I purchased the HT-SS380 at the store after realizing that the HT-SS370 had been discontinued. I assumed that since the systems shared a common look and nomenclature that they would have the same features (with the added 3-D functionality in the HT-SS380). I was wrong.

DIFFERENCES BETWEEN THE HT-SS370 AND HT-SS380 SYSTEMS:
While the HT-SS380 does have 3-D capabilities, some other notable features are missing. The HT-SS370 had options for purchasing additional components in order to add wireless rear speaker capability. The HT-SS380 has no wireless expandability options. The HT-SS370 speakers came with wiring that featured proprietary connectors on one end for connecting to the receiver, but the speakers themselves featured standard wire clips, making them available to use with any other system that featured a standard clip design. The HT-SS380 speakers, on the other hand, still feature the proprietary clips on one end, but the other end is firmly connected to the speaker and is not able to be removed. Therefore in order to use the speakers with any other system, the wires would have to be cut and spliced to additional wire. The HT-SS380 does however contain a iPod/iPhone dock, whereas that component had to be purchased separately for the HT-SS370.

PROS:
The HT-SS380 has great sound for a minimal price. The speakers are plenty loud when it comes to filling a moderate-size room with crisp sound, and the passive sub-woofer puts out bass that you can feel. Sound quality is one of the most important aspects of the system for me, and so that's why I applied a 4-star rating instead of a 3-star rating. The system as a whole is very sleek and stylish.

Not bad for price. Beware speaker connectors are proprietary and the lengths included are not exactly generous, particularly for rear surround. good luck finding extensions from Sony - tried without success. i think it is 18 gauge but even Sony support could not confirm gauge but it is pretty darn thin and btw, the speakers are a bit on the cheap (1000 watts won't do you much good with cheap speakers) so you are mainly paying for the receiver.

Throughout the years I haven't been a huge fan of Sony products as they've always been overpriced in comparison to other companies that offer the same products with more features at a lower price...but after buying a refurb Sony 46" Bravia and this home theater system, I think my eyes have been opened!

Now sure the items are still a bit on the expensive side, but how amazingly well they "play nice" together is worth it (just like Apple products).

The sound is fantastic and the Bravia Sync is AMAZING as you just plug in the HDMI cables and it's completely set up with the TV recognizing that you'll be using the sound system for sound instead of the TV speakers with a lot more beyond that!

Even when it comes to my PS3 it rocks as both the TV & Sound system remotes work with the PS3's DVD/Blu Ray playing functions, so it eliminated the need for me to buy a seperate Harmony remote piece just to get it to work (I might even sell my Harmony remote all together the Sony remotes work so well).

All in all, if your looking for a good lower end priced home theater system with some great features, I'd think you would very pleased with the HT-SS380!

Upon opening the box, I first noticed the system was sleek & attractive. At first glance, the speakers seemed on the small side, but I found that they pack a lot of sound in a small package. I have a reasonably sized living room... about (10' x 20') & these are plenty powerful. In fact, when I turned the volume up all the way it nearly shook the entire house (I live in a duplex), I keep the volume around 17 which is plenty loud, but the system goes all the way up to 50. The subwoofer is small but powerful, it's small size fits right in with my entertainment area. The features are pretty cool, there are about 12 settings for sports, concert, cinema, gaming, news etc.. The iPod dock is cool too. There are plenty of hook ups on the back to plug in multiple systems. So why the 3 star review? As the other reviews have mentioned, the problem is that the speakers that go in the back of the room have a limited amount of cable attached to them & therefore your speakers may not reach where you want. The wire is attached directly to the back of the speaker, there is no way to remove it without damaging the speaker and on the other end is a proprietary plug. This means the plug is manufactured by sony & is unique to sony (as opposed to being an hdmi, rca or optical cable which are wildly available almost anywhere). Sony does not make extension cables for their plugs, so the only way to extend the wire is to cut it & splice in more wire, which will void your warranty. I'm actually a bit shocked that Sony has no remedy for this as I'm sure a lot of people have run into this problem.

TL;DR

Pros: Attractive, small yet powerful, plenty of features + ability to hook a lot of systems into the receiver.

Cons: Limited length of speaker wire & inability to lengthen it without voiding the warranty.
