Rated 4 out of 5 by from No Regrates I bought this soundbar speaker combo for about 2 months ago when it was on a sale from JB and I must say I have no regrets for the purchase. I wanted to add additional sound to my home projector system and it certainly serves the purpose for me without breaking the bank. Overall sound quality is good as the specification says it gives total 600 W output which is decent for a small theatre room gives noticeable surround effect. Some people may feel that it lacks a little bit on Bass but I found it alright because I have placed woofer closed to the sitting arrangements.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Honest review I bought this system about a month ago and im not dissapointed. I would say you get what you pay for, but maybe a little on the expensive side. The sound quality is decent *thumbs up*. Just the bass is a bit lacking. Only complaint is untangling the rear soeaker wires. It was a headache

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Great Speakers with Major Flaws I love SONY Products. However this one dropped the bar.I read the reviews about the Bass Volume, but I thought I could manage. But It's not good enough. Here's my 5 Star Review 1 Star for Price 1 Star for Easy Set Up 1 Star for Sound Quality -1 Star for Fail Bluetooth (It started clicking) -1 Star for Bad Bass Volume (My Logitech computer speakers had better Bass Quality) Overall I had to return it, because I couldn't play any bluetooth device and the lack of Bass wasn't good for Movies.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Okay, but flawed. On paper a great product, but unfortunately not as good as it should be. Has the following annoyances: 1) No DTS - What!! Therefore, many music DVDs and movies that have DTS only won't play in surround, and you have to change TV settings to hear sound at all. 2) HDMI audio return channel is really flaky. On a Samsung TV, it would work one day, then not the next, so not usable. Better to use SPDIF connection. 3) Sound quality is unremarkable.The big, heavy subwoofer offers very poor bass, even when it is turned up full volume. Adjustments to sounds and effects are limited. 4) The phone app which can control the unit is very basic - the software looks unfinished. Only a small subset of settings can be changed. Pity because changing settings from the remote is complicated, and some setting changes seem to have no effect. Also note that on many TVs (including my Samsung), Dolby Digital won't pass through from an external source, such as a media player. Must bi-pass the TV, via an SPDIF cable splitter. On the plus side, it is easy to set up and the surround does work. When playing stereo, the rear speakers also produce the stereo signal at lower volume, so you get a room-filling effect. For similar price or not much more, you could get a real surround system, which would be far superior.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Clear sound not powerful enough. Sound is very clear but mids are low, not powerful enough. It's Dolby effect at high volume is good but doesn't suit the name Home theatre.
