Rated 1 out of 5 by Robin2014 Not satisfied
bought this system and played one disc but when I placed the second disc in the tray starting opening and closing and the display reads SC101. The manual is saying to contact a Sony dealer to get the meaning of this code but in my country there is no dealer.... This system didn't give me 2 hours service. Still trying to get the meaning of this code.

I'm sorry, but It does not support dolby digital plus which is now the standard for streaming. This means no surround sound from netflix or vudo, Don't know how long Amazon and Blockbuster will continue supporting plain Dolby Digital, but I think it's safe to say they won't be supported forever.
Furthermore, it has a receiver powered (normal speaker) subwoofer, which most receivers do not support. So if you upgrade, you are looking at total replacement (new receiver and speakers). Sony appears to have discontinued this idea, so there is no current path to upgrade.
It is now defunct. Too bad cause it is a nice and powerful system!

Rated 2 out of 5 by Clarkson06 Kinda Iffy ..
Let me start by saying I'm by no means a audiophile, but I do know good sound quality when I hear it.
Sony really let me down with this product. I understand that this home theater system is priced well for a economy system. With that said though its still over-priced for not having a blu-ray player. I took the bait thinking the 1000w system would make up for the lack of not having the blu-ray player, because I was really looking for a system that would be good for just watching good movies on our cable & netflix because we simply don't watch many dvds.
I have a soundbar alone set up in my other room with a wireless sub that blows this Sony theater system away, & it was just a fraction of the price.
You are very limited on the settings, its very standard. You are not able to control nothing in all reality. The sub is a major issue as it seems too get most of the juice coming from this system, tends too be way too loud and over takes the other speakers. Sad thing is, I'm the type of guy that likes a lot of bass with movies & music, but this is just too much at times and completely ruins the effect. Would be nice too control the bass, but you can't. I can control the bass on the sub included with my $40.00 Computer speaker system, why not this one? Lol.
So with that said, in this price range I do believe that there are way better products out there. Most that even include a blu-ray player at the same price. Do you're homework and research online, find a truly good product worth dropping your hard earned money on.
