Andrew, Music listener

Score 4.0/10
Good points:
Not bad for the money and a real improvement over the tinny LCD TV sound.
Bad points:
Overall disappointed. I got it to replace an older Sony system that was noisy but found that this system to be noisy as a result of a fan which goes on - which you can hear at low volumes. I bought it to be compatible with my Sony TV but you still need two remotes and the integration is not as straight forward as you would like. Would like something a little more plug an play

sridharan, Music listener

Score 8.0/10
Good points:
Setting up is easy
Bad points:
clarity in few areas in the instruction manual could be improved. For example, my Toshiba LED TV do not ARC funtion in HDMI port. I found an instruction to use optical cable to play TV audio in SONY player, but i could not do so. Now i gave the audio ouput from set top box to SONY player directly and its working now. Problem my set up box has got convetional AV cable output not optical or HDMI

laurence, London

Score 5.0/10
Good points:
OK at the price. Blu ray player very good.
Bad points:
The set first supplied was faulty and would not come out of standby unless turned off for several hours, and it was a bit of a hassle to get it replaced. The sound system is ok but not a patch on the old (10 years plus) Sony system it was bought to replace. Speakers seem flimsy and sub woofer is not as powerful as it should be. There is insufficient ability for the user to control sound quality (eg no equaliser, only a poor choice of pre-sets). The display is very difficult to see from any distance.
