Bought this a few weeks back and after a lot of experiments, got a few points to share.
Pro:- Good Sound quality. Audio is clear and there is no humming or cracking on both Low and High volumes. Definitely has got enough punch to vibrate a few things around it. Looks decent. Bluetooth connection is fast and reliable. Simple remote control. Has different preset audio modes for Movie, Music, Sports and they are definitely different from each other. Also noticed there are many options in the audio settings which can be explored and they do give you some different experience.
Has got Optical input, HDMI ARC and Analog input and that’s good because like in my case HDMI ARC was not working on my TV and I had to buy an optical cable and got it connected to the TV through it.
Cons:- It’s wired and hiding wires is a mammoth task. USB can’t play most of the formats and I find it useless for that reason. It can’t play most of the common movie formats and sometimes fails to play even some MP3 as well. Couldn’t experience surround sound and may be that’s because we don’t get Dolby content on our Airtel DTH. As someone said in the reviews rear speakers are useless and paralysed But you can make them work if you go to Menu>SPK>Place and change it to Front and it will activate your rear speakers. No installation support by Sony. For the features, it seems to be overpriced.
