Cutting-edge sound technology
Slot a transmitter module into the rear of your system to make the rear speakers of your compatible S-AIR ready Sony surround system wireless. Thanks to auto calibration, the system ensures that each speaker is properly balanced so you get perfect acoustics, regardless of where the speakers are located. The BDV-E370 supports four audio codecs -Dolby® TrueHD, Dolby® Digital Plus, DTS-HD High Resolution Audio and DTS-HD Master Audio. These compress and decompress digital audio to ensure superior sound quality.

Simple, multimedia connections
You can connect a wide range of USB devices straight to your home cinema system. From mp3 players to cameras, laptops to camcorders - even content from your USB memory stick - just plug in to enjoy your favourite multimedia files on screen. You can stream movies, music and photos to your TV from compatible devices, such as your laptop, mobile phone or music player, no matter where in the home they're located, thanks to DLNA technology. BRAVIA Sync lets you control other Sony devices you've connected using your BRAVIA TV remote control.

24p True Cinema technology for films as the director intended
With 24p True Cinema technology you can sit back and enjoy movies exactly as the director filmed them. Until now, if you watched a movie at home you'd see it played back slightly faster than at the cinema because standard TVs deliver images at 25 frames a second. Select 24p True Cinema for a more authentic movie experience.

Easy iPod playback and remote control function
Plug in your iPod Classic, Nano or Touch to playback your iTunes music collection in great Sony sound quality. There's no need for a specific docking station, you simply connect directly via USB. And if you want to display your photos and home movies, simply connect your flash drive via USB and watch away. You can eventurn your iPhone® or iPod touch® into a remote. With the free BD remote app you can operate and control your Blu-ray Disc Player as well as access detailed movie information like cast, director, genre and more.

Choosing the right Sony Home Theatre System for you
If you're looking for an all-in-one home theatre system, Sony has three great Blu-ray home theatre models to choose from. All the great features such as catch-up TV, 3D Playback and auto calibration apply across the range. In fact, the only differences between the models are speaker options. The BDV-E370 is the core model, whilst the BDV-E670 (released in June 2010) will feature rear wireless speakers to free your lounge from cable clutter. The BDV-E870 (released in April 2010) has two tallboy front speakers and a more powerful sound for the serious home cinema enthusiast.

    This is a review for the Sony BDVE370.CEK 5.1 ch Blu-Ray Home Cinema System as listed on Amazon.co.uk

    So, we said to ourselves... "We really need to replace our broken down surround system, what should we get?". Well, I'd wanted something that could bring together all my media needs for a while and so thought this the perfect opportunity to look in to what was new on the market!

    Almost straight away I stumbled upon this Sony BDVE370 player because, well, it had such good reviews and appeared to do everything! It had 5.1 surround, could play Blu-ray, was 3D ready, could up-sample DVDs, Stream media from the internet and your local PC, and had a wizzy interface... Could it be the perfect home cinema system?

    Well, we bought it and now I can tell you what I think.

    1) Installation - No issues here, unpack it, plug it in and off you go. For those that are interested the speaker cables are very thin, the front ones are 3m each and the rear ones are like 8 to 9m I'd say? (These were not long enough for my room, so I had to splice `em!). There is only one power cable required for the whole system which is a boon. The included sound calibration mike then helped to get everything, umm, calibrated! I did however decide to drop the subwoofer down by 2db as it sounded a little over powered compared to the satellites.

    2) Connectivity - I did not want to go down the route of buying Sony's wireless dongle, so I bought a homeplug networking kit. Was mildly worried about whether it would work, but it's just great and from the moment I plugged it in it has worked flawlessly (At £40 for a pair or reusable network points it was a no brainer).

    I have owned this setup since September 2010 and I am still at a loss to properly describe the quality of this unit, Stunning and Outstanding do not even come close.

    I have recently been struggling to find a decent Blu Ray homne cinema system. I first bought the Samsung HT-BD1220 2.1 ch Blu-ray Home Cinema System and had to return it because of excessive fan noise. Next to be tried was the LG HB354BS 2.1 ch Blu-ray Home Cinema System - this too suffered from some fan noise but also seems to have been abandoned by LG as far as firmware updates are concerned - luckily I was able to return this to the company I bought it from due to a technical problem with they system. I thank the day I bought the Sony - it really is in a whole different league. The previous 2 systems I had tried were 2.1 because of the price issue - I did not have a load of money to spend, however on the return of the LG I spotted that the Sony had finally dropped to a price that allowed me to buy it.

    Now for the review...
    Setup was simple - the Sony comes with a calibration mic that meant the system sorted out its own speaker distances and levels. Took about 2 minutes. Job done.

    The speaker cables are plenty long enough and have proprietry plugs on the end that connects to the player - these are colour coded to the speaker backs and so it is not possible to get this wrong.

    The speakers are small and unobtrusive but don't be put off by their size, they pack a powerful punch when needed. Sound is just superb.

    I purchased this system after reading the highly complimentory review in "Which" magazine, and reading the reviews on here. However it was with a lingering sense of "have I ordered the right thing" that I waited for it to arrive.

    Arrive it did, it was easy to set up cables and speakers all colour coded, but DO use the calibration mic to set the speakers up, it takes a few minuetes but essentail if your going to get the best from the surround sound, also if your not able to place the speakers "symetricaly" in your room the speaker set up will allow for this. I also used very high quality HDMI/Optical/LAN cable for the internet setup.
    How good is it? Well this Sony system is "absolutely awesome" sound quality and picture are just amazing, The DVD "upscaling" feature on your existing DVD's is likewise very impressive, giving you a far better picture and sound quality on your existing films etc, It plays Audio CD's with a crisp clear uncluttered sound, classical music sounds as though your in the middle of the orchestra, and every thing is just terrific. I have viewed systems three times as expensive and they just dont compare to this product, if your looking to buy a Blu-Ray home cinema system then get this one (it's on an even better offer now than when I purchased it, still I dont mind the few quid difference) trust me you will NOT be dissappointed.

    Saving Private Ryan on Blu-Ray full Dolby 5.1 Surround sound is an experience not to be missed.

    Do I recccomend it? Most certainly, a resounding YES!
