I bought this item this week and have to say that yet again Sony makes an amazing product! But before you even think about getting your credit card out, ask yourself what are you buying it for?
Music? Movies? Games? or just for an overall surround sound experience?
I personally got this system for my PS3
I thought since I have the Sony Bravia TV and the PS3 is Sony as well, the connectivity should be piece of cake.... well I was wrong
After a lot of desperate research I had to buy a digital optical cable (£17 - Maplins) that runs from my PS3 to the amp, and only then i managed to get all the speakers working while using the PS3
When I tried to watch tv throught the speakers I used the hdmi output running from the tv to the amp... but that didnt work?!? I only got a picture on a seperate channel for the dvd's,
For the tv to play through the surround speakers I will either have to use the SCART connection or the more commonly known 3 audio cables (red, yeloow, white)
So look exactly at the connection your tv and other stuff and think how you're gonna connect it all up with this system which in my opinion, could have had a little more connections available. Another downside is the setting up of the speakers. The screws arent very durable and you dont wana run the wrong cable to the wrong speaker, and then having to do it ALL again... trust me, been there!
But overall after settig it all up, it's an amazing system, which in other places goes for £400! It's sounds as good as it looks.
Crystal clear sound which I'd never dare to play max volume!
