Top Customer Reviews
Great 5.1 functionality.
I have mine teamed with a 46" Samsung C6300 LED LCD and a Sony Playstation 3. I love the fact that I'm down to one HDMI input feeding my new TV for all input sources. . .they all go through the Sony HT-SF470.
Complaints: When I bought the product, I assumed that the rear speakers would work wirelessly without an additional purpose. Note, that to use the S-AIR functionality with this product, one needs to buy a transmitter to plug into the HT-SF470 receiver and a receiver for your powered speakers that get served. I also agree with the previous reviewer about how the system lacks a graphical menu. Finally, and perhaps most needlessly frustrating, I hate that Sony doesn't leave you enough wire for their rear speakers. There's nothing worse that to give up on an optimal setup because you don't have enough wire. Also, Sony uses speaker wire with proprietary connectors(more costly and hard to find upgrades).
Still a good value for the price. . .beware that they attempt to suck you in to future purchases by giving you a nearly complete system.
1. Sony WAHT-SA20 (rear amplifier/receiver for wireless rear speakers) ~ $135 from Amazon.
2. Sony EZWT100 (S-Air Transmitter, plugs into the rear of your new receiver) - $20 from Ebay. Buy it from ebay, you'll pay ~ $120 on Amazon!
I've had the system for about a week and so far I'm impressed. It's everything I set out to purchase... an AFFORDABLE, home theater-in-a-box. If I were looking for super high-end audiophile-type components, of course I wouldn't be looking for any theater in a box setup. And some day I will be searching for high-end separate components to build a good theater, but for now I just wanted a no-fuss.. out of the box system that sounded great and had multiple HDMI ports.
First off, if you are currently listening to movies through your television set... just about ANY home stereo theater system will be a major improvement... I don't care how good you say your TV speakers are, it's just a fact.
For me it came down to either this system, a similar Onkyo system, or the Sony 370. I'm glad I went with this system. I've watched a few movies on it both from DVD, Blu Ray, and HD Movies On-Demand from Comcast (hooked up via HDMI from my cable box). They all sound terrific. Strong bass, good wireless surround sound, great volume of dialogue through the center channel.
Some people don't like the proprietary Sony plugs for the speaker cables, but I actually like them in this system for a few reasons. First, they clip in, so you know they are secure, second, they are color coded.. no chance of getting the channels crossed.Read more ›
Physical Assembly: Sony is known for quality electronics, not necessarily easy assembly. For this system, wiring the speakers through the poles and base can be a little confusing and the instructions for this are pretty horrible. Not a huge deal, however - just get through it.
Electronic Assembly: Wiring up and calibrating the unit is pretty foolproof - Speaker cables are color-coded and the auto calibration is very simple - The manual's warning makes it sound like the calibration will cause your neighbor's china to fall off the shelf but this is not the case and it's only 30 seconds of non-continuous sound.
Syncing Devices: I currently have a "slim" (Bravia Sync-enabled) PS3 and a Sony W-Series (KDL-40W4100) attached to the receiver. The Bravia sync works pretty well but some functions are strange. The receiver's remote has lots of BD/DVD controls but you have to press a "TV" button at the same time to use them with a PS3 (it looks like the signal passes from the TV to the PS3 via the receiver), and some don't work at all. Non-syncable devices I have attached are a Roku Player (via HDMI) and an Apple Airport Express router (via TOSlink). I have not tried out any S-Air accessories but plan to in the near future.
General functionality: I don't know what cave Sony is living in, but some things are simply stupid. To start, all the device names are hardcoded (SAT/Cable, BD, DVD, SACD/CD, etc).Read more ›
