Well made, needs modern connectivity
on September 7, 2012
The chair itself does what it claims and is well made. Sound quality is decent for stereo. Overall a positive experience, but I am going to focus on the negatives for this review.
I was unable to get the arms tight enough. Three allen wrench screws hold each arm onto base. Tightened them up as much as possible without stripping threads. But I was still able to wiggle each arm about 1/4 inch forward and backwards. Very noticeable getting in and out.
I'm 6'2". The back doesn't come up as high as I need. So I get some neck fatigue after sitting in it awhile.
The speakers on the top face outwards. Therefore making more sound in the room for others. Personally, I would have preferred them forward facing next to my ears.
Has great bass and vibration, although I find it strange that it has to be turned up to a certain level before vibration starts.
My biggest gripe is you cannot easily connect it to a PS3. PS3's do not have RCA or headphone jacks. After contacting customer support, they said I needed the accessory cable that came with the PS3 (something I lost long ago, because I would never need it with HDMI). However, Sony's manual says you cannot use the accessory cable and HDMI at the same time. Although the agent assured me it does.
