speakers before buying this product, they also said it is wireless. I will be more careful when I buy something from Sony next time. Rear speakers need to connect to a common amplifier attached to a power source and the wires for the rear speakers are not long enough. HDMI cable is not included in the package and to me it is totally unacceptable. Also the screws for hanging the speakers on the wall could have been included in the package. I am giving 3 stars for this product for the sound quality and easy set up.

Sony Blueray HDB-N790w


from Pittsburgh, PA, USA

At first I liked the unit. The more I used it the more it let me down. The surroud speakers (rear) have little or no bass. Most of the time you hear something that sounds like something fell in the kitchen. Long time to boot around 40secs after the tv comes on and reads no signal. I completly do not understand how you mount the speakers from the rear. If it means removing the black rectangular cap on the back, forget about it. I would create more damage to the speakers. Try finding speaker stands for that syatem. I ended up buying flat stands that are too large for the rear speakers looks weird. Every speaker stand I tried would not mount the speakers with that bottom mount setup. If Im wrong about my review can someone let me know.


Suddenly Can Not Watch Netflix Movies


from 96706

Netlfix movies failed to completely load then error message aip701 appears.unable to load movie try again. Contacted the tech support for Netgear router, and Time Warner cable providers who conducted a complete diagnostics and found no problems with their systems. Spoke to several Sony tech support and one rep finallyemailed me some articles but still did not fix the problem. Gave up trying after more than a dozen attempts. I will be hesitate to buy another Sony Blu Ray Theater System..


Worst piece of junk I have every bought


from Clinton TNT

This is the first and last sony product I will buy. I have had the system for eight months and it quit working. They want me to mail it to Texas for repair. What am I suppose to do in the meantime? They have the worst customer service I have ever seen. For the price of this system I expect better service. All my other purchases have been LG and Samsung. Bet there will never be another Sony product in my house. I am sure telling all my friends and family how bad their products and service is.

from Clearfield, Ut

Easy to operate, but volume goes up on its own sometimes. Will contact tech support.

Love the sound sysytem


from Ventura, Ca

We love our surround system! We like watching movies and listening to music loud...


It sounds good but it's ...


from Jamaica, NY

It sounds good but it's not very user friendly. Cheaper models are Bluetooth equipped. I can't get it formatted to fit my screen no matter what. I wanted to return it but I bought it for my boy friend before Christmas and missed out on my time to return.


Great Purchase!


from Arlington, VA

Easy to use great sound, one of the best systems on the market, great value for the money.


Great system


from Provo, Utah

I liked the feature where the disk slides in the side of the top. No tray for a small child to break off by accident. I also bought it for the Wi-Fi feature and the rear wireless speakers. I was surprised by all the internet features available including Pandora and Netflix. Some of the internet features, like Netflix require a subscription fee and some are free. The surround sound is great and I also run my satellite TV through it too. The light in front dims every time you touch a button; it reminds me of an old Cylon eye moving back and forth. It was very easy to setup and use. The remote is small and easy to use. It even remembers the movies you watch and you put a disc you watch back in and it will ask you if you want resume play. It is a great system.


Love it!


from Sn Antonio, Texas

Does everything and does it well. Didn't bankrupt me to buy it and didn't drive me nuts putting it together. I'm real happy with its versatility and my neighbors like it too!


Not good!


from Chelsea, MA

My blue Ray has too many issues and the netflix conection never works.
