Received the Sony HT-6800DP 5-Disc Progressive Scan Home Theater System on Tuesday, and spent a couple of days/evenings setting it up. The tricky part was mounting the speakers, but that can be solved with purchasing the correct wall mounts first. Then it was off to the store again to get the right component cables and optical connections.

The box includes a standard quality set of connections, but I recommend an immediate cable and stereo wire upgrade. Of course, this adds to the overall purchase price, but its worth the extra investment and the homework necessary to get what you need for a great picture and awesome sound from the start.

Again, the Sony HT-6800DP 5-Disc Progressive Scan Home Theater System is an excellent buy. The separate five DVD/CD changer is a convenient plus too. And forget negatives about Sony in the review previous to this one. This home theater system goes far beyond expectations and performance with the power necessary to back it up (when compared to other brands and models straight from the box). Sony still delivers quality products. Just be patient when a little more assembly seems to be required. Again, it is worth the time and the added effort to put the system together right the first time.

Just purchased one this weekend. The system overall is really nice. It is easy to setup and the sound is really good. The only problem I have is that it isn't as loud as I would have liked. I put it in a very large room and the sound gets lost with all the space. If you have a large room i would recommend at least a 1000watt system. But even in the large room it sounds pretty good. I'm not disappointed in my purchase.

I purchased this system before Christmas 2005. Attention audiophiles. Ignore this system. I used to be an audiophile when I could hear well. I am a retired electronics engineer, and I know this stuff.

I'll take it a section at a time and then treat the entire system.

Speakers: They are adequate for a small room at moderate sound levels. You will not feel the room shake with super bass. The subwoofer is adequate for the seven speaker setup. Remember folks, you paid less than 600 bucks for this. It delivers a pretty good bang for the buck. Bose (or similar) speakers would improve the system a lot. They are very efficient and well engineered. They are not cheap!

Amplifer: It is rated at about 160 watts at 10% total harmonic distortion (THD). That is very high for today's solid state amplifiers. It doesn't matter though because the speaker distortion at that power level would be much higher. Remember folks, that power is split up between six speakers. The sub woofer has its own amplifier.

Preamp: Well, those things are sort of like 8-track tapes today, history. Everything is digitally processed now. Play with the various autio settings. Play with the menus. You won't find a treble or bass knob. Everything (almost) is menu driven.

Inputs: These include video and audio inputs. You can name the inputs so they appear on the digital box display when you select one (front panel or with the remote control), or you can leave them at their default settings.

Outputs: Many of them, but not enough for me. I would like to see more "line" outputs from each major subsystem. Note: This system is "cheap" because Sony sells a lot of them. If you want high end gear, buy it. Sony sells it too.

Very economical and a good value for the price. Assembly is simple, and instructions cover the basics. Too bad my ex-wife took the system with her when she left.

I must say I have had a very, very bad experience with this paticular home theater system and Sony. I can't actually rate the system because I have yet to use it. I received this system the end of October and after spending several hours putting it together was only able to play two DVD's. After that I couldn't get a picture. I then spent several hours over the phone with their help desk and after we exhausted every possible solution I was told to send it back, which I did. When I finally got it back I hooked it up and it still did not work - again had to spend considerable time exhausting possible solutions on the phone with the help desk. I was asked to send it back yet again and also told I would not be getting a new DVD player but a returned or refurbished one. I find this unacceptable and due to the fact I have had to waste my time and money I would NEVER purchase any Sony product from here on out.
