Good product - when it worked!
from Glasgow, United Kingdom
Comments about Sony 5.1 Surround Sound Blu-ray Home Theater System:
We were very impressed with this when we got it. Surround sound was very good and even sound from TV was much better. Menu is familiar due to previous Sony products.Main problem was when playing video from Amazon Prime. The unit would freeze during almost everything that we watched and would not respond to the remote control and required unplugging at the mains and being left for some time before being switched on again. Less than a month after getting it, it switched itself off whilst watching Amazon and, although power was getting to the unit, it did not respond to the remote control or any of the buttons on the unit.Disappointed at having to return the unit as we were impressed with the sound when it worked but very disappointed that it failed in less than a month and the continuing problems when trying to watch Amazon.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

Ease of set up , wireless rear speaker set
By Digger 27
from Colwyn Bay North Wales
Found it at right price - might be last years model but ticked all the boxes required including potential for 4k upgrade. Easy to set up and quite intuitive in its interface .Radio/wireless rear speaker pair was a must to assist in establishing the full surround sound. Number of pre-set sound modes which are handy if like concerts /music arena playbacks off YOUTUBE and the like. Good sound but might improve if used better cables but that needs proving if go by hifi enthusiasts - slight lack of bass notes from front pair/mid.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
System is Just AWFUL
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.
Sound is superb! Smart features work well enough. Great system overall LOVE IT
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
from Caledonia, MI 49316, USA
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.
from Phoenix, AZ, USA
Great sound. Personally recommend for medium size room. Easy to set up and use
