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, it's 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 don't 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.Read more ›
I think that the user interface is a little slow and wonky. It is trying to be like the PS3's XMB but there is simply no comparison.
My biggest gripe, and only reason why it is not a 5 in my eyes, is the design of the unit itself. Most home theater in a box systems (which is essentially what this is) come in the form factor that can sit right on top or your cable box or slide nicely into an entertainment unit. This receiver is so tall that I would bet it wont fit into 95% of the shelves in an entertainment unit. While the form factor itself is "sexy," I would trade aesthetics in a heartbeat to have the device fit cleanly in my entertainment unit. The ports themselves are also a pain in the but to get to because you have to run the cords a strange way.
Aside from what I consider to be design flasw, the system itself sounds great and I would still recommend it.
I bought this item for $339.00 in March of 2012 in a very rare non-Amazon purchase. The item was $399.00 on Amzon and was $339.00 through a vendor selling on [...] Google the product and perhaps you will find it. Given that 2012 Home Theaters In a Box (HTIBs) will be out in a matter of weeks, I was surprised to see this priced $100.00 higher on Amazon one week later. ( Perhaps units available directly from Amazon ran out).
The BDV-F7 represents a trade-off. You give up some sound quality in exchange for a very good looking machine and avoiding the need for a larger number of components and speakers. At $ 339.00 essentailly I was paying $200.00 more than buying a 3d Blu-Ray player. For that $200.00 I received a receiver/amplifier build into an integrated unit with a 3d Blu-Ray Player, a subwoofer, and a sound bar. For $200.00 that is a lot of stuff in my book. If the price was $500.00, I would skip this system either buy a separate Blue Ray Player and an Onkyo Surround sound package or wait a month an get a 2012 3d Panasonic or Samsung HTIB.
As for the BDV-F7:
What I liked: The Blue Ray Player is wall mountable. This is one of a very few Blu Ray Players where the disc is in a vertical orientation. It loads just like and Imac. There is no tray and the disk goes in with the label side facing the user. The picture quality is great. I have not tried the internet connectivity. My BDV-F7 is attached to a 55" Panasonic GT-30 which also is web enabled so the internet might be a little redundant. I also liked that there are just two sound units, the soundbar and the subwoofer. Running cables across the small room we set up as a home theatre and guest bedroom did was not appealing to me.Read more ›

This works for me because I did not want a lot of extra pieces. This one incorporates the sound, a radio and DVD player with only the 3 pieces. Love it.Published on February 10, 2013 by Eileen
