I have tried logitech, samsumg products before. But I never had satisfaction. But after buying this sony product, am just too happy.
It's worth buying..
- you get fantastic sound systems - HDMI integration works perfectly - I bought SONY Bravia with this and I have now a perfect home theatre syetsm - Surrond systems are so good, you will feel the difference of using Sony - It's easy to assemble the products - Sony gives long cables and thus you can place your speakers properly based on 5:1 structure - USB connection and Music files work perfectly fine
Replacement for 14 year old Sony system, was not looking forward to setting up but as in a previous review REALLY EASY and hadn't realised just how bad old system was! Would highly recommend seller "hyperfi" too
Product very well packaged. Delivery also was very quick. Everything is fine so far ! The home cinema is as expected from the seller's description, no bad surprises except that the USB entry doesn't read videos.
Well I spent some time on the net checking out various systems and I can say that I am more than happy with my purchase. I have now set it up and I must say it went very well I found it easy to set up and the manual is easy to understand. The sound and picure quality is excellent and I cant wait until I get my sky HD next week and have that coming through the speakers. The mic which helps set up the sound of the speakers is a great help and very easy to use with the help of the manual. When I was setting it up my wife who was out the back garden thought the house was coming down when I cranked up the volume with a war dvd I had on, the woofer is amazing and there is no way I could ever have the volume anywhere near its max. Even playing the TV through the speakers is quality. The only 1 thing that got me was that I thought the display had a clock but I can live with that. So for me this is very much value for money and I give it a big 10 out of 10. So take it from me go for it.
I got this product couple of weeks back and must say I am very impressed with it. I was choosing between Sony DAV-DZ260 and this one. I am glad I bought this one. It is a 100£ more but worth as the Tallboy design makes it look more elegant.
Heres my view on the product.
Setup Very easy to setup. Instructions are very clear to assemble it. Most of the default settings give a crisp output. Plenty of wiring supplied.
Looks It looks great. It adds character to your Living room. The stands are sturdy and heavy. It worth to buy this as you would anyways pay 50-60£ for stands.
Quality Just Great. I have used other 5.1 cinema systems, this one is right up there. Crytal clear Sound. I use it with my Sky+ HD box which has Dolby 5.1ch output and have connected it through an Optical Audio input to the home cinema system. The Output is fantastic. You can hear every small detail. Action movies will have you sitting up on your sofa.. Have seen quite a few movies and it really gives the Cinema effect. Subwoofer will have your neighbours at your doorsteps. Its good. Even listening to the radio is pleasure..
DVD player Havent used it much but tested a few DVDs. Picture quality looks good. It does upscale the picture. You can see the difference.
It does what its supposed to do.. I would have loved it even more, if it had a couple of HDMI inputs as well(Present in the later models. Something to consider when u are buying a Home Cinema as most TVs, set top boxes, game consoles and Bluray players today have HDMI outputs. Make managing all these easy).
All in all.. A Must have.. Very happy with the product.
This cinema system is VALUE for money. I read many reviews and based on my own opinion I agree with everyone. I purchase this system yesterday and I am very very impressed with the quality of the sound and the price. The surround sounds is fantastic and makes you feel as if you are actually in a cinema. playing audio is brilliant, its crystal clear and sounds perfect, subwoofer is no joke, it will make you move. The set up is a bit time consuming but put it this way, your putting together a brilliant system so time is of the essence. Once the system is setup the modifications are very quick and simple. The machine more or less does everything for you anyway by a few clicks of a button.
To all of you who like to use the surround sound when watching standard TV, you will need a scart lead. Other than that the HDMI cable will do the rest for DVD/Blu Ray Players, so bare this in mind. This makes movie's all the more enjoyable
I have had this surround sound system for approx. 1 week and I am extremely impressed with the sound quality. The base speaker produces really deep reverberating, spine tingling, sounds. Explosions can be felt physically. At the same time the centre speaker reproduces spoken words that are distinct and clearly audible no matter how much background noise there is. The other four speakers produce the surround sound effect and these also do the job admirably.
At the centre of the system is the up-scaling DVD player. This seems to work very well also (though I have rarely used this as most things I have watched have been played through a Play Station 3).
The system was very easy to set up and comes with a calibration microphone. For me this was essential as my room layout is not square and the rear left speaker is much closer than the rear right speaker. The setup facility worked flawlessly and adjusted the relative volumes of the speakers perfectly.
There are only two very minor criticisms' I could make. 1) I don't really like the layout of the remote control which seems cluttered. 2) the different input sources are given names that are not always accurate for instance my Play Station is connected via a digital optical cable which this system calls the TV for some reason.
Don't let these minor criticisms put you off though. I think the sound quality is just as good as being at the cinema hence why I am giving this product 5 stars.
Got this product at the start of Feb this year done a bit of searching on the net decided on this home cinema system since setting it up I've not been let down one bit the crisp clean sound just cant be beat and the bass shakes the room i have it running through my PS3 game sound is class but watching a blue ray the first one i watched was transformers the scene in the base its as if i was there .I strongly recommend this item if your a big game and movie fan like you cant go wrong BUY THIS !!!!!!
