Top customer reviews
1.) The receiver does not decode Dolby True HD or Master DTS HD. HOWEVER, the receiver accepts LPCM signals. So, if your Blu-Ray player can send an LPCM signal and it has onboard decoders for those codes (and I believe they all do), then you can still experience everything Dolby True HD and Master DTS HD has to offer. If you're lost at this point, I'll put it this way. If you have a PS3 and this sound system, you're getting the full "HD" sound offered by Blu-Ray discs. Just make sure your PS3 is set to send Blu-Ray audio via LPCM, not Bitsreaming. Also, you need to connect your PS3 with HDMI to make this happen.
2.) The sound from this system is excellent. 1000 watts is plenty of power for your typical home theater. In fact, it's more watts than most home theater systems on the market currently offer. In my experience, a good rule of thumb is "more watts the better". This is true even you don't plan on cranking up the volume.
3.) The rear speakers on this system are not automatically wireless. That is, this system is CAPABLE of wirelessly transmitting to the rear speakers, but in order to do this, you need to purchase a transmitter to plug into the back of the receiver and an amplifier for the rear speakers. Sony calls this system AIR. So, in case it isn't clear, this system is only "wireless ready". I haven't purchased the transmitter and the amp needed, but installation looks like it would be very simple. It's nice to have that option in the future.
The only downside to this system, as I see it, is that the remote is overly complicated. Lots of buttons and I only seem to use about 8 of them. If my home theater had more Sony BRAVIA compenents, then maybe all of the extra buttons would be of more use. Overall, however, the bad remote is definitely not a dealbraker. The positives of this system greatly outweigh this one minor negative.
I bought this for an office in my house so I was looking for something small, cheap and high quality. There's a combination that you don't find often. You certainly do here though.
The receiver itself is quite small as are the speakers. Setup was very easy. Each speaker cable has a color coded connector so it's pretty hard to get wrong. The length of cable for the front 3 speakers is fine though I had to add some extra for the rear speakers.
The main selling point for me was the fact that this unit has 3 HDMI ins. It allows me to connect my cable box, Mac Mini and matching Sony Blu Ray player and switch between them very easily. I found no other system in this price range that has the diverse ins and outs that this has.
One thing that concerned me was whether or not the remote codes would work with my Verizon Fios box. None of the built in Sony codes worked, but the auto scan feature found a matching code pretty quickly and it works great. It so nice to only have to use one remote 95% of the time.
I was pleasantly surprised by the sound of this system. I'm not saying it's going to please the serious audiophiles out there, but for its given purpose, it's excellent. I would actually say that the surround decoding is supperior to the far more expensive system I have attached to my primary tv setup.
The only knock I can give this thing is that it has very few physical buttons or knobs. Almost everything has to be done with the remote. This, in and of itself, is fine. It makes setup a bit of a headache though. There's lots of drilling through menus to find what you're looking for. You should only need to do this once though and the menus are logically organized - just time consuming to sift through.
Overall, for $199 shipped, I really couldn't be happier. I would recommend this system to anyone. It would even work fine as a primary system as long as you understand that its not that $1000 system you've had your eye on.
