I must first admit that I selected this system because of the price. Before deciding on this one in particular however, I did much research, at walmart, amazon, bestbuy, etc.. I initially wanted a 2.1 surround system because I too dislike having to wire 2 speakers up behind me and hide the wires, etc... But they were so much more expensive and as I'd read, not even that good. I looked into getting a soundbar, but then I would be missing out on the bass, at least with most soundbar packages. I decided that at the very least, I could buy this system at the low price, and only use the front 3 speakers and the subwoofer, even if I never use the rear to speakers, I still get the sound I am looking for, cheaper than with a soundbar or 2.1 system. After installing and setting up the sony system, (which is remarkably user friendly, and loaded with more options than you'll find on your DVD/Surround system), I was first upset that I did not have any on-screen programming, obviously because it did not have and video outputs to get to the tv.. this was easily overlooked though because I bought this system for sound, not video. After getting used to the LCD readout on the actual unit, and setting it up to my liking, I could find very little to fault this setup. The sound is plenty good enough for my liking, yes, it's no super future technology mp3 laser encoding photon light sensitive decible producing piece of alien equipment.. but for the non-audiophile, this is more than adequate.
