But I can say that this does sound good to my ears. The sounds is clear with minimal hiss. It plays well with my Sony tv (kdl55nx810). I really like the fact that it tells my tv to turn off its crappy speakers as the systems speakers are starting.
1. Using my Directv remote, I can do a turn all off and it will turn of the dtv receiver, the television and the audio receiver.
2. Great clear sound for the money
3. Easy set up and installation. Sony has taken some of the "guess work" out of the process and it was easy to do. I took my sweet time, but you could easily be up and running in a matter of 15 minutes. I actually enjoyed the testing of the speakers using the provided microphone. I wouldn't go so far as to say it was cool, but it was neat.
4. Excellent picture quality for the blu-rays. I already own a Sony blu-ray player and the audio system is on par in regards to picture quality.
5. Sufficient imputs. Not needing to connect a blu-ray player basically opens up one hdmi imput. I can, though I don't, run the directv receiver through the audio receiver and a ps3 or xbox 360. So it isn't a ton of inputs, but it is more than I need.
6. Works well with optical cable out from the tv. I run all of my devices to my tv and then the audio out to the audio receiver. It works fine and there isn't any lag.
7. Wireless speakers were easy to install and I actually like their setup. I have a multitude of wifi or 3g/4g devices (2 mobile phones, 1 tablet, 2 laptops, etc.) near the speakers and I haven't heard any interference or feedback.Read more ›
- The front tower speakers are great for not requiring separate speaker stands.
- The A/V receiver is compact (compared to most standalone receivers).
- Audio setup is easy and very accurate
- All the passthroughs allow you to eliminate wires over a normal setup
The big negative on this system is the lack of plug and play with Xbox360 and my Comcast cable box.
- With the Xbox 360, if you want to pass the audio/video through this A/V receiver you must make a number of settings changes on the Xbox and the Sony receiver for it to work. This took me about 1.5 hours to figure out
- With the Comcast cable box, you will not be able to pass the video through the Sony A/V receiver. This is due to something with HDCP between the Comcast box, the A/V receiver. You will need to run the HDMI for video directly from the Comcast box to your TV, then run Optical Audio from the Comcast box to the A/V receiver. This makes switching between TV, Xbox, and BD/DVD more involved.
Before buying, I would check your cable box and with your cable company to ensure this will work seamlessly. I will be buying a TiVO to get around this issue. I would also highly suggest buying a programmable universal remote such as the Logitech Harmony One.
EDITED REVIEW 6/28/2012: I returned this unit due to the fact it cannot accept a surround sound signal over HDMI from a Surround Sound source (i.e Dolby Digital 5.Read more ›
I've had this system for 6 months, and from day 1 my Toshiba TV and this system were in a fighting match to see who could control the system!? I tried disabling every interface toggle switch I could find in the software on both the TV and Blu-ray player, and there was NO rhyme or reason to whether you were going to get system sound, or whether the player was going to go nuts and endlessly reboot!
I finally had to resort to:
1. Cut the Blu-ray player on FIRST.
2. Do NOT turn on the TV.
3. Eject a DVD, then insert and let system do it's thing.
4. Do NOT turn on the TV until it's had time to lock in?
5. Now you can turn on the TV...maybe!
Doing the above still did not guarantee the quickest, easiest, fastest way to get the system up and running without the player going into endless reboots, etc.
Before installing this system, I had the current top of the line Sony Soundbar, and it gave no such problems.
My first software update (I've been checking/waiting!) finally came in a few days ago.
So far (knock on wood), it appears the software update has fixed the problem I was having with the TV/player butting heads.
Now it doesn't seem to make any difference what I turn on first, or in what order - operation/software now seems to be stable!
