I own a new 40" Sony Bravia LCD that I hooked this system up to. I was very impressed with its sound and its wide range of features for the price! However, there were a couple areas that I feel need to be addressed.

PROS:
- Excellent sound, especially the Movie DCS mode which adds a ton of depth to any movie
- Easy setup
- Excellent integration with a Sony TV. I can fully control my LCD from the receiver remote after hooking up the HDMI cables.
- Full HDMI switching makes initial connection and switching between sources a snap. I can switch between cable and my PS3 with 1 button.
- Wide range of format handling, including Linear PCM.
- Wide range of sound modes.
- No color distortion issues when switching between HDMI sources. This seemed to be a problem in older models.

CONS:
- I found the bass to be a little lacking due to the fact that the subwoofer is passive. I swapped the included one out with this: Yamaha YST-SW216BL Advanced YST II Front-Firing Active Subwoofer and it brought the sound to a whole new level!
- Uses proprietary speaker wire connections. Sony makes it very hard to swap the subwoofer like I described previously because the receiver uses proprietary plugs for the speakers instead of generic speaker wire attachments. The system comes with 4 thin speaker wires with plugs to the receiver on one end, and bare wire on the other to hook up to the satellite speakers. However, the subwoofer's is HARD WIRED, so it can't be detached at all. What's worse is that Sony only sells their speaker wires in packs of 5, for a whopping $55.

As someone who was in the process of purchasing my first blu-ray player I was looking to upgrade my older Sony surround sound system as well. I was looking for a couple of things in a new system: One, that it had plenty of HDMI inputs and two, that it had a high-quality sound for the price point.

As for the most important item, the sound, this is a great system. People have said it is like listening to a $500-1000 system. I don't know if it sounds as good as a $1000 system, but I would say it does sound wonderful like a $500-700 system so for the price it can't be beat. The highs sound very clear and crisp and the bass is deep with depth without losing too much 'punch' or getting too 'muddy'. The only minor issue I have with sound is that when dialogue gets loud the center speaker (on rare occasions) 'flinches' and has the slightest sound like feedback. It could be the case itself vibrating as I have it sitting against the T.V. base/stand so this could be the problem as well.

Out of the box the system takes a little time to set up (as does any surround system with the speakers, etc). This system looks sleek and is identical to the companion blu ray player I purchased to go with it; they have a matching black color, are matching in size and are similar in faceplate size and in overall sleek design. The receiver for this unit is about half the height and depth as my old Sony one, leaving me more space to add other components into my rack.

The speaker wires are thin and the speakers each have proprietary connections going into the receiver but it sounds so good I don't feel any need to replace the wires so this is a moot point for me.

When I recently bought a new Sony 40" LCD TV I discovered the TV speakers were better than my old cheapie surround sound system. I then bought this Sony HTSS360. I'm a long way from an audio expert but I know good sound when I hear it and this system has it all the way from the high to the low pitched sounds. I can now hear even faint sounds/sound effects I never knew existed with my old sound system. Between the new TV and this surround sound system all my existing DVD's are like watching all new movies. It may be a little on the subjective side but my movies appear to have better color and clarity than when the feed was direct from my DVD player. Very easy to set up and play using one remote with the Bravia Sync. In my case just two HDMI cables, sat box and DVD player, to the receiver and one HDMI out to the TV, easy.

I upgraded from a 9 year old AIWA 5.1 Dolby Surround System that couldn't handle the HDMI Cable inputs. The old system cost me about $400 and included a powered Subwoofer and the 5 speakers. This new Sony is 1000W, but the speakers are 3 Ohms (as opposed to the 8 Ohms on most home system speakers). So even though the Sony system is twice the wattage of my original system, the sound does not fill the room as well as my Aiwa.

After ordering the Sony, I experimented with an Optical cable from my Panasonic Viera HDTV to the AIWA and was happy with the sound quality. My worst fear was that the new system would sound worse than what I already had, and sure enough that was the case.

Don't get me wrong, it doesn't sound bad. But if you have an older surround system without HDMI that you are happy with, I would recommend using an Optical cable (which reportedly has sound quality loss compared to HDMI) rather than upgrade to this system.

On the positive side, the HTSS360 does work nicely in my common setup of Cable box, Blu Ray, and TV. I have the Cable box and Blu Ray connected via HDMI to the HTSS360. Then the HTSS360 is connected to my TV with an HDMI Cable. I also have the cable box connected to my TV's Component inputs and the Optical Audio Out of the TV connected to the Optical Audio input of the HTSS360. I'm not sure if those last 2 connections are even necessary, but I made them due to other reviews that indicated the HTSS360 does not pass through the signal when it is not on, and a note in the Manual that mentioned the optical cable connection. The former point was a big negative for me as I don't want my kids touching the home theater every time they want to watch TV. In any case, the net result of these connections is rather spectacular.
