It's now broken. Just 3 years into owning this system. It display's the message: "Protector - Push Power". After looking in the manual and attempting the fixes indicated there (check speaker cables and vents, neither of which appeared to have a problem)and contacting tech support, who indicated to unplug the system for 30 mins. It is still not working. I am quite dissapointed, as this was not an inexpensive system. I am not inclined to pack this up, ship it and then pay to have it repaired and shipped back. I would rather put that $ into another and hopefully more reliable system.
On doing some research for the error message on the internet, I see others have had this problem and apparently did not receive any solution to the problem, other than sending it in for repairs.
At this point, I would recommend NOT BUYING this system, as it appears to have an inherent flaw.
I just bought this system a couple of weeks ago and am very happy with it.
It's especially good for those with limited space and/or who want a limited visual impact from their sound system. Which were top considerations in my choice. It's a nice system, with only a couple exceptions (*See comments below...)
First, the control module, with DVD player is very compact (a little over 8" X 8" X4") and has a clear display (although, it would have been nice if the numbers and words displayed were a little bigger... minor issue). It has many adjustments that can be made for different sound "fields", ie: DTS, Dolby II, etc. and can also be connected to your i-Pod or Computer, with connector modules available through the Sony On-line store.Read more ›
The sound is decent but cannot justify the price. I would rate it comparable to home theater systems in the $400 range.
Here's a bit more technical if you are connecting to a non-compatible Sony Bravia. The best way to connect is through optical output(Toslink). However, optical on Sony TVs are only available when you have a digital signal directly from the cable. That means the ones getting HD signal from a cable box or Satellite box are out of luck. I have also own a Samsung TV that outputs optical regardless of input signal. Since I'm trying to connect to a Sony TV, a RCA is my only option which defeats the purpose of having a great audio system. I have called the Sony 800 support and confirmed this. Sigh...I put more info at the bottom if you're trying to connect another device such as PS3 or Cable box via Optical sync if you have RCA connected to the TV.
So, if you're looking for a space saver, this is it! Otherwise, you may be better off with lower end model. This is particularly true if you're trying to connect to a non-Bravia Sync Sony TV.
P.S. Here's more on connecting an additional device via Optical in addition to RCA. RCA port and Optical port are shared under the TV mode of the theater system. That means that you can only connect one of them. If there's optical signal coming in(in my case, PS3, it will override the RCA one(in my case, cable TV). Essentially, you're losing one or the other incoming port.Read more ›
On the downside, setup was rediculous. I have a Sony Bravia TV and a Sony Vaio Media Center PC. I had to run the HDMI out of the TV, into the PC and the Digital Audio from the PC to the system. The iPod cradle was equally troublesome as I had to route the Audio into the system and the Video into the TV.
Be aware: There is no HDMI Input, only output. Great for someone that doesn't have a lot of AV equipment or to be put into a small room. Onboard DVD is fine, haven't hooked up the AM, FM or cable (cable routes to my PC anyway).

Sony makes one of the best systems in my opinion. Great product, fast service and in beautiful shape. Love it.Published on December 26, 2012 by Lynn M. Luntz
