I have had tons a big dollar component systems in my life. Never could warm up to a satellite system. They could not compete with a big box speaker. I was at a store and stopped to look at a bose system. Not a big fan of bose either. But it sounded nice, about $600 for 2 speakers and a sub. I decided to look around. Glad I did. I got this system for $250 on e-bay. I was worried about the cheap price. Totally impressed with this system. No bose can compete with 5 speakers and a sub. Handles TV, Radio,I-Pod. Bose only handled the TV. I am using my old powered sub with this system. But the one that came with was just fine too.
This is an excellent sounding system with lots of features I haven't even used yet, mainly because of some of my old existing equipment.
Only one little issue. You cant use the on screen display unless your TV has HDMI OUT ! And it has to support ARC, for sound throughput via one HDMI cable.
I just recently bought a brand new 32 inch SONY Bravia LCD TV, which is also an excellent set, so this sound system I thought would be a perfect match. To my dismay the TV does not have the HDMI out from the TV nor support the Audio Return Channel,(ARC), function. But you really don't need it.
You can use an optical cable for sound with full functionality just the same. And the receiver has its own display for its settings. It would probably be easier with it displaying on the TV, so for what its worth, it would have been nice.
Oh yeah, the FM Stereo radio is an added plus also. Programming via the remote was a bit tricky having to use the shift button to use the multi-function keys on the remote several times during the process.
But you know what, this system kicks ass and rocks!
So do not be afraid to but it.
The product was a gift and I am very happy with the system. The sound quality is great. The easy to follow installation instructions were simple and user friendly.
True DTS sound is like being at the movies. All sounds are defined and realistic.
I know I have a home theater system that will provide us the enjoyment of home viewing and listening to Bluray movies as if we were at the movie theaters.
Recently purchased a 60" Sony flat screen tv for the man cave, the sound was decent but I needed a little more low end sound. Wanted to have a matching theater setup but the funds were limited. This system has the best bang for your buck. It syncs with the Sony tv well and set-up was a breeze. Has a auto calibrate feature which make speaker adjustment flawless!
this is sony!!!! what else would you expect? i was a little hesitant being that its an refurbished item but when i set it up(easy to do by the way) I was amazed. the quality, crisp sound makes you feel as if youve paid top dollar and professionally installed system. this is truly worth the price.
It's good system and definitely will recommend it! Like the simplicity of the product and style. Good sound and it seems to upgrade the picture quality more when connected to the system.
Actually, this is not the Blu-ray Playing System,
It CAN connect to Blu-ray and the TV, I was mis-understood and thought this is with Blu-Ray Player.
But that was my mistake,
System is pretty good for that money, I had to purchase
Blu-Ray Player to add this system.
This model did not have the blu-ray player so I don't know why it it is the description. The player is an additional purchase. Otherwise the sound is very good for what I would consider a mini-system. I installed it in our motorhome and we are very pleased with the sound quality for that space.
Installation and set-up was a snap. Setting up the surround was quick and simple, as far as the distance each speaker was from the center of the couch where we usually sit. Great sound and picture quality!
junk absolute junk i got screwed when I bought this.It is not a bluray player is not.I wouldnt recomend to anyone.
