This system was purchased to replace various components and to work with a Bravia TV. All works perfectly and the remote control almost totally replaces that of the TV (mute doesn't mute the TV sound when the theatre system is not on). Set-up time was around 30 minutes. Have also purchased the connector for ipod which the remote control drives perfectly. Sound quality is excellent.
I wanted to replace my hi fi separates with large speakers and get rid of all the cables. This unit gives superb sound and dvd image and is easy to set up. It also looks great and takes up very little space. I have connected it to the cable tv box and the tv surround sound is fantastic.
