This review is from: Sony HTCT550W 3D Sound Bar Home Theater System with Wireless Subwoofer (Discontinued by Manufacturer) (Electronics)
I am not an audiophile by any means and I have no complaints about the quality. It has more range than expected from the bar and the subwoofer is great too when boosted up. I won't miss my 5:1 system that I subbed out for this when I saw the price drop.
What really impresses me with it is the compatibility and versatility of the system. It is a top of the line source selector for HDMI that will keep you current for years to come and the optical input from your TV lets you use all your old components that you don't want to give up on. The wireless connect to the subwoofer along with the slim design of the bar lets you incorporate a stylish unobtrusive speaker system into your room. I think it is a great system for a person that is looking to slim down their entertainment system without losing much in quality.
Possibly, many of the complaints about this system are coming from people that don't know how to use HDMI with a receiver. Your output device settings are just as important as input, and you could be losing audio channels because you have the wrong settings going out.
