The home theater system has a 1000W5 5.1 channel. A built-in wireless stream of movies, music, and more. Standard DVDs to near HD quality are 3D enabled.
👤This has worked perfectly for us, and we have loved having it. It has started acting weird in the last few months. The red lines on our TV were shown in the video feed. The other devices we hooked up were clear and we were able to rule out the TV. We continued watching with the occasional red lines, but then half the screen will flash white. The flashing white is annoying. The new AmazonBasics HDMI is showing the red lines and white flashes that we thought the SONY brand was bad. Since we love our HD TV, we had to switch to the yellow video cable in order to watch it. I don't know what the warranty is for purchases on Amazon, but if anyone has any thoughts, I'd appreciate them. We've only had 2 years. Is it necessary to fix the HDMI port on the Bluray? How? I'm a little disappointed that this product lasted only two years for us, and we don't put a lot of wear and tear on it.
👤My husband got it early so I bought this for him. It's great. The hulu and netflix "apps" are great. We had a computer that was connected to our tv via an audio cable, but we didn't have a dvd player. For the ease of use, we have yet to go back to the computer to watch the shows that are not available via huluplus on the device. It has a long speaker cable and was easy to set up. The sound quality is what I like the most. I've been spoiled in that area because I was the daughter of a guy who worked in that field. Our previous set up made me angry. It was hard to hear the voices at low volumes, but by the time you heard them, it was too loud for our neighbors and not great for our daughter. This has a night mode that adjusts the sub to a lower volume, and even at a quiet volume you don't lose sound quality. If you don't use quick start up, the home screen won't load until you adjust it to quick start up. We love the idea of being able to listen to music without having to move our computer or ipods around the house.
👤This part has nothing to do with the product. I paid for overnight shipping and it showed up three days later. The overnight cost was returned to me. I think this was not the fault of Amazon, but more the carrier (FedEx), so I wanted to mention it here. If you are using this system in a large room, you will be disappointed as it is not the loudest system out there. My living room is small, so it works well. For me, cutting and splicing the speaker wires in my living room was not a big deal because my room is wired for surround sound. It takes a long time to turn on this system, so maybe it's normal, but I have never bought a system like this before. Changing a system setting to allow for quicker start up has increased the speed of start up, but it still takes a while. The built in apps are great, but it's a little overwhelming with the choices I have in the apps. Most of them are free. The ability to stream Amazon prime videos over it was one of the reasons I chose this unit. I pay for the prime service and now I can watch the videos they offer over something larger than my iPad. I was able to control the unit with an app on my phone. It works well. I was able to program my Directv remote to run the volume control without changing it. I can leave it on the satellite side of things and still use the unit. The display is small and not very bright. I would not mind it being a bit brighter, but I know this would be a bonus to some people. I don't like that the unit doesn't have a resume feature that allows you to play DVD or blu-ray. If you turn it off while you watch a movie, it won't start playing where you left off. It starts at the beginning. If there is a setting to change that, I have not found it.
The ultimate home theater upgrade has a 3.1ch engine. There are seven sound modes for enhanced movies, music, gaming, news and sport. Voice enhancement for clarity. The BLUETOOTH streaming has built-in wi-fi and is easy to use. High-resolution audio is possible. You can use your Amazon connected device to stream music, online radio, and podcasts. Just ask.
👤The version is called the TL;DR version. It's worth every penny. Buy the rear speakers as well. This is my favorite thing. You don't know what you're missing. People who love audio but aren't building dedicated theaters, people with reasonably-sized rooms and apartments, and people who love "that movie sound" are the best for. It's great for the everyday person who appreciates sound but doesn't want a complicated setup. Not best for large spaces, those who want huge amounts of volume, and those expecting tower-level performance out of a soundbar. I am Sony's perfect test mule, a home theater enthusiast, audio snob, and proud member of the "Soundbars are nonsense and your speakers should be wired" camp. I was going to jump on it when it popped up with all the buzzwords, but it runs 3.1. I'm a bit crazy as I seek out things to prove me wrong and learn. This could be my masterpiece, and boy was it. You will be hard-pressed to find much bang for your buck. You're still staring down a sound system that costs over $1300 with the rear channels, but "Little" is relative. Unless you're willing to go down the dark rabbit hole of dedicated theaters with the right speakers in the right places, you won't find a better experience. SETUP setup requires a few visits to the manual. I have a 4K TV that requires a few changes in settings, but the manual walks you through them. It's pretty plug-and-play. The "easy setup" wizards don't need to think about it when speakers pair themselves. It's stupid-simple. Love it. I wanted to make sure it could actually cast audio. I fired up the service on my phone and it was there. I chose a live recording to see what it could do and stopped doing anything for an hour. It's the most generic description I've ever heard. You're there. This is an experience that is not static. You feel like you are at the show when you listen to live recordings. It's beautiful, magical, and addictive. Which leads us to the next question, what does that mean for movies? I thought I should test that and see if it's good. Remember the line about the dog? There are fireworks in this demo. I can't think of a better example than the dog looking at the ceiling. If a dog is confused, they are doing something right. The speakers are so good that the level of immersion is amazing. They're so good at it that it makes me angry that they're doing an injustice to these things. Sound from TV to movies is easy to setup. Watching a few other TV shows and movies made the dog over at the speakers enjoy a saxophone and made everything come to life. It can be hard to balance if you're not into that kind of thing. This doesn't require any tuning on my part and it balances voices and sounds easily. God of War is in a video game mode. This should be the most amazing thing that Sony has to offer -- a Sony TV running a Sony game on a Sony PS4 through a Sony soundbar. I have played video games in a theater before, but this is the first time I have been able to hear sounds. I don't think it's the speakers' fault that some sounds fall flat. I think they aren't rendered with authentic sound and the speakers only replicate what they hear. The smaller sounds sound amazing. Sound effects are not as loud. I think it's harder to say 3.1 equates to 7.1.2. I think it's not the speakers fault. These seem to bend the laws of physics to create a sound that's more realistic and you need to pick up the rear channels. There is a noticeable difference between the rears and the fronts. The sound system doesn't shine without those rear channels. Don't get me wrong, it's still very good, but just throw in the extra money. I have a few gripes about this thing, but they wouldn't deter me from buying it. If you have a smart TV, you still need to keep two remotes. If you use the smart apps on your TV, you can't use the soundbar in a traditional format. It's not a big deal. Since I was old enough to use them, I probably have at least two remotes. I think Sony will change this in the future. It could use more power. It's perfect for my space and your mileage will vary with it. The room it's in has 16' ceilings and 20' x 30' walls. It provides a lot of punch and I think it's a good spot. If you want to fill something bigger, this may not be the system for you. Be honest with yourself, that's a pretty big room. A lot of people get caught up in the wattage game without asking themselves how often they have this thing cranking up to 11. When using a smart TV, it can be difficult to switch from one service to another. Sony could fix the software issues in time. It's a bit of an edge case and doesn't take away from the overall experience. I expected this system to be half marketing hype and it blew me away. It made me believe that sound engines can change the dynamic. It knocks it out of the park because it targets a specific buyer who really appreciates sound but doesn't want to spend a lot of money or time on it. I am grateful. I received it through the Amazon program. Let me know if you find it helpful.

There is a PIN JACK, ETHERNET CONNECTION, HDMI IN/OUT, OPTICAL AUDIO INPUT, and aUSB INPUT. You can stream music from your device with just one touch. A full range bass speaker system. The total power output is 1000W. You can use built-in wi-fi to stream services.
👤I had had a component system for years and was very skeptical after having come from a $795 Receiver/Amp. Very skeptical... The Sony brand name along with the price tag of $300 is not a misprint. I was inspired enough to give it a try. This system is perfect for a small to medium-sized TV/entertainment den/ family room, or maybe 5' bigger both ways. The speakers are wired and all wiring is included, which is a big plus for sound fidelity, and the rear speaker wire connections have about 30' of play IIRC, which was more than enough for my needs. If your room is larger than 20'x30', then you'll need to buy extra speaker wire for the rear speakers, but that is very inexpensive and easily integrated, and of course only important if you need to put the rear speakers immediately along the rear. Someone else wrote that the speakers sounded like a toy. If you set them up correctly, these speakers sound rich, deep, and full--if you hooked them up wrong. The building can be rattled by the clear lows created by the woofer alone. Low frequencies are not over-killed and distorted like they are in some sound systems today. These speakers are designed to reproduce theatrical sound. You can ruin the sound by not knowing what you are doing in setting it up. Sony did a great job of tuning the particulars so that you don't have to. There are no toys here. It has exceeded every expectation I had for an integrated all-in-one system with a total RMS of 1000W, and I was never tempted to return it. Bose taught the world that speakers don't have to be large in order to produce nice or volume sound, and Sony carries on that school of thought in these speakers. The Blue-Ray home entertainment system has all color coding for the non-technical among us. Highly recommended!
👤This product was updated after 1yr1/2. I can't hear anything from this thing because it is a toy for a child. I repeat... Don't waste your money on this. The Sony BDE3100 system has everything you could need for streaming in the 21 century. I brought a smaller Sony box, the "BDP-S3700", which was fine, but didn't have the sound to back up the wonderful visuals from the1080i Blu-Ray player. The 1000 watt surround sound is powerful enough to fit the bill, but how do you make it all happen with a sub woofer? The Sony sub-woofer that came with this system is a joke, so after some research, I ordered the Polk PSW10 Active Sub-Woofer on Amazon for 99 cents. I will revise my review once the sub-woofer arrives.
👤I don't write reviews a lot but felt like I needed to on this product. We bought our first one and it wouldn't work. We have a lot of online services like Amazon Prime. We couldn't play through an entire move or binge watch it all at once. Sony was a sturdy product and we thought it had to be a mistake. Amazon sent a replacement device. It did the same thing. Did we check the internet? Yes. Is it possible toTroubleshoot? Yes. Call the two companies to make sure it wasn't their app. Yes. Did everything we were supposed to do. I should have stayed with the company. Always been a female of the company. Thank you Amazon for fixing it. We now have a surround. It's amazing!
1000 watt over 5 channels. DVD media can be upscaled to a high definition resolution. S-AIR ready is a multi-room technology. I Pod has music and video on it. Digital twin-drive subs for great bass sound.
👤The setup was very easy and the sysyem looks good. The sound quality is good and the passive sub offers more bass than I expected. This system is great for movie lovers who want good sound and ease of operation. The microphone that sets up the individual speaker volume is a must to make sure you get the right sound. The previous posters talked about not getting sound from the tv. There is no way to change the speaker volume manually. Some of those DVD's and shows that are not quite right can't be used with my old component system. I have a Zen mp3 player that I have to plug in through the audio port in the front if I want to use the Ipod connection. It could use more inputs. This system is great for money. The sound quality is great and the operation is easy, I wish the screen was easier to read from across the room. I don't know what mode it was in. If you are looking for an easy to use system, go for it. If you want detailed tunings of your sound, go with the component. I like it, and thats what matters.
👤I am using it in a 28 foot room and it is easy to set up, it is large enough for the room. I wanted to use my TV remote that would control my TV, but Sony support was unwilling to help me with the remote codes, it was difficult to understand and I didn't know how to use it. They were not helpful and their attitude made me feel as if I need service that will come back and bite me. . The front of the receiver is very dim and hard to read, I would not have purchased it if I could have seen it. It looks good, but they didn't supply anything other than the unit, a little pad, and wires to hook it up, so it's not really a problem.
👤When my girlfriend bought me a home theater system, I was a little hesitant, but I was willing to give it a try. We just bought a TV and it works great. We tried a second unit after exchanging the first one because of the problems with the system. It had the same issues. We purchased the system on Amazon because most of the Sony system was out of our price range. It was easy to hook up. The on-screen setting is easy to use. It sounds good out of the box, but there aren't a lot of changes to make. My old Sony system had to be adjusted many times and it became a hassle trying to adjust the system for different media. I found it easy to be better. The sound of movies and sporting events can be heard in the surround. The sound of NASCAR made me want toTrademarkiaTrademarkiaTrademarkiaTrademarkiaTrademarkiaTrademarkiaTrademarkiaTrademarkiaTrademarkiaTrademarkiaTrademarkiaTrademarkiaTrademarkiaTrademarkiaTrademarkiaTrademarkiaTrademarkiaTrademarkiaTrademarkiaTrademarkiaTrademarkiaTrademarkiaTrademarkiaTrademarkiaTrademarkiaTrademarkiaTrademarkiaTrademarkiaTrademarkiaTrademarkiaTrademarkiaTrademarkiaTrademarkiaTrademarkiaTrademarkiaTrademarkiaTrademarkiaTrademarkiaTrademarkiaTrademarkiaTrademarkiaTrademarkiaTrademarkiaTrademarkiaTrademarkiaTrademarkiaTrademarkiaTrademarkiaTrademarkiaTrademarkia The PS3 games are great. The center speaking is clear and the bass is full, so it's easy to hear dialog. Music just sounds so good. I've found that to be true with most surround systems. I would rate this system an 8 out of 10 for sound and value.
Experience the latest in cinematic sound innovation in the comfort of your own home with the Sony CS-Series speakers. The Bookshelf Speaker System of the SSCS5 is 3-way. The speaker of the center channel is a 2-way driver. The SACS9 has a 10 inch Active Subwoofer. The speaker is standing on the floor.
👤Where to start... There is a I'm a pretty good audio engineer, you could say. I've owned high-end headphones for the past 5 years or so and tried to get more involved in the space. It's an expensive hobby, but a dedicated sound system for playing music in a room has been a dream of mine for some time now. We took the plunge when we saw the speaker on sale. We didn't have a receiver, so Amazon was selling one for $100 off. They were all connected to our tv. The sound is amazing. The sound of Lost in Space is just amazing. The speakers are placed on top of the towers and bounce up at the ceiling to create a cool effect. This system is an excellent choice for music. The speakers produce a clear, warm sound that fills a room with beautiful music. The instruments are clear, with the bookshelf and tower speakers shining through to provide a Sony-style sound. The bass seems to be a little confused and not as clear as my headphones. Depending on personal preferences, and the type of audio codec you're using, this will be different. There is a room in my living room that has fabric furniture in it, a large rug, and irregular concrete tile floors that bounce sound all over the place. I have a receiver that pumps up the bass to the point where you can feel it wherever you are in the room. You feel the thump of the engines in your chest when you watch a movie or TV show in space, just like you would in a high end movie theater. It's not as good for music. I've changed my receiver's function to the basic filterless one, but it's still not quite to the level of a good pair of headphones. I don't listen to a lot of bass-heavy music so it's not a big deal for me, but I might consider replacing the sub for something more clear. I'm not saying that you shouldn't purchase the bundle, but it could be that the floors make it difficult to get a clear sound. There is a chance that you will need a bit of tinkering to get things to sound how you want them to. If you can afford it, I highly recommend pushing the buy button if you can find these speakers on a good sale. You will not regret how great they sound.
👤The full set of speakers sound great. I didn't spend a lot of money on my system. If you're from the world of tinny in-TV speakers or sound bars, they sound quite good with a suitable mid-range AVR. These are great family/media room speakers, and I'm familiar with them. Our home has two hard-of-hearing members, and if those with good ears are not present, the volume they put out is enough to get through to them without subtitles. The squares are black. They're hard to hide. This was a hard sell for my family room, which is decorated to the max. The first time I used a video with a camera, we heard a snowstorm. We moved things in the whole room and over our heads.
iPod with Digital Media Port is supported. The rear speaker system includes a wireless system. TheAIR-SA10 is a multi-room capable. 1000 watt over 5 channels. DVD media can be upscaled to 720p/1080i. 1000 watt over 5 channels. TheAIR-SA10 is a multi-room capable.
👤I only had a second Home Theatre in Box in 8 years because I wanted good sound for DVDs. Amazon Prime members can get free 2 day shipping on purchases of $329 or more. On Tuesday afternoon, the product was received. The box was neatly wrapped. Installation was easy, the speakers, wires, and receiver were all colorcoded, making it quick to install. S-air rear speakers worked well. The quick setup CD is a great step by step guide. The look of the material is sleek and contemporary, but the quality is not great. Satellite box is connected to my Sony Bravia TV via antenna and cable. I used an optical cable from the TV to the receiver. 2 tall boy speakers, center speaker and an amplifier up front, and 2 rear speakers via S-air in the rear of the living room countertop. Installation and setup are easy. "1 touch play" plays DVD with one button when both units are off, or when tv is on satellite. When the receiver is turned off, you return to satellite TV. It is possible to upconvert DVD's to high definition. When listening to music, you can get vocals from rear speakers if you press the "Audio" button on the remote. I enjoy the dynamic boost. It's great value for the money, but the system speakers are very low when using satellite TV. The sound is normal when using the TV speakers alone. This problem can't seem to be fixed yet. There is no volume control on the subs. It's not possible to change channels while using satellite. Menu to change functions is not user friendly. Overall, I am very satisfied with this product. It's a great deal. It's great to watch DVD movies or DVD music. This is definitely the system that you are looking for.
👤Pre-divorce in another life. I owned high end systems. The product is very close to systems costing more. Installation is easy. I have other wireless devices in the same room, but I have no problem with the S-AIR rear speakers. I'm amazed at the sound of the speakers. The iPod doc is amazing. I can't speak for the DVD part because I use my PS3 to play it. The video signal is upgraded to a higher resolution. I will leave it to other reviewers to address that. My Sony Bravia with Bravia Link is a bonus. At least in my environment, the sub is crisp and penetrating. I can't recommend this system very highly. Unless you have a lot of money, you can't go wrong. It's a great starter for the beginning home theater enthusiast, and more than adequate for anyone with an ego that will allow them to get a great system at a low cost. I'll add a last comment that has been said before. The receiver has been criticized for not having enough inputs. You can use a digital audio optical cable from the TV to the receiver to connect all your devices.
👤The system has some good features. The wireless speakers are great, but I think the little details make this thing deserving of a 3 star review. The front and center speakers hook up to the back of the receiver and then you have a small wireless amplification module that syncs with the receiver and you hook up your two spherical speakers to that module. 2. I don't like that Sony gives you a specific length speaker wire. What if I need more wire? Sony uses colored plugs that connect to the amplifier. You will end up hooking everything up with a different cable. This is by far the most popular. If we lived in 1998, it's ok to have a 5 dvd changer. I bought a bluray player and Sony decided to add a single input to the theater. What if you had a PS3? You would only be limited by that input. 4. The remote was used for this... If I gave my dad this remote, his head would explode. I also bought a remote for the Harmony. The theater could have been better designed by Sony.
The sound bar has an 800W sound bar. HDCP 2.2 and 4K support will help maintain quality. The design of Hi-Res Audio is stylish. There is compatibility with the Google Home and multi-room listening. There is a receiver-like connection with 3 HDMI inputs. Enjoy high-quality streaming. You can listen to your favorites with the service.
👤The item arrived on time, and not damaged, and Amazon took it back, so everyone could see exactly what I ordered. I had a hard time getting FedEx to let me return it as it was not in a box. They took it after I explained how I received it. I would pay $500 for this, but not $1,000, because it was brand new at retail stores and cheaper here. The sound is not that great for the cost, because the subwoofer randomly disconnected, and the soundbar lost connection, causing you to have to power it off and back on. I've had $300 systems sound better than this one, but adding a sub helps it. This is way overpriced for what it delivers. If it had been $400-$500 I would have kept it and tried to find a way to work around the sub disconnects. Sometimes it seemed like it would help, but I would go down to watch TV and the sub wouldn't wake up, which was confusing. The sound from the bar is not something to write about. I have 8 foot ceilings, and the "reflection" ability was not impressive, and without the sub this bar is just mediocre. I had issues with the connection. I had a device that was ready to go, but I couldn't get off the home page. I would select the right input, it would change over to my device, and then I would see it again in the home menu. I have all the 4K HDMI cables in my setup, so I tried a few different brands. I tested this on other TVs and it worked the same. The sound bar sub setup is not worth the money. Fix the issues and try again Sony.
👤I tried both the Sky10 and the Hw K950, but I was disappointed with the Sky10 because it wasn't compatible with both Dolby Vision and Dolby Digital at the same time, and the Hw K950 wouldn't work with Apple TV. The sound of the Sky10 was terrible, it was hard to hear voices in certain instances, and you can't increase center volume either. I finally bought the Sony bar and it is loud, compatible with all formats, and has great sound effects in ATMOS. It is installed in a room with 9 foot ceilings and a seating position 10 feet from a bar. Excellent job SONY!
👤Sony is the worst. If you have a mesh system, stay away. Sub makes loud popping noises. After 25 hours of trying to fix the issue, I was told by Sony that there is an issue with the mesh systems. My product is still in warranty and they don't have a fix. No replacement was offered by Sony. Nothing. We don't care, your sound will suck forever. We have your money and will not give it back. Bye Sony. People should never buy a Sony product. Their customer support is terrible.
👤The sound quality is below average and the connection to various devices is poor.
The surround sound includes two 50- watt front speakers, two 50- watt surround speakers, and a 50- watt center speaker. The DVDs will upscale to near the quality of the originals when played in this system. You can control all of your BRAVIA sync devices with one remote, including: BRAVIA TVs, home theater products, and Cyber-shot Digital Cameras. A near-HD quality video signal is sent to your television. Control all your Sony BRAVIA Sync enabled devices with one remote control when connected to this system. The front speaker size is 83 x 118 x 100mm. The speaker size is 83 x 118 x 100mm.
👤Average system. It works well. There were no bells. There were no whistles. DVD player is not a video game. There is no optical audio port. The wires were bought and spliced to fit the 14 x 23 ft room. The sound is fine. Motel 6 has sound systems. What do you think the price will be? It serves our purpose just fine.
👤If you are in a small room, this can get loud. Placing the sub in a good location is a must as well as Calibrating this. Since the sub is small, you should move it around the room to get the best bass. It's easier to just hook it up and call it quits, but it will pay off if you set it up. I give it 5 stars for its price and value. When I gave this to my mother in-law as a christmas gift, she never knew what she was missing until she heard the difference between a tv and home theater.
👤The sound is good. I haven't been able to use all of the speakers yet, so I'm not at full capacity. The wire for the back speakers is not very long so I will have to add it eventually. I wish they did more. It will add to the atmosphere once I'm set up. The customer service was helpful and quick. I couldn't figure out why the sound didn't work at first, but they walked through the check points to fix it.
👤I am very disappointed in the product. I paid 100 dollars for it, and I got it in the mail, and it looked great. It was sad when I got it hooked up. The sub does not pound. I have to have the volume turned up all the way up to the sub-woofer, and it's not loud at all. Not a lot. I got this because I wanted to blow it away and piss my neighbors off. This product is not recommended.
👤This is the third system I have purchased, one as a gift and two for myself. I think this is a great buy, and even the base and surround sound is decent. Thanks to Sony and Amazon.com.
👤Money should be spent for better unit. The unit is only good for DVD surround. tv does not sound good because there is no cable box connection. It needs a better remote. The volume is low. I have never experienced Sony quality like this before. It's primitive. ;! I threw the box away. There is a lot of junk.
👤I've had a surround sound system for about nine months. It works well. I have to use the headphone jack to connect it to my tv, so I can't use it fully. It could be louder. The quality is good and I would recommend it. Customer service was very helpful when I needed it.
👤I decided to go for it after reading so many reviews, but the price for the features was too tempting. Installation and set up was easy to follow. I'm not a member of the "digital generation", so I might offer some comfort to those who are technologically challenged. I've learned enough to use the remote, even though I haven't figured out all of the functions. The sound was better than I anticipated. I would recommend this system.
One speaker per carton. Straight from the theater to your home: a built-in speaker with a simple connection. The Bass speaker has a deep sound. It's perfect for small living spaces and has a slim design. Voice enhancement feature makes it easier to hear conference call participants. The TV set up is easy. S-Force Pro Front Surround gives you the sound of all the people around you. In the box is the remote commander, batteries, cable, wall mount template, warranty card, and instruction manual.
👤The sound bar I bought was supposed to replace the poor quality of my speakers. The system is easy to install. The remote control is very good. Simply turn it on or off, and you can switch from TV sound system to sound bar. You can use the TV remote control to adjust the sound volume. I don't like the sound quality. I had expected it to have a graphic equalizer and deep clear bass tones. The audio is clear and crisp, but it doesn't have a good bass response for music, movies, or anything else. I don't think this system is a good idea for anyone who wants to improve their TV's audio quality.
👤I remember getting a shirt-pocket AM transistor radio for 75 cents and 100 bubble gum wrappers in the '60s. I liked that radio, but it sounded terrible. I didn't care back then. The sound quality is better than that. I'm not sure why it would sound so thin and flat. Changing sound settings with the remote made a small change in the sound quality. Everything else was really flattened out, even though "Voice" made dialogue better. Changing cables had no effect. It was easy to install, I just plugged in the power cord and connected to the HDMI port on my TV. It was boom! I was able to control the device with the remote. The sound quality is not good. There's almost no bass, and music is bad. I didn't want to listen to it for 30 minutes. The speakers in the TV set sound better than this one. I've never been this disappointed by a Sony product, so I'd be inclined to think that this unit is faulty or a knock-off. There are glowing reviews, but also a lot of reviews that say that others have had the same experience. I will be looking for something else.
👤Just read the manual to set it up. I connected my soundbar to my TV through a port. When you open the package, you will get a soundbar,remote,AAA battery,digital output cable and manual. Soundbar has a number of features for audio. I recommend buying a Sony Soundbar during Amazon Prime deals because I am satisfied with it. I got this for $100 minus the tax. If you watch the video, I hope you understand the Soundbar or how the difference audio set ups are available.
👤If you're looking for a sound bar to blow the roof off your house, stop reading now and find another product. If you want to upgrade your TV speakers, you've found the perfect product. We were looking for a sound bar to improve the sound quality but not disrupt the house. The sound is loud and clear. The TV speakers have been upgraded. I was not looking for the bass on this TV. This product is very good and I would highly recommend it.
👤The TV we have in the bedroom is great, except for the sound quality, which seems to be a universal issue with flat screen TVs, so I decided to use the soundbar because of the mixed reviews. I was very pleased when we got this device. It's not the one you want for a large TV in a large living room, but it's great for our 47 inch bedroom TV. There are multiple options for voice and audio. The voice choices on the remote help to make the voices clear and understandable, an upgrade from the TV speakers! The included optical cable connected the soundbar to the TV. I did have to turn off my TV speakers, but that was not a problem. I have had a soundbar for about 3 months, and would recommend it to anyone.

👤I like and can tell the difference between good and bad audio components, even though I am not a techie. I have a couple of very expensive home theater setups that use power conditioners and Sony ES components with ridiculous costing and speaker wiring out to Polk LSi speakers and Polk subs. The setup on my desktop is very modest, using a V2 50x50 amplifier and a P1 tube pre-amp with upgraded tubes. All are connected with 12ga twisted pair speaker wiring. I use my laptop to stream audio via the internet. An inexpensive but clean setup. I've been using my LSi7 $800/pair bookshelf speakers and BIC F12 sub for a while. Maybe overkill for a desktop setup. These Sony 3 ways are on sale for $73/pair. They have good reviews. I wanted to get my LSi7's back to their surround positions so I decided to try them out. I was not excited because I was expecting a change in sound. It is a desktop setup for listening at lower volume levels, so I didn't want to spend a lot. Let me tell you something. My Polk LSi7's sound better than the Sony SSCS5 speakers. A better soundstage and better separation make this more detailed. How can this be? For $73.00 for a pair. Come on. I can't believe how good these are. I am listening to an album. I am amazed and flabbergasted. I think I will be doing my critical listening at my computer. I need to see a therapist.
👤I bought these on Amazon for $118. How good could a pair of speakers be? Let me tell you something. It comes to mind. I've been listening to music for 40 years. My method for buying speakers has always been to listen to the best speakers available, ones that I couldn't possibly afford, then work my way down into speakers that are within my budget, but sound as close as possible to my "dream" speakers. These speakers are solid, well-made, and have an incredibly warm and accurate sound. They can easily compete with speakers up to the $500 price range, well compete is not the word, but blow the doors off speakers in that price range is more like it. If you had no idea what speakers you were listening to in a side-by-side comparison, you may find yourself choosing the cheaper ones. That's correct! I said it! It had to be said. I don't know what Sony did to these little buggers, but they are magnificent. The price has gone up one week later and is not just on Amazon. They jumped $30 over night, but are they still worth it? I would pay double after hearing them. I am using them as main speakers in a two-channel scenario, not as surrounds. They are not even "broken in" yet. If you're looking for bookshelf-sized speakers, look no more. Don't let the low price fool you. Cheers!
👤I have experience with speakers in all ranges and have a lot of knowledge about how audio works. There are a few common issues that put me off as a listener, which these speakers have done a great job of avoiding. The speakers under $500 are usually not good because they don't mix well with the loudspeaker in the cabinet and sound like another miss-matched speaker placed on top of your much better mid/low range speakers. They are loud and sound like they are making noise. The sound quality is reduced when the dust protection panel is on. The bass lacks a proper tone. The bass is weak. Bass has a good tone, but relies too much on the addition of speakers that produce lower quality lows/mids. Audio suffers greatly when not placed in the absolute most optimal position, which restricts placement or quality, because of 3-way crossover. I expected to hear at least one of the common problems, even with the good reviews and research. I am blown away by how well these speakers handle these issues. Up close, far away, with a sub, without, placed properly or improperly, used with other speakers or alone, these two mini-monsters absolutely crush all of these issues and sound good while doing it. I'm very critical of audio and I'd have to be prepared to spend 600 dollars on an upgrade if it was worth it. I have these connected to an amplifier and are in a large room with it. I think 6 off the rip. These go above and beyond just making a few right decisions, and are perfect for this size speaker in a home theater. These had all the good design choices. I would highly recommend these if your amplifier can do 6 Ohms. The volume and atmospheric resonance in these are comparable to 8 Ohm 350 watt speakers, so 100 watt is something my power bill is happy to adopt. I'm not worried about ripping them apart because these barely break a sweat, producing a loud, high quality, detailed sound. I will be using these for music at house parties as well as for movies and gaming and so far I've tested them for all three and have yet to be disappointed. I don't recommend these speakers as side speakers as they are too much in your face. Side and rear are different ball games. You could definitely order 6 of these and use them as surround, front, and rear speakers; you just need to equalize them properly. I'm proud to say I own these and I'm even more proud to tell people what I spent on them. These aren't just good for how much they are, they're also great. Unless you're willing to spend a lot of money, there's little-to-no audible difference between these and other very high end speakers and I recommend getting these speakers if you need bookshelf sized speakers. If we completely ignore price and consider 10 the best sound, we will get a final verdict of 8.5/10. If I factor in price and give in to my bass-head type personality, I'll be happy. 98% of the world would consider perfect audio to be a perfect SOB, so 10/10 for anyone who isn't the pickiest SOB in the world. The bass on these are very good and I am talking about what you would expect from a Home Theater speaker. Unless you want to get those huge cabinet speakers that you see in theaters, you are never going to get a sub bass out of a front channel speaker. You aren't meant to, and for good reason. They handle bass incredibly well and do not need a sub to hear it. Please don't think these can replace a speaker. They're called sub- "woofers" because they push air so hard. That's not bass, it's an artificial effect. It's been 2 years and still going strong. Everyone who hears how good this system sounds is blown away, even though I know a lot about the best ways to setup and get the most out of my speakers. Everyone is encouraged to get a setup after hearing how good it is. These compliment my center channel and other speakers as well. I mix these with other speakers and it works. I've been pushing these configurations hard on a weekly basis. I think they work no matter what I do. I am happy to say that the room I have has no tendency to pick up dust, as I haven't had to clean it in a long time. There are a lot of things there. I don't think people understand how rare it is to find a speaker like this in this price range, so I wish I could give these more stars. Hats off to the engineers in Japan that designed this, you guys deserve a pay raise.

👤I was looking for a good sound system. I didn't care if it was able to jump through hoops or not, this one fit the bill nicely. I have a great soundbar with built in subs that is great, but I wanted one for a larger room that would provide even louder and deeper bass. After listening for a few days, I was a little disappointed but knew that speakers and especially subs need to be replaced in time. I've heard that some of the soundbars sell for up to 600 dollars, but this one sounds like it would be a good buy. Some people have experienced sound delays with other soundbars. The voices are clear and the bass is loud enough to make a difference in a movie. I can confirm that music and dvds sound good. If you're able to use a subs, you should place it in different places in the room to see where it will sound best. This is a great buy at 199 dollars and is well worth it.
👤It's okay if you're used to sound bars. I really wanted to like it. I tried every setting and it sounded so compressed. Even at full volume, the sub is not impressive. The living room is twice the size and we just installed a Samsaung sound bar in it. It was paid for at Best Buy. This was installed with a 65" Sony in a media room with carpeting and 8' ceilings. The set up was easy and fast. It sounded better with Steely Dan than it did with the TV, when I turned it on. I will be sending it back so I can get a better sound experience. My thoughts. If you are interested in something that sounds better than your TV speakers, this might be a good idea for you. I would suggest different options if you want something more than average.
👤The sound is really good and it is very easy to use. I downsized from a 7.1 surround setup. If the dialogue is enhanced, I don't think we lost any sound. If I had paid full price, I would have been happy.
👤I have had a Sony sound bar for two weeks. The sound bar was easy to pair with after the user error was corrected. I was initially disappointed with the bass from the sub woofer, but the more I have listened to it, the more I can say it does deliver. It was a good value and it was delivered on time. It was well packaged. It will allow you to pair 9 devices to it, which will allow for a lot of usage. I have it in my master bedroom and it is loud enough. You don't have to use on and off button's. It will turn on and pair automatically if I tell it to do so. When you turn the television off, it will also power off. The price and sound quality are what will make you happy.
