System is Just AWFUL
Comments about Sony 5.1 Surround Sound Blu-ray Home Theater System:
I have ONLY purchased Sony since my dad worked for the company for 30 years. But this system is just awful! It rarely ever turns on recognizing the Vios cable box, the radio antenna is poor, Netflix also has an error but internet is connected (it's the system not recognizing the Netflix), forget about playing a DVD. It takes up to 30 minute of pressing the various functions for the system to recognize being connected to the cable box and TV or unplugging and re-plugging countless times. We have to set aside up to half hour (sometimes longer) when planning on watching TV. I have already replaced the unit 3 times, hoping that I will get a unit that does not have any bugs. Now when it eventually starts working, I am pleased with the sound and picture. U believe Samsung is a better picture quality, but I am Sony loyal. Sony needs fix these problems for the future models and ensure better quality in production or they will lose a valued and loyal customer in me to Samsung.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
Great Sound, Slow Reaction time.
It was very easy to connect. Great deal for the money. The only issue that didn't make it a 10 -10 was the reaction time, first when you turn it on and then when you switch inputs. We use all of them up to and including the USB, Blueray, cable, internet and Gaming.
Great Home Theatre Sound System
Great product for anyone who's looking for a great sound system for their living room entertainment system. It provides all the latest media access that you could think of while maintaining rich quality sound. Installation and system setup was very simple to grasp.
Excellent sound quality, good value, NOT wireless

I bought the BDV 5200W model and have set up in my home. This is a very good quality system with lots of great features. Even the FM radio sounds like a Bose without paying the high price for it. I would definitely recommend to anyone looking for a good quality home theater system without breaking the budget. Buyers beware- rear speakers are NOT wireless. The amplifier system allows you to plug into a different outlet, but wires are still used to power the rear speakers from the amplifier. I bought this unit thinking the rear speakers were battery powered, which they are not.

Like being at the game!
The Sony Blu-Ray HTS is incredible. It was like being at the Super Bowl without the hassle. The sound and clarity are unmatched. The Blu-Ray player works flawlessly with depth of picture and color unlike anything I have experienced. And the online selection of entertainment is unmatched as well. I highly recommend purchasing a Sonly HTS. No one will regret it!
Couldn't be better. Just like being in the Movie theatre only less inconvient and better seating. 5 thumbs up.

Great sound. Personally recommend for medium size room. Easy to set up and use
Firmware update broke it
System worked great. Sound was very nice from all speakers. Issue happened when I updated the Firmware which I was suggested to do. Once updated it broke the system and the receiver would no longer take the signal. I had to return the entire system to Sony for them to replace. Quite frustrating.
