This did everything I expected. Sound quality is great, setup wasn't bad (although I don't like those 'stick the wire in the hole' type connectors for the speakers), and I was able to connect my digital optical devices up the way I wanted. I have my Xbox 360 and Comcast HD box hooked up and they sound great.
The bass is great, but the other speakers just aren't loud enough. To be fair though, I'm not sure we have ajusted it correctly.
This system is great for the price.. the sound is clear and very balanced.. easy to use for the most part, but im more techincial prob that most.... Enjoy some features on it.. Great to customize the options.. This is by far no the best system out there but if you looking for a good sounding unit for a small room or bedroom then this one will work perfectly with out the need of an exspenisve system.. you will not be disapponited with this unit.. So far so good. My only con is that I have to have the remote in the right spot it the remote wont find the sensore on the system..
GREAT UNIT MUST BUY!
I BOUGHT THIS AS A CHRISTMAS PRESENT FOR MY FATHER-IN-LAW. I SET IT UP FOR HIM A FEW DAYS AFTER CHRISTMAS AND EVERYTHING SOUNDS FINE...EXCEPT THE SUB WOOFER. IT'S SO WEAK. WITH IT CRANKED TO FULLEST SETTINGS IT STILL DOESN'T RATTLE A BALL OFF OF THE TV STAND. I HAVE A 7 YEAR OLD 550 WATT KENWOOD SURROUND THAT BLOWS THIS NEWER 800 WATT AWAY IN BOTH SOUND AND POWER OF THE SOUND. RATHER DISAPPOINTING, AND TO ADD A POWERED SUB YOU'RE LOOKING AT ANOTHER 1-200 DOLLARS.
I received my system two weeks ago. I bought it on sale on the web page for $179.00. For the price it does alright. Volume and lack of function are the pitfalls of this system. If you enjoy listening to your movies loud then this is not for you. My wife and I could hold a conversation on the couch with the volume topped out. It also has only one input for a dvd player. I had to swap out the receiver for a more powerful unit. The speakers work really well with the new receiver. Bottom line, If you're looking for power and performance find something just a bit more powerful.
It has 10% THD way too much distortion for something from company who is known for good stereo systems. I bought used it for one day took it back and added $60 to it and got a Pioneer with way better specs and sound for just a little more money. The Pioneer also has better speaker connectors, just a better quality system for a little bit more money.
I wanted to get a system w/o a dvd player, because I have a good Sony dvd player already. Product was very easy to hookup and the remote also works with my Sony dvd player. Fills my 22x16 ft family room very well. Definately worth the every penny, especially in this economy!
You can't go wrong with Sony. When I was looking for a low cost home theater system I didn't expect to get the performance that I got with this system. The setup was pretty straight forward, and the sound is great. I recommend getting the speaker stands and speaker mounting brackets from walmart as well. They really dress up the installation.
I was surprised to find the quality of the product for such a good price. Excellent buy for excellent home theater.
This product is wonderful. Consumer Reports rates it as being the top home theater system for the price. I will say, however, if you have the opportunity to purchase the next step up, the SONY home theater with the 5 disk DVD player, it might be a good idea to do so, as it is wireless, whereas this one is not. But for the price range, this is an AWESOME home theater system!! I am impressed!! I love watching all of my old DVDs and hearing them in SURROUND SOUND!!!! ROCK ON!!!
Like others have said, the Sony HT-DDWG700 is a good deal, probably the best name brand surround sound for the money. ($179.00) Easy to set up, plenty of power, the sound is good. Yes, it does come with the digital coax cable which worked from my Sony Blu-Ray to the Sony HT-DDWG700 but not to my HD-LCD TV, so I used a digital optical cable (not provided) from the TV to the HT-DDWG700. The sub-woofer doesn't plug in to 110v, but it gives off a nice sound too.
Sounds great and would highly recommend this product to others.
I can't say enough about the Sony DDWG700 HT system. This is my second one. The first was puchased for the BR, and based on it's outstanding performance there, I bought another to complete the makeover of the system in my LR. Coupled w/ a Sony Bravia LCD TV and a Sony Blu-Ray player, this HT system does a remarkable job. Connectivity is a snap,(even has an iPod dock) setup is straightforward and the sound is awesome. Sony also gives ample speaker cable (pre-wired to each cube) for most standard sized listening areas. I also purchased ($10) the optional digital optical cord for maximum sound quality patched from the HD cable box. It's well worth the modest price tag, and I wouldn't hesitate to purchase this system for any of my HT audio needs. My PC may get one now...
hey people if you looking for a good home theater system for a good price well you found one right here. all playstation 3 owners its a must get the sound is great one of the best hd sound your going to get for this price. i recommend this product to anyone who looking for a fair deal.
GREAT SOUND AND GREAT PRICE,EASY SET UP
This unit offers great sound, even at its maximum volume. There is no distortion whatsoever. The speakers are not the cheap light ones you get in some home theater systems, they have some weight to them and each of them produces GREAT sound.
The value of this system is unbeatable. For this price, this system beats alot of the systems priced higher (according to Consumer Reports).
Unit met expectations. Installed without a hitch but I thoroughly read the manual beforehand. Excellent fidelity but NOT a gamers unit. Gamers usually have more need for BASE which this unit does not have or in my opinion need. The Sub Woofer is NOT amplified and the unit only has two inputs for digital audio which might be a limitation as most have three inputs for digital audio. Great for watching DVD's and DirecTV which is all I have. Built in Tuner seems to pick up both AM and FM from distant sources. No HDMI pass through. VERY HAPPY with purchase, wish I had done this sooner. Doc
again sony has out done them selfs with this one the sound quality of the product is of the charts even with the tiny spearks that it comes with and thats saying alot since the set i was use to were pioneer so in short great product & even beter value
The only issue is that the remote control does not easily engage the receiver for some reason. You have to hold it just right and point it just so in order to get it to turn on and off the receiver.
great product perfect for small apt or room.
