I am not an audiophile. So I didn't try to compare technical specs. This review is strictly subjective (in part to counter the one above) and is based on what I have heard while using the system with the TV.
The room in which the TV is located in is a 20 X 20 den/family room with a connecting dining area and kitchen. The entire area is open. It has wooden floors with a single oval area rug in front of the fireplace and TV.
I found the sound to be exceptionally clear and clean, without distortion or unevenness. I can tell a definite difference between the TV speakers and the BDV300 speakers. The BDV300 sound seems more spacious. It fills the room without blowing you away. The sound has more fullness to it than the TV speakers.
I have not tried it at full volume. I have never felt the need to do so. I have watched two musical DVDs, a Mary Chapin Carpenter concert and the 10th anniversary recording of Les Miserables. In both cases the music sounded beautiful and clear. You could hear all of nuances of the voices and the words of the songs were distinct and clear.
If you want strong bass that shakes the room, I am not sure this is the system for you. The bass is there but it is blended in with the other sounds. I am sure I can adjust it for greater effect. However, I am currently running the system at default values.
As for the lack of an S-air wireless cartridge, as mentioned by the reviewer above.Read more ›
-->It is a complete package....it has a blu ray player, Ipod docking station, and the regular 5.1 channel sound system.
--> It comes with a sound calibration unit. What this basically does is you set all your speakers around you where you want them installed and then set the calibration unit at the place where you sit to watch your TV, like your couch....and then the calibration unit will tell you if your speakers are optimally arranged and will help you finalize the exact position of your speakers around you to give you optimal effect. This feature was really helpful...
--> It upscales image to 1080p
--> It has the same XMB system that sony features. This makes life very easy...trust me...also it syncs with your Sony TV and you can use 1 remote for both systems
--> It has internet capability....and very easy to use as well...just connect a Ethernet cable to it and you can browse HD content over the web using your remote as a keypad.
--> Ipod docking station is very helpful since we have 2 ipods, 2 iphones...all our music is on them, so you can connect them directly to your HT system and listen to music.
--> 1000 W of total power output gives you really good sound...unless you plan to start a recording studio or something....this system will be perfect for good sound
--> Most irritable is the speaker cable length.....my rear speakers barely reach behind my sofa if i run the wires around the walls....in other systems, even though the cables may be short, you can still buy a longer 16gauge cable and run it around. In this system, the ends that go into the blu ray player are soldered into a plastic connector.Read more ›
The only disappointment was that I didn't realize when it bought it that in order to use the S-Air function, you actually need TWO things - an S-Air receiver ($90)and an S-Air transmitter ($50). I initially thought only the transmitter was needed and bought it, but the receiver is also needed to connect to the rear speakers. Spending an additional $150 beyond the cost of the system wasn't an option for me, so I'm returning the transmitter. That is more my fault for not understanding, but Sony doesn't exactly do a great job communicating what all is needed either.
